In response to wozzy's comment:
Tebow sucks, he probably sucks less for the Jests right now because their O Line is a joke along with every other position, so I'd start him. Also Rex won't be able to say he didn't try everything to win.
But just because Sancheez sucks, it doesn't make Tebow good. The Broncos were a very good team last year, when they met in the playoffs BB forced Tebow to pass to win, that's where he gets exposed. Very little touch on the ball, can't throw the deep out or make those across the field passes... he would have a great career in the arena league.
75% of what makes a QB good is between his ears. Great numbers of big armed busts have cycled through the NFL. Tebow certainly looks to be challenged to make certain throws. But that does not completely exclude him from the possibility of still being a relatively effective QB given the right coaching and scheme. He has 17 TDs and 9 INTs for his career. That ain't too shabby for a guy so many say sucks. Quite a bit better than some guy named Luck everybody has wood for. Actually, he has done remarkably well considering he has had zero support from the powers that be on both teams he has been on.
You want to see a raw deal? This guy is the poster child for that.
He'll never win the big game for the same reason Vick never will, when faced with a superior post season defense that can sit a defender on him, shadow him, you take away his ability to make plays with his feet thefore he becomes a pocket passer... a job he cannot do. Period.
Nobody will ever come from college, completing 50% of his passes and make a good Pro... never. He'll win regular season games, thats all. This isn't a personal indictment of Tebow, I could care less about him or his religion or whatever; he never should have been drafted.
