I had to take a break from discussing Tebow during his win streak. There were simply too many ideas clouded by Tebowmania to fully evaluate his season as a QB. Since he has lost, and the madness has ended. Let’s take a look inside the numbers for Tim Tebow. Two things that boiled my soul about this season. Discrediting the effort of the Broncos defense during the win streak, and ignoring Tebow’s quarterback stats.
|Tim Tebow Total QBR By Quarter|
|Tim Tebow||1st 8 Starts||Last 5 Starts|
|Yards per att||6.4||7.4|
|Yards per rush||5.5||4.8|
Out of the 7 games during the Broncos win streak, only two teams scored more than 15 points in those games. If your defense is only giving up two touchdowns over a given period of time you as the offense have a very great chance of winning that game. You may only need 13 points to win the game! Takes a lot of pressure off a quarterback is doesn’t necessarily throw the ball to well.
Everyone says Tebow plays better in the fourth. With a 55.5 QB rating your are right he does play better. The highest average he has in the previous 3 quarters is 38 with the low as 15.2. Not to difficult to eclipse those numbers. These numbers are pathetic lol including the so called clutch in the fourth. Back to the kitchen all you Tebowers! During the playoffs Tebow went 19-47. Tebow completes less than 50% of all his passes. If Tebow is to become a quarterback in this league he will need to complete more than 10 passes in a game, and the completion percentage needs to increase to at least 55%. This is shooting low, I would like to see something in the 60′s, but we are talking about an awful throwing motion. Congratulations on a successful 8-8 season with the Denver Broncos, but I sincerely hope your fans realize you are just not NFL ready.
