Newton didn't look good yesterday. I don't know why that has to be such a hard truth to swallow. If Tebow threw 9-27 with 3 interceptions in a loss, I would say he did not play well.
And it was against pro bowl defense.
Well lets take a look with the rose colored glasses off
Carolina rushing rank= #3
Broncos rushing rank= #1
Newton rush att in 16 starts =122
Tebow in 11 starts= 128
Carolina defense rank= 28th
Broncos defense rank=20th
Newton pass attempts=517
Tebow pass attempts=271
Newton pass%= 60%
Newton QB rating = 84.5
Tebow rating= 72.9
Newton Yards passing= 4,051
Please tell me you wouldnt be excited about Tebow if he had those stats! Hec your excited now and he stinks as a passer.
Denver runs Tebow more than Newton runs and i keep seeing how posters here say your OL is awful yet you were number one in rushing. The only thing holding your team back is Tebow and as a Charger fan, im glad he will be the #1 going into TC.
