After a first half in which Tom Brady threw five touchdown passes, which is a NFL post season record for TD passes in one half, a little bit of Tebow Mania has died, and rightfully so. Anyone who honestly believed that Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos could continue to win playing “College” style ball was only fooling themselves. This is the NFL and that stands for Not For Long if you cant hang with the big boys.
This is not college and you can not win trying to play like it is. Tebow lacks a few major components to be a quality NFL quarteback. The first is the ability to throw the ball, this is the only one of his flaws i will list because that is what a quarterback is supposed to do. How can you be a quarterback in the NFL and cant even make a 10 yard pass look pretty. It is just sad to see them run the option, I mean seriously these are professionals. These LBs and defensive line players are to fast and physical to allow much success with the option.
If I were John Elway and the Broncos I would abandon the Tebow experiment. Sure it was fun while it lasted but lets be realistic, the way John Fox had to change everything up just so Tebow could “succeed” is not a formula for long term success.
Now back to the second half of the glue factory slaughter….
