Tim Tebow fancies himself a quarterback, and he isn’t afraid to stand up for himself either. Earlier this week, radio show host and former New York Jets’ QB Boomer Esiason continued his campaign to have Tebow excommunicated from the franchise. Today, Tebow was a guest with Boomer and his co-host, Craig Carton, and did not [...]

  • I agree with you. Old Elway didn't want his records broken. Both of them are Ca's.
  • I agree too.
  • If you think that Elway was AT ALL concerned that Tim Tebow was going to break ANY of his records then you are TRULY delusional! That statement is just ridiculous.......
  • Yes he is popular i would not say the most popular especially with anyone who actually follows football. BUT he is not popular because he is a good player he is popular cause he shows off that he is christian. Which is just silly since prob more then half the players out there are, they just don't feel the need to show it off every chance they get.
  • Why is it so hard for these old,bitter,wornout QB's (Elway, farve and Esiason) to accept the fact they are done. Stop hating on someone that loves the game and plays like it.
  • As long as we're asking questions; Why is it so hard for you Tebow cult members to accept that he is just not QB material!!!!
  • BTW, why would ANY of these "old, bitter, wornout" QB's as you label them need to hate on Tim Tebow? These guys are all rich beyond belief AND successful so why would they even care?? They have an opinion about Tebow's abilities, (or lack thereof) at the QB position, and they have the rights to express them. Their opinions may be different from yours, but that doesn't make YOUR opinion the most valid!!!!
  • I have a feeling Tebow couldn't really care less what Elway or Esiason say about him...if anyone has listened to him in the past and even in these answers...he has already lived the dream and is a thankful person that he got the chance...that he might help the Jets win something this year or next would be icing on the cake he has already eaten...
  • Thanks bro. He is real. Just the way that u r.
  • if tebow wins a superbowl wait i said that wrong gets a ring, it won't be because of his fine skills (extreme sarcasm) at the QB position. it will be on the shoulders of another QB not tebow, he's below mediocre and really doesn't have the skill set for that position. it's surprising that the NFL is really trying hard to make him a QB. don't get me wrong he can play in the league but not at QB.
  • Don't know ur job, however u need to be an anlylass.
  • The next to hiring Rex Ryan, trading for Tebow is the worst move the Jets ever made. Cutting him now is the Jets only hope for a descent season. On an unrelated matter does he set off any one else's gaydar?
  • You're an idiot
  • Sounds to me like you are jealous. Tebow has proven himself. Hw is good and will get even better over time. I am glad he don't listen to losers like you haters. Look where he is and look where you are! Enough said
  • Hey I'll admit it i'm no NFL QB. But I'm hardly jealous of him, shoot if i was gonna waste my time being jealous of a NFL QB i'd make it a good one like Manning, Brady, or Elway. I'm sorry that my opinion of him, that he will never be a great QB, hurts your feelings. He might very well one day be a decent QB, but he is only mediocre at best so far. Shoot there are a few first round draft picks that look better then him at the minute and regulars season hasn't even started.
  • I'm a Patriots fan and don't care one bit about an arguement between a has-been and a wannabe best QB. Continue the controversy...we have Brady!
  • Please anyone point out any of the great QB's of all time and name one that the critics said in the first 2-3 seasons he's bound for greatness. Come one people champions are born they're made from determination and hard work. I don't care if it's Tebow or any other QB it takes time and experience to be a good QB in the NFL.
  • If you compare Tebow's first full year stats to Aaron Rodgers' and Drew Brees' - Tebow has overall better stats and Tebow really didn't have a full season. He started 11 games, not as many passing yards but no where near the passing attempts. TD% was higher than Drew Brees; INT% lower than both Brees and Rodgers; rushing? no comparison - Tebow had twice the yards that Rodgers and Brees had combined; Tebow 6 rushing TD's, Brees and Rodgers combined - 5; winning% higher than both; Tebow had 5 4th qtr. comebacks - Brees 2; Rodgers 0. Tebow made playoffs and won 1 playoff game. Neither Rodgers nor Brees made the playoffs their first year. Now I'm not saying that Tebow will ever be as good as those two but he has potential. He may be very unorthodox as a quarterback but he finds ways to win. As for you Jets fans, just wait until Sanchez gets hurt and Tebow starts winning for you. You'll all be singing a different tune. NY - home of the fair weather fans.
  • yes he can run as a meter of fact i think he could be a great running back. And i'f say the reason he has way less attempts and completions even int is cause he cant throw well at all so he don't try. If he relies on running to carry him he wont make it long enough to become great cause qb's like that get the crap kicked out of em and never make it long
  • You're right, he doesn't have great accuracy but most of his rushing attempts were because his receivers couldn't get open and he had to scramble. He has a strong arm, if he could work on his accuracy he could be a force with his running ability too. If I had a team with mediocre receivers I would want a quarterback that can scramble as well as Tebow.
  • Here is my assessmento of Tebow so far:
    1) he is tall enough to see over the ovensive and defensive line which is beneficial for a quarterback
    2)He is durable and can take a hit
    3) If the defense plays light on the line of scrimmage, he can run to pick up yards
    4) If the defense plays heavy on the line of scrimmage, he can throw over it
    5) he has enough arm strength to throw as far down field as necessary
    6) If he fades to the left he has enough arm strength to throw across the field to the right
    7) If he fades to the right he has enough arm strength to throw across the field to the left
    8) His only issue is his accuracy (if you turned a basketball rim perpendicular to the ground his accuracy is currently the diameter of two rims, and he needs to be able to throw within the diameter of one rim.

    Given all of his attributes, he has the potential to be a great quarterback in a couple of years. It is a shame he is not backing up Michael Vick, given their similar style of play and Vick's prone to injury.

    I live in NYC and Tebow is the only reason why I would watch the Jets, given other entertainment options such as the Giants, the US Tennis Open, and the Yakees.
