Tim Tebow is arguably the most popular, scrutinized, indifferent quarterback the NFL has ever seen. He has many suitors, many doubters and a whole bunch of people in the middle who don’t know what he really is yet.
Well, I know what he really is: He is a winner.
If you don’t believe me, let his stats and accolades speak for themselves.
In high school, he was twice named Florida Player of the Year. As a senior he led his school to their first-ever class 4A state championship. He currently owns the Florida state prep football records for total offense (12,960), career passing yards (9,940), touchdowns (159) and completed passes (631). He also has single-season state records in total offense (5,552), passing yards (4,286), touchdown passes (46) and total touchdowns (70).
In college at Florida, he helped Urban Meyer, Chris Leak and the rest of the offense to a victory in the National Championship game over Ohio State.
A year later he became the full-time starter. In three complete seasons and 41 games, Tebow lost only six times. Yes, six. That is only six games while playing the best athletes and best teams in the country week in and week out.
Add another National Championship and BCS bowl win to his resume.
He moves on to the NFL scene and what did he do last year as a rookie? Sparked a Denver offense that was stale and predictable. This year he is doing much of the same.
Say all you want, but the guy wins. He isn’t Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers or anyone else of the sort. Hell, he may not even be Mark Sanchez (the first below average QB I could think of), but the kid wins.
Do I care he only completed two passes a few weeks ago? NO. Do I care he is a sub-50 percent passer? NO.
He doesn’t have to be.
The Denver Broncos front office, whether they like him or not, should be blessed to have this guy. Did the Broncos play this way for Orton? Did you think they’d play this way for Quinn?
Not for one second do any of these players doubt him. In fact, some players have been quoted saying they didn’t have a doubt in their minds these past few weeks that Tebow would come through when need be. And that’s what a starting quarterback is all about. Love him, hate him or abstain from the question, Tim Tebow has won, is winning and will continue to win. He isn’t flashy, but you best believe it’s going to take more than hell and high water to stop this guy. Watch the rest of the season and see how this team plays.
It comes down to wins and losses, and I believe Al Davis said it best, “Just win baby!”
