Former NFL QB and current analyst Boomer Esiason said the New York Jets should release QB Tim Tebow as the idea of him being a backup quarterback is a mistake. "I'm just telling you right now, I would (cut him), and I'll tell you why I would," Esiason said. "It's not in any way, shape or form - I think - benefiting this team. All you have to do is watch him throw the ball. Just watch him."

Geoff Hobson, of Bengals.com, reports former NFL QB Boomer Esiason urged caution to Cincinnati Bengals QB Carson Palmer (knee) to make sure he is ready to return from his injury and used New York Jets QB Chad Pennington (shoulder) as an example. "Chad came back too early. He blows his shoulder out again and now is teetering on the brink of a disastrous career and is trying to resurrect it. I hope and I believe that (Palmer) is going to get good, sound advice. I'm not advising him anything. I'm just telling him to make sure he's ready," said Esiason.

The San Diego Union-Tribune reports former NFL QB Boomer Esiason felt San Diego Chargers head coach Marty Schottenheimer should have been fired following the 2005 season. "I think that team was too good not to make it to the playoffs," said Esiason, who is an analyst for CBS Sports. "Who should be held accountable there? I love Marty, but you know what, bottom line is that team underperformed this year. ... I think somebody needs to be held accountable."

Tom James, of the Tribune Star, reports former NFL QB Boomer Esiason said on Sirius Satellite Radio, in response to the Week 2 incident between Indianapolis Colts defensive line coach John Teerlinck and Jacksonville Jaguars QB Byron Leftwich, that Teerlinck teaches his players to go low to hit the opposing quarterback in the knees. "He used to teach 'dive at the quarterbacks knees.' During a game it was (former Vikings defensive tackle) John Randle diving at my knees. And I went over to Teerlinck and ripped him a new you-know-what. And I know that's exactly what Byron Leftwich was doing because he teaches his guys techniques that really border on trying to get somebody hurt and knock him out of the game." Colts head coach Tony Dungy took exception to Esiason's comments. Dungy also remains confident in Teerlinck's abilities and says Esiason, as well as other television and radio commentators, should stick to analyzing quarterbacks.
