I like Tebow. But this is pretty funny. Last year was fun and exciting as a fan, but I don't think I've seen the ball hit the ground that much with any other starting NFL QB.

If the ground wouldn't drop the ball so much, his completion percentage would be a lot better.

Wouldn't that be cool if you could take one team's "ground" in FF they way you take one teams defense? You get points for guessing which team will have the lowest completion percentage, not including interceptions.

At a press conference at the teamís practice facilities, Jets head coach Rex Ryan said Tebow had developed great chemistry with the ground, adding that Tebow threw to the ground not just during scrimmages, but also throughout passing drills and warm-ups. Ryan noted that Tebow often stayed after practice with the QB coach throwing to the ground for hours.

That's what makes it fun. Sanchez sucks and collapses mentally from time to time. Tim Tebow can't throw a forward pass to save his life, but his maniacal fanbase will scream and cry for him to start at the first sign of fail from Sanchez, which will probably about week 3 or so.

Couldn't happen to a nicer franchise and coach. Hilarious!

35% completion Percentage

I guess that means his ground percentage is 65%!

If I were a Gator fanboy I would be more concerned about 2 carries for 5 yards and 4 sacks. I didn't see the game, guessing when his 1st option was covered he tried to pull it down and run and the Gints DL was patient and there to take him down.

Let me know if I was off base.
