As Doug Farrar of Yahoo! Sports points out, Tebow's best shot at being a true, professional quarterback would lead to a departure from the NFL to the CFL.
Montreal Alouettes head coach Marc Trestman, who is also a former NFL quarterback guru, believes in Tebow's potential:
Based on what I’ve seen, I believe that in the right environment, and with a chance to go through the right process, that Tim Tebow can develop into being an elite quarterback in the NFL," Trestman told Yahoo!'s Mike Silver in 2010 after working with the then-draft prospect.
Sure, Tebow will have to swallow a lot of pride to leave the NFL, but it could be his only opportunity to be a full-time quarterback. If he plays well enough, perhaps an NFL team will give him another shot.
Of course, the CFL will benefit greatly from having a global icon on one of its rosters. Tebow's presence will give a CFL team some regular airtime on ESPN besides the "Not Top 10" list.
