The whole option offensive movement is generated by running... the Seahawks didn't move that direction fully until later in the season too. And they were tearing teams apart offensively..
New England was a great running team this year. Your right about the whole spread offense the thing is Tebow doesn't throw well enough to play in the NFL. That is a fact and he is going to bounce around until he bounces out of the league for a few years.
