Tim Tebow is on a roll, but he’s no Cam Newton according to Panthers receiver Steve Smith.
“You can’t compare Cam to Tebow. I think Cam’s a more complete player,” Smith said via Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer.
“Tebow has the wins. But everybody wants to crown Tebow. Yes, he has the will to win. I think Tebow is no different than any other professional. But Tebow has a great opportunity to play behind a great defense.”
Florio might disagree, but I find it hard to argue with Smith. It doesn’t detract from Tebow to say that Newton is a far more advanced in his development as a quarterback right now than Tebow. Smith sums it up like a personnel evaluator would.
“Versatile would mean you can throw the ball very accurately, run the ball, create things,” Smith said. “And the only thing [Tebow’s] creating is running,” Smith said. “He isn’t very accurate. You watch him, I don’t think 3-for-10 (after) three quarters is a versatile quarterback.”
