Tebow Comfortable in Offense

Posted Oct 19, 2011

While the team will look to utilize Tim Tebow's unique skill-set on Sunday, the quarterback said the offense will not change significantly.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Although Tim Tebow will be making his first start of the season on Sunday, he isn't being thrown into an unfamiliar situation.

As Head Coach John Fox said last week, "It's not like we signed him off the street."

“I feel very comfortable with this offense," Tebow said. "I feel very comfortable with this game plan, and I feel like we’ll be able to go in there and execute. Hopefully just go compete and have fun and let the rest of it take care of itself.”

Much of the offensive staff remained intact from last season, including Offensive Coordinator Mike McCoy and new Quarterbacks Coach Adam Gase, who coached receivers last season.

In turn, much of the offensive system remained the same, and the second-year pro has been studying it all season as a backup, as well.

“It's very similar," Tebow said. "Obviously there are some differences because we feel like we’ve evolved. We feel like we’ve gotten better with our scheme and improved, so there will be some differences. Obviously every week in the game plan we put in a few things to take advantage of what they do, so there will be some new wrinkles there. I feel extremely comfortable with it, and I feel like we have a great game plan and a great offense.”

There has been some question as to whether the Broncos will tailor their offense to Tebow, whose skill-set Fox described as "a little bit different than our other quarterbacks."

McCoy said last week the team will look to utilize his talents to help the team win, but won't "change everything we're doing just because he's playing."

On Wednesday, Tebow echoed that sentiment.

“I think you play to your players' strengths, and I think our coaches do a good job, but no, it’s not a different offense or a different scheme," Tebow said. "It’s the same scheme, same plays. Maybe the ones that I practice a little bit better we will probably call a little bit more.”

As for how he has practiced this week in preparation for the Miami Dolphins, Fox said Tebow has looked good.

“Tim is the kind of guy that work ethic isn’t an issue," Fox said. "He’s going to work as hard as anybody that’s in the NFL, in my opinion. He’s worked very hard. I’m sure our opponents are going to be looking at the three games he started a year ago. I think he’s progressed quite a bit since then. He’s improved every day.”

In those three starts last season, Tebow threw for 651 yards and four touchdowns while gaining 199 yards and three scores on the ground.

McCoy said the team will take the things he did well in 2010 into account as he prepares for his first start of 2011.

“There are certain things that we’ve worked on, if he was playing in the game, some ideas we have with him, some things he’s done in the past here with us that we know he can already do," McCoy said. "We’ll just take it one day at a time and just try to put a good plan together and let him have success."

The Broncos, and Tebow, hope that success can get started as early as Sunday.

"He’s obviously very excited about the opportunity," Fox said. "I think he’s expecting big things -- and so are we.”
