When talent doesn’t work hard.
- Tim Notke
Except when the talent is Peyton Manning. . .
So it looks like the Tim Tebow Revival is firing up to hit the road. There is no question that Tim is a stand-up guy. A great leader and in the words of his former boss, the kind of person you want your daughter to marry.
His former boss is also perhaps the only person in Denver, or the country for that matter, to NOT do the Tebowing move.
“ I’ll Tebow when he wins us a championship”
- you can add that to your never going to see that happen list.
Tebow revitalized a team, a season, a city and heck even a country. He also revitalized TV ratings and many a sport writers career.
So with this in mind, we can look to teams, perhaps in need of a QB but more importantly, in need of a revival.
The benefits of a revival include popularity (increased fan base), marketability, and most importantly, winning!
So, which teams had losing records, lousy TV ratings, and terrible fan attendance? Lets rank them based on 2011 attendance records.
#23 Minnesota 3 – 13
Though in need of a revival and a new stadium, the Vikings seem to be content with the QB talent they have. Besides, they’ve done the QB revival tour more than once already and probably have had their fill.
#24 Buffalo 6 – 10 (with one Blackout)
They seem to have found a gem of a talented QB and need to build the team up more in other areas. I doubt they will sign up for the tour.
#25 Jacksonville 5 – 11
They seem to be the odds on favorite and who would blame them. Tebow’s backyard, an owner that needs to turn around his investment, not to mention try and win back some pissed off fans, and finally get out of the division and TV ratings basement. Oh yeah, and make some money to selling merchandise.
#26 Chicago 8 – 8
Nope, they have two good QB’s now. It’s not their fault their fans stink.
#27 Arizona 8 – 8
You know, if they really are sour on Kolb, and have remorse for losing out on the Peyton sweepstakes, then anything is possible. But look for Larry Fitzgerald to go postal if they do.
#28 Miami 6 – 10
They couldn’t sign him if they tried. In fact, I’m beginning to wonder if they can sign anybody.
#29 Oakland 8 – 8
Nope, sorry, Jason left because the team got a better QB. Besides, can you see Tebow with this?
#30 Tampa Bay 4 – 12 (one Blackout)
Maybe, it is Florida after all, but I am not sold on them replacing the QB they’ve got already.
#31 St. Louis 2 – 14
You know, this might be a possibility if they were not so in favor of their current starting QB. They traded away their #2 pick to avoid a QB controversy. They are not about to trade right back into one.
#32 Cincinnati 9 – 7 (one Blackout)
I would actually think the other Ohio team (Cleveland) would be a better candidate but hey they ranked a whopping #18 in fan attendance. The Bungals also have managed to completely mortgage the farm and are drowning in debt because of the economy tanking. They even sold a hospital to help pay the bills attributed to their stadium and local sports teams. What better way to revitalize a franchise, a stadium and save the economy than by bringing in Tebow?
