Turning down jobs.

Post by Tiosylanyl »

The Messiah that is.
Tim Tebow, looking for a job after being released by the New England Patriots, refused to change positions after an NFL team expressed interest in him, according to a report by Peter King of Sports Illustrated.

Tim Tebow reportedly turned down a request to play a position other than QB. Should he switch? Cast your votes!
The report didn't say which team approached Tebow.

In addition to maintaining a strong desire to remain a quarterback, Tebow turned down an offer to play in the Canadian Football League. USA Rugby even came calling, King reported. The report also said that Tebow would return to the NFL only if given the chance to play quarterback.

And from the comments...
Tebow saying he is an NFL Qb reminds me of Happy Gilmore saying he was a hockey player.
Doesn't surprise me, virgins don't know how to change positions.

As long as be insists on trying to be a QB I agree with that sentiment. However, get him to move to RB or possibly TE (not sure how good he is at catching the ball) I think there's a chance he could have a halfway decent career in the NFL.

In response to those questions, Patriots Football Weekly reports have basically asked rhetorically when, ever, has Tebow shown an ability to catch a ball? To run a route? They particularly condemn the TE speculations because this is a position "you don't just 'pick up!'" Of course, that proves a point not worth mooting if he is too stubborn to consider change.

He will not be a starting NFL QB. Another "Talking Head"--Peter "I Love EVERYONE!" King methinks--suggested that if he had a full offseason with a team that catered to his special needs, designed an offense around him, blah . . . blah . . . then "who knows?"

Bullshit.

What team is going to waste that time when this is clearly a passing league. Even "running QBs" have the threat to throw. Tebow really does not. How is a team going to just "pick up" the pieces he "needs?" To begin, he needs a strong defense since you cannot expect him to just outscore good opponents. Sure. Go to Walmart . . . NFL top five defenses are in a bin I think.

Frankly, the NFL has a pile of discarded "Heisman" and "Number One" QBs who were better but could still not cut it in the NFL. The only reason anyone cares is his religious preaching.

I predict he will agree with that, but call it something else.

Such as being called to preach.

Part I find annoying is the number of times he gets in the paper up here as maybe coming to the CFL.

Seems every time Tebow farts down there, some reporter or another is anointing him the starting role in Montreal. He would suck up here much worse than he does down there but he still gets in the news.

I was going to make a joke, "Well, there's always arena football," and reality has beat me to the punchline:

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/eye-on-foo ... a-football

LA KISS offer Tim Tebow contract to play arena football

But even that's old news.
KISS' offer isn't the first time Tebow's been offered an indoor football contract. The Omaha Beef offered Tebow a contract in April, that same month, Tebow also got an offer from the Lingerie Football League to be the LFL's 'National Quarterback Coach.

See that? The man is a Christian and the Devil tries to tempt him with the perfect gig (other than preacher) for getting lots of pussy. Or is women's football like tennis? :notsure:

I imagine those ladies are already well familiar with men who have no idea what to do in the pocket, who then scramble from the pocket only to throw uselessly and short.

LOL, that'd be a friggin joke. The CFL is even MORE of a passing league than the NFL.

Apparently it is. Talking Heads Who Know have slammed down the "he will make it in Canada" claims because of that.

I suppose he can make Montreal more hated than Vancouver if that is possible.

I'd be happy if he ended up in Montreal, as a Bombers fan. But, yeah. He would suck even worse in the NFL.

Of course, because then you could point and laugh at him, and since he's American, you'd feel better about yourselves and start flying your country's flag right-side up again.

At 3:16 p.m. yesterday, a group of Jacksonville Jaguars fans organized a rally to make Tim Tebow the team’s quarterback. The event got national media coverage.

Here is a photo of the actual rally:
