the load up and hop isn't going to work for little Timmy in the NFL.
not a very sound argument against Tebow, considering most NFL quarterbacks played for big schools that had very talented receivers
bottomline for QB's is that you want a guy who's smart and learns quickly and has all the physical tools. Tebow has all of that. he's poised. he's very athletic. Vince Young just had the physical tools, none of the mental capabilities, and clearly no maturity. Troy Smith was never really considered to be much of a prospect, which is why he went in the later rounds.
i think the two best comparisons with Tebow is Alex Smith and Steve McNair. we'll see whose career he more closely resembles
