Thank you for the video. Watching it totally changes what is being implied in print.
A) And what exactly is that defined role? I saw the video. Santonio was asked Tebow's role and he replied, "football player." When asked to clarify what that meant, he went into a bumbling string of generic phrases about Tebow "not only throwing, but running, and winning football games." It's pretty clear that Holmes has no idea what Tebow's role on the field is going to be, and I'm not sure the coaching staff does right now either. But Holmes definitely doesn't want that role to involve throwing him the ball instead of Sanchez.
B) I took the "two QB system" to mean Tebow coming in for the occasional wildcat or option play. Whatever you want to call it, it involves Tebow under center with the option to throw. That WILL happen, Rex has said it himself. And it sounds like Holmes doesn't like the idea at all. You can spin it at as defending Sanchez, but given the ambiguity of Tebow's role at the moment, I don't think Holmes should have come out and essentially said, "we DEFINITELY shouldn't do this or that."
