Default Tom Brady's coach sees similarities between Tebow and Patriots Quarterback

Tom Brady's coach sees similarities between Tebow and Patriots Quarterback


Published: Jan. 27, 2012 at 02:36 p.m




Just about everyone with an opinion on how the quarterback position should be played has been asked, at some point, to weigh in on Tim Tebow and his unconventional throwing mechanics.


Despite having plenty to talk about regarding his relationship with New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and his own quest for a kidney transplant, Tom Martinez, Brady's longtime personal quarterback coach, could not escape Tebowmania during a Friday radio interview with WQXI-AM in Atlanta.


Martinez initially used the topic of Tebow as an opportunity to compare the desire of the two quarterbacks to succeed. Brady, of course, will be starting in his fifth Super Bowl on Feb. 5. But the conversation slid to Tebow.


"I think Tim Tebow is willing to do anything that people tell him to do," Martinez said, via SportsRadioInterviews.com. "He's like Brady in the sense that he's an internal warrior. I think when he started in the NFL, whoever they put him with, I personally kind of disagree with the mechanics he was given. He's trying to prove the same thing Brady was trying to prove."


Martinez then was asked how long it would take to straighten out Tebow's mechanics. Given his success tutoring Brady over the years, Martinez expressed confidence in his ability to make Tebow more Brady-like in the pocket.


"Two weeks," Martinez said. "I could give him what I call correct mechanics in two weeks."

Or more clearly, Brady's coach sees similarities in Tebow in that he is coachable. Other than the comparisons stop.

Tebow's mechanics are never going to be fixed. He "fixed" them before the draft. In game situations he is going to revert back to what he knows.

Tebow needs to work with someone for the next 2 1/2 months not associated with the Broncos. WHy not the QB coach who has been working with Brady since Tom has been in the league

or maybe Tebow can just go work out in the weight room for the entire off season prior to mini camp.

which was the knock on him once he unveiled the new motion before the draft.
for him to change his mechanics he'd have to have an entire offseason and get constant coaching in his ear as well as in the film room.

IMO Tebow needs to concentrate on his quick decision making. 3 seconds and release...over and over and over and over....

Brady=Tebow? Ah, no and a huge no. Funny Brady's QB coach states he can fix his correctable problems in 2 weeks. Nice way of having Tebow wonderif this guy is the savior for his arm technique.

Uh.. I don't think so.

They are so far apart that I don't think Tebow's mechanics today are up to par with what Tom Brady's mechanics were back in Highschool.



That was Tom Terrific at age 16...

Kid already looked like he was ready to be drafted by the NFL at 6'4 200+ lbs.
