Throughout the preseason, there has been a lot of talk about how Tim Tebow throws the football. One of the biggest reasons for this is that we have seen him throw the football a lot. Last night, he dropped back around 20 times. Chris Collinsworth went on for a while about Tim Tebow’s mechanics, which a lot of people have done. A big reason was the fact that we had so much time to watch him drop back. All he has played in the preseason was conventional quarterback. And for the most part, it has not been good.

There is one silver lining. In the regular season, Tim Tebow will not play much conventional quarterback, if any at all.

Again, Tebow dropped back around 20 times last night in the game against the Panthers. I think it will be a lot of he drops back in a traditional quarterback set 20 times all season. He will be running the wildly secretive, yet obvious to everyone, read option, better known as the “Wildcat”.
