Tom House declares Tim Tebow ready to play

AP

Former baseball pitcher Tom House has become a quarterback Svengali, claiming last year that half of the NFL’s quarterbacks (including Tom Brady) have been seeking him out for assistance.  Half of the NFL’s quarterbacks, and Tim Tebow.

After working with the man who has been exiled from the league for the last two seasons, House has declared that Tebow has prepared himself to play again.

“What amazes me is this young man, with no job prospects, has prepared just as hard as he would if he were the No. 1 quarterback for an NFL team,” House told Albert Breer of NFL Media on Monday.  “He’s busted his butt.  He spins the ball better than he did and he’s much more accurate than he was.  I think he’s ready.”

House explains that Tebow’s Philadelphia opportunity emerged out of the blue, with the team calling last week and House sending Adam Dedeaux to Florida to finish Tebow’s preparations.

House believes Tebow has done more than enough reps the right way to get rid of past bad habits.

“We helped his throwing,” House told Breer.  “When he was released by the Patriots, because of Tom Brady, he came to us. . . . He had trouble spinning the ball and he wasn’t very accurate.  We didn’t do much conditioning or route trees or run many defenses against him.  We honestly felt we could help him with his throwing, like everyone else, but this time, he got enough reps where the change was made.”

If House is right, the Eagles should be signing Tebow, regardless of whether they can first trade Barkley.  If House is right, other teams should be clamoring to add to their rosters a guy who has shown that he knows how to perform at a high level in the fourth quarter of close games.  If he can elevate his performance for the rest of a given game and during practices, Tebow has a chance to author one of the great redemption stories the NFL has ever seen.

  1. If he is even half decent at throwing now, he is basically a big, white, durable, left handed, proven winner, positive attitude team player good role model version of RG3.

  2. That’s great news. By the way, there was a guy named Tim Tebow that won a playoff game for the Broncos a couple years ago, after taking over a team that couldn’t win a game. Any relationship to this Tim Tebow?

  3. The reality is Tebow throws like an outfielder and the best quarterbacks throw like a 3rd baseman. short compact motion. He has a long motion.

    Wouldn’t bet on this version either.

  4. So House taught him how to throw a slider? Attention all MLB pitchers with a sweet slider: The NFL is looking for QB’s.

    Whatever.

  5. If he ever did this people would be hating on him. I just don’t get the hate against him.

  6. Sorry, but it’s easy to concentrate on mechanics on a practice field. When JJ Watts, Cam Wake, Suh, or any number of great NFL linemen are blowing up the pocket and forcing a quick decision his mechanics will revert.

    You learn fundamentals when you’re 10…not 27.

  7. Chip Kelly’s ego wouldn’t fit in the conference room if Tebow became a successful NFL QB under him after letting an all-purpose league leader in McCoy leave. There’s Chip’s world & everyone else, look up to see where you stand.

  8. To all the haters who will bash him upon reading this; there are people who just give up and move on while accepting failure and then there’s tim tebow. Tim didn’t switch to rb or wr when everyone said he should. Tim has won a playoff game. Tim still praises what he believes in and continues to try to get better as a quarterback and not just a football player. You just can’t not be proud of this guy

  9. I would LOVE to see Tim Tebow prove everyone wrong.

    He strikes me as a sincere, honest and refreshing person.

    GOOD LUCK to you!!!

  10. Broncos haven’t won a Superbowl since Capgate. Truth hurts. #ElwaysRingsAreTainted.

  11. Please come back, Timmy. The sports media has been lost without you. They’ve gone crazy, running around toppling sports owners, getting players banned, pushing countless unrelated social agendas. You are their guide. We need you, Timmy, now more than ever. everr everr everrrr

  12. Florio, you are playing to my 2008 emotions. Being a fan of a team with Tebow starting is magical. You have to feel it to believe it.

  13. gives us all a break.. no one is buying the hype until he actually proves he can throw on an NFL field, and that won’t happen until a team gives him a shot to play in a game, which is an extreme long shot.

    you really are carrying the NFL’s water.

  14. Hmmm…same story different year, as some QB guru claims to have fixed Tebow’s issues. I’m sure it will end the same as always, with Tebow looking for work by the time the regular season starts.

  15. I’m a Dallas fan…..and Chip Kelly is the best thing that has happened to us since we drafted Troy Aikman.

    Maybe better.

    Enjoy being 3-13, ladies.

  16. If this House character is telling the truth (or knows what he’s talking about) then man I’d love to see Tebow on the field and what he can do.

    But reality, common sense, and pure instinct are telling me the complete opposite.

  17. I can’t imagine Tom House is giving any Guarantee’s on Tebow’s performance, is he?

  18. Tim Tebow is GOOD for the NFL. A league of Tebows would have no off-the-field problems, and you could never accuse them of playing with no heart.

  19. Oh someone PLEASE sign this clown so we can keep making fun of him.

    How can you not love a QB whose over/under for total passing yards for a game is somewhere around 50?

  20. No one wants him to make a comeback more than Steeler fans. Something, anything has to legitimize that playoff loss, and the only thing that can do it is a relevant Tebow. Hilarious.

  21. Either sign him or don’t. Why does this guy need so much attention? Tebow fans say all he does is win, he won a playoff game. Yeah well so did TJ Yates.

    Is he blaming tom brady for the reason why he was cut by the patriots?
    ———

    Reading comprehension.

    First, the article said that Brady was among the QBs who came to him.

    Second, he stated that after Tebow was released, because of his AFFILIATION WITH Tom Brady (I know putting two and two together is difficult for people on these comment sections), Tebow came to him.

    Something about him is mystical. I think he’s from Narnia.
    —————————————————–

    That’s hilarious.

  26. haha one workout and 5 stories. the press musta been like YES WOO TEBOW IS BACK ONE MORE RIDE ON THE CREATE A STORY EXPRESS

  27. If tebow wasn’t so outwardly religous no one would be talking about him. Religion is the ultimate team sport. You can tell who’s on team Jesus on all these posts. He’s just like every other great athlete that was successful in college at QB but didn’t translate to the NFL. That’s all he is, faith is a strange thing. Being a hardcore Christian doesn’t make you a good QB or make you a better person. It just doesn’t.

  28. It’s SO SOOO sad to see all of these Tebow apologists completely forgetting the fact that he can’t play. He had Decker and Thomas at WR and he couldn’t find them in the first three plus quarters of the game, if at ALL.
    That DEN defense was pretty stout, and made up for the fact that Tebow just took the snap and either handed it off or ran it himself. That’s not a QB. ONE playoff game he lulled the PIT secondary to sleep the WHOLE game, and in OT, he shot putted a ball to a WIDE open receiver, and the next thing you know, he’s a LEGEND.
    To call him “serviceable” is generous.
    He was a GREAT college QB. He’s on the short list for the best college QB ever. Not all college QBs succeed in the NFL. Tebow is one of them.

  29. If Tebow can make this comeback work, it’s going to make for a great story, perhaps even a movie.

    My favorite part is when Tebow has to overcome the death of Carl Weathers and then goes to Tom House in Siberia to prepare to go up against opposing QB Ivan Drago

  30. During the declaration, Tim was presented with a laurel and hearty handshake.

  31. Tebow’s myth is overplayed by fans. He was 8-6 over two years and 1-1 in the playoffs. He got zero burn in NY was cut by the Pats even with the “genius” Belichick at the helm. I’d like to see the guy play because watching a QB truck-stick a linebacker or safety is pure enjoyment, but he also needs to get his game right. His shoddy passing pretty much made DBs lazy and inattentive so once he managed to uncork one of those shot-put passes, they were out of position. Not going to happen again.

  32. Thanks Mike, for a nice, even-handed post with no gratuitous Tebow bashing. Well, aside from the snide remark at the end of the first paragraph, but I suppose that was fair.

  33. Look, here’s the fact. Tim Tebow is a con artist.

    He conned Denver into picking him in the first round, because he alledgedly worked hard or his shortcomings. He conned the Jets into keeping him because he alledgedly worked hard on his shortcomings. He conned the Patriots -albeit briefly- into giving him a shot because he alledgedly worked hard on his shortcomings.

    Chip Kelly, if you hire this guy, you deserve to crash and burn.

  34. Find him rather annoying, just as I would anyone who talks about the same thing all the time. He’s fun to watch though and I think he could probably play in the NFL if he just kept concentrated on football and not trying to convince people of other things.

  35. If he is here as the third stringer i am a ok with that becaus ehe is a hard worker and good team guy. Haven’t seen him play so i don’t know much about his mechanics, but that can be changed with reps. Its just muscle memory. If he has thrown 10 thousand passes in the last two years with correct motion then it should indeed be fixed

  36. I actually wouldn’t mind the Packers taking a look at him. All they have behind Rodgers right now is Tolzien. Tebow is polarizing but I have always been indifferent with him. I see why people like him and I see why people don’t. He plays ugly but he is a winner, if his mechanics are fixed enough where he can play well for a whole game, I would watch that. I doubt the Packers would bring him in, they will take a QB in the draft.

  37. He should have went to the CFL instead of throwing in shorts and a wife beater and doin college games the last 2 years.. That being said he needs to be on an NFL roster that’s for sure..

    —————-

    Plot twist, Ivan Drago is Luke McCown!

  39. “If he can elevate his performance for the rest of a given game . . . ”

    This is a crack-up. If he could play as well as he sometimes played and do it during games and practice he could be an NFL QB. He has had many chances to elevate. That elevator is on the top floor.

  40. People don’t hate Tebow they hate his fans. They treat him like hes best qb on every roster no matter what. They stir up drama amongst the media and fan base of what ever team he plays for. So then the coaches and players have to answer assanine questions about practices, and reps, and playing time for a 3rd string qb. Then everything goes meta and we have to listen to tv and talk radio and Internet coverage about “if all the tebow coverage is a distraction to the team”.

    If Tebows fans would just lay off and stop all the vocal praising and defending of him he would probably not be looking for his 4th team right now. In fact he probably would have never been without a job in the NFL.

  41. I am so tired of this. If tebow has improved his throwing (motion, accurary,…everything) where is the video proof of this? I simply don’t believe the results are as good as what these people are saying. if they were as good as advertised, it would be all over espn.

  42. ROFLMAO!!!!!!!!

    Oh I can’t WAIT to watch the T-Maniacs fall all over themselves to convince us he is actually “good” while he sucks the entire time.

    PLEASE sign him. I LOVE pointing out just how bad he is and watching the genuflecting freak out.

  43. Looks like an orchestrated move by the NFL to take attention off all the negative stuff. Good work PR peeps!

    GOOD LUCK to you!!

    ——————————————————————————-
    Not to single you out but this is the problem.

    The Eagles are talking about maybe making him their 3rd string qb, and 1/2 of the people on this post are already talking like he’s going to, or at least should, see the field.

    Best case scenario is that he’s a hard worker and a good guy that Chip likes. So Chip gives him a chance to stick on the roster and hone his craft with 1 of the 32 best qb coaches in the world. After at least 2 or 3 years of that if everything goes exactly like Tebow had hoped he’ll get a chance to compete for a starting job on a team with an old vet, a young struggling qb in his 2nd or 3rd year, or possibly with other street free agents vying to be a bridge player until that team drafts there next franchise qb or the one they have finishes developing.

    Then and only then will he have a chance to prove everybody wrong.

    If Tebow fans will accept that and not make a big stink when he’s on the bench, maybe he will actually get that chance to be a starter in the NFL again one day. It just won’t be with the Eagles.

  45. Tom House caught Hank Aaron’s record breaking HR while he was in the bullpen.

  46. ““When he was released by the Patriots, because of Tom Brady, he came to us. . . . ”

    This guy is acting like any Patriots 2nd or 3rd string QB would be immediately cut if they’re not as good as future HOFer Tom Brady. He was released by the Patriots because he was a quarterback and he couldn’t throw a football.

  47. You learn fundamentals when you’re 10…not 27.

    Wow, what a revelation the NFL could save a lot of money … Who needs line coaches u can’t change there mechanics ….. All assistant coaches need to be fired right away …. What intelligence, will save millions

    Wouldn’t bet on this version either.

    you are 100% right in the first part, but would this supposedly great QB coach really put his reputation on the line for a guy that at best will get a contract with no signing bonus. his job was to change him from an outfielder to a 3rd basemen, i think he is confident enough in tebow to believe that he accomplished this.

  49. Tebow plays by the grace of talents blessed upon him by the Lord Jesus Christ. He hath proven himself to be the instrument of the Lord’s gift when he led Denver unto the 29-23 victory over the idolater Roethlisberger.

    Incensed by the cleansing power by which the Lord bathed Tebow, the frightened demons a-gathered and a jealous doom was a-written by those who ply deception and falsity to the unpious.

    Tebow, a soldier of God, has persevered. He will smite the many-horned kine and lava-mouthed fiend. He will return to the NFL and lead a team of Goodly Men to a victory worthy of He who creates all.

    “Then King Cyrus gave them to a man named Sheshbazzar, whom he had appointed governor, and he told him, ‘Take these articles and go and deposit them in the temple in Jerusalem. And rebuild the house of God on its site.’ So this Sheshbazzar came and laid the foundations of the house of God in Jerusalem. From that day to the present it has been under construction but is not yet finished.” – Ezra 5:14

  50. Sorry, but it’s easy to concentrate on mechanics on a practice field. When JJ Watts, Cam Wake, Suh, or any number of great NFL linemen are blowing up the pocket and forcing a quick decision his mechanics will revert.

    You learn fundamentals when you’re 10…not 27.

    This is exactly right. It’s muscle memory. On a practice field under no pressure you can think about your mechanics and get them right. Once a 320lb db is locked and loaded on you it goes out the window and you revert to form. It takes thousands of balls thrown at a young age to create the correct motion even if it comes naturally and many more if not. In your mid twenties it may not be possible. It boggles my mind that Tebow went his entire career starting before high school without his poor mechanics being recognized and corrected. He was completely failed.

  51. Let Manning start the game. Let Tebow play 4th quarter to finish the game. You can’t get any better than that. Imagine the Broncos with Tebow backing up Manning!

  52. Some jackass actually said the over/under for Tebow passing yards in a game is 50. Huh, tell that to the Steelers in the playoffs, when Tebow dropped 316 on ’em. This was the game that the Broncos coaching staff sorta/almost figured out how to use the guy.

    How about the 308 he dropped on the Texans in 2010 in one of his 1st starts? This was a coaching staff (interim) that just let the guy make plays and didn’t overthink and force things.

    The reality is is Tebow is uber, uber careful when throwing the ball, but really, really trusts himself (& his “God”) at the end of a pressure-packed game. These seem to be massively important traits in a quarterback, as well as off-the-charts leadership. But no, teams fall for the guy with the big arm who throws pinpoint spirals who chokes at the end. Since when does throwing ability strictly translate to competitiveness and sheer will?

  53. These ” Guru’s” crack me up…you do realize he is hired by Tebow…what else would you think he would say? Just like that guy that RGlll hired was giving him a B+ grade for last years performance. And what’s up with its Tom Brady’s fault? Stupid comment

  54. Would be great to see Chip Kelly sign him and with a revamped, unconventional team throttle the NFC East know it all teams..Patriots of the NFC..Good luck Tim!

  55. House went out of his way to say that ALL they did was work on mechanics. Are mechanics the ONLY thing that held Tebow back in the past?
    So, can he read D?
    Can he react under pressure?
    etc, etc, etc

    Having said that, were I the Iggles, I’d sign him.

  56. “Tebow Time Tebow Time, across the U.S.A.! Tebow Time Tebow Time, hey hey heyyy!”

    Do it. I want my WWNFL. Game sucks now anyways, crappy all offense rules. Not enough talented QBs for 32 teams, so I want the circus…

    All I know is that one Saturday at a bar in Culver City, the entire place went nuts twice – Beast Quake run vs the Saints, and Tebow to Demaryius for the game winning TD…

    Since the league sucks, “I want to be entertained!” Maximus!

  57. A few observations:

    1. The reading comprehension of some of you guys is scary. Tebow went to House because of Tom Brady, not he was released because of Tom Brady. Commas mean something people.

    2. Can we stop with the “he’s a winner crap”. Trent Dilfer won a Superbowl does that mean he’s a better QB than Jim Kelly or Dan Marino? Tebow did elevate his game in the 4th quarter so I have no issue calling him clutch but the first 3+ quarters are so bad his team is behind more often than not.

    3. 47% completion rate. He was the least accurate QB in the league.

    4. It’s very difficult to completely rework mechanics enough that they become ingrained. Usually when the bullets are flying people revert back to what they’ve always done (muscle memory). Tebow’s memory is missing over half his passes.

    5. Being a clipboard holder won’t help him. He needs to go to Canada or the Arena League and get some playing time in a pass heavy league.

  58. Can’t believe some people still think Timmy’s a “winner” since there’s nothing on this NFL resume to back that up. And as for chances, McGenius was his first chance, Fox was his second, Rex Ryan his third and Bill Belichick his fourth. How many chances does he ‘deserve’?

  59. I don’t have any feelings about Tebow one way or the other, but the emotions that he evokes both in those who revere him and revile him are hilarious.

    He’s truly a divisive figure – which makes him perfect for a future political career.

  60. Chip Kelly’s plan:

    1) Sign Tebow
    2) Trade Tebow and Bradford to Rams in exchange for Foles.
    3) Release DeMarco Murray
    4) Figure out a way to trade for McCoy

  61. Tebow doesn’t need redemption; NFL decision-makers do. He has accomplished more in the NFL than many current starting QBs, but can’t get any interest for a roster spot for two years because he doesn’t fit the mold of what the NFL thinks a QB should look and play like. That type of Neanderthal approach is what led Buffalo to play Rob Johnson ahead of Flutie. Players like Cassel, McCown, and Fitzpatrick are in starting jobs, while Tebow can’t get a job with what he has done in the league? Disgraceful.

  62. Come to Oakland, Tim! Spend a season or 2, mentor Carr, get back in an NFL environment, sharpen your overall skill set and prepare for free agency. Just having a positive influence like him in the locker room would be a boost for this team.

  63. Say what you will, but I’d love for my beloved DALLAS COWBOYS to sign him. Romo isn’t making it to the end of that ridiculous contract. It’s not like we have a better prospect on the roster if (or when) Romo goes down. Dallas hasn’t exactly done a great job of developing QBs either. Lastly, Dallas is also the ONLY team in the NFL that does not have to share revenue from jersey sales. Just food for thought.

  64. Could you imagine him on the raiders!?! It might actually tear a hole in the universe.

  65. Fundamentals wasn’t the problem his mechanics was the problem. If that’s solved you got something. He knows football and toughness?…no questions there. Can line up a lot of different ways and 2nd string qb …I’d want to look at him now If I was head coach.

  66. After years of extensive work on his mechanics, Tebow will now miss open receivers by only 10 yards instead of 20! Nice job!!!

  67. No one will deny that Tebow is a great person. The kind of person that you want to be around. But the fact is that he lived and died that season in Denver by having a great defense to keep him in games while he played so terribly. When you bring Tebow in you bring the circus to town. Even if he is the 3rd or 4th stringer, if the team has a bad game the first question asked of the coach after the game is why didn’t you put Tebow in if you were struggling? I think he’s too much distraction. He might have an amazing heart, but if a team isn’t willing to make him the starter then they shouldn’t keep him as a backup because the tebow fans and the media won’t let you live it down for not playing him.

  68. magnumpimustache says:
    Mar 17, 2015 10:46 PM
    He should have played for Arizona in the playoffs. Tebow would have beaten cam newton.

    THATS WHAT I’M SAYIN!

  69. I’d be more impressed if he actually tried to improve his game by proving he could play professional QB in a league like the CFL vs. doing nothing for 2 years…

  70. you know, I like Tebow if for no other reason that has character and stands for what he believes in. I like that he is a Christian, and isn’t afraid to say so. It’s troubling that we celebrate trash like the Pouncey brothers or Mike Wallace among others–among many others—but the sole reason Tebow is subject to hate is due to his character and beliefs.

    I’m rooting for the guy.

  71. Thiis just goes to show you that it matters not what criminal activity you have been involved in. If you are capable of being better than most at your position you will play in the NFL and be forgiven no matter what you have done provided you are not in jail like Hernandez.

    A guy like Tebow, clean slate so far, religious individual, cannot catch a break. The only reason I can arrive at this is because he just cannot play well enough. Were that the case he would be. There are too many criminals in this game starting every week and besides them are players that have temporarily lost their ability through injury and then made comebacks.
    Adrian Peterson fits both of these scenarios btw. Tebow is out of the NFL and he is not going to get a chance. That is because he is not an NFL caliber QB. Everything else is hogwash, side show, religion etc. He just cant play the position period. As far as the playoffs in Denver go, even a blind squirrel finds nut.

  72. I think all the people talking about the great defense in Denver that “carried” Tebow are forgetting that A)He had numerous 4th quarter comeback victories that year and B)That defense wasn’t winning any games before he took the wheel on offense.

    Winning ugly is still better than losing. How many fans out there wish they had a QB who could routinely pull out some ugly wins instead of continually falling into some mediocre losses?

    To all the haters who will bash him upon reading this; there are people who just give up and move on while accepting failure and then there’s tim tebow. Tim didn’t switch to rb or wr when everyone said he should.
    _____________

    Wrong. He gave up on being an NFL QB when he refused to head to Canada. He went to TV. He is under the delusion that working with specialists will magically fix his known detriments of crappy mechanics, poor throwing skills, inability to read defenses and media freak show.

  75. Of course Tom House will say Tim looks much better. He has been being paid Thousands of dollars to teach him. What is he going to say No Tim still sucks as a QB I suck at my job? If Tim looked that much better the Eagles would not of let him leave the building unsigned. by the way Tebow did not win that playoff game, he may of thrown the ball 15 yards but it was DT that won that game with is great stiff arm and 60 yard run after the catch. Tim Tebow stats that year 46.5% completion out of 271 throws, 12 turn overs and 33 sacks (1 sack for every 8 drop backs). There were 76 other QB with a better completion % in 2011

  76. Mar 17, 2015 11:44 PM – dinofrank60 says: The last five NFL games Tim Tebow has started: One win, four losses.

    The eleven before that? Eight wins, three losses.

    Overall record when the opponent scores fewer than 39 points? Nine wins, two losses.

  77. If Tebow is so religious, why isn’t he married and knocking out lots of children? Instead, he’s doing what any young guy would do — he’s playing the field hoping to score.

    I’d love to see him teach us a religious lesson. How about letting a whale swallow him and let’s see what happens?

    Really, all these Tebow backers must be blind. Because it was so obvious Tebow cannot throw a football well enough to play in the NFL. He had his chance and he proved he is not good enough to play in the NFL.

    So let him go on a Mission somewhere and be done with it.

  78. House said in prior articles that Brady recommended Tebow come work with House to improve, because Brady has also worked with House. The quote is a bit garbled; Brady didn’t drive Tebow off the team, he just suggested Tebow work with the guy once he was off.

    People with little football understanding continue to claim this. Tebow made a nice throw and yes, Thomas also made a nice play. But that 60 yard run after the catch was because the safety was out of position, cheating to the line of scrimmage to spy on Tebow.

  80. davemegget

    No. I think House meant that Brady recommended House to Tebow.

    Few remember that House was in the left field bullpen in Atlanta in 1974 and he caught Hank Aaron’s 715th HR on the fly.

    People with little football understanding continue to claim this. Tebow made a nice throw and yes, Thomas also made a nice play. But that 60 yard run after the catch was because the safety was out of position, cheating to the line of scrimmage to spy on Tebow.

    Actually…..edaniel82 was correct. Denver def won that game, and to be honest the safety fell down on the pass, the only reason Tebow completed the pass……..my 103 yr old grandmother could of completed that pass. Tebow is out of the league for a reason…he is awful.

    At this point he probably throws a tighter spiral than Papa Johns over in Denver.

    Totally agree, day made!

  83. I wish the Bears would sign this guy. Fox had him in Denver so he’s familiar with the coach. He’s actually a leader and has passion on the field, so the opposite of Cutler. I think it would do two things for the Bears. 1. Let Cutler know his leash is short and 2. Let the fan base know they want competition at the position.

  84. Tim Tebow fans are ridiculous!

    Complete waste of time. Do people already for got that he had the worst completion % and he was only good at running?

  85. Steelers should call… give a couple years for AFTER Big Ben ! (or even if Ben gets hurt…)..

    our backups… well….

    and after all… (if you can’t beat them, have them join you !)

    seriously.. look at the last few REAL QB backups in Pittsburgh, Bruce Gradkowski, when with Raiders… beat us… Batch… when signed from Detriot… its what the Steelers do

  86. Tebow has been released by Elway and Belichick, so it is highly unlikely that he is an NFL caliber quarterback, He is, however, a good broadcaster and a great guy.

  87. If my memory serves me correctly isn’t Tom House the pitcher who served up Hank Aarons’ 715th home run?
