Tim Tebow and the 20 Athletes You Don’t Want Playing Sports Again
Tim Tebow and 20 Athletes You Hate to See Play Again
Athletes today have been pampered and told they are the best thing to grace this fine earth. Some athletes are 40 years old and still hear that from family, friends and even former teammates. Some athletes believe in their heart of hearts that they can still play the game they love even if they are past their prime by a long-shot or if they are just not good enough to play.
Watching sports is a pleasure and when you get to see the most talented athletes in the world play sports, it's a privilege to say you were alive to see it happen. When you think about it, it's kind of crazy to think that some athletes will one day be considered past their prime. Guys like LeBron James who is the best basketball player, and maybe the best overall athlete, in the world will one day be considered "too old" and "past his prime". It's hard to think a guy like that will become irrelevant one day.
People like Tim Tebow, however, are not the best at what they do. Tebow is known for being a great college quarterback and a great overall guy. He's so well-liked, it's hard to say that you want him to give up on football forever, but if he doesn't change positions, he will never get another realistic chance at starting in the NFL.
While this list is made for the sole purpose to explain who the most annoying athletes to hear about are, the most hated athletes are or the athletes who just need to give it up because they would be making fools of themselves by trying to make a comeback past their prime.
Take a look at the list of Tim Tebow and the 10 athletes you would hate to see try to take another crack at playing again.
18. Byron Leftwich
Remember when Byron Leftwich was considered a solid quarterback with Jacksonville? Yeah, that seems like decades ago. Since leaving the Jaguars in 2006, the quarterback has played in just 14 games and passed for less than 1,500 yards to go along with seven touchdowns and six picks.
8. Tracy McGrady
Tracy McGrady could never succeed in the playoffs throughout his entire career and didn't get out of the first round until last season with the Spurs. Now that he's retired, teams are praying he doesn't come back because signing him is a hex on any title hopes.
3. Tim Tebow
Talk about a sad case at quarterback in which the guy can't throw worth a lick. He might have the worst throwing motion out there and if he doesn't change positions, I don't think any football fan will be mad if he doesn't come back to the sport. Maybe he will become an actor or motivational speaker.
