Default Would you want Tebow back if Jets would trade him back fr their 4th and 6th round picks if he agreed

to play any position the Broncos asked of him?

Maybe MLB or TE?

You might be surprised how many would see that as a good deal for us. As long as it was clear he was not a QB there would be no destructive Tebowmania

Most of the Teboners now either pretend they weren't ever Teboners or are in hiding.

Did you change the thread title to mention the 4th and 6th rounders, or am I just losing my mind?

Meh. I was a "Teboner" last year, during the Streak.

Remember the Streak?

I'm sure not hiding. Or pretending I wasn't in Timmah's corner last year.

Thing is, 'Teboners" came in several flavors:

- the "Super Teboner": either a) a Gator fan who ported over to Bronco Nation in the spring of '10, or b) some flavor of hyper Christian, falling into the sin of idolatry.

These "Super Teboner" "fans" really fit the definition: "fanattics". They were (and are) the noisy minority, the ones that can still be heard chanting "Tebow.. Tebow!!" in the background of Jets telecasts.. They'll never go away, but they're really quite harmless..

- the majority of us "Teboners" were pessimistically optimistic, and "bought in" as the Streak lumbered into it's second month. At the end of the day, the kid just kept on finding a way. Hi teammates bought in, the vast majority of Bronco Nation bought in.

It was fun.

Tebow has no place here, but he would fit better as a back up in a place that already runs a version of the zone read, such as Seattle or 49ers, just to name two off the top of my head.

! Dude, you aren't getting Tebow back. It was obvious Elway wanted nothing to do with Tebow style of play. He got what he wanted in manning and Brock. I can't believe you are going this route. Those picks are going to improve the team, Tebow isn't going to improve the team.
If he isnt playing QB, what experience does he have at that position? He isn't worth it. Now if he was released and you wanted to try him out at a position not called QB, I would still say it wouldnt happen.

Are you high?

We were able to rid ourselves of that disease, why would we want it back?

The Jets would have to be offering US picks before I would consider it

Agree with this. He is not going to get that opportunity here. So no.

Agree with this. I haven't seen any amazing TE skills so far.

I see what you're thinking, but the circus would still occur. Tebow still believes he is a QB only. He doesn't want to play a different position. Because of that and the Tebow over team fans it would cause way too much crap

Technically, that's all he asked too.

no, the media baggage that comes with him, the rabid "he just needs a chance fans" and the way his departure played out would be bad for the team.

the only project we need is Brock.

Would rather have 4th and 6th round picks. His media circus would distract from next year's primary goal.

That being said, I think the kid deserves a legit shot somewhere.

I would rather have a midget uppercut me in the groin, than bring the circus back to town.

Ironically many circus fans are into the midget boxing as well. Win win.

Good deal? We're 11-3 with no drama in the lockerroom or the media. I fail to see any positive that would come out of it. He's not worth a late rounder if he's changing to a position he's never played before. I'd rather have that for a college kid who's played his position all his short life

If it were clear he was not to play the QB position there would be no circus - that will have run it's course.

Not saying I want it. That 4th round pick will be pretty high but I would love to see it Tebow can play MLB. God knows we need one.

Even if it were clear to him and he accepted a new role, the circus (media and fan) that follows him would not. I'm not so much worried about Manning, but what happens after he retires in a couple of years. The team needs to determine quickly if Brock can be the QBOTF. I wouldn't be surprised if Elway takes another QB high in the draft in either 2013 or 2014. The last thing a young QB needs is to have to deal with a cluster**** like that.
