This morning I heard Colt on ESPN talk about how it's his dream to play for the Dallas Cowboys. And I said to myself "To bad MF your going to the Skins b*tch, how's that for a dream".
How about the fact that Tebow was without his two best recievers for most of the game, and the starting TE and RB both had the flu, coupled with Tennessee having the #3 defense in the country for the second straight year? He chose to run the ball because they can't stop it. Take what they give you.

Re: Tebow: Is he the Redskins solution?

Tebow=Heath Shuler 2.0

Don't get me wrong, he is a PHENOMENAL college player, possibly one of the Top 10 greatest college players ever, BUT, I don't see him as a 16 game starting QB in the NFL.

His main weapon in college is his body. He's as big as linebackers, as strong as linemen and as fast as a tight end. In the league, he'll be as big as safeties, as strong as corners and as fast as linemen. In other words, his advantages will be neutralized. He doesn't have the pure QB skills to run an NFL offense.

Re: Tebow: Is he the Redskins solution?

How tall is Tebow? Not what he's listed at, but in reality? That's one of those things that is exposed in the combine, so many schools have guys that are 6'3 w/4.3 speed, which in the combine is revealed as 6'0 ,4.55.

If Tebow is under 6' he's gonna have an even harder time getting a team to play him at qb. His mechanics don't look smooth for an nfl qb, but I don't know if that's enough to say he can't play qb. In recent years I think nfl coaches are more open to unconventional styles at the position. The ideal scenario for Tebow might be to play wildcat or h-back & be a 3rd string qb. Then he might eventually be a regular qb.

To answer the question of this thread, NO, he's not the solution, at least not anytime soon. But, if we draft Tebow I hope it's no earlier than in the 4th, and I think he can contribute to a team in some form. Maybe fullback is his natural position in the nfl.

All depends

We could've and tried to replace Campbell this year.. I'd say the inability to said that we were "stuck" with him for another year more than anything else, from an FO standpoint

I think that sums it up nicely. I mean, the bottom line here is that "guts" and "intensity" and "IT" and even the ability to run (and I do not even see Tebow as an elite runner in the NFL) do not win games in the NFL. You have to be able to drop back, process information, and make NFL throws. Otherwise you are a back-up or, at best, some guy who can get your team by until they can find a legitimate NFL quarterback. Certainly not someone to build a franchise around.

Re: Tebow: Is he the Redskins solution?

Yes this is pointless but we gotta talk about something. I wouldn't mind getting McCoy, Spiller, but I think we may need to end up drafting some good offensive lineman. Multiple, more than one prior to getting the sexy picks. That being said if a QB is there that we feel has the "it" then we may want to take him.

With that being said JC may not be done here. He may be the best guy available. We could sign him to a moderate deal and draft a Qb in 2010 or 2011.

Most draft gurus I read , like Kiper and Scouts.com, all say that Tebow is a great college player, one of the greates ever but his game will not transcend to the NFL.

I think Kipers mock has Tebow going on the second day of the draft.
What does that say for us when the guy with the star on his helmet is making sense...

Thank You, now if we van move on..J C is our QB, and if we make a chance it better be a real QB like a Colt Mccoy or my favorite Jimmy Clausen, also like Ryan Mallett ut he's a soph..
