It wouldn’t be the SEC Media Days without a Tim Tebow mention. On the final day of the event at the Hyatt Regency in Hoover, Alabama, LSU Tigers quarterback Zach Mettenberger gave us what we were looking for. Mettenberger was tossed a pitch right over the plate and he swung for the fences, knocking the ball out of the park.
Mettenberger’s shot wasn’t so subtle, but it was short, sweet and directly to the point.
Oh, and it received a pretty solid chuckle, as well — unless you are a Florida Gators fan.
From Chase Goodbread of NFL.com’s NFL Draft 365:
LSU QB Zach Mettenberger: “It’s not like I’m Tim Tebow and have terrible mechanics.”

To be fair to Mettenberger, the quote looks much worse when taken out of context.
He was asked about improvements he will see under the tutelage of new offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Cam Cameron. Some may not like the shot that Mettenberger tossed Tebow’s direction, but it’s hard to get mad when someone is just speaking the truth.
