I live in Oklahoma and Jason White is living it up doing local commercials and making appearances at gun and boat shows. Don't judge him!
BTW, there is no comparison to White and TT. White is a choke artist but I do respect him for hanging in there with massive knee problems.
Tebow was drafted in the first round while White was undrafted. White flunked a tryout with the K.C. Chiefs, but eventually signed an undrafted free agent contract with the Tennessee Titans. I will admit that Tebow should have been a second round choice rather than a first. Sounds like a case of sour grapes to me.

Tebow has enough arm strength, but no arm accuracy. Good luck teaching accuracy to him, Sparangina. If arm accuracy could be coached, then most any guy of the street could be made a QB.

Tebow stays late after practice to throw. His problem is he throws to stationary objects. He can hit the goal post from 30 yards. I have yet to see a goalpost roun a 4.4 40

Just because Manning and TT live in NY and play for NY teams doesn't mean they're comparable especially when we're talking about football. TT isn't even in the same galaxy as Manning so please, if you want to use comparisons for TT use players like Blaine Gabert or any of the past Florida University QB's.

Denver WRs were drop prone? Can you catch an 80mph duck thrown at your shins or over your head or so high it goes into the 6th row? Oh yea I forgot, those constant and numerous errant passes of TT's we're actually "good passes" to not cause turnovers. Only for TT.

White was pretty good for OU but like I said, he was a choker but in fairness the guy was never 100% healthy. TT I've said was a monster in college and would get my vote for best college athlete of all time. There is also no way TT should have been drafted in rounds 1-5 when we have seen so much better players than TT come in the 6th round. Tom Brady for example. The idiocy can be put on one man, McDaniels and we see where that's gotten his career. TT owes it all to him. He should be Tebowing for McDaniels.

There is no sour grapes here pal if you're insinuating I have them. My love for OU stays with OU. What the individuals do in the pros I could almost care less unless they go to the 49ers.

Perhaps Tebow should get a chance to start in NY considering what Sanchez isn't doing for the Jets. Tebow might not be the most gifted QB in football, but he did seem to know how to win in Denver after taking over for another struggling starter. I can remember a few QBs with limited abilities such as Billy Kilmer, Len Dawson, and Brian Sipe who were successful NFL QBs and many gifted QBS who were NFL flops such as Jamarcus Russell, Tim Couch, and Mike Phipps.
Except those players you put into your post, were NFL QBs. Yes Denver won games last year. However, he also hurt his team with his style of play. Watch the last game with KC, he could not even get one touchdown. Also against the Bills when they were playing very badly, Tebow could not get it done. It is ok to look at the positives, but you also have to look at the negatives also.

The question is not that he can or can not play football. The question is who else is getting this type of hype who is not starting? He is getting more press coverage than players who is starting.

It is not due to his football prowess. It is because of his extreme religious beliefs.

Well, and his release takes too long. I wouldn't Tebow off just yet but, he is most definately not starting QB material right now.

Extreme? Was he burning Korans or something?
