Seven games in (10 total) and I saw something in Tebow. His footwork was much improved. His throws were slightly crispier. I even saw him call out protection on that all out blitz where his wobbler hit Thomas' hands.
You see, I'm not big on Tebow. I saw a QB who was still playing the position as 80% of high school athletes are when they're learning the position. I'll throw a number out there and say 10% of colleges run an option heavy offense where the athleticism of the position because the X factor.
Its only in JV, some college programs and NFL practice squads where a player such as Tebow will be given an opportunity to learn and grow. Except this is the NFL. I realize that we may never see this type of scenario play out again and will explain why.
Everyone's job is tied to winning. Tebow seems to have that covered. However, its about building a team around a scheme. Well, 10 for 15 is a step in the right direction from an individual stand point and salute both the players and coaches for putting in the work honing in those skills and timing that's involved in the process. But how does Denver move forward?
I saw some good things. In fact, I was excited about the prospect of having Luck, Barkley or even Griffin III available come draft day. Its amazing how the team rallied around the concepts that rival NFL norm. Wouldn't it be great if we could go the distance and win it all? Then what?
Yesterday, this guy saw what everyone was clamoring about and I don't know if there are more like myself but crow sure sucks when you're that guy everyone points to and says "we told you so"!
