Also screens are more effective vs man than zone, ftr.

And I also do wonder about the WRs getting open.
Yep eyes were failing me on that pic...

But you have to admit rev they didn't have to sell out... this was EASY. We will see if the screen game comes alive next week, but I seriously doubt it. Spies and delayed blitz's have worked so far.

IMO, with all the trash teams are throwing at the middle of the field it might be time to bring back the bubble screen... Does he throw that well enough? Or is that an automatic pick six with his wind up and the coverage?

Hell I don't know... If things look this bad next week you guys may have to add a NCAA QB segment.

We can just assume anything we want to...

Here's what I KNOW: Miami developed a successful blueprint vs Tebow and Detroit executed it even better. We're most likely going to see the SAME thing @ Oakland.

This is all I want: Quick hits over the middle and into the flat when he reads blitz. Two TE sets (12 or 22 personnel packages) when it's a slow developing 7+ step drop. Etc.

I don't think that's too much to ask nor does it absolve him of any responsibility in the performance. But let's try to eliminate those things that are wreaking havoc on his fundamentals so we can give improvement a fighting chance.

That's a good question.

He threw plenty of WR screens last year with success.

Came across this while digging up quotes for the Kubiak thread:

Quote:
"He looked like he was more comfortable in the second half," Texans linebacker Zac Diles said of Tebow. "They had him throwing screens and short passes. (But) the man can play football."

I'll be damned if this isn't exactly what the eff we've been asking for... :/

Ok, I have to call you on this...

O-line
Orton had Clady-level talent watching his backside... Tebow has Franklin.

Running game
Orton had McGahee moving the chains... Tebow has Moreno.

Passing game
Orton lived off Lloyd talent... Tebow now has a shuffled deck of players that did him no favors last game.

coaching
Had the book on how to use Orton... Still have no clue on how to use Tebow.

Now this is just a few of the obvious stuff without even getting into play calling and protection packages...etc.

but none of this matters right? apples to apples...

ok

Except that Tebow holds the ball three times longer than Orton and doesn't step up into the pocket.

And when he does get an open man he overthrows hi 5-10 yards.

I agree he's not getting many favors from the plays called, but at the same time he's making the plays called look terrble by his lack of execution.

It's not that he looks like a young QB with a few things to work on. He needs to work on EVERYTHING.

As of Orton ever stepped into the pocket. That was one of the biggest reasons that he sucked...

He also had receivers drop more balls than he threw high. One was high because it was a jump ball to a single covered Thomas, who didn't leave his feet. He threw one ball that went right through a receivers hands, only to hit another reciever in the hands and drop to the ground... Royal had like five balls hit him in the hands or go straight between his hands.

You guys only blame Tebow for this horrible receiver play. It was really stupid to give away the two top receivers...

...So which of his seven sacks would you attribute to that?

I mean sure you call them at your own leisure as well but all my life when teams are getting smoked up front on O you always hear the guys in the booth talk about the team needing to call some screens to HELP out their line.

It's like whoever calls the plays for us refuses to adapt to what is happening on the field.
A little Mike Martzish in ways. A little to much I'm CALLING THIS !!!! and I don't care what I've seen all game or what has worked and hasn't.

It's like they don't even understand paper, rock, scissors sometimes...
I like the idea of the 2 man game that Socal mentioned, with the 1 step drops or quick slants to a TE.

Actually he DID step into the pocket last game. I re-watched the game again yesterday and was surprised myself.

Twice Lynch was even knocking him for going too far into the pocket. Like that overthrown jump pass to Royal down the right side. Watch it again an you'll see that the back released into the flat. Had Tebow NOT stepped into the pocket he could have dumped it off. There were a couple to Decker that he stepped into the pock. The last sack I believe he stepped up into the pocket right into a sack. It was a mixed bag... but he was stepping into the pocket last game.

Agree with you guys that this mess is Bowlen's fault.

Great point by Rev about Bowlen saying he his taking his team back and the best holdovers are still from Shanny's tenure!
