Tebow has an offer from the Omaha Beef

Tim Tebow’s always been more of a loaves and fishes guy, but he has a chance to move some Beef if he wants to.

In your regularly scheduled indoor-team publicity drive, the Omaha Beef have offered Tebow a chance to come play for $75 a game.

Beef assistant general manager Andrew Mather told the Associated Press that he left agent Jimmy Sexton a message, but didn’t expect to hear back.

Their quarterback, James McNear, has thrown 21 touchdowns and two interceptions in six games, and didn’t sound threatened.

“I think Tim can learn a lot from me,” McNear said.

Well done, James. Well done.

    Best time to kick someone is while they’re down.

    Seriously, what has this guy done to deserve crap like this. He took the Broncos as far as the great Peyton Manning did.

  3. jcmeyer10 says: Apr 30, 2013 3:29 PM

    I mean, even the biggest Tebow hater has to have some sympathy for him this week.

  4. rangenius says: Apr 30, 2013 3:29 PM

    Making fun of Jason Collins is off limits, but ridiculing a christian like Tebow is fair game.

  5. t8ertot says: Apr 30, 2013 3:29 PM

    Lol 75 bucks a game? That’s an insult

  8. gdive says: Apr 30, 2013 3:34 PM

    I hope Tebow’s agent plans to leverage the Beef’s offer against the Seattle Salmon and LA Smog. I’m sure they’ll top the $75/game.

    The Omaha Beef?

    I want a t-shirt. In fact, I must have a t-shirt.

    _________________________________

    Yup, people are making fun of Tebow because he’s Christian, and not because he’s a wildly inconsistent quarterback who was somehow elevated to rockstar status.

    Just ask Kurt Warner and Reggie White, man, remember how fans and the media hated those guys because they were devoted Christians? Oh, wait…

  11. dblockatl says: Apr 30, 2013 3:36 PM

    Mark Sanchez is a Poor Man’s James McNear

  12. colonelcamp says: Apr 30, 2013 3:36 PM

    I wonder what Tebow thinks of Jason Collins.

    What? Nobody is making fun of Tebow for who he is or what he believes. The ridicule is based on the fact that he is a bad quarterback. Why do you want to make fun of Jason Collins? There is no logic to this comment.

  14. eddiek77 says: Apr 30, 2013 3:38 PM

    You will never convince me that this kid wasn’t blackballed in some corners of the NFL, all because he dared to demonstrate his religious beliefs. And you will never convince me that he isn’t twice the QB–and athlete—that Mark Sanchez is.
    Shame. Just like it shouldn’t matter what sexual preference an athlete has, it shouldn’t matter if a player chooses to follow a religious calling.

    Actually, no. I am the biggest Tebow hater and I have no sympathy for him now, or ever.

    Plus James McNear is my new favorite Omaha Beef player ever!

  16. Stiller43 says: Apr 30, 2013 3:40 PM

    Rangenious,

    Many view sexual orientation to be like skin color…you dont choose it, and discriminating against it SHOULD be off limits.

    People arent ridiculing tebow because he’s a christian…its because he’s not that good, and yet he’s shoved down everyones throats constantly.

  17. bucrightoff says: Apr 30, 2013 3:41 PM

    Hey Tebow fans…we don’t dislike him because he’s Christian…we dislike him because he’s at best the 50th best QB in the NFL, yet gets more run than any QB in the league by far. If he was Atheist, Muslim, Buddist, Rastafarian, we’d be saying the same. He just isn’t any good.

  18. cuda1234 says: Apr 30, 2013 3:42 PM

    Since we’ve all been told over and over and over again that Timmy’s not about the money and that he really wants to play qb, this actually makes sense.

  19. listerineman says: Apr 30, 2013 3:43 PM

    This GM is crap. He uses the name tebow to get is crappy team one headline. I guess this GM is on the way to hell.

  20. mobuccsfan says: Apr 30, 2013 3:44 PM

    Omaha Beef. Ha ha. Didn’t even know this was real. Man, what am I missing? Is this like a B-rated arena team? Seriously, what am I missing? lol. Think I might become a fan! Beef isn’t just what’s for dinner in Omaha these days–it is also on the football field for your viewing pleasure…and I will just show myself out.

  21. blacknole08 says: Apr 30, 2013 3:44 PM

    If Tebow has any dignity left, he would not take this offer.

    No, Denver DEFENSE took the Broncos as far as the great Peyton Manning did. TEBOW got spanked by a defense made of BUFFALO’S BACKUPS!

  23. stevent92 says: Apr 30, 2013 3:46 PM

    Tebow was “elevated to rockstar status” for winning 2 Championships at Florida (one as the starter), winning the Heisman Trophy, being a first-round draft pick, and going 8-5 including a playoff win over the defending AFC Champs in his first ever playoff game.

    Bad QB?

  24. nineroutsider says: Apr 30, 2013 3:46 PM

    What’s with the need to kick the guy when he’s down? And who is James McNear and why do we care what he thinks about Tim Tebow? “Well done” as if Tebow needed further roasting from some former IBP worker turned very amateur QB in some fake league. I respect amateur football, but I’m not sure how to classify the CIPFL…don’t think it deserves to be called amateur.

    The story itself doesn’t bother me except for your need to twist the knife in Tebow with the quote from the non-threatened QB and the “well-done” comment. Not very classy. Oh, and this is not coming from a Tebow Lover, TebowHead, etc.

    I guess I just don’t see the need to tear the guy down further. Maybe your life really sucks though and it makes you feel good. Maybe I’m overreacting, but I hate this type of crap. Find a better way to be witty.

  25. rayguyreturns says: Apr 30, 2013 3:47 PM

    I have never rooted for FreeBow, but I do respect him. If my team signed him I would look at it as a positive, not a negative. Of course with my team anything would be a positive right now.

  26. IBleedBlueBitchez says: Apr 30, 2013 3:47 PM

    Man y’all are stupid, if you don’t think for a moment that ridiculing some quarterback who came out as gay would be a death sentence, (NO MATTER WHY YOU WERE RIDICULING HIM, EVEN IF HE COULDN’T throw the ball 10 yards(like the guy who wrote this story) then you really are the idiots I believe you to be.

  27. footballmaven says: Apr 30, 2013 3:48 PM

    What’s the big deal?..I get offers from Omaha Beef almost every week…oh wait, that’s Omaha steaks….

  28. ketchupaholic says: Apr 30, 2013 3:51 PM

    Tebow doesn’t deserve these attacks. The only reason the media loves to pile on his devotion to his religion. I can tell you if Tebow was a Muslim, the attacks wouldn’t be so fierce. It would be called bullying and intolerance. Give Tebow credit, he donates a lot of time and money to charity, and the suffering. Instead, they prop up murderers like Ray Lewis as a role model? Really? How many of you would rather you daughter bring home Ray Lewis over Tim Tebow?

  29. doclolly says: Apr 30, 2013 3:54 PM

    You know i honestly hope some team with a awful defense gives Tebow a shot at playing and he leads a team to a 1-15 record. So people can finally stop talking all this junk about how he’s a winner, There is a reason why he can’t get a job and there is a reason atleast 90% of people who are in the game or cover it say he cant make it as nfl QB.

    Tebow was only amazing in college, he was never amazing in the NFL. He always trotted out and played like garbage for 3 quarters but the broncos defense played amazing to keep things close. Then in the 4th quarter a lucky break here and there and suddenly people feel like he can do it.

  30. omegalh says: Apr 30, 2013 3:59 PM

    Tell me again why the NFL doesn’t have minor leagues for guys like Tebow?

    Is there any football fan who wouldn’t watch this league? I’d love to see TO, Freddie Mitchell, Tebow, and Ahmad Green battling to make the bigs again.

  31. fonetiklee says: Apr 30, 2013 3:59 PM

    Their name is… the Omaha Beef?

    Seriously?

    “Making fun of Jason Collins is off limits, but ridiculing a christian like Tebow is fair game.”

    There’s actually a pretty good chance Collins is a Christian, too. In fact a large majority of professional athletes are Christian. They just focus on being athletes, first. Maybe that’s because of how hard it is for Christians here.

    Funny you’d bring up Collins, since he lived in fear of people finding out he was gay for most of his life. Weird, since gays have it so easy in American. He must not have known that.

    _______________________________

    Have you actually, you know, watch the guy play? To call his accuracy mediocre is an insult to mediocre quarterbacks, to say nothing of his reads and decisionmaking skills.

    College isn’t the NFL. That should go without saying, but let’s repeat it. College isn’t the NFL. If it was Ryan Leaf would be finishing his NFL career somewhere instead of cooling his heels in prison.

    And the Denver Defense combined with completely catching everyone off guard with an unusual offense no one had film on played out of necessity sent the Broncos 8-5 over that stretch.

    In this league winning is king. It isn’t just a game of “what have you done for me lately” but “what are you going to do for me next?” Of all the 32 teams in the NFL, many with oustanding professional talent evaluators, he would be picked up somewhere if anyone thought his talent level matched the praise some like to heap upon him.

  34. dblockatl says: Apr 30, 2013 4:05 PM

    Does Andrew Mather have a gmail account?

    For $75 bucks a game, I’ll suit up for the Beef any day of the week! You get what you pay for!

    Maybe. Of course, that was a pretty good pass he through in OT during the Pittsburgh game.

  36. nzayir says: Apr 30, 2013 4:07 PM

    Peyton Manning is one of the worst playoff quarterbacks ever. He will break the record of having the most losses in the post-season this year. He has twice as much one and done’s as any other quarterback. The one year his team won the Super Bowl he had very little to do with it. He only three touchdown passes while tossing an awful seven interceptions.

    The point is for the Tebow lovers doing as good as the older Manning in the playoffs is nothing to celebrate.

  37. phreakin says: Apr 30, 2013 4:08 PM

    No Tebow fans, the only reason people pile on him is because of you. Because you Tebow “fans” think he should be anointed some great football player because Jesus is on his side. He’s a terrible NFL player and always will be. And here’s a couple of facts you seem to forget about with his Broncos career. The defense and kicker won them games, Tebow just didn’t throw enough to lose them.

    Tebow fans are no different with his faith than Warren Moon is playing the race card. He’s panned universally because he’s a bad NFL quarterback. Not because he’s a bad person or Christian. Now get over yourselves.

  38. phreakin says: Apr 30, 2013 4:10 PM

    And another note Tebow fans. Do you HONESTLY think that if he was ANY good and could win games he wouldn’t be on an NFL team? We’re talking the same league that lets drunks and wife beaters play every Sunday as long as they can help a team win. Yet there’s some conspiracy against Tebow because of his faith? WOW

  39. drew1103 says: Apr 30, 2013 4:14 PM

    Understand the criticism, but it was not in any way an attempt to kick Tebow while he was down. We have a lot of respect for Tim. QB was just trying to have some fun with it.

    No again! Denver’s defense was just as good for Manning as it was for Tebow. Tebow took over a team that was 1-4 if I remember correctly and took them to the playoffs. N ot only that, won a game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    I’m not trying to sell anyone on Tebow being a good QB. But the fact is the initial statement here is correct in that he took the team as far as Manning did on a team that wasn’t as good.

  41. sl781 says: Apr 30, 2013 4:15 PM

    Scraping the bottom of the barrel for Tebow posts today. Enough already, it’s getting ridiculous. Kicking the guy when he’s down, it’s unbecoming.

  42. auroraborealisfan says: Apr 30, 2013 4:17 PM

    Excuse me, but didn’t Denver have the same defense in the games prior to Tebow playing and didn’t they have a crappy record? Tebow DID make a difference – a positive difference in Denver.

    Yup. Just like the media piles on Kurt Warner, Reggie White, Deion Sanders, Donald Driver, Ladainian Tomlinson, Anquan Boldin, Dallas Clark, Michael Oher, Jeff Saturday, Aaron Kampman, Al Harris, Troy Polamalu, Adam Vinatieri, and Mike McCarthy.

    Clearly none of those devout men of Christ has ever received positive media attention, like Tebow all they’ve received is attacks. Remember how everyone said Kurt Warner was terrible? Remember how fans and the media couldn’t wait to trash Donald Driver when it became clear he was aging and his skills were fading? Oh, you don’t remember that?

    That’s because it didn’t happen.

  44. apinzon12 says: Apr 30, 2013 4:20 PM

    You have to be literally stupid to give the credit just to the defense cause IM pretty sure that same defense sucked whenever Kyle Orton was the qb. tebow rejuvenated that team with his leadership and determination. He didn’t quit whenever they were down he kept going

  45. unclemoobaa1911 says: Apr 30, 2013 4:34 PM

    Where’s the beef?

  46. jrs1972 says: Apr 30, 2013 4:39 PM

    21 touchdowns and two interceptions?

    Screw tebow…Why arent the jets at least looking into replacing sanchez with this guy? MARK SANCHEZ is your QB! I’d be dragging in everything with an arm for a workout if I was ryan.

    PFT (and some commenters) are getting out of hand with all these hot button issues. I’ve found myself actually getting frusterated reading some of these stories/posts.

    It’s every day now that I see something about race, religion, or sexual orientation here. I would rather read about the most OBSCURE football news than anything to do with those aformentioned topics. Save those conversations for the classroom, bar, etc.

    I come here for FOOTBALL. Shut up already.

  49. mobuccsfan says: Apr 30, 2013 5:25 PM

    Sounds like this QB would have some “beef” with Tebow coming aboard.

    Do all of their players, “beef up?”

    Could you imagine the promo nights/days at this place? Wonder if Chunky Soups (Beef Stew) is a sponsor?

    Free stick of beef jerky the first 100 people in the gates? Beef Stew night at the stadium?

    Okay, I will stick to my boring day job–obviously what I was meant to do. I don’t see Tebow doing this. At best, he goes to CFL, learns new position finally and then tries a comeback. Nothing wrong with humility or humble pie for any of us in this life.

  50. jcmeyer10 says: Apr 30, 2013 5:32 PM

  52. modhairken says: Apr 30, 2013 6:46 PM

    Play for $75 a game, huh? Tebow could buy the entire team for less than he made with the Jets last year. But, why would anyone want to go to Omaha voluntarily?

  53. spideysdog says: Apr 30, 2013 7:24 PM
