Wait...so you'd rather have Rex Grossman as our 3rd stringer?
I'll answer this one! No, we don't want Rex as our 3rd stringer. What we want is a developmental QB who we can teach the NFL game and who we can hopefully have ready to step in as RGIII's backup if we're fortunate enough to trade Cousins for an early draft pick next year or the year after. Tebow is NOT that player. He's not a QB and would be a waste of a roster spot from that perspective. I'd rather see us draft a project QB late in the draft or pick one up in UDFA. One that has potential, but needs to sit for a year or two. Let him sit and learn from RGIII and Cousins and then have him ready to step up when Cousins leaves the team via trade or at the end of his contract.
BTW I would like to point out that we had our 3rd string QB active on game day what? 1-3 times all year? If we have to activate Tebow to use him 1-5 times a game, that means we'll have one less OL, DL, LB, WR, CB, Special teamer, etc on the active roster. Me personally, I don't think Tebow brings enough to the game to keep him active during game days. It's a waste of a roster spot in my opinion.
Now if he was willing to play FB full time or TE full time, then I can see signing him to a vet minimum contract and let him prove myself at one of those spots during training camp. But in no way shape or form would I allow him to throw the ball. The guy sucks as a passer and the sooner you folks get that through your heads, the better off we'll all be.
Anyway, again, lets just say no to the media circus that is Tim Tebow. We don't need him and he'd just disrupt the chemistry this team started to develop late in the season.
Wolf, tebow has only played 3 years, give him time to develop (at the right price which is the league minimum). Why not roll the dice on a guy who has proven he can take a team to the playoffsTwo reason's Sampson.
If we trade Kirk Cousins I would be all for it. I think both guys will have 10 year careersBTW If we do trade Cousins, which won't happen this year, because of RGIII's injury concerns, I would much rather have a 3rd string QB that has a chance of being a quality spot starter and backup next year. Tebow will never be that guy. Hence my post above about drafting a project QB that will be ready next year when we trade Cousins.
He has no future in the NFL as a QB. I really wish people would wake up and realize that.you are 100% right why would anyone want a young backup QB who has won 70% of his NFL starts including leading his team to the playoffs with a win over the Steelers.

Tebow's record as a starter in the NFL is 8-6 and 1-1 in the playoffs that's 9-7, hardly a 70% winning percentagewhat was he in his last season in denver? he took over a what 0-4 team went 8-4 (plus 1-1) in the playoffs
I don't want to get into all this again with you BSamso don't
Only problem is he brings that circus to townthis is the Redskins...when is the circus not in town? how many news stories have you seen about RG3 and will he/won't he be ready for week 1.
My point is that IF RG3 won't be ready I'd still roll with Cousins but instead of Grossman being back there I'd rather have Tebow
The one thing about Tebow is as horrible of a thrower he is he can be an effective runner in the play-action and pistol and read-option O.so if you are agreeing with me, then why are you arguing with me?

What I have said is that you have a talented young QB who fits your offense and has proven he can win.Once again Sampson, you just continue to prove you know nothing.
Sign him as a FullBack.your idea is to dump darrell young and have a QB lead block for the #2 rusher in the NFL?
Utilize his power running.the guy has never taken a handoff but you want to utilize him primarily as a runner?
