No matter what you or ESPN analyst Merril Hoge say about Tim Tebow’s lack of ability to play quarterback in the NFL, he believes that he can be a starting QB and win.
During an interview with The Denver Post Tebow said the criticism over his NFL potential was unwarranted.
“I’m trying to insulate myself from what people in the media are saying, but I’ve seen some of it, and it hurts because it’s coming from people who haven’t seen me practice, haven’t seen me play, haven’t seen what I can do,” he said. “I did an interview the other day with someone on the NFL Network who said last year I’d never play a down in the NFL. He was wrong.
“Others who say I won’t make it are wrong. They don’t know what I’m capable of and what’s inside me. My family and my friends have been bothered by what’s gone on, and I tell them to pay no attention to it. I’m relying as always on my faith.”
I like Tim Tebow. He is a hard worker and has the passion and desire to win. I’m a Georgia Bulldog fan so I’ve witnessed him destroying my bulldogs for four years.
But that was college. The NFL is on another level.
I want to see him succeed in the NFL, but it’s going to take a lot of work for him to get to that level. And Tim just isn’t ready to be a starting quarterback in the NFL.
It takes more than just having the heart, the will and desire to win.
If you want a motivational speaker for your team then Tim Tebow is your guy. If you want a quarterback that has the skill set to play QB and win then Tebow isn’t your guy.
To be an elite QB in the NFL you have to be accurate on your throws. You can’t under throw or over throw your receivers.
Maybe on day he will finally get it. But right now, he just doesn’t have it.
