Posted July 20, 2012 on AP on Fox
New York Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow has been working on his throwing mechanics with former major league pitcher Tom House, reported Friday.

House, a volunteer pitching coach for the Trojans, has worked with several NFL quarterbacks over the years, including Tom Brady, Drew Brees and Alex Smith. House tells he thinks Tebow is ''getting better, but the proof is in the pudding. Being out here at USC is different than being with the New York Jets.'' Tebow was traded from Denver to New York in March and is expected to back up Mark Sanchez but will have a major role in the offense, likely in wildcat-style packages.

Tim Tebow will Start for the New York Jets During the 2012 Season

Tim Tebow will start for the New York Jets during the 2012 season. That is a very strong statement but, there are some specific reasons why I think it is going to happen.
