Tim Tebow already had to deal with current teammate Mark Sanchez throwing a shot at him earlier today, and not another former NFL player is piling on. Jay Feely, who had a pretty good career as a kicker, most recently for the Cardinals, went on “The Jim Rome Show” and absolutely annihilated Tebow’s playing skills and talent. He made sure to say how much he loved the man Tebow is so he doesn’t sound like a hater but what you guys think? Is it fair for a kicker to criticize a quarterback?


With Tim Tebow now at least temporarily ensconced in Philadelphia, everyone’s kind of settling in to see how Chip Kelly and the Eagles handle this and how Tebow deals with playing for a new team.

If he wants to make the team succeed, he better have become a better practice quarterback than he was with the Broncos or Jets. To wit: former Cardinals kicker Jay Feely told Jim Rome on Showtime during this Wednesday’s episode (airs at 9 p.m. ET) Tebow is the “single-worst quarterback I ever saw.”

“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. “He was the single-worst quarterback I ever saw in my career in the NFL.”

Feely then proceeds to tell a story about Tebow warming up and losing … to air.

“I watched him one day … I sat and watched him do routes on air with Ken Whisenhunt as we were playing the Broncos,” Feely said. “And routes on air, there’s no [defensive backs], you know exactly what he’s going to run, there’s no pass rush. He had like 13 incompletions on routes on air. Jim, you and I could go out and do routes on air and we would complete most of our passes.”
