I agree with that LOL. I honestly feel that Tebow deserves a shot this weekend. I mean, why not?

maybe from other people, but you didn't hear anything like that from me.

Like I said, it was a fun ride here in Denver last year, hell I was at the playoff game when Tebow threw the 80 yard TD to DM Thomas. But if I were a fan of any NFL team, I would not want Tim Tebow as my starting QB.

Lol .. wins is a team stat.
And I stand by that. I am simply stating that I think that he has what it takes to be an NFL QB. And, to be honest, I do not want him leading my 49ers. JAX should give him a shot, they need a leader. QB is not all about statistics. QB must be a leader with strong motivational skills, drive and determination. Those characteristics will provide positive results for the Team...=wins!!!

The Bronco's won last year, because of their defense, and in spite of Tebow. The scores of last years wins, and the record of the team this year, with a real NFL QB prove that.

Coaches are fixated on his poor mechanics, because in the 5 seconds it takes Tebow to wind up and actually finally throw the ball, ANY half decent NFL cornerback will have already broken on the ball, and will be waiting to pick it off.

The only reason he hasn't thrown a lot more picks, is because he's so inaccurate, he manages to miss the intended receiver, the defensive back, the entire playing field, and just about everything else.

Geez, this is incredible.

Look at the scores last year. It was the DEFENSE that won for Denver last year. NOT Tebow.

That's what Elway understood, and why he was so quick to dump him last year.

But, what does Elway know about playing QB in the NFL, right?

What??

How many 'Tebowmaniacs' are there in the NYC area. Two or three, at best? That has nothing to do with it.

Maybe, just maybe, the reason that Ryan is starting Sanchez is because Sanchez, as bad as he is, is still light years better than Tebow.

There's a reason why the putrid Jacksonville Jags are the ONLY team in the entire league who have any interest in Tebow.

Because the Jets have already seen enough of Tebow to be 100% sure that he will never be able to get the job done. They've already decided to let him go, so why play him.

Because, as bad as Sanchez has been, he's still light years better than Tebow.

Because it looks like with the way his contract is written, and the salary cap hit that would be involved, the Jets will likely have to keep Sanchez next year too. So, may as well try to get him some confidence back, for the potential good of next years team.

I am not a Tebowmaniac, I am simply stating that he can make it in the NFL.

Everyone is attacking Tebow because he is a bible beater and people are taken aback by that. If he were more hip, there would not be so much backlash

exactly. Folks, there's a reason why the Denver Broncos were the #1 rushing team in the NFL last year...because all they did was hand it off to Willis McGahee. Broncos coaching staff DID NOT want Tebow throwing the ball.

Hell, wasn't there a game last year where Tebow only threw 8 passes?? LOL

Really? Explain why people aren't attacking Peyton Manning then. He's just as Christian, just as hard-working, and just as charitable as Tim Tebow. Could it be that people rail on Tebow because he's massively overhyped?
