The third-string quarterback has left the building
Tebow, famous for being sincere and religious, has even won a playoff game, beating the Steelers two years ago while in Denver, where the love-hate relationship with NFL fans was created. He was chased out by Payton Manning after leadership there ruled he would not be the team's future. But he never really played in NY and he was hated by many.
He ended the season as the third option and the team drafted a quarterback this weekend, and it's no surprised he was released. But when it happened, the Associated Press issued an APNewsAlert:
It may seem an overreaction, but you cannot deny the power of fame and celebrity in our news media and in our sports coverage. And considering the exaggerated value placed on him and this story of NY's QB situation, the AP is obligated to make sure member paper's get the story, which is why within an hour they had a lengthy, 35-inch story read for use. I posted it.
