So why would that make him a dumbass? Seems like a smart move on his part.
It'll drop his stock IMO. The only way it works out for him IMO is if he is dead set on being an NFL quarterback. But if he's open to being a fullback, he needs to go, since apparently they wanted him to play there some.

Hogwash. NFL personel have already spoken highly of him. I'll be surprised if he drops out of the first 2 rounds. Going to the Senior Bowl might turn him into a 3rd or 4th rounder. No one thinks it'll boost his stock and that's the only reason guys even go the the Senior Bowl.
Guys, it doesn't say he's not going to play in it. Or even that he doesn't want to.

I don’t know. I haven’t talked to anybody about it,” Tebow said. “If the people I talk to that are wise think that I should play in it, I’ll go play in it. If they don’t, I won’t. I don’t know. I’ll do whatever I need to do [to impress NFL scouts and GMs] — throw out here a million times, I don’t care.
Scouts will be upset because they wont see him run a traditional NFL offense. However this is probobally a good move for Tebow. A bad showing could really hurt his draft stock, somiliar to Graham Harrell though not that dramatic. Tebow has many flaws and the senior bowl could magnify them.
With Tebow not taking snaps under center, it wouldn't be smart to play in this game and basically have a week to get comfortable under center and more importantly display good footwork. The Senior Bowl really isn't in his best interest and would be a huge mistake. With Florida playing after New Year's Day he wouldn't have a ton of time to work on it prior to the Senior Bowl week. Joe Flacco was faced with this problem but he started right after his season at Deleware working with a QB's coach. I forget who it was, but remember it was one of Mike Mayock's friends. The Senior Bowl ultimately got Flacco into the first round in my opinion.
