Re: NFL 2013 Off-Season Discussion

I was excited about Tebow + Manning thing and was slightly bummed when they sent Tebow packing, but this is what I came up with after thinking on it a bit..... As much as anything, Tebow was traded away because he would have been a terrible backup for Manning. Even if they worked on him and improved his throwing abilities, what he does is too far different from what Manning does. Basically, they would have needed a Manning gameplan and a contingency If-Manning-Is-Broke gameplan for Tebow. Denver needed a backup who could run a similar offense to Manning. A good place for Tebow to land and learn is a team that already has a gameplan setup for a mobile QB. That way, if he's pushed into action, they can keep the basis for their offense in place.

That and people are just assuming that Peyton is a good instructor or has any interest to do so. Unless we are just saying that Tebow could learn through osmosis which could be somewhat true I just don't think Tebow would fit in anyway on any team as a capable backup given the options most teams have.

Yeah, I was implying Tebow could learn by osmosis, as well as Manning could teach. But Tebow would have been a distraction.

Pretty much dead on. The distraction factor is certainly something that a team has to consider though. Not many starters are going to want to be overshadowed by their backup.

This would apply to every team in the league. It is like saying that Tebow is not NFL quarterback material which is true and something many people knew before he even joined the league.

If Tebow wants to play quarteback professionally, he needs to get his ass to the CFL.

Re: NFL 2013 Off-Season Discussion

If Tebow was smart and wanted to be part of the Jets. He would of just switched into a hybrid fb/hb. That would allowed him to touch the ball and even Tomlison had some touchdowns thrown as a rb. He just has some crazy idea he can play qb, he is so unqualified for the postion it's not even funny as far as profesional football goes.

He should take a page out of Denard Robinson's book. He definitely wanted to be a quarterback, but he was just happy to be drafted at all. Despite going to the combine as a wide receiver, he was drafted as a running back.

Denard Robinson, on being drafted:

The offseason is always great in the sense that some players have too much time on their hands and can't help but get themselves into trouble.

Titus Young has been arrested 3 times in a week and is facing 8 charges, 3 of them felonies.

LeSean McCoy had his bodyguard waterboard a chick on a party bus.

Re: NFL 2013 Off-Season Discussion

It was also on Ch7 news earlier (admittedly the same source). Sounds like more than a rumor this time, though a tryout doesn't mean a lot.

If he were in shape & could be halfway decent, what other backups are there? The Bears have been great at having really bad backup QB's over the years.

Michael Vick doesn't like splitting reps with Nick Foles

Then cry me a fucking river. Maybe if you weren't a turnover-prone headcase who has been completely self-destructive the past two years during any blitz the past two years you wouldn't find yourself in a Quarterback competition. But, since you are, you have to share reps in practice.

So we're going to suffer through another season of Tebow watching.

If the Pats are planning to convert him to a tight end or something fine, but if he's at QB, what are the Pats thinking?

Re: NFL 2013 Off-Season Discussion

I can think of far worse places for Tebow to land. There will be zero QB controversy and no pressure on Tebow to do anything but sit back and learn. And honestly, if he can't learn how to be consistent under Brady and Belichick, then there really is no hope for him. While I do think he would have been a better backup in a location like SanFran, Washington, or Seattle, I do think that he has a good opportunity in New England.
