    I just tweeted this article. I'm amazed at how quickly Tebow has gone from a guy that couldn't play QB in the NFL to now the Chiefs view him as a Michael Vick type with triple threat type skills.  I can't imagine how big the hype will get if he wins the next three games.

    I'm pulling for him.

      I just hope he gets a heck of a lot more protection than Vick does - the Eagles defense needs firing!!! I also hope the refs protect him - I'm biased as I am an Eagles fan, but it seems that there are far less flags thrown when Vick gets hit, than when every other QB in the league gets hit - while the Eagles deserved to lose on the weekend, there were quite a few late hits that weren't called - but the first time the Bears QB got hit late there was a flag...

      He was the greatest college football player, maybe ever. However, he has some problems with throwing accuracy. He needs an offense that is totally devised for him. That coach will never do that.

        I agree with you, as you do bring up a very valid point. However, i also tend to agree with most sports analysts when they say he's more along the lines of another Doug Flutie.  Sure, Flutie was a great qb, and he was always able to get players to rally around him when he was in his prime, but the teams that he played for never viewed him as the "guy" to play that position permanently.  No, he was always viewed as being "mr. right now" because of his height.  As for how this relates to Tim Tebow, many analysts have gone on record to say that when he got out of college that his throwing style was very unconventional; hence why a lot of analysts on espn didn't think he'd get drafted as high as he did, as many believed he'd become a project player at best.

        Unfortunately, Tebow hasn't completely lost his unconventional throwing style.  Sure, he's made a lot of improvements, but not enough to where he's convincing the Broncos that he's "Mr. Future" of that franchise.  No, he's more like "Mr. Right Now" for them.  In all honesty, I think what will more than likely happen is that they'll probably bring in another young qb to develop, and as soon as he matures or Tebow gets hurt, they'll get rid of Tim.  Sad, but I tend to agree with the analysts on tebow...

    i agree with dark Horse. Tim Tebow is a great guy, average football player. I don't think he is a true NFL starter, but I always liked him at florida especially when Chris leak was qb and they would bring Tebow in from 1 to 4 yards out for the qb draw that everyone knew was coming but nobody could stop. I wish the dude well.

    Great points all around.  I first saw Tebow play when one of his high school games was broadcast on ESPN.  I loved watching him tear it up at Florida.  However, as much as I have tried to deny it, I don't feel Tebow forecasts well as an NFL qb.  Three of the most essential attributes for playing quarterback in the NFL are accuracy, a quick release, and ability to read defenses.  Tebow has never been an accurate passer.  Some of that may be due to his atrocious release. Not only is the NFL passing game all about timing, but the additional number of fumbles due to his wind-up are costly.  Tebow is a smart person, but he has shown no ability to read defenses either.  Not all the sacks fall on the shoulders of the offensive line. Tebow's indecisiveness when it comes to throwing the football leads him to hold on to the ball and take more sacks than he should.  Some of this is due to his lack of exposure to a pro-style offense, but he has not shown great signs of improvement since entering the league.

    I hope I am wrong.  Tebow is a great guy, and I am still a fan.

    I'm pulling for him too.  Every time I hear some expert on ESPN talking about how he doesn't have the right tools I'm hoping he makes them eat their words.  Unfortunately, I'm afraid they're right.  NFL quarterbacks drop back and throw, and that's not the strongest part of his game.

    He really is similar, in a way, to a young Mike Vick.  I thought years ago about Mike Vick and how be needed to learn to become drop-back passer or he'd be out of the league in 5 years.  People back then would argue there was no reason Vick couldn't just keep going as he was, but it sure didn't seem like it.  Back in Atlanta he was getting himself killed just about every game, and he had all kinds of trouble, just like Tebow, with the verticle passing game.  We'll, he ended up going to prison and now, finally, he's become a much better passer and more well-rounded quarterback. 

    Tebow doesn't have Vick's wheels, but he sort of has the same problem. On the other hand, what makes Tebow different could be a strength.  For one thing, he's got about 4 inches and 50 pounds on Vick.  He's a mass of muscle, and can take a lot more abuse.  When I look at it that way, I start to think maybe it's not the same situation after all.   

    He's either going to prove everyone wrong and do it his way, or defenses are going to figure him out and shut him down.  But it sure would be pretty cool if he redefined the quaterback position in the NFL, wouldn't it?

    We don't get the Broncos much where I live, so I'm really looking forward to seeing him in the NFL Network game next week.
