The future of American football quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League (NFL) remains uncertain. Although by all accounts, he has been showing tremendous improvement under the tutelage of coach Chip Kelly as far as improving his throwing skill is concerned.

CBS noted a stark improvement in Tebow’s throwing motion, which the report said, was far better than it was two years ago. The report described the hugely religious Tebow as looking sharper than expected,

The former Heisman Trophy winner told the media in an interview at the Eagles’ OTAs at the NovaCare Complex, “It’s a lot of work. It’s science, mechanics, and fundamentals. You go back to the basics and early teaching yoursel the process (of throwing a football again). “It’s feet, it starts with your feet. There have been a bunch of pitchers out there with us, working on the same things. I feel a lot more comfortable throwing the ball. The ability to anticipate and ability to throw intermediate routes and get the ball out quicker. I feel comfortable with a lot of different things that I’m doing.”

He said his training with Chip Kelly is a lot of fun as he further fine-tunes his skills to adapt to the Eagle’s high-energy offense.

Tebow’s progress was also noted by Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur who commented, “He is getting better every day, He works extremely hard. He’s getting comfortable in what we do. He is having more good plays than bad plays out here.”

  Tebow regains his confidence, he also dreams that coach Chip Kelly could revive his career. After all in was in the 2013 NFL camp when he threw his last pass. In fact, he has been getting a rough start in the Eagle’s OTAs.

Tebow on Chip Kelly

Tebow has good words for his new coach. In an interview with Fox Sports, the quarterback was brimming with confidence Chip Kelly would play a major factor for his comeback and give him a roster with the Philadelphia Eagles.

He spoke of Kelly, “I think he’s the kind of coach who plays to a player’s strengths,. And not just the quarterbacks, but every player. He gets the most out of each player.”

Tebow further stated, “I love this offense,” Tebow said. “I love (Kelly’s) innovations. He’s changed how’s the game been played.”

But it’s still a long way for Tebow. He will be competing against Matt Barkley for the Eagle’s third quarterback spot. Although it is a bit of good news for Tebow that Chip Kelly sometimes carry more than three quarterbacks in a season, which not most NFL teams do.

Still, Tebow has much to get excited playing under Chip Kelly. He believes that Kelly’s non-traditional offense will bring out the best in him.

Let’s wait what’s in store for the 27-year-old Tebow this season.

      David O.: No wonder he has God’s favor/blessing…one of the few who walks the walk; i.e., even shining shoes for “special needs” individual so they can go to a prom in which he organized…very impressed w/that!:)

    Lost in all the noise at the time…John Elway said there’s alot of talk about Tim’s “mechanics” but most is overblown. Really all he needed was some work on how to place and move his feet and the rest would follow.

    Unfortunately with Tim it’s always been a case of everything getting magnified and taking on a life of its own. Demaryius Thomas makes negative comments. It becomes a big story. USA Today Sports calls him on it and points out that had Thomas himself been healthy and Played he would have led the league in Receptions and Yards per catch. DT backtracks. All of that gets ignored and all that lives on is the story “Even Tebow’s own Receivers didn’t like Playing with him”.

    Obviously nothing will change that other than Tim Playing and the Media getting rich off airing it. Bad stories always get the Press. Feel Good ones rarely do. But the Polls have always shown the reality that overwhelming numbers are Tim Tebow Believers. (Which is why when the Media can make money off his Playing they do so hungrily. When he’s not, all there is to make money on is the negative.)

      Eagles OTA Practice Notes: Walter Thurmond is making plays
      By Brandon Lee Gowton  @BrandonGowton on Jun 9, 2015, 4:51p

      ” • TEBOW TIME: He out ran the defense and got to the pylon for a rushing touchdown on a red zone play. Unstoppable. He also hit UDFA receiver Rasheed Bailey on a touchdown pass.

      • Nelson Agholor caught a screen pass from Tebow and looked good in space. Obviously no one was allowed to tackle him, but his shiftiness was on display.”


      This was in response to the garbage about Tebow from this source:


      “It was to be the first of several well-executed deep forays by Sanchez on a day in which Sam Bradford, recovering from yet another ACL tear, was noteworthy for how little he actually did in the second half of the session, as Tim Tebow predictably delivered a few scuds into the ground, and Matt Barkley looked the part of a third quarterback, at best.”

        For what it’s worth, La Canfora has followed me on Twitter for a couple years. So he certainly sees something of the “other side”.

      • ck says:

        David O.: Read the link/article and that guy is really “FULL OF IT” EXCEPT HE DID SAY THAT SANCHEZ HAS A “PREPONDERANCE OF INTERCEPTS”!!! At least that part IS TRUE! Agree w/u completely and see why u r a little riled up…anyway, somebody in the comment section stated: “NO KNEES AND BUTT FUMBLES” (Bradford vs Sanchez, obviously). Think the more insecure he is the more he over inflates himself (Sanchez that is)!!! We know who is able to compete in the red zone and elsewhere and that is TEBOW!!!

    • David says:

      Tebow threw more yards and TDS per completion to Thomas in 2011 than Manning did in 2012. Of course, Manning got to throw more times and Thomas played the whole season, so no one notices this fact.
      2011 4 TDS in 32 catches every 8 completions 551 yds averaging 17.2 yds
      Tebow added 10 more completions and 297 yards and 1 TD in the playoffs.
      2012 10 TDs in 94 catches every 9.4 completions 1434 yds averaging 15.25 yds. Manning added 3 completions for 37 yds and 1 TD in the playoff game.
      With Tebow, Thomas also missed 2 TDs in the Minnesota and Chicago games that hit him in the hands and sent both games into overtime. His drop rate in 2011 was 13.5%. He got better the next year.

        David: Great stats and guess that is why they have to bolster themselves w/lies due to the TRUTH!!! Also, makes you wonder if they were missing on purpose in order to please ELROT?!!! 🙁
