Unfortunately, I don't think Tebow is going to play QB in the NFL for much longer and if he refuses to make the position change. I think he will be out of the league.

Here is why.

No coach is willingly going to design an offense exclusively for Tim Tebow in the offseason and actually go into the season with that as their primary gameplan (except maybe McDaniels)

If John Fox wasn't willing to do it after actually winning a playoff game with the system and neither is Rex Ryan. Then no one is.

So that rules him out as being a starter.

No team with a questionable starting QB is going to bring him in as a back up because of the media nightmare that comes with it. Your starting QB falters even a little, everyone is going to be calling for Tebow.

So that rules out even more teams.

Now we get to teams with good QBs that have a 0% chance of having a QB controversy.

In your back up QB you want a crisp, smooth passer that can carve up vanilla practice defenses. You want a guy that can get your back up WRs into a rhythm and maybe even get your starters into a rhythm if the starter has to sit out a day.

Tim Tebow is an absolutely terribly practice QB. He completes (allegedly) less than 40% of his practice passes. That is NOT going to get your team into a rhythm and puts you at a disadvantage going into Sunday.

As a pure backup you want a guy like Luke McCown, Kyle Orton, Dan Orlovsky, or Rex Grossman.

They aren't the answer and can't produce well for more than 1 or 2 games at a time.

However, they can throw pretty spirals in practice and get your guys into a rhythm and point out defensive reads mid-game.

Tebow can't do those things.

Also, teams with an elite QB are not going to take them off the field for any snaps to run some cute wildcat packages with their backup.

So that rules out being the back up for teams with an elite QB.

So where does that leave Tebow in this league?

Right.

So he doesn't show enough in practice to replace Mark Sanchez.

Who is arguably the worst starting QB in the NFL

Credit to the guy for trying but he just doesn't have it.

His teammates even hate him. Tim Tebow has become the laughing stock of the league as most people knew would happen eventually. He's a garbage QB who the Jets are now regretting trading for. He's absolutely worthless to the Jets, hell, he hurts the team.

This guy won't be in the NFL much longer.

I would love to hear Java's thoughts on the topic.

He thinks Rex Ryan is a great coach and Tim Tebow is great, yet Rex Ryan thinks Tebow blows **CENSORED**.

There just isn't a role for him as a QB.

It doesn't exist

It's not even about that.

It is the fact he doesn't have a role as an NFL QB.

He cannot operate in a traditional offense and he is too poor in practice to even be useful as a scout team QB.

I used to think Rex Ryan was a good head coach.   But if he doesn't have the common sense to start Tebow, then he's not that good after all.    He'll be fired soon enough if he doesn't wise up quick and start Tebow.   

Tebow is a winner.

Never really liked Sanchez.   Just think he's better than Freeman.   I still think that.   Sanchez would light it up on the Bucs given the Bucs supporting cast.

Tebow is a winner.

Historically, no one can disagree with you there.

But no NFL HC is willing to stake his job on a Tebow offense unless he absolutely has to.

If he will never be a starter and lacks the passing prowess to be an asset as a back up.

Then where does that leave him?

I don't get why they gave up a 3rd rounder for Tebow... kind of odd.

They gave a 4th rounder for Tebow.   The owner likes him.
