Each week, our Westwood One football analysts respond to questions posed by listeners right here on WestwoodOneSports.com.
Q: Don P. (Las Vegas, NV) – Being a lefty yourself, can you conjecture as to why after two seasons Tim Tebow still throws like a cave man? (I am ambidextrous and taught my daughter, who is a lefty, to throw a football with heat like a pro!) Being a Broncos fan, I’ve grown to love Tebow and his winning ways, but his throwing motion pains me to watch. I don’t understand why he’s been allowed to continue to play with such poor fundamentals. Surely someone is working with him on it. What are your thoughts? Thanks a ton.
A: I believe a throwing motion should be as natural as possible. You are either born to throw or you aren’t. Tebow tried to change his delivery, but it is hard to teach an old dog new tricks. I agree with what Joe Montana said about Tebow—“Don’t mess with his delivery.” I don’t ever foresee him changing what comes natural, no matter how much they work on it. He’s not playing quarterback because he can throw… he is playing the position because he is a winning football player and a leader.
