Regarding Tebow

Tim Tebow strikes me as classy, upstanding, hardworking young man.  I like him. I also like when people, in this case, Broncos coach John Fox, are willing to go all in with what they have.  No, Tebow is not a traditional NFL quarterback, nor is he able, at least at this point, to play in a traditional NFL offense.

So what?  There was a time when the whole concept of specialized closers in baseball was unthinkable.  I’d love to see more ingenuity on the coaching side of  sports and less sanctimonious, sacrosanct garbage.  We’d all do well with less culty fandoms.

Enjoy this post from Yahoo!Sports’ MJD about Fox’s willingness to throw out “that other crap” (that is, the passing game) so that Tebow and the Broncos might have a chance to succeed.

  1. Wait, there are NFL coaches that will call running plays when the pass is not working (or even, perhaps, when it is working)?

    There are two things I like about what has been happening with Tebow in Denver. First, they won a game in which they completed two passes. That’s just ridiculously awesome. Second, though they would never say it, it has generally been believed that the team management decided to start using Tebow just to prove to the clamoring fans that he can’t cut it. If there is any truth to that, it is sweet to see that it is the fan’s beliefs that are being validated rather than the other way around. (But you can still count me a skeptic that this style of offense will work over the course of an entire season or more.)
