A slow release and no accuracy is a slow release and no accuracy in any league.

He'll leave when he realizes we barely care about any of our CFL players and most lawyers make more in a year.

In the east yes.  And he would look like a fool trying to run a CFL offence.  Poor mechanics, and decision making do not help when you have a longer wider field with more motion and an extra player on each side to account for.

However, I don't think he could do worse than Troy Smith so far this season...

You're all a bunch of HATERS!  I think it's sad that you want to BASH Tim because of his Christian beliefs.  You'll all be sorry when when Tim becomes a huge star.

Tim is a winner who just wins because Tim is a winner.

Just wanted to remind everyone of what Fark was like a couple years ago.

I'm pretty sure he already played there. I mean, he wrote his memoirs and everything:

Chapter 2
Chapter 3

Shoot, Chapter 4 is supposed to be coming out any day now.

It wasn't, but people loved making that strawman.

It isn't easy to win in the NFL, though, and he did that, though no one could figure out why. I wanted to see him continue at QB just for the sheer "WTF is going on here?" aspect of it. It was funny to watch everyone get enraged and talk about how he's the worst ever even as he kept racking up wins.

Oh well, yeah, he won't do well in other leagues, because both the CFL and AFL are MORE demanding of QBs, not less.

CM Punk is more likely to come back than Tebow. Tebow's going to be a SEC announcer/spokesman for life with a decent side pay getting paid to talk with boosters and southern churches until the next big thing comes along in 10 years. He'd never ruin that to do anything but instant starting QB spot in NFL

Tebow would be a terrible CFL quarterback.  The field is bigger (wider as well as longer) so even standard hashmark to sideline throws are farther than in college and NFL ball.  And there are only three downs ... for the impact that has, don't think "there is no fourth down", rather think "every team with a fresh set of downs starts at 2nd and 10".  You have to be an accurate, consistent passer to succeed in the CFL  -- if you miss an open receiver more often than not it means that drive is over.

That said, Jacksonville should have picked him up a couple of seasons ago and handed him the reins.  It would have boosted ticket sales and merchandise, and would have given Blain Gabbert some time on the sidelines as backup to get his shiat together.  Run a ton of two-tight-end sets with Tebow and MJD in the backfield, and only ask Tebow to throw 15 times a game.  Honestly, it wouldn't have cost the Jaguars any wins or shots at the Superbowl.  It has been pretty obvious for many years that the Jags aren't a danger at winning much.

To state the obvious:  to the extent a league throws more than the NFL, that is worse for TT.  To the extent the athletic standard is lower than the NFL, that is better for TT.  For example, I'm sure he would have dominated me and my friends in our long-ago pick-up games at the local vacant lot, even though we threw on every down.

Tebow was a successful passer at the Division I-A college level.  Is the athletic standard there so much lower than the CFL or AFL?  I really don't know the answer, but it doesn't seem obvious to me that he will fail in a sub-NFL league.

I've always said Tim Tebow would be a dude I'd like to sit back and talk to. I don't agree with his religious or political views, but I bet he would be really cool about the whole discussion. But, run my football team as a QB? Them's fighting words!

Well if they had Tebow, they might not have wasted a first round draft pick on Gabbert. However your approach would basically have sunk the Jags into a guaranteed losing season, even more they normall are, for as long as Tebow was around. As much as I like to rag on the glitter kitties, Shad Kahn at least hired people who look like they might know how to or want to know how to succeed in the NFL.

9-7 record is 'racking up wins' now? Lol

Considering the performance of their current Heisman-winning quarterback, one would think the Alouettes might think twice about picking up another.

He would. And yes, CFL and even AFL players are above FBS college level on the whole, mostly simply due to having played more and getting grown man strong/acquiring veteran moves/skills. He also wouldn't have the huge talent advantage on his team that he did at Florida. Go back and look at that 2007 team and it's full of NFL players.

His stats have nothing to do with being 1 game above .500. He was a horrid pro qb, that got lucky and had a coach that plays not to lose. Slightly better than average is not racking up wins.

As a QB, a lot of people won more than they lost. Not all of them were good QBs. Mark Sanchez is a career .544. Is he a good QB? If you say yes, you're delusional.

Even if he'll almost certainly be terrible, going any place where he's able to get constant reps and live fire game situations is the only way he'd ever somehow maybe sort of kind of improve.

Like I always say: It took Tommy Maddox a decade to learn to throw a ball, but at least when he got back he made a couple memories for Steelers fans and earn a decent paycheck.
 
2014-07-22 02:50:46 AM  
Ah, yes, Tim Tebow. Now, tell me again, how'd he get the "Johnny Football" nickname? Did his high school buddies call him Johnny as a joke or somethin'?

This is so unrealistic. A more accurate portrayal would have the ball ending up in the stands perpendicular to the line of scrimmage for a lucky fan to take home.
