Tim Tebow gets blamed for NFL receiver's failed career

Tim Tebow has not played a regular season game in the NFL since 2012 during his terrible lone season with the New York Jets, but nonetheless he is still getting the blame for failed careers in the NFL.

The former Denver quarterback hasn't started an NFL game since the Broncos AFC Divisional Round loss to the New England Patriots at the end of the 2011 NFL season, but despite this, an NFL agent of an unwanted receiver has still ripped into Tim Tebow this week.

Scapegoat again

The reason? Well it seems the agent of former New York Jets and now free agent wide receiver Stephen Hill is furious with his player's current situation, and as a result he went on a tirade against Hill's former quarterbacks.

It must be pretty hard for Tebow, he is not even playing in the NFL himself but he is still the ultimate scapegoat when it comes to the failings of others.

Blame for receiver failings

After two average seasons with the Jets, Gang Green have moved on from Hill, but not without his agent saying his piece.

"I'm disappointed in (GM John) Idzik and (coach) Rex (Ryan) with the way the whole thing went down there,'' CBS reported. "Two years in that kind of situation is disheartening. He didn't have a chance that first year with that whole Tim Tebow-Mark Sanchez fiasco."

But it wasn't just Tim Tebow that agent Alan Herman had eyes for when he gave the whole Jets front office a dressing down this weekend. That's right, current Jets' starting QB Geno Smith got his fair share of the brunt of things as well.

"In his [Hill's] second year, Geno Smith was learning how to play quarterback. So they never threw the ball deep because they wanted to simplify things for Geno."
