MATT CAVANAUGH IMPRESSED WITH TEBOW’S PERFORMANCE
Thu, 17 May 2012 02:52 AM EDT

Tim Tebow continues to receive high praise from the N.Y Jets assistant coaches who are preparing him for the 2012 season, with the newest compliments coming from quarterbacks coach Matt Cavanaugh.

Cavanaugh gushed about Tebow in declarations published in a paper. While he honored Tebow, the Jets’ backup QB, Cavanaugh was quoted by the newspaper asserting starter Mark Sanchez suffered from making bad calls in 2011. Las Vegas odds

Cavanaugh said to the paper that he believes Tebow “can be very good.”

“I was pleasantly surprised when I saw him over an extended period … Not just watching him playing on film,” he told the paper. “I think he’s certainly got the arm strength. He has good mechanics. They’re improving every day.”

The Jets affirm that Tebow was bought to be the backup, but his presence, and his enormous recognition, has fueled talk about Sanchez’s job security, his fresh agreement extension notwithstanding. The Jets acquired Tebow, in part, to run a Wildcat package, but he has taken only quarterback reps in the early stages of the offseason program.

Earlier in the month, Jets offensive coordinator Tony Sparano said Tebow had made “eye-opening” progress as a passer since he coached the QB 2 years back in the Senior Bowl when he was the Miami Dolphins’ coach and Tebow was preparing for the NFL draft.

Cavanaugh praised Tebow’s work ethic and announced that he “doesn’t let a day go by when he isn’t focused on attempting to get better at something.”

His praise of Tebow comes a day after his published comments criticizing Sanchez’s decision making. Sanchez combined for 26 turnovers last season (8 lost fumbles, 18 interceptions).

“There were turnovers that were not his fault that were credited to him,” Cavanaugh informed the newspaper. “But there were sufficient that playing that position he needs to cut some of those down. Many of them came from just poor decision-making.”

He announced his advice to Sanchez did not sink in for the quarterback until the Jets’ collapse to 8-8 was complete with the team missing the playoffs. He said Sanchez could have been assured because of the team’s success in his 1st two seasons when the Jets reached back-to-back AFC title games.

“The things that we discuss cannot be a ’sometimes’ thing,” “Cavanaugh informed the newspaper.” It’s got to be a mindset that you have all of the time. It isn’t something that you just turn off and on. If you’re freewheeling on your own some the time, you may be winning, but at some specific point it should bite you in the rear end. … I think he realizes that now.”

The Jets have asserted Tebow, although listed as the backup QB, could see as many as 20 snaps a game, especially in Wildcat formations. When asked how Sanchez will handle coming off the field in these eventualities, Cavanaugh said Sanchez shouldn’t let it become an issue for him.

“I think any quarterback that plays doesn’t want to come off the field,” Cavanaugh asserted. “But that is the head coach’s call. Between Rex (Ryan) and Tony Sparano, the offense will be totally set which will be their strategy.

“If you are a really good quarterback, you understand that you want to do what’s best for the team. So I don’t see it being a problem.”
