Is this what all the fuss is about?
The Eagles put backup quarterback Tim Tebow in the game twice Saturday against the Green Bay Packers in the first quarter, twice trying to convert a two-point conversion following a touchdown.
And twice, he failed.
Tebow’s first attempt came after a Sam Bradford touchdown pass to Darren Sproles. Lined up in the shot gun, Tebow ran the ball right up the middle, but the blocking was poor and he was stopped just short of the goal line.
On his second attempt, Tebow dropped back and threw an incomplete pass that was nearly picked off.
If this is the role coach Chip Kelly envisioned for the candy-armed QB, why even have him on the team?
