Fox deleted his pro-style offense and installed Tim Tebow’s Florida Gator offense. The bold, unprecedented experiment helped Denver reach the playoffs and win a wild-card game, but it was destined to fail as a long-term system due to Tebow’s subpar passing ability.

In RG3, Shanahan has a quarterback who actually can throw the ball as well as he runs it. The possibility of him doing either, on any given play, causes uncertainty and increases hesitation for defenses.
