Tebow done?

I always knew Tim Tebow was totally overrated.  Another schmuck QB out of Florida that has a long history of obscene press coverage on mediocre talent.  I never believed he'd make it and was floored when the Broncos selected him in the first round.  What a waste.  The only FLA quarterbacks that have done anything in the pros in recent memory was Jim Machine Gun Kelly, Bernie Kosar, and Vinnie Testicle... of which I consider only Kelly one to brag about.

 

I think this guys article nails it.  For his sake, I hope Tebow knows how to sell car insurance.

 

The idea of Tebow: Captain America in cleats...a football savior...he throws spirals and emotes hope...a cure...a phenomenon...a man who could turn around any franchise...an athlete...a passer...a winner...a winner who wants to win more than winning ever wanted to win because winning.

The reality of Tebow: slow, plodding even...mostly inaccurate passer...overblown as a multifaceted threat...or even a two-point threat because a restricted space like a two-point conversion requires quick thinking, accurate throwing and foot speed—he has none of those.

Did Tebow self-assign that high rating though?  I think that was given him by others.

And of course, no-one has that same high expectation of sports commentators like Mike Freeman, who wrote the article.  That article will be forgotten in a couple of weeks.

I'm not saying Tim Tebow is an amazing quarterback any more than I'm saying he's an awful one.  I'm just saying that I've never seen Tim Tebow himself inflate who he was to others as a person or a quarterback.  And it's awfully easy as a sportswriter to savage someone from the sidelines --I've seen newspaper sporting columnists do the same about us as cyclists because one of us made him five minutes later for work than usual, and because it got "rah rahs" from a bunch of people and therefore, advertising dollars for the media outlet he worked for.

I agree with MM that the article has the usual overdone, over-the-topness I tend to see from that arena.

Wow.  You guys are showing the love for Tebow.  He's done... and I don't care what MM has to say... though I agree with him.  He was never that good.  Great college player but doesn't have any of the skills to be an NFLer.

 

 

50000000 to 1 we hear nothing about how awesome the Florida, Florida St., Miami, or Central Florida quarterbacks are this year, next year, the following year, and so on and none of those bastards will do anything in the NFL.  Look for a Winston flop in Tampa Bay.  You heard it here first.

I don't dislike him, and I've never heard one of his former teammates have anything bad to say about him.

He sucked at QB in the NFL. FACT

I'm not knocking Tim.  To be honest, if the guy can stick somewhere, I'd be very happy for him.  That'd be resilience.  But his skills just don't seem to translate into the NFL.  Also, for his sake, the win he was a part of in Denver over the Steelers was a memorable one and if he does nothing else, he can hang his hat on that.
