    Serious question. There are those on this site claiming that Belichick will keep him on the final roster, so the real question is whether they actually believe he has earned it or if they simply think they should keep him because they like Tim Tebow?

    Based on what he's done on the field, no.

    I really hope this Tebow thing doesn't turn into a "the one that got away" episode for Josh McDaniels.

    I'd have to say no. He could tear it up this week though and secure one. But, to date, he's looked anywhere from inconsistent to horrible.

    My opinion won't surprise anyone, Tebow has performed worse than any other player on this team during this camp and pre-season and shouldn't be on the 75 man roster let alone the 53. If he is serious about a career in football he should go to the CFL and learn how to play well enough to make an NFL team. Imo it is ridiculous that some people want him on the team when he hasn't earned it.

    it is a valid question, players earn spots on teams they aren't supposed to have them handed to them in a popularity contest. If Tebow supporters believe he has earned a roster spot they should say so and say what he has done to eanr the spot.

    BB's answer to this question will be the only one that matters.

    If you don't have the guts to stand by your beliefs that is your issue, i know where I stand and why. If you think he has earned a spot then tell us how and why.

    By that logic Ian should just shut the site down because there is nothing for us to talk about. Obviously Belichick makes all the decisions, but we still get to discuss them.

    Not really, at least not the way the question is worded. Realistically nobody knows whether Tebow has earned a spot other than Bill and maybe some of his coaches.

    HOw about a poll asking Tebow supporters why they want him to make the team? I think that's what you're getting at anyway....

    You haven't defined earned. And I've justified a Tebow place on the roster in all the othe other Tebow threads - you just have to look at my second to last post in the mega-thread.

    People have told you where they stand with TT in the other thread, you disagree. Now you want to create another thread to rinse and repeat the same arguments?

    I'll save you some trouble, there were 77 or 76 people that wanted to keep(cut or keep poll) TT before Thursdays game now there are 85. Since then that's about 8 people and some have voiced why.

    Based on how he asked the question????

    How the f&$& else can you ask it?

    Tim Tebow hasn't earned the spot on his favorite dress that shows up when you shine a black light on it, from his new job in a massage parlor.

    But yeah, if people want to keep him around for what he's going to do, because 2 out of the 3 pre-cogs say he will one day throw at an NFL level, okay. It's possible this stuff goes on past 8/31.

    And everybody else on the board will be demanding to see the minority report.

    Here's another FAIR question..has Mallett EARNED his? If so how?...discuss....Both of our backup QBs have been really disappointing imho..

    No. To be honest, I'll be slightly disappointed in Belichick, McDaniels and Caserio if Tebow does make the final 53 man roster. That said, it's Kraft's franchise and Belichick's team so they can do what they like with it.

    Mallett is the 2nd best QB on the team, and I'd say better and more upside than most backups out there...hence the roster spot.

    That's actually an interesting point. Wonder if Kraft has any influence on this decision. I can see him pushing for Tebow, and I don't think I like the idea of his opinion on personnel to be relevant.

    How is the bolded not loaded? Find me five people on this forum who think Tebow should make the team "simply" because they like him and I'll retract.

    [/QUOTE] I'd say he's earned it over Tebow. He can throw the ball and more often than not, read a defense. Pretty simple.

    You justifying a place for Tebow on the roster and Tebow actually earning a spot are two entirely different things, and it is an obvious attempt at avoiding answering the real question, which is whether or not Tebow has earned a spot through HIS performance.

    If this thread is deservedly cast into internet oblivion, let it be recorded that it contained one post of comic genius.

    Actually what i am looking for is the Tebow supporters who believe he HAS earned a spot and for them to say what he has done to earn it. So far all i have seen are the Tebow supporters who want him on the team simply because he is Tim Tebow, and this poll and thread was an effort to actually locate the people you are talking about. So far none have appeared, otherwise we would be reading their explanations right now rather than their attempts to deflect from it.

    Stand up and tell us what he has done to earn a spot on the team, the opportunity is staring you right in the face.

    His performance where:

    The meeting room?
    Training camp?
    Closed practices?

    Because I can guarantee that all those will factor in to any consideration when the decision whether to retain Tebow is made. And the truth is, I, nor anyone else here knows the answer to that so we can't judge "HIS performance" properly.

    Tebow will make the team the team beacuse Belichick likes him. Does he play i don't think so, he will sit the bench and be lucky to play a few plays this season.

    No, he hasn't. But he's still gonna be on the final 53 because they signed him with a plan in mind that was going to take longer than 2 months to realize. Hope this helps.

    edit: lmao @ public poll to name and shame.
