NOT TO START AT QUARTERBACK…….
I wouldn’t want him to play QB at all. I say that meaning that he should only be used in an emergency role as QB. Similar to the likes of Antwan Randle El or Brian Mitchell .
There are certain things about Tim Tebow that you can not teach. You can manipulate them to a degree but you can not teach them.
What are some of those things you ask? Leadership, true positivity, hardwork, drive, and ability to be a true “football player.”
A team can attempt to force the issues of all of those attributes. A player is capable of flashing signs of all of them. It just so happensTebow has them engrained deeply in his soul.
I’ve taken my shots at Tim Tebow the quarterback. I didn’t even list him in my top 100 ranking of NFL players. That being said, there are 32 teams in the NFL. I believe that there are many teams that need a football player like Tim Tebow. I believe that we all put far too much emphasis on ranking players. I am of the opinion that you can either play football or you can not play football. Plain and simple.
My issues with Tebow are all quarterback related. I truly don’t see anything that would lead me to believe that his throwing mechanics can be fixed. While under pressure, as a quarterback, it is only human to resort back to what you’ve known how to do since you starting throwing a football. I, personally, do not see any opportunity for him to grow as a passer.
Tebow has proven that he is a winner, leader, hardworker, optimist, and football player. If you couple the rumors that I’m hearing with the things that I believe this team needs….. Tim Tebow can help solve a lot of those problems for the Chargers. Not QB related problems.
I tweeted out earlier, in an effort to warn people about this article, that I was writing a piece that many, many people would have issues with due to the content.
I get it. Tell me to “Tuck” off if you find my opinion to be worthless. Tell me to take a “Tucking” flying leap off a tall building.
I see people coming after my editorial director, Ernie, very often. I guarantee that not a single one of them has ever had the privilege of meeting him. But, again, I digress. Two beers in a bucket….. “Tuck it.”
I truly think that bringing in Tebow as a RB, FB, TE, punt protector, etc. would help provide a much needed positive spark to this team. A seriously needed spark to this team.
Did I mention that he has great faith in the man upstairs?
I’m sure that I’m not the only one that believes we could use a little bit of that on this team.
Please leave a comment, positive or negative, below to let me know how you feel about my opinion on Tebow.
If all you are going to do is talk smack about this article on FaceBook…… go “Tuck” yourself.
I suppose this brings new meaning to the “Tuck” Rule.
Thanks a lot for reading.

I won’t read the comments until tomorrow…. Release the Hounds!!!!
