Again after yesterday’s 45-10 loss to the Lions, the Tebow haters were at it. They very well may have a point. Tebow might never amount to a solid NFL quarterback and if he ever does it will be through untraditional methods. Sure he can run and after Michael Vick may be the best running QB in the league, but he does not possess Vick’s arm.
Thus far Tebow is not having great success as a passer. His completion percentage is right below 50% and his passer rating is below 80.0. While those numbers aren’t inspiring to the Bronco’s management, Tebow has thrown for 9 touchdowns as opposed to 4 interceptions. Additionally, Tebow has run for 7 touchdowns.
Who would they turn to for the nine remaining games? Kyle Orton, Brady Quinn? Given the two alternatives they should absolutely stick with Tebow. Quarterback’s will always receive the most blame for their teams losses—its simply the nature of the position. However, the Bronco’s team as a whole is bad. Tebow was not responsible for the defense giving up 45 points. On the other hand, he was responsible for the lack of offensive rhythm by the Broncos. His offensive line did little to help him out allowing 7 sacks.
The point is simply let’s relax America. Tebow probably is not the savior and let’s stop treating him as such. On the other end of the spectrum he might still turn out to be a decent quarterback so let’s allow him to develop because on this 2-5 Bronco’s team who is his play really hurting?
