We’ve seen the running quarterbacks in this league mandate a spy defender with the great potential of them taking off for big time yardage. But with Denver’s Tim Tebow, Bills head coach Chan Gailey says the traditional spy doesn’t apply.
“I think there’s always a form of a spy,” said Gailey in reference to Tebow. “It’s not your typical spy that people see when a defense is playing against a Vince Young or a Michael Vick. Kordell Stewart when I had him in Pittsburgh opponents would have a spy. The spies (with Tebow) are really the two linebackers on either side because you always have to be aware of him keeping the ball after faking the hand-off coming out the back side, so there’s always that spy on him, but you can’t have just one. You’ve got to have them on each side.”
