I’ve got to be honest, the first time I wrote about the “Tebometer” I thought it was a funny little gimmick.  But I never really considered the possibility that it could last.  There were two potential scenarios: either he would stink and end up back on the bench, or be mediocre enough to get his completion rate above 50%.  Yet somehow neither of those is the case.  He can’t throw the ball in the ocean, but his team is winning games.  So for now, his quest continues.

Tim Tebow’s stats from yesterday vs. the Chiefs: 2-8, for 69 yards.  All 29 other starting QB’s, and 2 backups, put up better passing numbers than he did.  For his career he’s now 88-187, which puts his completion rate at 47.1%, down from 48% last week.

And how about this tidbit: it’s been 19 years since an NFL team won a game with fewer than 10 pass attempts and only 2 completions.  And that was the infamous “Snow Plow Game”  in 1982 when the Pats beat the Dolphins 3-0.  Steve Grogan went 2-5 in a blizzard on that December day in Foxboro.  Yesterday in Kansas City it was 57 degrees and slightly overcast.
