    Has Todd McShay played football for anywhere besides HS?? I have lost all respect for he and (S)Mel Di(a)per ever since they BOTH failed to rank Toby Gerhart in their Top 5 List...

    Let those weak-hearts & the sumocriticize Tebow all they want...the fire burns deep inside this dude...it was a Caste Busting U.S.Presidency...just maybe it can happen in this Draft?? Shipley, Cooper, Decker, Gerhart, Sharp, Tebow, LeFevour...etc LeFevour BTW could be BIG-TIMING it soon! Let them put that in their pipe & smoke it!

    I hope all the dwfs remember that Kiper and McShay both thought Russell was a great pick for the Raiders.... but they seem to have short memories and think these guys are experts.Edited by: dwid

    <h1>Tim Tebow is ready for NFL, old Bucs coach Sam Wyche says</h1>


    The dismantling of a legend is in full force. These days, it is easy
    to wonder if Tim Tebow ever played football at all.

    Listen, and
    you will hear about the long, loopy flaw in his delivery. Read, and you
    will find those who question his feet, his arm and his ability to read
    an opposing defense. Pay attention, and you will find those who think
    any NFL team interested in drafting Tebow is wasting its time.

    Then
    there is Sam Wyche, who suggests the critics should worry more about
    their accuracy than Tebow's.

    "If this guy can't be a starting
    quarterback in the NFL," said Wyche, a former Bucs coach, "then I was in
    the wrong profession for a lot of years."

    Say this much for
    Wyche. He didn't win enough games in Tampa Bay (23 in four years), but
    he knows what a quarterback looks like. Once, in San Francisco, he was
    Joe Montana's quarterback coach. Once, in Cincinnati, he was Boomer
    Esiason's head coach.

    These days, Wyche is part of Tebow's pit
    crew, the collection of coaches in charge of reinventing Tebow's passing
    mechanics. Last month, Wyche and Tebow spent two days at a facility in
    Franklin, Tenn., working in the classroom and on the field.

    In the
    end, Wyche was impressed with what he saw. And if the reports out of
    Franklin are correct, NFL scouts might do well to give Tebow another
    look when he has his pro day (March 17).

    "Would I draft him?"
    Wyche said. "Absolutely. Sure. If he's not taken early, somebody is
    going to be called a genius for taking him wherever he goes."

    Perhaps
    you have heard different reports, haven't you? Since the end of the
    season, skeptics have lined up to talk about the varied reasons why
    Tebow will not succeed in the NFL. At times, the talk was so harsh you
    wondered if those 47 games Tebow's Florida team won was a misprint, or
    if his 88 touchdown passes were just a rumor.

    Some of that,
    naturally, is the way the draft process dissects a player. But some of
    it seems to be a backlash toward a player who was praised so often in
    college.

    Give Tebow credit for this much: He has at least been on a
    quest to get better. How many quarterbacks who were stars in college
    can say that? Former NFL offensive coordinator Zeke Bratkowski is the
    chief mechanic, but Montreal Alouettes coach Marc Trestman and Arizona
    State offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone have offered input, too.

    As
    for Wyche, he became involved when Tony Dungy, the coach who replaced
    him in Tampa, recommended him to Bob Tebow, Tim's father. Wyche, now 65
    and a county council member in Pickins, S.C., dusted off his whistle and
    came aboard.

    "He's accurate," Wyche said of Tebow. "He's smart.
    He anticipates well. He's a commander in the huddle. He has good
    footwork. "¦ He has agility. He has athleticism. So many things are right
    about this guy."

    Wyche said their sessions began in the
    classroom. What does it mean when the free safety is in the middle? (It
    means a defense can't outnumber you.) What does it mean when the corner
    is bent at the waist? (Probably zone coverage, because it's not a good
    man technique.) What does it mean when the corner plays inside
    technique? (He doesn't have safety help.)

    "He's as smart as
    anyone," Wyche said. "I was around Montana and Boomer, and they would be
    at the top of the list of understand theory coming out of college. They
    understood concepts. This guy is right with them. I hope he gets a good
    coordinator and a good quarterback coach. If not, he'll be smarter than
    they are."

    Arm strength? Wyche says Tebow will have one of the
    strongest arms in the league. Footwork? Wyche says it's as good as
    anyone's. Accuracy? Along with intelligence, Wyche says that's Tebow's
    strongest asset.

    Ah, but then there is Tebow's much-discussed
    delivery. While at Florida, there were a lot of plays when Tebow wound
    up like a pitcher and threw the ball like a shot-putter.

    Wyche
    admits that if he knew nothing more than what he was seeing on film,
    that would concern him. As it is, Wyche thinks Tebow will quickly
    overcome his flaws in the manner that former NFL star Randall Cunningham
    did when he came out of college with his own awkward delivery.

    "Everyone
    wants to talk about his long windup and dropping the ball," Wyche said.
    "But if he takes the ball up with two hands, which he didn't do in
    college, you have to put it in the same spot near your ear every time.
    If you wind up (as Tebow did at Florida), you get a different release
    point every time.

    "Boy, he worked hard at it. He could tell when
    he tried and it wasn't right. He was coaching himself."

    So where
    is Tebow going to be drafted? First round? Third round? As an H-back?

    Wherever
    it is, Wyche said, he hopes there is a veteran there who can mentor him
    for a year or so.

    "Paul Brown used to say to me, 'Don't tell me
    about how good an athlete a guy is. Tell me about how good a football
    player he is.' I think Tebow is one of the elite."

    So, you ask
    Wyche. Is Tebow better than anyone you coached in Tampa Bay?

    "Well,
    yeah."

    Just got done watching Tony Dungy and Marcellus Wiley rip on Tebow mercilessly(NFL Live). It was almost immoral. Wiley went so far as to call him a mascot and they both laughed. If ever letters should be sent to ESPN this is the time. I would fire them both.

    I thought Dungy said he would pick Tebow over any quarterback in the draft.

    If Tim Tebow is laughed at and callously referred to as a "mascot," I wonder what that would make Jamarcus Russell or Vince Young or Jason Campbell"¦the watergirls?

    St. Tony Dungheap was a fairer than average coach to white players, which in the NFL seems to be a formula for prolonged success. Jim Caldwell easily "leading"Â￾ the Colts to the SB this season proved how meaningless Dungheap was to Colts. If Mudd and Manning were to leave, the Colts would be yet another laughable NFL team. Blacks typically wear their female-esq jealousy (and most other unpleasant emotions) on their sleeves. All this "pretending"Â￾ like TT sucks will most likely blow up in their room-brightening-smile-clad faces.

    Just a couple months ago or so Dungy was saying Tebow should be a top 10 pick, and although won't ever be a Peyton Manning type, will cause the defense so many problems because of all the other things he brings to the table. He said he thought Tebow would be a "great" quarterback.

    GWTJ, what did Dungy say? Edited by: Fightingtowin

    It wasn't Dungy that said that. It was Herm Edwards. I saw the piece

    I have never been impressed with Herm Edwards. I have seen the guy many times on ESPN and all the guy does is constantly speak in cliches and say things you can fit on a bumper sticker and he raises his voice at inappropiate moments in a conversation. I really don't have a opinion on him as a football coach but he sucks as a analyst.

    To hell with these caste lackey blowhards!They'd been lucky to push a broom or empty trash at a stadium 40-50 years ago! I've about had my fill of these arrogant, caste-enabled pukes (who don't deserve & didn't earn their positions) trashing White athletes 24x7.[​IMG]

    The same rage can be expressed towards our watered down society, where streams of untermenschen get (AA/quota) hand-outs & swipe jobs from more qualified Whites... who have/can perform 10X better. Be it education (scholarships, admissions) or in the workforce (H-1Bs, AA free-loaders), these bottom feeders get what's deserved by, owed to the White man (by virtue of intelligence, performance, seniority, etc.). My Grandaddy would be rolling over in his grave to see what this Nation has DE-volved into.[​IMG] [​IMG]

    It could be worse, guest301, I listened to him almost every day when he was the Chief's caste-coach. Every other sentence started or ended with "at the end of the day...."

    Yes I have noticed how black analysts constantly overuse that phrase "at the end of the day". It's ok to use that phrase every once in awile but it's become a crutch now similar to "whatever" and "you know what I am saying". I also find it funny how Barkely will constantly use the words "first of all" after he has already made a couple of points in his analysis and procedes to backtrack on everything he just said.

    Tx for correcting me, I was surprised that Dungy would say that so i'm glad to hear it wasn't him.

    Tebow got a 22 on the Wonderlic.

    Here's some info I found on Wiki that some here might find interesting:

    Pat McInally, a graduate of Harvard University, is the only football player to record a confirmed perfect score of 50.[2] Ryan Fitzpatrick, also a Harvard graduate and currently a quarterback with the NFL Buffalo Bills, had also been rumored to have scored a perfect 50 points in only nine minutes.[3] However, Fitzpatrick denied this, saying that he had left at least one of the 50 answer spaces blank.[4] The Wall Street Journal later reported that Fitzpatrick's actual score was 48 but that Fitzpatrick's claim of completing the Wonderlic in only nine minutes was accurate (This report appeared in the September 30, 2005 edition of the WSJ in the Weekend Section). As of 2005, Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Kevin Curtis, a graduate of Utah State University, was reported to be tied with Fitzpatrick and Benjamin Watson of the New England Patriots as having scored a 48, the highest Wonderlic score of any active NFL player.[5] During the 2009 Combine NFL Network's Rich Eisen mentioned that Mike Mamula the "Workout Warrior" scored a 49; USA Today has also reported on this claim.[6]

    On the other hand, some high profile players have scored rather low on the test. Dan Marino and Vince Young both scored 15 on the test, though Vince Young scored a 6 on his first attempt.[7] Marcus Vick, brother of Michael Vick, scored 11. Michael himself scored an average 20.

    A 22 is a little lower than the average QB I think, but around the league average. I'm a slow reader and had heard about the kind of questions that would be on a wonderlic from a friend. I attempted a sample test on my own and scored a 29 the first time. I took another sample test about a year later and scored a 32 which averages to a 30.5. If I was a faster reader I would have done better b/c the majority of the questions aren't very hard.

    The MSM is trying to spin it as if it was a terrible score. It was average. Just trying to tear him down some more.

    Not sure how to read between the lines on this, but it's hard to imagine the Jags passing on Tebow if he's still available when they pick in the second round.

    Jaguars Notebook: Wayne Weaver won't alter draft plan for Tim Tebow

    Jaguars owner Wayne Weaver likes to call Tim Tebow an icon, but indicated Thursday the Jaguars aren't going to deviate from their draft board to select the former Florida quarterback.



    "Personally, I think Tim Tebow is an extraordinary young man and he's an extraordinary athlete. He's going to be successful in the National Football League,"Â￾ Weaver said during an interview before a Team Teal Rally Thursday.


    But he said the Jaguars won't force any picks.


    "What we've got to do is trust our value board in our draft. If we force a pick, then we devalue thousands of hours of work by our scouts. We have to be true to our mission and go take the best player with our pick. When we do that, we get good results,"Â￾ he said.


    He then smiled and said, "We all know we've done it the other way in the past and it didn't work. Shame on you if you don't learn from your mistakes. You stay true to your process."Â￾

    I'm pretty sure I read McNabb's score was 26 recently in an online news article. Where are you getting these Wonderlic scores from Dixie, just curious? Most of the list looks accurate, but I recall McNabb scoring a 26.

    Dixie, I just did a search for "Donovan McNabb wonderlic score" and 14 came back as his score, so I guess that is correct...Yikes not a good score.

    Pennington didn't score very high for a finalist for the Rhodes scholar award. I wonder what Myron Rolle scored?

    Since Rolle's score hasn't been released, it probably wasn't all that good.[​IMG]

    If you remember the time that Mcnabb didn't even know the overtime rules. You could understand a 14 score. Plus his sideline demeanor doesn't seem like a guy who is cerebral. One too many funky chicken dances with the brain dead wide receivers/ tailbacks.... [​IMG] [​IMG]
