Petition against signing Tebow
Wed Jan 16, 2013 12:22 pm
  • There was some radio talk nonsense raising suggestion that the Seahawks should pick up Tebow to backup Wilson. Their idiotic thought process is that Tebow could fit in well in the read-option offense.

    Tebow is NOT a good fit for Seattle. IMO Seattle is not a read-option offense, it is an adaptive offense. While Tebow might be able to run the read-option, the value of this scheme would diminish if there is no threat of a pass.

    I have nothing against Tebow as a person, but I don't want him to be a Seahawk. IMO, he should move on from trying to be QB, and convert into being full-back (a la Mike Rob), or possibly a joker tight end.

    This is my petition to NOT sign Tebow...cosign if you agree.

  • Tim Tebow isn't a good fit for QB imo - and based on late season rumors, he seems to be turning into a bit of a whiner.

  • if it wouldn't bring a bunch of nonsense drama with it, there are some ways it would make sense. I won't go into them.

    But it's not worth it.

    he's not good at throwing the ball even though that's been his job for many years now, I'm not sure why people think he can suddenly be a good blocker/receiver.

    To pile on, if Pete and John did consider it, I'd be for it. But, Tebow doesn't seem to fit the play-action, over-the-top desire.

    Also, since I'm more than capable of forming my own opinions and understanding 99% of the Tebow thing is the medias fault, not Tebow's, I think its a tad screwed up he doesn't get a shot somewhere. He's earned that going 7-4 and winning a playoff game.

    Now, a petition I would sign is no to Rex Grossman. Scott, can you start that up please?

    Exactly. I don't think they'd do it, but if they did, I would assume there was a good plan behind it.

    We all got our issues, man. Turning Rex into a really good QB=Turning a lesbian. Both things I want to be a part of.

  • I feel bad for tebow , the media/jets has ruined his career. nobody wants him because he brings more media then T.O

    Its sad because the guy is a winner. If he came and backed up wilson I wouldnt mind. I dont think he would ever see the field and if he did(due to injury) we would be okay. Read option Tebow-Lynch would not be bad.

  • You've never turned a lesbian? True story; I'm lesbian kryptonite, slept with 3 during my 1.5 year single period. I think it's because I'm small, tanned, dress pretty and hung like a PS3 joystick. Perfect gateway man.

    I'm not sure I could turn Rex out though. Maybe....

    I'm actually kind of bummed Tebow wont get a shot in Jax. Dude deserves a shot to start, not here, but, yeah.

    it's never been written that he's not, besides at this point, what's it going to hurt to try?

    Aww.... C'mon. The kid got drafted by Josh McDaniels, who was soon to be fired. Inherited by a new Broncos FO and coaching staff that wanted nothing to do with them. Stepped in for Kyle Orton and HELPED turn the Broncos season around, making it to the 2nd round of the playoffs, then dumped like trash to the Jets. I feel for the kid. Everyone knew he was gonna be a developmental project when he was drafted, but yet has never had any real development. Hasn't had a coach at the pro level for more than 1 year, and the Jets can't even keep Mark Sanchez from regressing. The dude has shown that his long passing is decent, just needs to work on reads and mechanics. People say that Kaepernick can't make anything other than basic reads, yet he's not getting roasted by everyone. People's minds were made up about Tim Tebow before he ever even set foot on an NFL field.

    I'm sick of Tebow. Can we just discuss this post instead.

    Also interesting that what is kryptonite to a lesbian is just a short man. Worst. Superhero. Ever.

  • One of the lesbo's was on the news, and jailed for sleeping with one of her female students (16yo). Down south, Kent, or somewhere. It both scared AND turned me on.

  • I would LOVE to sign Tebow... if his name wasn't Tim Tebow and he didn't bring the media circus with him... and if he played H-back. If he can catch he'd be a KILLER H-back. I'd never let him play QB on my team. Seriously, I would have Mike Rob and Sidney Rice ahead of him on the emergency QB depth chart. I might let him throw one of his wobbly awkward passes in a planned end around h-back pass or something, but not under centre. never under centre...

    It's almost always personal. People love to hate sickly sweet, pious, unorthodox Tim Tebow. I wish the media would get off his nutz though. Making life bad for everyone. Kid deserves a real shot though.

  • It's not Tebow's fault the media follows his every move, but since that's the case, I agree that the distraction is undesirable.

  • I'm fine with him backing up Russ. This would be his first time sitting behind a QB that is clearly better than him! Sure there would be hype but it would die out because there would not be a QB controversy with Russ at the helm. The last place he needs to be right now is behind a shaky starting QB. Let him be a backup and maybe learn a thing or 2. Or better yet, hopefully he'd just change to a TE or a HB.
