If Tebow goes to the Bucs, I might just get season tickets.
You might want to hold on to those donuts!
If Mallet signs somewhere else, I could see the Pats bringing Tebow to camp again to see if he has improved.
maybe he is finally deciding to bulk up to give it a shot at H back or tight end
Is he working out on a football field or studio?
I think he is working out on...a smart phone.
I don't understand why this guy can't land at least a backup role somewhere. This league is filled with QB's on depth charts that you will probably never see take a snap, and here is a guy who turned a team's season around from sub .500 to playoffs who nobody wants. My only guess is nobody wants the media storm that comes with him, thanks to ESPN who loves to praise and then destroy this man.
Tebow has been Blackballed from the NFL, like Rhett ,sorry to say, hope they prove me wrong.
I don't think that's the case, but he sure is finding it hard to re-open the doors that used to be open to him... The Jets and Denver owners/management are the ones that should be "blackballed," IMHO.
Again, it's not just the media circus, it's the fact that you have to design an offense around him because he is unique. Denver committed to it and it worked, sorta. I say sorta because there was a whole lot of luck in their run that had nothing to do with Tim. They needed an onsidei kick to come back against Miami, Chicago fumbled in GW FG range, Prater hit 2 long game winning kicks etc.
So what team wants the media circus that comes with a backup who you can't just plug in when the starter goes down, and who had 3/4 of one good season, in an offense that had to be completely redesigned for him, with a bunch of good breaks sprinkled in? Just not worth it for most teams, the only teams that make sense are the Florida teams or some other teams in the absolute doldrums who need some excitement.
It has nothing to do with him being blackballed, from the teams' perspectives it just isn't worth it in most places.
You don't really need to design a offense around Tebow. It's just a myth the media uses. Tebow looked better in McDaniels offense (that had no spread option) in 2010 as a rookie than he did in 2011 under Fox. In fact, he only looked good under Fox when they let him play in a McDaniel's style spread offense in 2 minute drill situations in 2011. Tebow played in the same offense in 2010 that Orton did.
Denver randomly plugged Tebow in under 2 different offenses and 2 different HCs in both 2010 and 2011 and their offense improved and Tebow looked good. Denver's offense in 2011 was pathetic in design. They just ran the ball on 1st and 2nd down and then made Tebow throw a 30 yard pass on 3rd down. Tebow is a good intermediate range passer and they completely ignored it (which is why his completion percentage was lower). Imagine if Tebow had an offense built for his strengths.
I just hope he gets a shot on some team, somewhere in the NFL. I realize being a "good guy" doesn't equate to anything in pro ball but you can't tell me that Tebow is not more tan capable of beating out over 50% of the current 2nd stringers out there. What has everyone worried and avoiding Tebow is the "circus" that follows Tebow. Again, not his fault, but very much so a part of the reason why I feel teams are avoiding working Tebow out.
I'm a big Tebow fan, I think the world of him as a person and player. But he's now been cut by 3 teams. How many more need to cut him before he has been given a fair shot?
Ok, I'm game. Let's have the Errict Rhett "blackballed" conspiracy story.
I can't wait to see the 30 for 30 on Tebow about 15 years from now!!
Listen, I love Tebow, but he is not a "traditional" QB. He is much more successful when things break down. Sitting around waiting in the pocket is not his game. I mean, he's good enough to do it, and did it well in college, but look at all his comebacks in the NFL. He is so much better when he is running around like a crazy person.
Until a coach is willing to take a chance on Tebow's style of offense, fully, he won't be as successful. And that's not a slight on Tebow. Everyone has strengths and weaknesses.
Tebow did a good job at Denver, which is why another team needs to (and will) give him a shot. Had he performed poorly you would have had a point.
Many athletes have been passed over many times by pro teams only to excel later down the road like Jeremy Lin. Kurt Warner was cut by the Packer and no NFL team signed him for years. He had to resort to working in a Grocery store.
His motion is tighter and ball comes out of his hand better. The thing he always needed most was for his footwork to become his internal clock to lead him through his progressions. He has always been very protective of the ball. He needs a bunch of no consequence throwing sessions we're he just let's it rip. Throwing on time and throwing guys open. Don't worry if coverage is tight. Let it rip and see how often you can get away with it. Qb needs to be like a batter. He's up there swinging at every pitch and then decides not to based on location. Timmy needs to be ready to let it rip at top of every drop, then decide not to based on coverage.
"On the seventh day, God rested Tebow."
