There was no zone read in the chargers game.. yeah it took Tebow time to get going but he got in a great rhythm with Lloyd.
The reason Tebow and Orton struggled in Fox's O was because it was so predictable and slow paced. ANYONE would struggle in that O without great runners in the offense.
The Oline was terrible without Tebow running too. That is the real reason "Tebow was screwed" as Fox said. This is why I think Peyton was a moron to go to Denver. he's going to get KILLED behind that line.
Fox honestly didn't want the offense to be successful though.. having no offense helped his D tremendously.. when Tebow scored quickly the Broncos D completely collapsed.
This is also why Cam is so overrated in Carolina.. the offense in Carolina looked so bad the season before Cam for the same reason - Fox was always protecting his D and making the O look bad.
