  • Somebody must have dosed my coffee at work today or something because I could swear there is a Seahawks fan on this board trying to argue that Tim Tebow is almost as good as Russell Wilson. Would somebody please tell me this is a running joke so I'll sleep better tonight?

  • Tebow is one of the worst passers the league has seen in the last 20 years, easily. And I don't even think he's that good of a runner! The playoff win argument doesn't work because, QBs don't win games, teams do. We might as well sign Seneca Wallace who is much better at passing, and is much more versatile. Can even catch the ball and return punts.

    Do you have a link where PC says he wants Tebow? Or do you have a special 'source'?


    No where did I say "Pete said yes to Tebow" It is stated everywhere that Pete has said " I want a guy like Wilson"
    No other QB is as close to Wilson as Tebow. You should know that and not nit pick.


    Nit pick? How is Tebow closer to RW than any other QB? He can't throw the stinking ball!

    Nor does Tebow have Wilson's brains or commitment....if he did, he would have changed that horrible throwing motion by now.

    I'd rather see Seneca in a 'Hawk uni, before I'd see Tebow in one! :stirthepot:

  • Don't get it why people still hate Tim Tebow.

    He can throw, (If you still say he can't throw, you're a hater)
    He wins games.
    Motivates people
    Does show leadership
    Can run the pistol formation.

    Did you watch the game against the Hawks this year? Tebow had difficulty completing a bubble screen pass with zero pressure around him. It was almost embarrassing to watch.

    Throw the glasses on! He did not say "if you disagree with me then you are a hater"
    He said "If you still say he can't throw then you are a hater."

    Is that true? Yes! How many people would say George Blanda could not throw? None. So why throw Tebow under the "can't throw" Bus while having better numbers? Hate!

    Just because you write something, that does mean it holds value.
    The truth holds value, and someone who distorts the truth is not trusted.

    What is his Job? Throwing the ball
    What has he been paid millions by muti teams to do? Throw the ball
    What did he do in high school/college? Throw the ball

    Thats what the guy does, and he did it VERY WELL last year!

    HE HIT HIS TARGETS WHEN ASKED (75% in 2012). Thats why I know he can throw.

    When a guy does his job better then the others, and someone turns and says, "He sucks" Thats a hater.

    Dude, you're making an apples and oranges comparison. For comparisons sake here are George Blanda's career stats.

    1911 of 4007 (47%) for 26,920 yards and 236 TD's. Do you know how long it took him to do that?

    26 years

    Do you know how many int's he had? 277. That's 41 more INT's than TD's.

    You're saying that if Blanda is a hall of famer then Tebow is for sure a good QB because their numbers are comparable? C'mon man.

    Blanda was good for the era he played in. He would not make an NFL squad today. The game is so much different than when Blanda played, the offenses and defenses are both far more complex. Just the terminology can be mind blowing.

    Why do you think 8 passing attempts is relevant? Seriously. Golden Tate completed 100% of the passes he attempted last year? Why don't we just make him the backup QB?

    Tebow belongs at home on the couch.

    And the only person here with an "agenda" is you and your trolling ways.

    I can tell you why they still hate Tebow.
    Its almost socially acceptable to attack the ones above us. If we attack the ones below us we look like jerks.

    Tebow holds himself to high standards, some don't like those standards and would like to bring him down to their level
    Example...ESPN offering one million cash for a lady to pop out of the woodworks to say she had sex with him"

    Now thats embarrassing! Truth be told the only thing worse then attacking someone, is blindly following an attacker.

    Where did I say that? You just went off on some crazy rant about nothing I said
    I said "did anyone say Blanda could not throw" The answer (like it should be for Tebow) is no.

    You make stuff up. Not on my watch

    His 75% is relevent due to that was the body of work that they allowed him. Do you want to start making up numbers for the last year? Or do you want to talk about what really went down. He did an amazing job when givin the chance.

    That's not why we're disagreeing with you. It's not hate, or hating. And Tebow certainly isn't "above me" or "below me". We disagree with you because we don't think he's a good Quarterback. At all. That's not hating, that's called a difference of opinion. Ours is informed by watching the guy play and stink up the field and be terribly inaccurate. Your opinion is informed by him competing 6 of 8 passing attempts for 39 yards, 23 of which came on a fake punt while ignoring the fact that he sucked something awful while in Denver.

    His 75% is relevent due to that was the body of work that they allowed him. Do you want to start making up numbers for the last year? Or do you want to talk about what really went down. He did an amazing job when givin the chance.


    No dude, 8 attempts is not a significant enough sample size. If you think it is then why aren't you clamoring for Golden Tate as backup QB?

  • Some said the same thing about Flynns example size. But you have to work with the information provided. And the information said he did good at passing!

    At least you admit he is a QB, now you just have to work out the back tracking of how a QB can not throw.

    However on page 2 of this thread you wrote

    Are you serious? Sure, Tebow has the intangibles, but that doesn't change the fact that he can't pass. At all.

    I don't know if you know this but PC also likes his QBs to be able to throw the ball and read defenses.

    Can Tebow do that? Obviously not.

  • I love how it always comes back to the insinuation that people don't like him because he's an evangelical.

    Tebow can't pass at an NFL level. That's just how it is. Reality is going to hit that he can either find a role to fill on a team besides being the quarterback, or he can go play in arenas.

  • George Blanda did not get into the HOF because of his passing stats...AND YOU KNOW IT! :141847_bnono:

    He went in the HOF primarily on his kicking prowess and longevity in the game. (He played for 26 years, had most PATs, most years scoring, etc.)

    Spokane: You think you're the only old-timer around here? LOL!

    You want to compare Blanda v. Tebow? How many extra points has Tebow kicked?

  • Blanda also played in the day when it was perfectly legal for defensive backs to tackle receivers before the ball was thrown.

    this is gonna be so damn easy.

    He threw 8 passes, completed 6, with an average for 4 yards a throw, no he cannot throw, and it shows because the Jets didn't want him to throw.

    in college he ran as much as he threw, go check it out! http://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/pla ... ll_passing

    Your ideas of him are wrong, dudes a bum.

  • Tebow is far from being a bum at the salary he will command if he is let go by the Jets and does not find a team. In fact I would say he is leaps and bounds better than any qb you can draft this year in the fourth round or later.

    What this means is that IF we get a good deal on Flynn and Tebow is available at min he is roughly worth a fourth round pick to this team. Nothing to sneeze at.

    Don't bother looking at his performance with the Jets, they did not want him to start in case he actually played well and made them look like idiots. He did not get a fair deal there. He performed much better than most backup qbs in the league in Denver and I would have no trouble seeing him finish up a game that rw needed to sit out. Any more than that and we are in trouble no matter who our backup is.

    Sum up. Sweet deal for Flynn + tebow released and on his way out of the league+he is willing to take backup job at min = sounds good to me.

    Should sound good to you too if you did not listen to what other people tell you to think too.

  • What really distinguishes RW, aside from his determination, physical skills and work ethic, is that he is a football genius. He processes information during plays like a high-speed computer.

    I'd rather have Vince Young than Tebow, but they seem to share the same problem -- they are dumb as posts when it comes to football IQ. I would much rather have Michael Robinson as a backup QB. He may not have the hype, but he has the smarts.

    Oh Jesus Christ. If you think I literally meant he is physically incapable of hucking an oblong pig skin then you're truly hopeless.

    There's a difference between being able to do something, and being able to do something well.

    It's like singing, everyone can do it, not everyone is capable of winning a grammy.

    It's also like you attempting to use logic and reason. You're trying, but you're clearly not very good at it.

  • I don't have time to read through 6 pages of posts, but wanted to comment (so I apologize if this has already been said.) Isn't the hate on Tim Tebow more about what he stands for rather than the criticism of his play? I think the criticism is blown out of proportion by those who despise him in the first place. I'm not accusing anyone here specifically. The OP was correct to report that the Hawks want another mobile QB and even though no player is going to measure up to RW in my opinion (total package of leadership skills, etc.), Tim Tebow would be a very wise pickup for the Seahawks. (I don't think Tim Tebow always has to be thought of as "Wildcat", either.) I think PC might be a coach and the Seahawks an organization that could allow the best to be brought out in Tim Tebow - and Tebow could come in knowing that he's not being asked or even given a shot to carry a team on his shoulders... as has been the case in much of his career.
    I saw Josh Johnson's name mentioned somewhere as well as a possible mobile FA QB. Those type guys would be good "IF" Flynn is traded. I would rather have Flynn over any other option, but we're going to have to see if the Hawks can get a trade done to a team where he would have a better chance to get playing time. It would be a huge downgrade from RW to Tebow should he need to play, but Tebow has fire in his gut and off-the-charts leadership. He could manage a team in any absence of RW until 3 could return. I'd still like to see him utilized similarly to how the Dolphins utilized Jim Jenson years ago - and Jensen was the 3rd string QB. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Jensen_(wide_receiver)

    I think there could be many positives about Tim Tebow to the Hawks. Only if he's clear that it's RW's team and simply comes in as a team guy. I think he is and his teammates have always said that about him. He was just disappointed when he didn't get the opportunity and Greg McElroy did. Would any other player in that position feel any differently? Tim Tebow is a winner. PC likes those kind of guys and I wouldn't be at all surprised to see him as a Seahawk. I'm not holding my breath and rooting for that... but, would affirm it being a great addition should it happen.

  • No, the "hate" on Tebow is not about what he stands for.

    Good God, how have so many people bought this narrative? Have people seen the wounded birds he calls passing attempts? He is not a quarterback, because he's not even an average NFL passer.

    Maybe some places, but not here. As an agnostic let me tell you that I don't give 2 shits about his faith or how he wants to express it. If my team needed a quarterback and I thought he fit the bill I wouldn't care how publicly he expressed his faith.

    My criticism of him is his sorry completion percentage, inability to quickly diagnose defenses, and propensity for turnovers.

    The religious thing....jokes...I'll laugh at, but they don't actually matter.

    The upside is you missed nothing!

    There are a million other QBs in the NFL that suck more then Tebow, So why all the tough talk for this guy?

    It goes back to the idea that we attack the ones above us, to bring them to our level. Is there anyone talking trash about Portis? No. Why? Because you would look like a jerk.

    Tebow didn't kick your dog or make out with your girl, but still there is a lot of hate floating around.

    For real name one other non seahawk QB you spent this much time focused on his negatives? Or even half? how about a 4th? Never happened.

    The question is not "Is he a good QB", the question is why are you so pissed off at a dude you never met? Is the problem you?

  • The difference is Tim Tebow might be the worst passer of any player designated as a quarterback in the NFL. That's a huge negative worth constantly repeating.

    Now, his football instincts are great, and I do think he has a role on an NFL team, I just don't like the idea of a guy who can't pass well as our #2 QB. There are guys who pass better than him I'd like less as our backup, I will say, but not a lot.

    OK, so that would make 50% of the so called QBs in the NFL not real QBs. 32 teams X 3 QBs = about 100 QBs in the NFL

    So out of the 100 current QBs, how many have you called "not a real QB"? The answer is 1 Tim Tebow.

    Its hard to say "Its about his play" when you won't say the same about lesser players.

    No, there aren't a million other QBs. 53 players times 32 teams = 1696 players total, at all positions.

    No, it doesn't come back to "attacking those above us". Nobody here feels they are "beneath" Tebow.

    Name one other QB we've spent this much time focused on his negatives? Clearly you weren't here for the Carson Palmer to Seattle Rumor days.

    I'm not pissed off at Tebow and I don't think anyone else here is either. Most of us just don't think he's a good quarterback. What pisses people off is people like you who insist that we're just haters and don't have any validity to our criticisms, while your arguments are incredibly thin.

    Why not? Have you seen Mark Sanchez and JaMarcus Russell? They got a lot more and they were almost as bad as Tebow.

  • Russell was in a forced rookie contract deal. And the Sanchez deal was what got that GM fired. Still the worst QB in the NFL does not get a 33M contract. So he is not the worst passer of any player designed as a QB.

    So if he is not the worst passer and you are calling him the worst passer, you would need a reason to call him "the worst passer" And the reason is...Hate or strong dislike.

    For one he is a 2nd stringer (starter before), there are at least 32 3rd stringers plus P squad QBs, so I will stop nothing.

    Jesus Christ, slow down, buddy. I wasn't making a mathematical statement. I'm saying what would normally be considered average passing ability in the NFL is well above what Tebow is capable of. But if you want to be bizarrely literal about things, I'll just alter my statement to say once again that Tebow is the worst passer of any NFL QB, bar none.

    But go ahead and keep twisting statements to make them about something more than football.

    By your logic you could take the worst passer and then give him 33 million and that would make him better?

    Your reasoning skills are on par with Tim Tebows passing skills. They both suck.

    Yes, he is the worst passer of any NFL player designated as a quarterback, easily.

    He got paid because he can make plays and he made some in some clutch moments, he's still an awful, awful passer. Not to mention that "$33 million contract" is really for like $10m + incentives.

  • "By your logic you could take the worst passer and then give him 33 million and that would make him better?"
    lol...OR I was saying a company is not going to shell out 33M for a loser. Not sure how you came up with that statement.

    Dumb post of the year, you must feel like your back is against the wall to make up an idea like that!

    ----
    Ok lets be real here for a minute, you said "Yes, he is the worst passer of any NFL player designated as a quarterback, easily"

    My queston is what makes him the worst passer? You know he does not have the worst stats, he shows up and plays. So whatever reason you come up with that makes him the worst, you can find at least 20 QBs that suck more in that area?

    So then it will turn out that he is not the worst, but some folks on here just simply dislike him.

  • Spokane, NFL teams shell out big bucks all the time for players that don't make it.

    Ryan Leaf
    Jamarcus Russell
    Blaine Gabbert
    Christian Ponder
    And yes, Tebow

    It even happens at other positions, see Aaron Curry.

    Just because a team gives a player a big contract doesn't mean that player is good.

  • The numbers don't lie, bro. He's horrific as a passer, in order to be a back up for this team you have to be able to throw, our use of the spread option isn't and probably won't ever be a staple of this offense, its just something we used to scare teams because Russell can throw. With Tebow? lol they're gonna laugh the offense off the field. I'd roll with Charlie Friggin' Frye before I gave Tebow a chance.

  • "he just is" isn't listed here as a reason we don't want him.

    You are either not reading what we're writing or you're deliberately ignoring the facts. You're like a young earth creationist. Willfully ignorant.
