So many people are playing their holier than thou I am going with the professionals card, as if the critics have the market cornered on the professional opinion.

Last I checked, I too am going with the professionals opinions, the opinions that say this...

"Tim Tebow is not only the best quarterback in this league, I think he's the best football player in the country." said Steve Spurrier "...maybe the best to ever play college football. That's how good he is."

  • The professionals who said Tebow can play QB in the NFL.
  • The professionals who said Tebow is first round material
  • The professionals who said Tebow was one of the two best QB's in the draft.
  • The professionals who are praising Tebows progress as a QB in the NFL.
  • The professionals who scratch their heads and think that the professionals who said this...

"I don't think Tebow can play in a pro-style offense, not [at] quarterback," Jimmy Johnson said. "I think a team that's gonna look at Tim Tebow. They're gonna make one of two decisions. If they're going to bring him into their style of play, with their coaching staff, they've gotta project him to be maybe an H-back.

"I don't know if he's fast enough to be a receiver, maybe he could be a tight end. [But] I don't know if he can block, I don't know if he can catch the ball. But he's gotta play another position. He can't play quarterback."

...or say this...

"He isn't close to being as good as Jimmy Clausen." Pete Prisco.

"I’d say third or fourth round worst-case scenario," Said Mel Kiper "second round as a best case."

  • ...possess 'an ill-formed and nebulous opinion'.

Who can we trust?

Professionals who have actually coached one of the greatest QB's to ever play at this level, win three Super Bowls this century and possess two NCAA National Championships in the past four years?

Does it make sense to mock their professional opinion while embracing the professional opinions of Tebows doubters and critics with the rhetoric they profusely spew as the gospel?

The opinions of so-called expert professionals whose take boarder on comic book material?

Or the professionals who base their opinions on the encyclopedia of success, Tim Tebow wrote during his high school and college career? 

Those of us who believe Tebow can be successful in the NFL, are not the one's ignoring the professional opinions that count!

Some of these so-called expert professionals really keep you guessing. I mean which Jimmy Johnson do we believe? The November 2009 Jimmy Johnson, or the January 2009 Jimmy Johnson?

"The more I watch Tebow, the more I think he might be a quarterback," said Jimmy Johnson, former head coach of the Dallas Cowboys. "He has the arm strength. He makes accurate throws. He has the physical presence. He can get you believing."

How Bout Them Denver Broncos!!
