Rocky ready to start now that Tim Tebow has been cut

Lots of Eagles fans are going to be upset with the news that Tim Tebow has been cut, but no one will be more disappointed than Rocky Balboa himself, Sylvester Stallone.

Many Eagles fans are upset at the news that Tim Tebow has been cut, but no one is more disappointed than Rocky Balboa himself, Sylvester Stallone.

"How could you not like Tim Tebow?" Stallone rhetorically asked a TMZ reporter Friday after news that Eagles quarterback Matt Barkley was traded to the Cardinals, which seemed to open up a roster spot for the former Heisman Trophy winner.

Stallone went all in, noting there were only two options for Tebow - first string or g-string. Yes, you read that right.

Hope's not all lost for Eagles fans. The aging action star said he'd suit up himself for the Eagles at quarterback now that the team has cut Tebow.

No word from Tebow if he'd accept a role as the team's g-string.
