It’s no surprise Tim Tebow gained a reputation as a great teammate because he’s a great person.He’s friendly, respectful and always ready to accommodate media and fans.He’s a man of faith who actually appears to practice what he preaches.Tebow is the NFL’s gold standard for generosity.He brings hope to children suffering from illness and injury through his foundation. He even flies some of these kids and their families to games to enjoy the NFL experience as his personal guest. The Walter Payton Humanitarian Award should be renamed in his honor.But his is the last jersey you’d want to see hanging in the locker next to yours if you’re an average NFL quarterback. Just ask Kyle Orton, who finished 2011 with a Total QBR of 49.8, compared to Tebow’s 29.9. Yet, conventional wisdom claims Tebow had the better year because he was the signal caller when Denver strung together one of the luckiest streaks in history.He’s the last guy you’d want to pass block for because of his unpredictable po...

  • Fear is very powerful and a lot of coachs and Gm"s have it when it comes to Tebow. What they fear is his hugh following of which I am one. He will never be the best as a QB but in one half of one season in Denver he brought more excitment to the NFL in many years, and it was with out the proper preseason practice as the man. The fear is also because he has proven he can win under stress without his best game and the best of team mates around him. What he does seem to bring out in other players is an extra something needed to win, and on paper his stats say he is no good and shouldn't win. I watched all of his games in Denver and he did some real bad things but a lot more good things and instilled in the team that something extra and they won more games than the should have because of it. He also does not need to be the starter to help if one has brains enough to design plays to his strengths to help who might be the starter if he is not.I still wish for him to do well because yes he dooes all the things listed above but also can play the game well enough to win more than lose.
