This debate isn't Mark vs Tebow vs McElroy. This is a debate as to whether or not Tebow can last in this league and whether or not he is a legitimate starter. McElroy probably isn't but he was selected because we know the other two sucked BASED OFF OF THE SAMPLE SIZE FROM THEIR CAREERS. This is literally frustrating to listen to. You skipped my post dissecting his games showing why he sucked. You work in more meaningless numbers and nitpick and ignore criticism of him and thats why you Tebow fans have the rep you do. You possess blind love for a meaningless player and when a ngeative thing is said about him you close your eyes and ears and shout "LALALALALALALALALA" like a five year old.
Obviously you can because he did it and went 7-4. And you ignore the fact the kid uses his legs. He is NOT a pocket passer. He is a DUAL RUSH QB! He is part passer. Part running back.
He didn't complete over 50%, he completed 47%(what ****ing difference on one of the worst teams in the league in dropped passes!
) and partly because he can run for those other passes that would normally go for 3 yards that makes these other quarterbacks complete at 60%. What is so freaking amazing about a pass in the backfield that goes for 3 yards? All that does is pad completion % stats. I'd rather have Tebow get me 5.4 yards per carry. I mean are you impressed with his "75% completion %" this year?
Get that through your head. There is a big difference between a WCO style quarterback that you are used to seeing in the NFL and the offense Tim Tebow ran. And yes there is room for both.
Go back and see Terry Bradhsaw's numbers, 4 time superbowl champion. He completed a career 52%. Big freaking difference.
Nevermind the fact, that yes Tebow can complete more than 50% of his passes if he is placed in a spread option offense similar to that of Wilson, RG3, Cam Newton and Colin K. I guarantee it! He has done it his entire college career. And you will look stupified by it when he will do this.
And his defense didn't carry him 95 yards downfield against the Jets. His defense didn't complete for 316 passing yards and another 50 rushing against the Steelers. It was his arm and his legs.
