New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow leaves the field after they defeated the Buffalo Bills in their NFL football game in East Rutherford, New Jersey, September 9, 2012."

When Tim Tebow entered the NFL in 2010 many believed he did not possess the necessary skills in order to perform at such a high level at quarterback. Fast forward three seasons and there are more than enough people who continue to support that notion.

Who knows what the New York Jets were trying to do when they decided to bring in Tebow, but their little experiment turned out to be nothing but a big bust.

The Jets are coming off another disappointing season, not making the postseason for the second straight year, but in some strange turn of events it'll be a big surprise to many if they see Tebow on the sidelines next year.

But with all those opposed to Tebow's quarterbacking skills, one man has stepped up in his support.

Washington Redskins defensive end Adam Carriker believes Tebow is destined to remain a quarterback in the NFL.

 "I think he's just a football player," Carriker said on his radio show, 4th & Pain. "I think he could play as a big third down back or a fullback... He could even go play linebacker if he wanted, but I honestly believe he took a team that was 1-4 ... he took that team to the playoffs."

Carriker went on to say that you can't blame Tebow for what happened with the Jets given that he wasn't given a fair shot as a quarterback.

And his logic for giving him a shot now you ask?

"He is known for being clutch in the fourth quarter," Carriker says. "He is known for coming up big in the biggest moment of the games. So why not bring him in?"

The Tebow quarterback discussion continues to be a big topic for debate even making national television programs.

Two-time Super Bowl champion Phil Simms sat with David Letterman of the Letterman Show Monday night, and was asked on whether or not he believed Tebow fit in with the Jets.

Letterman wanted to know whether Tebow could ever be a starter, and Simms gave some analysis about how the Broncos succeeded with Tebow and how Mark Sanchez's contract complicates Tebow's chances in New York or the rest of the league.

Check out Letterman's less-than-informed thoughts, and Simms' take on Tebow, in the video below.
