NFL  > General NFL  > Your Opinion of Tim Tebow
August 24, 2011, 07:18 PM
Soooo, Tebow's apparently not the great starting quarterback many people thought he would be. But does anyone else feel like being the FOURTH quarterback on the Broncos roster is a bit ridiculous? If I was Tebow, I'd be fighting my way out of there. This kid is talented. He's got all the intangibles, we all know that. He did great at the Combine, he's proven that he's a winner ... I see a future for this kid in the NFL, and seeing him on the bench sickens me. I think that if you really want to find out if this kid is ready to play in the NFL, you need to start him! There's really no other way. You never know how good he is until he's out there starting. Why haven't the Raiders tried to grab him? If he's really that unimportant to the Broncos, why don't they just let him go? Is he really satisfied with being the FOURTH quarterback on the roster ..?
I say that the Eagles should find a way to pick up Tim Tebow. Andy Reid could shape this kid up and make him a starter. Vick will get hurt during the regular season, it's almost unavoidable. He'll be out for a week here, two weeks there, things like that. Tebow could prove himself in those few weeks like Vick did when Kolb was out and show us how good he is.
What do you guys think? Can Tebow start in this league? Has he been sitting on the bench for long enough or should he sit back and watch for a little longer?

The Eagles did pick up Vince Young and to add Tebow would force them to drop at least one QB plus they'd need to give up picks etc.

I agree he should be given the chance to play and the most logical place appears to be Miami.

I think it would be best he got behind a good starter for 3+ years and learn like A Rodgers did. He is not ready to start. Only putting him in will hurt his development. And let's face it, player are playing for their pay day too and do not want to wait 3 years for him to be ready. He's be better going behind a Brees or Manning, who have 3-4 good years left. Rushing him is not the answer..

I think sitting behind Brees or Manning for a while would be a good solution. Just as long as he's not their FOURTH quarterback on the roster. That's a little ridiculous to me. This whole situation could be hurting his confidence.

Maninng sure threw alot of interceptions his first few years, of course the O-line couldn't tackle Betty White!

The offensive line is not supposed to tackle, they are supposed to block.

He hasn't really gotten a chance to show what he can do even though most Denver fans want him as the starting QB.

This is what I'm hoping for, that they cut Tebow. Someone will pick him up and treat him better. Indianapolis looks like a good place since Bellicheck already picked up Mallet in New England and Peyton looks like he'll be on his way out sooner then later.

I think the "4th" ranking is just local scuttlebutt, like you say someone's gotta go and it won't be Tebow.

This may all be a smokescreen. Orton may be the starter, but at one time he couldn't even beat out Grossman (which I thought he should have). They may trade Orton by mid season, depending on who gets hurt.
