Default Re: Tim Tebow an NFL QB? Fail.

Was just listening to the Jim Rome show and Phil Simms commented on Tebow at the Senior Bowl.

Phil Simms said that Tebow's advisors should have skipped the Senior Bowl and worked on his footwork and taking the ball from under center, plus worked on his throwing motion and then shown his skills in a pro day workout, without competition. Simms said all this did was confirm what many thought that he could not handle making a drop from under center and throwing a quick timing pass from anywhere other than shotgun.

Simms went on to say that all the spread QB's looked awkward and non-athletic under center. He thinks that the spread offense is an easy place to hide non-athletic QB's because they" just have to stand back there like a wooden indian and throw a quick timing pass" without having to do a 3-5 or 7 step drop.
