Don't stick a fork in Tim Tebow ... 'cause he ain't done in the NFL just yet ... at least according to NY Giants quarterback David Carr.
Carr -- the #1 overall pick in the 2002 NFL Draft -- was at LAX last night when we asked him if Tebow's release from the Jets signaled the end for the former Heisman Trophy winner.
Despite the media funeral for Tim's career, Carr still thinks there's hope.
As for Mark Sanchez's future in New York ... well, check out the video.
NY Giants David Diehl
After DUI Guilty Plea
2/11/2013 6:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Forget Super Bowl rings ... New York Giants star David Diehl just earned some new hardware -- a SCRAM bracelet ... after pleading guilty to DUI ... TMZ has learned.
As we reported, Diehl was busted last June in Queens after he crashed into a parked car -- and according to the D.A. his blood alcohol level was .182 ... more than twice the legal limit in New York.
Diehl pled guilty today to aggravated DUI and impaired driving.
Diehl was ordered to wear a SCRAM bracelet -- to monitor his alcohol consumption -- for 90 days and was placed on a 6-month conditional discharge program ... meaning he'll avoid jail if he keeps his nose clean.
The two-time Super Bowl champ was also ordered to pay $1,200 in restitution and $300 in fines.
Strahan Was ROBBED!
H.O.F. Voters Are a Joke
2/5/2013 3:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Ex-NFL superstar Eric Dickerson is calling out the Hall of Fame voters as a bunch of non-football-playing posers ... after they passed over Michael Strahan for the honor this year.
Dickerson was in New Orleans when he ripped the sportswriters who vote on the H.O.F. ... telling us, "I think they're biased in a lot of ways. They don't like certain guys ... Them sportswriters don't even know how to put uniforms on, most of 'em."
E.D., who was voted into the Hall in 1999, said he wasn't sure why voters snubbed Strahan, and thinks the Giants great will get in eventually -- but he's still not convinced writers are fit to judge legends of the game.
"Has a sportswriter ever lined up against Michael Strahan? Has a sportswriter ever lined up across from me? No, I wish one would, 'cause I could run over their asses."
Hmm ... sportswriters vs. players? Beats the Pro Bowl.

Two Huge NFL Stars
Vouch for Ankle Doctor
10/17/2012 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Derek Jeter made the RIGHT MOVE by trusting his busted ankle to Dr. Robert Anderson ... so says two NFL superstars who tell TMZ Anderson was able to bring them back from some MAJOR foot injuries.
We spoke with Houston Texans QB Matt Schaub ... who went under Anderson's knife over the summer to repair Lisfranc injury (displaced bones) in his right foot.
Schaub tells us ... "Jeter is in great hands ... Dr. Anderson is the best in the business at what he does."
In fact, Schaub says Anderson exceeded his expectations when it came to recovery time -- "Everything was on schedule, and even ahead of schedule."
Schaub also had some words of wisdom for DJ -- "[Jeter] should follow all procedures that he's told and don't worry about anything ... [he] will be even better after the procedure than he was before going in.”
New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw says he also owes his career to Dr. Anderson -- telling TMZ the doc was able to treat him for multiple foot injuries ... and he hasn't lost a step.
"I had the greatest experience ... his staff around him is top of the line ... but to have the best doctor in the world, it's even more comforting."
So far, the extent of Jeter's ankle injury is unclear -- but he's scheduled to undergo surgery Saturday in Charlotte, NC.
We Got a Ring!!! [PHOTO]
5/17/2012 10:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The New York Giants FINALLY got their Super Bowl rings last night -- three months after winning the championship -- and they're more beautiful than we could ever have imagined.
The ring -- designed by Tiffany & Co. -- is made of white gold and COVERED in diamonds. The top of the ring alone is lined with 37 blue sapphires.
The ring (pictured above on cornerback Will Blackmon's finger) also includes the final score of Super Bowl XLVI (21-17) -- when Giants trounced the New England Patriots for the second time in four years.
The four Vince Lombardi trophies (look for the footballs) represent the team's four championships (1986, 1990, 2007 and 2011).
It's hard to put a value on something like a Super Bowl ring -- but the hardware alone is probably worth five figures. They got a ring!!!
Ex-NY Giants Star
RIPS Jeremy Shockey --
He's a TERRIBLE Person!!
3/15/2012 7:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
NFL bad ass Jeremy Shockey is a horrible teammate and an even worse person ... this according to a guy who would know ... former NY Giants wide receiver Amani Toomer.
Toomer -- who played with Shockey for 6 years in NY -- CRUSHED the tight end on his Twitter page this morning ... after Jeremy said he'd be open to returning to the Giants.
As our friends at ProFootballTalk.com pointed out ... Shockey left the Giants on really bad terms in 2008 ... insisting he would NEVER play for the team again.
Now, Toomer wants to make sure Shockey's kept to his word ... tweeting, "No!! Shockey ‘I will never play4 you again!’ he yelled at jerry Reese in 08. Let him keep his word. Bad teammate, worse person."
It's unclear why Toomer has so much anger towards his former teammate.
Shockey -- who played for the Carolina Panthers last season -- has yet to respond.
10:00 AM PST -- Well, Shockey responded ... tweeting, "Yes remember when [Toomer's] ex divorced him and he urinated on a her cloths [sic] I guess he’s the good person.”
Shockey is referring to Amani's divorce ... when back in 2007, Toomer's ex-wife alleged he once peed on her clothes.
A few minutes later, Shockey continued, "Go get a bucket of rocks and start throwing them at your glass house."
Angelina from 'Jersey Shore'
I'm Not DATING Ahmad Bradshaw
... But We're REALLY Close
2/10/2012 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
NY Giants star running back Ahmad Bradshaw has apparently developed an extra-special relationship with former "Jersey Shore" star Angelina Pivarnick ... TMZ has learned ... but the Staten Island Dump insists they're NOT officially dating.
Angelina was at Saddle Ranch in L.A. yesterday ... when we asked point blank if they were together ... and we were met with an uncomfortable silence ... followed by, "I'm not dating him ... like, no."
Pivarnick explained, "We've hung out together ... we're really close, he's a cool dude."
"I think he's a hot black ... I'm not gonna deny that. I would be lying if I told you he wasn't hot."
Angelina recently posted a photo of the two lookin' all cozy at a NY club a few weeks ago -- they look platonic to you?
We called Bradshaw's agent for comment ... so far, no response.
So, we gotta ask ...
Lucky Giants Fan
I Bet on a Safety, Won $50k
... And It's All Going to CHARITY
2/6/2012 2:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Just when you wanted to hate the guy for winning $50,000 on a freak Super Bowl bet -- Giants fan Jona Rechnitz tells TMZ, he's donating every last cent to multiple charities ... INCLUDING one of Tom Brady's choice.
In case you didn't know, Jona -- who runs a successful real estate company in New York -- hit the JACKPOT yesterday, betting $1,000 on the Giants to score the first points in the big game with a safety. The odds were 50 to 1.
Jona tells us, he plans to donate $5,000 to Tom's charity of choice -- in the hopes Tom and the Pats will match it -- and $5,000 to the charities of choice for the Giants defensive linemen who made the safety play. Jona also wants to take Tom out for an all-expenses-paid falafel dinner.
As for the rest, Jona says he plans to divide up the balance after taxes ... and donate it to a bunch of charities benefiting the less fortunate.
Jona says he only makes one bet a year -- on the Super Bowl -- and this year, it finally paid off.
New York Giants
The VICTORY SONG
on the Plane Ride Home
2/6/2012 10:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The New York Giants CELEBRATED THEIR FACES OFF on the plane ride home from the Super Bowl ... singing and dancing like crazy ... and it was all captured on tape.
Linebacker Mark Herzlich posted a video on his Twitter page ... featuring running back Andre Brown leading a chant in which he screamed, "I GOT A RING!" ... and the guys would respond, "WE GOT ONE TOO!"
Herzlich tweeted a note with the video that read, "I'd say we are pretty excited."
It's safe to say the New England Patriots flight was quite different.
