With Tim Tebow’s success scrambling with the football this past Friday night, the questions have started to surface. Will Tim Tebow have a bigger role during a game if pass protection is breaking down? It’s a legitimate question. Even the biggest cynics, like myself, had to give him credit for the way he could turn something into nothing.

So, the questions were posed to Tony Sparano, and Rex Ryan, and we received opposite messages. Which leads me to one conclusion.

An expanded role for Tim Tebow is ABSOLUTELY a possibility when the line is not playing well.

Let’s first take a look at exactly what they said.

When coach Ryan was asked, he advised that they were “Open to anything”.

Coach Sparano had this to say:

“No, not in that situation,” Sparano said. “Mark Sanchez scrambled for a first down the other day, too, which I was impressed with. Mark is a good athlete and he is our quarterback. I thought he has been playing well right now for us, and I don’t see that kind of scenario at all out there.”

Sparano went on the mimick fishing to the reporter that asked the question, as if to say they were fishing for a story. Turn the page and we will talk more about why the responses were the way they were.
