Tebow released by Patriots

What say you now?

http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports...w-cut/2750815/

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the New England Patriots have released quarterback Tim Tebow:

Tebow admitted he wasn't sure if he'd done enough to stick Thursday night.

He was 6-for-11 for 91 yards, throwing a pair of touchdown passes and one interception, and gained 30 yards on six carries against the New York Giants. But he also was sacked four times.

"Go to sleep when I get home, wake up, come work out, watch the film," he answered regarding his immediate plans. "See what I did good, see what I did bad, try to learn from it and get better."

Tebow's 36.7% completion rate ranked last among all qualified passers this preseason. He's thrown for 145 yards, two TDs and two interceptions in three games, compiling a 47.2 QB rating. His rushing numbers are more appealing as his 16 attempts garnered 91 yards.

Re: Tebow released by Patriots

Its time the young man put his ego aside and started learning the TE position, if he wants to remain in the NFL.

I don't know for sure, but its been suggested several times that his NFL future is as a TE or H-back. Obviously its not QB.

Not surprised ... just a side note item but I read Matt Leinhart & Vince Young were cut as well. Two former Heisman trophy winners who can't throw.

No heisman winner forgets how to throw a football ... They get drafted to terrible teams with overconfident cheesy coaches that try and change their mechanics ... We know what happens when you let them do their thing ( spread option ) but bring him in as an h back

Seriously? He won the heisman because of his passing ability? Bilichick a cheesy coach? Your right, he ruined Brady.
