"Ground Emerges as Tim Tebow's Favorite Target"

FLORHAM PARK, NJ—With competition heating up at practices, Jets coaches and players confirmed Thursday that the ground was quickly emerging as quarterback Tim Tebow’s favorite target and had already received 90 percent of the third-year player’s passes during the first three weeks of training camp.

Despite having a variety of options in wide receivers Santonio Holmes and Stephen Hill, tight end Dustin Keller, and even converted cornerback Antonio Cromartie, Tebow’s rapport with the ground has been evident as the quarterback has repeatedly thrown in the direction of the grassy surface.

“As we get into camp, more and more often Tim has been throwing to the ground,” center Nick Mangold said. “During plays, he just has this instinct for finding the ground every time. It’s becoming apparent to everyone on the team that the ground is Tim’s go-to target.”

“He just loves throwing it right to the ground,” Mangold added. “It doesn’t matter if the defense comes out in man coverage or an overload blitz. Tebow seems to know exactly where the ground will be and hits the wide-open turf every time.”

4. OK, it's the Onion

I know Tebow's a crappy quarterback, but I didn't think he could be that bad.

If I listened to Rush Windbag, Obama still wouldn't be as bad he makes him out to be, either.

8. Well, the ground is reliable, usually open and often is able to elude defenders.

It also remains humble and doesn't seek the spotlight.

It's the anti-Chad Johnson.
