Sorry I thought you were talking about "Pro Bowl" QB Andrew Luck for a minute there
Bingo! Every concern
, cuss word, put down
or freak out about Tebow could be said about any other QB.
But but but Tebow sucks... GROW UP! Stop being a punk hater just to be a punk hater...Did he kick your dog???? Then GROW UP!
Thing is, though, that's not true.
You never heard people wondering why Peyton Manning's throwing mechanics were abysmal and never seeming to get better. You don't hear people talking about Tom Brady's accuracy being terrible or about Philip Rivers being a scattershot type of QB.
When Tebow got lots of playing time in 2011, the Broncos won games by the Denver defense keeping the game close the entire time, and then Tebow was able to run around and improvise against a tired and worn out opposing defense. If you doubt that, just look at how Tebow was performing in the first three quarters of the games he played that season. Dude couldn't complete even 40% of his passes.
People may want to talk about that Pittsburgh OT game when Dick LeBeau had what was likely his worst DC game ever, but they conveniently forget the Broncos game the week before. Denver needed to beat KC to guarantee that it won the AFC West with a 9-7 record, as San Diego and Oakland were both pushing for that division title as well. It was essentially a playoff game, and the Broncos were playing against a 6-9 Chiefs team led by Kyle Orton. So how did Tebow step up and deliver in this crucial game to clinch the AFC West?
6/22, 60 yards, 1 INT, 1 lost fumble, 20.6 passer rating
Clutch! The only reason the Broncos even had a chance to beat the Steelers in a fluke game was because the Raiders choked against the Chargers. All three of those teams finished 8-8, and the Broncos won on tiebreakers.
And then, yeah, the Steelers game. The only game that people point to as evidence that Tebow can do anything in this league as a QB.
Remember what followed that? 9/26 for 136 yards, 1 lost fumble, passer rating under 60. Denver met an offense it couldn't stop in the Patriots, and Tebow was completely incapable of leading that team to anything resembling a close game (and that was against a team that ranked nearly DEAD LAST in pass defense that season).
