I would agree, if the spread offense wasn't a "college gameplan."
The Triple Option isn't used in the NFL not
because it doesn't work, but because it requires a QB who is willing to get hit all the time(because he's a running back, essentially), and wide receivers who care more about winning than their receptions/yardage(not to mention Running Backs who find their carries cut because the QB is taking them).
Getting such personnel is rare, and thus the triple option isn't used. It's not
because a "college system" doesn't work.
Also don't forget, both of Tebow's wins this season came against bad teams. I'll be more willing to entertain the notion that Tebow is a good quarterback when they win against a team that has a winning record.
Tebow has 3 wins. One against Oakland(who is 5-4, and thus has a winning record...), one against KC(who is 4-5) and one against Miami(2-7)...
And, it should be noted, with the "QB passer rating" that the stats people love to go by, Tebow had a 102.6 rating, with his 2-8, 69 yard, 1 TD performance. Honestly, the fact that it hasn't hit the "experts" that the only "stat" that matters is the win-loss number is baffling to me... Don't believe me? Ask Cam Newton whether he'd keep his 300 yard/game performances or trade them for crappy numbers but wins for Carolina(or any other "good QB" who's team has a poor record right now)...
