    Tim Tebow- Question-Would he have more success as a CFL QB instead of an NFL QB?

    I think a lot people agrees that Tebow ok QB with major shortcomings
    as far as his mechanics. I believe he would be a very good QB in the CFL.
    Reason being the CFL field and game is more suitable to his style of play.
    If he went there for a couple years after the Jets let him go if he fails
    there , he can finally learn how to play the QB position and make a return
    to the NFL and be as decent starter, if he can land a spot. In reality, if he
    stays in the NFL, he's not a starting QB at all and he needs to learn the fact he's
    not and become a halfback, his natural and true position if he wants to stay
    in the NFL. Discuss!

    I don't agree. Yes his running skill set would work great in the CFL but, with the bigger field, even 10 yard outs turn into a 30 yard throw if you go to the big side. So his accuracy issues would be amplified. There wasn't really a QB that has come up from the NFL that has dominated. Some have gone the other way and been productive but I don't see Tebow being good in the CFL.

    No, the CFL is a passing league and he's a running back

    Boy, did I not call the Tebow to the CFL prediction right. If he does go to the CFL he need to be there at least 2-3 years to be a decent QB. http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-sh...0903--nfl.html.

    He will never play in the CFL. The man can't even throw a ball on a postage stamp field ,let alone a CFL field.
