'Tebow Time' vs. Ravens has feel of other Tebow appearances


'Tebow Time' vs. Ravens has feel of other Tebow appearances

Tebow Time arrived early in the fourth quarter of the Eagles' 40-17 rout of the Ravens in Philadelphia on Saturday night, as the Eagles' fourth-string quarterback finally saw the field, much to the delight of the Eagles fans.

Tebow did what he usually does -- run first, look to throw second, and throw inaccurately as often as not.

Tebow ran the Eagles offense for the entire fourth quarter, which amounted to four possessions. The former Heisman Trophy winner from Florida finished 2-for-5 for 13 yards passing and also ran three times for 31 yards, including a 26-yarder right up the middle of the Ravens defense.

Tebow appeared to score on a 4-yard keeper, diving over the pylon and into the left corner of the end zone, but upon review he was ruled out of bounds short of the goal line.


Za'Darius Smith sacked Tebow on his first series in the game, but the sack was negated by a penalty on Ravens linebacker Zach Orr. 

Tebow, who has been out of the NFL for two years, is trying to make the Eagles roster as a backup to Sam Bradford. He is listed behind Mark Sanchez and Matt Barkley on the depth chart, but Eagles coach Chip Kelly likes Tebow and his read-option running ability in short-yardage situations and possibly for two-point conversions.

Kelly and his frantic, fast-pace offense have already caused quite the stir in the NFL. Keeping Tebow on the 53-man roster would certainly add to that.

Fellow dance student of Ravens' Alex Collins fatally shot in Florida school shooting

On Wednesday, February 14, a horrific school shooting claimed the lives of 17 innocent people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. 

The tragic event impacted people far and wide, and hit especially close to home for Ravens running back Alex Collins.

The former Arkansas star was born in Plantation, Fla., a suburb of Fort Lauderdale and went to high school just 15 miles south of Douglas High School. 

In the offseason, Collins took Irish dancing lessons to improve his footwork, and following the act of terror, the Ravens' tailback learned that one of his dance partners had been killed in the mass shooting.

17-year-old Cara Loughran attended The Drake school of Irish Dance with Collins in addition to two other Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students and was fatally shot by the gunman on Wednesday afternoon. 

Collins took to his Twitter account to issue this heartfelt message.


“The school shooting yesterday hit home,” Collins wrote.

“We received confirmation a few hours ago we lost one of the girls, Cara Loughran. Two other girls saw and experienced unspeakable tragedy. My heart goes out to these girls, all their families and their teacher Chrissy.”

Baltimore Ravens to take on Chicago Bears in Hall of Fame game

BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Ravens and Chicago Bears will launch the NFL's 99th season by playing in the annual Hall of Fame game on Aug. 2.

The Ravens' first appearance in the Hall of Fame game, which launches the league's 2018 Enshrinement Week. Former Baltimore linebacker Ray Lewis is among the inductees, along with former Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher.

Lewis, who played 17 seasons with the Ravens, and Urlacher, who played all of his 13 seasons with Chicago, both were elected on the first ballot.

Lewis joins Jonathan Ogden as the only Ravens in the Hall of Fame. Both were selected by Baltimore in the first round of the 1996 draft.
