Asked on ESPN 101 in St. Louis whether Tebow can be a good NFL quarterback, Lloyd said he isn’t so sure.
“I don’t know,” Lloyd said, via SportsRadioInterviews.com. “I think only time will tell with that style of play. I think it is effective last Sunday, but I just don’t know how effective that style can be over the course of long games and playing formidable opponents.”
Asked about Tebow’s mechanics, Lloyd noted that the long windup in Tebow’s throwing motion can mean the ball doesn’t get to the receiver when he’s open.
“Any delay in delivering the ball . . . just throws a monkey wrench into all the time and anything you are trying to accomplish down the field,” Lloyd said.
We’ll see if Lloyd is right about Tebow struggling against “formidable opponents” when the Lions visit Denver on Sunday.
