The Tebow Project

I've been thinking about Tebow's style of play somewhat. Pretty much backyard football. We all know top receivers and top offensive players would be frustrated in playing with him, so I've been thinking. What if a team decided to sign Tebow as their QB, and then put a bunch of role playing, cost efficient players around him on the offensive side of the ball. While on the defensive side of the ball, sign and draft big time stars to create a HOF defense. We've seen what Tebow do with the Broncos, but we know Fox handcuffed Tebow for most of the games he played. Rex Ryan handcuffed Tebow even more. Yet I imagine what Tebow can do if you just let him go, and do his thing from start to finish?

So what do you guys think about that? A cost efficient offense with Tebow as the main weapon, and spending all your money and effort on defense. Could that project work?

I'm trying to imagine what Tebow would do if you just "let him go", with a garbage line and no receivers, and it's not pretty.

What... the... hell...?


If the goal of that project is to create the most inept offense in the NFL, then yeah, I'm sure it would be wildly successful. This isn't college. Timmy was a great college QB, but in the NFL? Not so much. There was a reason he was let go in Denver, there was a reason Rex passed over him for the '3rd string' QB when Tebow was technically supposed to be right behind Sanchez in the depth charts, and there was also a reason many of his teammates alluded to the fact that Sanchez gave them a better chance to win, despite how bad Sanchez was.

So Tebow with a patchwork offense that you spend peanuts on? Yeah, "let him go"... let him go and killed that is. I'm not saying he can't eventually improve to be an NFL-caliber QB (we haven't really seen him play since his media-frenzy time in Denver, so idk), but at the moment, no... just... no.

I suppose a cost efficient offense wouldn't mean we drag guys off the street to play $100 bucks a game, but not big money contracts you would pay a Megatron/Fitz/and top O-lineman. (Of course I don't know if O-lineman complain that much about playing with Tebow) Of course all of this is just in good fun. (Of course I'm on record in wanting see if Tebow could succeed long term playing backyard football)

I actually would like to see Tebow join Chip Kelly in Philadelphia. His offense is about as good as it gets for a guy like Tebow. Always taking snaps out of the shotgun, he can run the ball in Kelly's offense, and runs the spread option.

Philadelphia is a cesspool. Tebow would hate it there. More than New York. Trust me I've lived in both cities.

Instead, what if a team decide to draft a player faster and more accurate than Tebow and build a superbowl team around him: KAEPERNICK/CAM/RG3/WILSON/LUCK and more to come. Tebow will be a good, bitter college football analyst. Leave it as that. Enough of all those Tebow opportunities.

[b]In one season with a team that couldn't produce first downs with kyle orton, has around 8 4th quarter comebacks. some of which were double digit. Wins an overtime playoff game against the heavily favored steelers. only to face the pats with jon foxs stagnent keep the ball away from brady strategy. thats what it means to "let him go". If the broncs would have tried to shootout with the pats like they did the steelers they coulda won that game. But just like the rest of tebows opportunities he was stiffled by old farts that hate to be wrong. i disagree with a low cost offense. Give him percy harvin speed on the field with a good o-line and he'll make your rbs look good. ask mcgahee[/b]

Problem with Tebow is, if your team is behind in the game by a couple TD's, it is just too hard to catch up.

Sure, if the defense was stacked, the game would be competitive. But a Tebow based offense just makes me cringe to think about. 5 TE sets??
