The day after what might have been the last game ever played by quarterback Brett Favre, another quarterback whom many believe could become the heir to Favre’s throne unofficially launches his pro career, as Senior Bowl week commences in Mobile, Alabama.
Tebow recently spoke with Peter King of SI.com. And though Tebow previously has said he’ll do whatever the team that drafts him wants him to do, it’s clear he’s hoping to be drafted by a team that wants to make him an every-down quarterback.
“I want to show, number one, that I’m a competitor, and I’m not afraid
for teams to see everything about me,” Tebow told King. “My goal is to find just one team,
one out of 32, to believe in me as a quarterback. I’m not just the guy
who can play in the spread offense, or throw a jump pass or run the
triple option. I’m a football junkie. I study it all the time. I’ve
studied every type of offense — pro style, West Coast. Just because I
haven’t played every kind of offense, why can’t I? Why can’t I run the
West Coast? My coaches at Florida didn’t just teach us a system. They
taught us football. So I want the NFL people to put me through
everything. Grind on me, test me. I feel I’ve worked my whole life to
prepare for this.”
