Tim Tebow rode a good defense and had a string of luck that the media ate up towards the end of the season. You're talking about an NFL quarterback who had a 46% completion percentage and less than 2000 yards in the season that somehow, in your opinion, outshines what Peyton Manning did in his first season with a new team and a new system after an entire year off with a neck injury.
Peyton came back from that year off and had one of his best seasons, statistically, of his career. His defense blew the ravens game when it was in the bag and we're now debating that Tim Tebow was more productive in Denver. Unbelievable.

The bottom line is that Denver got rid of Tebow and signed Peyton with the hopes of going farther in playoffs and Peyton was unable to deliver because he choked whereas Tebow didn't in the same situation.No, Timmy Tebow is not a better QB than Peyton Manning but I am just pointing out the irony of how everyone claims Tebow isn't a NFL QB but he sure as heck performed better than Peyton did in the postseason as Denver's starting QB. Yeah I know, Peyton didn't choke again, it is the recievers fault, the weather was too cold for him, he had missed a season, etc........etc.........
I would love to have someone with Tim's character on the team. The guy is a proven winner. He plays with heart.... that counts for a lot.
Here is what I see when I see Tim Tebow. His fire to win lifts all the players around him. Everyone plays at a higher level. The guy has talent, you don't win the Heisman without it. Sure, he has an unconventional release when compared to other NFL QBs, but I think when given a legit chance to prove himself, he has done so. Not only did he win consistently at the college level, he turned Denver around. Even a blind person could see how his presence on the field lifted the entire team. Heck, it lifted all the fans as well. I think a lot of people give him flack over his religious convictions, but to me, that just makes him even more appealing. I think the Jets made a HUGE mistake by not allowing him take over the starting job last season.
I think Mr. Reese would like more to signed/draft a " true " TE than signed Tebow to play at TE.
" Success is never final, but failure can be " B.P.
In the right scheme, he can be successful. But more successful than you average NFL QB? Debatable. After a years worth of film, I'm sure teams will have figured him out. You can run the read option, except he can't throw and he's not all that fast. So you're banking on his "intangibles". Again, flying blind.
You don't do business on blind faith.
And that's why he doesn't have a job now. But the guy is heck of a football player, that's for sure.
