Mark Schlereth, Hannah Storm caught doubting Tim Tebow’s NFL future?

Hannah-Storm-Mark-SchlerethTim Tebow may have absolutely nothing to do with the upcoming Super Bowl between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers, but that never stops the folks at ESPN from talking about him. The World Wide Leader usually has no shame about forcing Tebow into its programming schedule, but this time it was an accidental behind-the-scenes clip that appeared to reveal he was a topic of discussion.

During the Ravens’ media day on Monday morning, cameras accidentally caught Hannah Storm and Mark Schlereth talking about a player that was almost certainly Tebow. What were they doing? Doubting his NFL future, of course.

“He’s like a tight end, H-back,” Schlereth explained as Storm listened attentively. “He’s not a quarterback. I’ll tell you, I talked to a bunch of Broncos coaches and they’re like, ‘I just don’t know if he’s a fluid enough athlete to play tight end.’ They said he doesn’t catch the ball naturally, either.”

At that point, it appeared that somebody informed Storm that her conversation with Schlereth was being shown on the air. With all the story lines developing in New Orleans between Ray Lewis allegedly using a banned substance and the statement Randy Moss made about himself, you would think even Tebow couldn’t work himself into the discussion. Perhaps that will never be true.

    Schlereth is a phoney know nothing has been….not unlike the rest of the talking heads on ESPN….hating on Tebow for no other reason that they are jealous of a guy who says what he believes and belives what he says…..

    as a Tebow supporter, in general, I agree and have never thought Tebow would be a good tight-end or even running back….Tebow is definitely a great running QB and that is how he should be used…he is multi-dimensional but only from the QB position…that said, I think the irony that should not be lost on this story is the willingness for Hannal Storm, a person that only a month ago had her face and body significantly burned in a gas grill fire explosion, to be bashing any person for no reason at all.  You’d think with all of the goodwill she has been afforded and the mere fact that she survived the accident might lend itself to a new outlook on life that pushes aside the petty, unnecessary and disrespectful treatment of others because life is too important to treat other people that way, right?  It is so sad that we have an America where people no longer subscribe to the golden rule of treat others as you’d like to be treated and they have forgotten all of the good pieces of advice we learned from our grandparents and parents like “if you don’t have something good to say about someone, don’t say it at all’….I have to admit that I lost all respect for Hannah Storm after reading this story….you’d just think the recent events in her life would have led her to being more careful about what she says about other people after receiving a great deal of support from so many strangers following her accident…it’s just sad the lack of respect by which most people treat others these days….it is definitely a different world and not for the better!

    Actually Schlereth was a great O line player and one of the reasons Denver won a superbowl, and no offense I think he knows more about football than you do.

    If you’d like to talk about phony has been’s I think Jesus JR aka Tebow is pretty high on that list
