John Fox Says Tebow Can’t Run A Regular Offense

Since Tim Tebow entered the league there has been ongoing debate about whether he has what it takes to be an NFL quarterback.  A litany of commentators and former players have questioned his ability to throw and make NFL level decisions.  Now his own coach, John Fox of the Broncos, has admitted Tebow can only be successful in an offense set just for him.

Here’s what Fox told NFL.com’s Jeff Darlington:

If we were trying to run a regular offense, he’d be screwed.

Fox Acknowledged that to make the Broncos a winning team with Tebow running the offense required running a very specific offense to suit:

After the loss to Detroit, we decided if Tim is going to be our guy, we can’t do that other crap.  We had to tweak it.

Tebow may be getting results now but when even his own coach says he can’t do anything else you know NFL defensive coordinators will catch up fast.  At that point Tebow won’t be the only one who’s screwed.

    Finally! Been saying all along that Tebow is talented and all, but no NFL team can build an offense around a QB with a unique and unorthdox (by NFL standards) skill set. If he gets hurt you are screwed for the season.

      Successful teams are built around the talent you have available not just a system. Successful football is all about blocking and tackling, running and throwing.
