Now that Brandon Lloyd is with the St. Louis Rams, he’s free to speak about his former teammate Tim Tebow however he would like. In a radio interview with ESPN 101 in St. Louis, Lloyd said that he’s not sure if Tebow can be a successful NFL quarterback.
Turning it back over to the Denver Broncos. Do you think Tim Tebow has the chops to make it in the NFL?
“I don’t know. I think only time will tell with that style of play. I think it is effective last Sunday, but I just don’t know how effective that style can be over the course of long games and playing formidable opponents.”
Tell us from a wide receivers perspective. Everyone talks about Tim Tebow’s throwing mechanics being an issue. Does the ball come out of his hand different to a receiver?
“It’s just the timing. The timing is an issue. There’s just not that much separation that you can get in the NFL. You got a yard on the guy? That is wide open. [Laughs] You got a yard or two yards on the guy you are wide open, but that window…you are not open very long. Any delay in delivering the ball or any delay and not being in the position to be ready to throw the ball when that separation happens or I take that back. Not being able to deliver that ball before the separation happens? It just throws a monkey wrench into all the time and anything you are trying to accomplish down the field.” – Sports Radio Interviews
