Living through the Denver Broncos quarterback controversy nightmare of the last few years, it has become clear that there is no way to have a totally rational discussion regarding Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos.
Not so much about Tim Tebow the man, as almost everyone agrees that he is a nice guy, polite, religious, walks on water and helps old ladies cross the street. Nobody can challenge that description.
But start to have any type of discussion about Tim Tebow the current and future NFL quarterback and we are back to the Mason-Dixon line, the Republican-Democratic debates, the LeBron vs. Kobe argument.
There just is no middle ground here.
Either he is the next coming of Steve Young, John Elway or Doug Flutie or he is the reincarnation of Bobby Douglas. These just happen to be four of the top career rushing quarterbacks in the NFL.
Which one he most resembles is what much of the debate is really about.
And this argument isn't going to end any time soon.
With his current 4-1 record, many fans of Denver and Tebow feel he can take this team to the promised land: making the playoffs this year and maybe the Super Bowl in the next year or two.
Then there are others who feel that no matter how inspiring and run-proficient he is, his lack of accuracy and having even moderate NFL passing skills will hold him and the Broncos back.
Let's look at what these four players have accomplished in their careers and see where the similarities and differences between them and Tebow fall.
