Is there anything beyond "circus"? Cacophony implies mostly just sound. Hippodrome is just a venue. It almost feels like we need to invent a word for how ridiculous and out of control - yet still entertaining - this is going to get.

"Tebow" seems to be an all-purpose word.

Now, this provides Tebow a rare opportunity. He could boldly turn down the network, saying that it promotes immorality and unsavory celebrity worship which borders on idolatry and he cannot in good conscience work with them and return the money offered to him.

But then again, this is Tebow we're talking about. He's all about milking the system dry.

I do believe we need to coin a new verb that describes what the media does when it takes some promising rookie and overhypes them to the point that no one ever wants to hear their name again.
Tebow is already a verb, so we can't use that - I propose "Danica"
Overheard in the broadcast booth:
"Boy, the press is really doing it's best to "Danica" Tebow's career, eh Boomer?"
Just a thought.

This show will probably be his excuse when he "leaves" the NFL. After he's cut for being a shiatty quarterback, he'll make up some excuse about "wanting to spread the good word on cable television" and show people how a true Christian lives. This way he can save face when everyone finally realizes he can't play for shiat.

Tebow's actually in the catbird seat, at least for right now. He can just keep up his "I just want to help the team win any way I can" routine, and the media is still going to fawn over him wherever he goes. As long as he doesn't do something galactically stupid, he'll be Jeter circa 1999.

I would put Sanchize's Leaf Moment, however, by Nov 1.

Just curious, which did he choose this off-season?

1) Work on his game
2) Evangelize full time

Elway had reportedly been upset because Tim told him he didn't see the reason for a lot of excess off-season work, and planned on doing missionary work.
 
2012-05-13 11:43:08 AM
This guy should be happy to have a job at all.

While I'm not questioning the reality of his religious beliefs, they're certainly paying dividends. You take any other QB who's either not religiously obnoxious or simply not a Christian, and he's not even getting a chance at playing, unless there's a horrific injury, and even then the team is looking for other options.

I'm not going to monologue about my own opinion of the merits of his faith or the faith of others, but man...the ONLY reason Timmy has a career is Jesus.

Since Tebow moved to Hoboken I've gone celibate and dry and have accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as my savior.

Neither one of them has had a full season as a starter, so I don't get the comparision.

They've both won the same amount of playoff games as Tony Romo, without the benefit of being in the league for like 10 years.

No, no I'm not. Not about passing touchdowns.

Tebow 17 touchdowns.
JaWalrus 18 touchdowns.

It's been a while since I took a math class, but I believe 18 is greater than 17. Now Russell does have a lot more interceptions, but he also has a lot more attempts. Considering how terrible Tebow's accuracy is I'd be willing to bet he'd have a lot more ints if he threw the ball more often. But the point is, statistically speaking Tebow is on par with Ryan Leaf and JaMarcus Russell - two of the biggest draft busts in NFL history. His only saving grace is his ability to run the ball, which he does seem to be pretty good at.

Actually you are the one that started off the topic of thrown touchdowns, so that's what I was looking at, thrown touchdowns.

So whatever, Tebow has more total touchdowns because he can run the ball. He's still not good at throwing the ball, which is kind of important for a quarterback, and that's the point I was trying to make. The guy sucks at passing the ball. Let's just assume for the sake of argument that he is better than Russell or Leaf, that's not a noteworthy accomplishment.

Because you want to throw out two horrible comparisons? A guy with no work ethic who bloated up because he didn't give a fark and another dude with no work ethic with temper issues that's also a criminal.

That's what always cracks me up about Tebow detractors. They come out of the woodwork all claiming the same shiat. He'll never improve. Ask Steelers fans how bad he sucks at throwing the ball.

I think one pass to a wide-open receiver that never should have been open said more about the state of the Steelers' defense than it did about Tebow's throwing ability, but that's open to debate.

And what cracks me up about Tebow's supporters is they always take any criticism about his playing abilities as an attack on him as an individual and/or his religious beliefs. At no point in this thread, or in any other thread, have I said anything disparaging about Tebow's character. Obviously I don't know him personally, but he seems to be a genuinely nice human being, and I don't wish him any ill-will. I just don't think he has what it takes to be a successful QB in the NFL, and that is based on observation and statistics. And I was comparing his stats to the stats of Leaf and Russell, I wasn't comparing their personalities or the reasons for their individual failures. Does he have the anger and other issues that Leaf had? Absolutely not. And based on his statements he seems to have a good work ethic and a desire to get better, so that alone puts him ahead of JaWalrus in that department.

That being said, I'm willing to accept that it is possible he could improve. I don't personally think he will, but stranger things have happened. Michael Vick couldn't throw for crap either until recently, although he wasn't as bad as Tebow.

LOL why not? He's the first QB for the Broncos to win a playoff game since 2005. Sersiously, think about where you were in 2005, how long ago it was. If the dude retired tomorrow, I'd be grateful that he took the reigns of the team from the noodly armed whiteboys that have played since Brian Griese and did something. Plus, and this is just for personal enjoyment, it allowed me to talk a lot of shiat last season. Because most of the people who hate Tebow on this site were just waiting for him to fail so they could yell "see I told you so!, I was right!"

So when they ended up being wrong week after week after week it was just too funny. I mean if you scream for someone to fail you'll eventually be right. But the amount of time it took was so sweet.

See this proves you didn't watch the game, or even the highlights. There were a hell of a lot more badass passes than just the one in OT. It shows your ignorance that he threw for over 300 yards, but somehow you can only come up with one play.

Oh it's not just that. It is the can't, the won't, the never will attitude so many of the people here have. Funny part is, when people speak in absolutes like that. it's too easy to disprove them, which just makes them madder.

It's just extremely hard to keep that kind of attitude up on a site that the userbase damn near literally hates everything

Ahh yes, the 300 yard game. I did indeed watch that game, and he did have a small handful of good passes for big yards other than the last one in OT. I also remember him throwing some straight up awful passes too. And how many would you say qualifies as 'a hell of a lot', because he only completed 10 passes that game. Even if every single completion was badass (and it wasn't) that still leaves 11 more passes that obviously weren't badass since they were incomplete.

Welcome to the internet. But I'm not speaking from a position of hate. My opinion is based on observation. I don't care who the QB is, holding up a single 316 yard performance as some sort of proof that he is a good quarterback is just silly, especially when he completed less than 50 percent of his passes in that same game.

I understand the desire to defend the guy, considering how much unfounded hate he gets. But pretending like mediocre stats are somehow great is just as dishonest as those that hate him just because he's Tebow. Based on his play and his statistics this past season, he was not a good QB. Maybe he will turn it around, he's still young, but jumping down the throat of anyone that points out a fact and insulting them just makes you look like one of his crazy supporters that think everything he touches turns to gold.
 
2012-05-14 06:02:44 AM
Tebow seems like a great guy, he plays hard, and runs very well but when it comes to passing, he is farkin horrible. I can't see him ever being anything more than a role player on a team, which isn't a bad thing to be. He is hyped AND hated too much and I think people need to settle down about the whole thing.

Right, he was pretending they were great. It wasn't that you started off comparing him to two of the biggest busts in NFL history, which is patently ridiculous.

I love that you say "he has less TDs than Russell" and then say "if he threw more, he'd have more INTs"...yeah, I'm sure he wouldn't throw any more TDs, either.

300 yard games: Tebow 2 (16 starts), Russell and Leaf combined 1 (46 combined starts)

100+ passer rating games: Tebow 5, Russell/Leaf combined 4

Multiple passing TD games: Tebow 5, Russell/Leaf combined 7

Total TDs: Tebow 32, Russell/Leaf combined 33

Total INTs: Tebow 9, Russell/Leaf combined 59

Oh yeah, that clearly seems to be a valid comparison, if you're a complete moron. Every good thing they accomplished in their career, he's already achieved in 1/3 of their total games. But they do have a huge advantage over him in pretty much all of the suckage stats.

You know what? You're right, it isn't really a fair comparison. It started off as snark and I let it spiral outside the lines of reason.

But I stand by my other comments. He's not a good quarterback, not yet anyway.
