Tebow has a Believer

It was too good of a headline to pass up. And it has one of our favorite quotes about Tebow and that's "concrete cyanide." We have no idea what that means, but who cares, it just sounds awesome.

Tebow has a believer

While many people doubt whether Tim Tebow can play in the NFL, Super Bowl-winning former coach Jon Gruden is a believer.

The Florida quarterback, who won the 2007 Heisman Trophy, will play his final college game on New Year's Day in the Sugar Bowl.

"Tim Tebow is the 'wildcat' who can throw,'' said Gruden. "This guy is 250 pounds of concrete cyanide, man. And he can throw. He throws well enough at any level to play quarterback. He can play quarterback in the NFL.

"When he was a high school senior, I have tape of the state championship game. He has an 80-yard touchdown run that put his team in the lead. When it flipped around, what position do you think Tebow was playing? He was playing nose guard and he disrupted about 10 plays.

"This guy is totally different. He's got Rich Gannon, Drew Brees, that kind of makeup as a team guy."

Of course, Gruden is in the announcing booth now, so he can be a master of hype.

Dungy and Gruden, or Mel Kiper? Forget who you believe, who would you even be willing to sit through a conversation with?
