garron: Tebow haters really have no idea how irrational and bigoted they sound. There is no sound reasoning in their arguments and no facts to back up their accusations of his incompetence.Here are the completion percentages and win/loss records for the first year of several "top" quarterbacks compared to Tebow:Player Completion W/L RecordJohn Elway 47.5% 4-6Payton Manning 56.7% 3-13Troy Aikman 52.9% 0-11Terry Bradshaw 38.1% 3-5Joe Namath 48.2% 3-5-1Tim Tebow 46.5% 7-4Tebow earned the right and has demonstrated the ability to excel at the NFL level as much as any of these guys did in their first year. The attacks on this kid are irrational and based simply on hatred and bigotry.
Captain Steroid: Dinobot: That said, it would be loltastic if somehow Brady gets injured in the playoffs and Tim Tebow, as a backup, defeats the Denver Ponies.[i1182.photobucket.com image 500x281]
CavalierEternal: If Tom Brady is God, then what does that make Eli Manning?
Wadded Beef: So you're using Tebow's second year stats and comparing them to "top" (sic) quarterbacks' rookie years?Seems legit.
eudemonist: Add into that his usefulness on the practice squad preparing the starters for read-options, and it starts to look like a pretty smart move
poughdrew: Adolf Oliver Nipples: ... Random Steelers' fan word salad...The two possible outcomes you are looking for:1) Tebow barely plays or doesn't play at all, and they trade him to some team for a 6th round pick, at which point the Pats continue to win the AFC East year after year.2) Tebow is put in a useful role and the Pats continue to win the AFC East year after year.
What_Would_Jimi_Do: tebow will slot in as TE in place of gronk. also possibly FB. which no teams tried him at
chewielouie: No. I doubt Belichick is bringing him in to ride the bench. I'd wager he wants to see if he can effectively use Tebow, when the Jets couldn't. This could be fun to watch.
Tumunga: AdamK: ariseatex: Klippoklondike: Anyway, to the point. Putting Tebow in Boston was the only way for him to get MORE press coverage. It's just not gonna stop. It's like the terminator of news/not news. No matter what you do, it will keep coming.I'm afraid that's what he and his agent were thinking. Of course the press is a fickle mistress.Best case scenario for him, of course, is that spending time with Brady will teach him how to be a better QB, both on the field and on the sideline. No matter what I think of the Patriots, I can't deny Brady's skill as a team leader. Hopefully Tebow learns leading means more than "just do what I say and let me run the ball!"sure, the patriots as a franchise have never been afraid of players - either when using them or letting them go, either you play as a team member or go homesometimes that gets them in trouble (like letting go of wes welker) but other times they did it perfectly (like starting Brady or letting go of Moss)i'm not sure how much the media control helps keep players focused, it's probably just a cog in the system, but if Ochocinco could be reigned in then so could TebowOk, I get the hate on Fark, but wtf did Tebow do that was so bad he needs to be reigned in?
jayhawk88: Do you get the feeling the only reason Hoodie did this, is so he can get Tebow a TD when the Pats play the Jets, and Rex will have to answer questions from the NY media about it for a week?
traxan: My old man is an ex-football player, not pro or anything, but he thinks Tebow would be better off as a fullback than QB. What do some of you think?
Bunny Deville: mjohnson71: I still can't figure out why the Jacksonville didn't take a run at Tebow. Just sign him and they could fill every single last seat in EverBank Field. We're talking World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party type attendance for every Jaguars game."Not even if he is released"
Dougie AXP: Triumph: How soon 'til I can buy a jersey for my Pats fan friend?Probably plastered all over NFLShop.com right now.
