Tim Tebow a below average quarterback with a way above average following.




Tim Tebow a below average quarterback with a way above average following.
( Why?!! )

Sense when is being below average something to be celebrated? As a person Tim Tebow appears to be a well above average man. However as a NFL quarterback Tebow has shown nothing but very below average ability to play QB in this league. The question to ponder here is how in a league where you are judged by performance can a quarterback who completes under 40% of his passes be so highly celebrated? And before you say he win let's remember he lost 3 of his last 4 games and looked horrible in the losses. Heck he looked pretty bad in his team's wins too.

The Denver Broncos took the AFC west with a 8&8 record, losing their last three game to back into the division title. This is not to say Tebow didn't have something to do with Denver winning their division, but how much is up for debate. And debated is has been all season. You are either a hater or lover there's is no in between on the subject of Tim Tebow. Most experts see Tebow as a great competitor and a born leader, however bad throwing form and happy feet add up to a slim chance at becoming a franchise quarterback. Other see him as a over hyped QB with little or no upside to become an franchise quarterback. How would you like to be sitting in John Elway or John Fox seat? Tebow backers see him as an unappreciated talent who just deserve a chance to play, forget the fact he can't throw a football consistently or the fact the broncos had to dumb down their offense to fit his ability to play quarterback.

I fall on the over hyped side of the debate. Tebow has shown very little in his starts that leads me to believe he has the ability to improve enough to become an NFL ready let along a franchise quarterback in this league. There is no doubt that Tim Tebow is a competitor and and fighter and will take a big hit for his team. But as we've seen in this season of passing quarterbacks, if you can't consistently hit open receivers you become a liability to your team's offense.I know there are backers of Tebow who thinks all he needs is time to improve and that his leadership will get him by until the improvement comes. I think we've seen enough to know this is as good as it gets with this young QB, so time is not the answer however a position change might prolong his career in the NFL.

No Pass Rush, No Pass D



No Pass Rush, No Pass D

Well two of the best offensive team's in the NFL are now watching the playoffs from home, and the one thing they have in common is they couldn't stop a pass when needed. No pass rush means the pass D. With all the offensive fire power the New Orleans Saints and Green Bay Packers have it came down to the inafectiveness of their defense to stop the pass that sent them home early. And most of their problem started up front with the defensive line play.

Even the casual fan know if you can't get a quarterback to move off his spot and he has what seem to be all day to look for an open Receiver it doesn't matter who your DB's are they are toast. It boil down to this " No Pass Rush, No Pass D " as great as the Saints and Packers were on offense they were just as bad on defense. Offense gets you to the dance, defense keeps you in it.

It will be very interesting to see how theses two teams with high power offensives will handle what is sure to be a very long off season tying to answer the many questions marks they have on the defensive's side of the ball.
