i am alright with the hire, especially if it brings in Norv as OC. i am just very nervous about what will happen with our defense.

Although the chances of it happening are slim to none, I would cream myself if the Giants axed Gilbride and picked up Norv.

Lomas Brown just actually said San Fran is a good landing spot for Tim Tebow, since the Jags are passing on him.

Guy needs to shut the **** up right now! Do not want Tebow. Dont even want him in Oakland. He needs to stay far far away from the bay area.

Or stop being a little ***** and change positions already. If not we'll be seeing him try out for the Saskatchewan rough riders in a couple years.

what makes people think he will be any good at any other position? he's not really a great athlete by NFL standards, and who knows if he can catch? Can he take a hand off?

im sure he could take a hand off (or learn to in an offseason) and we know he can run. just try him at h-back, its not like you have a ton to lose. he isn't exactly a high priced commodity. he reminds me of hillis before he feel apart from injuries/being a cockbag


i would say he is a pretty damn good athlete and he is definitely athletic enough to play in the NFL. he just cannot throw the damn ball

uh...we do? running as a QB is MUCH different that running as an RB. The only reason he is able to run as a QB is because the defense has to cover the receivers at the same time, so there is more space. When he does run, he's running into open space, not into traffic like an RB. When he does run, he displays absolutely zero moves, nor great speed. He might have been able to run over the occasional undersized college linebacker, but in the NFL? Nope.

Why does he remind you of hillis? Just because he's white and big? Hillis runs (well ran, he's had like one good year) with a lot more power than Tebow. And again, one good year for Hillis.

no one was on the recievers when tebow was QB, they stacked the living hell out of the box. when he did run it he could steam roll guys. he had 660 yrds off 122 carries last year when every single defense he played against stacked the living hell out of the box because they knew he could not pass...that is pretty decent.

again, you do not really lose anything from giving him a shot. if it works it works, if it doesnt you cut him. he is cheap as hell.

The problem with Tebow at h-back is that you could get someone that's been playing that position their whole career and won't come with the media circus that Tebow would bring.

jets already have him, their run game isnt exactly amazing and if there a team that has NOTHING to lose its them. might as well try it, they already ate the media disaster.

the box isn't stacked on him, its stacked on the RB. They put 8 in the box, yes, but when he runs against 8 in the box he doesn't get many yards. When he gets a good run its after those guys have dropped out of the box and moved downfield to cover the WRs. I haven't seen him steamrolling anyone.

Also, he is cheap, but so is every other short yardage back, which is all he really is. And like Peyton said, you get a huge circus around your team when you bring in tebow.

hey im just playing devil's advocate. i wouldnt give the dude a chance but if a team is willing to eat the media crappola (which i honestly think will be a shadow of what it was with NY) i could see why a team would do it.

I'd see him being more a TE than an h-back.

it would be a shadow now, because I think now everyone knows he sucks. when he first got to NY it seemed like it was 50/50 between people who thought he sucked and people who thought he could play. add into that the fact that their regular QB is total ****, and then multiply that by 10 for the NY media market and you have a ****ing disaster which I called the second the Jets signed him. And oh how wonderful it has been to watch this train wreck that is the jets.

i would think he is better suited for that but no one knows if he can catch a ball. no one wants a strait blocking TE either.

changing his position has a very very slim chance of working, IMO. He's not athletic enough to rely on pure talent during the transition. He has always been a QB, where you never block, you don't run routes, you don't take handoffs, you don't catch the ball in traffic, etc. He has to learn all that stuff from scratch, basically. A team would have to spend years trying to develop him and for what? A 6'3'' 250 pound TE that is sorta fast? Those aren't all that hard to find and they already know what they are doing. I see when you take a guy like an Antonio Gates and try to teach him the ropes because he's a great athlete. I see taking like a Terrelle Pryor or someone like him and trying to make him a WR since a 6'6'' guy with grey speed does not come around too often, but Tebow is not that type of athlete, IMO. Plus those position change projects do fail, often.

straight blocking? he's probably way better at catching than he is at blocking. QBs are always tossing the ball around in practice, but how often do they block?
