Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow is currently in California working on his throwing mechanics with new UCLA offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone.

“He just came out here to throw and work on a few things and see if we can just become a little more efficient in what he’s doing,” Noel Mazzone said. “Throwing motion, footwork, everything I work on with all my quarterbacks.”

Mazzone said that the sessions will last through the weekend and potentially even longer.

Tebow was determined to correct his throwing motion before he was drafted in 2010, but it seems like he was never able to remain disciplined enough to keep it going. Over his first two seasons in the league, he still drops his arm down to his waist before he throws the ball, which elongates his motion and gives opposing defenders time to break on the ball once it’s thrown.

“It’s kind of like a golfer who hit that bad drive,” Mazzone said.”Every other guy in the foursome can tell you what you did wrong and all three opinions are different. We’re just going out and kind of going back to the basics and working on some fundamentals to try and become a little more efficient.”

If Tebow isn’t able to finally correct his throwing motion, I don’t think he’ll be able to last in the NFL as a quarterback. Sooner or later teams will completely figure him out and be able to shut him down. We saw teams clamp down on Tebow towards the end of this past season and it will get worse if he can’t shorten his motion.
