Old School Tebow

Stally's Goal Line Stand

I hate to be his biggest proponent as I always got bugged about the hype just like everyone else, but I've also always respected Tim Tebow.  His game is not orthodox in anyway, but I appreciate the mentality he brings to the game.

He works hard.  He's a team player.  He shows a ton of heart.  He's dedicated to the game.  And, he's an all-around good citizen.

As my dad and I talked about recently, Tebow plays the game the way it's supposed to be played.  He's an old-school football player that just straps on the pads and goes and plays the game.  He's listed as a quarterback, and, entering the draft, everyone wanted to switch him to wide receiver or fullback or tight end or wherever.  The bottom line is that he's a football player.

In last week's game against the Chargers, he stepped in and nearly led the Broncos to a comeback win.  Unfortunately, with the way he plays, I think he'd ultimately be somewhat easy to game plan for as you'd just have a linebacker spy him the whole game.  I also don't think that with the way he plays his body would hold up for 16 games in the NFL.  However, Denver should find a way to get him in there for about one quarter a game to completely throw off the opponents game plan and stick to the more orthodox (and boring) Kyle Orton the rest of the way.

  1. Tim Tebow is a great guy and a hard worker, but he will never be a franchise quarterback. He should have a specialty package and that's about it. He cannot be relied on for an entire game. They should stick with Kyle Orton, but their stupid fans won't allow it. When a team starts making personnel decisions based on what their fans want, that's when a team falls apart.
