Philadelphia Eagles Rumors: Coach Chip Kelly strongly believes Tim Tebow’s improvement, to spar for quarterback starter job

Many American Football analysts and sports enthusiasts had their doubts when Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly brought quarterback Tim Tebow back to the National Football League (NFL) from the SEC Network, but the franchise’s coach told the reporters that it’s going really well for the former University of Florida superstar.

From the Delaware County Times:

“I have seen an improvement from Tim since the day we got him in terms of his knowledge of what we’re doing, understanding where everybody is,” head coach Chip Kelly said. “There’s a whole process, and for him what we have done is different than what he’s done anywhere else. So in terms of learning our terminology and how we do things, I think each week you’ve seen an incremental bump in him, so we’re excited to see where that takes him and it’ll be a good competition as we get into August.”

“We worked [Tebow] out and we saw improvement from the last time we saw him, had exposure to him live when we played New England when they practice here. When we worked him out, we saw a great deal of improvement with him.” Quarterback Tebow’s experience shouldn’t be that surprisingly shocking, and there’s never been any doubt regarding his professionalism on the league and off the field. However, improvement guarantees nothing, which means that Tebow faces long odds to make it to the Philadelphia Eagles’ final 53-man roster.

 

Since his last appearance in a game for the New York Jets dating back in 2012, Tebow joined the ESPN as an analyst for the SEC Network in 2014, where he primarily worked on “SEC Nation.”

Tim Tebow was originally a first-round selection (25th overall) of the Denver Broncos in the 2010 NFL Draft, the 6-foot-3, 236-pound quarterback has appeared in 35 games with 16 starts.

    If Chip gives Tebow more than a 16 game chance, he will have a QB.Than even the critics will shut up. Or will they. He could win a SB and they would still have something to complain about. Probably that he won only because the offense and defense were great. Sigh.

      Some of that is just the way things are. Terry Bradshaw never spent any time in Pittsburgh except when he had to. Steelers Fans treated him so shabbily. When they Won a Super Bowl suddenly the Steel City “loved” him. He still didn’t spend any more time there than he absolutely had to because he decided if that’s how they were going to be he didn’t need that kind of “friends”.

      On the larger scale, Bradshaw Won 4 Super Bowls, 8 Division Championships, NFL MVP, 2 Super Bowl MVPs and is in the Hall of Fame. The very same people who dump on Tim as being a bad Quarterback call Bradshaw either Bad or Mediocre.

      By the way, his Completion % his Rookie Year was 38%. His Career was 51.9%. The same Fantasy idiots who pick on Tim use that to say Bradshaw wasn’t any good.

      Meanwhile they keep defending QBs who rack up statistics but not Wins and lay all of the blame on someone else.

      None of these people, including many who write about NFL for a living, know absolutely nothing about what Wins Football Games. It’s why Tim looks pretty good with Cold hard Football Facts Real QBR. It is based on nothing but what Wins Football Games and it is the most accurate reflection of that anywhere. It’s the only QB Rating System that is even close to being any good. But even though Sports Illustrated has use it others won’t adopt it, partly because it shows Tim as being a pretty good NFL QB, partly because it shows the fallacy of what the Fantasy leaguers use and partly because ESPN has enough clout to get theirs used as the defacto standard.

      I know Tim’s Detractors is a huge topic here. But they shouldn’t concern anyone here. Almost nobody agrees with them in poll after poll and, when you get right down to looking at how they look at the Game of Football, not just Tim, the fact is, the’re completely ignorant about the Game.

        Thanks Brandi for bringing up coldhardfootballfacts.com. IIRC back when Tim was with the Jets CHFF crunched the numbers and showed Tim was about the 15th best QB in the league and if the Jets had started him they would have made the playoffs that year. I honestly believe if Tim were given the reins and allowed to develop for a couple seasons he would contend for a championship. No other QB has been expected to win it all in their first season in the NFL.

        As for Terry Bradshaw, he is one funny guy and I like him. He claims if the Duck Dynasty patriarch had not left college to hunt ducks full time he would never have had the chance to be the starting quarterback!

          Holy cow, I just looked Phil Robertson and I guess it’s true.

          I spent a summer in Ruston, LA, once, where Louisiana Tech is, and kinda liked it. I grew up in the mountains and Louisiana is like another world.

        • Sage says:

          From Wikipedia re/ Phil Robertson:

          As an athlete in high school, Robertson was all-state in football, baseball, and track, which afforded him the opportunity to attend Louisiana Tech in Ruston on a football scholarship in the late 1960s.[10] At Tech, he played first-string quarterback for the Bulldogs, ahead of Pro Football Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw,[11][12] the first overall pick in the 1970 NFL Draft. When he arrived at Tech in 1966, Bradshaw caused a media frenzy on account of his reputation of being a football sensation from nearby Shreveport.[13][14] Robertson was a year ahead of Bradshaw, and was the starter for two seasons in 1966 and 1967, and chose not to play in 1968.[15]

          In his time at Louisiana Tech, Robertson completed 179 of 411 passing attempts for 2,237 yards. He threw 12 touchdowns, but had 34 interceptions.[10] It was thought Robertson had the potential for a pro career, but Robertson was more interested in hunting.[10] Bradshaw once remarked about Robertson’s love of hunting, saying “… Phil Robertson, loved hunting more than he loved football. He’d come to practice directly from the woods, squirrel tails hanging out of his pockets, duck feathers on his clothes. Clearly he was a fine shot, so no one complained too much.”[16]

          When Paul Harvey approached Robertson with a recruitment to play professionally for the Washington Redskins, he declined because football conflicted with his hunting. Besides, football was only about holding up his scholarship to him, while Bradshaw practically lived and breathed the sport.[14] Robertson put it in this way: “Terry went for the bucks, and I chased after the ducks.”[10]

            Sage: And now you probably have a whole new appreciation for “Duck Dynasty”…have been know to watch it at times b/c he speaks his mind even if not PC (They have been on The 700 Club too)! Like Paul Harvey used to say: “Now you know the rest of the story!”:D

        Bradshaw also threw longer passes like Tebow did with a lower completion percentage. This list of QBs shows that as the completion percentage goes up the yards per completion goes down.
        http://tebowsfirst16.com/avgyards.html
        The NFL QBR is mostly based on completion.
        Tebow threw 19 TDs in 374 attempts with 47.3%, 9 ints averaging a TD every 19.6 attempts 15.3 yards per completion scoring every 9.3 completions QBR 78.49
        Bradford threw 18 TDs in 590 attempts with 60%, 15 ints averaging a TD every 32.77 attempts 9.92 yards per completion scoring every 19.66 completions. QBR 76.46
        The QBR system of rating QBs is rigged to favor high completion percentages. Tebow scored more times than Bradford with 216 fewer pass attempts and fewer interceptions and only rated 2 points higher. The NFL QBR formula is trash to put it mildly. It penalizes QBs that pass aggressively and score often. It rewards QBs that throw less than 10 yards, pad their completion percentage and rarely score.

        • TheMascotArmy says:

          I think qbr is one of the reasons espn bashes Tebow. If I remember right, qbr is their baby, and Tebow highlights its worthlessness.

          • David says:

            He certainly proved that you don’t need a high completion percentage to be a high scoring passer. He scored more TDS per completion in 2010 than every NFL QB with a 50% completion percentage because he threw the ball 15.95 yards per catch. These formulas don’t give enough credit for throwing over the heads of the defense, low turnovers or scoring often.

    WOW ! I came across this HISTORIC Tebow Review WITH supportive links of:

    Is Tim Tebow the Real-Life Rocky Balboa?

    “I believe in Tim Tebow the person. And I believe in Tim Tebow the quarterback. I believe I can see Tebow running through the streets of Philadelphia and up those museum steps anytime now. Do you believe it?”

      Thanks for the info. David O. and didn’t know they play that when the team goes on the field…”as Sage would say: Eye of the tiger!”
