Default Re: Tim Tebow signs with the Patriots

I ask this with no agenda, simply wondering if anyone knows the answer. Can Tim Tebow catch, block, or tackle? We know he can carry the ball like a RB but can he do as a RB?

The reason I ask is that there's no reason in the world that his time in the NFL should be at an end if he can do any of these things. It's just time for him to face his limitations and accept the reality that he has not been blessed with NFL-level QB ability. If he still wishes to play football it's time to start looking at a position change.

Does anyone know what he could do other than be a bad NFL QB?

I don't think anyone can tell you if he can catch or not, unless they were at a practice where he attempted to play TE or something. I tend to agree with you, but it remains to be seen.

Default Re: Tim Tebow signs with the Patriots

he tried a route or two with the jets and i'm comfortable saying no, he cant catch. one play really comes to mind - a simple flare where he looked lost and completely freaked when the ball came his way.

edit: paycheck found it lol

Tebow's big but he's not very fast and isn't really elusive or able to juke guys as a runner. He made most of his bones by getting the surprise with rushing the ball with the occasional laugher huge passing play. As a blocker, my guess is he's not anything special but we've never seen it on game film so who the hell really knows.

Default Re: Tim Tebow signs with the Patriots

He just needs to play when there is 2 min left in the game and behind by a score or two.

He has the "it" factor, the drive, the personality, but just does not have the ability - till the last 2 min. Then the other team's defense seems to have a spell put on them and they forget how to play.

I don't see anything about his catching ability (good or bad) here. What I see is the the DB or LB had an easy time getting to the ball and blocking it, meaning he either hasn't gotten his route down worth a darn (more likely) or the QB didn't lead him worth a crap.

It's just one play, but, just sayin...

Which means he would have had to catch it behind the direction he was facing. Probably still his own fault for running a crappy route though.

I'm not saying that was a perfect pass, but if the ball hits you in the head, as a receiver, you probably should have at least gotten your hands on it.

Either way, that's the only evidence of Tebow's receiving abilities I've seen, so that's why I posted it.

Figuratively speaking, yes.

Looks like Tebow was trying the literal meaning.

I see the Brett Farve scenario now that he is a FA.... Everytime there's a QB controversy his name will be the first name brought up...
