When Tebow can't hit open receivers in practice with no real pressure why would the coaches think he can do it in live action especially when his history shows he is inaccurate.
It is not silly to say team meetings count. If he can't show an understanding of the offensive system or scheme in a meeting room then that is not going to change on the field. The game has some critical mental aspects to it and discussing things in meetings is just as important as lifting weights and getting throwing reps in.
[View Full Quote]The Jets are the second team willing to cut him loose. That is telling. Peyton Manning isn't getting any younger. You figured the Broncos would have been happy to keep Tebow to learn behind Peyton, but they must be a pathetic organization as well.
See.. the problem with your theory is that you assume that coaches always know best.. and i think most of us are old enough to realize that's a bunch of baloney.
You can sit here and guess what you think or don't think Tebow is capable of, but to say anything definitively one way or the other is showing your lack of understanding on the subject.
Tebow has been given one chance.. and he played far better than anyone thought he would. If given a consistent starting role, there's no telling what he could accomplish. I'll tell you this much though, i'd start him in a second over Mark Sanchez. Ryan and that organization don't have a clue.
I agree with you about his physical QB skills.. he reminds me alot of Matt Leinart coming out. All the accolades, Heisman winner, etc.. but had a noodle arm and couldn't make the NFL throws.. but Tebow just has a quality about him that makes people around him better.
