Have you heard of Tim Tebow? He's the messiah/savior/leader of men/fullback who played some college football the last few years. He changed Thom Brennaman's life in just 5 minutes! In fact, Thom Brennaman is such a better person now, he's going to try to get The Cowboy to stop drinking so much liquor before Reds' games this year (I hope he fails; I love drunken Cowboy).
There has been some debate over Tebow's prospects at the professional level. Some feel that his elongated delivery won't work in the NFL. They feel that, while at Florida, Tebow rarely had to read a defense. They feel that he is woefully inaccurate, much more so than any quarterback who ever went on to succeed in the NFL. They feel that something as simple as taking a 5 step drop will take time to learn, time that he may not have. Others feel that just because Tebow sucks as a quarterback doesn't mean he will suck as a quarterback. He's a WINNERTM and you can't teach heart and guts and soul and leadership but you can teach accuracy, footwork, mechanics mental acuity, arm strength, and overall ability.
As such, I'm terrified that the Bengals will somehow draft Tebow. Could you imagine the Redeeming Mikey and Timmy could do together? Never mind that the guy is practically useless in the NFL, Mikey has drafted plenty of guys like that. Ugh. Getting sick already.
What makes me even more nervous is all of the Bengals connections to Tebow's "rebuilding" process of his throwing motion. To wit:
Tebow has been tutored in a pro-style way by working with a coaching team that includes former NFL offensive coordinator Zeke Bratkowski, Montreal Alouettes head coach Marc Trestman, Arizona State's new offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone and former NFL head coach Sam Wyche.
First of all, Bratkowski parents, WTF? Bob and Zeke? Secondly, Wyche isn't exactly a quarterback guru. He's coached at the professional level for two of the last fifteen years. In those two years, he developed virtual unknown JP Losman into the surefire Hall of Famer he is today. Does he really know how to scout quarterbacks and project them to the next level? I don't want Wyche to get the ear of the wrong person within the organization and pump up Tebow, especially considering Wyche has a dog in the fight now (if Tebow succeeds, it certainly looks good for Wyche).
Just please, no.
