Tim Tebow Plays Well in a Brawl Free Wednesday


A lot of things have been said about Tim Tebow. Heck, if you read the posts on this site, you know I have been the one to say a lot of them. But, I have to be equal opportunity with the commentary, and give credit where credit is due.

No I am not a convert, and I know it is only practice, but Tim Tebow can be a threat with the long pass. No, he is not always accurate, but when he is with the deep ball, he is a threat.

He showed this at practice on Wednesday, on a day finally not marred by fighting.

During team drills, Tim went 7-11 including a 60 yard TD connection to Patrick Turner, where he beat Antonio Cromartie down the left sideline. Tebow got a couple of first team reps, but that was, as coach Ryan put it, to give him some work on getting the ball out against a top blitz.

Tebow had a second TD during 7 on 7s, hitting Jeff Cumberland from 20 yards out deep on the right side.

Tim looked good, have to give him credit.
