I try not to dip into the bin of easy targets too much. I really do try. But every now and then, you just have to reach in the bin, swirl your hand around for a while, grab the biggest thing you can find, and yank it the hell out of there.
Which is all my way of saying you get Tebow this week.
There were actually a couple of good Tebow photos coming out of this same stretching routine. The other choice may have been even more glorious, but for a little bit of blur and too much of a visible Mark Sanchez, but I'll give it to you as a bonus link. Never before have I noticed how much Tebow looks like an O-lineman. Not a fullback. Not a linebacker. A big ol' fat n' husky bruiser hog. And he's a hungry hog.
I went with this photo, though, because it seems all the more indicative of Tebow's actual career. Allow me to demonstrate.
Tebow: "Coach, I don't recognize this formation. Am I supposed to line up behind the ball or what?"
Ryan: "Tim, it's a stretch. Do what everyone else is doing."
Tebow: "A Stretch? That doesn't sound like our terminology... I knew I should have brought my wrist sheet. When I was with the Broncos, A meant run and B meant pass. So... this is probably a run. But...."
Tebow: "Hey, coach! What kind of play is stretch?"
Ryan: "It's the kind of play where you do what everyone else is doing and stretch."
Tebow: "Stretch what?"
Ryan: "Your muscles."
Tebow: "Stretch them like I stretch the field when I throw the ball?"
Tebow: "But I thought this was a run play?"
Ryan: "I need a hot dog."
Tebow: "HOT DOG!"
And the more I think about it, the more I'm pretty sure that's exactly what we're seeing here.
