Will Tim Tebow Become a Tight End or Choose CFL to Play Quarterback?

By now, you’re probably aware that Tim Tebow was waived by the New York Jets on Monday morning. Now, the quarterback who unintentionally (or perhaps intentionally) brings a media circus to town everywhere he goes is sitting without a team to play for. Assuming mainstream sports media outlets are hitting the nail on the head, there doesn’t seem to be much interest for Tebow. At least, not at the position of quarterback.

According to reports, the Jets were interested in keeping Tebow… if he had interest in making tight end his primary position. But the young quarterback had his say and he apparently doesn’t want to change positions.

I hate to criticize guys who have the talent and ability to make it to the NFL — and especially those who have started and won games as a quarterback. However, Tim Tebow made a huge mistake by leaving Denver. If he genuinely wanted to play QB, learning behind Peyton Manning would have been the greatest blessing in Tebow’s NFL life. I know the Bible has many wonderful things to say about patience as well.

It would seem the greatest thing Tebow could do now is get picked up by a squad such as New England, New Orleans or Green Bay, where he’s guaranteed to be a back up, and where he can learn from the best in the business. If I were Timmy T., and had that 6’3″ and 240 lbs. build, I’d want to go to the other side of the ballĀ  and obliterate the quarterbacks who are considered to be so much better than me. But that’s just me.

Back in reality, it seems the only interest any NFL teams have in Tebow is if he’s finally willing to capitulate and learn a different offensive position. If he’s dead-set on remaining a signal-caller, his best bet might be to put the word out north of the border that he wants to develop his skills in the CFL. Even up there, he’ll likely face a difficult road. Contrary to popular belief, quarterback play in the CFL is at a pretty high level and Tebow might not be up to standard.

    FRIEND OF MINE JUST READ MY FIRST COMMENT AND SAID TEBOW CAN’T PASS. BALONEY HE WAS A GREAT COLLEGE PASSER IN THE SEC WHICH SHOULD COUNT FOR SOME TALENT. BUT TEBOW WAS NEVER GIVEN THE CHANCE NOR COACHED TO PASS IN THE NFL. AT DENVER HE WAS PUT IN AN OPTION OFFENSE WHICH WAS IMMEDIATELY CRITICIZED WITH THE ORDER FROM COACH FOX TO “BEACH” THE BALL IF NOONE WAS IMMEDIATELY OPEN. NO WONDER HIS PASS PERCENTAGE WAS LOW. WITH JETS THEY WERE SO DUMB THEY SIGNED HIM AND THEN SPARANO AND RYAN HAD NO IDEA HOW TO USE HIM. SO THEY JUST DIDN’T USE HIM. UNBELIEVABLE. TEBOW CAN PASS. JUST GIVE HIM SOME GOOD COACHING AND LET HIM PLAY ENOUGH TO GET SOME EXPERIENCE AND HE WILL BE FINE. THE PROBLEM IS NOT TEBOW BUT THE NFL IDIOTS AIDED AND ABETTED BY A ANTI TEBOW MEDIA.

    Tim Tebow should now be on some NFL roster. If he were black that would be a certainty. He has done enough with Denver already to warrant a starting spot or least a backup. But he can’t pass cry the hogs of this world. But alot of starting qbs in the nfl are not so hot and they don’t win and they pad their stats and are often so yellow they don’t try to tackle a guy who just intercepted their pass. Yet they are nfl qbs. WHY? Because they fit the preordained nfl mold of a so-called pocket passer. I’m not speaking of the elites like Rodgers et al, I’m talking about players like Gabbert, Ponder, Weeden, Sanchez, Schaub, Kolb, Palmer, Locker etc. The nfl brass seem to think these types give them the best chance to win though they seldom do consistently. The nfl is a semi criminal organization who has made alot of old rules which they insist on following especially with QB’s. What the nfl cannot understand or even grasp is that it is BETTER to win with an unconventional qb than keep losing with your incompetent routine pocket passer. Surely someone in the nfl or in the stupid media should realize that Tebow is a rare different talent who will win games for you if given a chance. They can’t see that his unique style and drive coupled by his power running will produce a certain number of wins for his team that the average nfl pocket passer is incapable of acheiving. Tebow’s great year with Denver clearly showed the value of his uniqueness even though he was held back from showing more of his talents by a cautious coach and a very vindictive, jealous, know it all Elway. So why can’t the nfl types see this? Because it makes them uneasy and they don’t know how to coach Tebow and they don’t want to change their old ways. Fox almost changed the whole nfl game with Tebow into something really enjoyable and exciting. But he didn’t belive what he saw and he feared Elway who said like so many other that Tebow couldn’t pass well enough for the nfl. Oh he could win, but he just didn’t look good in the pocket. We really prefer a solid nfl gem like Kyle Orton, or the Jags Gabbert or the Jets as a perfect example to what I’m saying an incompetent Mark Sanchez. The other big roadblock to Tebow is that he is caught in a cultural cross current. It’s tolerable to be a drug thug, but not good in the eyes of the media and secular nuts and general societal malcontents to be decent, kind,and religious like Tebow even though he hurts noone and helps many. If you don’t really believe this is a factor in Tebow’s difficulties than you mus be from another planet. So this is not really Tebows fault. He has done well when given even a restricted chance at Denver. Whether the nfl has the stones and the sense to help him and give him a genuine chance seems doubtful. But be sure that some gifted black qb very similar to Tebow will emerge in the near future and revolutionize the dull nfl and the media and current haters and even the staid coaches will worship him. It’s starting to happen already with the read option types. Yes they have higher percentage completions but a few percentage points aren’t that important (see Kyle Orton or Sanches) especially when the wins start to pile up. Tebow is ahead of his time and he won’t get any credit because of the dumb coaches and the even dumber media. And of course he is decent, religious and white. Go north to Canada Tim they probably would treat you better than alot of your own misguided countrymen.
