I agree. Tebow looks great on his highlight reel.
Here is another gif:
What a bunch of pompous, pretentious, patronizing bull crap this was. Who the F**K are you to tell us what we know and don't know. There are 100 people here that have forgotten more football than you seem to think you know. Jeus what an assFor those that may not know the difference I'll try my best to give a brief description. The rest of yous can skip the next 2 paragraphs. In "traditional" NFL offenses the quarterbacks are usually asked to take snaps from "under center", whereas college offenses, and today's more modern NFL offenses, are putting quarterbacks in some sort of "shotgun" position, anywhere from 3-7 steps back(shotgun, pistol, etc).
For your information the "shotgun" was the primary offense of the 20's 30's and 40's. It was just called the single wing back then, and it was a primary running formation. All the so called "wildcat" principals come from that offense.
The shotgun as a passing formation has been used in the NFL on a regular basis since the 50's. Spread offenses like the run and shoot have been use for 30 years, And the modern spread and empty formations came into favor when the Pats used it extensively and successfully against the great Steeler defenses in 2003 and beyond. But even then it wasn't exactly new.
Of course you must know all of this since you are here to tell the rest of us remedial football. Dude you are so full of yourself, you probably expect to be paid for your "insights" The best thing I have to say about your post was you have a keen sense of the obvious.
BTW- Tebow "under center" is a waste of his talents

I even said, if you already know, you can skip that part. Calm down. Nobody was attacking your football IQ, but it's silly to assume everyone knows it and just begin talking about technical aspects some people may not understand at all. Just cause you know, doesn't mean everyone else does. Especially people that may be interested in Tebow and have become fans of football because of him.
I don't know how I ended up in the Team Tebow camp, I never saw that happening, but some of the criticism he gets on this board is just not well thought out and usually off-base.
His delivery is far from perfect, and it never will be perfect. What most of you guys don't seem to understand is that it doesn't have to be PERFECT. It just has to be consistent so that he knows where the ball is going every single time. I don't care how ugly it looks as long as the ball gets where it needs on time.
Thats why i wouldnt consider myself a tebow "fan", but think an argument can be made for Tebow having a better chance at success running the option, or wildcat, or whatever the technical term may be, in comparison to Sanchez trying to lead us through the air.
SMC certianly disagrees with this, and has even brought out collegiate %'s to prove his case, but i can still see the argument.
Former coach says throw away idea Tebow can pass

There is nothing about the way Tim Tebow throws the football that suggests he will ever be more than a novelty act in the NFL, a career understudy, unless he dramatically alters his mechanics.
So says a John Elway-confidant who has spoken with the Hall of Fame quarterback about Tebow’s time with the Broncos.
“I think there’s things you can fix,’’ said the source, who did not want his name attached to any Tebow-bashing.
UPDATES FROM OUR JETS BLOG
WHY DID TEBOW PICK THE JETS?
Elway, the Broncos executive vice president of football operations, instigated the signing of Peyton Manning, a move that instantly ushered in the end of Tebow’s short-lived Rocky Mountain high. Elway threw the bait in the water and the Jets were hooked, giving up two draft picks and $2.5 million to acquire Tebow and all the hysteria that comes with him, saying they will make him the backup to Mark Sanchez.
Unless the requirements for the No. 2 quarterback include virtually no passing the Jets might be in trouble.
“I’ve talked to John Elway several times about him, I told him you got all these guys working with him but trust me, they’re on the wrong path,’’ the source, a former NFL coach, told The Post. “His biggest problem is he carries the ball too high, when he carries the ball high on the back shoulder he has a long release, which means when he cocks the ball and throws it that ball is moving a lot, which is not going to help his accuracy, it’s going to hurt it. Nobody’s corrected that in him.
“And he’s got a loose wrist, when he comes back with his wrist the ball is moving all over the place. You watch that ball, the nose is forward and then it’s sideways and then it’s up and it’s down, you can’t throw the ball that way. It’s correctable.’’
The awkward throwing motion is not the only issue with Tebow, who starred in college at Florida using his formidable athletic gifts and the superior talents of those around him.
“The guy is not the sharpest tool in the shed,’’ the source said. “He’s a great leader, 10 out of 10 as a leader, energy, work ethic, everything you want in a quarterback but he doesn’t see the field.
“It’s hard for him to go back and think a progression through: If this is the coverage go to this guy, if this is the coverage go to that guy. He doesn’t do that very well. That’s the difference with college football and pro football. It’s so much more sophisticated and he’s limited that way.’’
Used strictly for a handful of plays in the Wildcat offense, Tebow can excel — as long as the package of plays remains small and limited in scope.
“If you practice them all the time you can get good at ’em,’’ the source said. “Where you get the upper hand is the defense has played eight games and they haven’t seen the Wildcat yet. They’ve got to use a number of plays on their practice schedule that week to the Wildcat and they may see a lot of it and they may not see it at all. But this isn’t some offense that can’t be stopped.’’

Sorry, this isn't the SEC, in the NFL, that ugly hitch in his delivery will be a killer over time.
It's the "on time" part that will prove to be the issue.
So why even worry about something that isn't a problem?
And he has never been known to throw a lot of interceptions. In fact that's the "secret" and "heavenly touch" that "magically" makes him a winner and everyone seems to amazed by it. He has one of the best td-to-turnovers in the NFL...
He chooses to throw the ball away, and have a less than stellar completion % versus throwing a pick. It works. He understands the basics, and doesn't give a crap about yards and completion %.
