Here we go again.
Every single time that there is some sort of quarterback controversy in Cleveland, especially the last 3 years, whose name keeps coming up?
That’s right. Tim Tebow.
Forget the fact that no team has actually wanted Tebow he was cut by the New England Patriots and that not even his hometown team of Jacksonville wants him (Though that may have more to do with the fact that they’re tanking the season so they can get the number one draft pick).
In no way shape or form has there be any indication that he’d be anything other than a back-up quarterback if he even comes to Cleveland. There is no shot of getting the starting job. As I’ve mentioned already, we are stuck with Brandon Weeden.
This then should pose a different question that that I don’t think anybody’s really answered: How bad is Jason Campbell right now?
Truthfully, I don’t think I’ve seen a single greater decline in a quarterback. This is the same Campbell was the starting quarterback in Washington, and he’s the same solid starter that was supposed to get Oakland out of the JaMarcus Russell mess, even though now they have Terrell Pryor.
Don’t get me wrong. There is a back-up problem with the Browns. You have Campbell who wasn’t even active during the Buffalo game and you have nobody behind him. Make no mistake, the brown still need a third string quarterback, but does it really really need to be Tebow?
While you have a guy who in his one season actually did pretty well be became expendable because you don’t turn down Peyton Manning, he’s pretty much been a drifter and apparently he’s also not willing to play any other position besides quarterback. That’s probably why he’s not a Patriot anymore despite the fact very desperate need at tight end.
This hasn’t actually stopped the Internet speculating about Tebow and the Browns once again, because we don’t go through this every time we turn around.
So let’s nip this in the bud: Tebow is not coming to Cleveland and if he is it may only be to watch a game, not actually play in it.
