Plenty of people in Jacksonville would love to see quarterback Tim Tebow become one of the newest members of the Jaguars.
One of them isn’t current Jaguars offensive lineman Uche Nwaneri, who has started 28 games over the past two seasons.
In a posting on the team’s official message board (our pal Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union has confirmed through the team that Nwaneri wrote the item), the three-year veteran was candid in his assessment of the former Florida quarterback.
Here’s Nwaneri’s five-point breakdown:
“5. He cant throw. PERIOD.
“4. He cant read any coverage other than probably cover 2 or man cov. PERIOD (the only cov. in college lol).
“3. the QB wildcat WILL NOT WORK IN THIS LEAGUE. PERIOD.
“2. He doesnt know how to take a snap from center, nor is he even comfortable enough to.
“1. HE CANT THROW. and thats really something you either have or not, never seen a qb who couldnt ever throw, just all of a sudden be able to throw just because hes now in the NFL.”
So there you have it. On the very site owned by the team owned by a man who has made clear his interest in acquiring Tebow’s rights, one of the team’s fairly important employees has offered a contrary opinion, in very strong terms.
