Over the next few days, ESPN will be rolling out their Any Era Team, consisting of twenty players that Pro Football Hall of Famers think could have played in any era of the National Football League.  Ranking at number nineteen on the list is Denver Broncos second-year quarterback Tim Tebow.

“It’s funny. It was debated hotly for the past few months whether or not the option-running Tebow could actually fit in this era. Yet, according to the Hall of Famers, Tebow could play in any era in NFL history partly because of his toughness and aggressive playing style,” wrote ESPN blogger Bill Williamson.

One of the players that voted for Tebow to be recognised was former Broncos running back Floyd Little, who was enshrined into the HOF two years ago.  According to Little, Tebow is the type of player that could play any position asked of him.

“He might not be the greatest quarterback, but he could play at any position you want him to play at. He’s a guy I’d like to play with if I was still playing. He’s a winner, he’s mobile, strong, and gets the job done regardless, whether he’s blocking, throwing, running or just fooling you,” said Little.

Tebow was praised highly by Little, who recorded nearly 9,000 yards from scrimmage while scoring over 50 touchdowns in 117 career games with the Broncos from 1967-to-1975.    

“He finds a way to win and people need to recognize that. A “W” is a “W” and it doesn’t matter how you get it, if you win ugly it’s still a “W.” Mechanics don’t play the game, people do.”
