It seems that every one has an opinion on Tim Tebow; it's either you hate him or love him.

This article will explain the positive and negative aspects of Tebow coming to Carolina.

The first thing that stands out to me for Tebow are his intangibles. As any Panthers fan would know, Mr. Richardson loves to draft high character guys. According to different football sites, Tebow has already impressed many general managers in interviews at the combine. Drafting Tebow would continue the trend of going after high-character players that share in Mr. Richardson's vision of a Panther.

Another good thing is that it would be great public relations for the Panthers. Since Carolina is a small market team, he instantly bring national attention to our fan base that has really seem to lack star power for a long time. From a business sense, Carolina can cash in on the "rockstar" status that Tebow would bring.

I believe that he would be a good fit for our scheme too. Tebow could be brought along slowly while learning behind either Moore and Delhomme. Since our scheme revolves around running the ball so much, Tebow, ala Mark Sanchez with the Jets, can slowly be brought along in the passing game. Since he wants to be one of the best whomever played, I believe that he is willing and ready to take on the next challenge.

There are some negative aspects too for Tebow. Would he be able to learn the intricacies of NFL defenses? Will he able to adapt successfully to a pro-NFL style scheme?

Expectations could be huge if Tebow was drafted. Would our fan base be patient while he rides the bench to learn the scheme?

Alright Carolina nation, all comments, opinions, disagreements are welcome!
