Tebow Quote of the Day: The CBS Guys

From Thursday's media conference with the CBS college football team:

Gary Danielson: "I'm one of the people who believes Tim Tebow's only position in the NFL is at quarterback. I don't think he's a tight end or a fullback. I think he is a quarterback, but he does need to learn how to be more of a pro-style quarterback. I don't think he would be happy just being a wildcat quarterback. We really don't know if he is an NFL-style quarterback yet."

Phil Fulmer: "When (Tebow) was a freshman, everybody said 'there's nobody who can be all that.' Well, Tim Tebow is all that. He puts that team on his shoulders every time he has to. I think he can do whatever he is asked to do."

Tim Brando: "This guy is unique. There's nobody I've ever seen quite like him. He walks the walk. I remember asking (former Ole Miss and NFL great) Archie Manning to put in perspective what Tim Tebow means to the position and what he means in terms of the history of the game. And Archie, the father of two No. 1 draft choices, two Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks in Peyton and Eli, described how RogerStaubach ran as good as any quarterback he'd ever seen, and how Dan Marino had the quickest release and was so accurate, but Archie said he'd never seen a better football player play the position of quarterback than TimTebow. That says it all."

Spencer Tillman: "Tim Tebow's problems are correctable. I think the only thing he really needs to do — other than discern coverages, which is a big deal — is take some snaps from under center and learn how to extend plays instead of, after one and a half progressions, pulling it down and making something happen with his legs."
