With all of the talk swirling about Tebow leaving the Jets, it got me thinking about where he might land. Now, this is strictly hypothetical, but I was curious as to what the rest of the BTSC community thought of possibly having Tebow in black and gold.
A couple of thoughts... First, our backup QB situation this year hasn't exactly been inspiring. Batch had a great finish to the Ravens game, but as much as I love Batch (and I have loved having him on the team), it might be time for a change in our backups- especially given their propensity for injuries. Secondly, Tebow plays a bit more like Big Ben. If (and when) Ben goes down again, it might be good to have someone who plays a similar style so that there is less shifting around of the offense. Tebow does not have the accuracy of Ben, but it would be a similar mindset, which can go a long way.
This all seems fairly unlikely, especially because Tebow will probably want to go somewhere where he has a chance to start, which won't happen in Pittsburgh. But he is a high-character guy who is self-motivated, a team player, and willing to do what it takes to win, which sounds like the kind of guy I want on the Steelers. I honestly don't know how it would all work, but what do you all think? Good idea? Bad idea?
