LSU QB Zach Mettenberger: I don’t have horrible mechanics like Tim Tebow
LSU has been a national championship contender for the past several seasons, and most of the their success has been the product of a ferocious defense. The Tigers like to pound the ball on the ground and create turnovers. Quarterback Zach Mettenberger was asked to do very little in his junior season last year, but that doesn’t mean he thinks he is incapable.
Mettenberger has been working with new LSU offensive coordinator Cam Cameron this offseason to improve his passing. At SEC Media Days on Thursday, he was asked if Cameron has been helping with his mechanics. That’s when Tim Tebow came into play.
Mettenberger on tweaks Cam Cameron has made w him.. Ends w "it's not like I'm Tim Tebow and have terrible mechanics."

Uncalled for? Tebow is known for having poor mechanics, but he is also a national champion who has won at the NFL level. It’s one thing for NFL legends to take shots at Tebow, but what has Mettenberger accomplished? He ranked 73rd in the country last season in completion percentage.
Stick to taunting Alabama fans, Zach. Ragging on Tebow isn’t going to get you anywhere.
