atripes Posted August 28, 2011 Share Posted August 28, 2011 (edited) There has been a lot of talk lately about Tebow not even making the Broncos roster this season. It seems that the decision has already been made to make Brady Quinn the #2 QB. Why? I keep hearing the critics saying how bad Tebow is playing, but every preseason game has has played fairly well (minus the one game where he was only allowed to throw 2 passes).Everything I have ever seen of Quinn is that he is fairly mediocre and that his potential is pretty much tapped out being relegated to a #3 QB for a few years after his abysmal attempt at starting in Cleveland. Am I missing something?Preseason stats are blow:Tebow13 of 20 for 65% completion percentage194 yards, 9.7 ypa0 TD, 0 INT96.667 QB ratingAlso adds 7 rushes for 47 yardsQuinn:18 of 30 for 60% completion percentage250 yards, 8.3 ypa2 TD, 1 INT95.138 QB rating0 Yards rushingSo Tebow has a better QB rating, higher completion percentage, a better YPA, and adds the dimension of mobility. Am I missing something here or do all of the commentators just really dislike Tim Tebow for some unknown reason all of a sudden?I understand if you don't feel he will be a successful NFL QB, that's is a perfectly debatable topic. However, what isnt a debatable topic is Brady Quinn's potential, at least with Tim you have a lot of untapped potential. Brady has already had his turn at a starting job in the NFL and failed MISERABLY. Even if their potential was the same, it seems to me that Tebow is winning the preseason contest anyways....
