Why don't they just use Tebow as a RB? Lol he acts like one when he is QB

It's not that easy to change positions.

And Denver already has three good RBs. That would be a waste of assets.

Not what BB would do; I see him as a situation player: wildcat QB or once in a while 3rd down player when 1 or 2 yards are needed to get a new set of fresh downs. Not to mention, Josh McDaniels, Tom, and Bill would improve his game greatly here in NE! People just wouldn't know it cause they wouldn't get to see him on the field often, but I'm sure if an injury occurred to Tom, and Mallett and Tebow had to get things done, everything would be fine. Ryan looked spectacular last year, and people wouldn't know what hit them -Tebow's passing game would have improved drastically, and he wouldn't just be a free for all player / he'd actually excel with us.

Adam Schefter says Green Bay, Miami and Jacksonville interested in Tebow, and others who he did not mention.

NY jets a long shot.

no more tebow time!

What do you think my chargers are gonna do this year? make the playoffs? be a darkhorse? i think so


I think we will do good this year, I like our Free Agent moves so far and we have a good history playing against Peyton, if we can get some more help with our pass rush in the draft, and more importantly Norval reads coaching for dummies. I thinking it will be a poor start as per usual get hot going into the playoffs snagging a wildcard spot and doing some damage from there. Altho I'm a complete chagers homer lol

Hines Ward wants to stay in Pittsburgh, says he wants to retire a Steeler.

Also, what a contract for Manning 5 years @ 96 million.

Eagles finally made a move to fill their huge hole in the middle of the defence by trading for DeMeco Ryans from Houston.

2 time pro-bowler and great leader. Should fit great in the middle of the 4-3.

He should really help the Eagles next season. He instantly becomes the Eagles best LB even after coming off an Achilles injury.... that's saying something. :rolleyes:

Now Eagles don't have pressure to draft a LB in the 1st round. They can wait till round 2 or 3 now and go DT in the first round.

If Tom Brady got injured, the Patriots would not be "ok". They don't have a defense to bail them out anymore.

You're expecting Tebow's passing game to "improve drastically" over the course of one season?

Mallett looked spectacular? In what a preseason game or two? Was he even active for a single game this year?

Based on your assumptions, every single backup quarterback that has ever been with Brady should be good. Which is definitely not the case. It's not easy to just mentor a QB.


Jesus, at least hide the homer a little bit.

Guy just got a 3 year contract extension. Shouldn't be worried. They've told him he's the starter. Tebow will be used in wildcat - Sprarano loved it in Miami.

Well that better teach them a lesson then, I mean seriously, all of you are already multi-millionaires and you use that money to promote injuring the other players? Just disgusting and I am glad that they got these suspensions.

Saints don't have their coach + they lost Carl Nicks, looks like it is going to be an ugly season over there in New Orleans.

What? Your saying it like I pumped these guys up big time, which I kinda did lol, but its nonetheless true.

You think in the past decade or so, Pats backups haven't been great ones when they are in need to play? Drew Bledsoe injured, Tom Brady fills in and becomes a legend. Brady season ending injury in '08 in the first week against the Chiefs, Matt Cassell comes out of nowhere and leads the team to a 11-5 record, barely missing the playoffs - it was a division tie with the Jets or Dolphins I believe, and they made it cause they won the season series.

Moral: Pats backups have proved that when the time arises and the spotlight is on for them to perform, its happened every time with Bill Belichik as head coach. Why they do so good? BB arguably has the best system in the world for football. He will get players to do a certain role, nothing more, nothing less, and everyone is given that. He makes them practise, physically, and paperwork wise, so much, its surreal - watch that documentary that was made about him last year. With his system, if the players succeed and please BB, they make the cut, and for backup QB's on the Pats, they've always excelled with Bill. Not to mention, Cassell was later traded for a 1st round pick for his amazing year.

And yea, Mallett was spectacular in the pre-season! 'Pre-season is meaningless, its worth nothing', well guess what, it is. Just like hockey or any other sport, when you see a rookie do great in the pre-season, you know he's going to become something great sometime down the road - example: how we looked at Hodgson - you can't say his impressions were worth nothing cause it was a pre-season game; those games mean a lot. Anyways, Mallett killed it when he played! There was a small, fun controversy on whether the Pats should start him or Brady in the regular season cause of amazing performances lol - You can't say he's not spectacular when you haven't seen him play, cause if you have, you'd know how well this boy can play.




Played one half only, went 12 for 19 with a TD, and was the best player on the field that day. sure you can say he faced 2nd, 3rd, 4th stringers, but its not like he was playing with 1st stringers - he had 2nd, 3rd, 4th stringers on the field too.

....You have no clue how much potential, and how talented this guy is - I guarantee you if he stays with the Pats with BB still as head coach, Mallett will become a top 3 QB in the league within 4 years of his starting career which is still a long ways to come.

I don't think it will work out, not because of that, but because Sanchez and Tebow are both bad QBs.

Tebow is used to a lot of media attention already so I don't think that will be a problem, same with Ryan's Jets.

Maybe it will light a fire under Sanchez and he'll play better, who knows.

I thought they would at least get more than just a 4th round pick in the draft, I thought they could have easily got a 2nd for him, not a 4th!


Same; they hurried to get him out way too fast - if they waited a week or two, there would've been a team wanting him badly and would've offered at least a 3rd. My take on the trade: Not a fan at all. Tebow revives the Broncos season with a miraculous year, gets the fans something to cheer for, and takes them to the post-season - they sure lost a true winner, and its sad what they did for a guy who amped up the whole organization and world. Yea its a business and all, but that shouldn't be an excuse for why they did it.


....Things already look bad in New York - look at what Antonio Cromartie tweeted earlier today or yesterday:

"We don't need Tebow. We sell out every home game let him go to Jacksonville Tampa or Miami."





.....Its why others and myself hate the Jets - cocky, run their mouths, and think talking will win games. They make the NFL look like WWE at times.
