The NFL has adopted the read-option from the college game though.

Colin Kaepernick, Russell Wilson and Robert Griffin, III have shown that NFL organizations are willing to go away from the traditional dropback passer as their quarterback and cater to their strengths by infusing concepts that were long considered college plays.

Next year the Oakland Raiders might be heading that direction too with Terrelle Pryor.

But the biggest difference between Kaepernick/Wilson/Griffin and Tim Tebow/Joe Webb has been the former QBs bring the threat of the pass and the latter QBs don't. A 46.5 completion percentage is not efficient. Completion percentages are trending upwards in the NFL for a reason, 46.5 percent is the stone ages.
