Thanks Will: 23 down and many more to go!
I never said the same.
What up with you and putting words in other's mouths ???
Will claims the Read/Option is the same as a Pocket-passer using audibles and check-downs... Will wrote:
"But . . . then again . . . that is basically what a pocket passer does when he calls audibles at the line of scrimmage.
And . . . then . . . goes through his check downs"
No Will, not the same at all. In the R/O the running play and ball carrier is not decided until AFTER the snap and AFTER the DE (and sometimes CB) commit to their after-snap positioning.
And please stop spamming my bulletin board. There's nothing you've said here that isn't more appropriate on the threads.
let me know if you got my message.
@Will, you said: "If Josh McDaniels was not able to save him in Denver and New England . . . I seriously doubt that anyone else will be trying again anytime soon."
Tebow's fortunes will rise or fall on the Read/Option offense. If the R/O succeeds across most of the new offenses (Philly, KC, Raiders, Chi, etc) then four or five other struggling head coaches will be doing all they can to jump on the R/O bandwagon. Tebow will be on everybody's short list.
If the R/O fails, Tebow will be hard pressed to find an NFL spot.
Who's running the read/option this season? Philly, Seattle, San Francisco, Carolina, Washington, KC, Chicago, and the Raiders... (I may have missed a couple teams, like Buffalo's partial use of the r/o)
I think Tebow's options are looking pretty good. We'll see real soon. If the new R/O teams start to win more often, Tebow will get rehired as an NFL R/O QB.
Thanks Will: For the Umpteenth time. (22nd :) Who's counting...
i already emailed him, hopefully i can get this fixed soon.
