Of course, the NFL is a completely different game regarding the skills required at the quarterback position. The horizontal space is more limited because the hash marks are closer together. The linebackers and defensive backs are much quicker (though many NFL defenders were Tebow's opponents in SEC play). The rules favor passers and mitigate some of the advantages of Tebow's athleticism at the quarterback position.
New York Jets Head Coach Rex Ryan announced that Jets' quarterback Mark Sanchez would be benched in the final two weeks for Greg McElroy, who effectively leap-frogged Tebow on the depth chart. This morning, reports circulated in the media that Tebow may demand a trade from the Jets at the end of this season. That leads us to today's retweet, from David Nelson (@iamdavidnelson):
"if i was tebow i would request a trade back to the florida gators"
