Someone will pick him up. He's like a cockroack he'll survive. I'm still mad at him for his lame attempt last year to have dropping to one knee to PRAY COPYRIGHTED as "Tebow-ing". Insofar as what some previous posters have said I'll have to agree No.

Teams inquired about him this offseason, but they asked if he would be open to switching positions and he flat out said no. He may reconsider that now, but he seems to care more about being a QB than an NFL player.

:thinking: Hmmm. Quite the connundrum. On ONE hand, there have been some college players who were asked to switch positions when they arrived in the NFL who wound up succedeing beyond expectations. Dick Butkis was a tight end in College. A coach switched him to defense and made it to the hall of fame. Hines Ward was a quarterback in college and the Steelers turned him into a receiver. He's probably getting into the hall of fame of the first ballot.
While I understand the passion Tebow has for the game and the position he's been playing all this time. The QB I remember who was most dead set on playing QB and refused to become either a receiver or corner was Mr. Warren Moon. He was willing to go to Canada to prove he could play. Despite Vince Evans playing decent ball in Chicago and a rookie Doug Williams taking the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to an NFC championship in his rookie season no one was willing to give Moon a chance straight out of Washington.
Tebow needs to accept the fact that he's no Mr. Warren Moon but if he TRULY loves the game he MIGHT be another Hines Ward or Dick Butkis if he TRULY loves the game he'll take a reassignment in stride and excel.

While these are nice examples the vast majority of position switches are started out of desparation and end in failure.

I hate to burst your bubble, but Dick Butkus was never a tight end in college. While he played a little bit of center at Illinois, he spent the vast majority of his time at linebacker.

Similarly, Ward spent some time playing QB his sophomore season at Georgia, he finished his college career with almost 150 receptions, and almost 2,000 yards receiving, and was hardly turned into a WR by the Steelers.

Butkis was a center and linebacker in college. Ward played part-time QB and then split between WR and RB.

I hope someone gives him a shot. A real shot. Rex had something personal against the kid & was never going to give him a real opportunity.

He might not have been an All-Pro in Denver, but he did enough to win, which is more than Blain Gabbert, or whoever was throwing the ball in KC, or Cleveland.

Or even Phillip Rivers..... No doubt Rivers is a much better QB, but he's not winning & winning is what it's all about.

I think more of the credit for that needs to go to John Fox and Mike McCoy. They were smart enough to realize exactly what they needed to do to make Tebow successful. They re-designed their offense to highlight the things that Tebow could do and they put him in situations to win.

I don't blame Rex for not doing the same thing. I blame Sparano for not being creative enough. I think Rex expected Sparano to figure out ways to use Tebow and fit him into the offense and Sparano was not up to the task.

But if you're going to bring Tebow in to be your #1 QB, then you've got to create your offense around what he can and can't do. Like the Broncos did. And you've got to devote yourself to that kind of offense (something the Broncos refused to do.) You've got to get someone like a Collin Klein to be his backup. You've got to have a ocuple of QBs that have the same type of skill set.

Eh..... I would imagine Tebow could beat out Blain Gabbert, Brady Quin, and maybe even John Skelton. All these guys started at least one game in 2012. There's some bad QB'ng out there.

There's going to be some rookie that will be forced into starting in 2013 & imo, they're not helping these kids out (if they aren't ready to start, if they're ready, they're ready).

Tebow wants to be a QB, let him be a QB. If they don't win, they don't win & Tebow will be forgotten like the hundreds of QBs that don't make it every year. All the while, groom your future starter, whether it be Geno Smith, or Ej Manuel.

Tyler Wilson will probably be asked to win a game or two in 2013...

Omaha Beef offers Tim Tebow a contract - will pay him $75 a game

OMAHA, Neb. -- The Omaha Beef have a job waiting for Tim Tebow if he wants it -- and the Nebraska indoor football team will even pay him $75 a game.

A day after Tebow was cut by the New York Jets, the Beef called the office of Tebow agent Jimmy Sexton to offer a standard player contract.

He really could be an excellent James Casey type of player. Maybe a few months on the free agent list will soften him up. I think Colin Klein made the switch because no one wanted to draft him as a QB. I think Tebow will need the same sort of realization before he makes that decision.

Yep forgot to include that, here's the quote.

The Beef's quarterback, James McNear, has led the team to a 5-1 start. He's completing 70 percent of his passes and has thrown for 21 touchdowns against just two interceptions.

McNear is anything but insulted by the Beef's wooing of Tebow.

"I think Tim can learn a lot from me," McNear said.

I always got the impression that Elway/Fox put Tebow in to tank the season after it looked like the playoffs were a no-go. Instead Tebow went all "Springtime for Hitler" on them.

I know the common theory (from Tebow lovers) as to why Rex never put Tebow in was because he thought that the Jets might start winning, making him look bad for supporting Sanchez.

If Sanchez played well.... or even OK last year, I could buy the argument that Tebow had his chance & couldn't beat Sanchez out.... a fair/decent QB. But the way Mark Sanchez played, there's no way I can believe that Tebow was so bad he couldn't see the field.

All I'm saying is the man should get a fair shot, don't need any special offense for him. There will be some pitiful QBs playing next season, if they get a shot to prove what they can do.... Tebow should as well.

I'll post this here since this is the new Tebow thread

http://www.sbnation.com/2013/5/1/4282368/tim-tebow-cfl

August 17th, 2013.

June Jones was a good coach who just couldn't piece it all together in the NFL. That's not a big deal, few coaches can. I didn't really understand that until after I met with Coach June at that Toronto bistro.

American football fans think of the CFL as a joke, a necessarily lesser league, a sort of sawdust bin where the has-beens and busts of the NFL end up. It's not lesser. It's just ... a fundamentally different league. (They only have three downs, did you know that?) Getting used to how Canada did things was more of an adjustment for me.

There's obviously much more but it was an interesting read none the less.
