But given the new rules of having a 46th roster spot - would there be any value in trading a 6th round pick or even picking him up if he is ever cut by Denver to play TE or FB (NOT QB, NOT EVER) .... hmmm?.....
Absolutely - the Steelers then can put Tebow at QB and trade Roethlisberger as part of a package with Timmons, Woodley, and Wallace to obtain Burress in a trade with the Jets

That trade also will free up cap space to permit signing up Plax to a long term deaL

You guys must be drinking from the Merril Hoge Koolaid. I realize many people are turned off by Tebow by the attention he attracts, but the dude is a winner. I'm a big Florida fan and I watched every game the kid played at Florida. He's a QB and nothing else. He tore up the SEC, which while I know it isn't the NFL, it's the strongest and fastest conference in college. He has unmatched leadership and is a huge motivator for teammates. You also seem to forget that he threw for over 300 yards in 2 of the 4 games he started last season. He's only been in the league a year. Give him time and he can become a solid QB. You can now flame me that I have that out of my system.

He's absolutely better than Dixon.

At least Tebow knows he can't throw and isn't scared of being stereotyped into using his strengths.

I actually like probably 75 percent of the Steelers team. I'm the only one who consistently praises guys like Brown and Sylvester, who have the potential to be very special players. Ben, Wallace, Troy, Harrison and Timmons are among the best in the league at their positions and I've always defended them. Never said anything wrong about the guys on our D-Line either other than Ziggy Hood, who I thought was a pretty questionable pick in the fact that he's more of a 4-3 DT. Loved the Heyward pick. Love Pouncey. Indifferent about Woodley. I think he's a good player but a bit overrated especially comparing him to Timmons (or I guess you could say Timmons is underrated).

When it comes to guys like Ward and Farrior, it's not like I don't like them. They are all-time great Steelers...but their time in the 'burgh should be over or at least close to over. I really hate them standing in front of Brown and Sylvester when I think the younger guys at this point would be better options.

When it comes to Dixon and Gay, there's really nothing positive to say about them. I'm bewildered why you like these bums. I also bashed Urbik, Frank Summers, and Shipley every chance I got because I knew they sucked. Same goes for Randle El. Horrible resigning.

In any future discussions about these two, this should be the ending^^^. Bad results are bad results.

Default Re: Tebow?

I'll put it this way - if I were running the Broncos I would have taken a 3rd round pick for Orton as a victory. The guy is a game manager at best. A 10-6 season would be monumental for them at this point.

John Elway = Michael Jordan in Front Office decision making or aka absolutely horrible in Front Office decision making

When you hire an uninspired John Fox from CAROLINA you aren't going to get a guy that will be able to coach up a raw talent like Tebow.

Gaffe after gaffe for this organization. You have a sports car you aren't willing to use because of the 2001 Cavalier that has started games basically. Since when did 3-10 instill confidence? They certainly can't do any worse with Tebow. Winning attitude goes a long way. That's all I'm saying. It is too bad Tebow couldn't have ended up with a team like the Steelers or Eagles that will at least give him an ideal situation where he can truly learn from guys that have a vested interest in him. By that I mean they wouldn't be afraid to use the sports car every once in a while. The guys confidence is going to take a nose dive if he doesn't get on the field that much this year.

Forget little timmy, we don't need to spend 50 million on potential.

Quote:
As one highly knowledgeable member of the organization told me Monday, “If everything was totally equal, and this were a competition based only on performance at this camp, Tebow would probably be the fourth-string guy. Kyle [Orton] is far and away the best, and Tebow’s way behind [Brady] Quinn, too. And I’m telling you, Adam Weber is flat-out better right now.”
Quote:
For all the talk about Tebow’s need to improve his mechanics, Broncos sources say his lack of familiarity with running a pro-style offense is an even more egregious issue. As one executive says, “Forget about how he delivers the ball, or how accurate it is. First he has to know where to go with it.”
