The 26-year-old Tebow gained employment with ESPN as a college football analyst roughly four months after getting axed by the New England Patriots last August.
“He’s the second-most efficient passer ever to play college football,” said Meyer, 50, who coached Tebow in Gainesville from 2006 through 2009.
“He had really good personnel around him (at Florida) and we utilized his skill very well. I think in a traditional setting, it is difficult, but there’s a lot of non-traditional offenses now in the NFL. He’ll be successful in whatever he does, but he’s such a good player. I just wish it would work out for him.”
Tebow tossed 17 touchdowns, against nine picks, for 2,422 yards in 14 starts as a Denver Bronco.
More importantly, the embattled chucker guided Denver to a 7-4 record and cemented a playoff victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in January 2012.
A proven winner on both the collegiate and professional levels, Tebow remains determined to play quarterback in the NFL.
With Ryan Mallett serving as Tom Brady’s backup, the 6-foot-3, 235-pound Tebow was destined to operate a Chelsea brothel before receiving any real time as a field general in Foxborough.
Rather than inking a deal with New England, Tebow should have sought a job with a CFL or AFL franchise and continued practicing as a passer.
Despite throwing like a glorified version of Corky Thatcher, the former Gator is an upstanding human being who is built to prevail on the gridiron.
Unfortunately, refusing to compete in other leagues, Tebow is being restrained by his own moxie and drive.
Oftentimes in life, an individual needs to retreat before advancing.
Collecting more dust on his left arm, Tebow’s willpower and confidence has proven to be a hindrance.
Struggling to find work as a free agent signal-caller, Tebow must go to the CFL or AFL to keep his NFL dream alive.
Evidently, unwilling to switch positions or perform elsewhere, things aren’t going to “work out for” Tim Tebow.by
