NFL Network analyst Kurt Warner, the only man ever to start an NFL game over Eli Manning, has spoken extensively this week about Manning and Tom Brady.
But I liked this bluntly honest assessment of Tim Tebow Wednesday:
"I think he’s a great kid. I love the way he represents himself. I love his attitude toward life and toward football and I think all those things bode very, very well for him. But I’m also a realist and a quarterback and believe that if he plans on going to go where he wants to go as a quarterback he’s going to have to develop a better presence in the pocket. He’s going to have to become a better passer.
"I’m definitely not going to say he can’t do it, because if there’s one guy who I definitely feel will work and do everything he can to get better I think it’s Tim. But I don’t believe he can sustain a long career playing the way that they played this year. I think he’s going to have to develop the way he passes the football and sees things in the pocket if he wants to have a long career and have success."
