You're talking about a guy that was going to a pro style system after four years and playing the Senior Bowl with Strep Throat. I'm not totally sold on the guy as a pro but I am comfortable with a guy like that being coached by someone named Shanahan.

At the very least he'll get our team to do this:

Which Shanny? Mike or Kyle? Mike inherited a QB from Dan Reeves who was one of the best QBs of all time. After that guy retired after his second Lombardi, Mike's fortunes went downhill in Denver. Kyle is a good coach in his own right, but Carr was a failure, and Schaub is pretty decent, but was a vet QB when he came in so who knows what Kyle can do with a QB.

Mike got John to win two Super Bowls after loosing three. He also sent Jake Plummer, Brian Griese, and Jay Cutler to the Pro Bowl. This was after the Snake had put up pathetic numbers in Arizona. Kyle Shanahan turned Matt Schuab into a top tier QB (check out his numbers this past year). I think it's safe to say they know how to develop QB's.

Kyle also had nothing to do with David Carr. That was Chris Palmer. Kyle Shanahan was still playing college football when David Carr was drafted.

Drafting Tebow would be great for the simple fact of have the Cult of Colt fighting with the Followers of the Book Of Tebow. it would be very entertaining.

Tebow talk is directly proportional to Sam Bradford's draft stock.

Re: Tebow - More Upside than Downside for a franchise......

I will say this I think Tebow will have a better chance to succed then Bradford, assuming Bradford goes to the Rams. Tebow could end up in a stable franchise under a established QB that will teach him, Bradford is going to a absoult mess in St Louis and will be expected to turn the whole thing around.

Always makes me think what would a J. Russell, A. smith, J Harrington, etc...been like if they had gone to a more established franchise.

Good to see that Tebow cries every time he loses. I used to do that to, when I was 10. The guy needs to suck it up.

J. Russell wasn't going to do well anywhere. I knew he was a bust from day 1.

I wouldn't be surprised if Tebow get's picked up by the browns/bills/jags/etc. in the second round and becomes a good player. Although it's safe to say that the scouts who predict him to be unsuccessful know what they're doing more than any of us.

yeah, I would be worried about any college football player that couldn't run through dry wall, that stuff is weak. Put that dude in the video in front of an old plaster/lathe wall; I'm puttin my money on the wall winning that one.

Re: Tebow - More Upside than Downside for a franchise......

Tim Tebow has a ton of athletic ability, he's smart, and he works hard. Sounds like someone I'd like a team full of, but I really don't want to see us reach too early for him.

At the very least he'll get our team to do this:
Seriously, that was not a wall, that was a sheet of drywall...nothing else.

He was obviously inspired by COLT BRENNAN, not Tebow.

Re: Tebow - More Upside than Downside for a franchise......

I recall JC catching some shit from some folks for getting upset after a loss... but now with Tebow it's a good thing??

Man you guys seriously need to chill with this Tebow circle jerk.

All of this bluster for an eventual H-back. Amazing.

Lotus...he's going to be a QB...and a good one at that. It's absurd to think that he isn't going to at least get a shot.
