That's some funny logic.

Great. Now how much better is a 3 yard completion in that instance? I think you're missing the point of what an average is.
But it's a perfect analogy for how the haters measured Tebow's performance. They were always putting Tebow in 3rd and 17 in their minds. Orton was only judged on 3rd and 2.
