I'd say this. Although he's a charismatic leader and possesses many skills which could be effectively used in the right situation, he's a mediocre at best passer and this drawback makes most coaches hesitant to bring in Tebow and the scrutiny that would follow.
Of course if everyone could just agree to that, ESPN would lose half of its programming.
