Tony Dungy Questions Sustainability Of Tim Tebow's Offense

Winning four out of five games the way the Denver Broncos have is certainly something that has stretched the bounds of credulity for many. "How can Tim Tebow keep doing this?" many are asking. It's a legitimate question. A team can't keep winning by coming back in the final five or so minutes of the game. It just doesn't seem sustainable.

Former NFL coach Tony Dungy was on the Dan Patrick Show (via Pro Football Talk) to discuss Tebow:

"I don’t know how much longer it can go," Dungy said. "I don’t think it can go very long. They’re going to have to get some more passing game, some way."

Dungy believes Tebow needs to start completing third-down passes. He has a point. The Broncos did at one point run Spencer Larsen up the gut on third down. Now, sure, Tebow could pass there, but it might also be a good idea to have him run the ball on that play.

Dungy and others still want to make Tebow into something that he isn't. The Broncos need to go with this Tebow offense until it is obvious that it won't work. We haven't reached that point yet, but it could just be around the corner.
