Tim Tebow Stays: What it Means

As was the truth with any Gator Nation fan, I was excited to hear that Tim Tebow was going to stay for another season and help the Gators win yet another National Championship.  As I was listening to the analysis before Tebow had made his decision to stay, some of the pundits were suggesting that Tebow make the switch from QB to H-back to up his draft stock.  This got me thinking about how Tebow could make the switch, and honestly, I think if Urban Meyer designs a package of plays for Tebow to be used as an H-back, that it would benifit the Gators.  For those plays, you could install Cameron Newton (listed at 6'6" and 240) in at QB, or possibly John Brantley. 

Like I said, it would only be for a package of plays, but I think it would benefit Tebow, who many talking heads think is too big to play QB in the NFL, in addition to not running a "pro" style of offense while at UF.  Tebow will still be the starter at QB, and thus be able to use his unprecedented leadership skills, not to mention his arm.  But this package of plays would showcase Tebow in a way that could make him attractive to scouts, and ultimately successful at the NFL level.

It works out for Florida as well.  You'd get to ease the QB of the future, (whoever that may be) into the lineup.  If I recall correctly, Tebow was "eased" into playing when Meyer installed the two QB system during Chris Leak's senior season.  This type of two QB system could keep Florida on a considerable "roll" and might contribute to its continued dominance of college football.

Please be kind and use good grammar.
