The worst thing that can happen for Tebow this year is if he plays QB and his passes are a little more accurate. The only reason his interception rate wasn't outrageous is because the passes were so bad that there weren't any defenders in the area either.

intelligent comment below: Wow, that's pretty harsh on a rookie qb in his first big game situation. If everyone was a failure because of a bad game then nobody would be in the HOF.


Not only was he not a rookie and not in his first big game situation, but the label of being "clutch" is supposed to suggest that you play well in exactly those sorts of situations. Make all the excuses you want for him, but those sorts of stats illustrate exactly why the label doesn't stick.

Sure, he was in a couple games where his team made comeback wins, mostly on the strength of the Bronco's D keeping them in games. People think he is clutch because he managed to play up to the level that you expect of any NFL QB in some tight 4th quarters; it only looks great by comparison because he is so bad in the other 3 quarters.

intelligent comment below: Ow! That was my feelings!: Geez, dude. Tebow was 6-22 for 60 yds, 2 turnovers(20.6 QB rating) in the season ending, *must-win* loss to the Chiefs. Yeah, the Broncos still backed into the playoffs, but he was farking terrible in a must-win home game against a division rival with a playoff spot on the line. The myth that Tebow is clutch is just that, a myth.

You think that was harsh? Heh, I guess I forgot that any criticism of the Tebow is an outrage.

Captain Steroid: I like Tebow. He ALWAYS stinks at Preseason games and practices, but steps up once the Regular Season starts. I think it's because the pressure to succeed is greater where there's an actual game and/or Playoff spots at stake, as opposed to Exhibition games and practice, which is more about getting warmed up and prepped for the actual season than victory or defeat.

If the Jets want to get more out of Tebow in practice, they've got to convince him that there is actually something worth fighting for during the Preseason. For instance, threaten to kick him off the team if he doesn't beat out Mark Sanchez for Starting QB before Week 1. Have his parents tell him they'll get a divorce if he loses a Preseason game.

Tebow's at his best when his back is to the wall and defeat is all but a reality. If you could get that pressure on him now, it will do wonders for him.

That's because he was throwing them to Jesus. Who is everywhere.

I'm anticipating a Jets implosion like you've never seen before. Wait until Sanchez loses two games in a row. The NY media will start crying that the team could not get Peyton as QB.

WTF Indeed: Tim Tebow will be a great addition to the New York Jets as a punt team, fullback, running back, TE, and Wildcat QB. But because ESPN has a ratings hardon the size of Bristol for him, all you will hear from them is "Tebow needs to start.". Because when Tebow starts they get higher ratings.


That's been the consensus all along. Tebow is a good football player. He's not a very good quarterback. He can be a boon to an offense for 20 snaps a game as a multi-dimensional threat, but his 45% passing doesn't cut it as a starting QB.

Sanchize > Tebow

Quasar: It's working out perfectly for the Jets. Sanchez knows he has a popular backup, and thus has to step it up. The Jets have a versatile player who can be used in many packages and schemes and brings some crowd support.

I almost hate how classy Tebow sounds in that article. I'm willing to bet it was genuine, too.


Tebow is classy, his cheerleaders in the media are not.
