    9,810 passing yards in high school. Throwing for 9,286 yards and 88 TDs in college, completing 67% of his passes in the SEC. I'd say he's been a QB his whole career.

    Brady Quinn completed 53.8% of his passes in the NFL and has more interceptions than TDs. He started 8 games last season, including 7 games without a single TD. 2 TD passes, 8 interceptions. Everyone knows he can't play QB in the NFL, but he still has a job as a backup. No one is asking him to become a punter.

    If guys like Quinn can still throw passes in the NFL, I believe Tebow has the same right.

      I partially agree, and this is to Tebow's credit. He's got great football build. Guys like Quinn don't. Tebow could be a TE or RB if he wanted to. A lot of QB's can only play QB, and that's it. Tim could play other positions if he wanted, and that's why teams asked about it.

        I'm not so sure. There are guys built like TEs and drafted as TEs who struggle in the NFL. Tebow could try. It would not be an easy process and I see the position switch as one more opportunity for people to laugh at someone who's already demoralized. Remember Richard Quinn? What has Julius Thomas done so far? Imagine a QB learning how to block, play with leverage, run routes and catch the ball at the NFL level.

        RB? As a RB, Tebow would be too big and not fast enough. He would have to start from scratch and prove himself all over again. I can easily understand why he does not want to play another position. Completion percentage is nice, but if I had to win a game I'd take Tebow over several QBs in the NFL.

          Tebow isn't any different than any other player that couldn't hack it. What is going on with quins career has nothing to do with Tebow.

          Most importantly, I don't care about his college passing stats. They don't translate to the NFL.

            True, but there are players that used to be QB's that move to other positions and be successful. Antwan Randel El is a good example. He switched to WR and had a good career. I think he could transition to TE, but that doesn't mean he'd be a good one, true.

            I say he would be a decentrunning back too because he reads running lanes and sees blocks very well. He's always been good at that. He'd be a good power option and goal-line threat. That's why teams would ask if he's willing to play a different position. There was one team who called the Jets asking if he wanted to play TE, and the Jets told them no.

              Some people see height/weight and project FB or TE without realizing that job one for those two positions is blocking. If one has never blocked, like Tebow for example, it probably isn't happening.

                  Another aspect brought up before is that when your QB runs the ball you have one more blocker, and Tebow might not be fast/strong/good enough without it.

                  He has had success as a QB, and if someone figures out to get him to play better in the first three quarters he will be elite. When it counts and when it is no guts no glory time he is exceptional. His Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde playing styles creates an enigma. He clearly has the ability to play really well over significant stretches, the question is however why he seldom play well in the first three quarters.

                  I would love to see him back up Jay Cutler, but I think that Tebow will go to a team like Arizona, Saints, Browns, Vikings, Raiders.., or maybe he will be unsigned through training camp and some 0-3 team will pick him up in September.

                    Dk - I could see any of those teams except for Cleveland possibly go for him. The Browns just signed Jason Cambell and traded away Colt McCoy. They also still have Thaddeus Lewis who started a game for them last year too.

                    If any NFL team's gonna get him, I say Arizona mainly because of their offensive line. They added Cooper, but that won't be enough. I think Palmer would eventually get injured due to how bad that line is. Plus, I'd take Tebow over Hoyer, Lindley, or Hill.
