I think most people will agree Tim Tebow does not have a professional caliber arm, however he is an outstanding athlete. He weighs 235 or more and has decent speed. What would happen if he is cut loose by the Jets and the Steelers pick him up and use him as a slash? It seems to me he is tough enough to block, run, and catch the ball and even throw it on an option if needed.

I don't think of him as a starting QB but could be a great asset that makes defenses guess what he will do. For that matter he could be used as a decoy. I would much rather have him than Chris Rainey.

Just a thought

Stop thinking. We are not bringing that cornball to our team. Ever. In any fashion.

I agree that his skill set could add something to the team, but I'm with the other guys, if he was a humble below the radar type player than it would be worth looking at, but as the guys so eloquently put it, Da Burgh just isn't the place for a drama queen, that being said you gotta admit he does seem to play with heart/determination something our current players need to look up in the dictionary!!!!

I have banned myself from any Tebow talk. Being a Gators fan, it's impossible for me to be unbiased. I will always love that man (no homo).

If the Steelers were a stable team, I would be ok with bringing him in. However, they have so many holes to fill, they do not need anymore story-lines. I like the guy - he is a winner. Not a drama queen. It's not his fault the media went so bat-**** crazy about him.

He would be great in a slash role. Unfortunately, you never want your second string QB to be that polarizing. It would bring too much drama to the team.

Yeah,no for our team but he'd be a solid pick up for Jacksonville who could use his local
god like status to bolster attendance and give that team some life. If he doesn't succeed
there then he might as well give up or try the CFL.

I have always hated Tebow......But I do find it funny that the Donkey's get rid of him and bring in Peyton for a shot at the Super Bowl but Peyton only got them as far as Tebow did...lol Feel bad for Tebow in a way.......The Jets had no clue to use him and I don't think Tebow would be a good fit in Pittsburgh......

he could be a player that rushes and catches 20 TDs in a season....but he doesnt want to be that player.

Hes gonna bounce around and be the talk of the sport networks and QB controversies until he becomes the most coveted broadcaster between all the networks

No, they don't need the media circus. Tebow time is nearly over let him fade away into mediocrity in peace.

I stated he would not fit in Pittsburgh, I also stated he at least plays with some fire/determination, which I didn't see out of many of our players this year. Like jdehoff83 posted, maybe a backup TE or the emergency QB, it's just not gonna happen in Da Burgh. And I will stand corrected he's not a drama queen he's just way over hyped, the media jumped on him as being this perfect christian athlete role model and ran with it.

I think that's spot on. He still sees himself as a starting QB. And can you blame him? He got a chance to start in Denver, and all he did was win. It wasn't pretty at times, but wins are wins. And unlike Manning, he won a playoff game, playing his best game of the year to boot.

Agreed.

We do need a backup and he is an OK quarterback, probably would learn a thing or too from Ben, but being a Gator hater, I'm not a fan of his but I don't hate him either.

I think its safe to say none of us think he is a starting QB in the league. But when given the chance he did win games. Talk bad about his ability to read defenses and his throwing style all you want, but at the end of the day when given the chance the guy just wins, and isnt that all any team could ask for?

The real problem is the media circus that follows him. I think he would be a decent utility guy who can pass, run, catch, block. I think the QB controversy last yr was because Sanchez is garbage. But if he came to a team with a legit #1 QB like Ben or Brady etc that wouldnt happen, he would be a viable #2 QB that we could put in for situational purposes, but you have to utilize him the right way which the Jets did not at all.

It will never happened, but i wouldnt mind him on the Steelers if the price was right and they actually had a legit game plan for him. He has heart, the desire to win, (which the steelers didnt have this yr) and isnt a constant problem unless you screw him constantly like the jets did like skipping over him to start the 3rd string QB.

I'll probably get slammed for it, but id take a chance on him, given the right price and circumstance.

He'd be a better backup QB then anyone we had this yr, as i think hes easily better then byron and charlie (now that charlie is old)

Absolutely not!! Great guy but let him join another team that wishes to have controversy and maybe sell some more jerseys.
