Most of all, they don't have an offensive plan that suits his style. Run a bootleg, do a shotgun screen, do something that's not a "drop back, sit in the pocket for way too long and get sacked" play.
I think this is the key with the Tebow bit...
If you have watched all his games in their entirety(and I have, I live in Colorado so CBS forces me to), when Tebow is in the shotgun-spread, he throws the ball well.
He gets the ball out of his hands, and to receivers on time, and relatively accurately(~65% like the rest of the league in the Shotgun).
The fact that the Broncos started that game in the shotgun-spread, and Tebow drove the field(and got robbed out of a touchdown), shows he is capable
of playing well in the NFL.*
The Broncos never went back into the shotgun-spread until 6 minutes left in the game, and there's a problem with that...
It seems clear to me that John Fox wants
Tebow to fail, and is actively sabotaging the games. By forcing Tebow to throw out of the I-formation, after having run on first and second down for a gain of (maybe) 2 yards... Seems to me as though Fox cares less about winning games, at present, and more about showing people that Tebow "can't play."
I will admit, though, that Tebow is
incapable of playing QB in the standard set-up... Just like Micheal Vick. The difference between the two players, at present, is that Vick is with a coach/team that plays to his strengths and isn't actively sabotaging him...
