"I don't think Tim Tebow can play in the NFL if it's in a pro style offense."
-- Jimmy Johnson, on the Dan Patrick Show today. Yes, but who said he could... or even would? The longstanding argument (around here and in Urban Meyer's office) is that Tebow needs to be deployed creatively. Maybe that's as a starting QB in a totally revolutionary system, but maybe that is as a spot-starter in particular situations: Short-yardage, red-zone.
Johnson says it himself: "Coaches -- it doesn't make any difference or they're pro or college -- they're so set in their ways, sometimes they try to fit a square peg into a round hole."
Exactly: If Tebow plays for a smart coach (cough! Belichick!) who takes advantage of his unique skills, he can do just fine as a QB in the NFL. Look at how Vince Young is now thriving in an offensive scheme that is suited to his ability to move in the pocket.
