Is someone suing Tim Tebow for fan harassment?

Posted by Will Brinson

With great fame comes great responsibility, and, often, great lawsuits. And great scrutiny by TMZ -- Tim Tebow's the lastest athlete to have his name appear on the Harvey Levin blotter, and it's for a really, really odd reason. Apparently someone is naming Tebow in some sort of ridiculous legal documents, because this person dislikes Tebow and that dislike is causing him to get harassed by people who do like the former Florida Gators legend.

Got all that? Excellent. John D. Gilliand, some random hater in Florida, is claiming that he was kicked out of a gas station and that he is "constantly being harassed by members of [Tebow's] school as well as fans of his school" because he yells "T-Bo sucks."

Of course, TMZ also reports that Gilliand believes President Obama is "conspiring with a local street gang in a diabolical plot" against Gilliand. Or something.

Mike Florio of PFT first noticed the Tebow news -- it had been tagged "DO NOT PUBLISH" by TMZ, presumably because they were a) waiting for the morning traffic rush or b) hoping to land the actual court documents, but the post is live now.

As for the actual "legal" analysis of this, well, it's kind of ridiculous that Tebow is named -- it's not like he can control the fact that Gator fans don't appreciate someone walking around yelling "T-Bo Sucks!" and acting really insane. Plus, good luck finding a judge in Florida who thinks Tebow is an evil person.

Hot Routes 10.18.10 Week 6 boxscore tidbits

Hot Routes

Posted by Andy Benoit

The Seahawks managed 111 rushing against a staunch Bears run defense. (A Bears run defense that was without WLB Lance Briggs, however.) Justin Forsett had 67 yards on 10 carries. Marshawn Lynch gained 44 on 17 carries.

Mike Williams had career-highs in catches (10) and yards (123) for Seattle. Deon Butler, who is essentially replacing Deion Branch, caught all four passes that were thrown to him, including a 22-yard touchdown.

Hours after signing a new two-year contract, Dolphins emerging slot receiver Davone Bess caught five balls for 37 yards and a touchdown against Green Bay.

Greg Jennings wanted his role elevated in Green Bay’s offense. The loss of Jermichael Finley made that easy. On Sunday Jennings had six catches for 133 yards and a touchdown. However, he was only targeted seven times.

Former first-round bust and current No. 2 corner Jason Allen got his third interception of the season for Miami.

Dolphins outside linebackers Cameron Wake and Koa Misi combined for four sacks, four tackles for loss and seven hits on the quarterback.

It appears Ryan Mathews has reclaimed the starting running back job in San Diego. The first-round rookie got 12 carries against the Rams. Fullback Mike Tolbert got just three.

Apparently the return of Marcus McNeill was not world-saving for the Chargers. Chris Long, Larry Grant and James Hall all recorded two sacks against Philip Rivers.

The Patriots lost the turnover battle 2-0 against the Ravens and still won.

Since we reported it a few weeks ago, we have to report it again: Aaron Hernandez set a new Patriots franchise record for longest run by tight end. This time he went for 18 yards. Hernandez holds the previous record of 13 yards.

Derrick Mason led the Ravens with eight catches for 100 yards. T.J. Houshmandzadeh caught every ball thrown his way, which left him with two receptions on the afternoon. Housh did at least finish the game with zero public tantrums.

Haloti Ngata was the most dominant player on the field in Foxboro Sunday. The thundering defensive lineman had seven tackles, two sacks, two tackles for a loss and three hits on the quarterback (all of which we’ll assume Tom Brady argued for a flag on).

Brandon Spikes: 16 tackles. Jerod Mayo: 18 tackles.

The Lions leading rusher at New York was Drew Stanton (three carries, 30 yards). Jahvid Best managed just 16 yards on 12 carries. Best is averaging 3.2 yards per attempt on the season.

The Lions fumbled five times but only lost 2.

Michael Jenkins led the Falcons with five catches for 99 yards in his season debut coming off a shoulder injury.

Asante Samuel, back after missing Week 5 with a concussion, had three pass breakups and a pick against Atlanta.

Mike Wallace put up “Randy Moss circa 1998” type numbers against the Browns: three catches, 90 yards and a touchdown.

Ben Watson had his best game as a Brown, catching six passes for 88 yards and a score.

The Browns’ next two leading receivers were tight end Evan Moore (four catches, 84 yards) and running back Peyton Hillis (six catches, 49 yards). Not uncommon to see non-wide receivers leading the way when it’s an untested rookie quarterback making the throws.

Lawrence Timmons is a rising star in Pittsburgh. The fourth-year pro and second-year starting inside linebacker had 11 tackles, two sacks, two tackles for a loss, two QB hits and a pass breakup Sunday.

The Chiefs gained 228 yards on the ground against the Texans. (Many of those yards came after DeMeco Ryans left the game.)

Matt Cassel had a passer rating of 122.9. Matt Schaub had a rating of 123.9.

Dwayne Bowe: 108 yards and two touchdowns. And, as a CBS graphic kindly pointed out, zero drops.

Owen Daniels had his most productive game of the season, catching five balls for 79 yards. Many of Daniels’ catches were the result of play design.

Tamba Hali had zero tackles and zero sacks. We point it out only because the tireless pass-rusher was far more effective than those numbers indicate.

Tim Tebow had six carries for 23 yards and a touchdown. He also had six “crowd quieters” (as in he had to motion for the crowd to be quiet prior to the snap six different times).

Antonio Cromartie held the NFL’s leading receiver, Brandon Lloyd, to four catches Sunday. Cromartie had three pass breakups and three tackles (which means he overcame his greatest fear on three separate occasions).

The 49ers out-Raidered the Raiders Sunday: 11 penalties for 143 yards.

Jason Campbell’s 10.7 passer rating was the worst rating for a Raiders quarterback since Ken Stabler’s 9.9 against the Bengals in 1975.

The Cowboys held Adrian Peterson to 73 yards on 24 carries.

For the second straight week, Felix Jones got more rushing attempts than Marion Barber. Barber had the better game running, though. He was 5/5 on third/fourth-down-and-one conversions. Jones, however, was better through the air: 10 catches, 61 yards.

Despite using a hurry-up most of the night, the Colts finished the game with four fewer plays (68) than the Redskins (72).

Tim Tebow's first touchdown (video)

Posted by Will Brinson

Welcome to the NFL, Tim Tebow! Sure, the much heralded Broncos rookie hasn't been able to crack the depth chart, and sure, Kyle Orton is putting up unholy numbers and, sure, as Bomani Jones said, Tebow looks about as "slow as Christmas," but, hey, he scored!

In other rookie news, Demaryius Thomas just torched Darrelle Revis, so it's a really good thing that the Jets paid him so much money to stop wide receivers.

Hot Routes 10.14.10: Rudy Does Dallas

Posted by Will Brinson



Got a link for the Hot Routes? Send it to Twitter (@CBSSportsNFL).
  • Jesse Holley, former UNC football player and winner of a Cowboys roster spot vis-a-vis Michael Irvin's reality show could end up getting called up to the actual roster soon. It's a pretty cool story, like a "Rudy Does Dallas" or some such. And Irvin is proud of him, obviously.
  • Earlier this week, Greg Jennings got pretty upset about the fact that he hasn't been seeing the number of catches/targets that you would expect from a guy who's topped 1,000 yards for two straight years. Totally understandable, ESPECIALLY FOR HIS SEETHING FANTASY OWNERS. Ahem, anyway, he apologized, but, seriously, please throw him the ball.

AFC Week 4 Inactives

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

First, the notable actives:

Baltimore RB Ray Rice will play today. As will Raiders WR Louis Murphy (that’s very good new for Oakland). Rookie NT Terrence Cody and DL Paul Kruger will make their 2010 debuts for the Ravens. Also, Denver's Tim Tebow is the No. 2 QB today, while Brady Quinn is No. 3. Jets RB Joe McKnight, who's been a big disappointment so far, is active for the first time. Bills CB Marcus Trufant is active as well. And in some great news for Seattle, LT Russell Okung will make his career debut. 

And now the inactives:

Darrelle Revis, CB, Jets:
He’s getting closer to returning, but against the Bills – where the only real receiving threat is Lee Evans – it’s probably unnecessary to play a Revis that’s still not 100 percent. Antonio Cromartie, who’s had mixed results as the No. 1 shutdown corner, should be OK vs. Evans.

Jonathan Fanene, DE, Bengals: This isn’t as big of a loss, considering Antwan Odom will play. Fanene has been bothered by a hamstring injury.

Cory Redding, DL, Ravens: He suffered a concussion last week, and he didn't pass his baseline tests this week. Therefore, he's inactive. It's unfortunate for Baltimore, considering the Ravens will try to slow down Pittsburgh RB Rashard Mendenhall, the fourth-leading rusher in the league.

Jake Delhomme, QB, Browns: Seneca Wallace will take over the QB spot for Cleveland for the second straight week as Delhomme tries to recover from an ankle injury. Delhomme was listed as questionable, but he was seen limping around the locker room this week. So this isn't a big surprise.

Knowshon Moreno, RB, Broncos: We know this would happen, and therefore, it falls to newly-acquired Laurence Maroney to move the ball. Last week, he struggled, gaining just 24 yards on 12 carries. QB Kyle Orton can't be expected to throw for 400-plus yards every week.

Andre' Goodman, CB, Broncos:
Bothered by a quadriceps injury, Goodman is inactive for the second-straight week. His replacement last week, Perrish Cox, gave up the TD pass to unknown Colts rookie Blair White.

Josh Wilson, CB, Ravens: Cary Williams, who missed the first two games of the season with a suspension, takes the place of Wilson. Special teams might have played a factor in this decision.

John Elway discusses the Broncos

Posted by Will Brinson

You'd be hard pressed to find someone who is more representative of the Denver Broncos than Hall of Famer John Elway -- his two Super Bowl wins for the franchise solidified his legendary career and made Mike Shanahan one of the most respected coaches in the game.

Fortunately, CBSSports.com got a chance to catch up with Elway on Friday to talk about the state of the Broncos, whether or not Kyle Orton represents the future at quarterback for the franchise (and, of course, if he can be a "franchise QB"), how short of a leash Josh McDaniels is on, and much, much more.
