NFL  > General NFL  > Tebow v. Brady
January 12, 2012, 11:26 AM
Everyone who will watch the game need to compare Brady's throwing motion to Tebow's. Both are similar! So everyone who says that Tebows delivery is terrible then they are saying the same about Brady. In addition, both have a common link and probably the reason both have a similar throwing motion.

Brady was a 6th round pick. He's done ok for himself. What's the common link?

haven't heard comparisons between these QB's throwing motions/mechanics ever. also, haven't heard talk about brady's throwing motion being terrible.... not too sure this is accurate.

Sorry, TxHeat! Its McDaniels. Don't know if he learned the mechanics from Brady and passed them on to Tebow or helped Brady refine his mechanics and passed them to Tebow.

Never heard Brady's mechanics being terrible, but if Tebow's is criticized for his and its comparable to Brady's than there is a bias. Dallasfan77, I have the feeling that it will be compared before the game this Saturday as part of the pre-game hype.

McDaniels had nothing to do with Brady being what he is. He has a personal coach out in California that he has worked with for years on his mechanics.

TxHeat, you're absolutely right! I had forgotten about him and I heard Brady's personal coach is ill as well. So McDaniels got it from Brady and passed it on to Tebow. Here is a side by side link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2kLV7xcqIHQ

Tom Martinez has a serious kidney disease and needs a transplant. last article I saw in December indicated if not very soon his time will run out.

Brady's throwing motion doesn't look anything like Tebows IMO. I guess I'll have to watch more closely this weekend.

There are similarities in their throwing motion.

Got me. Plus Tebow is lefthanded and Brady is righthanded.

Loveithateit, Phil Simms did an individual comparison and a side by side one and he did a great job of explaining their similiarities. Simms went further by showing Tebow's throwing motion as a right handed thrower, unfortunately its only a 16 second clip.

Really. I'll have to see if I can find that. Brady has such a quick release compared to Tebow so I'm surprised by that for sure.

I just sawn abunch of old clips of elway last night.... he was a beast, and he ran too. I would say Tebow was more like elway really.

January 12, 2012  01:26 PM ET

Tebow will develope a quicker release as he gets more sacks... he is still young and naive.
