When no one out there wants Tim Tebow ...

and the Steelers can get him for a vet minimum....

he will be behind Ben to light a fire under his arse.

In light of the Rainey and T'amu situations wouldn't a good Cathelic boy like Tim be loved by the Rooney family?

He really isn't. You can't create a new set of plays for a backup and Tebow would need a specifically designed offense to have any success. Now if he wanted to be the #2 TE, I'm all for it.

How would it light a fire under Ben's ass? It didn't even do that to Sanchez, and Sanchez actually had a lot to worry about. Ben has won 2 SB's and has made some of the biggest plays in Steelers history, Tebow behind him wouldn't change anything.

I don't think Tebow offers us anything. He's not that good of a passer and we already have a FB.

Tebow was not good enough to break into a lineup as starter with a team that had Sanchez and Greg McElroy. I don't like Ryan but he is not stupid. He knows Tebow is not, and never will be, anything more than a very poor, gimmicky QB. They just used him for the press coverage and that is all he is good for.

He's a great football player. I'd love to have him on our team.

Not to call you out specifically, DEZ, but what exactly is it that everyone thinks he is so good at? I always hear "he isn't a good QB, but a good football player"... what exactly does that mean?

We have only seen him play QB. And his thundering 7-4 stretch was with a 43% completion percentage (lowest of any starting QB in NFL history) against several 8-8 teams, a 3-13 team (who blew Tebow's Broncos out 43-13), and a spattering of 6-10 teams.

Granted, he did whoop us in that playoff game-- but then again, look at what he did.

Denver ran the same, exact play, 3 times against us, and scored all 3 times. That has more to do with Dick Lebeau's #1 cocky-azz defense and poorly-planned scheme getting burned, than Tebow entering the upper echelon of NFL QBs.

That deep post to Demarius Thomas is probably the only play Tebow knew how to run, so they probably practiceed that one play about 20 times each day in practice. I mean, the guy scored a 870 on his SAT....he basically managed to spell his own name right and that was about it.

As far as I know, we have never seen him play at any of the other positions on the field, other than punt protector, and he even stunk at that.

He went to a personal trainer this summer to work on his throwing mechanics, and the result was him underthrowing an uncovered receiver in the endzone and throwing a sloppy high ball to his TE, which landed the poor guy on IR this year.

Tebow is a joke and nothing more than a shameless self-advertiser. His followers would have you think the guy can throw TDs, while executing the infamous Tebow kneel, chewing gum, and fingering his girlfriend at the same time. In reality-- he brings with him a freak show that only desperate teams seeking media attention will try for. He does not have much to contribute on the field.

Whomever said putting him in at backup QB would 'push Ben' to play harder is lost. He did not even "push" Sanchize to up his game-- what is he going to do to a 2-time SB winning QB?

That said, even not being religious myself, I would not object to the Rooneys brining in someone with character to offset the Ta'amu and Rainey stupidity. We don't need an altar-boy like Timmy, but some quiet, hard-working, descent human beings like Polamalu, Miller, or the late Chris Hoke/Charlie Batch.

Exactly. As an Atheist I can appreciate the Steelers players like Troy keeping their faith where it's supposed to be: personal. Tebow is nothing more than a televangelist.

Tebow is probably going to the Cardinals, or someplace where he has a good shot at a starting QB position. It looks like the Rooneys will have to look for a good Catholic boy elsewhere.

Tebow isn't going anywhere. He certainly isn't going to a place with a new coach who doesn't have the stature to sit Tebow given his lack of ability. Not with his unearned/religious based popularity.

Tebow requires his own offense, like we seen in Denver. The Cardinals may be a good choice for him, but it's not going to happen. A team with a good O line and really good defense might be successful with Tebow. it sounds stupid, and yes eventually teams would figure it out, but his team would have time to perfect it also because it wouldn't be a one year experiment. That said, none of that fits with us. Yes he's a good "athlete", but he doesn't really excel at any position and would only be a backup TE or FB.

He's versatile, highly competitive, has an excellent work ethic, and physically athletically able to play backup at multiple positions.


For one roster spot you can have a backup or 3rd string QB, a backup TE, an h-back, a wildcat or other specialty package specialist, and a special teams player if need be.

I would take Tebow over David Paulson or Baron Batch any day.

Exactly. Whenever they make a big fuss out of how Christian Tebow is and how good a person he is-- it must be a real slap in the face of all the other 97% of the players who identify themselves as Christians and don't get into trouble as well.

Tim Tebow faces uncertain NFL feature

Associated Press
Posted: Jan 16, 2013 05:54 PM


NEW YORK From nearly unstoppable to nearly invisible.

Tim Tebow was two wins from the Super Bowl a year ago. Now, he's pretty much a player without a team likely to be released by the New York Jets after one frustrating season and his hometown team in Jacksonville already pulling in the welcome mat.

Even Tebow doesn't know how this will unfold. A backup role on another NFL team? A position change? The Canadian Football League?

"I don't know what my future holds, but I know who holds my future," the devout Christian said in a recent interview with Fox Business Network, his only public comments since his strange Jets season ended.

"And, in that," he added, "there is a lot of peace and a lot of comfort."

Tebow barely played for the Jets last season. "An absolute mess," is the way recently retired special teams coordinator Mike Westhoff described it. Tebow has two years left on his contract, but New York is expected to trade or release him in the next few weeks. So far, destination unknown.

"I can't imagine a scenario in which he'll be a Jacksonville Jaguar," new general manager David Caldwell declared last week. "Even if he's released."

While there's an outside chance Tebow could remain a New Yorker, depending on the whims of the still -to-be-hired GM, it appears highly unlikely.

So, that's two NFL teams down the only ones, at that, who showed any interest last offseason when Denver shopped him and the 25-year-old Tebow's options appear to be dwindling.

"Tim Tebow is an extremely popular individual or, he was," said former Cowboys executive Gil Brandt, now an analyst for NFL.com. "I think his popularity has waned significantly the last three or four months."

The buzz these days belongs to young quarterbacks such as Washington's Robert Griffin III, Seattle's Russell Wilson, Indianapolis' Andrew Luck and San Francisco's Colin Kaepernick. It seems so long ago now that Tebowing his signature dropping to a knee for a prayerful pose was all the rage.

But even Tebow never Tebowed during the regular season for the Jets. Not once. Quite a fall for a Heisman Trophy winner and two-time national champion with the University of Florida, and whose No. 15 Broncos jersey ranked second in national sales to Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers in 2011.

"I think it's fair to say," Tebow acknowledged last month, "that I'm a little disappointed."

Tebow went from being considered a key part of Rex Ryan's offense to almost non-existent. The numbers said it all: a mere 102 yards rushing and 6-of-8 passing for 39
yards. And, the most damning stat of all: zero touchdowns.

"I would've liked to see him get a chance," defensive end Mike DeVito said.

It didn't even come when Mark Sanchez struggled so badly that he was benched for the first time in his career. Instead of going with Tebow, the No. 2 quarterback on the depth chart, Ryan went with third-stringer Greg McElroy.

Acquiring Tebow ultimately led to GM Mike Tannenbaum and offensive coordinator Tony Sparano losing their jobs. And, it clouded Tebow's prospects in the NFL. No matter what, though, he insists he's a quarterback.

"I just don't think he will ever be a quarterback in the NFL," Brandt said. "I think he's really smart, but I don't think he has the mental quickness at the position. The second thing is, he just is not accurate."

Tebow, reportedly working out in Arizona with a personal trainer, could still land somewhere in the league as a project for an offensive coordinator willing to learn from the Jets' mistakes.

"He's still worth a try and I think somebody will sign him, but it'll be under the condition that it will be as something other than as a quarterback," said Brandt, who thinks Tebow will stay on offense. "If Al Davis were still here, he'd take him in a second and try to turn him into a tight end for the Raiders."

Or, Tebow could simply swallow his pride, head to Canada and become a huge star there with the CFL's wide-open fields. And then, who knows? Maybe he would come back to the United States the same route Warren Moon, Doug Flutie and Jeff Garcia took to NFL stardom.

"There's no shame at all in going to the CFL," said Eric Crouch, the former Nebraska Heisman Trophy quarterback who played in both the NFL and CFL. "They'd take him right now and he'd get a lot of tape, and if he's there two years, he'd have 50 games under his belt reading defenses and coverages. Let the NFL scouts make their decisions then.

"And, hey, he might have so much fun there actually playing, he might not want to ever come back."

Also a FB? That's laughable, again what has he done to show he can do this

He fucked up as a punt protector this year, he's not a bad guy, he's just obscenely overrated. Why would you bring a circus clown to town just to have him line up at FB/TE two positions he's never played in the NFL? Don't get it

Exactly what I was asking earlier. I think the "he's not a good QB, but a good athlete" thing just sounds good, so it caught on.

He sucked as a QB, he sucked as a punt protector, and unless they gave him some bigger pads, there is no such thing as a QB-FB hybrid either. The only reason to bring Tebow in is for the media draw. There is no reason to believe that he would be good at any of teh other positions on the field. he may be an all-pro TE in the rough-- but he has not shown anything to suggest it at all.

mikegrimey
01-18-2013, 05:24 AM
^ I completely agree, it seems like people just started saying he could play TE/FB and kept saying it without any reason. You're right that the media circus has been about all Tebow has been good for. Would we sign Vonte Leach or Gronkowski if they were going to result in a 24/7 media circus, raise questions about our allegiance to our franchise QB or undermine our "team" by being the undeserved center of attention at all times?

I would like to say no, and those 2 can actually play at a high level at those positions, as far as we know Tebow can't even play at a mediocre level.
