He was a 2nd year player that had nearly 1 1/2 years to sit on the bench and learn the pro game.
Just like Kaepernik, basically.
Except Kaepernik sh*ts on Tebow in every facet on the field.
Dynamic runner who can actually throw a football, and damn well I might add.
How about trying a little intellectual conversation, huh? Nobody said that Tebow is greater than Peyton Manning, but simply stated a fact about the playoffs. Certainly no one is saying that Flacco > Manning, but he won today.
Give Tebow the same consideration given to any other young QB, especially one that went to the playoffs. Were you guys ever going to like Tebow this year, after trading to get him? Because it doesn't look like it to me. Even though he wasn't given much of a chance to play, he has done nothing to inspire your hatred.
Count the posts in this thread. Looks like a big gang of bullies picking on 2 or 3 people, and personally attacking other fans by calling them stupid, fat, or other vulgar names like "Teblowers".
And before you say you don't hate him, but you hate his "cult", that is BS and you know it is. There is no cult on this forum except for the cult of Tebow haters. That's the only cult I've seen, bullying and viciously attacking other fans on this board for no reason.
Tim Tebow can not score at will. If you think Tebow is anything close to Kaepernick, RG3, Wilson, Rodgers, Newton even..you're just delusional. Tim Tebow is the king of maybe pulling out a game late when the D manages to completely shut down the opponent's offense but that just doesn't happen anymore. If you want to win playoff games you need an offense that has the ability to score 30+ points nearly at will. Charles Woodson, AJ Hawk, BJ Raji, Clay Matthews, Champ Bailey, Von Miller.........all useless come playoff time. Offense wins games now. Score, score, and score again with the rules in place. That;s how you win. Tim Tebow at his very best can't do that.
Remember the football strike? Remember how Tebow got no reps in preseason because there wasn't a preseason? Remember how Kyle Orton, not Tebow, started the first 5 games of 2011? Remember how it wasn't pretty, but he won some games? And he ran right past Revis when the Jets played the Broncos, I do believe. Tebow bashers love to froth at the mouth and claim anybody who gives Tebow a compliment is a "cultist".
Teblow sucks worse than a 2 dollar hooker!!! The Jets discovered at the start of training camp that trading for him was huge mistake.
I have no problem at all with Tebow.
By all accounts, he's a good guy who works as hard as anyone you'll find.
But guess what? There are multiple guys on every single team in the league that fit that description. They just don't have the polarizing personality that Tebow has or wear their religion on their sleeve.
Like I said, I'm sure Tebow is a great guy.
He just isn't a professional QB.
In Canada? Maybe
But if you think this kid can have prolonged success in the NFL as a starting QB by looking like he doesn't even belong on a football field for 55 minutes and then pulling last second wins out of his ass every week, then you're sadly mistaken.
If Tebow comes to grips with the fact that he isn't an NFL QB and accepts a role as a gadget player/H-back, then maybe he'll stick around in this league.
Otherwise, good luck with the Montreal Alhouettes, Tim.
Just give me a freaking chance. I work hard, I have the intangibles more than anyone in the league. WTF was wrong with Sporano?
OMG, you're so right! They figured out Tebow sucked in pre-season games .... oh wait, Westy said they didn't even practice any Tebow plays and he's still waiting for them to unveil it. So how did they determine he sucked? Did they let him start a game? A quarter? Nay, merry men, in one game all year he was allowed a whole drive. The coach allowed him to pass the ball 8 times, but verily even though his passes were pretty good, he sucks.
We are the mighty Jets Fan Base, who decide someone sucks because he didn't play this year. The Mighty Jets who say that a QB on the Broncos who has a winning record and goes to the playoffs is not actually a QB. Even though his title on the Jets official page has "QB" next to his name, and he's wearing a Jets uniform.
Jets Fans - the only fans in the world who want a player on their team to suck.
Ya know, it should would be interesting, to me at least, to see Tebow running the offenses used in Washington, Seattle or SF. Those coaches understood something that Mike McCoy apparently never did, which is that running Spread Option can dictate coverages that teams can use against you.
Not saying that Tebow would do as well as RG3, Kapernick or Russell. Just that it would be interesting to see.
tebow is a bad qb, but Sanchez is even worse. there is no need to continue arguing . comparing him to Peyton is ridiculous !
I'm still hoping we cut Tebow soon, then we will experience these Tebow aftershocks for 6-9 months. Hopefully with decreasing frequency. But let's say the jets lose week 1, some idiot will post how they'd have won with Tebow. Or, Tebow will go off week 7 in the CFL or wherever he lands, and some maniac will come here and say how everyone in the NFL is wrong.
It's all part of the process. I just hope we take that next step soon.
If the Jets are smart they will keep Tebow and start him next season.
The 2013 season is shaping up to be an outright DISASTER, the Jets won't be able to fill half the stadium with the team they're going to put on the field, by having Tebow as the QB fans will show up just to see it. We're headed for so much turnover on this team, the GM will be new and not the best available, the DC will be an also-ran, the OC won't be Norv Turner or anyone like him, the special teams coach is an unproven commodity, we're in cap hell and won't be able to fix most of our personnel problems either.
The Jets had better think long and hard before they cut Tebow loose because he may be their only selling point next season... Again, THINK LONG AND HARD ABOUT IT! This team has no drawing power, NONE! Tebow will at least bring fans to the stadium, and that is worth something.
