Best New Player for Lions To Pick Up

Not Tebow

comment

Hey, Tim, after the wildcard round game in the playoffs against Pittsburgh, when you threw that game-winning touchdown seconds into overtime, all of America gave a collective sigh of shock and surprise, an existential moment of "WTF?!" But face it, you'd simply be another lucky quarterback if it weren't for your public beliefs and theatrics. And now New York City will likely tear you apart. Realize you're walking into a city that is nearly the population of the entire state of Michigan in a space smaller than Detroit's city limits. Right off the bat, half of these people automatically hate you (Giants and Jets fans get along about as well as Wolverine and Spartan fans in the middle of October). And the other half? The Jets fans? Well, they hate you too. It's a shame the Jets and Lions don't play this year, Timmy. It would be fantastic to see MT's main man Justin, Calvin, and the rest of the boys stomp you again.
