Soon to be in Green and Gold?
A lot of you didn't want to hear this. Sorry to break it to you, but I don't invent the news, I only pass it along. The Green Bay Packers look like one of the major players in Tim Tebow trade talks. We can speculate endlessly on how serious the interest is and how the team would use him, but the interest is real. The NFL reporters at the WWL are not in the business of making things up.

Three teams to monitor as trade talks for Tim Tebow pick up: Jacksonville, Green Bay, San Francisco.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 20, 2012
Okay, so a lot of people don't want the Tebow circus at Lambeau Field. I understand. However, I think we saw last year that Tim Tebow is a serviceable backup QB, even if his accuracy is poor. He would be useful in wildcat packages, if Mike McCarthy is itching to implement them. He would sell a lot of jerseys and make the team a lot of money. He's not going to screw up locker room chemistry.
Honestly...I see no reason to be opposed to this, and I don't even think Tim Tebow is a good quarterback.
