How’s that for a ringing endorsement of the Philadelphia Eagles’ newest quarterback Tim Tebow, who’s competing … gasp …. for a backup QB spot with Mark Sanchez, Matt Barkley and G.J. Kinne behind presumed starter Sam Bradford.
Tebow is being ripped by no less than Ex-NFL kicker (technically a free agent) Jay Feely, somewhat of a journeyman that has played for the Florida Bobcats, Tampa Storm, Atlanta Falcons, New York Giants, Miami Dolphins, Kansas City Chiefs, New York Jets, Arizona Cardinals and Chicago Bears, per USA TODAY Sports FTW.
“He’s such a dichotomy for me,” Feely told Jim Rome. “Because I really respect the person, the man, the things that he believes in and the things he does off the field. He was the single-worst quarterback I ever saw in my career in the NFL.” Ouch.
Then he shared a little story to explain his point: “[He was throwing] routes on air, there’s no [defensive backs], you know exactly what he’s going to run, there’s no pass rush. He had like 13 incompletions on routes on air. Jim, you and I could go out and do routes on air and we would complete most of our passes.”
