Tom Martinez is a former coach who’s aided Tom Brady ever since he was a teenager and Tom has always given Martinez high praise for helping him become the quarterback we see today. Unfortunately, Brady’s success may have gone to Martinez’s head.
During an interview with 790 The Zone in Atlanta, Martinez said that he believes he has the magic touch and can fix Tim Tebow’s awkward throwing motion in two short weeks.
“I think Tim Tebow is willing to do anything that people tell him to do. He’s like Brady in the sense that he’s an internal warrior. I think when he started in the NFL, whoever they put him with, I personally kind of disagree with the mechanics he was given. He’s trying to prove the same thing Brady was trying to prove. I could give him what I call correct mechanics in two weeks.“
If Martinez molded “Tom Terrific” into a great QB, maybe he could actually do the same with Tebow. If Tebow wants to be great, he might as well give Martinez a ring and see what he’s talking about. What does he have to lose (besides that horrific throwing motion)?
On the other hand, it would be pretty tough to improve Tebow’s throwing motion since he’s been throwing the ball like that ever since he started playing football. Tebow’s got to change something about his passing game because a quarterback completing less than 50% of his passes isn’t going to cut it long-term.
