Bill Parcells spent his weekend at the Pro Football Hall of Fame, presenting the great Curtis Martin for induction. He took some time out of his weekend to speak to Steve Serby of the NY Post about many things NFL related. One topic, was the Jets trade for Tim Tebow. Here is what he had to say, along with Serby’s questions:

Q: Tim Tebow and Mark Sanchez. Can the Jets make it work?

A: Oh yeah. I thought [Tebow] was a pretty good acquisition. … I think he provides a dimension that’s something to be concerned with.

Q: But he can’t throw the ball.

A: You sound like one of the coaches I used to have telling me what the guy can’t do. I don’t want to hear it. Tell me what the guy does well and let’s try to create something that allows him to flourish. I had a receiver coach one time … “This guy can’t run the delay. This guy can’t run a crosser.” Let’s not run him on a delay, or let’s not run him on a crosser. Let’s run him on what he can run ’cause he’s fast and he can catch the ball. … If I had Tim Tebow, that’s what I would do. I would try to do what he does, which I believe I know what he does.
