I am not knocking Tebow's overall ability - but you can't compare his [limited] success throwing the ball out of the Wildcat to how he would fare as a drop-back passer on the Jets.
But we all know he's not a drop back passer....this is the equivalent of saying Mark would look even worse in the spread option.
All I'm saying is Sanchez has a sub-50% completion percentage. It's pretty crappy to keep knocking on Tebow's passing abilities when that's mainly what the argument is based on, when Sanchez has performed worse.
If Tebow "can't throw" then Sanchez sure as hell can't either.
Tebow's had 3 chances to throw the ball this year, he completed 2 and the third was a perfect pass that bounced off of his receiver's hands.
He's done the best anyone could ever do out of those opportunities, and until given more and he fails, no one here, especially Sanchez supporters, should be talking about how he can't throw. So far he's proven he can when asked, and in very clutch situations on top of that.
