Chris Broussard, Rob Parker Argue Over Tim Tebow & White Privilege

“Tebow hasn’t played in the NFL since 2012 with the New York Jets.”

Tim Tebow did his best to dominate the news cycle last Thursday with what ultimately turned into the second biggest NFL story of the day. Aaron Rodgers’ tiff with the Green Bay Packers got all the headlines, but the Jacksonville Jaguars confirmed they have tried out Tebow at tight end.

The 33-year old getting another shot in the league drew Rob Parker’s ire on The Odd Couple with Chris Broussard and Rob Parker.

“I think it’s the ultimate ‘White Privilege.’ This guy has failed in the NFL – he can’t play,” Parker said on the show. “I know he played for Urban Meyer in college, I get that, but so have a lot of other people. Where is Chris Leak’s tryout at tight end?? This is typical.”

Tebow hasn’t played in the NFL since 2012 with the New York Jets. He appeared in 12 games that season, making two starts at QB. There is a connection with Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer. Tebow played at Florida under Meyer from 2006 through 2009, winning the Heisman Trophy in 2007.

“Why do people keep giving this guy chances when he doesn’t deserve it?? Josh Gordon got tryouts because he can play,” Parker said. “Guys bend over backwards for guys who can play. Tim Tebow couldn’t make a 15-yard pass consistently… Tim Tebow is a FAILURE on the pro level, Tim Tebow is a LOSER.”

Tebow pursued baseball with the Mets organization from 2016-19. He reached the Triple-A level but never got called up to The Show. The journey on the diamond ended this February when he retired from baseball.

Parker’s co-host wasn’t on board with the take.“STOP IT, this takes away from when there’s REAL racism. STOP IT, this is FOOLISHNESS. There is real ‘White Privilege’ and this isn’t it,” Broussard said. “I actually think the ultimate form of white privilege is when I’m watching the NFL Draft, and they go to the War Room, and I see eight or nine white guys in there and one brother, Maybe! That’s ‘White Privilege.'”

“It makes him astronomically more likeable,” Taylor said.

On Monday, the Pardon My Take podcast dropped their latest episode which featured an interview with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Big Cat, one of the show’s co-hosts, is a Chicago Bears fan and has spent a lot of time not liking Rodgers publicly.

Colin Cowherd saw one of the many clips that the show shared and brought up how much he thought that Rodgers took ribbing from Big Cat and the podcast in stride. That’s when Joy Taylor offered that the interview could help Rodgers in the long run.

“It makes him astronomically more likeable,” Taylor said. “When you can show that you don’t take yourself that seriously, all of the animosity that people have towards you just kind of starts to wither away.”

She added that the disarming quality helps if people don’t perceive Rodgers as thinking he has all the answers.

“When people feel like they are projecting ‘I know more than you’ and ‘I’ve got it all figured out’ energy, people are like: ‘you got to be the smartest guy on the room all time time? You’re not.’

This is so likeable,” Taylor said. “It’s really funny.”

Cowherd agreed and even said he is probably going to go listen to it after the show.

“Aaron is genuinely laughing as they make fun of him and that is an incredibly endearing quality.”

Dennis Eckersley

On Monday, Dennis Eckersley announced that he was going to retire from the Boston Red Sox television booth at the end of this season. The current NESN analyst is leaving after twenty years on the air with the team.

The news broke during Toucher and Rich on 98.5 the Sports Hub and it gave show co-host Rich Shertenlieb a chance to mention the news and praise the departing personality.

“When Eckersley got in there (the booth),” Shertenlieb started, “he was great. It made all of them better when Dennis Eckersley was around. It’s going to be a huge loss.”

The show spent the rest of the segment talking about what Eckersley offered that made him so unique. That’s when Matt McCarthy, fill-in for Fred Toucher, said that Eckersley was exactly what you wanted in an analyst.

“You want someone that’s going to give you an opinion,” McCarthy said. “Eck gave you an opinion. He’ll be missed.”

McCarthy also pointed out that this is the latest major shakeup that has happened to the television broadcast in recent years.

“There’s no doubt this is a blow,” McCarthy added. “This is a tremendous loss to that Red Sox broadcast to which has taken a lot of hits over the years with the loss of Jerry Remy, the decision to move on from Don Orsillo and now Dennis Eckersley retiring… they are going to have to find an entertainer in there.
