If Tebow had thrown 2 INTs for every TD like Elway in 1983...

    He would have been benched LONG before the playoffs...

    Tebow Haters, and there are PLENTY of then in Denver, are not being Realistic about the Rookie...

    But then again I remember, "Elway should go back to Baseball" back in the day...

    Give the kid some time.

    He has Ability and clearly he's a Leader...

    And so far, a Winner. :thup:

    :)

    peace...

    Tebow is not a rookie.

    I like Tim Tebow. He's won me over. And I'm a Noles fan.

    But here is a serious question.

    Name me any QB who was successful over time with a completion percentage of less than 50%?

    Also, name any QB who was able to improve his completion percentage by more than 10% over seasons?

    Elway came damn close to that 10% from his first to second season.

    47.5% to 56.3%

    Tebow still is not, and never will be Elway.

    Elway wasn't any better the next year... And for all intents, yes he is... And brought in under Impossible Circumstances.

    Yeah, but he still tossed WAY too many INTs... Not Kurt Warner level, but too many.

    Tebow showed GREAT improvement last week... IN THE PLAYOFFS coming off of a 3 game skid.

    :)

    peace...

    Every other pass he threw was a duck, yo

    Good luck fixing that.
