Jay Feely: Tim Tebow is the worst Quarterback in the NFL - Watch

Tim Tebow is such a bad quarterback, said Cardinals’ kicker Jay Feely, that he couldn’t beat air. Feely made the comments on Jim Rome’s Showtime program, set to air on Wednesday.

“He’s such a dichotomy for me, because I really respect the person, the man, the things that he believes in and the things he does off-the-field,” Feely said in an episode that airs Wednesday.

“He was the single worst quarterback I ever saw in my career in the NFL. Like I watched him one day, I sat and watched him do routes on air with Ken Whisenhunt as we were playing the Broncos. Routes on air there’s no DBs, you know exactly what he’s going to run, there’s no pass-rush. He had like 13 incompletions in routes on air. Like (host) Jim (Rome), you and I could go out and do routes on air and we’d complete most of our passes.”

Harsh would be an understatement. It’s true that Tebow was not accurate over three professional seasons with the Broncos and Jets. He has a career completion percentage of 47.9 with 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions. A small sample size (35 games), but not a promising one.

That’s part of the reason why the former Florida star has been out of the league for the last two seasons. So why, then, would Chip Kelly sign him as a fourth quarterback?

“[Kelly] thinks his system is better than everyone’s and his system’s going to work and it doesn’t matter if he gets rid of star players like DeSean Jackson or LeSean McCoy,” Feely said. “He think he’s smarter so I can take a guy that everybody else has quit on and I can make him work and utilize him.”

Prepare for more Tebow chatter, because it’s not going to disappear any time soon. Kelly has found a way to keep eyes glued to his team for the entire offseason.
