Broncos Tebow: McDaniels' Playbook

Here's an early peek at a New York Times piece by Judy Battista that reports on the McDaniels-Tebow dynamic. She emphasizes something I have been saying around here this week:

What if McDaniels is precisely the kind of confident, innovative coach who will change the game with a QB like Tebow?

In 2010, that might mean evolving the Wildcat into something more potent. Beyond that, maybe he chucks NFL coaching orthodoxies for something new -- not unlike the way the Pats incorporated the spread a couple years ago... under McDaniels.

But to presume the standard template for Tebow -- either as a Wildcat or a starting QB -- simply because that's the way it's always been done? Well, that's #timtebowcant territory.

  1. Dan,
    You may want to read this article. It really lays out, in detail, what McDaniels (may) be up to--most complete analysis I've seen on this point. Keep up the good work.
