I know this blog is going to cause many arguments for both sides, but somebody has to tell the truth. It might as well be some one with the most knowledge and some one who knows his football. That person will have to be me. It can’t be ESPN, their opinions suck and are so far bias it drives true writers and talk show hosts crazy. We like the facts and stats, but their opinions are so far into left field, that 9 out of 10 times they are even in the wrong ballpark. This blog isn’t about how sorry ESPN is, but how great of a quarterback Tim Tebow is.
Now, before I get into this blog to much further I am going to say, statistically and mechanically Tim Tebow sucks. We all know he does not have the normal quarterback throwing mechanics down. We get this, we also get the fact he is not an accurate quarterback. These things are obvious and we understand this. As a matter of fact, we will run through the stats and compare him to others:
Completion % Yards TD/INT Passer Rating
The Best QB 72.9% 3,326 28/3 130.7
The Worst QB 47.9% 858 6/11 47.9
Tim Tebow 44.8% 709 7/1 78.4
I get it that Tebow is statistically challenged. Even though his passer rating is 22nd in the league and his TD to INT ratio is second in the league, the rest of the numbers just simply suck. But does that determined a bad, good, great, pro-bowl, or elite quarterback. Just numbers? Just an individuals personal stats? I thought that football was a team sports? So why are these so called experts miss labeling Tim Tebow?
That touchdown by Tim Tebow is just one example to why Tim Tebow is a great quarterback. To me and most people that actually have the concept of football and what a great quarterback is, know what I know. The knowledge that I am about to drop on you. The great quarterback is one who leads his team. The great quarterback is THE leader. The great quarterback has the respect of his team. The great quarterback the one the team rallies behind and will follow into battle. The great quarterback is the one the team will put their body on the line for. I could go on about what a true great quarterback is, but it will only prove my point further and further. Now there is different level of quarterbacks. That level is based on how they hold themselves, but more importantly how their team, coaches, and owners view him.
Tim Tebow has proven to be a GREAT quarterback. He has his teams 100% support. He leads his team to victory. He has everyones respect. The coaches have changed the whole playbook for this quarterback. The defense has been playing better now then they have all year. He is 4-1 as a starter. The one loss, came against a team that was just better suited for this game. The Lions strengths were all the Broncos weaknesses. It wasn’t Tebows fault and now that the sorry ass coach of Denver, John Fox, has jumped onto the Tebow wagon things are smoother. He never quits, with 1 INT, he puts his team is great positions to win games. This is not to mention all his rushing yards and rushing touchdowns.
I am still confused on how people don’t label him as a great quarterback. I understand on paper it isn’t pretty, but do you know what? They play on a field, not on paper. I wrote a blog back after the first game. The Miami game that Tebow lead his team from a 15-0 deficiet with like 5 minutes left in the game to a victory. The article was called Tim Tebow vs Tony Romo , it discussed how I would prefer to have this great leader who is clutch, instead of Tony Romo who buckles under pressure. Tony Romo is statistically could, but is not a great leader.
Well, I have made me point. I have also educated those who are reading this blog. I leave you with only one more thing: TEBOW, TEBOW, TEBOW
