Tebow Talk Heats Up

It is no real secret that Brad Childress and Rick Spielman are the two “head dudes” once the Vikings enter the Draft Day War Room.

Thus, it is interesting that they both decided to be present for a private workout with Florida Quarterback Tim Tebow.

Here is what Peter King of Sports Illustrated had to say on the matter:

The Vikings, who pick 30th in the first round, had a private workout with Florida quarterback/NFL temptor Tim Tebow Saturday. Though I think it’s a long shot that Minnesota would use the 30th pick of the first round to take Tebow, it’s interesting that coach Brad Childress and VP of personnel Rick Spielman, who have the draft-day juice, were both present for the workout, according to a Florida source.

All along I’ve felt Tebow needs to go to a spot where he can have a peaceful redshirt year or two, and assuming Brett Favre plays one or two more years (now we’re getting ahead of ourselves), Tebow to the Vikes makes some sense, particularly if Childress feels he’s the kind of prospect that two of the quarterback coaches he admires most — Andy Reid and Mike Holmgren — think he is.

    has anyone asked Harvin if he thinks Tebow is a “real” QB?

      krug, I would sure hope so but with Childo you just never know.

    • Norseman66 says:


      Yes actually, and he gave the Vikes a ringing endorsement.

      • bigjohnny84 says:

        Norse, where did you see that?

      • Norseman66 says:

        I saw that a about a couple of weeks ago just shortly after Tebow’s pro day. It was on the VU website in an article about if the Vikings would be interested in Tebow. I guess they went and asked some of the players and coaches of Florida to do some background on Tebow. There was a statement in the article how they asked Percy Harvin his opinion and he gave the Vikes “a ringing endorsement” on Tebow and says that Harvin told them that’s he is a tireless worker and will do anything to succeed. That impressed me coming from Harvin since he’s a hard worker also. Just read yesterday that Percy put on 10 lbs of muscle in the offseason. Impressive!

        Thanks Norse, I cant believe I missed it. I saw that too about Percy, I just hope they can cure his migranes, that’s his biggest obstacle.

    • Gator4Life says:

      All of GATORNATION would love to see them paired together again!! They’re an amazing duo!!! Go Vikes!!

    thanks for the info, guys…….it’s REALLY a stretch to take Tebow at 30, but with depth at OL and DB for rds 2 & 3, maybe, just maybe, chilly will have himself another piece of clay……’s just odd to choose clay in rd 1………clay is more like Kafka, Crompton or Skelton…..

    GO VIKES!!!!!

    The Tebow talk is nuts. Personally, I’d love to see the Vikes take a chance on him. But can anyone here think of another player in draft history who has been projected to go anywhere from the 1st to 4th round? That’s what makes him so interesting. It’s almost like you want to risk overpaying for him just so you’re not left being one of those teams who passed him up, just in case he really pans out. Just imagine how closely he’ll be scrutinized jsut for sitting on some team’s bench for the next couple years. Crazy.

    • krugjr says:

      vibe…….you described the intrigue around Tebow pretty well…….for us, a player or two (or a “play” or two) away from the big dance….says we should grab 2 “impact” players at 1 & 2 and let the rest of the league (including rebuilding teams) deal with the Tebow situation…..

      GO VIKES!!!!!

    Hell no at 30. 3rd round pick, that would be fine.
