However, he may not be willing to switch positions, and that’s OK. He believes that he is a quarterback, and having that type of ability to stick to things is unique, and definitely a positive. However, if that is how he feels, he should give serious consideration to playing in the CFL.
This, Tebow fans, is not the end of the world either.
Tim Tebow believes that he is a starting quarterback in this league. However, Tim also is a smart guy, and has to understand that the league doesn’t share that viewpoint right now. If it did, he would have opportunities to do just that, but he does not right now. To recover his career he needs to understand this.
But what he also should realize is that IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE OVER FOR HIM. He is only 25 years old right now. He doesn’t have a lot of mileage with all the time he has spent as a backup, it’s not like he is banged up too badly. He can salvage his career, if he uses his head and does it right.
Tim wants to play quarterback, but in the NFL, there are a limited number of opportunities to do so. Whether the scouts like him or not, the fact is just by the amount of teams, there are only so many chances he would have to play quarterback. Given the situation, why not go somewhere where he will have that many more opportunities to do what he loves, that is play quarterback? If he can go up there, with less media pressure than in the states, and fix his game, doesn’t that help him? If he can get hooked up with a great quarterback coach, that can figure out whatever is wrong, Tebow can come back, better than before, and be a starting quarterback in this league.
For anyone that thinks going to the CFL is the end of a career, talk to Warren Moon. He couldn’t get a job in the NFL, he went to Canada, and now is in the Hall of Fame of both the CFL and the NFL. It can help.
That is my prescription for Tim Tebow. He can fix his career, taking one of these two options.
