Tim Tebow had a very rough game against the hard-hitting Detroit Lions. He is going to get much of the same when he comes up against the Raider defense.

Tebow has been sacked 13 times this season over his two starts.

He has not adapted to the fast pace of the NFL and is a second behind plays.

His arm motion and release was the biggest complaint people had about him coming out of college and it is something that he has yet to correct.

Yes, it is not as time consuming as it was when he was playing for the Florida Gators but he is not getting the ball out of his hand fast enough.

He is also not making the quick decision that other quarterbacks around the league make.

He has yet to realize that throwing the ball away is a very good option.

The Oakland Raiders are going to be without leading rusher Darren McFadden and have rusty veteran quarterback Carson Palmer starting behind center.

Tebow and the Denver Broncos are in prime position to grab a win but the quarterback’s flaws will be on display again.

Tebow is a winner and how he pulls off wins often times could not even be scripted, but this game, which should play heavily in his favor, will find him lost.

Tim Tebow’s best highlight that will come from this game will be him “Tebowing” before the game and after he gets his one and only score.
