Now that he had to come in and win any one over really, but the Daily News have a few snippets from coaches on Tebows continued improvement as an NFL Quarterback and his tireless work ethic that I hope rubs off on certain other players on this football team:
think he can be very good," Cavanaugh told the Daily News. "I was pleasantly surprised when I saw him over an extended period of time . . . not just watching him play on film. I think he’s certainly got the arm strength. He has good mechanics. They’re getting better every day."
"I think with Tim, he’s more focused right now in the offseason on just working on the fundamentals of trying to be rhythmic in the pocket," Cavanaugh said. "So (he) can be using the mechanics that (he) wants to be using. We started to toy a little bit with some of the other things that will happen to you . . . And he’s shown great progress. I’m real pleased with him."
I've always been a fan of this move and make no apologies for it, I honestly think that he can really help us win some football games and his attitude around the locker room in relation to team work, work ethic and just doing the right thing on and off the field will really help this group of players. We do have to worry about Tebowmania and everything that brings to an already media centered spotlight in New York, but the one thing we didn't have to worry about was Tebow not giving 100% every single second he is in the facility:
"He doesn’t let a day go by when he’s not focused on trying to get better at something," Cavanaugh said. "When you’re in that role as a backup, you take every rep, every drill, every offseason practice or meeting to get better. . . . The playing time? Nobody knows how much it’s going to be. So I don’t think we worry about that."
"The perfect scenario is that... we win enough games to get into the playoffs, go deep into the playoffs and have a chance to win a Super Bowl," Cavanaugh added. "I want our quarterbacks to be a part of it... I’m not concerned at all about playing time."
