Flacco is a better runner than Peyton though so that helps his run game.. Peyton's non-athleticism hurts his team and run game.
Tebow's running definitely helps his passing but if everyone could do what Tebow did everyone would be running the wildcat with better runners than Tebow.
It's all his abilities that make him great.. and his passing ability is still undeveloped because he is such a great runner.. that is why he has so much upside.
