When the news broke the Sam Bradford would have to miss the whole of the 2014 National Football League season, the Saint Louis Rams and their fans immediately knew how much of a struggle their year just became.
And then, when they lost backup quarterback Shaun Hill to an injury in the first half of their pummelling loss against the Minnesota Vikings, the whole organization must have known how much trouble they were in.
All of this completely beggars belief as to how the Rams have not moved into the free agency market to pick up a new play caller. In particular, the one and only Tim Tebow.
Tebow hasn't been on a team since he was at the New England Patriots last summer in the pre-season. He failed to earn a contract there however after not being particularly impressive at quarterback or in a new role as a tight end.
The Rams need a quarterback though and Tebow just happens to be the only free agent one out there that has a playoff win to his name.
We all forget that Tebow led that Broncos side from a terrible 1-4 start to actually making the playoffs at the end of the season. He beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in that wildcard game with a clutch 80-yard touchdown to Demaryius Thomas in overtime to grab the win.
Tim Tebow had an excellent collegiate career at Florida, winning the Heisman as well as two National Championships. For all the hate that he got, Tebow genuinely wasn't that bad a quarterback. He always had a positive touchdown to interception ratio and was decent when given the chance.
St. Louis need Tebow just as much as Tebow needs St. Louis. And we all need to see Tim back in the league.
Also, the man will sell jerseys like a machine.
Tebow now is a SEC Network college football analyst and was recently hired by Good Morning America as we reported yesterday.
