So suddenly Tim Tebow has decided that passing from a Goose Gossage-style windup isn’t going to cut it in the NFL. Tebow’s camp has released video of him taking drops and throwing the ball from his shoulders. Why, that’s just what an NFL quarterback would do! I can’t wait to see him throw at the combine!
[Tebow] will attend the scouting combine in Indianapolis, which run from February 24th through March 2nd, but he won’t do any throwing, preferring to give himself more time to practice his new techniques.–RotoWire.
Some people have turned this into an indictment of Urban Meyer and his inability to make Tebow “pro ready.” Yeah, because look at all the great NFL quarterbacks that Jim Tressel, Nick Saban and Mack Brown have churned out. Oh, and there was that one guy from Penn State. Joe Paterno was at Penn State for 200 years and the only NFL quarterbacks he could churn out were Kerry Collins and Benjamin Franklin. Actually, Franklin played in the CFL. That’s my bad.
