Who are we trying to change here exactly?

1. The player whose career passer rating broke the standing NCAA record for a 4 yrs passer rating 06-09? 
2. The player who broke Herschel Walkers SEC TD record, while playing Georgia?
3. The player who finished a game with a broken leg in high school?
4. The Player with the longest touchdown pass in any BCS bowl game?
5. The Player who became the first SEC player to reach 12,000 yards of total offense?
6. The player who has scored more points than any non-kicker in SEC history?
7. The player who was named the SEC offensive player of the year last season?
8. The Player who became the first to rush and pass for 20 TD's in an NCAA season?
9. The player who won the Heisman the first season he started at Quarterback?
10 The player who is a two-time national champion?
11. The Player who recorded the most TD's in a season for any position in SEC history?
12. The players whose 533 yards, set a Bowl Championship Series game record?
13. The player who possesses leadership and heart to the point of making an immortalized speech that lead to the Gators possessing a 22 game winning streak, and another National Championship Title?
14. The Player who is considered the greatest player in college football history?
15. The player who transcended his high school stardom to the college ranks?

High school 95 TD's 9,810 Passing Yards 62 Rushing 3,189 yards

Florida Gator 88 TD's 9,285 Passing Yards 57 TD's Rushing 2,947 Yards Rushing

It is what it is, a phenomenal career. And if it is not broke why try and fix it? Would we try and fix the living legend Brett Favres throwing motion?

You can find countless photos and video footage of the legend Brett Favre, the gun slinger, bringing the ball up from down around his hips in a windmill motion to unleash it towards being arguably the greatest player to ever play the game at the position.

People love to compare Tim Tebow to Byron Leftwich, claiming he will get killed if he tried that in the NFL, as if the speed of his release was going to have a severe impact on his sack average.

The Legend Favre, has a 20 passing attempts to 1 sack average

The past two seasons Byron Leftwich has 28 passing attempts per sack.

Two time Super Bowl winner Ben Roethlisberger has 10 passing attempts per sack. Byron will be starting for Ben Roethlisberger this season,

Reality, logic and reason clearly override conventional thinking regarding the throwing motion of a Quarterback; the proof is in the pudding.

Sometimes we have to face the facts and allow reality dictate our views when conventional wisdom aims to compromise it.

Thing is a QB generally has three to four seconds after the ball is snapped to deliver the ball.

Now what the QB does in the meantime with the ball is irrelevant as long as the ball is delivered precisely to the receiver on time and on target.

Now if a QB wants to utilize some of that time at his disposal by methodically manipulating the delivery of the ball while checking down and waiting for his receivers to break from their routes, who in the hell are we to tell them otherwise.

Is there a politically correct throwing motion cop on the sideline with a radar gun going to give the QB a citation for his throwing motion, because it is not fast enough, despite the quarterbacks performing at an optimal level as far as productivity and efficiency goes?

I am so sick of the notion that conventional throwing motions supercede those of unorthodox throwing motions. Did God create us all from the same mold? He may have with the rest of you, because mine was clearly broken, because I am not buying this cookie cutter throwing motion ideology aiming to hammer away at Tim Tebow's throwing motion as if it is a curse rather than a blessing.

I can't live in a deed restricted community either, something about having my neighbors dictate what color I paint my house and where you park your boat…

The Clintons coined a phrase, "diversity is our stregnth."

Can we not be so caught up with what we think we know, look where that got us as far as assuming mobility is the best thing since sliced bread at the QB position.

Remember when the world was round and the future was bright? That wasn't so long ago. Common sense is something that can easily be exploited by hype and propaganda. As football fans looking over at the grass on the other side know this all too well, the grass is not as green as our rival neighbors want to make us believe it is…

Can we for once just let the results speak for themselves and flush the common sense of conventional wisdom down the drain?

Tebows leading receiver's last season where Aaron Hernandez and Riley Cooper. They both went in the fourth and fifth round of the draft for goodness sakes.

Tebows handicap last season was clearly not his throwing motion, but rather the lack of a first round caliber receiver. And even with that handicap Tebow still managed to rock,

Imagine what he can do being surrounded by some real NFL talent?

Tebow is amazing, only a fool would deny that. He's had a dazzling career so far, so please let's polish this diamond, not hack it up to pieces to fit what we think works, when Tebow just go done putting on a clinic for what works.

As far as I am concerned, the sky is the limit for Tebow and his throwing motion as unorthodox as it is.

If there is something wrong with Tim Tebow's throwing motion then there is something wrong with Brett Favres, making wrong therefore nothing more than a relative concept whose function is irrelivant in actual reality.
