The guy who ‘fixed’ Tim Tebow says the QB spent 18 months relearning how to play — and he’s ready to make a comeback

Even though Tim Tebow left Philadelphia without a contract offer from the Eagles after a workout on Monday, momentum seems to be building for a Tebow comeback attempt.

The 27-year-old quarterback hasn’t played in the NFL since 2013, when the New England Patriots cut him before the regular season. 

In the 18 months since, Tebow went on to work for ESPN as a college football commentator. But behind the scenes he has been working with Tom House, a California-based quarterback guru who has worked with Tom Brady.

House told Fox Sports’ Bruce Feldman that he believed he “fixed” Tebow’s throwing motion

In an interview with Mike Tanier of Bleacher Report, House went into more detail about what exactly he meant.

House told Tanier he had been working with Tebow for two and a half hours three times a week since the Patriots cut Tebow in 2013. During that time Tebow has relearned how to throw a football with the proper mechanics.

He said Tebow’s new mechanics were “hard-wired” after 10,000 reps:

I honestly believe that everybody who was trying to help Tim, everybody who thought they “fixed” him, they probably did temporarily fix him. But Tim didn’t have enough repetition for it to become autonomic. When he got into competition, with the stresses and anxieties that come with the competitive situation, he fell back to his old habits.

The difference now is that he has put in the reps. There have been 10,000-plus reps. If he gets a chance to play again and gets back to competition, it’s hard-wired now. He doesn’t have to think about it.

“I can’t see any reason why someone would not at least give him another chance,” he said.

House’s coworker Adam Dedeaux, who has been working with Tebow as well, was even more effusive in his praise in an interview with Ross Jones of Fox Sports. He said Tebow was “remarkably better” now.

“From the moment we started working with him until now, his ability to get the ball out quickly has dramatically improved,” he told Fox. “His ability to spin the ball and to be accurate is better. He also understands when he misfires — he can be able to answer the question why and make the adjustment.”

It’s the job of House and Dedeaux to hype up their client, so these quotes should be taken with a grain of salt to some extent. 

The larger point is that Tebow wants back in the NFL as a quarterback.

    Tim Tebow outscored Sam Bradford 34-19 in their first 16 games of playing time. Philly just traded 2 draft picks for Bradford who has never scored more than 22 times in a season, so what is Tebow worth now that he has improved immensely?

  2. Bigfan says:

    3rd string QB behind Sanchez and Bradford…gotta wheel Barkley in the draft??

    P.S. Browns offered a first round pick for Bradford.
    Buzzy Says : Bradford I think will be traded for something.
