    Re: Tim Tebow signs with the Patriots

    Didn't Bill call Tebow a horrible player? Wondering if this is a camp move or McDaniels trying to redeem himself for picking him in Denver?

    Josh McDaniels is like Dr. Robotnik on Nutrisystem.
    "When questioned, the Elders explained that they were in search of magical powers. However, they're actually searching for the whereabouts of a certain ring. This ring is a legendary treasure that long ago was known to exist"

    I also meant that as indictment of BB.

    I remember two trick plays we've run in non-pivotal situations in the Harbaugh Era: the two-point conversion against Pitt at home in the season opener blowout (after they were dicks in the offseason), and the two-pointer against the Raiders (also at home) because they were being dicks. In both cases, it could be argued the other team had it coming.

    BB is the kinda dude who will run a trick play with a random player just to prove he can.

    I predict he doesn't make the roster.

    If he is to be a backup QB, you're probably right. If they want to use him in the zone read, he should make it. I don't see them cutting Mallett.

    Tebow is a heck of an athlete. If he's willing to not pull a Kordell Stewart and play a unique position, he could pose lots of problems for a defense.

    Gronk is hurt. If anyone can convince Tebow to become a TE, it's Belichick.

    Re: Tim Tebow signs with the Patriots

    All this talk of Tim Tebow being converted to other positions ... is there any actual evidence he'd be good at them? Like, some guys go their whole lives studying to be a WR/TE but still don't run routes well, can't get separation, have bad hands, etc.

    You're telling me Tim Tebow, groomed as a QB his whole life, can just magically turn into a good player at another position? Heck, not even good, adequate? Not sure I buy it. If every good athlete with heart had a place in the NFL ...

    I agree, but he's still stuck on pretending he can be an NFL QB.

    Actual evidence in what way? A list of NFL players who played one position in college and ended up playing elsewhere in the NFL? There are plenty of examples of that happening. Could Tebow do it? I have no idea, but good athletes with heart and desire have proven that it is possible. Of course, they have to want to do it and put in the work, and even then there is no guarantee. But it is obviously possible.

    Bellicheat took Brady when nobody else wanted him - way down at the bottom of the draft,

    I know it's been done before. My point was more that everyone and their dad keeps saying "make him switch positions!" as if it's such an easy or obvious solution. There's no proof he's really good at any position in the NFL so far, because the one he actually did play he was bad at.

    I don't think people are saying it because it's an easy or obvious solution. I think people are saying it because it might be the only option, as he doesn't seem to be able to make it as a QB. If the opinion of NFL people is that he isn't an NFL QB, the only way to attempt to stay in the NFL is by switching positions.

    Re: Tim Tebow signs with the Patriots

    Imagine a Danny Woodhead type player who is a legit threat to throw the ball as well.

    If I am Bill and Josh that is were this is heading. Plus it gives you the ability to have a 3rd QB on the roster who can bring more to the table potentially.

    Honestly I hate to say it but its a good move on their part. You have Brady so nobody is going to clamor for Tebow to start which only will further motivate Tim to do what he has to in order to stick around. If they cant make it work then they let him go at minimal cost. Whats not to like about.
