Throws like a guy who grew up playing soccer.

FTFA: The Prince managed to rope in Britain's most senior military officer in the US, Major General Buster Howse

Ah yes, the counterpart for our most senior military official in England: LTGen Buster Rhymes.

"...Already has a more accurate arm than Tebow"

To be fair, so does your average sixth-grade girl.

I'm surprised he didn't say this is not a football.

The article made it seem as though he was amazed by the cheerleaders as if be had never seen such a thing. Do they not have cheerleaders in England?

i love the Brittish name for America Football.  gridiron just sounds tougher and more intimidating than football.  it also sounds like a cooking utensil but meh.

Not in football no. The cheerleaders are generally drunken men singing from the terraces and using the word coont as a comma.

I'm not sure if cheerleaders or much of the pageantry and spectacle surrounding American sporting events is evident in any British equivalent. Not making a particular comment either way, just saying on this side of the pond we tend to do things with much more bluster and SHINY.

I dunno.  Getting headbutted by a chav is pretty blustery.

and it will certainly leave a shiner.

I figured anything from a chav doesn't involve shards of glass and/or various cutlery should be interpreted as a term of endearment.

He doesn't have a bunch of bad habits built into his throwing motion, and reenforced by the fact that his college passing numbers look good because "throw the deep ball to Percy Harvin" is a tough thing for an NCAA CB to defend.

Harry's coachable, is what I'm saying.

Always see that and wonder if those that keeping ranting about Tebow having won more games than Peyton would've wanted to know what season two would've looked like (hint: think "2-14").

js34603: NFL jobs:


LoL!

Seriously though, Tebow is starting to remind me a little of Flutie. Both unconventional, charismatic leaders who could get the job done, all hustle, but were never really given a chance. Elway just couldn't fathom a non-traditional passer, though Tebow won that playoff game with a pass, and may have been a little envious of the Denver fan support. He has no such fear of Manning - he's going to the HoF a Colt, not a Bronco.

It's always fun when people make fun of someone for their "sky wizard fantasies" then resort to imaginary circumstances where the other person has failed to prove their lack of ability.

Jets wouldn't care if he wore a swastika on his jersey. Just win baby!

When you can't even unseat Mark Sanchez, I think their lack of ability is pretty much proven.

Never given a chance?  He has been in the league three years. Do you think he held a clipboard at practice with the Jets?  Yes. Tim Tebow was the QB on a team that won one playoff game.  That puts him in the illustrious company of Shaun King and Bubby Brister.

That is one of the dumbest things I've ever read on this site. You're telling me that Elway is purposely sabataging the Bronco's quarterback legacy so he would be the only Bronco QB in the HOF? Never mind the fact that he's the GM of the damn franchise, he wants to be the only QB remembered in Denver? You think Marino likes that title in Miami? Or Aikman in Dallas?

Tebow is a two trick pony and all those tricks were exposed in the SEC.

Soccer fans don't really want or need the same level of pageantry, just a few drinks at a nearby pub before the match*- enough to get the spirit going but not too many to get into the action they paid to see. Music before the game is also a distraction to quite a few, attempts from the PA to get the crowd to shout will invariably be met by excrement (of the verbal kind, thankfully) and barring Crystal Palace every attempt at cheerleaders football's taken has been moderate to laughable.

Sadly for him, one of his 'tricks' isn't being a good QB or even an accurate passer.

Back that train up a couple stops, hoss.

At least Flutie is a genuinely competent QB with an IQ somewhere between room temperature and the boiling point of water. And a pretty good arm, to boot.

Ok... my sound must be messed up. He's a British guy on a US Air Force base and almost none of the sounds made by any of the people there sounded like English, either American or British, to me.
