â†µBut there’s room for â†µdissenting opinion, especially if it comes from one of the more respected NFL head â†µcoaches of this decade. Though it would be nice if the arguments they laid out â†µmade a lick of sense. â†µ
â†µâ‡¥"As a coach, I â†µâ‡¥always like winners," [Tony] Dungy said [during an appearance on the Dan â†µâ‡¥Patrick Show]. "Tim Tebow doesn't have the classic throwing motion, he â†µâ‡¥doesn't have the accuracy, maybe, right now that some people are looking for, â†µâ‡¥but I think when he gets into a pro system that really stresses throwing the â†µâ‡¥ball accurately, the big thing is he makes the people around him better. And â†µâ‡¥he's won. ... I think he's going to be a great player in the NFL." â†µâ†µ
â†µFascinating. Sooooo...from â†µthis we can gather: â†µ
â†µ2. Tim Tebow lacks the â†µaccuracy necessary to run an NFL offense predicated on accuracy from the â†µquarterback. â†µ
â†µ3. Somehow these deficiencies â†µwill work in concert to make everyone around him better. â†µ
â†µPerhaps if Dungy had â†µmade the case that a team could tailor an offense to emphasize Tebow’s â†µstrengths as a QB, then that would be different. But he seems to want to argue â†µthat by sticking Tebow into a conventional NFL offense, one that does not fit â†µhis skill set, everything will magically be improved. Am I neglecting the power â†µof Jeebus in this equation?â†µ
