Our quarterback, which art in New York ... Tim Tebow be thy name ... YOU'RE FIRED!!!

Tebow will no longer have the opportunity to deliver the New York Jets from evil, 'cause the team cut his ass ... just days after drafting another QB with a more fluid throwing motion (Geno Smith).

Jets coach Rex Ryan said in a release today, "We have a great deal of respect for Tim Tebow. Unfortunately, things did not work out the way we all had hoped. Tim is an extremely hard worker, evident by the shape he came back in this offseason. We wish him the best moving forward."

The Jets acquired Tebow last year in a trade, but he threw only eight passes this past season. The move cost the Jets over $4 million.

You may be seated.

The Jets didn't even play Tebow. They are a garbage team with a garbage coach.

Which moves the Jets into even dumber territory in keeping one of the worst QBs in the league to not even start a guy who had just punted the Steelers out of the playoffs, without any help from any of the other team in Denver.

TMZ you sound happy they cut Tebow. Since he doesn't approve of your perverted lifestyles I guess it's ok to bash him huh?
