Tebow Quote of the Day: Michael Wilbon

The Washington Post's (and PTI's) Michael Wilbon, on the "Should Tebow play?" decision:
I'm not about to suggest that the University of Florida doctors and trainers would take any liberties with Tebow. But I've always thought that players, or their parents, should have access to independent doctors, at the school's expense.

In a case like this, wouldn't Tebow be better off if he wanted an opinion from a physician not compromised by whether or not he should play at LSU? And suppose the two doctors disagree, which is often the case with concussions. Then Tebow would have multiple opinions to consult. And it wouldn't be a bad thing if Tebow wound up with Troy Aikman's phone number. The best information for Tebow might come from a Hall of Famer whose career ended early because of concussions.

Wilbon isn't necessarily close to the situation, but from his influential position in the PTI chair (a chair I have sat in! while being on TV, even!) it will drive the national opinion about it.
