Howie Long evaluates QBs Tebow, Gabbert and Newton
FOX NFL analyst Howie Long joined the show to talk about the big stories around the league.
Long commented on Tim Tebow’s recent success. Long said that Tebow does have John Elway’s will to win. But Tebow has to drive Elway a bit nuts. Long said Elway has a padded section in his box where he can bang his head.
Long talked about Blaine Gabbert’s issues in Jacksonville. Long said if you keep hitting someone with a hammer, they’re going to flinch. And Long agreed with Dan that it’s not fair to compare Gabbert to Cam Newton.
Long said that Newton “defies logic.” Long is very impressed by Newton’s maturity. “Today’s world is in your face, 24 hours and you have to be patient as the face of the franchise. And I think he’s done that.”
Long talked about his college days a bit. The Heisman wasn’t a concern for him. Villanova players weren’t typically in the running. Long confirmed he did have a mullet situation.
