Playing the Field: What’s next for Tim Tebow? Anyone know?

Tebow is looking for a new job and the NFL might not be an option. Can he play soccer or wear lingerie?

We’re not sure why we’re about to give a quarterback who lacks any real quarterbacking skill any more ink, but, alas, ESPN has ruined us.

Tim Tebow will most likely not be a New York Jet next season. Rex Ryan is returning as head coach and, after inserting his third-stringer over Tebow when Mark Sanchez failed miserably, it doesn’t appear as if Tiny Tim inspires much confidence there.

The general consensus is that Tebow would head to Jacksonville, a place not far from Tebow’s college campus, but that rumor is being silenced already.

“I can’t imagine a scenario where he would be a Jacksonville Jaguar, even if he’s released,” Jaguars GM David Caldwell said Thursday.

Some options for Tebow then …

» Texas indoor soccer: From what we gathered, it’s a recreational league that plays out of a place called American Indoor Soccer in Carrollton, Texas. Why would Tebow fit in? He could join Tony Romo’s squad, guaranteed he can teach Tebow a thing or two about winning in the NFL. Wait a minute …

» Legends Football League: Formerly known as the Lingerie Football League, the league is trying to re-brand itself in an effort to stop being “viewed as a gimmick.” Well, well, now. That last part might be written on Tebow’s epitaph.

» Stars in Danger: We have to claim a little ignorance here since we didn’t watch it. However, Fox’s new reality show makes washed-up athletes perform Olympic-style dives against each other. Tebow isn’t technically washed up yet, but you get the idea.

Only in the digital age

In case you missed Wednesday night’s Lakers-Spurs game — yes, the Lakers lost again — you missed the pinnacle of the digital age. The cameras panned to Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich and referee Bill Kennedy right before what he thought was a scheduled TV timeout. It wasn’t. ESPN changed the schedule.

What we get is Kennedy telling the coaches D’Antoni didn’t have any more 20-minute timeouts, so he instructed the men to stall for commercial time.

Which got us thinking about what the trio actually said when the station went to commercial. Popovich, never afraid to speak his mind — remember, he once told Tony Parker to shut the f–k up and often rips sideline reporters for asking dumb questions — must have had kind words for Kennedy.

For example, this exchange:

Popovich: “I want some nasty?”
Kennedy: “That’s highly inappropriate.”
Popovich: “I was talking to Mike.”
D’Antoni: “Sorry, Pop, I don’t know defense.”
Popovich: “That’s OK. Follow my lead.”

Or something like that.
