Love football. Play football, watch football, too much football... and I like to hit the links as well.
A pit stain to football fans everywhere, you sir take the cake
You might be the worst writer on this whole site
I enjoyed your article. Fox and Elway are just now starting to buy into the possibility that Tim could help them keep their jobs. Comparing the bruises on Castle and Sanchez after the last two Bronco games to those on Tebow, I’m not sure there’s much of a case for NFL groupthink that the pocket a safer place for any quarterback. Neither does groupthink consider the fear that a quarterback with the physique and mind set of Brian Erlacher instills in a Darrelle Revis at the moment he should have put his body where his mouth had been earlier!
The Bronco’s defense is and should be given a lot of credit for the Tebow wins the last several weeks. However, the point that escapes most is that a Tebow ground game heavy offense burns clock (at 30 seconds per offensive ground play vs 7 seconds per offensive pass play) and minimizes the amount of time the defense is on the field… thereby keeping them rested. Therein lies the contrast between the Elway heyday exciting big play offense and the Tebow game. The big play offense was always in a hurry to get Elway and friends off the field which placed an undue workload on the defense.
A defense that is rested and on the field 1/3 less minutes can be more effective and is subject to fewer injuries. Thus Tebow deserves some small credit and it may not be totally coincidental to have the awesome defense the Broncos have seen recently.
The attached comparison between early Elway and early Tebow shows Tebow at this stage of his career to be further along than Elway at the same point.

This guy is a moron that doesn't no shit about college football, not a single one of his articles are worth reading, biggest waste of time
There is probably a reason you're getting almost all negative replys about your LaMichael James article....because you are incorrect. You took one game against UCLA and decided to extrapolate that into a full, all-encompassed opinion of him. I think you should remember that James had to be helped off the first in the first half. Having played competitive sport, I'm well aware of an athletes to-the-death attitude and a lot of the time you play hurt. So cut the kid some slack for ONLY dropping 120+ and 2 TD's on the Bruins.
