For weeks now, Lee "Hacksaw" Hamilton has been clamoring on his radio show on The Mighty 1090, that the Chargers would be disingenuous in passing up the opportunity to bring in Tim Tebow to San Diego.
"Do I have any friends? Is there anybody out there that agrees with me on this?" asked Hacksaw.
On Friday, during his morning show and like a voice in the desert, the "Hacksaw" continued to plea with the Chargers about Tebow.
"Now, I'm not giving up a fourth-round pick for Tim Tebow....I might be giving up a sixth-round pick. He might have to take a pay-cut... The packages you could design for him would just cause ulcers to coordinators. You get 45 snaps in practice on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. You're gonna have to devote some of those snaps now to the package of Mike McCoy who puts the guy on the field."
Hacksaw insists that bringing in Tebow, who is a tremendous locker-room asset, a terrific team player, a hard worker, and extremely talented, at a low cost, improves the Chargers significantly.
Hamilton (who regularly refers to himself as "bleeping brilliant") continues to make the point - as he did on Friday again - that Tebow is far better than the Chargers "53rd man on the roster", so why not give Tebow a chance?
To ward off his detractors, Hamilton also points out that to bring Tim Tebow to San Diego would also require that the Chargers make it clear from the beginning that Tebow is not competing for the Chargers' starting QB position.
Instead, Tebow is to be used as a dangerous, multi-faceted weapon; something the Jets - Hacksaw noted - failed to do so quite miserably this past season.
The Hacksaw then went on to challenge his listeners:
"Somebody give me a specific reason why Tebow would not fit in San Diego."
Another key issue Hacksaw raised was the successful working relationship between new Chargers coach, Mike McCoy and Tim Tebow back in Denver, during that magical Broncos season in which Tebow helped lead the team to a playoff victory - something the Broncos were unable to accomplish this season with Peyton Manning at the helm.
Hacksaw does not understand the Chargers' apparent lack of interest in Tebow:
"Tom Telesco, the Chargers general manager says he is not interested in looking at a potential deal for Tim Tebow. He says we have other more important priorities."
Obviously, Hacksaw disagrees with the Chargers general manager:
"I understand your priorities but I think you need to look outside the box and maybe do something creatively to add a player who could do a lot of different things."
Hacksaw's bottom line to the Chargers?
"Tom, Tom, please tell me this, tell me this. You're not telling me Tebow has less value than the 53rd man on your roster, are you?"
