I remember when my brother used to tell me when he was in college that he has a geologically long wind-up to his throw...and I thought he was exaggerating. Then I actually saw him...and it was like "Holy Sh..." followed by stunned laughter. It's one thing to have an outright ugly motion like Rivers, but he at least gets it off fast enough and can get it out there. Tebow is like watching slow-motion with that pull-back.

Young Phillip Rivers and Dad:

I believe Julian Edleman of the Patriots was drafted as a college quarterback. Whether he has been all that successful at the NFL level is questionable. Not as high profile as Tebow.

I really think Tebow has a chance to end up with the Patriots or possibly Seattle.

HAHA Rivers.
