    He should want out. He lead a team to the playoffs last year -- doesn't mean he's good, but it implies he doesnt suck. The starting QB is horrible, and yet they've given the job to an unproven and probably also sucks 3rd on the depth chart qb.

    The situation pretty much sucks for him.

    And the only times he's been used this season are in the wildcat on running plays -- if you know a qb is always going to run then it takes away the 'gained alot of yards cause the defense had to prevent the pass' type rushes

    Why they didn't use him as a full time fullback when McKnight or whoever was injured is beyond me.

    I would think he would excel at the fullback position,he seems to have a strong running presence and since he can't pass a football,why not?

    I would think he would be good in a goalline situation.

    because the new york media and tebow fans would have destroyed rex/jets if tebow got injured.

    It was a bonehead move to bring him in ........unless they signed him just so the dolphins couldn't have.


    The patriots should sign him and covert him to a TE/FB hybrid.

    Hopefully the CFL.

    The Tebow hype is ridiculous, boring and he can't play too on top of that.

    Tebow can play football....he just can't throw the ball.

    The patriots could convert him to a fb/te option for brady.

    It's simple:

    Tim Tebow = Sane Human Being

    Jets Organization = Insane Asylum

    Of course he wants out!

    No thanks.

    Too much of a distraction and he's unwittingly a locker room cancer. The media crap is no what the Patriots want.

    Not to mention:
    A. when do the Patriots use a fullback?
    B. why get a failed QB to play TE when there's Gronk, Hernandez, Fells, Ballard & Hoo-man?

    He fumbles a lot, isn't fast and can't read a defense too so he really can't play.

    developmental tight end next year, for the Patriots?

    Gronk, Aaron, Ballard, Hoo-Hoo, Fells, Tebow?

    I suppose it's a little tough to line up 6 TEs at once, but 5?



    TE TE TGCGT TE TE


    with TE and QB in the backfield!

    Tebow is an unconventional QB, but that doesn't mean he can't play the position. Just ask Dick LeBeau.

    If he was on the 49ers he could probably win 11 games. He needs to be on a team with a strong defense, good RB's and a couple of WR's who can go deep. He's not accurate on shoert passes but he can air it out.

    More like
    Brady-gronk-rain maker-welker-lloyd-with tebow as a movable Fb

    Teams would be afraid of threat tebow brings with brady

    It will be similar to what Brandon Manumaleuna was in his first year, but it will be better because the patriots have brady.

    At this point, I would hope (for his sake) that he is open to that. The guy just isn't a pro-caliber quarterback, and that's putting it kindly. Any time you're completely and utterly humiliated by the second worst pass defense of all time, it's probably time to reassess your stance on being a quarterback in the NFL.

    I'm pretty sure he is. Did you ever hear him speak? It sounds like he has the brain of a five year old. Maybe that's why he can't learn the playbook.

    The kid's already proven he can play to an extent. At this point, his detractors are just reinforcing their idiocy. The only real question is whether it's because they're bigots about religion or about football styles.

    The threat he would throw instead of Brady? Ahhh...no.

    Not really... it is what it is. The guy went 8-5, including a playoff win. He can play at some level in the NFL. That argument was lost by the anti-Tebowites last season. Those who continue to try arguing it are just showing their bigotry.

    At this point, the question is whether or not he could succeed long-term in a system designed to highlight his strengths and minimize his weaknesses. It's working so far for guys like RGIII, and Wilson, and it's having mixed results with Newton.

    What's sad is that a thread about how bad things are in Jets land, which could have been a glorious addition to the "Jets Suck" thread, has become just another Tebow bashing thread, because the bigots here can't get past themselves.
