Tebow would be better off as a drug-free/ natural bodybuilder and sports commentator.

As it happens, he ain't my favorite person. He's uptight and a little too perfect. Still, no person is simply a hate-object, even if you want to make Tebow into some kind of punching bag for your own frustrations.

Tebow has too slow a delivery to be anything more than a backup. He is an honorable man, but simply nothing better than a possible NFL fringe player. Perhaps he could succeed at a different position.

Michael Vick might have another year or two at the most left in him and considering that the Raiders are in a state of rebuilding, I would say no to him except as a potential backup.

Pryor as the starter, yes to adding Vick and Tebow. Dynamism. All 3 at once. All are outstanding runners, with different running styles, strengths. All should be able to throw, block, run and catch. Seahawks ran more than they threw last year. Vick and Tebow would cost no picks, just money. If you don't like Vick and/or Tebow, there are a lot of QBs that would fit in this run first system this year in the draft. Logan Thomas as Tebow / FB / TE. They measure speed of passes with a radar gun at the combine. Logan Thomas throws 60 mph. Highest at the combine since 2008 if not longer. Jordan Lynch, Taylor Martinez instead of Vick, RB, WR. Spend the picks on getting mulitple offensive line guys who can run block. Greg Robinson, Cyril Richardson, Gabe Jackson.

Good call. Concur that Tebow and Vick are less than ready to be starting QBs. Too bad neither of them had a QB guru like Norv Turner to turn them into legit starters. Vick is getting on in years while Tebow is more a media creation than a player. They both have skills that need upgrading. Vick needs to work on the muscles between his ears while Tebow needs physical improvements. Tebow has more time but it doesn't look good for either of them.
All players should learn from both these guys. Every QB wannabie should have a thorough evaluation made of their talents and performances. Then find the technicians that can move them in the right direction. Once they plateau it's time to find other technicians who can finish the transition to starting QB or accept that it is never going to happen and accept being a backup is the best they can hope for. Doing the same things over and over without progress yet expecting better results is a fools game.
