  • Pete's smart enough not to pull any of that wildcat, take Russell out of the game BS that Ryan does in NY. I'd be perfectly fine with TEbow coming here as a back up.

  • I don't think having the athlete would be a bad thing, but the show that comes with it is not allowable in Hawkville.

  • It was dated 4-1-13, hopfully it's just an APRIL FOOLS joke. Otherwise I'd dispise this happening. The media circus over Tebow here would overshadow eveything. He's a worthless player and has no value IMO.

    Yup. I really think he would be a pretty good TE or FB. He's 6'3 240LB. With his work ethic i think he could be good at those positions.

  • Here's the thing. Pete and John have very specific ideas about very specific roles for the team. If they think Tebow could potentially fill one of those roles, why not take a look?

    Here's my prediction. If this is true, it will be as some sort of hybrid LB/S.

    p.s. This is probably just a silly rumor.

  • I agree with making him into a TE/FB the guy can make plays he is a great athlete, I just don't want to see him under center.

    This is about the only thing I'd be amenable too. Honestly, I'd rather see Portis as a backup, and that's saying something. Tebow has talent, it's just not at quarterback.

  • This was posted in the "Tebow: Idea" post. But it was buried. Not sure how I feel about this. Definitely will inflate the fan base with TJack-like zealots. Should spur some bloodletting threads.

    Can't wait!

  • C'mon, guys. The Tebow hate here is just wrong. The guy embarrassed the Stealers in the playoffs. He will always have a place in my heart for that alone.


    Let him flourish as a wedge buster.

  • I guess no one realized that this was written on April 1st. And absolutly no one else has breathed a word of this "rumor". This is an obvious april fools joke.

    And for the rest saying to bring him in and play TE or FB. Dumb. We already have a great FB and you dont carry more then one, and at best he could be a third string TE with the guys we have. Woopdee dooo, a Third String TE and a media circus to follow suit. No thank you.

    Switch out Tebow with Lynch, and thats far more disturbing.

    Tebow adds nothing to this offense and downgrades anyone we have right now. Why is this even a conversation?

  • If we can get Tebow for a 7th rounder....... :th2thumbs:
    Half of the media circus is because it was the Jets.
    We don't have Ryan. Ryan LOVES the media circus.
    Say what you want, Tebow is a hell of an athlete, a great teammate and from all accounts, just an all around good guy. If PC is comfy with him, then I am comfy with him.

    This.

    Not only does he suck but his contract does too. There is absolutely no good reason to bring this guy in. We already have good character and leadership on this team.

    4 million dollars for a guy that would basically serve as a cheerleader? No.

  • Now I am certain we will draft the Honey Badger. Tebow will be his appointed chaperone. Them knuckleheads will be yingin' and yangin' us to the promised land. We will be America's team. In love with us will be: (in no particular order) the football savvy, the potheads, the drinkers AND the Christians. All loving us equally. Can I get an Amen bruthas and sistahs?

    In all seriousness, I like it (if he's cheap). Tebow and I don't have much in common but there is nothing to dislike about this hard working, dedicated young man. The kid is coachable, he refuses to lose (despite the losses) and now that he's toned down the propaganda, the circus atmosphere has toned down as well. I would be against him being used as a TE, but as a part time fullback and back up QB....I think the kid will surprise his doubters. YMMV.
