ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Tim Tebow is not a prototypical NFL passer and may never become one. So, the Denver Broncos used an unorthodox approach with their unconventional quarterback.
The Broncos confounded the Oakland Raiders with the same system that Tebow operated so successfully at the University of Florida: the read-option run strategy.
The result was his second win in three starts despite another up-and-down passing performance.
By putting the ball in Willis McGahee's belly and then deciding whether to hand it off or keep it for his own run, Tebow looked like he was running the Gators' offense once again. And the results were similar, too.
But is this strategy sustainable? He was hit 17 times Sunday.
