The critics are always out there, but Tim Tebow has the grinch of all critics in ESPN analyst Merril Hoge.
Hoge didn’t see anything he liked in Tebow’s 6-for-7 passing, 91 yards, 1 touchdown performance last week against Dallas.
In the latest roar from the lion’s den, Hoge still doesn’t believe that Tebow can be a successful NFL quarterback.
You’ve got to look at a couple flaws that Tim Tebow had at Florida and still has in the National Football League that I don’t believe ever get better. First of all, his delivery is such an elongated motion that you have to have a complete, clear pocket for him to be successful down the field. If you don’t have that, you’re going to struggle.
His accuracy really struggles from that elongated motion. When you have a guy that elongated in his motion, he’s less accurate, he’s not as quick throwing the football. . . . That entices teams to blitz more. He takes more hits during the course of the game.
If they start Tim Tebow, players are not stupid. That coaching staff will have no respect from the players. – Merril Hoge
