Dilfer drinking the Koolaid?
Some of you may have seen this but interesting to see the change in Dilfer's attitude toward Tebow.
From Dilfer's Twitter account:
Final thoughts this week after watching EVERY TT snap this year. A lot to unpack here, but I will try to keep brief
TT has shown MASSIVE improvement the last two games (MIN & Chi). Seeing it better, footwork, stroke, rhythm & accuracy.
Tebow: Obvious by watching tape that he will have more open receivers than most because the threat of his DESIGNED runs & option
This unique O puts D in HUGE conflict! It breaks rules, creates 1 on 1 tackling situations, & spreads secondaries thin.
Tebow: Bronco's empty package(no backs),creates the most conflict for D, TT ability to be a power runner creates open rec in pass
Tebow: EVERY empty formation pass play they have run as atleast 1 open rec, many times WIDE OPEN!
Vs. Bears TT had 5 dropped passes past 1st down marker, 4 drives they punted the other one was at the end of the half
Playing tight man accentuates the passing challenges, but exposes the D to the option game.Option FB runs D out of man cov
Initially I didn't think this type of offense was sustainable, but w/TT dramatic improvements & conflict I see D in,I pause
The key that allows him to not be as "pure" a passer & still have success is the DESIGNED runs.He must stay healthy 4 this
It goes w/out saying he needs to continue to make significant improvements,but based on what I've seen in 11 starts,he will
ONLY 11 STARTS, yet I & so many others forgot to see him through that lens.This will continue to be a fascinating study
An offseason of working on the RIGHT stuff & increasing his FB IQ will have a tremendous impact on his game.
For u simple minds out there, mobile QB's & this QB who dictates looks w/designed runs are two TOTALLY different things!
