The last thing we've heard from Tim Tebow involves him talking about college football on television. He's probably done in the NFL. 

Eagles running back LeSean McCoy, who was harassed in an airport by TMZ, certainly thinks so. McCoy was asked who's the best NFL player not currently on a team. And while he was thinking, the cameraman threw out "Tim Tebow" as a possibility.

Shady then set it all on fire.

"Tim Tebow?" McCoy said. "My son is two. I'll take my son over Tim Tebow."

He's really just saying what we're all thinking. But Shady seems image-conscious enough that it's kind of surprising for him to flat-out shred another "NFL player" on a video that's going to blatantly go viral. 

Is it possible he thought this dude was just some fan kicking it at the airport? Maybe it was some dude just kicking it at the airport and he sold the tape to TMZ.

Whatever. Don't talk to strangers with cameras if you don't want what you say going public. And what a way for his two-year old son, who is better at quarterback than Tim Tebow, to find out Shady doesn't even want him playing football. 

"I really don't want him to play," McCoy said. "It's his decision."
