A Detroit Lion On Tim Tebow: 'That's Your Quarterback? Seriously?'

A week ago Tim Tebow was on top of the world. Then came Sunday against the Lions, when he was sacked seven times, threw a pick six, fumbled three times, and the Broncos got blown out by 35 points at home. And from Michael Silver at Yahoo! Sports, here's a Lions player after Sunday.

"Can you believe ’15’?" Come on – that’s embarrassing. I mean, it’s a joke. We knew all week that if we brought any kind of defensive pressure, he couldn’t do anything. In the second half it got boring out there. We were like, ‘Come on – that’s your quarterback? Seriously?’"

Hmm.

So what's more insulting: that Tebow's peers are embarrassed on his behalf, that they openly admit to boredom playing against him, or that they think it's an ongoing practical joke that he's actually starting in the NFL? None of the above, you guys. Stick and stones can break his bones, but words can never hurt a gritty fighter, because all he does is find a way to win.
