Billick wants Tebow to "slim down"

They had to reign  him in from lifting too much in  high school, and then in college, and now Coach Billick thinks Tebow should tone down the weight lifting too.

"I'm excited to see what happens with Tim Tebow in an entire offseason. He's gonna get a coach whisperer," said Billick, "to work on those mechanics.
"I think the No. 1 thing Tim Tebow has to do, I don't think he can lift the way he's lifted before. There's three people that can't lift the way Tim Tebow does: pro quarterbacks, pro tennis players and golfers."
Tebow packs 236 chiseled pounds onto his 6-3 frame.
"He has got to cut back on that rigid, thick (frame)," said Billick. "I know it keeps him alive as a running quarterback, but it does not bode well for his passing, the fluidity that he has to have. So that's, to me, job one in the offseason, he's got to change his (conditioning) mindset."

Fair? Or another "Tim Tebow can't"?
