    In recent news on ESPN, it was reported that the Packers, Lions, and Vikings might be interested in drafting Tebow during the middle rounds of the draft.   Believing he has all the intangibles to be a great qb in the league.  now assuming for a moment this is true, do you think he would be a good fit for any of these teams?

    Tebow might be a fit for Minnesota, if the Vikes gets another quality starting receiver. And since he has worked with Percy Harvin at Florida, both would already have the connection.
    Minnesota with Peterson have the running game to allow Tebow to develop with not having to force passing.
    And if Favre comes back one more year (and I think Favre will) he would have a tremendous mentor.

    Packers have their franchise QB with Rodgers. Lions have Stafford and are trying to develop him. I could see friction there between the two young QBs.

    If, and big if, Chicago could get their running game back on track and rebuild their defense to their dominating ways, Nahhhh...Tebow learning from Cutler would not be a good idea. lol

      yeah, i agree with you there.  i seriously doubt the packers and lions are serious about tebow, as they already have qbs for the future.  plus, having tebow around would only create a qb controversy due to all the press he's getting.  That's why it wouldn't make any sense.

      As for the bears, I think your right also.  however, another thing to point out about them is that  they have a horrible coaching staff. just look at the  players who left their teams, that are doing so much better than they were on the bears.  Kyle Orton was a mediocre qb for the bears, and became a fairly decent qb for denver. where as jay cutler, he was a potential pro bowler, but now he's a over rated player.  that can't be coincidental.  therefore, i think chicago should really find a new coach if you ask me.

      as far the vikings go....i'm right with you there brother.  the vikings would be a perfect fit for him.  since he wouldn't start right away, as it looks like favre is likely to come back.  plus, for all the other reasons you mentioned.  i think that would the perfect place for him.

    Tim who?

    Without the constant barrage of Tebow news and his upcoming selection to Sainthood by the Pope, I guess I just forgot about him!

      I know what you mean. I watched some of the NFL combine on TV and all they want to talk about is Tebow. You would think as professional analysts they would remember there are thousands of other potential NFL players there.

        I don't keep up with the latest in the NFL but the mock drafts I did see had him going in the second round, you would think someone like Suh would command more interest in the news.

          Suh is awesome like a machine! I have heard he may go 1st or 2nd.  If the Rams stick with 1st pick, they should take Bradford. They have to have a QB.

          I am not sure about Colt McCoy. Haven't seen enough of him to know all about him.  Stats say he is a winner, but his height is an issue. But, look at Brees.

            McCoy predicted late 1st or early 2nd but who knows, I don't really care his college career is over and thats all I watch!
