Understanding the Tim Tebow phenomenon
He's a fantastic runner
Tebow's inferior passing has led pundits -- many of them former NFL players -- to suggest that he's really a running back who is out of position (that might be the biggest argument going about Tebow). With his size and speed, Tebow is absolutely a great runner, having rushed for 660 yards and six touchdowns for the Broncos this season. By contrast, he threw for 12 touchdowns with a completion rate of 46.5 percent, terrible by today's NFL standards.
