Post Tebow to Jags?
Quote:
Remember those rumors, way back in the fall, about the Jacksonville Jaguars setting their sights on hometown hero Tim Tebow before he'd even played his senior season? That owner Wayne Weaver was said to be considering plucking the Tebow Child early in the draft as a sales-boosting gambit? Lately, the scorn of the scouts and his obvious struggles in the Senior Bowl haven't tempered local enthusiasm for Tebow as the draft draws nigh, but at least one member of the franchise isn't afraid to express his, let's say ... misgivings about adding Tebow to the roster, according to the Florida Times-Union:

Nwaneri posted on the Jaguars’ Web site that, while cashing a check, a bank teller started talking about how Tebow will save the Jaguars.

So Nwaneri posted his five points on Tebow, with capital letters:

"1. He can't throw, PERIOD.

2. He can't read any coverage other than probably cover 2 or man.

3. The QB Wildcat WILL NOT WORK IN THIS LEAGUE. PERIOD.

4. He doesn’t know how to take a snap from center.

5. HE CAN’T THROW, and that’s really something you either have or not."

I guess that settles it, then. Obviously, there's nothing the kid can do to help the team. Oh, and one more thing:

Nwaneri then urged fans to buy tickets because he doesn’t want to come out "for pregame warmups to a COMPLETELY EMPTY STADIUM ANYMORE."

Let's talk business, Uche: Whether or not the Tebow Child can make a successful transition to the pro game on the field, putting warm bodies in seats is obviously among the greatest of his many other talents. Give the people what they want. And even if Nwaneri and the legions of critics are right that Tebow is bound for NFL flopdom, I guarantee thousands of Georgia fans would be willing to make the drive down to the site of so many Cocktail Party aggravations for the sole purpose of watching their former tormenter operate behind a line that might not feel much like blocking for him.

The only question I have, is since when did Phins Rock plays for the Jaguars?

Wow... I hope Tebow becomes a star just so this guy looks like a moron.

31 for 35 for 482 yards and 3 td's in the Sugar Bowl and this guy can't throw? People might be right when they say Tebow can't play QB at the NFL level, but from everything I've seen of this guy he is definitely a winner.

Well.... I've watched, as well as all of you have probably.... Tebow make play after play "at the college" level. Now who's to say that he can't make it in the NFL? I'm not going to say it... he's a winner, it's in him... will he be the best thing since Dan Marino, I doubt it, but who am I to say that he can't make something of himself in the league? There's only one way to find that out.... put the pads on, strap up, and do the darn thing.

Most of the players like Tebow, strong leaders with the uncanny ability to never give up and always believe in themselves, usually end up having successful careers just because of that. They won't take the criticism lightly and they go out there with a grudge to prove everyone wrong.

That may work for some positions. Takes more than just the intangibles to play QB in the NFL.

Again... undercutting a player of his talent isn't smart. There are plenty of late round QB's who were successful enough to prove that.

QB's that are drafted later on usually are developmental guys with good tools to work with.

There is no questioning his release. He is not going to be successful in the NFL with that kind of a release. The ball will get batted down with regularity, and he will lead DB's to the ball consistently. His accuracy also needs to improve, and he does not have very good arm strength (in terms or speed, not distance).

I just can't see him doing it at QB. Maybe a different position...but it would be very difficult to develope this guy into an NFL QB, even in a spread system.

I think he could be a decent WildCat player though.

I disagree... I think with a good enough coaching staff and a lot of hard work from Tebow he could develop into a fine QB. Maybe not a Superstar... but he'd be better than a lot of the guys out there today.

He'd be even better if he finds a team that will adjust to him, for instance, running out of the shotgun more often.

He'll give it his all. And I respect him for his drive, what he does as a person in the community, and all of those things. That said I am a Tebow fan, but I just don't see it.
