People are just so focused that Tebow is playing under Urban Meyer just like Alex Smith. That doesn't mean that Tebow and Alex are the same player. Tebow plays with a lot more emotion and seems to have that "never lose" attitude just like Jeff Garcia. He's won the Heisman, won games and national championships against some very tough opponents. He brings the energy and sets the tone. That's a great player to have on your team.
a bit late to this discussion, but i agree. i know the jury is still somewhat out on rodgers, but if you think all quarterbacks are a product of their college coaches, that would mean boller and rodgers are comparable. i mean they both played in tedford's system and both had good college careers. one is looking good and the other? i dunno where boller even is anymore.
i see no similarities between tebow and smith. two different quarterbacks who just happen to play for meyer.
in all, i think tebow will be a good NFL qb. i think our style of offense would be a good slow paced offense for him to get his feet wet in. lots of running with a qb who manages a game and makes the small throws to keep the chains moving. he is definitely faster than hill.
but in all, i would rather davis get a shot at the starting QB role.
