    Urban Meyer urges the Jets to let Tim Tebow play

    Urban Meyer, who coached Tim Tebow at Florida, has always insisted that Tebow can be an NFL star. He just wants to see an NFL team let Tebow run his offense, his way.

    Asked on ESPN what the Jets should do with Tebow, Meyer said the same spread offense he runs in college would “absolutely” work in the NFL, and that the biggest thing is an NFL coach just needs to trust Tebow to take over games himself.

    “Let him play,” Meyer said. “Just let him play.”

    Asked if that’s what the Broncos did, Meyer answered, “Not really.” According to Meyer, the Broncos were too often too conservative with Tebow, and when the Denver offense was at its best — as it was in the playoff win over Pittsburgh — that’s when Tebow was given the freedom to run the offense his own way, hurting defenses with his feet and then making plays with his arm when defenses had to stop the run.

    “When they had success I think they did,” Meyer said. “When you started seeing him throw against those easy coverages it was because they had to stop the run.”

    It remains to be seen whether the Jets will let Tebow play, but the current plan to use him in the Wildcat as the backup to Mark Sanchez doesn’t seem consistent with what Meyer is urging. To really make the most of Tebow’s skill set, an NFL team would need to completely install an entire offense around him, not use his plays as a backup plan. The Jets may be ready to let Tebow play 20 snaps a game, but they’re not ready to hand the offense over to him completely.

    Sorry Urban, but your goofy-*** offense is not a long term solution for any NFL team.

    Tebow is a gadget offense weapon and that's how he will be used. Hopefully he gets to line-up as a H-Back in some formations, which is a role that he should excel in.

    While the college spread-option offense has been shown to fail at the NFL level, I don't think there's ever been another QB with the particular combination of physical tools that Tebow possesses. It would be interesting to see a team tailor it's offense around Tebow- but it would have to be a team with no other options at QB, like last year's Colts team. They would have had nothing to lose in trying the Tebow offense last year had he been on the team. The only teams I can see in a similar situation this season are the Browns and the Jaguars. But they have McColt and and Gabbert/Henne respectively, so they are interested in finding out whether those guys are legit. Best Tebow can hope for is to crack the starting line up this year for whatever reason, keep the job and tweak the offense as the weeks go along, and have a polished Tebow offense next season.

    meyer might be just trying to be media friendly seeing as tebow had the whole sports media fawning over him last season, it is good press to continue praising him even though he has accomplished nothing too special.

    Physically, Cam Newton has everything Tebow has and more.

    This, and his opinion relating to the pros doesn't hold much value.

    After they got Tebow'd right? After one of Tebow's best statistical games right?

    I got a quote.
