Greg Cosell tweets about Tim Tebow, Lebron James needs to follow Greg

Time to return to Tebow with what’s now out there. Must understand college + NFL game totally different. Physical attributes define success.

More Tebow: To play consistent NFL QM must be able to pass. Many elements comprise that: timing, anticipation, accuracy, to quantify a few.

Tebow hurt by no off-season. At this point does everything too slowly: drop, decision making, delivery. Elongated delivery major problem.

Tebow limited arm strength does not compensate for slow delivery. At thsi point he must be broken down mechanically + built from scratch.

More Tebow: Always remember physical traits define NFL play not vague concepts of winning or hard work. Have to make throws. That’s the job.

Would never say Tebow has no chance but major work in progress. Had him a late round pick/FA coming out. Did not seee skills that projected.

Interesting skill set comparison re: Tebow + V, Young. What made them special in college didn’t project. Running not relevant, it’s passing.

Individual traits, both physical + mental (i.e., pre + post snap decision making, etc) determine consistent high level QB play over time.

More QB: Won/loss record a function of many elements, some specific to QB play, some not. Attributes + traits most important in evaluation.

I can’t speak for how others evaluate QB position. My beliefs primarily based on 20 yrs of NFL tape study. It’s a constant learning process.

2 traits re:elite NFL QB play: Must function + throw effectively w/bodies around you, + willingness to make stick throws into tight windows.

Sooners in the NFL? Where are the great defensive stars?

2 threads closed on ouinsider about this. Tom Casale let loose on a broadcast and questioned why OU has such stout defenses and yet, very few of those players become stars in the NFL.


NFL cuts time between draft picks in first and second rounds

PHILADELPHIA — The NFL announced several revisions to its annual college draft on Tuesday, including cutting the time between picks in the first round of selections.

The time allocated for each club to make selections in the first round of the draft has been reduced from 15 minutes to 10 after a 2007 record round of 6 hours and 8 minutes. The NFL also moved the starting time of the draft from noon EDT to 3 p.m. and limited the first day to two rounds instead of three.

“We believe this will make for a more streamlined and efficient draft,” commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement issued during the league owners meetings in Philadelphia.

The changes also apply to the second round, which will go from 10 minutes to seven between choices for next year’s draft, which will be held April 26-27 at Radio City Music Hall in New York.

In recent years, teams have often used most of the 15 minutes in the first round, entertaining trade offers or making them.

The time between picks will stay at five minutes for the last five rounds, which will take place on Sunday. The second day of the draft will now start at 10 a.m. instead of 11.

Both draft days will be televised by ESPN and the NFL Network.


Another Reason ESPN SUCKS, talking about the Patriots run game

They asked Clayton and Salisbury if the Pats can keep winning with an inconsistent run game

OK they are 7th in the f’n NFL in rush yards per game
