After receiving plenty of critique about his throwing motion, Tim Tebow has worked long and hard with quarterback coaches all over the country this offseason. His hard work is apparently paying off.
Jets’ QB coach Mike Cavanaugh said this to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.
“I think he can be very good…I was pleasantly surprised when I saw him over an extended period of time . . . not just watching him play on film. I think he’s certainly got the arm strength. He has good mechanics. They’re getting better every day. - Mike Cavanaugh via the New York Daily News
As for how much action Tebow will see, the Jets have said that he could report in for as many as 20 plays per game, but playing time is the least of their worries.
“The perfect scenario is that… we win enough games to get into the playoffs, go deep into the playoffs and have a chance to win a Super Bowl,” Cavanaugh added. “I want our quarterbacks to be a part of it… I’m not concerned at all about playing time. – Cavanaugh to the New York Daily News
The thing that stands out to me the most is how the Jets constantly feel the need to justify the move to acquire Tebow. That’s something that will never be put to bed in a city as big as New York where only one quarterback (per team) can rule.
