  • Maybe Sanchez gets cut. He might be an upgrade to Quinn? Tebow doesn't seem like a valid option.

  • Salamander, you're confusing "as-yet-unseen-by-Tebow gimmicks and a lot of luck with a defense that carried the team" with "fact of the matter is". There's no way Tebow could repeat that.

  • Conversation with my brother-in-law about Tebow:

    Him: "He's as good as That quarterback for the Rams."
    Me: "Sam Bradford?"
    Him: "Yeah, he sucks."
    Me: "You think, Tebow, the randy johnson throwing style of NFL quarterbacks is better then Sam Bradford?"
    Him: "He won a playoff game, has Sam Bradford even made it to the playoffs?"
    Me: "Andrew Luck and RG3 haven't won playoff games either, maybe he could start there..."
    Me: "If he was even mediocre, don't you think he would be starting for the Jets?"
    Him: "Sanchez beat him out for the starting job, the team has to stick with the guy they chose at this point."
    Me: "So, he's worse then Sanchez, but better then Sam Bradford?"
    Him: "You're missing the point."
    Me: "What's the point?"

    .. The conversation continued, but I honestly don't remember much of the rest. I was irritated that he was defending Tebow as a quarterback.

    The guy IS NOT A QUARTERBACK!

    He makes no sense as a backup quarterback because... HE'S NOT A QUARTERBACK! I have more faith in Robinson as our quarterback then Tebow and I've never even seen him play quarterback.

    Just one more time, for good measure: HE'S NOT A QUARTERBACK!!!!!!

I'm not going to stop just because some folks say he sucks. I agree he's not a starter and I hate him as a starter, but I think he could be an asset. Brady Quinn has never been a winner.


    Its not that it is a bad idea, personnel wise, its a bad idea exposure wise. This team we have is good, why risk the media circus for a back up? He needs to start somewhere as he doesn't bring enough to the table to warrant 90% of the team's media coverage to be how awesomely Tebow held a clip board.

    I'll get my car keys. Pick you up in three hours?

    Seriously, this guy doesn't have a future as a quarterback. I've toyed with the concept of him as a Seahawk in some bizarre QB/RB/TE hybrid thingy, but it just won't work anymore. Not with the team we've built. Besides, who would you lose to pick him up?

    I've heard he's had several offers from teams wanting to convert him to TE and he's turned them down. That'd be a seriously smart decision for him. Plenty of people are looking for TE's, and if you throw in one that can throw the ball at least decently, you've got yourself loaded up for a trick play or two. Hell, I'd see that here before any other combination of stupid people are throwing out there.

    His refusal to convert to TE, FB, or any less glamorous position is funny because it's demonstrative of pride, the deadly sin which falls in direct opposition to a core Christian tenet - humility. The guy is a selfish hypocrite, a terrible football player, and a complete side show. I hope he stays the hell away from the Seahawks, no matter what position he ends up playing.

    And I think that would be best for him. Go up to Montreal, stay in the same system for a few years out of the media spotlight, concentrate on his throwing motion and his footwork and try to rehabilitate his career the way Doug Flutie did after his first attempt in the NFL with the Bears didn't work out.

    He is not a quarterback now, but I think he could become a decent one if he puts in a few years' work. That's not going to happen in the NFL, but it could happen north of the border.

  • I am ecstatic when i see national coverage of the Hawks, but if we picked him up it's all people would talk about.
    This will hopefully be my last post about Tebow.

    I don't want to hear how he could help with the read-option. We don't run a read option offense. It's a change up.

    I don't want to hear how he won a playoff game. He led a drive in overtime.

    I don't want to hear about other teams having to "game plan" for him. I want Wilson on the field, and only Wilson on the field as a QB.

    This is the NFL. Not Madden.

    I don't want to hear about Tebow, especially because Skip Bayless thinks it's a good idea.

    Side note: Seahawks will dominate Madden this year.

    Is "Buttfumble" a legitimate offensive play in Madden yet?

  • I think it is time for Tebow to come out of the closet too. He might be Mr. do right but dude looks like a silly boy and he has the skills to go with it. Churches sure do know how to turn em out.

    He can come out as the NFL's first asexual player. Ain't nobody in their right mind turned down as much hot cheerleader and chorus girl ass as he has.

  • Patriots | Could show interest in Tim Tebow
    Mon, 29 Apr 2013 12:27:27 -0700
    The New England Patriots could consider pursuing free-agent QB Tim Tebow (Jets) this offseason.

    How amazing would it be if they added a defensive play call named that, where you could try to cause a butt fumble? Hahaha.

    Seems like it should be a special 'unlockable' move for defenses playing against Sanchez similar to the special moves in fighting games. It would have the added bonus of inciting the crowd against the Jets with a double modifier for doing it in the New Meadowlands.

    This needs to happen.

  • I could see it in the training area of the game! But the play would be on the O-side of the ball. He had one guy to get around and it was his own player. Unable to shake his center, Mark went butterfingers. I'd buy that game!
