    Hardly threadworthy. A college WR who hasn't lived up to his promise to date says this and we are supposed to take it as important?

    Why on earth would you post this?

    All this proves is this WR will have a TO-esque effect in whatever lockeroom he ends up in.

    Name the last run-first QB with crappy throwing mechanics who was never taught to read more than the first two receivers to succeed in the NFL.

    Please, find one.

    From the context, it's obvious he means "real" in the sense of "conventional", rather than "good." Reading comprehension, try it!

    Heh, that's what I get for not reading the article. In any case, I'm sure Tebow won't like hearing those words, because he does, for whatever reason, think he is perfectly capable of being a conventional QB in the NFL.

    It won't bother Tebow what anybody says about him, thats what real top sports people are like.

    Tebow's footwork was impresssive at his pro day, he has made amazing progress with his mechanics. Nobody is saying that he is NFL ready now but a year down the road there is every chance he will be ready. He has all the intangibles to be one of the greatest, I'm certain his drive and determination will see him make it in the NFL.

    Just to use a different sport for a moment. Tiger Woods changeed his mechanics in golf, which is just as difficult if not more difficult to do and won four majors in a row after doing it. Tim Tebow is in that category of sportsman who has an insatiable appetite and drive to be the best they can possibly be.

    Don't get me wrong. I'm in the "me likey Tebow" camp. I think the kid has a lot of potential, but he's not quite there yet. Could BB be the guy to get him there? Maybe ;)

    A grand statement of the obvious.

    A running QB could run or pass at any time and the WR didn't know which it was going to be. Yeah, that's how it works. Neither does the D. That's the whole point of a running QB.

    This guy did not help himself. Luckily he isn't coming out this year. He needs to know if the NFL you run a LOT of routes and you never know if the ball will come you way or not, even if you are open.

    Yeah, they feed off of positive energy, and use negative energy to spur them to greater heights. "I'll show YOU who's a real QB." Takes a special person to be a professional athlete, even beyond the physical capabilities.

    I like Tebow alot and we have a gaping hole at TE. They needed to be working on his blocking not his throwing motion. I dont see this guy ever being a serious QB.

    WR has to be the biggest bunch of idiots by position in the NFL followed by CB's.....

    how come the little scrawny rats of the league are allowed to make so much noise?

    I think the DL's of the league should tell these little MF'rs to knock it off, or else

    easy... b/c they are the most athletic and their ego's are controlling their decisions. They are in the the play the majority.... think about it.

    Football has become mainly as passing game.

    Oh yes. Pro Bowls. They're completely not popularity contests.

    Running QBs who don't develop passing skills may have a few good years but by the end of the season they break down and in the playoffs are nearly worthless.

    I would not pin my long-term hopes to a QB who can do nothing more than run.

    But if we're talking crappy throwing mechanics, Vince Young doesn't apply. He has a funny motion, but he gets the ball out quickly and his height doesn't allow a lot of balls to be batted down.

    Tebow takes t h i s l o n g to throw the ball, and he slings it from his side. His height does not allow him to get away with slinging it sidearm. Also, Vince Young is a better athlete and was a better quarterback than Tebow in college. I'm no Tebow basher, but I'm a realist. I just don't understand why everyone gets so caught up in intangibles that they are willing to overlook that Tebow's skills don't translate. Intangibles are what separate people with equal skills. Tebow is a great college QB, but this whole "being a winner" thing does not necessarily translate to the NFL.

    Troy Smith was seen as a "winner."
    Ditka drafted Danny Wuerffel because he was a "winner."
    I'd rather draft someone who has the skills to compete in the NFL right now, unless Tebow slides to round 4 and on.

    You do know that he's tightened up his throwing motion a good deal, right? I think he's going to continue to work on it until it's outstanding, that's part of why Tebow's intangibles are so outstanding, he's not going to be satisfied where someone like Vince Young had to be benched and humiliated before he started to take his game more serious.

    He's absolutely right. Brantley is a better pure passer than Tebow is.

    I think the Dolphins might actually be a team that has the creativity to draft and develop him. Assuming they can get Pat White and Tebow enough reps to be comfortable throwing the ball they have the potential to produce a nasty offense.

    After what Henne said, I find it difficult to think that the Dolphins will be the ones to draft him. My bet is that the Jaguars move back into the second round to take him.

    I don't think Soprano would care what Henne says, he's from the Parcells school of coaching, if they decided to take him and run a super-wildcat Henne would do what he's told or be out of a job.

    Teach White how to play receiver, teach Tebow how to play fullback. Can you imagine the trick plays they could pull off with 3 QBs on the field at once? :eek:

    Oh yeah! And Ronnie Brown too! :eek: x10!
