Shannon Sharpe: Tebow’s past hurts Tebow’s future

Shannon Sharpe on with Vic and Gary

He told me his whole life, and I don’t want to give too much away for the piece, that he wanted to be a quarterback since he was six years old, and everybody told him he should be a tight end or linebacker…and he wanted to play quarterback.  But the one thing he thought they were doing to help him harmed him the most, and that was, they put him in an offense that allowed him to do what he did best…run the football.  He never developed the skill set to throw the football efficiently, accurately, and consistently.  While you think that’s helping him [running], it’s actually hurting him long term…when you get into the heat of the battle, when the defensive ends are coming, when that pressure’s coming up the middle, you’re gonna always resort back to what you know…

I'm not sure what was funnier during this interview, Sharpe's gift of gab, or Vic and Gary fawning all over Sharpe near the end.  One of them said to Sharpe, "Wow, you just educated me."

Sorry, Vic and Gary, but that was a bit too orgasmic for live radio.

I’m glad we had this talk.  Now, vaya con Dios, Brah.

Agree, disagree, just like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter so I can quit my day job.
