Leonard Washington: Most of the criticism of Tebow sounds like the old time scouts in Moneyball


But in reverse.  Moneyball used statistics instead of gut feelings and subjective analysis to determine if a player adds something to the team.  Tebow fans use gut feelings and subjective analysis to ignore Tebow's statistical performance.

bingethinker: He's 8-5 in the NFL, including playoff games. That's 9 or 10 wins in a 16-game season. Twenty teams did worse than that in 2013.


Trent Dilfer won a Super Bowl. Do you think he's a good QB?

In both cases, they were medicore/bad QBs that had great defenses.

Bayless and Cowherd broke the glass ceiling for race-baiting trolling masquerading as sports journalism. It was only a matter of time for DeadCokeAddict.com to follow suit.

If you go back and take a look, the playoff win was an aberration, all the teams he beat during his stint in Denver were sub .500 teams...and he had to pull off 4th quarter comebacks to do that.  Sure, they were exciting and the playoff win clouds everyone's memory but fast forward to the next week where Tom Brady had more touchdown passes than Tebow had completions.

MmmmBacon: What do these teams lose by letting him run through a few drills with their other free-agent prospects?


Credibility.

MmmmBacon: He's supposedly got his mechanics fixed.


According to...?

MmmmBacon: This is the off-season, following a season when many teams had their QBs exposed as talentless hacks.


Wasn't Tebow already exposed as a talentless hack when he played for the Jets and tried out for the Patriots?

I see several people in this thread, myself included, who have pointed to Tebow's statistics as a way to show that he can play better than several QBs that started in the NFL the past two seasons.  The problem is that the people who hate Tebow summarily dismiss those statistics.  So I'd say that Leonard Washington is correct and you are wrong. whom have also proved themselves unfit to play in the NFL.

FTFY

AdmirableSnackbar: if it wasn't for Tebow, Denver would not be where they are today.  Had they stuck with Orton and simply sucked, Manning wouldn't have gone there, Welker wouldn't have gone there, and they'd still be looking for a QB which would have definitely changed how they drafted the past two seasons.  Imagine how flat-out awful the Broncos would be right now if Tebow hadn't turned them around.  Say what you will about him as a person and as a QB, but he made one fark of an impact on that franchise.


I like this point. As much as Tebow was out of his league, I've had this discussion before as he started the chain of events that landed PFM in Denver and other key FAs to make the Broncos not only relevant but the odds-on favorite (FWIW) to win the AFC.  As a Broncos fan I don't hate Tebow, but I'm relieved he's no longer behind center for my team.

Thinking that was mad is as pathetic as hating Tim Tebow.



I don't think most people here really hate Tim Tebow. I think people hate what surrounds Tebow, that's not all his fault but it's still there, it has to be acknowledged.

I find Tim Tebow to be hilarious, like laugh out loud. I think he's a great guy though I don't agree with his beliefs in the slightest. I loved the stuff I heard coming out his mouth when he was mic'd up but god damn he's not a good QB. He's motion is terrible, his release is slow and he can't read defenses fast enough.

Some of those wins came in such a bizarre manner. Like the Chicago game, Denver never even should have gotten the ball back, it was just a boneheaded play by the Bear's running back going out of bounds and stopping the clock. A lot of games just seemed to have this bizarre "hand of god" moment that would lead to a win but those moments only arose after Denver's defense would get stop after stop. It was all the defense (in my opinion)

Says the guy who thinks Tim Tebow is a viable quarterback while Peyton Manning is overrated.

fickenchucker: Why isn't this goof not considering the feel-good redemption story and an extended career by just switching to halfback or fullback?  It would pay better than some lame college commentator job.  Endorsements and a "when life throws down roadblocks, just go around them" motivational-speaking cycle would add a ton of extra dough.

/He's not a good QB--I could throw ducks like him.


Because despite his professed Christianity, he hasn't got over the sin of Pride and his ego demands he play QB

MmmmBacon: Well, he can't fail any worse than some NFL QBs did in 2013. Might as well give Timmy a tryout, especially for teams that are clearly in need of a QB.


Why, at best if he has improved you get a slightly below average QB that comes with a media circus and distractions.

Is it, though? This is the off-season, following a season when many teams had their QBs exposed as talentless hacks. So there are many teams needing a new QB or two, and as long as they are looking for one, why not let Tebow show off his stuff? What do these teams lose by letting him run through a few drills with their other free-agent prospects?

He's supposedly got his mechanics fixed. If they aren't, that should become very apparent, very quickly. So again, what's the harm? For me, Tebow is just another free-agent QB looking for a job. If his agent is worth his percentage, he'll get a tryout or two in the next few months.
