I'll say no, because he wouldn't be able to wear #15 as that is retired for Bart Starr, the third greatest Quarterback in Packers history.

I think some packages for Tim Tebow would be enticing and if anyone could get the young man throwing a spiral and fix his throwing motion it would be the Packers. Also, Tebow has lost 10 pounds in hopes of improving. The guy is a very solid football player.

Tim Tebow replace John Kuhn? Imagine the possibilities with fakes on the Punt team if Tebow were the protector?

No he can't. He's too small to be a Punt protector.

Dude, you are out of the box off the chain...

It certainly is interesting to think about. As you mentioned, the options defenses would have to account for with him lined up as a FB would be kind of ridiculous. Might be worth exploring.

I've thought about how we could use him before, and what his coming to GB might bring. Huge negativity with regards to the circus atmosphere, and his inability to throw a decent ball. But, the guy brings some definite intangibles, ones that could be put to good use with the right staff and scheming. Green Bay would not be a bad place for him to land. I cringe a little, but I believe this to be true.

He IS a helluva football player, just not a QB.
He is a player without a position.
Perhaps the circus atmosphere would go away if he was in tiny Green Bay.
I just cringe at the thought that if the circus came with him it would negatively affect the team.

If he's cheap and if he replaces Kuhn, yeah, Go For It. But I very much doubt they will do that.

Last season maybe.. this season.. not. Harrell and Coleman have another year under their belt.. I expect decent growth from Coleman this off season.

Couple that with the media crush.. albeit I think much of that has faded greatly. But it will still bring a certain amount of circus-ness with it. Not needed.

I still think though, with the right QB coach.. he could become a decent QB.. 2nd stringer with the ability to bring gadget plays that a legitimate NFL OC could utilize. Jets don't have that.. period.
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

If they grab him, you know what. I would not mind it!

Tim Tebow is still young, we got one of the best QB coached teams in the NFL. Let him groom under Aaron Rodgers who throws one of the best balls you will ever see.

What's the knock on Tim Tebow? He can't throw the football. Well Mike McCarthy and Tom Clements can teach him the fundamentals to throw the football.
I think Tebow brings more to the table than Graham Harrell or B.J. Coleman. Also this isn't New York . This is Green Bay. He will be shielded from all that shit. But seriously do you think Tim Tebow is trying to win a job away from Mark Sanchaz here? No he will back up Aaron Rodgers and has the chance to improve as a player.

Imo he will go to Jacksonville. Compete with Blaine Gabbert and Arods wittle bro Jordan Rodgers.

If the Packers decide to bring him.. no I will not complain... if ESPN wouldn't run 24/7 with the Tebow angle.. it would change my stance. But we all know ESPN and likes only care about ratings.. not real news stories and such. Big Grin

Totally agree. Seems like a situation with very little risk and a huge possible upside. I do think that Tebow could help this team and would not be a distraction as everyone would know that Aaron will always be the man here. However, should an injury happen I like the idea of Tebow more than Harrell or Coleman to lead the team.

I'd be ok with it for a few reasons:

1. Grahm Harrell is bad

2. Tebow can (if he is willing) be taught play TE or FB, and if Tebow is anything, he IS good with the football in his hands.

3. NOBODY would argue that Tebow should start. Even the Tebow faithful must know the Rodgers is one of (if not, the) best QBs in the game.

No, simply for the distraction. Nothing much against him as a player or person, I just don't think it'd be good for the team.
