A guy like Tebow should just be happy to make an NFL team. If he was smart, he would take any suggestions as far as moving to a different position.

Does Timmy think NFL GM's will forget about his mechanical flaws and draft him because he's a great human being? Best of luck to him in the NFL but I see his NFL career following along the lines of Andre Ware, Heath Shuler, Cade Mcnown, Akili Smith, etc. These guys were supposed to be can't miss prospects. He already has many doubters. Maybe he proves everyone wrong. Who knows.

Tebag is getting $160 bucks for his autograph, he is an icon in the state of Florida. He should be happy with what he has and achieved as a Gator, face the fact THAT HE WILL BE A MAJOR BUST as a QB in the NFL and cash in on what he did. He could run for Governor and win.

I don't think it makes much difference, College Football or NFL. If I were a Head Coach, or Owner, I'd like to have about a DOZEN Tim Tebow's. Some of the "BOZO's" playing football are a disgrace.(Sometimes they have to go get them out of jail so they can have a game) Tim Tebow is an extremely fine young man, who is totally commited to his vocation, and his convictions. He will be a "CREDIT" to the NFL,(not an EMBARRASSMENT)
as so many of those BOZO's now on the NFL payroll. I am a devoted Buckeye Fan, NOT a Gator Fan. But as you can see, I think Tim Tebow is one of the finest young men to EVER play Football, and he's a damn good player.

If nothing else, he might be able to salvage some of the derelict players on his team. His attitude should be welcome in any locker room!

Tebow will not make it as a NFL QB.

Remember we are not cheering for these athelets because they are super christian or super nice guys. We cheer because the rip peoples heads off, or because they ru nlike the wind, or throw a perfect spiral. lets be realistic here. Pro Athletes have been anoited by us the fan, i have no other expectations of them beyond the playing field. To do so is idiotic.

the real inspiration to athletes should by myron roole out of Florida State. He is a Rhoades Scholar and one helluva football player. And for those of you who wants a moral leader. yep he is one of those as well.

Tebow will be an average football player in the NFL. he needs to change positions

I agree completely, move to a tight end or wide receiver and take his shot there. He won't make it as a QB.

Off the Shelf, I couldn't agree with you more. His attitude will take Tebow far. If he can't make it at quaretback, he is smart enough to try another position. But in the end he will no doubt hear, "Well done my good and faithful servant." And that is the ultimate prize.

Speaking of the fall of the Roman Empire, you might "enjoy" THE NEW EMPIRE OF DEBT by Wm. Bonner. It deals with how the US is failing like all previous empires.

Tim Tebow will be sucessful at whatever he chooses to do throughout his entire life. I suspect he will play QB in the NFL and play that position very well. Remember whebn everybody bad-mouthed Mike Tomczak. Tomczak went undrafted out of college and signed as an original free agent with the Chicago Bears. Then went on to play 18 years with five different teams with about 75 starts and over 16,000 passing yards. Not bad for essentially being an NFL walk-on. Tim Tebow's QB skill set may need some improvement but his on and off the field leadership, and personal character are impeccalbe. Whichever team gets Tebow will be very lucky to have this young football gladiator.

To quote Tebow from your column

"My prayer is I get with another organization, just like Florida, that invests in me and gives me an opportunity to get better and I can be around great coaches and great teammates. That's all I can ask."

With that in mind, where might he end up?

You could have a dozen Mother Teresas on your team but you wouldn't win games. The NFL has nothing to do with character as we know by watching their long-term approach to steroids and head injuries. The NFL is a business that has to produce results to make money. Timmy is not going to be a money making player.

Agreed. You want kids that build character off the field and bring the team together in college football, but forget about it in the NFL. This kid will be doing his usual "God Bless" on his interviews, and get his head torn off by the likes of Ray Lewis in the NFL. That stuff doesn't matter in the NFL, it is all about who is the best at their position and Tim Tebow is not anywhere near the best at QB. If he doesn't take into consideration exploring other positions, he will have a strong future in the CFL or Europe. Not here in the NFL.

I, for one, have no idea what you're saying or the meaning of it, particularly regarding this article. They are debating whether Tebow has the skills to play QB. From that you derive that Amcerica is crumbling like Rome. Man you got some issues....

I don't understand why people have ranked Jimmy Clausen higher then Tim Tebow as an NFL QB. Jimmy Clausen has proved nothing! He didn't do anything great in college. Tebow won 2 NT, a Heisman, and many other awards. Jimmy Clausen couldn't even beat Navy this year. I think that Tebow can make it as a QB. He wants to play QB so he'll work his butt off till he can.

I don't see Tebow going on the first day. He can win every award in college football but
#1. he got hurt
#2. he throws off to the side and with the size of NFL linemen/linebackers you run the risk or interceptions and knockdowns.
#3. His numbers when he came back and was healthy was "luke warm"
I'd take Colt McCoy over Tebow any given Sunday.

And the truth comes to light! You are a holy roller, that is why you are obsessed with Todd Boeckman and it shows with your support of Tim Tebow. I just found the basis for all your arguments. Now I know there is no reason to talk football with you. Thank you.
