Tim Tebow a Falcon


Recommended Posts

With Brett Favre out of the NFL, for now, Tim Tebow is now the most polarizing player in the league.

Everyone has an opinion on Tebow, whether you are Skip Bayless, Boomer Esiason or John Elway.

Never mind that Tim has only started three games in the NFL or he is only 1-2 in those starts. Tebow is the most controversial topic in the pre-season and now being deemed the No. 4 QB on the Depth Chart behind future Hall of Famers Kyle Orton, Brady Quinn and Adam Weber.

It appears he has reached a new low in the Mile High City.

Tim Tebow, meet the Atlanta Falcons; Atlanta Falcons meet Tim Tebow. The Falcons are the best option for Tim Tebow.

Oh don’t worry Matt Ryan, this doesn’t create a quarterback controversy. Really Matt, it doesn’t.

Here’s why the move makes sense for Atlanta, Denver and Tim:

Atlanta: Bring in Tebow to be a utility player as a Tight End/Fullback for 3rd Downs, NOT as a Quarterback. He’s a big body who you can hand the ball to on 3rd and 1 for a 1st Down, block for Michael Turner or even do that “jump pass” play on 4th and Goal from inside the 2. Look at how the Saints just added Darren Sproles; how incredible could this offense be with White and Jones on the perimeter, Turner and Tebow in the backfield and Gonzalez at Tight End?

Speaking of Tony Gonzalez, he won’t be around forever. By bringing in Tebow, Gonzalez can mentor him this season to be his successor for future seasons. No disrespect to Justin Peelle, Michael Palmer or Ryan Winterswyk, but I would gamble with Tim Tebow for this role.

Oh yeah, in the business of the NFL, Tebow is No. 3 in jersey sales. He would easily continue bringing in merchandise revenue, help the Falcons’ community image and help sell tickets. Remember, Atlanta is in the heart of SEC Country where #15 is still a folk-hero and is also the heart of “The Bible Belt” so if he chose to continue his religious efforts after football, he would have ample opportunities to represent the Falcons amicably while practicing his faith.The Falcons are in a largely transient city where historically home games sometimes have as many fans of the visiting teams as they do for the home team. Tim Tebow could create many new Falcons fans by just being on the roster.

Denver: They know they don’t want him so they should simply remove the distraction from their team and move on. By sending him to Atlanta, they ensure he is not on their schedule this year and could at least get a 5th or 6th Round draft pick for him. At this point, Elway and John Fox probably see more value in a 6th Round pick than Tebow. Fans may not like it, but the fans are not in charge and as John Fox often told Carolina Panthers‘ fans, “It is what it is.”

Tebow: Yes Tim Tebow has repeatedly said that it is his dream to be a quarterback in the NFL. Langston Hughes once asked “What happens to a dream deferred?” and perhaps Tim should ask himself that same question. He can go the way of so many other Heisman Trophy Winning Quarterbacks in the NFL and slip quietly into obscurity; see Chris Weinke, Eric Crouch, Andre Ware and fellow Gator Danny Wuerffel. Or he can blaze his own trail in a new position in the NFL. He can prove that he is still the ultimate competitor, team-player and winner we all saw in Gainesville. By not coming in as a quarterback, there would be much less pressure because the Falcons are already a winning team and he would return to his fan and media support system in the South.

You think people love him now?

Imagine the praise he would get for “adjusting to a lesser role to help the team.”

This is probably the WORST idea i ever heard of personnel wise for the falcons, on so many many levels. This and bringing YKW back as a Falcon.

Got rid of the negative on your post.

I do think that Tebow would be exactly, character-wise, what TD looks for in a player. I would only be for making a move like that if he came cheap AND he can show that he can do well in other positions; Otherwise he is a glorified project player. He would have to rework the contract also I would imagine.

Tebow deserrves a chance to prove if he is a studd or a dud. We can not offee him that chance. The is no reason to think he would be agood TE or FB or that he wants to be. I am sure Denver would let him try out as a TE if he wanted to. Most likely he will get another shot as a QB either at Denver or a team in need of a QB. I am sure the OP is a Tebow fan and thats fine but the Falcons are not a good fit.

Tebow was projected as a TE in the NFL.

Just because some idiot drafted him as a QB in the first round,,,,,,,,,,

Bring him in as a TE and I will have no issue with that.

But let him get cut and stay at home for a year so we can get his azz on the cheap.

Awwww, heII, Oakland is going to sign Tebow before we can bring him in for a look anyway.
