Yo Eng, Wait a damned minute now! I only said it was a logical conclusion and something that BB should/would try. I have never said it would ultimately work, yet you laughed at Me and implied that it was foolish, rediculous, and not worth discussing. So now you ultimately laugh at Bill, a HOF GM and Coach for doing/trying what i suggested, and YOU THINK I'm the one whos open for a beating??? Dude, lets just say I was correct in saying theyd try it when you laughed it off as stupid and leave it at that. Because see, I am already right. Or would you prefer the beating youRe owed for calling me, then Bill crazy for trying it? Your call brutha.
Wait a damned minute now! please point out where I said BB wouldn't try him at that position? I believe what I said was Tebow can't play that position, not that BB wouldn't try him there and appearently you agreed it would be a hard task to convert him unless you don't remember saying:
"Alright, man, my apoligies for being a sarcastic azz. Your pont is taken. I agree 100% with you that it is a tall task."
Tebow's skill set is obvious, but limited. If he could learn to block more consistently he would be great as a up back or PPP. Unfortunately for him, last year, he became a target for blocking the punt and it outweighed any advantage he provided for fake punts.
I think he would have been more successful in the WC last year, if he had been usd more consistently, say for a series or a drive. One play at a time is kinda dumb. TB is not coming out of the game for any non injury reason. He stays in up 40 points late in the fourth, he's surely not going to come out to get Tebow in. In non QB postions, his route running was poor, his decison making as a back was slow and his catching ability was lacking. Other than that, he was great.
A key factor in team success is that EVERYONE is doing their jobs Well. The change from the Jests to the Pats alone gives Tim a better chance to accomplish his tasks at hand. Amazing what confidence in the guy next to him to do his job well will do for Tim. To answer your earlier question, YES, i did play on teams with guys like Tim. What i learned about guys like him was that unless they felt they were critical to the success of the team, they lacked confidence and usually underperformed for lack of the confidence to do so well. Tim has a child's desire for acceptance. Once he feels he belongs, he will excel at what they ask him to do. BB is a master at instilling pride in his players at what they bring to the team. That is how he is able to keep them engaged. Unfortunately the off season allows for time away from his guidance. I had coaches who had the same influence on their players. Tim is a world class athlete who will find his purpose with the Patriots. He was a National Champ and Heismann winner for a reason and Bill will optimize that reason. Bill respects special/versatile athletes and the game of football and those who accomplish major benchmarks within the game. Tebow found the right team, and stragely, we all know it!
