If their defense (against winless Miami) hadn't kept them close, Tebow wouldn't have been able to bring them back. Once they face a team with talent, the margin will be too large for him to come back from.

20 TD's and 6 picks with a raiting in the upper 90's lol...but no I get what you are saying.
I mean there has been unique QB's to come into the NFL...but they all had an ability to throw from the pocket....and really almost none of the scrambling QB's that were super succesfull in college but lacked the ability to be a pocket passer just didnt cut it as a QB...Pat white,Eric Crouch,Marcus Vick...could go on and on....Tebow was probably the best College player ever...and if not he has to be in the top 3 or 4.
I just think he should be a kinda "utility" player...he has the work ethic and the maturity to be an NFL player...I just dont think his skill set will allow for him to be a consistent QB at this level....He can do some stuff that almost no other QB in the league can do...but at the same time...he cant do what almost every other QB in the nfl can do.
I just think an NFL QB has to have that awareness in the pocket and be able to stand in there and deliver accurate passes...everything other skill a QB may have plays second fiddle to that.
I have just not seen anything that make me believe that Tebow can stand in there and make the kind of throws he needs to.
I seen on alot of occasions last year and last game. Where Tebow scrambled from the pocket well before the protection broke down.
He has to have better awareness back there.
As mentioned before..His throwing Mechanics are off....and not only does that make for inconsistent passes, it gives him less time to start his throws.
I know this has always been his knock....but he dosent have a great arm,and yea you can be pretty good in the NFL with a below average arm...Chad Pennington was a pretty successful QB and he had a weak arm.
But he was a pocket passer....he made great decisions...and his passes were accurate.
He has great work ethic and he is a "different" style of player and can cause problems for D's
but just as we have seen with lots of other unique players and unique styles...it can only get you so far and last so long.
It will be figured out.
The fans love him...almost everybody loves him...
So that can get the crowed going....but dont think for a second that Tebow can come out and suck for two games and still here his name being chanted at the end of games....we will be hearing Brady Chants in Denver if that happens.
Really we can debate it all day...but just like almost any thing...it has 2 sides...and I guess both sides have a legit point...all we can really do is wait and see how his next few starts end up
