He comes across very well grounded.

The only thing that made me raise my eyebrows over...was when he said that when he gets on the field...it's just like it's always been...playing in the backyard, it's just football.

That's true...but, I hope he doesn't underestimate the work he needs to put in...to get better at throwing the ball.

I mean, in High School and in College...you can get a way with that looping throwing motion and slow delivery...but, in the Pros...you need to get the ball out quickly.

You're questioning Tebow's work ethic? Hilarious!

That isnt what he was talking about.

He was referring to the ability of the others on the field. He was saying that he didnt have to struggle more against these guys than he did against other kids growing up.

Further evidence that he feels like he belongs out there.

The backyard thing just illustrates how much Tebow feels at home, in command of himself on a football field. He's comfortable out there. He makes good decisions, has good instincts. Doesn't get cagey or afraid of making a mistake, usually.

I also didn't like his quote after Raiders game..

"You're playing against the biggest, strongest, fastest, but at the end of the day it's still playing football and so it wasn't extremely different," Tebow said.

He played one game and passed the ball 16 times..
He seems to be overconfident...
Hopefully, he realizes that playing in NFL is difficult compared to College.
But, i will never question his work ethic..

He played one game..I like Tebow..But, to say that playing QB in NFL is not that difficult is a stretch..
Even Brady/Manning will not say it..

He didn't say it wasn't difficult did he (can't listen to the interview)? By your words he just said it wasn't that much different. It is the same game after all.

You guys should use context clues to figure out what he's talking about.

The guy played a pretty good game. Stupid RB should have caught that pass which would have given him 3 TD's in his first start and no turn over's. Not too shabby.

Tebow not putting in the required work is opposite of what we
have ever heard about him at any level, not to worry.

As for being overconfident, I agree, many are reading between the lines and what is being said is simply not there. Tim knows the difference at every level is recognition (learning) and making quick, correct decisions (experience). Some QB's never get it. I really believe John Elway didn't feel comfortable until the start of year 3. One game doesn't get you there. Preseason and game 1 showed that Tebow could physically do it. It will take some live action, against disguised defenses not preseason vanilla, to merge the learning with experience and be totally effective. As a result, we will continue to see Tebow utilize his physical talents to offset his lack of experience. Ultimately, hopefully, we will see the same progression Elway went through, where he will know what he can get away with, what he can't (running vs throwing into coverage) and when he should switch away from the called play.

I find it humorous that we see one game and we (and media) are forecasting where he will plateau out on the development curve. McDaniels did the correct thing by signing Orton to the extension, sitting Tebow for learning sake and not throwing him into the fray right away. I will still hang my hat on what Elway said about the situation .... there comes a point where sitting/watching produces no more value. He said you have to finally play in real time against normal NFL defenses to make the real progress that will determine whether you are an NFL QB or not. Which is exactly why, when the season is lost, you play him. I don't care if we are hurting Kyle's feelings at all. He should have expected it, 3 - 10, doesn't earn you anything.

I think Tebow work ethic is the one thing people never question. If Tebow doesn't do well, it won't be from lack of effort on his part.

Tebow opened up a can of whoop ass , he was the only reason we was in that game ......
I was hopin they would let Tebow throw it from our own endzone stead of tryin to run it , but it is what it is , an excellent first game for the future of the Broncos

Kubiak said something about how Tim played in a way that made it obvious that he had been doing his share of work to improve and/or be ready to play.

Tebow also coughed and looked upto his left in the post game interview. This means he is a lier. Also, if you skip every third word in his interview you will hear him saying that he is a knights Templar and that the holy Grail is in his posession.

Brandon Lloyd I think deserves a strong mention here.

why are people over analyzing what he says? he's said the said thing since he was a recruit. the game is the same to him no matter what level he plays. at the end of the day it's about adjusting to the speed of the NFL and playing to the best of your abilities.
all he's saying is that he can play at this level and it won't overwhelm him.

i'm not a fan of picking him in round one. but i think he'll be a good player with the right coach to develop him. maybe even a pro bowl type if he can mold his game to fit the NFL.

For the record, I'm not questioning his work ethic.

What I'm alluding to is this:

If Tebow really feels that he doesn't have to change his mechanics or throwing motion and that "it's just football"...well, I'm not so sure I agree with him.

You have to be a polished "passer" in this league for ultimate success. I have to agree with Steve Young in this area. Many of you may have heard Young criticize Cutler against the Vikings. He essentially said that the sky is the limit for Jay if he only works on his mechanics. Because it's so easy for Cutler, he may think he doesn't really have to change things. But Young's point was, to be amongst the best, it's the little things that gets you to that arena.

Does Tebow believe his mechanics and throwing motion are flawed? Is he going to work to change and/or improve them.

I'm a Tebow fan..a big one...but, if he doesn't improve his mechanics and throwing motion...it will catch up to him. And, all those folks who want to compare him to Phillip Rivers are off the mark in my opinion. Rivers may have an ackward delivery, but it gets out quickly and it's always on target. Tebow on the other hand, has a rainbow throwing motion and doesn't step into his throws...in some instances it's like he's lobbing a grenade. Again, I'm a big Tebow fan...but, he has alot of work to do and the first step is to admit you have a lot of work to do...no Tim, "it's not just football".

Hamrob
12-25-2010, 03:53 PM
As to over analyzing. He was asked straight up about his awkward throwing motion and mechanics. Instead of saying, yes I still have alot to work on, but I'm making progress. He said, yes I've worked on those things and hey, it's just football. Sounds like alot of downplay to me.

Here's the thing folks...we are going to get a new or rebuilt front office and a new HC and coaching staff. They will need to decide whether to stake their claim in Tebow over the next 2 games or go in a different direction. Meaning, trying to get Luck or maybe even Trading Tebow and taking a kid like Mallett.

So, if you think he's being over-analyzed...you bet ya!

Rivers may have an ackward delivery, but it gets out quickly and it's always on target.

Rivers is "awkward" now, but it was worse than awkward when he was coming out of college, and he looped it low. It's compact and quick now because he worked on it.

Yep, lefties tend to always read to the eye as more awkward or more labored.

Did he ever even mention mechanics? You do realize he's been actively working on his mechanics since he got here right? Remember the string thing that McD or somebody devised?

I wouldn't be trying to tell Tebow what to believe about the game if I were you...seriously that sounds pretty silly.
