David Says :

 I agree with Brandi that you should never let the media control the argument by comparing Tebow to back-ups. Tebow compares very well to the top 10 starters. Here are some examples.
Tebow scored 34 times in 13 plays and 15.5 games.
Wilson scored 26 times this year.
Brady scored 33 times this year.

A recent article said that Wilson was closer to Tebow than to Brady. But, the opposite is true. Brady is closer to Tebow than to Wilson.
Tebow scored 34 times in 13 situational plays and 15.5 games. In 2014, only 3 quarterbacks scored more times than Tebow’s 34.

Wilson scored 26 times
Brady scored 33 times
Tebow scored 34 times
His 34 scores would rank 2nd in 2010 for total scores.
2010 http://www.nfl.com/stats/categorystats?seasonType=REG&d-447263-n=1&d-447263-o=2&d-447263-p=1&d-447263-s=PASSING_TOUCHDOWNS&tabSeq=0&season=2010&experience&Submit=Go&archive=true&conference=null&statisticCategory=PASSING&qualified=false

There is one thing about Tebow’s passing game that sets him apart from other QBs. He throws longer passes than all of them.
Tebow, in his first 16 games over two seasons, threw 19 TDs in 177 pass completions for 2699 yards. Earlier this year, Luck was leading the league with 19 TDs in 199 completions for 2331 yards. Luck averaged 11.7 yards per catch and Tebow averaged 15.3 yards per catch.
Tebow averaged a TD every 9.3 completions which would place him 2nd behind Aaron Rodgers for TDs per completion among the 2011 starters. Rodgers averaged a TD every 7.6 completions, a career best. Brees would be third averaging a TD every 10.1 completions. Tebow averaged 15.3 yards per completion which is higher than all of the starters in 2011. He would place 8th for TDs per pass attempt which factors in the completion percentage.
Tebow had the lowest completion percentage in the NFL and, when compared to the 2011 starters, it only lowered him to 8th for TDs per pass attempt because he was throwing the ball farther than everybody and scored more often per catch than everybody except Aaron Rodgers.
ALL of the QBs in 2011 that threw 20 or 21 TDs also needed over 500 pass attempts to do it. Tebow threw 19 TDs in 374 attempts. Not surprisingly, he set records in the playoffs for throwing long passes. And he has run for 15 scores and 1052 yards.
In their first 16 games,
Tebow threw 19 TDs in 374 attempts with 9 interceptions with 47.3%
Brady threw 18 TDs in 483 attempts with 13 interceptions with 63.9% and won the superbowl in 2001.
How did Tebow score more TDs with fewer interceptions in 109 fewer pass attempts?
Brady averaged 10.98 yards per completion and Tebow averaged 15.3 yards per completion. Tebow threw it farther with greater accuracy and scored more often per catch. He threw short passes in NY with a 75% completion percentage. The short passers have great pass percentages. The long passers score more TDs with fewer interceptions. With the new rules that prevent illegal contact, Tebow would be scoring even more with the long pass.

    To me there’s one thing Tim’s Fans should remember. Media influence is largely a myth. Sports Media influence is almost entirely a myth.

    Tim was cut by the Jets. His popularity went up completely befuddling NFL Media. The campaign to level set Football Fans with ignore your own eyes and believe our experts…Tim Tebow doesn’t have the goods to be an NFL Quarterback…totally backfired. A higher percentage of the population in general, Football Fans and even NFL Fans specifically are convinced that Tim Tebow should be a Starting NFL QB than did when he actually was a Starting NFL QB.

    I have absolutely no idea why what the Media…and anyone who wants to try to shoplift street cred by agreeing with something Media says that they already agreed with anyway…has an image of influencing Sports Fans or why anyone gets worked up about it.

    Here’s what it all seems to work out like. Fans expect Sports Media to be a check against the efforts by Sports Leagues and Teams to control the Sports. When they don’t, when they begin to look like an extension of the League and Team PR Organizations, the Sports Media’s influence actually becomes a reverse barometer. If the Media likes it, the Fans hate it. If the Media hates it, the Fans like it.

    Has finally agreeing with the Fans on the NFL’s Culture Issues begun to buy the Media a little cred with the Fans? I’m not so sure. I think it’s mostly Fans are wondering why it took them so long.

    But THAT is the NFL Media. There’s not much point in getting worked up about them for the simple reasons. Most Football Fans couldn’t care less what the Media thinks or says about much of anything.

    On Monday, September 16, 2013 at 2:32 PM, CBS Sports became the first that I’m aware of to announce a Rally at Everbank Field to bring Tim Tebow to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Every Media outlet knew about it because MANY had reporters and cameras there.

    But nobody else did, including the biggest Tim Tebow Fan Clubs and Forums who all, as far as I know, found out about it late Friday the 13th. That should have been the double clue it would become the Media and Anti-Tebow Groups symbol for how Tim’s Fans are nothing more than the tiny little group of “Religious zealots” staging their little 3:16 Protest passed off as a Rally.

    If I was running an Anti-Tebow Counter-Intelligence Operations, I couldn’t have come up with a better way to humiliate Tim, his Fans and push the agenda…Tebow in the NFL? WHY? All you’ll get is these type of crazies driving you nuts and everyone else will stay away.

    Tim’s Fans have played the Media entirely wrong in almost every way possible all along.

    I don’t know if it’s too late to do anything about it now. BUT, there is that thing…the vast majority of Football Fans absolutely DO NOT agree with either NFL Media self-absorbed zealots or the Anti-Tebow fanatics.

    They said most people watched the SB for the commercials and that is why the ratings are SO HIGH! So much for the Not For Long League!

      An article by The Atlantic on the wildly crazy growth of Cricket in the US cited ESPN with there being 30 Million “Cricket Fans” in the US. This despite there having been only 30,000 who either Played or watched Cricket in 2006. Now, have we experienced a thousand-fold increase in the number of “Fans” of Cricket in this Country in less than a decade?

      I try to look closely at numbers. What actually makes them. BizAnalysts call someone not just a Fan but a “Loyal Fan” if they say they are are Very Interested in a Sport or League AND if they are only “Somewhat Interested.” If being “Somewhat Interested” in something makes you a “Loyal Fan”, what the heck constitutes just being a Regular Fan? Saying “NFL. Yeah I heard of them.”??

      To be listed as a “Viewer” of the Super Bowl, a person has to watch 6 Minutes. 6 Minutes. The composite number of “Viewers”, ie the average over the entire Broadcast is made up of how many people who tuned in to see Katy Perry and what she might be up to? The Commercials? Or just because it’s what you’re “supposed” to do? Take a look. Even more importantly, how many because any old excuse for a Party is any old excuse for a Party?

      NFL TV numbers show a HUGE and growing gap. A few Games that Viewers gravitate to, and all of the others they gravitate from. So we see bit Ratings Pops. But it masks that overall, people just aren’t as into it as they used to be. I don’t know what the NFL can do about it. The trend is moving so strongly. I really don’t know if it’s gone so far that even signing Tim Tebow won’t stop it. Maybe just give it a bump up that will begin trending down again once he’s out of the league…again.

        Brandi: True, T2 will save their ratings due to his immense popularity and that will finally be legit when he gets a legit chance in the NFL doing what he does best: “BEING A PRO QB”!!!! GO TEBOW!!!
