Default Good Peter King article on Tebow and the coaching staff (Not MMQB)

Peter King did a feature piece for SI, five pages on Tebow and what's going on behind the scenes at Dove Valley. Basically the full version of the few paragraphs that were in MMQB the other day. I really liked it.

Hmmmm... Let's see...

- He posts a 5 page article on the quarterbacks (focus on Tebow) and the coaching staff from an inside guest dynamic

- You post a single sentence tweet.

Yup, same thing.

Great Article, although I am still a bit worried about them trying to change Tebow's mechanics. Remember that his accuracy out of college was unbelievable. It reminds me of all the people who insisted Ubaldo couldn't pitch the way he did in the minors because his arm would fall off.

It tells you the upside that they see, that his mechanics can be off, and still throw touchdowns to Royal. Something we definitely were not doing last season.

That was a really good article. So good that I was disappointed that there wasn't more than 5 pages. I wanted to just keep reading.

I have to say...I'm impressed with how hard the McDaniels brothers are working at coaching him up. That's a ton of passes a day and they are just plugging ahead at it. I also like the creative thinking with things like the hand towel under the armpit and such. There probably is a good degree of nepotism involved in the Ben McDaniels thing....but it seems that Ben also legitimately knows what his brother expects and wants taught so far as QB techniques go in this system and knows how to coach those things up, despite a less than awesome resume. I definitely came away more comfortable with the thought of Ben McDaniels as QB coach after reading that article.

It's been said numerous times already, but once again, you gotta love Tebow's dedication and eagerness for more work even when he's exhausted at the end of each day.

All of the above being said, we should still be wary of looking for instant gratification here, its going to take some time no matter how hard the principals work and coach. We've got to be patient with Tebow. I'm sure the muscle memory will get there....its probably a little harder for him since the staff is starting to change some stuff that Bratkowski and Wyche were trying to teach prior to the draft...but I'm sure Tim will become comfortable within a few months. Brandstater being out will help him get even more reps so that'll help, too.

Really nice piece. Props to the coaches and Tim Tebow for all their hard work so far.

God damn that was a great article. I love how McD doesn't destroy ideas from his QB's... innocent until proven guilty.

Also, it sounds like it's almost guaranteed Orton is going to be starting for 2010 at least.

Thanks for the link!

Great read. I love when writer's can supply anecdotes instead of just dumper opinion piece after dumper opinion piece.

I like McDaniels' approach more every time I learn more detail about it. I also love the joy that Tebow exudes as he works. You can tell he loves every little detail about being a football player, and relishes every second of work he puts in.

All of this and more. It was just an excellent piece from start to finish. Wish King did more of this and less of the random crap that takes up 70% of MMQB. It would set an excellent example for sportswriters nationwide.

A LOT more goes into the game of football than any other "sport" and the people who report on it need to treat it accordingly.

And yes, it does an excellent job of not only portraying the fire of Tebow, but the McDaniels brothers themselves. I liked the bit about the broken glove, but he has the ability to, and I won't be content until, he's breaking the coaches paws.

are you that dense, or just trying to throw your quick jab in off someone elses post because you are incapable of producing anything on your own?

so again, when i post before he does that peter king has an in depth bronco report in the next SI, then this post is made after that post to say that its already out, im somehow wrong. got it, morons.

PS. Socal's more than beyond capable of batting you around all day like a helpless ball of yarn, but for two reasons he won't:

1. He's a busy guy.

2. By now he knows how much I love this.
