Earlier this week Bills head coach Chan Gailey provided some of his thoughts on QB prospect Tim Tebow. He was asked about Tebow again Wednesday and expanded on his initial thoughts.
Talking with the Toronto Globe and Mail following a Breakfast with the Bills event with corporate sponsors and premium seat and club seat ticket holders in downtown Buffalo, Gailey weighed the risks involved if some team were to take Tebow high in the draft.
“You’ve got to decide how much you’re willing to risk, understanding that the reward can be feast or famine,” said Gailey.
“You don’t know the risk and reward factor in all of this right now. Some guys have changed their technique and throwing motion and some guys haven’t. I know one thing, if one guy can I’d bet on him.”
It sounds as if Gailey recognizes that Tebow is a risk knowing he’s trying to revamp his entire passing motion at the highest level of football. But he along with a lot of other NFL team executives do not seem to be shying away from Tebow all that much.
There appears to be an inherent belief on the part of a good number of NFL talent evaluators that Tebow can will himself to do just about anything. And that’s why a lot of NFL coaches do not appear to have an issue with betting on him.
