A True Tim Tebow Assessment

Posted on: November 19, 2011 12:05 am
 

There has been so much uproar over Tim Tebow in the NFL, it has been ridiculous. The main reason is because of how flamboyant he is with his religion. Who cares what his religion is? Religion has nothing to do with sports. People need to evaluate him as a NFL QB and that is it. So here is a real assessment of Tim Tebow, Denver Broncos QB.

There is no question that Tim Tebow has the intangibles to QB in the NFL. However, his skill set as a QB is weak, very weak. As a QB, a quick release is a must and Tebow's mechanics is probably the slowest in the league. It looks even slower than Byron Leftwich's release. Leftwich didn't have the legs that Tebow has, which is truly an asset in today's NFL. However, we all know what eventually happens to a running QB in the NFL. Tebow will receive more hits than any QB has if he keeps playing the same way, and he is a tough guy, no doubt, but injury is inevitable with his style of play. What is the team's back up plan if he is injured? We all have laughed at teams that had scrambling type QBs with pocket passers as back ups, but what about Tebow's situation? Can a team run a Tebow style offense and have a back up plan? A week of practice goes by running Tebow's offense and all of the sudden he is hurt, how does a Brady Quinn come in? How does a team adjust? Tebow has a long way to go to learn the pass plays that are dependable. 

Who Tebow has beaten in the NFL. Has he played the top tier teams in the NFL? No, not at all. Winning in the NFL is great but lets not forget Rex Grossman was a super bowl QB. Tebow and the Broncos are 4-1 with him as a starter and they have only scored more than 20 points in one game, their win against the Raiders. Eddie Royal scored the decisive TD through punt return. Other than that, the Broncos haven't scored more than 20 points. While I hate the Jets, the Jets only had three days to prepare against the new Tebow offense. Somewhat similar to the Wildcat and the Wildcat went extinct pretty quick. Another player that created a stir in the NFL, Michael Vick, had a Tebow type effect in 2010. Teams forgot how to play against Vick and he looked like a diamond in the rough. Now that there is tape against him, he has looked college like. Expectations are the same for Tebow. This new offense will be figured out and easily killed. It will be very curious to see the Denver game plan down by 14 points. Do they change the QB?

A True Tim Tebow Assessment

Where is all the Tebow support now? 9-7 with 2 wins against winning teams. The Broncos have been outscored big time with Tebow as a starter, even outscored with a 7-3 record against losing teams. 45% accuracy just doesn't cut it.

A True Tim Tebow Assessment

You're the hater. Tim Tebow isn't a bad guy, he is just an average at best QB in the NFL. You will continually suck off Tebow and ignore the fact that T.J. Yates is also 1-0 in the playoffs. I would say the Texans victory over Cincinnati was a better win because they throttled a healthy team while the Broncos took advantage of a beaten up Steelers team. Tebow made some good passes but was still 10-21 for the game. The 3rd and long in regulation was a two hop passs to a WR running an in pattern who was open. One of the worst passes of the season. They took advantage of an overly aggressive run defense after running the ball 21 of 22 times on first down.

All the Broncos are right now is the 2011 Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks beat down a healthy Saints team after going 7-9 for the season. Didn't see anything special about Tebow. He threw some good passes, but that is what NFL QBs are supposed to do. Tebow gets verbal BJs for good passes because he set such a low standard for himself. The Tebow mania is ridiculous to say the least. Ben Roethlisberger won a super bowl in his second year and never got media coverage like this. TJ Yates won a playoff game as a rookie for the Texans which is their playoff appearance and gets no credit. But I guess it is the christian way to spite others like Yates and Orton to support their hypocritical beliefs. If Tebow was Jewish, Muslim, or Mormon, he would be shunned by the same fans. Tebow fans prayed for Orton's failure to support Tebow. It simply doesn't get more hypocritical than that.

A True Tim Tebow Assessment

Another dumb comment from deeunoriginal. What does Tony Romo and the Cowboys have to with this blog? Absolutely nothing. Why do you bring them up? Because you have absolutely nothing to say in support of Tim Tebow. You prove me right everytime you speak, clown.

Tim Tebow may be the 45th best QB in the league right now. Yeah, that's right, there are many back up QBs that are better than him. Easily. 6-22 yesterday and he is less than 50% accurate career wise. Horrible. Disgusting. The Broncos have absolutely no chance to do anything as long as they have Tebow as a QB.

In case you didn't notice, the Broncos have the same record as the Cowboys. They won their division in a tie breaker at 8-8. It doesn't get much more laughable than that. Denver is 8 point underdogs at home. Are you going to hate on the Vegas experts for disrespecting your lover boy?

All Tebow does is win? Tebow will be 7-5 at seasons end. Yeah, that is really a winner. LMAO. 6-22 in a big game. Horrible. The Broncos will have a different QB next year for sure.

A True Tim Tebow Assessment

Again, never said I hated Tim Tebow. Just said his skills as a QB are subpar and so have meny NFL experts. But us true NFL people get ridiculed by the 'faithful' who can't separate religion and football. I have seen and heard many experts talk about Tebow's lack of skills and they never bring up religion. Yet, the religious people do when they defend Tebow. I guess that is what religion is all about though...fake opression to form a cause? Sounds biblical.

A True Tim Tebow Assessment

I come back from vacation to these clown arguments. Look at Tebow's record, look at Tebow's record. I guess record means everything. The Cowboys should have never played the 0-14 Troy Aikman another snap ever again and what a mistake the Colts made with the 3-13 Peyton Manning. The Broncos went 7-1 and not because of Tim Tebow. Last time I checked, a QB plays 4 quarters. Just because the Broncos faced back up QB after back up QB through a very strange stretch of weeks, doesn't mean Tebow is a good player. Trent Dilfer won 17 games in a row, Rex Grossman was a Auper Bowl QB, and Mark Sanchez played in consecutive AFC Championship games. None of those things mean crap in the big scheme of things so let me take your lame 7-1 record, which is now 7-3, and use it as toilet paper. Tim Tebow is a future ESPN special which asks where are they now? and that is it. Get over it clowns.
