brady is still at least 4 years away from retirement. so it wouldnt be to groom tebow as his successor (especially when they have mallet)

1. pats dont need a backup qb
2. tebow isnt a backup qb
3. ne doent need a te
4. not a lot of use for fullbacks in the belichek offense
if there is a team that is crazy and inventive enough to use tebow, it's NE, but i dont see the fit

You say McDaniels pushed for Tebow in Denver. McDaniels didn't draft Tebow in Denver to switch his position, it was to play him at QB, so your argument contradicts itself.

I think "if" they had him, they'd groom him behind Brady, but to me they won't be the team with him in the end. I think it'll be Miami, Jags, or Philly.

and fact is, tebow, once the league figures him out - just like they did with the wildcat - will be kaput as a starting qb
his days as a qb were numbered...it was next year with denver...and thats it. period
(03-19-2012 05:02 PM)snapp73 Wrote: McDaniels drafted him to be a QB, you can watch the doc about tebow leading up to the draft, he saw the same drive in tebow that he saw in Brady. Thats what made him fall in love him. And this whole BB likes guys who are versatile, I believe thats true, but Edelman wasn't taken in the 1st round and played QB and won a Playoff game as a starter throwing for over 300 yards against the #1 defense at the time. Theres a difference. Tebow did more with less in Denver. They had no TE, Only 1 WR in Decker for most of the year, and Decker is a #2 on 90% of the teams in the league, and Demaryius was coming along well, and look what Tebow was able to do with a guy with some talent, he has huge passing totals to him, like the Minnesota game, hits him for the game winnning td against Pitt, hits him in the endzone against the bears in their comeback. McGahee was benefiting from Tebow's ability to keep defenses honest. Denver did more to hamper his growth, than encourage it. He played well his rookie year when he got to throw more than 10 times in a game.
