    I don't think he's fast or elusive enough to be a running back, to be honest. He's got decent speed, but he's more of a strength guy. I'd have him play TE.

      I think it's worth a shot. Remember, Tebow ran the ball 22 times against the Chargers in SD last season during the win.

          I've alway wondered how Tebow might work out on defense.....

            I honestly feel this is smoke and mirrors to get NE to waste time planning for something that won't happen.

              Well, they are without McKnight and Powell their #2/3 RB's, so it could happen for a few plays to give Greene a breather....

                he will get shut down as a running back,mark my words. i don't understand why they don't use him as the QB in all short yardage situations and on the goaline? tebow needs the threat of the pass to be effective running the ball, just as a runner he is too slow.

                  oh, well that makes more sense i guess. i can see them doing it if they don't have anyone else healthy.

                    I've always thought that the "Tebow should be a TE" talk was overstated, and quite frankly, a little baffling. Eventually he would probably be pretty good at it if he practiced enough, but the TE skillset involves blocking and pass catching. Tebow's strength is his running ability. Making him a TE would be a waste of his talent and I know of nothing other than his God given athletic ability that says that he would be even remotely proficient at the TE position. IIRC Tony Gonzales went off on this subject and claimed that TE was the most difficult position to learn and master other than the QB. And I tend to agree with him.

                    Tebow as a TE? NO! But, as a (power-style) running back... there could be something there. He isn't the fastest guy in the world, but he's exceptional at reading blocks and lowering his shoulder for the tough yards. But, like Jet said, this could be a feint too.

                    I'd still like to see it though.

                      Plus Tebow told him he'd show him his feet if he got him in the game a little more often.

                        Neither was Jerome Bettis....Some backs will evade you others will run you into the ground, Tebow's of the later mold.

                          Some laughed at Tebow as PP. Now, some scoff about RB. Watch out for HB Pass a la Paul Hornung.

                            I don't know, Rex Ryan is bad at making smokescreen. If this is a joke, it'd be very obvious.

                            I'd say FB, kinda like John Kuhn. He isn't fast, but is big and strong.

                              If it's about the injuries, then it makes perfect sense to put Tebow in at RB for a few plays.

                                Confirmed that Tebow has taken no reps at RB. No more of a story than there's ever been. A reporter asked Rex if it was possible Tebow would play RB, because the Jets are down to 2 RB's due to injuries. He answered "it's always a possibility."

                                Translation -- non-story. Tebow wouldn't be well suited for RB.

                                The O'Connell thing, though -- that has had me wondering all week.
