Tebow's Performance Against Lions = Pathetic
A week after putting together a phenomenal fourth quarter comeback win against the Miami Dolphins, Tebow couldn't do anything right against the Detroit Lions Sunday. Tebow was 18-of-39 passing for 151 yards, one touchdown and one interception. That all equaled a quarterback rating of 56.8. He was inaccurate, he made bad decisions and it was quite frankly painful to watch. Everything anybody criticized Tebow for before came to light Sunday. Tebow did run for 63 yards on 10 carries, which at times was necessary because the Lions defense was terrorizing him all afternoon.
The fact of the matter is that Tebow will never be an elite NFL quarterback, but that doesn't mean that he can't win. Denver was outmatched in almost every aspect Sunday. The defense couldn't stop Matt Stafford and the Lions high powered offense and the Broncos offensive line couldn't stop the menacing Lions defense.
Before Tebow is crucified for being a terrible quarterback, the facts must first be analyzed. The Broncos have a lot of work to do if they are going to be a true competitive football team. Tebow is a young quarterback with little offensive talent around him. Until some playmakers are brought into the Broncos offense, the team will struggle. Sure Tebow will struggle at times, but so did Kyle Orton when he was in there. The truth is that Tebow gives the Broncos the best chance at winning right now with the current personnel the Broncos have.
