Default Tim Tebow # 19 on all time NFL any Era team (ahead of Peyton Manning)

Tim Tebow is number 19 on the NFL any era team. Meaning he would be good in any Era in the NFL. Its always good to see Tebow on a list with Ed Reed. Dont think Cutler would be on this list:

JAMES LOFTON: He's totally a throwback. When you talk about guys who could play in any era, he could play in any era. It may not be quarterback. He might have been a linebacker, a running back. He might have been a tight end. He's big enough that, if you take him back to the '50s, he could have been an offensive lineman. His physical skill set is something you want in a football player in any era. He's big, he's fast, he's tough, he'll take a hit, he'll deliver punishment. Tim Tebow, maybe he's not a quarterback in the '60s, maybe he's a defensive tackle. But Tim Tebow's going to come out, and he's going to be a winner. And I think that's what people are drawn to.



FLOYD LITTLE: He might not be the greatest quarterback, but he could play at any position you want him to play at. He's a guy I'd like to play with if I was still playing. He's a winner, he's mobile, strong, and gets the job done regardless, whether he's blocking, throwing, running or just fooling you. He finds a way to win, and people need to recognize that. A 'W' is a 'W' and it doesn't matter how you get it. If you win ugly, it's still a 'W.' Mechanics don't play the game, people do.



LARRY CSONKA: I'm picking Tim Tebow, who's a controversial choice. But that kid, a lot of people say he's not a pure passing QB. But neither was Fran Tarkenton. You can take Tebow and compare him to a lot of quarterbacks over the years, great QBs who could roll out and be a threat. When it comes down to it, I think he can throw the long ball, maybe not consistently, but consistently enough to win. And in the final analysis, isn't that what matters? He's not going to statistically pass Dan Marino, but he may end up in a Super Bowl. ... He has a combination of things that come down to winning.



MIKE DITKA: When we won the 1963 championship with the Bears, our heaviest lineman was 255. Tebow is an athlete. It starts there and it may end up there, but he'll improve in the things you do as a quarterback. But if you're saying for a guy who purely loves to go out there and play the game of football, he loves it and he plays as good as he can. Some weeks it may not be good enough, but that's what he does. And the will is a powerful thing.

Yea poor Cutler wouldn't have been good in the 50s... He is so unlucky to have a strong throwing arm and the ability to play QB in the modern era. We are so lucky to have traded him for a QB that is best equipped to play alongside the Four Horsemen under Knute Rockne.
