Don't be like the guys who scorned the advent of the forward pass 60-70 years ago and said "it was a gimmick".
Open up your mind & try to get past your disdain of Tebow. It is, right now, a passing league, so defenses are also built to focus on defending the pass. It is thus very possible to build a freaking juggernaut run game and literally jam it down their collective throats. Mix in a handful of efficient throws....bingo, success.
Maybe you played football? Ever play in a game where you could not stop the run - at all? Demoralizing, frustrating, causes you to over pursue, commit penalties, take chances, etc.
If I were an owner I'd get Tebow and attempt to build the most devastating pro ground game of all time.
+2 ....the only thing that does not support his idea is the fact that the Goodell Flag Football rules, have been skewed the game SO heavily toward the pass side ... that the running game really has no chance to compete.
