Former Grey Cup winner says the league passing system will not suit Tebow at all.
As the critics of Tim Tebow continue to pile on the misery for the unconventional Quarterback this week, it was the turn of former CFL and NFL legend Warren Moon, who said that the league’s pass heavy offences are only going to hamper Tebow’s chances of making it in the league.
The 25 year old has been targeted throughout his professional career due to his awkward and poor throwing style, and that Moon says, is the reason behind his potential lack of success in Canada.
Speaking to the New York Daily News, Moon was quick to play down the success Tebow could have in this league.
“You have to be able to throw the ball up there if anything and they throw the ball a lot,” Moon said
“There are only three downs so the passing game is much more important up there.
“You have got to be able to throw it and I think that’s his biggest problem, just being (able) to complete passes, be an accurate passer. I think he’s a really good athlete playing the position but I don’t think that’s enough sometimes.”
Where Tebow will go next is still a hot topic for debate, some believe that a change of position is needed for him to have a productive NFL career, while a trip to Canada or Arena football may be more possible if he is adamant at playing Quarterback.
A team will eventually take a chance, but it will still be a while before that day comes.
