C Mart, the trade itself was fine. That something, such as the Tebow trade, didn't work out, doesn't mean that it was stupid. It just means that it didn't work out.
What was stupid was not figuring out how to use Tebow effectively. Dumb assed things like deciding that he was going to be brought if for the 3rd series of a game, regardless of how things were going. Or trotting him in on 1st and 10, putting him in shotgun with an empty backfield and then having him try to run the ball.
I'm still trying to figure out whether Sparano could possibly be that inept, or if the coaching staff was afraid of putting Tebow into situations that he could be successful in.
