Really? He doesn't win. He didn't win. Live in the Broncos market and then tell me why he still isn't in Denver. It had nothing to do with his personal beliefs. The defense won those games for him. He played in the weakest division in the league, the D would keep the game within six which wasn't all that hard to. Then Tebowed manage to eke out a touchdown at the end of the game when he hadn't done anything else the other 55 minutes. The Pats pretty much exposed him. There's a reason the most interested team in him plays in an arena, he's not an NFL quarterback. And no, there's no hate. I could give a crap about him. Just don't want to see him wreck a team I do give a crap about.

3. Mantei is a classic fit as a 4-3 MLB. I just don't see him as a good fit in a 3-4.

4.

I really like 4.

The guy has a career completion percentage of less than 50%. You call it hate, I call it justified criticism.

Re: Big Gambles for the Saints to Consider

Somebody once said that if a team wins or loses the QB is usually the one that is either glorified or put on the chopping block. The Broncos were on a bad road inserted Tebow and began to win and get into the playoffs

I think it is crazy that SO many people want to an enjoy seeing this guy down.

Re: Big Gambles for the Saints to Consider

I have no feelings ill or good toward Tebow. But, seriously, I think it is evident his skill set doesn't fit the current offense. So to utilize him in anyway either means he's a gimmick or the Saints run offense for Brees and one for Tebow. Tebow cannot run the verticle passing game the Saints run and Brees can't run the read-option that is the only offense Tebow is successful running. So, Tebow is a bad fit as a back-up QB for the Saints. Now, if there's a team that runs the read option and wants Tebow, then maybe he'd be a good fit. It's nothing against him personally.

Re: Big Gambles for the Saints to Consider

My thing is, has anyone ever tried to work with Tebow or has every team that he has been in just decided to take for the physical specimen that he is

I am saying that as a question. It seems like that offense that he has been on have all tried to just cater to the player that he is instead of train him to the player that he could be

It is the same question that keeps being asked about our defense.

The thing is, with all of our needs do we really want to spending any money on what is basically going to be a gimmick player at least at first? Not to mention deal with the attached circus.

You're right. The higher you are, the more want to see you fall.

But let's be real here...

WEAK division. Denver's D was strong and the offense was often stagnant. Tebow threw for less than 2,000 yards, 12 td's (Drew can throw that in two games) and 6 turnovers...

Two words - QB Rating. Timmy's was a paltry 29.9 the year he started.

But we want him to be a Saint???
