Not the craziest thing ive heard this week.
Also, as far as your second commentWell, from what i saw last season, Tebow actually HELPED the D out by sustaining long, albeit boring, drives. When Tebow was running effectively last season, i saw multiple 6-8 minute drives down the field. Score or not, that helps your defense immensely.Tim is successful when the Defense keeps the opposing Offense to around 13-16 points
Where as in MArk, you just never know when you are going to get that int, pick 6, fumble in the pocket, or swatted pass. Ive seen so many MArk Sanchez led 3 n outs, that if i was a defensive player, i wouldnt be the most inspired player watching my hard work repaid by consecutive 3 n outs.
I know you like him as a guy and, IIRC, share his beliefs, but that doesn't mean he should be our starter. Tim just isn't good enough to justify benching Mark. I definitely don't enjoy Mark as my QB, but I would rather him over Tim any day of the week. Tim just wouldn't increase our chances of winning. Sorry.
Either way, this entire circus act needs to go. Rex, Tanny, Mark, Tim. The whole thing is just an utter embarrassment.
This isn't church, this isn't a missionary trip; we don't need Tebow as our starter. Tim seems like a really cool guy and all, but sharing his faith isn't a justifiable reason to think he should start.
More and more, I see people that care more about his faith or his "Cinderella story" than they do about his QB "abilities". There is no reason why this guy should be our starter. There just ins't.
See how so many people have strayed for God in this country, and look at was has transpired as those beliefs have dimmed.
If you are ok with it, thats fine. I would never push my beliefs on you or anyone, but i do have rights in this country, which was founded under God, to express mine, and i do so regularly.
Go Tim, Go Christianity, and Go GOD!!!!
High school: 9,810 passing yards, 3,186 rushing yards, 95 passing TD's and 62 rushing TD's = 157 TD's, led team to State Title.
College: 3 year starter, Heisman Trophy winner, led Gators to BCS National Championship 2008, 13-1 record senior year. 9,286 passing yards, 37 passing TD's and 51 rushing TD's (broke Herschel Walkers TD record) for a total of 88 TD's, 15 INT's, 3,000 rushing yards. I'm stopping here on college stats they are too numerous to go on.
NFL: Went 7-4 as a starter, Led Broncos to Division win, beat the Pittsburgh Steelers and their #1 D in 1st playoff game, lost to NE Patriots eventual AFC Champion Super Bowl Representative (best NFL team over last decade and a half). Season stats; over 11 games, 1,726 passing yards, 12 TD's, 6 INT's, 660 rushing yards, 6 rushing TD's thats 18 total TD's.
This guy does not lose at any level. No religion here just stats. But hey, he has a terrible throwing motion and a slow release and his accuracy isn't great (that sounds like another Jet QB), so he must be bad. Yeah , lets not play a guy that wins, had success at every level and against any odds you stack against him, in favor of a QB with NO Leadership skills, is the worse accuracy QB in the NFL, no pocket presence, turnovers at the most inoppurtune times, etc. etc. etc.
Any one not calling for a change of QB with the insertion of Tebow is just flat out blind or just in denial. I guess you all want Dan Marino, throw for 350 yds a game, you get to see lots of yardage but you never get to win a SB.
You're acting as if Tebow actually "led" them to the playoffs. That is utterly laughable. The only people who actually think that are his insane followers.
Also, are we really gonna act like High School/College ball is in any way the same thing as the NFL? Geez, you're delusional.
Also, I don't recall us at all talking about the U.S and what it was founded upon and blah blah blah. We were talking about FOOTBALL. Stay focused, my man.
If you share his faith, that's cool. I believe in Christianity myself, so don't think I'm disagreeing with you on the whole "Go Christianity! Go GOD!" thing. I'm also not hating on Tim because of his beliefs. I just don't think having the same faith as him is a good enough reason to demand that he start no matter what. I bet you anything that if he was Muslim or some other religion, but was still his good ol' Timmy self, that same group of Christians wouldn't want him starting.

The QB yes, usually is considered the leader, tell me who the leader was on that team? Kyle Orton wasn't? My friend it was all Tebow, he has that ability to raise everyones game and he did in Denver, you are in denial if you didn't recognize that.
As if your response about High School and College wasn't a predictable response, that is the quick and easy answer isn't it? He was both of those teams. I live in Florida and know his whole career, you have no clue on how he, and almost he alone led that High School team to a State Championship.
The Gators, I don't even need to defend his greatness there.
But the point, the point is about leadership, heart, will, determination, refusal to accept failure, these are why he is a success and will be one in the NFL. You obviously believe a QB needs none of those, only a throwing motion and quick release is your litmus test. You obviously believe that, because Sanchez has none of them, but he he looks better throwing the ball so yeah let's go with that. Gimme a break.
