Please, by that logic we could use Joakim Noah. Though I do admit I do like the kind of passion that Tebow brings to the table.

Seriously? You could use someone that is averaging 10.6ppg and 10.6rpg per 36 minutes only going into his 3rd season that has intensity. Just in case you didn't notice, and judging by your comment, you likely haven't, you had 19 wins last year. 19 WINS!!! You could use all the help you can get! Which we will need if Campbell doesn't produce.

I am really curious as to what exactly it is that makes Tebow NOT nfl ready, but other college qb's NFL ready...in particular McCoy.

That's the truth right there, and the best reason to kill off this thread. I've never seen a team drool so openly over a guy who is three games into his senior season. I'm gonna keep an eye on the Jags down the stretch to see if they intentionally tank their season to get in a better draft position. Tebow is a Jacksonville local, so it is part talent, BIG part ticket sales.

You guys can spend all day talking about whether or not Tebow will be a QB in the NFL. His skills really don't matter in this case . . . the Jaguars will draft him and start him as QB.

Keep an eye on the Jags late in the season. We may have a whole new definition of the "Florida Flop."

Re: Tebow: Is he the Redskins solution?

Be interesting to see if the mock drafts change this week. WASH QB Locker may move into top 15. Watch for an update later this week to the NFL Mock Draft Database. Since theWarpath is the home for DCPSR, updates will come here first.

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?

I too am a huge florida gators fan, and have been watching Tebow since he was a freshman, and can say that for how much I like him as a player and leader, he isn't an NFL QB.

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.
