He may not win you a season, but he may just win you a crucial game in the 4th quarter if your starter gets hurt.
There is a dynamic with Tebow that I haven't witnessed before. There is a group of people, a rather large group, who WANT him to win. They have overlooked his flaws for a long time because he is exactly the type of guy you want to win. This also brings about the people from the side who do their best to play the Tebow sucks side of the argument.
To be honest I would take any of the QB's on the Bengals roster right now over Tebow. If you could bring him in as a trick player then that is fine, but the entire media circus is going to come along with him.
