Tebow To Bucs “Makes Absolutely No Sense”March 20th, 2012
Joe figured this subject may just blow away, but alas, it has not.
Yesterday, Joe explained why Bucs/Gators fans should forget about Tim Tebow in Tampa other than to give support to wounded vets, or to troll the trendy hot spots in south Tampa packed with nubile twentysomething lasses.
But today word leaked that the soon-to-be Broncos expatriate quarterback wants to continue his NFL career for a team in Florida.
So Joe will turn to Pat Yasinskas of ESPN who broke down why Tebow on the Bucs roster is a horrible idea, from a football standpoint.
From a business standpoint, it might make some sense for a franchise that struggles to sell tickets to bring Tebow back to Florida. From a football standpoint, it makes absolutely no sense. New coach Greg Schiano and offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan plan to run a conventional offense. They’ve already got a drop-back passer in Josh Freeman and they don’t want to cause any headaches for a player who needs to bounce back from a rough 2011 season if he really is going to be their franchise quarterback.
Joe can just imagine the first time Bucs quarterback Josh Freeman, who is the Bucs franchise quarterback unlike a stop-gap guy like Kyle Orton was with Denver, forces an incomplete pass into traffic aiming for Kellen Winslow, Jr. Roughly three-fourths of the crowd at the stadium on Dale Mabry Highway would be screaming for Tebow.
Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik doesn’t need that, new Bucs coach Greg Schiano doesn’t need that and, least of all, Freeman doesn’t have to put up with that nonsense with people in his ear that he should be benched.
The time now is to right Freeman, not turn him into a headcase.
