I'll go one further. The only reason Tebow does not start is because NFL teams would rather fail in a traditional way than try something new and risk criticism. Tebow shows how intellectually bankrupt most bad teams are (I'm not gonna blame a good team for failing to take a shot on something different, but some place like Buffalo or Jacksonville?)

Yeah I know it's played out on here but...Lebron James is better at the game of basketball than Kobe or MJ
I agree with your premise generally, but I'm not sure that I agree with it as applied to Tim Tebow. If Chip Kelly picks him up, then I'll concede.

quote:While I agree with all the main points, I just think if a team evaluates him or anyone different or not, if their evaluation is that he is not very good, I don't think they should give him a shot and possibly waste a year picking a "different" kind of player for the sake of being different.
While I don't want to say "Tebow is the awesome!" and say he would absolutely be a good player, my general point is this: it couldn't hurt to give him a shot if you're already a terrible team. If it works, you have zigged while the league zagged. If it doesn't, you had one more crappy year in a long line of crappy years. At least this one was fun and interesting.
The NBA should do away with max contracts, is that unpopular?
If the NBA was truly interested in parity, this would get you there pretty much immediately, or as soon as current deals run out of course
