BUT.. he excels just as much or more in non typical ways.
Also.. using Tebow's completion percentage while with the Broncos is wrong anyway.. he was put in an impossible situation. Fox wouldn't even let him throw the ball. They were trying to compete for a championship when they should have just been letting Tebow "play" like they let Cam play his first season.
Tebow's running ability also accounts for many of his passes. And even Elway said Tebow's completion numbers were skewed because Fox's O used so many deep passes. Complete opposite of most QBs these days.
How many PASSING plays were called that tebow improvised into a run? Alot. Not the coaching staffs fault the guy looks to run right after seeing his 1st progression covered.
