My friend swore Tim Tebow was going to make it.

At work, as you approached his desk, you couldn’t help but notice how he placed ESPN’s magazine cover of Tim Tebow right in front of your walking path.

To greet my friend in the morning, you had to greet Tim Tebow — first.

My friend loved him. As a person. As a player. As an icon. Tim Tebow was going to be the future of the NFL, he thought.

And when the 6 foot 3 inches, former 2007 Heisman Trophy winner, took over for Kyle Orton, landing the Denver Broncos an AFC West division title and a playoff win against the Steelers, the world in Tebow’s eye was, essentially, his.

But that was 2011.

Reality and gravity were elements riding Tebow back to the surface; it scoped his blemishes so visibly that even the common eye saw flaws.

Today, the conclusion is clear: quarterback Tim Tebow does not have the skill set to be a starter in the NFL.

That, however, doesn’t mean Tim Tebow couldn’t be put to use for some team. Take the Dallas Cowboys for example.

Here are reasons the Cowboys should consider signing Tim Tebow as their third string quarterback.

    To be honest i think tebow can make things happen but i doubt it will. This team needs a winner a dog as a qb. Romo is good qb but he is not a dog.

      Romo is the furthest thing from the problem on this team. This team needs a defense full of foaming at the mouth dogs. Offense will be just fine for a few more years.

    Didn’t the Jets try this already..?

    Just say No to Tebow. He is out of football for a reason. He is not a QB, nor has he been able to become anything else. He doesn’t open up roster space, he wastes a spot. He is not a special teamer and never has been. The wildcat is toast. It was a gimmack. He can’t throw, so Ds will just stack the box. This makes so sense.

    Yes. Why not waste some cap money on signing a quarterback with no talent. That would fit the MO of Jerry Jones.

    This is one more in a long list of nuttier than a fruitcake ideas.

    I bet the same people who hate Tebow,also hated Aikman in 1989-90,even 91.. But with some coaching, from Norve, he turned out pretty good.Compare how many snaps Tebow has had. WHO worked with him on mechanics?
