Default Tebow interview w/ Peter King

Yes, another Tim Tebow thread. This one though illustrates for me everything that I love about the guy behind center for us.

Quote:
I spoke with Tebow, who is the most polite interview in NFL history while at the same time spilling zero beans, after the game. I asked him if he felt what was going on around the country right now, with people from everywhere zoned in on his incredible, quirky, starry and winning run. "You know, I'm not sure,'' he said. "I know the Lord has blessed me and blessed our team. Some of what is said out there can be motivating to me. But every game is the opportunity for me to live my dream of being an NFL player. I think we'd all rather be ahead 15 or 20 in the fourth quarter. But the feel on the sideline, trusting each other and knowing we can do it every week, has been a special part of this team.''

"We feel it a little bit,'' Champ Bailey told me, "but the thing is, we're not caught up in it. We just do it. At crunch time, for some reason, and it's so hard to explain, nobody bats an eye. We're used to it. We love coming back.''

This game seemed different. Three or four times, Tebow threw over the Vikings' leaky (to put it mildly) cover-two zone, and he finished with a much better passing day (10 of 15 for 202 yards) than usual. "We had the opportunity to go downfield,'' he said. "I felt we did some good things in the passing game.''

Before I let Tebow go, I asked him if anyone after the game -- coaches, players, execs -- had said anything memorable to him. "Everybody was happy,'' he said, "but I'll tell you one thing that happened during the week that I remember ... ''

Good, I thought. John Fox, maybe, sidling up to him and saying something sportingly profound like, "Son, we're going to ride that left arm and those legs to the Super Bowl.''

" ... I had an opportunity to talk with a kid named Blake Appleton, from Florida, on Thursday. He's a leukemia patient who's just been moved to hospice. And after the game, when I was being interviewed on TV, I got to say his name. That's what I'm proud of today. I let him know people cared about him. I let him know God has a plan for him."

And that was the end of the Tebow interview. He had to rush to get on the bus to the airport. Except ...

"Have a good day, Mr. King. And God bless you."

If it was any other player I would roll my eyes. But this is Tebow, and it is genuine.

Sad that we live in a world that when people act good, say good things, people's first reaction is they are full of crap. I think it says a lot about what we have become. Not calling you out, I am the same way. Then when someone is really moral, honest, unselfish, it's almost like we get giddy when they are proven to be the opposite.

Him and Champ smell a chance to get into the playoffs. At their age who knows how many more they get.

Look out when Denver gets into postseason. They have a mix of hungry vets like Champ, Dawk, Goodman, DJ, Mcgahee mixed with a bunch of young players who don't know any better but to think they can win. I can only imagine how fired up players get when Dawk goes into one of his pregame rants. Just to feel that energy flow through my body one time would be something i would wish for if i had one. It must feel incredible to get that fired up.

Also now our defense good enough to where next yr, I think we can lure some FA to Denver easier then we could last 3-4 yrs. Dawk and Champ, with the young Miller, will be able to lure them over IMO.

Also I think other players are going to end up wanting to play with Tebow. He draws people to himself because he is such a special person.

We don't just have a good qb, a gamer with heart, we have a great person leading our team and IMO that can't be overlooked. It will help create a team again, full of players who love each other and will play hurt, play hard, every game, every play.

You are exactly right, it is sad. But refreshing to see the opposite for once

Default Anal-Lies this.....

Yep, Tebow,,,, just being Tim as usual.

I didin't want to start a whole-nother thread, so I'm putting this info here.
Those interested in some depth, read on.
I like longer quality posts instead of the 'serial posting' run-ons.
Those only interested in short fluff, just skip it.

Question: Why doesn't Tebow throw the ball more?

Answer: Because he doesn't call the plays, OC McCoy does, I assume with direction from HBC Fox in the game planning.

However, Tebow has proven throughout his entire career (HS/UF/Pro) that he CAN throw the ball effectively when asked to.

To this point imo, Tim's limitations have had more to do with his coaches and surrounding talent, than in his own abilities.
(we are all entitled to our own opinions, but the actual stats are NOT opinions)
================

Under the 'Just thinking' category:

#1 - Tim Tebow -- 10 TD's, 1 Int, --- 10 to 1 TD/Int Ratio (after only 10 NFL starts)
#2 - Aaron Rogers - 39 TD's, 5 Ints, - 7.8 to 1 TD/Int Ratio (125.3 PER due to # of passes & yds)

TD's per Attempt:
Rogers - 39 of 408, 1 TD per 10.5 Attps.
Tebow - 10 of 158, 1 TD per 15.8 Attp's.
(Schaub - 15 of 292, 1 TD per 19.5 Attp's)

Int's per Attempt:
Rogers - 5 of 408, 1 Int per 82 Attp's.
Tebow - 1 of 158, 1 Int per 158 Attp's.
(Schaub - 6 of 292, 1 Int per 48.7 Attp's)
----------------------

To NFL.com's Elliot Harrison, Tebow's passing equates to ", horrifically inaccurate throws."
Well, I'm calling BS on his ignorant claims. So much for that so-called 'Analyst.'
Apparently you don't have to review any actual game stats & 'think' before you 'anal-lies' the players.
Note: Harrison says that Schaub had "mostly just solid quarterback play" and Schaub limited costly mistakes."
Schaub Passing:
6 Ints on 292 Attp's, 1 Int per 48.7 Attp's.
15 TD's on 292 Attps, 1 TD per 19.5 Attp's.
Schaub completes about 13 more passes per 100 thrown (comp %), than Tebow.
But he throws about 25% less TD's and 3+ times more interceptions than the "horribly inaccurate" Tebow.

* A young QB's biggest mistake is to turn the ball over, (see the Fox > Clausen 2010 pick).

There have been 69 NFL QB's to take a snap in 2011 per ESPN.com QB Stat's.
Tebow is currently Ranked at #21 of those 69 listed in PER, after having just 10 NFL starts.
Tim Tebow ------ 1,054 yds, 10 TD's 1 Int, 87.9 PER <---<< (but he's not 1st Rnd quality huh?)
> The NFL QB PE-Rating has a numbers quirk, you had to throw at least 14 passes per game or they choose to
not list you in their QB rankings.

Tim Tebow ------ 1,054 yds, 10 TD's -- 1 Int, 87.9 PER (plus 3 TD's to 2 LPF's, + NFL BEST 5.7 ypc)

Matt Moore ------- 1,769 yds, 11 TD's, 5 Ints, 87.6 PER
Jay Cutler --------- 2,319 yds, 14 TD's, 7 Ints, 85.7 PER
Matt Ryan --------- 3,154 yds, 21 TD's,12 Ints, 85.2 PER
Jason Campbell ---- 1,170 yds, 8 TD's, 4 Ints, 84.2 PER
sCam Newton ----- 3,297 yds, 26 TD's, 14 Ints, 82.4 PER
Andy Dalton ------- 2,644 yds, 18 TD's,12 Ints, 81.6 PER
Mark Sanchez ----- 2,678 yds, 22 TD's,11 Ints, 81.1 PER
Kevin Kolb --------- 1,953 yds, 9 TD's, 8 Ints, 81.0 PER
* Philip Rivers ------ 3,211 yds, 17 TD's, 17 Ints, 80.8 PER
* Michael Vick ----- 2,193 yds, 11 TD's, 11 Ints, 79.8 PER
Joe Flacco -------- 2,895 yds, 14 TD's, 8 Ints, 78.3 PER
Matt Cassel ------- 1,713 yds, 10 TD's, 9 Ints, 76.6 PER
Christian Ponder --- 1,522 yds, 9 TD's, 8 Ints, 76.6 PER
** Jackson Tarvaris - 2,255 yds, 11 TD's, 12 Ints, 76.1 PER
** Josh Freeman ---- 2,715 yds, 14 TD's, 16 Ints, 74.6 PER
================

Or how about just the Top 4 QB's taken in the 2010 Draft:

Tim Tebow --- 1,054 yds, 13 TD's, 1 Int, 87.9 PER <---<< (not 1st Rnd quality huh?)
Colt McCoy ---- 2,524 yds, 14 TD's, 9 Ints, 76.9 PER
Sam Bradford - 1,971 yds, 6 TD's, 5 Ints, 72.3 PER (#1 Draft Pick - An NFL talent eval's sure thing)
Jimmy Clausen - Remains Benched by Panthers (3 TD's, 9 Ints)

And IF you need to compare Tim to the best QB's in the NFL, then please do so using
their FIRST 10 NFL STARTS for your comparisons, not their SB seasons.

PS

Tebow wins 3rd straight GMC 'Moment of the Week.'
Tebow gets the Inaugural Cover of the New NFL Magizine.
While the Denver Broncos TEAM/HBC/FO benefits from ALL of Tim's positive exposure.

PSS
Harvard statheads hope to bring math, logic to Tebow 'miracles.'
"A Statistical Analysis of the Miracles of Tim Tebow." by The Harvard Sports Analysis Collective
It was done on the Broncos first 10 games, 1-4 Orton, compared to 4-1 Tebow.
The HSAC believes Tebow and the Broncos are on borrowed time.
“The likelihood of Tim Tebow sustaining his current winning percentage looks rather dire," the group wrote.

Yep, those 'eggheads' have Tebow and the Broncos all figured out.
Except that Denver is now 6-1 under Tebow,,,,, DOH! <---<< eggheads with sore nutts....

I think we just tend to cast doubt on those who constantly bring up the acts of charity that they participate in, as it usually reeks of hubris. Tebow manages to really convey how excited he is about that stuff, however, and really comes across as genuine. That is a rare skill.

Sorry he can't hear you. He is too busy following Tebow in a freakish and scary way that usually leads to him wearing lipstick and a restraining order.

I understand what you are saying but I don't think it is a skill. I believe it is what comes out of an overflowing heart full of the love of God from a person who has an intimate relationship with his creator. It is as natural as every breath Tim breathes. This is difficult for many to understand.

My wife prays for Tim not just to be a successful QB but to stand strong in the midst of the excessive criticism he faces daily. We are all but flesh and blood, weak against temptation. Tim is swimming in the midst of pirahnas waiting for a scratch. We see it in the media and on this site. Regardless how his NFL career plays out, Tim Tebow will be a success in whatever he puts his hand to do.
