As we all know, highly successful college QB's routinely wash out of the NFL. Tebow's success in Denver was almost entirely due to a defense which kept the Broncos in the game until he could figure out how to complete a pass. Sometimes it took him four quarters.
Or more importantly, an OC who designed an offense around his strengths. I would agree the former "twin destructo's" kept them in many games that year. What an awesome D that went almost unnoticed by the media.

No bet. I can't see how he made it by today.

I'm just glad the "Tebow would be a great NFL tight end" million-man screech has died down. What an insult to real NFL tight ends that was.

I am not sure that is not true if there was time to teach him with a proper position coach. Once you are at that level, it is hard to switch disciplines on a dime. The boy is a physical specimen, of that there is no debate. I think he is powerful enough to play the position. Learning the finesse of the position would be a project of more than a summer camp. Especially, since he was still under center at practice today. Could he learn it if he wanted to? I think he could. Hard to go from being the QB to being a TE mentally I would imagine.

Belichick's got one TE in jail and another with one arm non-functional. He's still not seeing any tight end in Tebow. That's proof enough for me.

Tight end?

Why not linebacker? He has the size and speed. Maybe offense just isn't his thing!

Saw yesterday on 'Around The Horn' that Kraft said he really likes Tebow and hopes he makes the team. Is that a message to Belichick?

Nope, he qualified the statement with "the coaches will make the final decision"

Everyone who has actually met the lad seems to like him. But that is not going to save him a roster slot. If he gets some playing time tonight...he may still be there Saturday. If it is like the last game, I am afraid he will be seeking again. Hey, he can always play for Gene Simmons.....now that would be a pairing of heaven and hell.

If he duplicates his -1 yards passing as he did the last time he played, that should sure him up a roster spot I would think.

LOL and watching it I was surprised when I read the stats...seemed like he did better than that. Even got a first down.
Too many screens. Must be Josh thinks that is the safe pass. Looks like it is not.

You know, for entertainment's sake, it would be cool if he goes 26/30 with 3 TD, 0 int, and runs for about 125 yds. Now what, Patriots???

If he truly has a learning disability, I think NE is the worst place for him. They run a pretty fancy scheme, from what I can tell.

Like i've said before, he beat the Steelers in a playoff game. The guy has a lifetime pass from me. I wish him the best.
