Tim Tebow 'Has Good Mechanics,' Says Jets QB Coach

Tim Tebow has good throwing mechanics? With a 47.3 percent career completion rate in two NFL seasons? Who knew?

"I think he can be very good," New York Jets quarterbacks coach Matt Cavanaugh told Manish Mehta of 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 was also effusive in his praise of Tebow's work ethic.

"He 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."

How can any of this be good news for current starter Mark Sanchez? And how can all of this lead anywhere but to Tebow eventually becoming the Jets starting quarterback?
