Aside from the last few minutes of this game, he looked pretty bad. I wouldn't jump on his bandwagon just yet. It's one game, and I'm sure once he faces a tougher team than the Dolphins (which is practically every other team in the NFL), he'll be exposed for the mediocre quarterback he is.
True, I'll give him a pass though at least for this week since it was his first start, and he's still basically a rookie in this league to me.
He was beyond terrible for about 55 minutes. Missing wide open receivers, had a few nice runs but that's about it. All of a sudden game is close and he becomes somewhat accurate and has the ability to complete passes. Now I know it's because the defense was different the last 5 minutes but I don't think that's it. He couldn't hit a wide open guy in the 1st quarter but had no problem doing so in the 4th.
It's ridiculous. It's like he likes coming from behind and attempting to be the hero or something
Because I saw nothing from him still to convince me that he's going to be a successful QB for a long period of time.
And I know guy can change. I'm a Niner fan, it's taken years and years for Alex Smith to start looking good. I am well aware that guys can improve. The difference is that guys like that have more talent throwing the ball than Tebow. It's going to be a serious uphill battle to get good enough in this league in that department.
Was that Tebow or some guy who had the lucky ticket and got slected to be Denvers QB for the day? Got damn those passes were disgusting.
Notice northwinds didnt say a word about that.
Gobb...I guess you missed it, but I was posting "Tebow Time" the last few minutes of the game....the guy is a beast, a stud...and one reason I like him so much is that I know that with every pass he completes, with every clutch run he makes, with every comeback he orchestrates....you are throwing things at the TV because of who he is...... Just win baby!
His leadership/intangibles should compliment his natural abilities, not be the main topic of conversation. That speaks volumes about his poor fundamentals
There will be tougher teams down the road than the Dolphins. He has an "it" quality about him, which can serve him well in close games late but when/if Denver gets down big (and they probably will at various times down the stretch), and the opposition knows that Denver has to pass, how will Tebow fare? How will be fare against better defenses than Miami? Can he stand in the pocket and pick apart a defense?
