    Before anyone laughs at me (ok, I know... too late), I was looking for Chicago bears rumors and came across this website. I'm not going to lie. I've always liked Tebows work ethic and his ethics. I think a strong work ethic and being s good person goes a long way in life and your work. The problem is that you also need to have talent and that is where Tebow has always been questionable.

    But one thing bothered me. Guys that had accomplished less than he had (I mean as lousy as his mechanics were, he still started and won 7 games in Denver and a playoff game. Guys that had not done that were at least getting gigs and being allowed to fail on the job. Tebow got a gig with the jets, but never really a chance. I do think he got a fair shot in NE, and I think those guys are an excellent judge of QB's and they dropped him pretty quick, so he has serious issues with mechanics that no one can deny.

    Anyway, to make a short story even longer, I saw this site and there was a little video with it, and honestly, I kind of got a little excited about him. Believe it or not, I'd actually like to see Trestman bring him in and see what he has learned. We can always drop him like NE did.

    Am I just stupid? I mean even more than the average day?

    The reason why Tebow doesn't have a job is because of the circus it creates, not skills.

    yeah, I think it has been, but it seems to have subsided. But I don't think he has been noted for the best QB skills either. He is a hard worker, tenacious and makes things happen through force of will, but he just does not have the passing accuracy that you need. After watching that video though, I'm wondering if he is not well enough along that he might not be worth looking at.

    The only reason it's subsided is because he's no longer in the NFL. Bring him back and it'll start all over again. I saw that circus here in Denver when the whole town wanted Tebow for awhile. He stirs up emotional frenzy and polarity like you won't believe. He's also not a good NFL QB especially not in Trestman's offense. In order for him to succeed you'd have to build an entire offense around his strengths and style of play and no NFL coach will risk that.

    No, that would not be worth it. He would have to come in and perform under Trestman's offense. If he could, great. We need a good backup QB. If not, no way we change our offense for a backup QB. Then we move on.

    fixed it for you. when w/NYJ's Rex was doing an interview on the sidelines and a ball came whipping at his feet, turned around at it was a Tebow pass. The guy cannot read a Def or learn a playbook(arguably b/c of his learning disability) and cannot throw the ball, he's not RusWil he's awful.

    The Pats pretty much took him for gimmick plays, there answer to the Dolphins off balance line a few yrs back.

    If he fixes his mechanics and can't handle the mental aspect, then he is done no doubt.

    This article is a list of excuses why Tebow has failed as an NFL QB and none of those reasons were directed at him. Oh, he's been working on his fundamentals last year and it's all fixed? You would think he'd have worked on those sooner than when he was out of the NFL if they were fixable.

    Here's the line that really made me scoff:

    "Tebow will be able to come in and work with Trestman one-on-one to help him improve his game."


    No. No he won't. As a #2 or #3, he will be ignored by Trestman. The Bears coaching staff will have plenty to do getting their 54 million dollar guaranteed QB prepared to succeed in year 2 of the Trestman era. What the Bears are looking for is a cheap, self-teaching backup QB that needs no handholding and minimal reps. They do not have the time or the luxury to buy hand puppets and put on a puppet show to try and teach Tebow the plays.
