Mike Ditka Says Tim Tebow can Play Quarterback in the NFL

Unfortunately for Tim Tebow, the only NFL coach who thinks he can still be a starting quarterback, retired over a decade ago.

According to a story via Larry Brown Sports, former Chicago Bears head coach Mike Ditka, is firm believer in the former New York Jets’ ability to be a a quarterback in the National Football League.

“I think [Tebow] can play quarterback in the NFL, but whatever offense you run might have to be tweaked a bit,” the two-time AP NFL Coach of the Year said, via Adam Jahns of the Sun-Times. “This kid is a talent and he proved it in college. He is an outstanding leader.

“Now, does he have an unusual throwing motion? Yes. But there a lot of quarterbacks that didn’t have a perfect throwing motion. Some of them turned out to be great quarterbacks because they were great leaders. I really do think there’s a place for him. If not at quarterback, I think he could play tight end. If I was in the league and coaching today, I would take a chance on him at quarterback.”

I like Ditka, would like to see Tebow get one more shot from a team at being a starting quarterback, but at this point it doesn’t look very likely.
