What type of twisted world do we live in where Jason Taylor gets to pretend like he's a quarterback guru? Taylor and the Dolphins are 0-5, but he has the audacity to start picking apart Tim Tebow's shortcomings?
Maybe Taylor should use his quarterback expertise to provide some constructive criticism to his own train wreck of a quarterback. Taylor had this to say about the Broncos' new quarterback under center:
He’s a little different. He’s done it for a long time. He’s a big guy. He’s put together pretty well. Built like a linebacker really and he runs like one. There may come a point in time he’s told he needs to be more of a pocket passer or he learns that he needs to be more of a pocket passer, whatever. But in the meantime, if that’s the way he makes plays to win the games for them, then I’m sure he’ll continue to do it.
Taylor's comments are spot on. Had they come from someone who was in a position to do anything but hang his head in shame, they might be taken more seriously.
The fact of the matter is, he's not. Tebow's not the quarterback of the future, but he's going to come away with a victory in this one. The Dolphins allow 284 YPG. It's shocking that Taylor feels confident picking apart anyone's ability as a pocket passer. His defense can't stop anyone.
Taylor's team is dejected. Once a team reaches 0-5, they are supposed to start playing the blame game with each other, not taking shots at opposing quarterbacks.
The Dolphins already face an uphill battle. Why would he add fuel to the Tebow fire? He's a guy who takes criticism to heart and writing him off as nothing more than a linebacker on the other side of the ball is a recipe for disaster.
When the Broncos hand Taylor and the Dolphins their sixth consecutive loss, it will be interesting to see what type of holes he sees in Eli Manning's game the following week.
The Dolphins are going to be looking for a quarterback this offseason. After putting such QB knowledge like this on display, the Dolphins will certainly bring him in to consult them on which prospect they should pursue through the draft.
