Honestly Tebow has had the worst luck of any QB I have seen, 3 diff offenses in 3 years, the lockout his first year. He needed to sit behind an established starter and work in his mechanics/game the move up from there. Denver should have kept him to learn under Manning, would have been best for him. But Elway couldnt allow anyone bigger than him stay too long (Manning is different cause Elway recruited him so he had his hand in that). Just MHO.

I didn't know Tebow played the fullback position. That's news to me. Tebow comes with a big price tag for a back up QB. You're right, I don't think that will happen. Plus, he'll want to go somewhere that he has a chance to start.

I think Kordell Stewart had more upside than Vick and Kordell sucked big time.
I was with you up until the Kordell comment. Vick is bad, real bad, but not that bad.

I like Tebow as a person but he's not a QB. In Denver he did enough to get by in an offense that was designed specifically around him. He might be able to run around and make plays like Ben but his throwing mechanics are poor, his footwork is poor, and his accuracy is questionable. There's a reason the Jets haven't handed him the reigns and are instead going with McElroy. To make matters worse Tebow brings "Tebowmania" with him wherever he goes. He's a distraction even if he doesn't mean to be because the "Tebowmaniacs" will always be there calling for him to get playing time whenever something doesn't go our way.

If Tebow seriously wants to play he needs to open himself up to the idea of playing TE, FB, or HB in the NFL. Those are the positions to me that fit his frame. Not sure how his hands are but if he could catch the ball he might be a good TE or FB that can sometimes slip out of the backfield and catch a pass here and there much like Will Johnson.

Has anyone watched tebow play, and you want him. Not to mention his cult of god loving nut jobs would be calling for Benz benching from day 1 so their savior could Play. The last person I want on this team is tebow, that's behind Vick and I hate Vick
