Vince Young's success this season can't help but boost Tim Tebow's NFL stock. It is even more relevant today: Yesterday was the best game of VY's NFL career, culminating in that dramatic 99-yard 2-minute-drill and his last-second game-winning TD toss.
Lesson 1: Patience. Even though VY won Rookie of the Year, his career had fallen apart right through the start of this season. It took him 3.5 seasons to finally master the NFL -- folks need to remember that it could take Tebow that long, as well.
Lesson 2: System. Make no mistake: The Titans have optimized their offense to build around VY's strengths. VY has ultimately benefited from playing next to the most dynamic offensive force in the NFL today, Chris Johnson -- who keeps defenses honest.
If Tim Tebow is going to play QB in the NFL in a full-time role, he needs a similar set-up: Patience, plus a system geared to his strengths and being complemented by all-world players. (The problem is that it's not like you can find Chris Johnsons on any old team.)
