Now that we're seeing both extremes, can we finally come to the middle and properly evaluate Tim Tebow?
Tebow's time hasn't ended yet. I think the best way to evaluate him is how he handles success and failures. He has failed two games in a row. Let's see what happens over time. He can't do everything himself. It also not his fault that the Denver Broncos lost to the New England Patriots, which has lost only three times this year. Tebow played a terrible game against the Bills. Let's see if he can lead his team to the playoffs.
That's why I wanted to pose the question the way that I did. I'm not in any way suggesting that Tebow's done, but I was asking is "Tebow Time" the phenomenon is done. This is a media creation. When you give a QB all the credit for the wins, you have to give him all the blame for the losses, and that's not fair to Tebow either way. Between the fanatics that wanna treat him like he's Montana and assume that anyone that critiques him is speaking against his faith, and those that genuinely hate the kid for no good reason, he's only been properly and fairly evaluated by a very few. I hope we can all get perspective on the kid now. We won't really know what he can or can't do until next year.
Tebow's evaluation has to come at the end of the season, just like everyone elses. It's too bad the media got so crazy on him EVERY game. He's put together a pretty solid sophmore season. He has twice the number of TD's (12) to interceptions (6) and 1,700 yards through the air, which isn't too impressive, but he has rushed for almost 700 yards and 6 TD's. He improved both his passing game and his running game this season, who says with a off-season as the starter he can't do even more? Tebow really could be for real, which is going to scare opposing defenses all game, rather than just the 4th quarter.
You must remember that John Elway was a scrambler when he first came into the league. He was loudly declared as an unorthodox player with a strong arm. He had to go thru a learning curve too. How good or how much better Tim Tebow gets is to be determined by his coaches. They made an adjustment that resulted in a six game winning streak, now they must follow through on this pattern of adjustment. John Fox should build this team around Tim Tebow. The coaches of the Denver Broncos know that he has potential, they now must help him out by surrounding him with the players that he needs such as a speedy wide reciever. The Broncos also need a few more running backs that will compliment that young offensive line that likes to block for the run. The future is unlimited when you talk of how good Tim Tebow can be, just remember what they said about John Elway.
Yup, It's Midnight - "Dong Dong!"

Are you all buying all the praise from Jet coaches? Some people believe this is just more hype being added to the media circus now in New York. The Jets are getting more attention then the Giants, who did win the championship you know.

Can Tim Tebow only be the third string quarterback this season?He dominated the college football scene for a couple of years and now has been reduced to the back up to the back up quarterback, How can this be ?

All I can say is that if the reports on ESPN are true, then it does confirm my beliefs that the Broncos have NEVER believed that Tim Tebow was their "guy" for the future. And having a guy like Peyton Manning, does seem like a logical step to distance themselves from Tebow mania...

I really want to see Tebow play. It's not enough that the Jets can't run the ball or pass it for Tebow to play significantly. What will it take. If he comes in and runs the table, the Jets could be a playoff team:)

I was watching Denver down 10 - 0 and feeling a bit disappointed that Tebow's run was going to end. Then the unbelievable happens. Crazy.

I saw this debated on first take on espn a while back, but i want to know what you guys think. Do you think that Tim Tebow gets the most unfair scrutiny than any other quarterback in nfl history? Or any player history i might add?
