Tebow didnt win the heisman because he was playing for florida.
He won it because he had 50 total touchdowns on the year, 24 rushing 26 passing, Must say very impressive for a QB much less a QB thats making all that happen in the SEC. Tebow is a workhorse!

Re: How would people feel if we drafted Tebow?

if he was a third or fourth rounder, then I wouldn't have an issue with it. He could learn alot from Drew.

He still has the ability to throw the ball. If you don't believe that, then you probably haven't watched him very much. I had an opportunity to stand directly behind a receiver he was throwing to while warming-up, and that's all it took for me.

Lot's of QB's have weird throwing motions...some made it...some didn't. Some that did...Jergensen, Kosar, Archie Manning, Rivers...to name a few. I actually never noticed anything wrong with his motion, as I had with the others, and it had to be pointed-out to me...recently by all the hoopla...but then again I am no pro scout.

I concede that there is a possiblity that he won't make it...I just think he will. Like I said before...we will all see in the next few years and all we have to do is sit back and wait. Oh...and I'll be saying, "I told ya so..."
OK. I get it. You're a gator fan. Whatever. As an LSU fan I've watched this guy a lot, on TV and twice at Tiger Stadium. Nothing he did well at florida translates to success in the NFL. He doesn't have a strong arm. He's not very bright (as shown by the wonderlic test). Running quarterbacks don't fare well in the NFL unless they have a strong arm to back it up (See John Elway). Don't worry. I'm sure some team will take him to sell tickets. I just hope it's not us.

Re: How would people feel if we drafted Tebow?

I know why I hate him - Because he is a Gator.

I also don't like the fact the rules were changed for him & he was allowed to put the bible verses on his under-eye tape.

I have no problem with relgion I just do not want it shoved in my face every chance someone gets.

PLUS - I do not see him as a true NFL QB. He still ha snot taken many snaps form under cneter & (at this point) no NFL team plays entirely form the shotgun.

Exactly right.
He is a great athlete, but will not be a great QB. Had he gone elsewhere and played LB or TE he might be a number 1 pick, but he is late 2nd for a patient team at best

Sounds like a lot of upset Tiger fans to me that have a dislike for someone they couldn't beat. With that said, I'm against drafting him also but because we don't need to draft a QB this year.

So you're saying he would have had that success playing for Vanderbilt?
