This comparison might be worthy had last year been Tebows rookie season. Eli progressed his 2nd year. Tebow is in a state of mess his 3rd year. Can you blame the jets for wanting him to punt protect instead of working on his mechanics? Sure. The gimmick plays aren't helping him become a legit starter in this league. But they are slowly evolving him into a hybrid gimmick position.
