Tebow Using Bye to Prepare for Miami

Posted Oct 11, 2011

Newly-named starter Tim Tebow is planning on getting ready for the Dolphins during the bye week.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- When the Broncos take the field again next Sunday in Miami, there will be a new quarterback under center.
 
Number 15 -- Tim Tebow.
 
The second-year signal caller was named starter Tuesday for the game against the Dolphins by Head Coach John Fox, and Tebow will now spend the next week-and-a-half preparing for Miami.
 
He said his expectation for himself until that game comes around is to improve daily.
 
"Every single day get better, understand the game plan, understand what we are trying to do against the defense, and go out here and practice and execute it and translate that over to the game," Tebow said. "I just know that every day I will come out here and practice as hard as I can and try to go to Miami and compete, do my best, and take it one day at a time, one game at a time."
 
Tebow has the benefit of the bye this week to spend extra time studying film on himself, the offense and the Dolphins' defense.
 
He said he's going to watch film and throw on his own to stay fresh during the Thursday-to-Sunday break the team is required to have in the new collective bargaining agreement. He will have all the film he needs on his iPad so that he can watch and study wherever he goes.
 
"I think it's, one, ingraining yourself in a lot of film," Tebow said. "It's not just in the 'what if' -- what if I'm in there for this, we get this look -- you have to plan for it because it's going to happen. Just really try to visualize it and be ready for practices so we can have sharp, crisp practices all next week and really improve."
 
While film study is done off the field, on the field during practices Tebow said one of his goals is to understand what the Dolphins defense is going to do and execute it against the scout team.
 
But he also will use the next 12 days to build on-field chemistry with his teammates.
 
"I believe it is a work-in-progress and the bye week right now is a great opportunity for us to get that correlation with him and get on the same page," tight end Daniel Fells said.
 
Wide receiver Eric Decker said he will help Tebow outside of practice if necessary to get the team as ready as possible for next Sunday's game.
 
After playing the entire second half against San Diego last week, Tebow has some momentum to build off of. He led a fourth-quarter comeback that fell just short but said there's still plenty of room for improvement as he prepares to lead the offense next week.
 
"I felt like we did some good things," Tebow said. "I felt like there were some things that we need to work on and I need to work on and improve. We came right in and got to work on those things, and hopefully we will improve by the time Miami comes around."
 
While fans might have high expectations for the new quarterback, Tebow remains focused on meeting his own lofty goals.
 
"That's something that I never have tried to do is live up to everyone's expectations of myself," Tebow said. "I set high expectations for myself, and I try to live up them. That's why I put pressure on myself every day. That's why I work hard. That's why I try to improve every day because I have expectations for things that I want to accomplish."
