CFL rosters are only 41/42 players, 3 slots are reserved for QBs, and of the rest you can only have a maximum of 19 "Import" players (non-Canadian residents).  Considering the field is 10 yards longer, and you only get 3 downs instead of 4.  This is a league where you HAVE to be a good passer - why would any team waste one of its roster spots on this guy?

I still haven't figured out the hatred for Tebow. Here's the list I've come up with why people seem to hate him so:

1) Collegiate hate lasts forever (if you hate the gators, you hate Tebow no matter where he goes or what he does).
2) His outspokenness about his faith (and his anti-abortion commercial) just rubs people wrong and there ain't no hate like a liberal's hate
3) There are many people who demand that those who entertain them must use perfect form and mechanics (see ballerina's or gymnasts.) and when they see someone who succeeds (by wins) while not performing the proper form and mechanics, it exposes a flaw in their perception of what a "good" entertainer is, and therefore frustrates them. Things that frustrate usually become hated.
4) He's an easy target to hate because he doesn't fight back, and right now it's the cool thing to do.


Any others anyone else can come up with?

Here's my take on Tebow the football player:
1) He's not an accurate passer.
2) He has that intangible ability to will his team to a win.
3) His style of play requires youth to be successful.
4) He could probably help at least three or four teams in the NFL get more wins this year than they would have with their current QBs.
5) He probably would fit best at the Buffalo Bills right now.

He's seen more money than most of us will in our lifetimes based on absolutely nothing but hype, and although he claims to follow a guy who's known mostly for sacrifice, he himself refuses to do something so ghastly and heinous as to play fullback or tight end.

So, it may start there.

0) He's a tight end /h-back who can be a passing threat situationally. Plenty of players have had to change position coming into the NFL, in particular lots of black QBs with better skillsets than Tebow has shown to date. Tebow is Eric Crouch  with  a group of disciples.

As a football player I think what he gives you on offense is something like a homeless man's McNabb / Reid offense.  As a passer his decision making/release is too slow and his reads too bad to do anything in the short/mid range, though he can throw a pretty decent deep ball when he gets a receiver in one on one coverage.  His completion percentage is flat awful so despite the fact that he's a very good runner as a QB you get very few sustained 10+ play drives, it's either a home run or a 3 and out.  If Tebow is your QB, your defense is going to be on the field 35+ minutes a game.  If you have a truly excellent defense you can take the points you'll get from the few deep shots that work and win some games that way but if you've got a mediocre defense you're going to get hammered.

That said if there's too many more anti-Tebow threads I'm going to have to root for the guy out of spite.

His media attention to skill ratio is off the charts.

Why is there so much media coverage of a third string QB? And why do so many people who don't know shiat about football rush to defend his lack of skills and explain the "hate" for him?

Personally, I don't hate him. I nothing him, I feel the same way about him as I do about the other 100 or so guys who weren't good enough to make rosters this year. But for some crazy reason, there's a never ending parade of media attention for this one particular guy who isn't good enough.

This is why people hate him.  Because there are people out there that actually believe this.

Tebow doesn't have an intangible ability to will his team to a win.  Do you know who does?  Tom Brady.  And that intangible ability is actually tangible, he throws a shiat load of TD passes which adds to his teams point total which allows them to win a game.  There is no such thing as "the intangible ability to win".

Tebow's magical run consisted of 3.5 quarters of some of the worst offensive football I have ever seen, followed by one decent drive resulting in a win.  The only reason he was able to win the game is because for those games his defense played lights out and kept the inept offense, led by Tebow, in the game.

The reason he isn't starting right now is because that is not a way to be successful in the NFL.  That puts way too much pressure on your defense and you are going to lose most of the time.

It's not Tebow I hate, it's the coverage he's gotten from the media, particularly ESPN. There have been times over the last year or so where you hear nothing but Tebow coverage, especially on Mike & Mike.

"Tebow's going to play in certain situations"

1 is easy, nobody likes the Gators, especially when they win 2 championships and were en route to 3 if not for 'bama

2 literally rode on the coattails of his success at Florida and much of it had to do with the media treating him like Brett Favre, really i think religion might've added fuel to the fire but the fire started with the Favre treatment, something people despise about Favre and that's with no religion involved at all

i don't think 3,4 are true at all, there are plenty of players throughout the history of the NFL that played their own way and won whether it was Joe Kapp with his anti-unitas approach to the game or Jim McMahon's craziness on and off the field

and if anything Tebow not fighting back has garnered him infinitely more respect than he got coming out of college

expectations play a big role too, it's just a part of the sports world - i mean look at a guy like Steve Young, he could pass, he could run, he could win, etc. BUT was always following up Montana, in that sense his skills were secondary to the reputation he was expected to produce... Tebow was a heisman winner, 2 time national champion, and was expected to play above his level in the NFL should he get there... when he started looking awful in the spring of 2010 before being drafted, people piled on because a guy with those expectations should be doing everything in his power to get better

i guess it's not fair, but a lot of great players don't make it as far as he did in the NFL

Any others anyone else can come up with?

Here's my take on Tebow the football player:
1) He's not an accurate passer.
2) He has that intangible ability to will his team to a win.
3) His style of play requires youth to be successful.
4) He could probably help at least three or four teams in the NFL get more wins this year than they would have with their current QBs.
5) He probably would fit best at the Buffalo Bills right now.


his style of play has been done before by guys like Steve Young, Doug Flutie and Ben Rothlisberger, all guys who had great accuracy and more importantly consistency

youth has nothing to do with it, execution is really where it lies... Tebow's problem is that the NFL expects you to win from day one, and if you're not winning then you should be building a winning team... and if coaches don't think they can build a team around a guy who would be better off learning how to throw in his spare time then why bother? in the case of the Patriots they had a limited number of roster spots and don't have the time to train the guy during the actual season - i mean imagine if you only had a few months of the year to do a year's worth of work at the office, you think you'd have the time to train an intern? probably not

his best bet is to take to heart what he learned about being a QB with the Patriots to heart, and then take a year off and learn to play the position better with the right teachers... being the NFL with a crap team is not going to make him a better player, it's more like a death sentence at this point
 
2013-09-03 12:12:40 PM

Exactly. Tebow had better ratings than Quinn in college, too, though.

/It's not really meaningless, it's a combination of the important things, like yards/pass, completion percentage, TDs, INTs, etc. It's definitely much better than any of those stats by themselves, though there are better measurements available now

I don't mean the rating itself is meaningless, just that the scale that runs from -??? to 158.3 is free of any implicit context, and then in college you have a scale that also doesn't relate to anything but is for some reason calculated differently.

It runs from 0 to 158.3. I don't see why making things run to 100 makes them any more significant. I will admit that the 80% completion percentage being good enough for "perfect" and the 13 yards/pass being "perfect" seems pretty arbitrary. It seems like it was designed to get the top QBs with numbers in the high 90s, though, so it would basically work as though it were a grading system...but then the rules started favoring the offenses more and more and have thrown things off a bit.

/also it's become a problem as QBs begin to run more since it doesn't account for that production

It's the Jets. Only the Jets would sign Tebow, never play him, cut him and then sign a worse QB. The Jets are a joke and should in no way be held up as some sort of representative NFL franchise.

How is it possible for one team to make so many bad decisions at the QB position?

IAmRight: Jim from Saint Paul: The only reason he gets a pass from Fark is ESPN isn't on his dick and Quinn

Though really, Quinn was a precursor to Tebow.


Only in the idea the hype was huge when we could see the talent was iffy.

Nothing like Tebow has rolled through the NFL Fan's daily mental percolating. Not since ESPN really got off the ground anyway.

Jim from Saint Paul: you have pee hands: CheatCommando: Quinn's lifetime QB rating is 134. Tebow's is 75

Is that Brady's college rating?  There's no way that's his NFL rating, that'd be crazy.

/and why are they two different meaningless numbers on two different meaningless scales anyway

IAmRight: CheatCommando: Quinn's lifetime QB rating is 134. Tebow's is 75

What the hell are you reading where it tells you Quinn's lifetime QB rating is 134?

It's 64.4. Maybe you were looking at his career passing yards per game.

Those.

Brady. Quinn. Is. A. Worse. QB. Then. Tim. Tebow.

The only reason he gets a pass from Fark is ESPN isn't on his dick and Quinn has never mentioned God like Tebow has.


Well there you have it. Tebow is better than Brady Quinn. High praise indeed, he should be guaranteed a job then.

I must have, or the first web site transposed some numbers. Going straight to NFL's site confirms your numbers. Frankly, I should have looked harder, as I expected Quinn to be worse. One look at Brady's number (96.6) would have made me go back and double check.

Oh well, as my Dad always said, Freedom of Speech includes the Freedom to Make an Ass of Yourself in Public. Looks like I went for that this morning.

"Exactly. You just make one incredibly boneheaded QB decision, and stay with it no matter what!"

*snert* "Better than Brady Quinn" is kind of awesome. It reminds me of the fark-meme a la Jay Cutler being a "franchise quarterback" from a few years back.
