Default Tebow Documentary - ESPN

This was the "outside the lines" piece they did on Tebow while he was making his decision to go to Florida.

Just a couple of observations...

Holly crap are his folks relegious. I heard they were missionaries but this was more WAY than I knew. No big deal, but it was a little suprising to see.

This guy has always been the most freakishly competitive athlete I've ever seen... WOW

His delivery? Eh.... I doubt this gets a lot better. Early in this documentary they show him at some high school camps working on his delivery. Looked almost identical to how it looks now (in practice). Then he gets into the game and the wind-up makes it's return. Now, oddly enough, I felt his delivery looked better in HS than it did at Florida.

Spread Option: his HS offense sure looks a lot like the Gaters O'. I sure hope McKidd is planning to incorporate his mobiulity into this offense.

Don't want to give too much away, but the kid played an entire game on a broken leg... Unbelievable display of toughness and leadership for a 17 year old.

It's fairly long, but well worth it.

Yeah, this was really good. Gave me a better perspective on Tebow. I'm at ease with the pick now.

Nice stuff. Interesting how many leg injuries he had in HS.

Here's a thought about his delivery...

Maybe it never fully corrects, and yet he still has a pretty decent pro career?

Looks to me like his arm is only in that downward position for a split second. He's mobile and looks agile in the pocket.

Maybe the guy just has a bit of a funky throwing motion, and the rest of his game makes up for it?

If he's accurate, and makes good decisions... he's certainly got other levels of his game that can elevate him.

I'm just not convinced that this hitch in his throwing motion dooms him to failure. He may FIX the motion, and still fail.

I think this kid's success will boil down to a lot more than his motion.

You haven't watched all that much of him have you?

When Tebow was taken at first I was all



Then I saw what we gave up in a deep draft, and I was all



But then I saw the rest of the draft play out, and at the end of day three I was all



Now I'm imagining him in the wildcat on game day and I'm all

That video is amazing. The thing that stands out is this kid has not changed one iota since high school. He's saying the same team-first mantra then as he is now. Before the Heisman, before the 2 National Championships, before being a #1 pick.

Bronco fans should be psyched.
