I agree. It might be too late for him to switch now, though. If he had less hubris and more brains, he would have made the switch to H-back when it was suggested to him before his draft.

The meek will inherit the tight end position.

Why? He took the Broncos to the playoffs and won a playoff game as a QB.

Of course he's leaving town when Peyton Manning comes in.

He had his run a a QB. He should not be faulted for playing his position when a team gives him a chance. Now that his demand as a QB is gone, it's NOW time to switch if he wants to stay in the league, but I don't blame him for being the Broncos' QB while he had the chance.

I guess the question is about his position. IMO his NFL position is H-back, not QB. If he had started his NFL career as an H-back, he would already have an established career.

Instead he wanted to be a QB, Denver was foolish enough to give him a shot at QB, and now he has little to show for his career so far and likely has to reinvent himself. In the meantime the clock is ticking on his career, which in the NFL is always relatively short.

The problem with all of this is that had he announced before he was drafted that he was going to be a TE, he would have been drafted later than the first. He wouldnt have been in all the commercials. He wouldnt have had the cult following that he has.

Im sure a lot of people would take a 3 year career that earned possibly 10's of millions over a 10 year career that earned 5 mil and brain damage.

Im still confused why people assume Tebow would be a difference maker at TE. He would probably be average at best. Can he even catch? or block?

Re: Around the NFL-Draft News & Rumors

Chris Landry brought up some good points about the Jets drafting Geno Smith. He thinks Geno has potential, needs to be coached up, but are the Jets the right fit?

Smith has shown he has thin skin and seems he wont be able to take the NY media. Smith also had a twitter moment. Head coach could be gone after this season, next coach may not see Smith as "his guy." Team still has it share of idiots on the roster. New offensive cordinator and a front office that is still more about the headlines than football. Could be interesting folks. Landry was basically saying horrible fit.

I mentioned this a while ago where I thought Tebow should've done what Michael Robinson of Penn State did. Robinson was a better passer than Tebow, just didn't have all the Baby Jesus media hype behind him. He realized right away that he wasn't a good enough passer to make it in the NFL so he went to playing FB and special teams. He didn't let his pride get in the way and now he's his 8th year in the league. Tebow should have done exactly what Robinson did. Or what our own Brian Mitchell did. Now he's out of the league in 3 years cause of his pride.

Denard Robinson will be playing RB for the Jags. Should be fun to watch.

Can that be this years version of Russell Wilson's overly excited wife?

Re: Around the NFL-Draft News & Rumors

Justin Blackmon of Jacksonville Jaguars suspended four games - ESPN

When we talk about character issues and the draft this is the risk we talk about.

So true.

On this note, IMO I am happy that the Cards got Horny Badger rather than us.

I'm with you there. Too much of a risk.

Jets will beat out the Jags for the #1 pick...barely.


The Jags should just get Tebow as a TE. They can pair a TE who can throw with their new RB who can throw and at least put on a fun show while they're losing.
