For some reason, Corch Meyers keeps saying it:
… At issue is whether Tebow will make it in the NFL as a quarterback.
There is considerable debate. Many wonder if he has the accuracy to thread passes through NFL secondaries. His slow release is another concern. And the fact that he has taken almost all of his snaps out of the shotgun instead of under center is a red flag.
As a concession, Florida Coach Urban Meyer has indicated that he will at least consider installing a few plays that put the quarterback under center instead of in the shotgun.
“I assure you, him playing under center has nothing to do with his draft status with the programs we talked to,” Meyer said. “If it did, we would help him because he earned that. … He will be under center if it helps us win a game.”
If “helps us win a game” means tossing a meaningless TD pass to put the Gators up 49-0 against Charleston Southern, OK, fine. But can anybody in their right mind see the GPOOE™ hunkering down behind center on a third and eight from the LSU fifteen, down by four?
