    He's moving the chains right now for Philly's third-team offense, in a preseason tilt with the Colts. Eagles fans will love him for as long as he's completing throws.

    One bad overthrow in the end zone, and a recovered fumble off a handoff, but he got them downfield with several nice throws. He wasn't rewarded with points for his troubles in his opening drive, though, as the kicker missed an easy Field Goal.

    Sacked on third down on his second drive, in part the O-Line fault as a tackle got pushed back right into him.

    Sacked again on third down the next drive but it was negated by a defensive penalty. Struggling already to get the ball off, although he's taking too long to either take off or release the ball. Third drive ended when his receiver dropped a pass Tebow laid in his hands.

    If the Eagles' third-string O-Line was halfway competent he'd have half a chance. On his fourth drive coming in off an interception, the third down pass from Tebow was rushed and overthrown.

    2-for-8 on his most recent passes after starting out a perfect 4-for-4.

    6-for-12 with 69 yards passing, 15 yards on 4 rushes including one rushing TD for Timmy. He did not outplay the preferred 3rd QB in Matt Barkley, so don't get those hopes up to high, Tebow fans! To be fair, the O-Line for Tebow was awful.

    He won't last long. During regular season, he will begin to come unglued under pressure and than his rear end will be occupying a bench on the sidelines for the rest of the NFL season.

    Super Bowl-Shuffling coaching legend and Family-values wannabe politician "Mike Ditkerrrrrrr" likes what we sees! Cuz Timmy's all wholesome and whatnot!

    http://www.nj.com/eagles/index.ssf/2015/08/mike_ditka_chip_kelly_eagles_should_keep_tim_tebow.html

    NJ.com"If I was coaching today I would acquire Tim Tebow, too," Ditka told Harry Mayes and Rob Ellis on 97.5 FM The Fanatic. "I'd find places to use him on my football team. I think players like Tim Tebow are good for sports. Good for football. Good for our country.

    "He has character. You can't buy character. A lot of people say they have it, but they don't when it comes down to the nitty-gritty. You've got a guy right there who will be there right til the end.

    "I'm not saying he's the most talented guy. But, you can get a lot of productivity out of him in some areas. I think Chip will use him properly. That's all."

    Without resorting to Mom-and-apple-pie like Ditka, this Iggles fan gives a far more logical rationale for keeping Tebow as the third-stringer.

    http://www.bleedinggreennation.com/2015/8/19/9173671/philadelphia-eagles-tim-tebow-matt-barkley-third-string-qb-2015

    Bleeding Green NationIf both Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez go down, the Eagles are screwed anyway.

    Matt Barkley is going to dink and dunk and turn the ball over. At this point in his career he is a replacement level player, the Eagles have had him available for trade in exchange for peanuts and no one has dealt for him. If they cut him, he'll very likely be available during the season if needed.

    Tebow too is a replacement level player, he's been available as a free agent since the Patriots cut him during 2013 training camp. But in the Eagles offense there's reason to believe that he can be reasonably effective on the ground, and as a starter in Denver he was able to occasionally get the ball to his wide receivers for big plays, whereas Barkley in extremely limited playing time made no plays.

    As a "pure" QB, Matt Barkley is the better player than Tim Tebow. But when you're down two QBs, all hell has broken loose and a street free agent caliber passer can't help you. As bad a passer as he is, Tebow gives the Eagles offense options that Barkley never can.

    Just late 4th Qtr action for Timmy tonight vs. Baltimore. Still made the front pages on sports sites, though.

    He almost ran for a TD but missed a wide open receiver in the end zone to scramble instead. He also hung onto the ball too long and got sacked for 12 yards.

    Just in for the 2-point conversions and late-game action last night. Still making front pages, tho! (Heck, I keep clicking the links, so why not?) icon_lol.gif

    http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-shutdown-corner/nfl-preseason-blitz--tim-tebow-tries-his-new-role-for-hot-eagles-021053806.html

    Yahoo!One of the thoughts when the Philadelphia Eagles signed quarterback Tim Tebow was that Chip Kelly could use him as a two-point conversion specialist.

    It made sense. Tebow is a great goal-line option because he's big and athletic.
    And if preseason is any indication, there will be many more two-point tries throughout the NFL with the new extra point rule. On Saturday night, Kelly rolled out that plan, sending Tebow in for the first two two-point conversions of the game.

    It didn't go well
    , though it was a very tiny sample. On the first attempt, Tebow was stuffed on a run. On the second, he fielded a low snap, tried to hit a quick slant to Nelson Agholor but Green Bay Packers cornerback Casey Hayward almost intercepted it. The pass fell incomplete. The Eagles kicked extra points after that. Tebow was 2-of-2 for 15 yards and rushed for 4 yards on three attempts in limited playing time late in the game.

    "One more chaaaaaaaaaance... baby, give him one more chaaaaaaaaaaance..."

    http://sports.yahoo.com/news/tebow-getting-biggest-chance-eagles-last-exhibition-203424756--nfl.html

    AP, via Yahoo!Tim Tebow is getting his last chance this offseason to prove he should stay with the Eagles as their third-string quarterback.

    The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner is expected to see a lot of playing time in Philadelphia's final exhibition game on Thursday against the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium.

    ''It's been an awesome journey,'' Tebow said after Monday's practice.

    ''I've seen Tim improve since he's gotten here,'' Kelly said Monday. ''He's improved his throwing motion a great deal. ... Sequencing his throwing motion, so I think he's been more accurate.''

    In limited action in all three preseason games, and playing with all third and fourth-team players, Tebow has completed 10 of 19 passes for 97 yards without a touchdown or an interception. He has also run 10 times for 50 yards, with three first downs and a touchdown.

    ''He's had a good camp,'' Kelly said. ''He's got another big week this week.''

    Tebow says he's taking his usual approach.

    ''Stay focused, know what you have to do and then go do it,'' he said. ''I'm not nervous. I'm excited, but I'm always excited.''


    His competition, Barkley, is in his third year with the Eagles after being selected in the fourth round of the 2013 draft out of Southern California.

    But don't expect the players to feud over a job.

    ''I consider him a good friend. He has a great family,'' Tebow said. ''Sure we're competing, but you want to do things the right way. And opportunities and positions are never more important than character.''

    After TWO highlight-worthy TD tosses last night (one pick, but who cares) will Philadelphia Freedom shine on Timmy? His top competition, Matt Barkley, was just traded today to Arizona, leaving Tebow all alone as the third-string QB, assuming Chip Kelly wants to keep three QBs.

    Final cut time is tomorrow afternoon! (5 PM Eastern I think!) If he's still on Philly's roster by then, it's FLY EAGLES FLY! icon_biggrin.gif

    Ohhhhhhhhh, so close!

    Tebow was cut from the Eagles roster by this afternoon. icon_sad.gif Ah, well! It was his best preseason effort since he came into the league, so there's that!

    I think it'd be cool if SEC Network (ESPN) picks him right back up for College Football Gameday!

    Really REALLY not happy about Tebow being cut from the Eagles. I was hoping this would be his way back into the NFL and eventually onto the field. So sad for Timmy. He's a good man, and an amazing role model and, in my opinion, one of the most under-rated quarterbacks to ever play the game.
