I don’t think it is so much that Tebow can’t play quarterback, it is that no team to date has treated him like a quarterback.
They treat him like a prop, so he has never had an opportunity to develop traditional quarterback skills like a lot of other young quarterbacks, so I agree with Namath on this one.
“God forbid something happens to Sanchez. See, this is where I’m confused. I don’t think the second guy really is Tebow,” Namath told ESPN.com.
“I don’t think he can consistently play the quarterback position as we know it as opposed to the Wildcat without improving his passing accuracy,” Namath said of Tebow. “You’ve got to be more accurate than that today, and Tim’s got a big motion. He’s working on it, and he can improve it. So that remains to be seen.”
