So someone looked this stuff up... it may seem like I am adding fuel to the fire, but I am not. I understand who he is and what his body of work is. However...
  • In his short NFL career Tebow has engineered more game-winning drives (7), according to Pro Football Reference, than either Sam Bradford (5) or Nick Foles (5).
  • As a junior in high school, playing for Ponta Vedra-Nease (Fla.) Tebow played the fourth quarter of a game with a broken leg and scored a touchdown on a 28-yard run.
  • He has won a high school state championship, a Heisman trophy as a true sophomore, a college title, and in the only extended playing time he received as a professional, he went 7-3 and won a playoff game.

He is a winner. I understand it doesn't make sense, but can you ignore the resume'?

Yeah, good luck to them on that. The guy has the physical skills to to be a great tight end, if he can catch, but he can't throw an NFL caliber pass.

I live in Denver and I gotta say, the guy was fun to watch. Erratic but you never knew when he was going to do something stellar.

As a Bronco fan, Tebow sure made the 2010 season VERY interesting.
The last 5 minutes were exciting with a QB that just would not quit.
He took a very average team to the playoff and beat the Steelers.

Obviously after we got Peyton Manning, he was never going to be our starting QB.
But I often though a creative coach could have come up with some interesting plays with him
in as a receiver or fullback that could either run or pass. Also he could come in as QB on
short yardage and red zone situations (or when we had big leads).

If Manning did not take every snap/every game maybe he would have something left in the
tank for the playoffs! But no one ever accused John Fox of being creative!

It will be interesting to see what two years working with a QB coach has done for his accuracy.
I've got to assume Chip Kelly has something creative in mind. They did not sign him to be the
fifth QB in camp.

That resume is meaningless.

7 game-winning drives in 3 seasons? Aaron Rodgers has 12 in 7 seasons as a starter. Whoa! Tebow has more GWDs/season than Rodgers! I can't believe the Packers didn't sign him and make him their starter!

High school? Seriously? You think what someone did in high school is in any way relevant to the NFL? You know, hundreds of kids have unbelievable high school seasons at QB every year. Few make it to the NFL. Fewer still are any good. And you're claiming that what he did in one quarter of one high school game is relevant? You're not just drinking the Kool-Aid, you're swimming in a pool of it.

A Heisman? Have you ever even looked at the list of QB Heisman winners? Johny Manziel? Troy Smith? Jason White? Eric Crouch? Danny Wuerffel? Charlie Ward? Gino Torreta?

There has never - never - been a cult of personality around an NFL player that was more out of proportion to that player's NFL talent than with Tebow.

So why was he out of the NFL for two years?
