Thanks for your input. It is great to have CFLers here and contributing and hope that you will continue to do so.
With that being said as we saw today the Read Option is here and will become common place sooner then most people think IMO. I wouldn't mind having a QB like that to help reduce Jay's beatings.
I don't know but were four or five active TEs needed either when you seldom threw to them? If a guy can keep drives alive and score TDs from inside the five then yeah he'd have a spot on my roster.
Besides with Tebow's size you can almost use him as a "move" TE as well when you aren't in those situations. I'm not saying we should sign Tebow no matter what he costs us or how we use him I'm just saying he's a guy who could be used that way in a very non-traditional NFL sense.
If it wasn't for his ultra Christian background and following he's the kind of guy Oakland could make use of but I think he'd be a bad fit there just because that. He's a good enough football player and athlete that somebody should figure out a way to use him more effectively than has has been.
Damn, now I want Clutts back :drinking61:
You know by seasons end ERod was doing alright at FB and I think Trestman will make far better use of him in the passing game than Tice did. He came in as a "move" TE type of guy but he learned how to become a decent blocking back. I like his ability to learn a new position and he could be a big part of the offense in the coming years if he continues to progress.
Where was McManis all year? Besides a few nice ST plays, he was buried on the CB depth chart and then IR'd.
If ERod continues to come on as a FB/H-back then it won't matter for the future, but I still say it was at the time a (small scale) DUMB MOVE.
How is it that we came to be talking about the trade of Clutts for McManis in a thread about Tim Tebow?
I call :thread jacked:
