Years ago many runningbacks (they were halfbacks then) in the NFL had been single wing tailbacks in college. A position similar to what Tebow played at U of F. Guys like Kyle Rote and Frank Gifford entered the pros being able to run and pass. Gifford perfected the halfback option pass which was an important part of Lombardi’s power sweep, made famous by Hornung and the Pack. Your scenario of Tebow at the goal line reminds me of those times. I don’t know if Tebow has the vision of a Gifford, looking for holes to run or receivers to pass to, but an imaginative coach could take a chance on developing Tebow into the next Hornung or Gifford.
Yeah, but Gifford got married to Kathy Lee. That shows what taking all those hits do to a man.
