Jeremiah: QBs going mobile
Everyone knows Tim Tebow and Cam Newton can run. But they're just the tip of the iceberg. Daniel Jeremiah says a new era of mobile QBs is dawning More ...
Your wish is our command, Tony. Truth be told, we almost led this post off by slapping an "Embattled" in front of Sparano's title. We're not quite to that point yet, but zero touchdowns in 12 quarters of preseason action certainly hasn't made a good first impression with Jets fans.
Of course, you could study that same gametape and conclude Tebow's never appeared further away from being a competent NFL quarterback. He finished 4-of-14 passing for 55 yards and an interception against a bunch of backups. Another errant pass could've gone for a pick six.
Sparano is right to seek the positives, but he can't ignore the negatives.
