[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Stop giving Tebow the credit that Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil deserve : Artist: I take nothing away from the team , I agree they are strong players. I only disagree that Tebow has done nothing and is lucky. I believe he is the spark that has got the team going. Just like Jim McMahon with the 85 Bears head butting line men after a play, I think Tebow and his drive to win has the team focused, regardless of what any may feel about his skills

i take nothing away from tebow either, but let's not get carried away with him. he's a 45% passer on a 6-5 team. the only competent team he's beaten is the Raiders (and that might be pushing the limits of "competent" given their recent history and their 38-13 thrashing at the hands of the Patriots).
yes, he's 5-1. i respect that. and if Champ Bailey says he's a leader, he's a leader. But he's beating the Chiefs and Chargers of the world, coached by knuckleheads like Todd Haley and Norv Turner. He's also passing 45% and I HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE the cl*st*rf*ck offense. It doesn't belong in the pros, and I hope the gimmicks run out eventually.
I think he does have the will to improve, but if he doesn't have the physical ability, he'll be out of the league in three years. he needs to throw at least 60% to win playoff games. the Ravens and the Steelers will destroy him otherwise (like the Lions did and I think the Pats will, too)
he is not HIM and I hate hearing people who make him out to be anything more than a feel good story. I could care less about his religion - I'm also a confirmed Catholic, and my parents run a food pantry in California... big f***ing deal. Learn to play the QB position.
And share the credit with the boys on defense. Dumervil's 5.5 sacks in the past 4 games and Miller's 10.5 on the season might be a bigger factor in their wins. Just sayin'
