Sure, I understand that bringing the Tim Tebow Show to Charlotte may not be the best idea, but the Charlotte Panthers need something, and while I think their first draft under Dave Gettleman seems like a good start, it doesn't mean that they should sit still.
First off, the Panthers need an upstanding guy. There is little doubt that Tebow can fill this roll. Perhaps more than any other he can handle this one. There is always the possibility that he'll end up like Jim Bakker, but chances are good that he's on the up-and-up, and the team can use some good press, so let's call this one a good move.
Unfortunately, that may be the biggest reason, but it doesn't mean it's the only one.
