My heart goes out to him. He's a good, clean kid, has enormous faith in God which is a wonderful example for ALL to follow and yet still can't get a break.

Maybe it's just not meant to be for him in the NFL. God bless ya Tim and I hope something works out for you. Don't lose your faith; God is in control and for those faithful to Him, big things are in store.

as a fellow Christian I agree Tebow is a great model of faith. But don't act like he hasn't been given a fair chance. God has smiled favorably upon him. He just so happens to completely suck as an NFL quarterback.

Haha! I like Tebow. I love his faith in Christ and how he wears his religion on his sleeve. I think it could have been great for the NFL Andrew did for him to find success even though I don't like any of the teams he has ever played for.

with that being said I hated watching him play the game of football especially at the quarterback position. He completely sucks.he is more brutal to watch that Mark Sanchez or any quarterback recently drafted by the Cleveland Browns. If I can throw up booger into my sisters hair from across the room I doubt he could even wipe one on the wall.

ti bow simply cannot throw. He can't even throw a fit about supposedly never catching a break. but he is smart enough not to take his skills up to Canada to prove to the rest of the world that he sucks just as bad. That would ruin the legacy he is created for himself alreadyhe is putting his capability to cash in on that legacy ahead of pride and for that I admire him.

There's probably a place for him in this league, but it's not at quarterback. I just don't think he has the skills to play the position. If he doesn't make a team because he's not a good enough quarterback, that's on him. He's the one that isn't willing to play other positions. I wish the guy well, and admire his character, his belief in himself, and being a great person. The only problem with all of that, is that NFL teams aren't looking for a son-in-law for their daughter, they're looking for a good football player that can help a team. By insisting on playing a position he doesn't play well, he can't help a team. If he can't help a team, he can't make a roster.

Wrong. his completion percentage suggests that he is below average. being dumped by three teams in 18 months suggests that he sucks. actually watching him play suggest that he is horrible.

yeah like cleaning the bathrooms at Heinz Field except when he went to throw the trash he would probably miss the dumpster.

Terry Bradshaw boasts a career completion percentage of what, 51%? Tim Tebow's career completion percentage isn't far off of that, and he certainly hasn't played nearly as long as Bradshaw or Dan Fouts (both in the HOF with sub-par Comp Percentages). I'm not suggesting that he's better than it looks, because really, I believe I could out throw him. :chuckle:

Just saying that completion percentages, interceptions and all that yada yada isn't that important. It's the wins that matter, and I recall Tebow was on the winning side of things a few times back in Denver, and I recall Terry Bradshaw having thrown to the wrong jerseys almost as much as the right ones and STILL winning some Super Bowls. Tebow's not a good passer, but he's a good athlete. I think he's an average QB who worked some magic here and there with the help of his team mates. I also think he'll be looking for a team for a long time if he believes he's a passing QB. He's a wildcat QB that'll likely never start in not just the NFL, but any league in general.

Tim Tebow clears waivers, NFL future in doubt


Former Florida Gators quarterback Tebow waves as he stands on the sidelines before the Gators play against the Louisville Cardinals in the 2013 Allstate Sugar Bowl NCAA football game in New Orleans

Tim Tebow’s NFL career may be over, as every team had a chance to claim him today, and every team passed.

Tebow, who was waived by the Patriots on Saturday, officially cleared waivers on Sunday. That means all 31 other teams could have taken his minimum-salary contract but decided he wasn’t worth it.

Realistically, that also means there’s a very good chance that his NFL career is over. The Patriots were the only team that had any interest in Tebow after the Jets cut him, and he didn’t play well for the Patriots when he got his chance in the preseason. It’s hard to see what would change to make some team interested in Tebow in the future.

Of course, Tebow does have some things going for him: He’s only 26 years old, he’s known as a hard worker, and he’s a popular player who would sell tickets. But Tebow’s presence can also become a major distraction, and that may cause some teams to shy away.

Tebow became a big star as a Heisman Trophy winner who led Florida to a national championship, and he became an even bigger star leading the Broncos to the playoffs. But he never became a fundamentally sound quarterback. As a result, he may never again be an NFL quarterback.

True, all QBs will throw a lame duck pass every once in a while (let's say: 1% of the time).

What makes you think he could be an effective TE or RB in the league?

I ask because I always hear this, but have never seen one shred of evidence that Tebow would make a good TE or RB. To my knowledge, he's never once even lined up as a TE or RB, and he has a reputation for having a hard time working with big playbooks and reading defenses. Why do you think he'd have the vision to be able to make the right kind of decision a RB has to make and why do you think he'd be a good route runner/pass catch as a TE? As for blocking, we all saw how he did as punt protector for the Jets last year...

Also don't know what team is desperate enough at TE/RB to try out a QB who's never once played the position before.

IowaSteeler927
09-07-2013, 08:49 AM
I'm not saying he would be a guarantee at TE or RB but I definitely think he would be much better suited to those positions versus Quarterback. He's got the right build and he's got the work ethic to learn so if I were a coach I wouldn't mind trying him out at other positions especially considering that his going rate is rather cheap right now. Problem is Tebow's got it in his head that he can be a Quarterback in the NFL.

If teams only drafted or picked up players in FA that were guaranteed to succeed there wouldn't be enough players to field a team.

You see basketball players convert to TE and receiver.

A fart was just released by my ass.

Thanks for clarifying....I thought you were talking there for a second. :chuckle:

Admire his persistence but would never take him as a quarterback.

I'd love to see him as a convert though.

Great athelete, great character.

A slasher? lol....

If teams only drafted or picked up players in FA that were guaranteed to succeed there wouldn't be enough players to field a team.

You see basketball players convert to TE and receiver.

6th & 7th round and UDFA's are also long shot prospects.

He is a very hardworking, athletic and competitive player and I feel he has as good or better shot than the aforementioned.

....and the price would be right.

I'm not saying it's impossible for a player to transition from one position to another,w hat i'm saying is there's no evidence that Tebow can make that transformation, people just state that he could be a good TE/RB without actually having any evidence.

As for taking risks, how many teams would take risks on a UDFA or late round pick if they knew they would bring a media circus with them...not every vet minimum signing has had a billboard in their honor.

I can't disagree with you there.

As much as I like Tebow if I were a coach I would really have to think through the media side of it before pulling the trigger.

Yea, the only teams that could realistically take him on would have to:

A. Have a solidified starting QB who's status wouldn't be questioned ever
B. Be thin at an undetermined position they think Tebow would be good at and be willing to be patient teaching him
C. Have strong lockeroom leadership to prevent the kind of division a controversial player like that can produce, there was a lot of talk on the Broncos about certain players disliking him and I can't imagine the depth on the Jets were cool w/ their punt protector making so many headlines etc.
D. Have a coaching staff that doesn't mind answering a dozen questions about the status of what would be a role player

The one squad I thought could do all that, if I had to pick, would have been the Patriots, and they cut him.

TT's best shot was that Jacksonville job the Jets screwed him out of. Small market team desperate to get fans in the seats. But, the new coach wouldn't have it. I can't imagine TT could be worse than Gabbert. I had to suffer it through it since they played KC and boy that stadium was *maybe* 50% full.

I actually agree.

I would consider it just like drafting any late round athletic project.
