Is Tebow More Mobile Than Vick? (And Other Questions from Readers)
Tebow is built like a tight end, really, and so, not to put too fine on a point on it, defenders are much less willing to throw themselves into his path. If you look pretty closely at the final drive against the Jets, you will see a few glaring and unflattering examples of that. Also, when Tebow does get hit, he can shake them off much more easily than Vick because of his size. Another thing: Tebow is often taking off on designed runs, so the offensive line is blocking for him.
