He also has the Ray Lewis like leadership, the work ethic, the heart, the passion, the absolute will to win at all costs, the stats, the championships, and the track record to become a good NFL QB. If you are against him, all you have is an opinion, and a grudge.

If you haven't figured it out yet, the draft is entirely about opinions. I think you might have figured it out since you realize I have an opinion. If you haven't... here's your sign.

I'm glad you can point out that Tim Tebow may not have the best tools yet anyone who thinks he wont succeed is just holding a grudge. I have a grudge against him for having a slow release and below average accuracy. I also have a grudge against him for running a gimmick offense. I'm sorry my "grudge" makes me think Tebow is a late round quarterback talent.

If you want to spend a first round pick on a bigger, slower version of Michael Robinson, good luck getting a job as a GM. If you want to get a special teams stud and locker room presence in the 3rd-5th range, I'm all for it but he will never be anything more than a Michael Robinson unless a team puts him on the sideline for 3-4 years to develop.

The team has Nate Davis who has better pocket presence, a stronger arm, and most importantly much better accuracy. He has more potential as a quarterback and he is further along in his development. The team would be better off picking playmakers at WR, DE/OLB, CB, or S in the first round.

Did you just compare Nate Davis and Michael Robinson to Tim Tebow? You have to be kidding! Physical Talent and IQ alone those two dont combine to Tim Tebow, Lets not forget Leadership and accomplishments.

Good call on using a highlight reel to determine his accuracy...

atleast Tebow has the ability to hit the open reciever. id like to see shaun hill make these throws.

You should turn on a football game once in a while, OR stop talking out of your ass.

Tebow will be a FB at the NFL, LOL he has an arm??? I never see him throw with great accuracy between 2-3 guys.

If he was such a great passer, they wouldn't be running the ball so much. The guy can break a tackle or two at the college level, he will get flattened if he tries to go through the Lewis's and Urlachers of the NFL.

The guy is the Reggie Bush of the NFL, get over him, who cares that he plays hard, Mark Roman plays hard, doesn't mean s**t, he doesn't have the arm or speed to be a 1st round pick, whoever uses a 1st on him I will LOL for a long time.

We need more talented football players on this team, let the elite teams take a shot and play around with him, he is to big of a risk. The only thing he is gonna provide his first years are his amazing praying abilities, and maybe a a tackle or two on SP.

And yes, I am drinking the Haterade.

People are just so focused that Tebow is playing under Urban Meyer just like Alex Smith. That doesn't mean that Tebow and Alex are the same player. Tebow plays with a lot more emotion and seems to have that "never lose" attitude just like Jeff Garcia. He's won the Heisman, won games and national championships against some very tough opponents. He brings the energy and sets the tone. That's a great player to have on your team.

What the hell does emotion or a never lose attitude have with his ability to operate out of a pro-style offense... Tebow simply has way too slow of a release and lacks the ability to deliver accurate passes downfield (dont give me this 60% completion BS either - shovel passes dont count)... Bottom line, the kid has never been forced to take a snap from under center, drop back, go through his progressions, and deliver a pass during his four years at florida - so who is to say that he is even capable of doing so - it just makes him far too big of a risk.

Jeez bowers, I'm glad your ego doesn't get the best of you either. Just cus some of us like Tebow, you suddenly have to bash all of us. Emotion and a never lose attitude is good for a QB cus it shows that they can handle adversity and despite all the criticism he receives, he comes out on top. There are other QBs that operate out of the shotgun like Bradford and the majority of the time, McCoy. I'm not saying that Tebow will be better than the both of them, but with the right coaching, he could be a very good NFL QB.
Watch the Florida Tennessee game this weekend

And with the right players too?

And with the right scheme?

If that's the case, why didn't we get this for Alex Smith

I was one of the posters here that wanted Aaron Rodgers over Alex Smith. I wasn't too much of a believer in Alex. He has a strong arm and went undefeated I believe. But his competition wasn't as tough as Rodgers. The competition Alex faced in Utah wasn't as tough as Florida's competition either. Think about it...if Tebow was placed in a run oriented offense, or a west coast offense, he would do a very good job.
Tim Tebow is the next Steve Young baby!

Damn this boy started winning from day 1!

Tebow was born on August 14, 1987 in the Philippines to Bob and Pam Tebow, who were serving as Christian missionaries at the time.[1] While pregnant Pam suffered a life-threatening infection with a pathogenic amoeba. Because of the drugs used to rouse her from a coma and to treat her dysentery, the fetus experienced a severe placental abruption. Doctors expected a stillbirth and recommended an abortion to protect her life.[1] She carried Timothy to term, and both survived.

exactly what ive said, except bigger...

his arm may not be manning'eske, but he has a better arm than shaun hill, he is a better leader by far than shaun hill, he would probably be the most athletic guy playing quarterback in the league, and as the OP said, i've never seen a football player who was so motivated and want's to win more than he does...and that alone is what i would be willing to risk with him, he finds ways to win, i dont care how pretty it looks when he does it, if he wins games, he wins games...not to mention if he was slated to be a top 5 pick, and got picked #10...id be willing to bet he'd be one of the first rookies to sign his offered contract..
I would take Tebow on my NFL team as my QB any day of the week. I wouldn't necessarily take him the 1st round and I definitely wouldn't start him right out of the gate like Ryan, Flacco, Sanchez or Stafford, but in the 2nd/3rd round (if he were still there), I'd draft him and groom to eventually take over.

Like I've said before, if Shaun Hill can win games in the NFL with his skill-set/savvy, you can bet your a$$ Tim Tebow can win games.

That's what I've been trying to say. With his motivation and people saying he can't be an NFL QB because he plays under a gimmick offense, they don't realize that if coached and groomed properly, he can learn to run a pro-style offense.
Being a good college QB doesn't mean he'll make a good pro. I think everybody understands that. And I'm sure its possible he could win some games if developed properly, but I'm not sure we can do that.

LOL at people comparing the "Tedford" QB Aaron Rodgers comments to the "Urban Meyer" labeling crowd. Rodgers is a success because he was groomed properly. If you watched any of his college games, than you'd know Green Bay completely rebuilt him as a QB. His mechanics are no where near the same and he's much bigger/stronger. It took 3 years for him to make that change. Do you really think we'll have the ability to give a first round Qb a huge contract than sit him for 3 years? I've a got a bridge to sell you if you do...

And LOL at people saying we should pass on a QB because of Nate Davis. The kid looked decent in a few preseason games, that's it. The name Thomas Clayton ring any bells? You don't bet your franchise on a fifth round pick that looked okay playing in preseason. We can't pass on drafting any 1st round QB's because Nate has "potential".

Teebow could make a good pro, but he's not a good fit for us. He is not worth a first round pick to this franchise.
lmao..man..this is a funny thread..Tebow in 10...no way..4 safety or linebacker maybe..he is like the old nebraska qb..the scott frosts..etc..hopin 2find a converted nfl position 2switch 2

Clearly you've never seen Tim Tebow play...if you have, you wouldn't make such a silly comparison.
Tebow has bust written all over him
