Jeff Garcia’s advice to Jets: Get rid of Tim Tebow now

New York Jets v Buffalo Bills Getty Images

If Jeff Garcia was in John Idzik’s chair as general manager of the New York Jets, there’s one thing he would make sure happened before offseason workouts begin Monday.

Get rid of Tim Tebow.

According to Jim Corbett of the USA Today, Garcia believes the Jets would be better off releasing or trading Tebow now than to have him be a part of offseason workouts with the team.

“If there’s going to be competition at the position, it’s not going to come from Tim Tebow,” Garcia said. “Having Tebow there (last season) just became more of a distraction, more of a circus show. Obviously, it’s their decision. But from an outsider looking in, having Tebow there doesn’t bring anything positive. It just brings distraction.”

Garcia believes that the only viable quarterback competition for Mark Sanchez would come from David Garrard or Greg McElroy. Keeping Tebow on the roster will do nothing for the Jets except to continue the sideshow that paraded over the team last season.

Garcia has been working with Sanchez this offseason in trying to help improve his understanding of the West Coast offense that will be run by new Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg. Garcia played under Mornhinweg in San Francisco and Philadelphia and is preparing Sanchez to know what to expect in the new offense.

Garcia said the Jets moving on from Tebow would be beneficial for everyone involved.

“When you’re a quarterback, you don’t need artificial competition,” Garcia said. “And it’s not fair to Tim to put him through all that. If there’s a place for Tim that gives him a chance to be a contributor in an offense with another team, let him go be that guy.”

    Common it’s the jets. The biggest circus in the NFL.

  2. floridaslonechargersfan says: Apr 12, 2013 1:17 AM

    Has Jeff Garcia been reading the PFT comments? Because lots of good folks on here have been giving the Jets that advice for free since last March.

  3. ozymandias121 says: Apr 12, 2013 1:19 AM

    YEAH!!!! Jeff Garcia is looking for another guy to steal money from by promising them another chance at the NFL!!!!

  4. josephgattuso says: Apr 12, 2013 1:20 AM

    I don’t understand. Did Tebow NOT have 314 yards against the Steelers? Did he NOT make some extremely difficult passes in that game? Why do people act like he’s the worst quarterback in the NFL. It’s stupid. He does best when he just is in shotgun, and a regular offense with receivers running actual routes.

    Yes, his delivery sucks. But he has very good pocket awareness and doesn’t throw interceptions very often. He’s better than freakin Mark Sanchez.. C’mon.

  5. gloryfromheaven says: Apr 12, 2013 1:22 AM

    Weird how right after Tebow led the Broncos all the way to the divisional round in the playoffs he’s most likely never going to play in this league again…

  6. blackngold4life says: Apr 12, 2013 1:22 AM

    He’s right..the jets already took away one year from that dude..Why handcuff him if you not gona let him Play?

  7. laserrocketarm12 says: Apr 12, 2013 1:24 AM

    Garcia would start for the Jets and honestly be more productive than Sanchez probably.

  8. manderxcom says: Apr 12, 2013 1:25 AM

    The Truth has been spoken…

  9. Phil Menas says: Apr 12, 2013 1:26 AM

    The Tebow Phenomenon (a QB craze for a QB that isn’t a QB) is over. Jeff Garcia has a better chance of getting the starting job in New York tomorrow….. But then again, he’s probably better than any of those candidates.

  10. kenstabler says: Apr 12, 2013 1:43 AM

    I just want to know what makes Jeff Garcia think he can comment on any QB.

    What did you ever do Jeff? Average you were.

    Retire, check into the old folks home in the bay.

  11. thehatefulnerd says: Apr 12, 2013 1:48 AM

    That’s my advice too.

  12. itssocoldinthed says: Apr 12, 2013 1:52 AM

    This is good advice, if a bit obvious. But knowing Woody Johnson and his preference for cameras and tabloid headings over a sound, competitive football team, it will never happen.

  13. ramitbaby says: Apr 12, 2013 1:54 AM

    People are idiots. Tim Tebow got the Broncos just as far as Peyton Manning did.

  14. daknight93 says: Apr 12, 2013 2:00 AM

    Good Grief! Jeff Garcia does makes sense and the Jets brass should just let Tebow go…Jeff Garcia was a bum during his playing days and it takes a bum to recognize a bum in Tim Tebow, but the Jets seem to like the baggage and drama in their organization with Tebow and Revis…just so sad tho

  15. arrogantnation says: Apr 12, 2013 2:11 AM

    Jamarcus Russell is a bum

  16. keyspirate says: Apr 12, 2013 2:13 AM

    “Garcia has been working with Sanchez this offseason “

  17. cardmagnet says: Apr 12, 2013 2:13 AM

    Jeff Garcia would know about being a waste of a roster space.

  18. goldrush36 says: Apr 12, 2013 2:20 AM

    Cant say I disagree but it’s also impossible to say Garcia is just an outsider looking in when he is personally tutoring Sanchez. As sad as it may be I still think Tebow is better

  19. discosucs2005 says: Apr 12, 2013 2:23 AM

    That’s nice of Garcia to throw in the token “give Tim a chance somewhere else” line, but where?

    The Florida teams don’t seem interested, the teams with QB gurus for coaches like Jim Harbaugh, and Shanahan already have their QBs.

    The Raiders, Cardinals, and Bills all traded for their own stopgaps which indicates that they’re planning on drafting someone within the next few seasons.

    And then you have to take out the teams with franchise (in terms of both skill or contract, so counting guys like Newton and Bradford) QBs.

    That leaves the Browns, maybe the Eagles, the Vikings, and the Titans as the only possible teams.

    I think it’s fair to say that Chip Kelly would have already made a play if he wanted Tebow. The Browns just drafted a guy, the Vikings seem willing to stick with Ponder, and the Titans seem willing to stick with Locker.

    There isn’t a single team that he’s got a better chance of playing for than the Jets.

    His best chance at this point is to go to a team with a clear starter. The Seahawks said they don’t want him, the 49ers have been happy with Tolzien and traded for Colt McCoy, the Redskins have Cousins, and I doubt the Panthers would risk a QB controversy with Newton, so all the obvious teams are out.

    He can’t go to Denver, but if he can somehow sneak his way onto the Pats, the Packers, the Steelers, or some other team like that, have their QB go down, and play well enough to convince some other team to make a trade for him, he’ll have one more shot.

    Unless that happens, he’s done.

  20. seanx40 says: Apr 12, 2013 2:23 AM

    Garcia NOW is a better option than Tebow.

  21. the3rain3maker says: Apr 12, 2013 2:29 AM

    Agree 100%, Mr Idzik is a little slow for my tastes.

    Hurry up and trade Revis for that 2013 first round pick before that opportunity dries up.

    *Watches Hard Knocks 2010 on YouTube reminiscing the gold old days…..

  22. captainwisdom8888 says: Apr 12, 2013 2:35 AM

    I wholeheartedly agree. Its better for both parties. The Jets dont want Tebow as their franchise guy, they didnt even give him a chance to be honest. So skip the media circus, let him go, and allow him the opportunity to contribute to another team.

    ***As much as i hated all the media hype Tebow got during that successful run with the Broncos, i desperately would like to see him have another go at a starting job for another team.

    Bills? Browns? Jaguars?

  23. kenstabler says: Apr 12, 2013 2:36 AM

    I want Tom Brady’s advice, maybe Joe Montana. Ken Stabler for gods sake.

    Tebow is the best QB the Jets have.

  24. siggtacular says: Apr 12, 2013 2:41 AM

    yeah Jeff Garcia and everyone else…

  25. rudy5618 says: Apr 12, 2013 2:43 AM

    Jeff,
    You know what is a distraction? Sanchez buttfumbling all over the field each game. Sanchez is getting paid $8.5 million next season despite being the worst QB in the league last year. His contract is the biggest distraction for the team.

  26. thegreatgabbert says: Apr 12, 2013 2:44 AM

    Says the guy who was 30 years old before he made his first NFL start. Then went 2-8 his rookie season.

  27. thegreatgabbert says: Apr 12, 2013 2:47 AM

    There is a cautionary tale about throwing stones while living in glass houses. Garcia is throwing them from a career built of carboard boxes and cellophane. In an alley.

  28. jayquintana says: Apr 12, 2013 2:48 AM

    The reason why the Jets won’t do this: it makes too much sense.

  29. canjura says: Apr 12, 2013 2:52 AM

    Tebow was by far the best QB on the Jets last season, and that’s saying a lot because I’ve seen Tebow throw a football…

  30. badintent says: Apr 12, 2013 2:55 AM

    Jeff is right. He was right about T.O. too. LIke 100 % right. And his wife is a fox

  31. mungman69 says: Apr 12, 2013 2:56 AM

    Exactly.

  32. truths4all says: Apr 12, 2013 3:05 AM

    Looks like Garcia is worried his student will not be able to handle any competition from Tebow so he is trying to get him out of the mix. With Tebow around, Sanchez has just gotten worse and lost his confidence.

  33. chawk12thman says: Apr 12, 2013 3:18 AM

    It may seem to be in the best interest of all to cut the ties……..then again…….how is it good for Tim? No one is showing interest and we all doubt that he gets a shot somewhere else. Jets should tell him he is now their TE/FB if he restructures his contract. If not, cut him.

  34. alxgmz says: Apr 12, 2013 3:23 AM

    Ouch! Truth hurts.

  35. watchdawg1103 says: Apr 12, 2013 3:55 AM

    Tebow needs to realize his best shot of staying in the NFL is to switch positions. He could probably be one hell of a FB or better yet TE. It’s little hope left if he can’t beat out Sanchez.

    Only other option is to go to the CFL and work on his fundamentals for another year or two to show he can play QB.

  36. buddybowl69 says: Apr 12, 2013 4:04 AM

    Not a Tebow lover or hater, but I am curious to see Tobews potential, whether as a Tightend, Fullback, or yes, even a Quarterback. Let him go so we all can see what he can become, or is he a bust in the Pros?

  37. ttothaj says: Apr 12, 2013 4:05 AM

    Jets might use Garcia.

  38. rg3isvictory says: Apr 12, 2013 4:33 AM

    So it’s Tebow’s fault that Sanchez throw all those int’s last season??? Sanchez below average play, coach and GM decision to take a shot and trade for Tebow, then being too scared to give him a shot. I think the coaches and GM are lucky to have their jobs still.

  39. censoredagain says: Apr 12, 2013 5:09 AM

    The ONLY reason they signed him was for the media hype surrounding him, because thats the kind of oprganization they strive to be. The Jests know they’ll always play second fiddle to the Giants, so it’s all they can do.

  40. jvseahawk says: Apr 12, 2013 5:37 AM

    Garcia: It’s not fair to Tebow he stay on an NFL roster and possibly win the job from the guy I’m being paid to tutor. Better for him if he’s chucked on his rear end. Of course, I’m completely unbiased.

    Of course I am…

  41. wryly1 says: Apr 12, 2013 5:45 AM

    The Jets biggest circus side-show distraction is their Head Coach.

  42. brasho says: Apr 12, 2013 6:02 AM

    I am by no means a Tebow fan, but it sure sounds an awful lot that Garcia is afraid his guy (Sanchez) isn’t going to be able to win a competition against Tebow and doesn’t want the challenge.

    If he truly believed in Sanchez he would welcome all comers to compete for the job.

  43. rasalghoul says: Apr 12, 2013 6:09 AM

    Can this has been/never was please stick to mentoring the scrub QB’s he is working with and leave the other scrubs alone?

  44. kwgator says: Apr 12, 2013 6:13 AM

    Jeff Garcia & Mark Sanchez = The blind leading the blind

  45. obnoxiousDCfan says: Apr 12, 2013 6:28 AM

    …said the guy working with Mark Sanchez.

  46. jimbroney says: Apr 12, 2013 6:32 AM

    Jeff Garcia? Was Elvis grbac, kordell Stewart or Scott Mitchell unavailable for comment?

  47. punkyqb says: Apr 12, 2013 6:35 AM

    What else would you expect him to say since he’s “working with Sanchez”. Why does everyone have to have something to bad to say about Tebow. These people should just mind their own business and let things fall where they may.The guy hasn’t said anything bad about anybody.It’s time to lay off the harassment.I’m not a Tebow fan but enough is enough already.

  48. billsfan1 says: Apr 12, 2013 6:45 AM

    its all true. Not as a knock on Tebow or any of the Jets qb’s (havent they all been knocked on enough), but if Tebow is not a part of the plans (whether as a qb or some contributor on offense), why keep him around. Its not beneficial to anybody. They dont look like idiots last season for not using him, or for trading for him.. they look like idiots for trading for him then NOT using him.
    of course we traded for T JAck and didnt dress him for one game
    ehh this is all depressing, it just goes to show this is a qn driven league

  49. jjb0811 says: Apr 12, 2013 6:49 AM

    He’s right. But the Jets seem to embrace circus mentality for headlines. Tebow didn’t do a thing last season and should have been released in January.

  50. mj1818 says: Apr 12, 2013 6:54 AM

    Good job Jeff Garcia

  51. lrjets says: Apr 12, 2013 7:04 AM

    It’s like Noah building the ark after the rain started.
    Should have been done sooner.
    The collateral damage between Sanchez and Tebow is called “2013”!

  52. borisbulldog says: Apr 12, 2013 7:13 AM

    OMG Jeff, that is exactly what Browns fans thought of you after the $20MM crap my pants season you had in ’05!

  53. jaydm84 says: Apr 12, 2013 7:18 AM

    Coming from a loser who is working with a loser.

  54. willjasper says: Apr 12, 2013 7:18 AM

    “Garcia said the Jets moving on from Tebow would be beneficial for everyone involved.”

    Including Jeff Garcia.

  55. liquidmuse says: Apr 12, 2013 7:23 AM

    Wow, conflict of interest much? Funny, let’s look @ the #’s, shall we…?

    David Garrard 85.8
    Greg McElroy 79.2
    Tim Tebow 75.3
    Mark Sanchez 71.7

    In a fair competition, it appears Jeff’s boy Sanchez is the odd man out. Funny how no one gave Garcia a chance for the longest time, & now he’s determining that Tim Tebow isn’t worth of competing with his buddy…

  56. wolfiereasonedlife says: Apr 12, 2013 7:25 AM

    How will they replace the 39 yards Tebow gave them last year passing? Who will give the daily press conferences? You just don’t appreciate how much of a team player he is. He is all about the team, just ask him. He will tell you about the team when he says how much harder than the team he is working. Imagine how humble a man has to be to admit in public to that fact. He is working as hard as he possibly can, he is trying his absolute best, we can expect no more than what we see from him, thus there is no more upside from Tim Tebow.
    Thank you, Goodnight

  57. rgb2425 says: Apr 12, 2013 7:29 AM

    “But from an outsider looking in, having Tebow there doesn’t bring anything positive. It just brings distraction.”

    Exactly, Jeff. From an outsider looking in. We all have that perspective and that is the problem.

    When you look at him, yea Tebow may not be a very good QB and realistically doesn’t have a shot to start QB in this league, but one thing the coaches and many of the Jets players did say about Tebow, is the guy was an outspoken leader, starter or not. That kind of locker room presence is contagious. Granted, the media circus got to the Jets last season and it wore on the team, but Tebow’s leadership in the weight room, mini camp, training camp, practice field, and on Sundays is what kept him on the squad. It is probably what is keeping him on the squad now.

  58. phinfan86 says: Apr 12, 2013 7:37 AM

    hes just trying to get some spots open for Jamarcus Russel. I see your tactics Garcia…..

  59. heyguru1969 says: Apr 12, 2013 7:45 AM

    You just can’t beat roster advice from a Hall of Famer. Oh wait. Never mind Jets, do watcha wanna do watcha gonna do watcha needa do.

  60. themagicman1223 says: Apr 12, 2013 7:46 AM

    Am I the only one who read that in a Jeff Garcia voice? Anyway he’s right.

  61. canetic says: Apr 12, 2013 7:51 AM

    Sounds like he’s a little scared of Tebow competing with his protege Mark Sanchez.

  62. germanstingray says: Apr 12, 2013 7:52 AM

    There’s definitely a problem with the Jests if Mark Sanchez’s psyche is so weak that he cannot cope with Tebow being on the same team. If Tebow is such a weak QB and Sanchez is so talented, one would logically think that the Sanchise would benefit from a substandard foil.

  63. hehateme2 says: Apr 12, 2013 7:53 AM

    But the jests thrive on seeking attention…

  64. rudy5618 says: Apr 12, 2013 8:01 AM

    FACT: The Jets locker room was a huge circus way before TT showed up.

  65. truthfactory says: Apr 12, 2013 8:02 AM

    What was Sanchez’s excuse the first 3 years when Tebow wasnt there? And dont tell me “he took his team to 2 AFC championship games”. The truth is, his teams took him to 2 AFC championship games.

    Now that their D is average, he cant win a big game for them- with or without tebow

  66. randyschwimmer7 says: Apr 12, 2013 8:08 AM

    All I have to say is, THANK YOU JOHN ELWAY for getting rid of the circus before it invaded Denver any longer. WHEW

  67. connorchew says: Apr 12, 2013 8:14 AM

    jeff garcia is the man. And this is the general consensus amongst….everyone.

  68. fwippel says: Apr 12, 2013 8:24 AM

    Was Tim Tebow the problem with the Jets last year? Was it Tim Tebow behind center all year doing the Spergon Wynn/Babe Laufenberg impersonation?

    Sorry, Jeff, but the Jets are a crummy team, and Tim Tebow didn’t cause that. Heck, they’d have probably been better with him behind center rather than Sanchez.

  69. melikefootball says: Apr 12, 2013 8:26 AM

    I would say 99 % of football fans could have said the same.

  70. kwickett85 says: Apr 12, 2013 8:28 AM

    Get rid of Tebow and sign 43 year old Garcia. Sanchez can watch on the sideline while Garcia and his 2:1 TD:INT ratio show Sanchez how it’s done.

  71. 69finfan says: Apr 12, 2013 8:34 AM

    The worlds advice to Tim Tebow: Get away from that clown of an organization know as the Jests immediately!

  72. Iknoweverything says: Apr 12, 2013 8:44 AM

    I dont particularly like Tebow but the Jets are just classless for the way they are effing him over. What did Tebow do to them to be treated so badly? The organization as a whole including the coaching staff just looks like childish aholes

  73. sylar1888 says: Apr 12, 2013 8:49 AM

    Real talk!! Now will the Jets listen to good advice?

  74. tombradyswig says: Apr 12, 2013 8:54 AM

    My advice to Jets: GET RID OF Marty Mornhinweg

  75. wkdblc52 says: Apr 12, 2013 8:58 AM

    I will be so glad when Skip Bayless’ boyfriend takes a hike and moves on up to Winnipeg, this sideshow just can’t go on another year, Garcia is absolutely spot on with this comment !

  76. bryantrulen says: Apr 12, 2013 8:59 AM

    bringing Tebow to NY turned out to be the worst thing in terms for Sanchez and Tim’s career. 2 QB’s who will be forever linked due to a bad personel decision that should have got a HC fired and did get the GM canned.

  77. thejohnsmith1122 says: Apr 12, 2013 9:01 AM

    Unfortunately for Sanchez, it doesn’t matter how much you know the West Coast, if you can’t read defenses or make the neccessary throws then your no better than Tebow.

    Last point is it also doesn’t matter if Sanchez has competition or not, if they’re all at the same LOW playing level then the Jets will never win. I’m not sure why some people thinks Sanchez will all of a sudden become a great QB. He’s with the same team that drafted him and had more consistency on the coaching side than many other struggling QBs.

  78. gator2006 says: Apr 12, 2013 9:04 AM

    Key phrase “Garcia has been working with Sanchez this offseason.”

    He has a horse in this race.

  79. norseyapper says: Apr 12, 2013 9:13 AM

    Not that the Jets wouldn’t be better off moving on from the Tebow experiment but Garcia is so obviously biased that his opinion is worthless.
    What he is saying is get rid of any distraction and/or competition from my guy Sanchez so that he has every opportunity to look better, which would make Garcia’s new career as a QB polisher look viable.

  80. granadafan says: Apr 12, 2013 9:15 AM

    I notice that Garcia says that IF Tebow could contribute on offense, he didnt say it would be as QB. He’s right about that. Tebow is not a QB. Change positions and just end this farce.

  81. marty2020 says: Apr 12, 2013 9:16 AM

    gloryfromheaven says: Apr 12, 2013 1:22 AM

    Weird how right after Tebow led the Broncos all the way to the divisional round in the playoffs he’s most likely never going to play in this league again…
    =======================

    If you look at the circumstances of some of those victories, I don’t think you can say Tim Tebow led the Broncos to victory. It was mostly the defense, the running game, and some really crazy decisions by the opponents. Tim Tebow just happened to be playing QB at the time, mostly very poorly.

  82. rajbais says: Apr 12, 2013 9:21 AM

    Jeff is a smart guy!!!

    Do it!!!

  83. edavidberg says: Apr 12, 2013 9:38 AM

    If you are going to have Tebow on your roster you need to use him. The Jets doomed themselves to failure last year by giving him a few plays here, a couple plays there. They also should have had him on the field with Sanchez at the same time, their running backs last year were abysmal.

    While I have no confidence in Tebow ever being a QB on a contending team he probably deserved a shot last year and the Jets never gave him one. And the whole thing ruined Sanchez in the process.

  84. rickywatts80 says: Apr 12, 2013 9:53 AM

    I love all the commentary from meatball Tebow lovers. NFL talent evaluators don’t think he can play.

    None of them.

  85. lovefootball4life says: Apr 12, 2013 10:02 AM

    “When you’re a quarterback, you don’t need artificial competition,”

    I don’t understand what that even means. If he’s saying that having Tebow in off season workouts, when they know he’ll be traded, puts unnecessary pressure on Sanchez, well tell that Nancy-boy to suck it up. If he gets flustered by the 4th string QB during voluntary workouts who is destined to be gone before the season starts then that’s a bigger problem with Sanchez. I hope both the other two QBs beat him soundly out of his job.

    —————————–
    That’s because everyone remembers the blowout that followed. That was a greater embarrassment than his Jets career.

  87. realdealsteel says: Apr 12, 2013 10:22 AM

    I don’t understand. Did Tebow NOT have 314 yards against the Steelers? Did he NOT make some extremely difficult passes in that game? Why do people act like he’s the worst quarterback in the NFL. It’s stupid. He does best when he just is in shotgun, and a regular offense with receivers running actual routes.

    Yes, his delivery sucks. But he has very good pocket awareness and doesn’t throw interceptions very often. He’s better than freakin Mark Sanchez.. C’mon.
    —————————————————-

    Steelers had no Palomalu, no Ryan Clark, No Woodley. And you think because of Tebum throwing for 314 against that type of defense makes him legit???? Your one of those Tebites that hangs on his jockstrap wherever he goes. Let me explain this to you in simple english:

    TEBOW CAN’T PLAY! WHAT HE DID THAT ONE SEASON WAS AN ABERRATION BASED ON THE BRONCOS DEFENSE KEEPING HIM IN GAMES TO GET HIS ONE TD A GAME!

    Tebow will be out of the league shortly.

  88. fwippel says: Apr 12, 2013 10:44 AM

    The Jets are the circus here, not Tebow. The problem is their coach and their organization.

    Their QB problems? You can’t blame that on Tebow, who barely played last year, and wasn’t given a chance to prove what he could do behind center. Mark Sanchez is the problem, and will continue to be unless replaced.

  89. ravenator says: Apr 12, 2013 10:48 AM

    Trade him to the steelers – that way they may stand a chance in the playoffs. I know, I know, the Steelers in the playoffs – quite humorous

  90. seaeagle707 says: Apr 12, 2013 10:57 AM

    Tebow “could” prove himself to be the best QB since Montana, but that’ll never happen in the Jersey Swamps. Rex The Human Jumbotron, won’t play him, plain and simple. Mark may learn the West Coast offense during an offseason, but you don’t get proficient at it in a couple of months. Seemingly (and amazingly), it would seem that Rex, is going to keep his wagon hitched to Sanchez’s star. Mistake? Time will tell that tale.

    and Garcia’s input is important because????

  92. szwhtsup123 says: Apr 12, 2013 11:02 AM

    So Jeff Garcia is getting paid to help Mark Sanchez and wants to see Tebow gone? Duh! There’s a reach. We all know Garcia has one of the great football minds ?!? in the league and he would know what’s best for Tim Tebow. Yep uh huh…..

  93. packerfan12 says: Apr 12, 2013 11:11 AM

    Look at how crazy the Tim Tebow circus is….THIS IS WHY NO TEAM WANTS HIM! (Also because he can’t play quarterback). People overrate his play because they like him as a person, and what he stands for, but the fact is if you have to have an offense specifically tailored in one formation it’s not going to work very long. If you can’t hit open receivers, it’s not going to work, if you take all the media attention away from the other players, they’re going to hate you.

    Nobody wants to put up with the circus that Tim Tebow brings with him, for the lack of production he has. I like Tim Tebow, just not as a quarterback.

    Statistically speaking Sanchez got better every year in every passing stat. Until Tebow got there and wasn’t allowed to compete. That had nothing to do with it. It was all Sporanos fault. Trust me.
    Release the zealot and let him go lead the Jaguars to the playoffs. Tebow is a winner who loves a fictional character from his favorite book. why all the hate? Oh that’s right The J-E-T-S represent the forces of all darkness and evil, that explains it.

    TEBOW JUST WASN’T CRISP….

    Weird how right after Tebow led the Broncos all the way to the divisional round in the playoffs he’s most likely never going to play in this league again…

    —————————–
    That’s because everyone remembers the blowout that followed. That was a greater embarrassment than his Jets career.
    ====================

    Actually, the Broncos got blown out 4 times with Tebow at QB, including horrific losses to the BILLS and LIONS. They were held under 20 points in SEVEN of his starts. He was terrible. He is terrible.

    If you gave every GM in the league the choice between having Tim Tebow or Brady Quinn as their starter next year, all 32 would pick Quinn. At some point, you’ve got to realize that there is a good reason for that.

  97. chargerdillon says: Apr 12, 2013 11:44 AM

    Tim Tebow will one day be a starting quarterback on an unsuspecting team that will contend for the playoffs.

    He’s done it once before, he will do it again. People fail to realize the intangibles of a real leader.

    The best example i can give is from White men can’t jump. Most owners would rather look pretty and lose, than win ugly.

    Tebow can win ugly, he’ll never be pretty, but he can win

  98. majormeatcurtains says: Apr 12, 2013 11:50 AM

    I KNEW I’d be able to tell the exact moment when the check from Sanchez to Garcia cleared the bank.

    ———–

    He can also get blown out in half his starts and lead his team to less than 20 points in seven of them.

    He can also stand on the sidelines and watch his defense make huge plays that lead to him “leading his team to victory” despite personally accomplishing nothing while on the field.

  100. awdlmd says: Apr 12, 2013 12:03 PM

    The Jets should keep on the roster, not give him a single rep, then cut him in the final cuts. He deserves it for being such an egocentric tool.

  101. dallascowboysdishingthereal says: Apr 12, 2013 12:18 PM

    As long as you have Sanchez as your best option at QB, you can’t rule out any other QBs as a possibility. Just sayin’.

  102. myosin10 says: Apr 12, 2013 12:24 PM

    Really there is Jeff Garcia haters? Dude was a great QB! I watched him in SF win multiple games on his own then he did it in Philly too! He never got a chance to be the man after he left SF. He is a winner just like Tebow. Tebow can win u games if someone gives him a chance.

    I just want to know what makes Jeff Garcia think he can comment on any QB.

    What did you ever do Jeff? Average you were.

    Retire, check into the old folks home in the bay.”
    ================================================

    Haha, this is too easy. Garcia played 10 years in the NFL, was a 4 time Pro Bowl player, and is a coach’s son. Plus he married (and still is) a Playboy model. I’d say Garcia has just a wee bit more credentials to comment on any QB more than you do and any other fan who questions him or any other former player.

    I always laugh at ignorant posters who bash former players for saying something negative about a fan’s favorite player. Even if the former player was just average, they still have the credentials to comment as they actually played the game at the highest level. Remember, the best coaches are not the best players.

    Did Tebow NOT have 314 yards against the Steelers?

    Yes he did. But he also followed that performance up with a 9/26/136 and a QB rating of 52.7 against the Patriots. I wouldn’t say he’s the worst QB in the league, but he’s far from a starter.

  105. mrpeary3189 says: Apr 12, 2013 12:30 PM

    Hey Tebow fanboys,

    If Tebow is so great, why did he get passed up for a 3rd stringer when Rex benched Sanchez?

  106. gatorprof says: Apr 12, 2013 12:33 PM

    Now Garcia is making more excuses for the mental softness of Sanchez?

    Tebow had nothing to do with how awful the Jets, and Sanchez, were last season.

  107. gloryfromheaven says: Apr 12, 2013 12:33 PM

    Its funny how people are saying that Tebow got blown out in some of his starts and there basically putting full blame on him for that. While Orton was playing, The Packers scored 49 points and the year before the Raiders scored 59 points but I guess we’ll blame Orton for that to since he’s the QB…. The Broncos defense was extremely overly hyped and during Tebows playoff run, the Broncos allowed Marion Barber, Toby Gerhart, Isaac Redman, Dexter McCluster to 100 yard games. Tom Brady threw 5 TD’s in the first half vs there defense… I bet the guys in lockeroom were furious at Tebow for allowing 45 points

  108. azarkhan says: Apr 12, 2013 12:58 PM

    ramitbaby says: People are idiots. Tim Tebow got the Broncos just as far as Peyton Manning did.

    Actually he got them farther than Manning did. At least Tebow won a play-off game, and he was paid a lot less money.

  109. malvaren18 says: Apr 12, 2013 1:04 PM

    It’s probably time for Tebow to move on to something else, not a single NFL team wants him.

  110. mdev1987 says: Apr 12, 2013 2:03 PM

    Jeff Garcia is freakin genius!!!

  111. mtgblue1979 says: Apr 12, 2013 4:58 PM

    Tebow didn’t lead ANYONE to playoffs or win any playoff games. The DEFENSE lead the broncos to the playoffs and THOMAS won the game by taking a simple 10 yard slant that any quarterback can throw and giving a Herculean effort after the catch. Tebow ISN’T the worst QB in the NFL but he is the SECOND worst.

  112. vgferenzi says: Apr 13, 2013 2:05 AM

    If there’s someone who knows about QB’s no one wants…it’s Jeff Garcia.

  113. wolfmanpatriot says: Apr 13, 2013 6:19 AM

    Steelers had no Palomalu, no Ryan Clark, No Woodley. And you think because of Tebum throwing for 314 against that type of defense makes him legit????
    ===========
    Even a steeler fan knows that Flipaburger is no QB and it took a great D to carry him. But still. They did make it to the playoffs and Tebow shut them up.

  114. rukkus1 says: Apr 15, 2013 7:22 AM

    It is fitting for a mediocre franchise to pay a mediocre retired qb to tutor a mediocre qb who is well into his pro career. Then in a mediocre story, he is giving mediocre advice

  115. footballfan12289 says: Apr 15, 2013 9:42 AM

    Someone’s a little jealous their not on a team….

  116. greenmtnboy31 says: Apr 17, 2013 9:49 AM

    Newsflash for Jeff Garcia – Tebow is a better option for the Jets than Sanchez and Sanchez himself has proven that.

  117. j4man1 says: Apr 19, 2013 9:08 AM

    I believe that Tim deserves a chance somewhere else, but who does Garcia think he is giving advice? No wonder their QB’s suck.
