Wyche pumping up Tebow

Posted by Chris Brown on February 23, 2010 – 1:25 pm

In the wake of the news that Tim Tebow has been revamping his throwing mechanics, former Bills quarterbacks coach, Sam Wyche, who is one of four current and former NFL coaches assisting the Florida Heisman Trophy winner, believes Tebow is ready to play QB in the NFL.

“If this guy can’t be a starting quarterback in the NFL,” Wyche told the St. Petersburg Times, “then I was in the wrong profession for a lot of years.”

Wyche maintains that between his work with Tebow in the classroom and on the field that his passing mechanics are reformed and his knowledge of defensive concepts are more advanced than has been publicized.

“He’s as smart as anyone,” Wyche said. “I was around Montana and Boomer, and they would be at the top of the list of understand theory coming out of college. They understood concepts. This guy is right with them. I hope he gets a good coordinator and a good quarterback coach. If not, he’ll be smarter than they are.”

As part of Tebow’s coaching contingent, it’s hard not to think that Wyche has an obvious bias in his evaluation of Tebow. But doubting that kid is something I wouldn’t do.

Naturally his pro day in mid-March will be the end all be all in determining whether he has altered his throwing mechanics to effectively suit the NFL game.
