Defenses are going to get frustrated when they have to suddenly defend a different type of QB after they just game planned and played a traditional drop back QB.
Remember slash from the Steelers? He was much more effective as a back up than a starter...
My thinking too. Until he develops his ability to read a defense and deliver a sharp, well-thrown ball, he is an option/Wildcat type QB who will be utilized as a weapon, not as a full-time starter at this point in his career. If Sanchez went down, the other QBs on the roster probably would be better as a starter with continued use of Tebow in the option/wildcat role. That's where he is deadly. But not full-time.
