I wouldn't.

We don't need gimmicks, we need a smashmouth style and control the line of scrimmage.

Gimmicks don't work. They just confuse the overall goal of your system. Just like in Denver.

It would be interesting but I just don't see it happening.

New Orleans and the Pats are being mentioned,and I'm pretty sure he isn't going to those 2 places to play QB.

We are already going to have the Manning fans and I use that term generally not directed at anyone judging Andrew Luck and comparing him to Manning with everything he does we don't need to add the Tebow fans to that mess with Luck.

Hmm, odd two teams I would've never thought would even be interested in him.

Maybe the Pat's coach could make a QB out of him. haha

The thing with those fans is that most of them like Tebow for reasons that have nothing to do with football and there is nothing wrong with that. However they call for Tebow to start regardless of how well the current QB is doing or isn't doing and regardless of how well Tebow is doing or isn't doing.

If you have Brady or Brees , you'd be STUPID to put Tebow behind center.

I could see fullback maybe, but QB at NO or NE? Why?

They have NO reason to run gimmick plays.

The Luckafiles and the Tebowmaniacs. What a combination.

I shouldn't have went down this path,do you agree?

Who knows. We're not experts.

Anything is possible I guess.

I love the kid (Tebow), I just don't want him as a QB for the Colts.

Depending on the offense that Arians installs it might not be the worst fit. If it resembles what he had in Pittsburgh then Luck/Tebow could be an interesting dynamic, just as Newton/Tebow or Vick/Tebow could be.

I was talking about more of their fan bases.

I wouldn't mind having him as a backup but I would trade less than a 5th round pick to get him.

hahahaha no, why waste some of our draft picks and/or players on a QB that would end up backing up Andrew Luck. Not to mention he doesn't know our system. If he is brought in, it's because Irsay wants to put butts in the seats, although every Colts game seems to be sold out.

I see Tebow going to the Fins if Smith stays in SF, or the niners if Smith goes to the Fins.

For now.. Hopefully it stays that way

those sellouts are coming to an end barring a quick turnaround.The Colt's have done a good job pricing themselves out of a large part of their market cause they had PM.That is coming to a screeching halt.There were alot of empty seats last season and that waiting list they love to brag about is going to shrink up real quick.

Yes, it would be the perfect combination, all that would be needed is a smattering of some Peytonmaniacs to jeer at both to ignite a war. Fun times.

that would be a good idea but their strongly pursuing Alex Smith which would be even funnier given the fact the niners were trying hard to get manning and could end up with no qb

Just Say NO to Tebow! Why should the Colts invest in a mediocre QB? But he would be a great back up and back up Luck. But not to start for the Colts. No Way and No Thank you.

I agree even as a joke Tim Tebow in Indianapolis is nothing to write home or laugh about. Can we select a more meaningful topic of discussion now? Thank you.

He ain't coming via trade. Keep in mind, he is still a 1st round pre-cba pick. Minimum 2 million cap hit.

I totally agree. I have no idea what is all the lovefest in Tebow? Who is a mediocre QB to say the least. I know he has strong faith, and will probably do a lot of good in this world outside of football. But that is about it!

I still don't see all the lovefest with him. He wont be setting the NFL on fire, anytime soon or even in the future. Also people doing the Tebow has gotten really old.fast.

You are 100% correct. Why is it when you critique his quarterbacking skills, specifically his failure to anticipate throws before wide receivers make their breaks on routes or even throw acurrately even when his line of vision is clear & unobstructed, people jump all over you saying "you are a Tebow hater" or dislike his religious conviction?

Look, I can separate a person's personal background from their ability to play football okay. Tim Tebow is not effective on the football field okay. He is a backup QB at best. Teams will bring him in for a workout of course, but his starting field general days are over & done in my opinion.

    • Sign WR James Jones - It makes too much sense.
      I think Robinson will be better than Toler at a minimum.  Anything else is extra gravy.  I like what we have with Mitchel and Djoun Smith for the nickel spots. I don't have much doubt that Smith can play the Nickel at a minimum.  Mitchel I think has enough length to play inside or outside. Plus Butler is still there for now.   I like some of the other guys like Davies, Winston Rose, Glover Wright.  I think there some young guys who will pan out out of that bunch.
    • Sign WR James Jones - It makes too much sense.
      I'm not so confident on the back end. I think things could work out. S isn't as big of a concern I like Southward and Greens measurables for sure. Guy wasn't horrible If Adams goes down that's potential for a problem. We have shown we can find help at S if need be.    CB I'm more concerned. It's my biggest concern on the team. We only have Davis who we know can play the boundary.    We brought Robinson in to play the otherside we know he has been inconsistent at best out there. He excels in the slot. Brown looked great in the preseason but couldn't carry it to Sunday then was on the IR by week 4. Could another offseason with Pagano get him straight? Maybe. It possible and I'm hopeful Smith grows up quickly. Butler we know sucks on the outside but he was worse in the slot last year. He may be cut.    I like the young guys. Mitchel could help. I like what I know about Glover-Wright and Milton. I want to see White too.  Milton is my dark horse.    I would feel better if we took a CB in the draft. We passed on some guys that could have helped on the outside Russell then Fuller in the 3rd was a steal. I would have been good with Sims or Hall both small school guys in the 4th. We could have rolled the dice on Robinson from LSU. I really liked Sims there. Morrison I really don't like that pick. I don't see what they think they see. The fact that they think they outsmarted everyone is more troubling.    The back end and specifically the CB position is very costly to fix in FA. I think that position will determine how dangerous we are this year. You are only as good as your weakest link to me the back end, boundary CB is our weakest link. 
    • Seen Any Good Movies Lately? Rental Or New Release...Share Your Insights/Reviews Please...
      I was wondering about the risk involved, so I'm glad that you brought up the point about Snowden not divulging any identities. I wasn't sure how far he went when this was released.   I agree with you that Putin gave Snowden asylum partly to antagonize the administration. I don't know that for sure; it's my opinion.   I doubt that Snowden will ever return to the United States, so I imagine that he's adjusting well to his new life.
    • Colts' Scouts: What they liked about LeRaven Clark....
      I actually forgot to mention my thoughts on your last line. As to understanding where players are properly evaluated and or valued is in the eye of the beholder. That's not opinion. That's definitely a fact. It takes 1 team to value a player as a 3rd round pick (for example) but the other 31 may value him as a 4th round pick or hell even later. Different teams value prospects in different rounds. Some may see the same things but many or most will value have players all over the map. To say he went where he was supposed to go is simply an opinion even if backed up by some draft gurus. To me he was a 4th round prospect and I could really care less about most of his measurable minus the bench press (which was actually backed up on film to, He is not completely weak but its clear to see he lacks strength which I bet gets worse as games go along and is tied to endurance. My opinion of course, Nothing more, Just based on what I saw).   And yes I'm willing to bet had we past on him he would have lasted till the 4th, We know 18 teams past on him in the 3rd before the Colts took him. That's over half the NFL did not think well of him enough to make him there 3rd round pick. Also 1 of those teams (Browns) passed up on him and chose an OT Shonn Coleman instead. Again I did not see him as a 3rd round pick and 18 teams agreed with me...and its not hard to see why

      Hello my Name is Robin. And i'm from Denmark. even though i've been member on this forum for a long time, and the old one as well. I would like to Introduce myself. I became a Colts fan in 2007, when I watched my first NFL game. My brother introduced me to NFL, the superbowl between Colts & Bears, And as we all know the Bears scored first, so I had to rude for the "underdogs".. and from that day on I was hooked. I've watched every game since, even the primetime games, that starts 2:30 in Denmark, it's a long day working with no sleep but damn its worth it. Can't wait for my next big Colts adventure, when I get to see them playing in London 
    • Member Introductions! (Say Hi!)
      I have been a fan since 1984 when I became an early teen and really started to understand the game. Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984 and eventhough we stunk for a while, things obviously got better. We traded for Dickerson in 1987 and won the Division, then we had Harbaugh's magical season in 1995, the Peyton ERA where winning 12 games was a piece of cake + winning a SB in 2006, now the Andrew ERA where we have already had 3 11 win seasons and a deep Playoff run.
