2008 SEC Championship game highlights
Like any QB, some of his throws where the screen passes and dump-offs, but a few key passes were down field, and he hit his guy in stride as you'll see.
Most importantly, when down near the goal line, he made very quick, hard and accurate throws to his WRs for TD passes in places where only they could catch the ball. Very impressive.
Dude, showing highlight clips from some of his games shows nothing but he has had some good plays throughout his career. Great. I'm guessing I can Youtube highlights from about 100 other QBs in CFB and have them look good. I don't think anyone is arguing that. The fact is Tebow hasn't been asked to do much. Maybe this year he will be asked to make some real NFL throws. He's great in Urban's system, perfect even. So was Alex Smith. Does the fact that he can run the spread option offense mean he will easily translate to the Pros as a great QB? I think not.
I couldn't agree more with this assessment.
favorite quote, "But it's a lesson: Superman in college can become Danny Wuerffel in the pros."
what NFL throws is he failing at exactly?
its a mistake to compare the offense run at Florida to the offense that was run at Utah like there is some blanket comparison of what Smith ran and what Tebow is running now... There is to much of a difference in what was run in utah to what is being run now to simply ignore it.
Smith made a living out of beating guys week in and week out that cant make a canadian football league team.
Tebow like him or not...is beating players week in and week out that are going to be in the NFL.
On a personal note , I am not a major Tebow fan , but The offense in Florida is carried on his back.
He is not Matt Leinart that gives the ball (one way of the other) to NFL ready playmakers to do the work for him.
Tebow carries that team , he flat out has an "X" factor , were he WILLS his team to victory.
He really reminds me of John Elway.
No doubt the guy has magic in a bottle ,but like elway i end up asking were was that 3 qtrs ago...
