    Oh okay I mis-read you Afam, went back and saw you were trying to make that point.

    This is such a clown thread I have auto-clowned.

    (To be fair, that Brady pic you posted looks like a sort of "well it was ugly but it worked" pic, not one that looked like a textbook perfect QB motion pic.)

    To the main point, I am not at all sure that anybody's waiting for Tebow's throwing to work... I just think it's a possible explanation of the pickup, and, if he stays on the roster, will be the most likely explanation (not some gimmick-only role, where he can't pass.) There could be a middle ground, where he can pass well enough that it makes sense to use him in option roles... but all in all, the most likely outcome is that on 8/31 he's gone.

    I'll hurt my brain about why he's not, if that actually happens. I think his benching in g.3 of the preseason is the writing on the wall.

    (But ZOMG what if it's not?)

    Yeah hence the follow-up post. You hate the right guy, I apologize. Although I don't hate Tebow officially. Yet.

    Lol. I agree. Tebow should be hidden out of sight to work on his mechanics. I bet I have a better throwing motion than him and that's a shame. I'm curious who thought him how to throw a football btw ?

    I don't hate him. I do think he is overrated, but I have no ill will against him. I just happen to think if he is not successful here, he should retire because he is working with the best coach in football. If bill can't fix him, all hope is lost. Z

    I do hope he makes it though because it would help our team alot and one more thing to stick it to the jets.

    Urban Meyer :eek:

    Okay, to be fair, whoever Florida's QBs coach was in 2006-2010. But what, we think Meyer put all his work into his receivers???

    Ha ha. I watched the gators win the championship a few years back and I was rooting for them and tebow still had the same awful throwing motion.

    Look at my join date... . I was here two years before Tebow signed. My focus then was primarily fantasy football related. I'll still be around and with no ill will. patriots are a class act

    I'm guessing yes. I hope everyone sticks around. I have never rooted for a player over a team. For example if Brady gets traded tomorrow, I still be. Patriots fan.

    LOL

    But I think his benching in game 3 was less about Tebow and more about getting Mallett some badly needed game work. They need to find out once and for all what they have or don't have in Mallett.

    That's Statement 2.

    My whole point. We just talk past each other. Making assumptions about what the other guy is saying, so we can get to what we really think (in your case, Statement 2).

    Just read where Terrell Pryor may end up starting for the Raiders over Flynn (he'll start the final preseason game, and the job is still open).

    Trend continuing towards running quarterbacks, and therefore offenses geared towards them.

    I think that "different" factor Tebow brings to the table will be the final consideration for BB on whether to cut him.

    B*******. Tebow is horrible at throwing the ball and all those other running quarterbacks can throw the ball, that's the difference. BB will cut him and say "I'm a moron for ever bringing him in. To all you critics out there, just this once, I listened."
