Default The Spike

When a QB does a spike to stop the clock, does that count as an official incomplete pass?

I am pretty much understanding that it is. So, BSPN analysts that make fun of Tebow's completion % dont take into account a spike to stop the clock, a hail Mary pass, and a drop/good defensive play?

Isnt it funny how biased points of views blind haters? Those people are really suppose to be objective. However, objective reporting has been gone since the 50s.

Anyway, isnt that something that should be pointed out while they snicker at Tebow's completion %?

Do they or have you seen any of them anywhere point out Bradford (who they worship) is completing 49% and is 0-4 this year?

Oh, right. That doesnt count with their agenda. Oh wait, BSPN doesnt have an agenda.

It still would have only been 50%. Now that we know he's going to be the starter, he will be taking 1st team reps etc. Hopefully those throws that are underthrown work themselves out with practice and game experience. Seemed to me when he entered the game he was a bit rusty due to sitting on the sidelines all season/first half.

It's why stats like completion percentage really only matter over the breadth of a season, or at least a significant amount of it.

^ This. When almost half of your throws come from a 2 minute drill, it's stupid to "analyze" anything from it.

It's probably because he's a Christian. After all, they don't count any other quarterback's spikes as incompletions.

We're through the looking glass here, people.

You needed to make a thread to complain about what ESPN said about Tebow's completion percentage?

Besides the spike there was a reason his % was so low, because he threw a number of terrible passes. Hopefully he can fix it or he will be watching a rookie start next year.

Why does anyone care about **** like this?

I hope everyone keeps trashing and underestimating Tebow. Fuel him. Go ahead.

To my knowledge spikes do count as an incomplete pass but 2-point attempts do not since they are not timed plays.

Oh, right. That doesnt count with their agenda. Oh wait, BSPN doesnt have an agenda.
In a normal circumstances, it is such a small % of spiking the ball compared to all the attempts during a game. If someone wants to get technical, they can eliminate (or separate) spiking (in baseball it is called intentional walk) and obvious dropped passes are considered errors (like baseball).
As a fan, consider one dropped ball with one hell of a catch from Lloyd and it is a wash.

As for Bradford, I knew he would struggle in 2011 not because he was a rookie but look who is the Rams Offensive Coordinator!

With Tebow's really small sample size of 10 passes, it would sort of make sense to mention why some of his incompletions were incompletions.

Here are the 6 incompletions...

#1 Deep pass on left sideline to Lloyd. This play was initially called a completion, but officials conferred and reversed it, Lloyd juggled as he was catching it going out of bounds. Verdict: Not a bad throw

#2 Deep pass over the middle to Decker. This was the play where Tebow had to roll left and buy time. Decker broke wide open and Tebow's pass was overthrown and too much to Decker's right. Verdict: Not a bad throw under the circumstances (Orton would have either thrown it away or taken a sack)

#3 Incomplete to short left to Rosario. If I remember correctly, this pass was badly overthrown and wide of Rosario who was a little bit open for a short pass. Verdict: Bad pass

#4 Incomplete middle short to Willis. If I remember this one correctly, Willis was open for 1st down yardage, but Willis couldn't make the catch as ball landed at his feet. Verdict: You know the old adage... if it hits your hands, you gotta catch it.

#5 Incomplete pass as Tebow spikes ball to stop clock. Verdict: Objective analysts should make mention of play when talking about Tebow's incompletion %.

#6 Incomplete pass deep right to Willis in endzone. Willis was PI'd out of bounds while ball was in air. This was a perfect throw, and if Willis was not PI'd, he likely catches the pass for game winning touchdown. Verdict: Tebow scrambles and buys time, Tebow is nearly sacked as he gets away from rushing SD defender, and throws a near-perfect pass to Willis, who is trying to comeback to middle of endzone (while being interfered) to make catch. Not Tebow's fault this was incomplete, in fact, this play moreso than any other play demonstrated what Tebow can do to try to win games as a Bronco.

He was pretty open, not sure how he under threw it so bad. I think it was just due to him being rusty/a little gittery.

Tebow just throws low a lot. McGruder will tell you he's trying to avoid interceptions, but in reality it's just a problem he's always had, even in College.
