So maybe this has nothing to do with the AFC South. It just brings back memories from when the New York Jets released Tim Tebow and some people insisted that he’d provide an immediate upgrade over Jake Locker.

Sorry, but when it comes to Tebowmania and quarterbacking, I’m not joining the Daniel Bryan “Yes” fan club just yet—or anytime soon.

Locker may have been unspectacular in his preseason opener (7-of-11 for 58 yards) but Tebow was downright awful in his New England Patriots debut: 4-of-12 for 55 yards. He added 31 rushing yards on four carries.
