The Colts 2011 season was orchestrated by Jim Irsay if you know what I mean
I don't think the team should be experimenting with 2 point conversions with Tebow beyond any normal situation where you'd go for 2.
You can't be serious? You're thread count alone suggests you're a Pats fan. Again, you can't be serious?
Tim Tebow's game-tying two-point conversion - YouTube
Look at the history of the two point conversion and you're going to say that Tebow's abilty to run will somehow be able to overcome a success rate of .4? And that somehow translates into him making your 53 man roster? Crack isn't your friend.
Research should be your friend however:
Advanced NFL Stats: Almost Always Go for 2-Point Conversions?
And Tebow is 7-7 on runs within the 3 yard line.
So that's still a "yup".
Sure, one individual can definitely outperform the .4 success rate. Did you fail at math when in school?
Awesome idea, the Patriots need points so take the GOAT QB off the field and replace him with a fumble machine who can't pass. Defenses are really going to hate that.
Haha. Awesome. A 2 point conversion arguement.
The .4 in my post was totally wrong, remember everything you read on the internet must be true. And again, as a Colts fan, I really hope Tebow makes the Pats roster. Three yards and cloud of dust and all. But your team is going to suck ass all year long with him on it.
Good to see you Ivan - always enjoy crossing swords with you and your straw men.
1. Did I say anything about taking Brady of the field? That would be a know. In fact, I've said with some consistency that I like the idea of Tebow lining up alongside Brady either as a conventional FB or as a 2nd QB that could potentially take a shotgun snap too.
2. College defenses certainly didn't like seeing Tebow in goal line situations. That's why he scored more CFB TD's than some of the absolute greats.
3. NFL defenses didn't much like it either considering the last stat I saw had Tebow going 7-7 from inside the 3.
And just as a point of interest (and no this does not mean I think Tebow should get a roster spot instead of Blount), but in 2011, Tebow had both more rushing TDs and rushing first downs than LeGarette Blount. Just found that and thought it interesting.
So your idea is to have a fumble machine play out of position at a position he has never played? AWESOME!
Is there any player in the league with a higher rate of fumbles than Tim Tebow?
I was forced to snicker. No choice.
Well leaving aside the "fumble machine" BS, why not - there's a whole bunch of NFL players that play at different positions to where they started. This is hardly the novelty you're suggesting.
Clearly, we signed Tebow to give us something to post about for over 270 pages, and divert us from discussing legal issues.
The cost to the team was negligible, a few lost opportunities for the WR with a real quarterback.
fumbles or fumbles lost?
he lost 6 or 7 , he had 13
Actually going to put my Ivan head on here and say that fumbles lost is a fairly irrelevant stat because chance is a major factor in who recovers the fumble.
But, in defense of my thesis about Tebow as a runner, he only had six fumbles as a runner. Still high but one season is not a good sample size (he had that many fumbles in his entire college career). And I look forward to Ivan dismissing RGIII and his 12 fumbles as a "fumble machine".
Re: Re: Why did this team sign Tebow?
How dare you compare Tebow to RGIII!!!!!!! Freaking Tebowite!!!!!!!!!?
