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
jags: the only reason to get him is because of ticket sales. but if you dont win, it wont matter. right now they have the rookie from last year, who did decently, and henne. tebow doesnt fit there (it's about the money. too much tied up in gabbert and henne)
miami: they need a pro style qb. heir misadventure with the wildcat is long since over
philly: besides that there are no reports on this, it doesnt seem to make a ton of sense, besides some bizarre argument that andy reid is some qb genuis all of the sudden (he isnt)
bills: might make some sense, but fitz has a shiny contract and a huge cap hit

I'm sorry, but a lil' over 6 million tied up into 2 qbs is nothing, most teams have a qb getting paid more than that with their starter, let alone including their backup. Gabbert didn't play well, in 15 starts, only threw 12 tds to 11ints, had a 50.8% complection percentage. Not much better than Tebow's, not too mention he has more talent in Jacksonville, and still lost more games by a big margin.

6 pages about Tebow on a Manning to Broncos thread should tell you one thing about him. He will sell some tickets wherever he goes.

Most of the time it was line up in singlback or I, and hand off on 1st,and 2nd down, then shotgun on 3rd with it either 3rd and short, then it was the option with tebow, or 3rd and long, which was most of the time because they never tried throwing on any down but 3rd. Which was just stupid, because when they did let him throw more often, the offense had a lot more flow to it.
They were setting him up to fail. But he didn't.
