    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

    Former U of Buffalo QB Drew Willy( Back up Sask ) was thrown into a game , and played well.
    http://www.leaderpost.com/sports/foo...983/story.html
    www.ticats.ca


    After he spoke out against escalation of the war in Vietnam, Lester Pearson was invited to visit Lyndon Johnson at the presidential ranch, where Mr. Johnson is reported to have grabbed him by the lapels and snarled, “You don’t come here to piss on my rug.” Curiously, urination figured in Mr. Pearson’s revenge a few months later at the Prime Ministerial retreat at Harrington Lake. Mr. Johnson was visiting, and when his Secret Service agents accosted Mr. Pearson one night, he replied: “I’m the prime minister of Canada, I live here, and I’m about to go and have a leak.”

    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.
