It sure seems new Jets QB Tim Tebow is already winning over his coaches … and not because he’s a Wildcat triggerman, a punt team protector or an H-back.
“I think he can be very good,” Jets quarterbacks coach Matt Cavanaugh tells the (New York) Daily News. “I was pleasantly surprised when I saw him over an extended period of time … not just watching him play on film. I think he’s certainly got the arm strength. He has good mechanics. They’re getting better every day.”
Cavanaugh has been working with Tebow on his fundamentals from the pocket. New offensive coordinator Tony Sparano has already deemed his progress “eye-opening.”
“(Tebow) doesn’t let a day go by when he’s not focused on trying to get better at something,” Cavanaugh said. “When you’re in that role as a backup, you take every rep, every drill, every offseason practice or meeting to get better.
“The playing time? Nobody knows how much it’s going to be. So I don’t think we worry about that.”
