Default Re: Tim Tebow an NFL QB? Fail.

but that assumption is in direct conflict with what Sparano had to say in LLT's post...

South team coach Tony Sparano of the Miami Dolphins says the former Florida star was a little more comfortable and got the ball out of his hand quicker on Tuesday. Sparano says that improvement shows how smart Tebow is and how quickly he processes information.
I don't think his "smarts" is what will hold him back, nor his physical attributes, but his technique and skill development.

The wild cat would love him, but that has proved to not be an every down scheme in the NFL.
