Or maybe, we as thinking adults have given it a little thought and just don't agree with you? :no:
Timmy may not make the playing roster on Sunday as the 3rd string QB, but I think he'll be a Patriot this season. Both Bill Belicheck and Robert Kraft like Timmy too much not to give this a chance with what little they have committed financially to the plan.
ESPN was allegedly the same group that said that Tebow would not find another NFL job and that Belichek hated Tebow and would not sign him. ESPN allegedly just reports rumors they make up now and are not held accountable for any of their lies or distortions. There was a time when you needed two sources and had to fact check before reporting something. ESPN's only sources allegedly appear to be their own reporters or analysts.
There needs to be an alternative to ESPN. How is there not one? Why doesn't Sports Illustrated or something spark up an all sports television network? It would seem the Justice Department would or should do everything to make sure they would get a fair shake. ESPN is a joke.
That isn't what is happening here, though.
I personally don't give much credence to what's posted by ESPN. But I understand the logic. Most of the posts here are not understanding the logic behind this theory, which is quite simple to understand.
The logic is very simple:
If you have Aaron Hernandez and Gronkowski, you might be more likely to keep the depth cart a little more shallow at that position, given the experience and talent. Without them, you may want to go more than 3 deep, which puts other positional depth at risk. Given that the Pats have kept a 2-deep at QB with some regularity, it makes sense - at least historically - that they would look at shaving the QB depth chart.
Again, I don't necessarily subscribe to this, but it seems pretty simple to follow.
did fox just start a 24 hour sports channel?
I'm not sure how much insurance a 3rd or 4th unproven tight end adds to the two unproven tight ends they already have.
Really? If you had to have unproven TEs wouldn't you rather have 4 of them than 2?
All logic gets thrown out the window once it's a topic that's negative about Tebow, whether it's a rumor or fact.
If the rumor had been "Tebow reportedly impressing coaches and will push Tom Brady for starting job," do you think people would be crying about ESPN then?:ninja:
Possibly but you'll still want superior players. You could just put them on the practice squad or sign from other practice squads during the season. There's no advantage to littering your roster with bad players.
can't use tebow as the h-back / TE?
This sort of assumes there's a bevy of top-notch talent available, though. Which isn't the case.
this whole story/article sounds like a theory to me. there is no rumor. if it was a rumor, espn would have said something like the pats are not planning to keep tebow. the way i read the article is the reason the writer thinks the pats won't keep tebow. theory or speculation on the writer's part. his/her opinion.
Yes, that's what it is. The person who made this thread put the word "rumor" in, which is unfortunate because that isn't how ESPN presented it.
if he gets cut by new england, maybe he can play for the bucs or jaguars
Four unproven TEs vs two? Hmm, I'll opt for three.
How many times has Belichek found a diamond in the rough?
