Oh the stupidity!!! Somebody is trying to make a point of the fact the Tebow has the highest TD per touch ratio in the whole nfl since he started playing last year (8.8%).

Holy crap. WHO CARES! His mechanics suck. He will be picked off for sure. Bradford and the eminent orton and who could forget the brilliant Newton all have beautiful pocket presence, a great release and r just brilliant QBs. I know this because the man with the most profound nfl knowledge, Mr Dildoe (errr I mean Dilfer), told me so on ESPN. I know these guys all have worse numbers regarding interceptions than tebow bit that is just numbers. Doesn't mean a thing. Defenses salivate for Tebows slow release so even if he doesn't get picked as often he should because he sucks. Where can I buy tickets to watch 50 million dollar Bradford play. He is beautiful and deserves to play. My dream match up would be Bradford vs newton.....oh the fire power.

Watching tebow score TDs is BORING!!!!

Oh the stupidity!!! Somebody is trying to make a point of the fact the Tebow is a good QB.

Holy crap. His mechanics suck. I know this because the man with the most profound nfl knowledge, Mr Dildoe (errr I mean Dilfer), told me so on ESPN. Defenses salivate for Tebows slow release so even if he doesn't get picked as often he should because he sucks. Where can I buy tickets to watch overrated Tebow play. My dream match up would be Tebow vs John Beck.....oh the fire power.

Watching tebow score no TDs is BORING!!!!

Oh my flatulent friend... This is too easy!

So let me drop some knowledge on u instead of insulting.

Let's talk about firepower....

We will compare yds/attempt which includes all passing yds (passing and running), TDs/(int+fum), total yds / td and total yds/(int + fum)

Let's compare Tebow, aaron Rodgers, and Elway. Let's look at the first 8-10 games of each. Stats from espn

Tebow- 6.5yds/attempt, 21/9 TDs/turn-overs, 94.2yds/td and 219.8yds/turn-over

Elway- 6.3yds/attemp, 8TDs/TOs, 258yds/TD, and 129YDs/TO

Aaron Rodgers- 5.4yds/attempt, 1 TD/ 1 TO, 376YDs/TD, and 376YDs/TO

These are different stats than u prob usually look at but the fact is that tebow gets more yds per snap that he directly controls yds (I.e. passes or runs himself), is more efficient (requires less total yds per td achieved), protects the ball much better (TD to turnover ratio) and takes the ball farther per turnover.

Elway didn't do too much better through the rest off his career (6.8 yds/attempt, 333TDs/296TO, 164.8yds/TD, 185.4YDs/TO). He does improve the number of yds he moves the ball per TO he is responsible for which is very important. Still not as good as Tebow.

Aaron does get better (7.8 yds/attempt, 133TDs/142TOs, 127.8 yds/TD and 119.7yds/TOs). He does improve efficiency (reduce number of yds gained per TD achieved. But...u guessed it....not as efficient as Tebow. His TD to TO ratio is markedly worse too.

So it is interesting....he takes the ball further per attempt but has to move the ball more yards to achieve a TD.... This is because he turns the ball over more than Tebow.

Of Course this year he is even better than his total stats getting more than 9 yds per attempt.

So...tebow is already better than Elway ever was. He is better than Aaron was in his first games. It temains to be seen if he can b as good as Aaron.

By the way, run Vicks numbers and u will see for yourself.

So...I think I have already said, " the numbers don't lie".

Elway can read them and weep. Tebow is twice the QB and 10x the man that he is. Will be fun to watch him best the Smallway and also to see if he can develop into an elite QB like Aaron (and that is a big if even though he is starting better that Aaron did).

My work here is done.

Correction: Elway had 14 turn overs to go with his 8 TDs in his first starts.

Take home: who cares about 3rd down conversions...it is about wins which comes from TD efficiency (I.e. yds/TD achieved).

Elway is a great front office success. Who else could have his team winning so many games without a QB worth a crap? I don't blame him for not pedaling Tebow. The only chance of getting more than a seventh round pick for the guy is to wait until some team desperate for a fullback loses their senses and offers a sixth round pick.

Uhhh...Elfweiner is worse at the front office than he was at QB.

Here is real analysis, not the crap u all suck up from Especially StuPid Network.

Tebow's job = win games.........check

Elway's job = evaluate talent........uh, not even close to getting the job done. In the face of clear evidence his response was "no". Seriously, he is a clear absolute failure at his job.

Real story.....tebow looking to trade Elway....for someone who has a clue.

Elway and Meril Hodge should pool their neurons, all six or seven of them, and start a QB analysis show for Extraordinarily StuPid Network where their self importance and absolute ignorance could form the cornerstone of the brain trust "educating" us simple fans. It would elevate the kind of high level entertainment we have grown accustomed to between Sunday's from these two this year.

This just in....the emporers have no pants.

Uhhhh....you didn't watch the game. Tebow delivered the winning TD throw exactly on target which was dropped by his receiver so they had to settle for tying field goal....and then the defense did make a great play to prevent OT....so they saved the bumbling receiver....not Tebow who would have won it in it anyway.

Tim Tebow definitely won this game for the Denver Tebows. He always does. Nobody else deserves any credit. Tebow wins by himself! In fact, the Denver Tebows don't have any other players.

Good thing McGahee had over 100 yards and a 24 yard TD...subtract that and Marshmallo Broncos lose...

Again...Tebow moved the ball at wil including with his arm and delivered the game winning TD throw exactly on target and exactly on time. That is the definition of a player delivering on his responsibility.

Tebow and the rest of Donkey nation seem to be the only ones who understand that it takes a team to win. In fact, it is a proven idea that offenses win games but defenses win championships. We love our defense for sure thank you very much for noticing.

What remains though is that u have to have a QB that delivers too and Tebow does that in spades, always has,

It is exactly the kind of astute, accurate, well informed and balanced analysis (NOT) that would make u a great addition to the Elfweiner and Hodgr show. U should take your 3 neurons and apply.
