    Stephen A talks about white privilege?? Did he say the same thing in reverse when Michael Jordan went to Birmingham to play baseball??? MJ was accepted in Alabama because he sell tickets and would put butts in the seats and he bought the team a $100k+ bus. I am a business man and it was a great business decision by the Birmingham Barons, but the entire baseball world new from the beginning that he had one chance in a thousand or longer odds to make a MLB team. Stephen is playing the race card when and where it has no place. what people do to extra time on TV. shame on you.

    Tebow played high school ball in Jax, was a college star at FL and the new coach is Urban. He is known as a great teammate by others and he could bring much needed fan excitement to a sport that needs it. If he fails, the haters can have their day clowning him.

    Tebow should be thanked. There is room on every NFL team for one gadget guy who may only play 3 or 4 plays a game. So those "retired" ex-NFL players who have been out of football for 7 or 8 years should call their old coaches and ask them for a tryout. I'm thinking maybe 350 pound specialty blocker or runner or blocker who comes out for 3 or 4 plays a game.

    Give the man a chance!! He is freakishly In shape with a great work ethic. That is some of the battle already. Urban is a smart man, there are Walk -ons and undrafted players that make it in this league. He is part of a 90 man roster. If he is with skills that will be found out , if he is a marketing ploy, he will be exposed . Give him a chance . To many haters in his world.

    I am assuming that Ryan Clark and Stephen Smith are indirectly referring to Kaepernick. Why is Tebow getting a shot and not Kap. Colin Kaepernick is not in the NFL because of his attitude. He got a look. Worked out for a number of teams and they walked away because of his attitude, Yes Kaepernick won two division titles and went to the super bowl but he did it with a solid talented team where as Tebow went 7-4 and won a playoff round with a bad team. Any QB with that 49er team would have done the same thing. Any quality QB. The following year Kap went 1-10 and regulated to 3rd string. His political protest especially wearing socks depicting police as pigs hurt him. His attitude and you owe me to the NFL hurt him. He is a me player and not a team player. That is why he never got a shot again. Tebow wont be a TE he will be lined up as a split end or run as a QB in situations around the goal line. He will help them in that manner. Other players who are out there who are still trying to get a shot and havent got one, that is not as a result of Tim Tebow. If you are a TE, RB, FB, LB or a DB these types of players are prime and teams need them for specials. If you are a quality football player you should be able to get a shot if you are not you either need to get another agent or get an agent to help you out. The opportunities are there.

    Plain and simple, Stephen A Smith is a flat-out racist. Tim will be a number of things for the Jaguars: 1. An outstanding ratings magnet... and a POSITIVE ratings magnet, not a negative one like Kap. 2. An unbelievable motivator across the field. His work ethic will DRIVE the Jags. They will be SERIOUS contenders in 1-2 years. 3. A tremendous coach "on the field". The man is an awesome athlete. By the way... I don't remember ANYONE talking so negatively about MJ playing for the Barons (and not so respectively so).

    I'm not a football fan but I will watch a Teabow game easily. Will NEVER watch a Kapernick game. He brings too much drama to the wrong arena. I watch a game for the sole purpose of entertainment. I don't wanna see athletes kneeling. I think when they do that it becomes political and it takes away from the game. So no I will never watch a Kapernick game.

    Tim Tebow won two (2) National Championships, a lot of regular season games and a playoff game throwing the football as a QB in the NFL ! Public racial and religious discrimination is why Tebow never got a fair shot in the NFL. Yeah it is serious because black privilege allows you to use black/white racism connotations on national media and allude to them all you want in an effort to undermine people who are not like you, while promoting a racial agenda. Racism don't care who is or becomes a racist ! "People will forget what you said, and people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel" (Maya Angelou)

    Stephen A. Smith says Tebow is only getting a second chance because he's white and that a black man never would get one . That is so untrue. The league went out of their way to give Kap another chance but he blew it. Look at Ray Lewis and Michael Vick they both got a 2nd chance.

    Stop it teabow is not a serious situation and to talk about the pass that he threw in that playoff team that is in no way a body of work I loved teabow in college the fact is some players never don’t see that same success in the pros. Tim is one of those people and there are many that fit that into that discussion with that being said he was not able to do that when he was in his 20s so what are we talking about?

    Stephen A called Tebow signing for the league minimum with his old college coach he won championships with "white privilege" and compared it to Collin Kaepernick's situation. Well, "according to reports at the time, the Broncos were offering Kaepernick a deal with $7 million in base salary. That year he was slated to earn $11.9 million in base salary from the 49ers.". The narrative about Kaepernick is a false one, he was loving that Nike money a bit too much and chose it over football. Now compare that to Tebow: "On Friday, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported that the Jaguars gave Tebow a one-year, $920K contract with zero guaranteed money and an injury split". Stephen A is a race baiter whose takes about football are about as goofy as his hairline.
