Obviously, part of it was the hodge-podge context, but it was what it was. The McShays of the world will gleefully point to it; Tebow-backers will (rightfully) mitigate it.
The point of Tebow participating in the Senior Bowl wasn't the Senior Bowl itself -- as I'm sure the sell-out crowd figured out pretty quickly. The point certainly wasn't to impress NFL scouts.
The point was to get a week of NFL coaching and to show that Tebow is willing to do whatever it takes to get better. That has nothing to do with scouts' analysis and nothing to do with the game itself.
What next from here? A few weeks of under-the-radar training in Tennessee or back in Florida, gearing up for the next stage of this: The NFL Combine in late February.
Of course, in the meantime, it's not exactly like Tebow will be off the radar. There is that little Super Bowl commercial that will keep Tebow very much in the conversation.
