Like you, I wonder if in times of stress he'd fall back to his natural throwing motion, but I think after it becomes muscle memory it overwrites his old motion. Of course there's always the option of learning not to panic in the first place --- freaking Tom Brady could make millions teaching QBs how to stay cool under pressure.
This one is complex and highly subjective Suzy. Basically, the argument is that Tebow was "college accurate", but not "NFL accurate". What is meant by this is that the passing windows in the NFL are smaller/tighter. Basically, the argument is that DBs are faster and play tighter coverage. Where you might have a big hole in zones in college defenses, those holes are much smaller in the NFL, so you have to be more accurate. You see this when you watch Aaron Rodgers threads a needle between 3 defenders and hits a receiver.
Counter argument is that Tebow (and any other dual threat QB) running a spread option type offense wouldn't see the same kinds of coverages. Teams would have to stuff an extra defender in the box, or put a spy on the QB, taking a player out of coverage.
So, if Tebow is going to run a "conventional" offense like a WCO or even an Earhardt/Perkins or Air Coryell, he'd have to become "NFL accurate".
