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 NY Jets suck just like the state they call home. Tebow is better off anywhere else. To take him on the team and not play him made no sense. Sucks for Tebow that they wasted a season for him.

Mocking his Christianity?? That's disgusting.

And there's no way you'd do this if he was Jewish, obviously. So....nice job demonstrating your bias.

Dont know much or care much about football but seems weird so many are happy about someone getting cut from a team, wonder why that is? A lot of hate. If he is such a bad player why and how did he receive the heisman trophy. Does that usually go to bad players?

I am elated that Tim Tebow got cut! He doesn't know how to orchestrate the quarterback position. An cannot throw the football down the field consistently nor accurately. Become a coach or ESPN analyst or model or even a preacher! :)

I guess he should say he's gay, or get popped for drugs, or maybe fight dogs, even cheat on his wife (if he was married), or make a sex tape. THEN people would like him.....pathetic.

I'm not a huge pro football fan or a giant Christian but I'm really tired of all the flack hurled Tim Tebow's way. I don't know about his skills as a player but I don't think he has hurt animals, murdered anyone, or had 5 kids from 5 different women like some NFL players. I hope he finds a team that will really give him a chance to play. Rex Ryan is a joke.

I do believe in God and most of us do and never say it here .. Tim Tebow will not go down but that team will and so will their coach .. TEAM TEBOW HERE AND GONNA FOLLOW HIM WHERE HE GOES WITH A HOST OF FANS WHO CAN'T WAIT TO SEE HIM ON THE FIELD NEXT SEASON AND DON'T LIKE HOW HE WAS TREATED AND TRADED BEFORE .. HELL WITH THOSE PEOPLE, I am not a turn the other cheek Christian.. more like a do unto others one woho wants to see them fail and they did ,,. good!
