Tim Tebow is ready to be a star for the Philadelphia Eagles says Tom House

Tim Tebow has exploded back in to the public consciousness after being handed a work out with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Chip Kelly has handed Tebow his first chance ever since he was let go by the New England Patriots back in 2013 and the former college star and Heisman winner is determined to make this one count and land himself on the Eagles 53-man roster.

Whilst many are still doubting on whether or not Tebow can be a success in the NFL, one man is certain that Tebow can be a dependable starter in the league, his QB coach Tom House.

House spoke to Albert Breer of NFL Media on Monday and told him that Tebow is better now than he was coming into the league and should be given a chance to show that with a team.

"What amazes me is this young man, with no job prospects, has prepared just as hard as he would if he were the No. 1 quarterback for an NFL team," House said, according to Breer.

"He's busted his butt. He spins the ball better than he did and he's much more accurate than he was. I think he's ready. "He's a much more efficient passer than when he came to us. Is he Brady or Brees? There aren't many of those. But he's better."

House is an interesting figure to say the least. A former Major League relief pitcher for eight seasons back in the '70's, House became a pitching coach and then branched out into football, with multiple Super Bowl winning quarterback Tom Brady and Drew Brees among the 67-year old's supposed clientele.

But this is more than likely Tebow's last chance to really cement himself a spot in the National Football League. After his excellent start to life with the Denver Broncos, turning them from a struggling 1-4 to making it to the playoffs and getting a win. 

Since then it's been all downhill for the former Florida Gator, after being traded to the New York Jets and becoming nothing more than a holder and special teamer. Tebow needs to make it stick now with the Eagles, and reports say that he could join Philly full time if they manage to trade Matt Barkley.
