The things that he did when he was at the University of Florida, all he did was win ball game whether he was throwing the ball or he was running it; he made plays. Came to the NFL, and all he did was, make a few plays, and help win, very big ball games, when people counted him out. And, I think he's going to be that same guy coming to New York, that's to help fulfill a role of us, winning, more than 8 games than what we did last year".
So, once again, stop trying to act as if Holmes is "throwing his coaching staff under the bus" due to the fact that he feels Tim Tebow will be used as an overall football player when in regards to a "two quarterback system".
See if you can wrap your head around a silly notion real quick, and that is, that Tone gave a lot of good answers in that interview, BUT YET he still screwed one up majorly.
I didn't condemn everything he said. I pointed out that he said the right things about Tebow (even if he doesn't believe what he said, it was the right thing to say). My only issue was his answer to that one question.
Now, I've gone ahead and done a quick and pretty accurate transcript of that question.
RIGHT AFTER Holmes said all that about Tebow, here is what Andrew followed up with.
"You say football player.. Rex, couple of months ago said maybe 20 plays a game, we don't know, I mean it could be 5, it could be 20, it could be special teams, it could be whatever...... Can a two quarterback system, even if it's 5 plays
, can that work in the NFL?"
Tebow's understood "role" is inherent in the question.
Again, Tone's answer was "No, it can't work".
