Gino Torretta sucked and should never have won a Heisman. Tebow pretty much carried the UF team and Gino couldn't hold his jock strap. Tebow has always been a winner at everything he's done. Having said that, I don't think there's a place for him in the NFL and he would be smart to continue to ride whatever fame he once had for as far as he can into a new career.

He doesn't need football to be successful and he if was going to play, he is not going to be a blocker. He it's only going to be worth it for him if he going to have the ball in his hands and often.
The "Tebow Brand"? Playing QB in the NFL has nothing to do with the "Tebow Brand" in fact, he isnt playing QB in the NFL right now, and judging by how the kid is making out, the "Tebow Brand" is doing pretty damn well right now. He's making more money than you or I put together. So im not really sure what you're trying to say.

He doesnt move to fullback because he wants to play quarterback. its all he's ever played. The reason he hasnt move to fullback is because his desire to play qb in the NFL outweighs his desire to just play football in the NFL.

And for the record....The Commercial is hilarious.

So ironic that the only reason I clicked on this was to see a SS meltdown. Kind of disappointed.

This is why I think Tebow should embrace a new career. I just don't know what it is.

He wasn't a bust though

I've always been a Tebow fan. Rather my kids look at him as a role model than say that loud mouth jackass #25 from Seattle. Same with Peyton, big fan of his too. Just seem like good people.

I never said I ever had a problem with him wanting to be a celebrity or TV Personality. I more have a problem with his fans not realizing that sooner or not wanting to believe he is a showman, and most think he is just so salt-of-earth, that there is no hype about the guy, that he is all what-you-see-is-what-he-is. And that when gives these dramatic speeches he isn't playing to crowd a bit. He's been working on his brand and his persona since he was in college. Good for him. It was a smart move. He is going to make more doing what he is doing now than he would playing fullback in the NFL and he is going to save his body. If he didn't have that fame to lean on you could bet he would take his $800,000 a year or whatever they would give him. But he doesn't have to, so he's not.

That was an awesome commercial. I think he has finally found his thing. TV.
