The Case for Tim Tebow, NFL Quarterback

Cold, Hard Football Facts for Jun 11, 2013
 By Kerry J. Byrne

Cold, Hard Football Facts vestal virgin (@footballfacts)

The Cold, Hard Football Facts love Tim Tebow not because we suffer the weakness of human emotion. We don’t.

A pile of used Buffalo wing bones feels more emotion than we do.

Instead, we love Tebow because he’s a fascinating statistical storyline, a cultural lightning rod and a seemingly too-good-to-be-true off-field persona.

But mostly we love the fact that he so clearly challenges tired old conventional NFL wisdom and so routinely embarrasses the so-called pigskin “pundits” who openly mock him and refuse to give him a legit shot.

The reality is that Tebow deserves a shot to play quarterback in the NFL. He does not deserve that shot in New England.  He’ll never be good enough to replace Tom Brady. But few quarterbacks in history would be.

But he does deserve a shot to play the position even if we have little confidence that shot will ever come.

Tebow is certainly a better more productive QB than half the schmucks allowed to lead NFL teams today.

He should get that shot … somewhere. Here’s the case for Tim Tebow, NFL quarterback:

ONE – Tebow has started just 16 NFL games

People mock Tebow’s passing capabilities. He’s never going to throw with the pinpoint accuracy of Drew Brees or Peyton Manning.

But Tebow’s critics seem to forget that he is still a very inexperienced quarterback. Yes, he’s entering his fourth NFL season – assuming he makes the New England roster or any other roster for that matter.

But he’s started just 16 games in those previous three seasons. Essentially, he has just one year of experience under his belt. Few quarterbacks look like big-time players after just 16 NFL games.

Hello, Mark Sanchez is a laughingstock who clearly can’t play in the NFL. He posted a dismal 55.3 Real QB Rating in 2012. Yet he’s been given 68 starts to prove he can’t play. And Sanchez’s production is still light years behind what Tebow has shown in his limited time on the field.

Hell, Peyton Manning didn’t look like a big-time player after just 16 NFL games, either. Manning, in his first 16 starts, threw 28 INT, completed just 56.7 percent of his passes and posted a fairly dismal 71.2 passer rating for the 3-13 Colts.

Not saying that Tebow is Peyton Manning. He’s not. He never will be. But Peyton Manning wasn’t Peyton Manning after 16 NFL games, either.

Tebow has something in common with Indy’s newest QB phenom, by the way: Tebow led the most inaccurate passing team in the NFL in 2011, the Denver Broncos. Andrew Luck led the most inaccurate passing team in the NFL in 2012.

TWO – Tebow wins games

Despite that inexperience, Tebow’s teams have gone 8-6 in the regular season and 1-1 in the postseason. That’s 9-7, for those of you keeping score at home.

The history of the NFL is littered with great quarterbacks who failed to win nine of their first 16 starts.

The reality is that, in the short time we’ve seen him play, Tebow has proven that he makes his team better and the players around him better. That ability is the single most important factor in sports, and especially in a team game like football, and most especially for the QB position, which is judged by wins and losses.

To discount that ability is to discount the sole purpose for playing sports, period.

THREE – Tebow won games with a bad team and very bad defense

Tebow not only won in 2011 with the Denver Broncos, he won with a very bad Broncos team. Denver went 4-12 in 2010 and kicked off the 2011 season with a 1-4 record.

That’s a 5-16 team, for those of you keeping score at home.

Enter Tim Tebow.

That awful 5-16 team suddenly went 7-1 in its first eight games with Tebow at starter, reached the playoffs and knocked off the NFL’s best defense from Pittsburgh in the wildcard round before finally falling apart in the divisional round at New England.

The anti-Tebow crowd tells us that the Denver defense carried the Broncos to the playoffs in 2011.

The anti-Tebow crowd is filled with idiots, hucksters, transients and railroad bums.

The 2011 Broncos finished the year No. 24 in scoring defense and surrendered 40 or more points in four of Tebow’s 13 starts that season, including three of his last five. Tom Brady, Johnny Unitas and Joe Montana don’t win games when their defense surrenders 40+ points. It’s unreasonable to expect Tebow to win those games, either.

The 2011 Broncos also finished the year No. 28 in Defensive Passer Rating (93.12), a number which usually precludes teams from reaching the playoffs, and intercepted just nine passes all season. In fact, only two teams in the history of the NFL reached the playoffs with a Defensive Passer Rating worse than the one Tebow was paired with in 2011.

It was quite literally something close to a statistical miracle that the 2011 Broncos reached the playoffs with that defense.

By the way, it’s worth noting that Tebow carried the Broncos as far into the playoffs in 2011 as Peyton Manning did in 2012.

Just sayin’.

FOUR – Tebow has a cannon

It may not be an accurate cannon, at least we haven’t seen accuracy yet in the NFL. But Tebow’s arm is a cannon just the same.

The world saw that cannon in Denver’s win over Pittsburgh in the 2011 wildcard playoffs.

Tebow set not one but two postseason NFL records that day (min. 20 attempts): his average of 15.05 yards per pass attempts was the best in NFL history; so, too, was his 31.6 yards per completion.

You don’t produce the most explosive passing day in NFL postseason history, against the NFL’s No. 1 defense that season, without a cannon for an arm.

The raw talent is certainly there to make big plays.

FIVE – Tebow is far more statistically proficient than he’s given credit for.

The average NFL fan or analyst judges a quarterback merely by his passing abilities. And we understand why: NFL games are won and lost almost exclusively by a QB’s ability to pass the football efficiently.

In fact, we’ve written about this phenomenon incessantly for years.

But Tebow clearly plays a different game: padding often inefficient days passing the football with highly efficient performances running the ball, while generally keeping turnovers at a very low rate.

His 2.7 percent turnover rate (15 in 559 touches) is not only good, it’s one of the best in the history of football. CHFF’s Captain Comeback looked at the career turnover rate of every QB in NFL history back in November.

Tebow doesn’t yet qualify for the list (min. 1,500 attempts). But among qualifiers, only Aaron Rodgers was better at protecting the football.

Tebow also rates much higher than just his passing numbers would indicate if you look at him through the prism of CHFF Real QB Rating, which measures all aspects of QB play, not just passing.

Tebow’s career Real QB Rating of 81.2 would have been good enough for 12th in the NFL last year – better than the Real QB Rating of every single team that fired a coach or GM.

Keep in mind that Real QB Rating may be the most important stat in football: Teams that won the Real QB Rating battle went 218-37 (.855) in 2012, consistent with year-after-year results. No stat in football has a higher “Correlation to Victory.”

Put another way: Tebow is better than anyone realizes in the single most important stat in football, other than final score.

SIX – Tebow is the greatest QB in SEC history; and maybe the greatest player in college football history.

We all know that great college success does not always translate to pro success. But we do know that the SEC is the best, most competitive conference in all of college football.

Year after year, the SEC wins the national championship and sends more players to the NFL than any conference in football. Hell, 1 of 4 picks in the 2013 NFL draft came straight from the 14 teams of the SEC alone.

And among all that talent, Tebow is the greatest QB in the history of the SEC. And not because he was a great runner. Tebow was, at the time he left the SEC, the highest rated passer in the history of the conference.

Here’s how Tebow’s college production, playing in the same tough SEC, stacked up against that of Peyton Manning




























 * Using the NFL formula for passer rating, not the college formula

Tebow was more accurate, got the ball downfield better, was more likely to throw touchdowns and less likely to throw INTs than Peyton Manning himself.

Tebow was, in other words, a much better college passer than Peyton Manning.

And it’s not like Manning was surrounded by chump talent at Tennessee. Three of his wide receivers went in the first round of the NFL draft and the Volunteers fielded enough talent around him on both sides of the ball to win the national title the year after Manning left.

Tebow, meanwhile, was a key player on two national title teams, the undisputed leader of one of them, won one Heisman trophy and nearly won a second. Hell, some say he’s the greatest college football player of all time.

The fact that so few are willing to give arguably the greatest player in college history a legit shot to play QB in the NFL says more about the close mindedness and tired old orthodoxy of the NFL than it does about Tebow or his talent.


Awesome news Tebow Fans….Report: Patriots signing Tim Tebow !




The New England Patriots are expected to sign quarterback Tim Tebow and have him in minicamp by Tuesday, according to ESPN.

Tebow spent last season with the New York Jets, but only saw limited action. He finished the season with just eight passing attempts for 39 yards and zero touchdowns, and the Jets cut him on April 29.

As weeks went by with Tebow still unemployed, it seemed possible he may never play in the NFL again. Yahoo! Sports reported in May that New England head coach Bill Belichick did not like Tebow and that he said there was “no chance” of Tebow coming to the Patriots.

Belichick later refuted that report, and told that he wouldn’t rule out the team signing Tebow.

“I wouldn’t get into the probability of us pursuing any free agent,” Belichick said. “Every single player has strengths and weaknesses but regardless of that, for anyone to have represented that is the way I feel about Tim Tebow is completely untrue, baseless and irresponsible. It is unfortunate that something so inaccurate was reported.”

The Patriots’ signing of Tebow will reunite him with Josh McDaniels, New England’s offensive coordinator and former head coach of Tebow with the Denver Broncos.

McDaniels and the Broncos drafted Tebow in the first round of the 2010 NFL draft, and made him the full-time starter in 2011. Tebow led the Broncos to the playoffs and a first-round upset of the Pittsburgh Steelers after an 80-yard game-winning touchdown pass in overtime.

The Patriots will have Tebow study with the team’s tight ends, according to’s Mike Freeman. “Tebow won’t exclusively study TE. But he’s also not just going to study QB,” Freeman tweeted.

The Patriots have a history of using versatile players at multiple positions. Mike Vrabel was used as both a linebacker and tight end, while Troy Brown saw time as a wide receiver and defensive back.

Belichick also has shown a willingness to bring in players who had been off-field distractions in the past. Among the players he acquired that few other teams were willing to: Randy Moss, Chad Johnson (known as Chad Ochocinco at the time), Corey Dillon, Aqib Talib, Albert Haynesworth and Bryan Cox.

The Patriots have not officially announced the signing of Tebow, but did announce that they cut backup quarterback Mike Kafka. New England’s quarterback depth chart also includes Ryan Mallett, who attempted just four passes last season.

16 Rules for Success in Business and Life in General

By Jp Outhouse in JP’s Investment Round Table (Files) Facebook

Get and stay out of your comfort zone.
I believe that not much happens of any significance when we’re in our comfort zone. I hear people say, “But I’m concerned about security.” My response to that is simple: “Security is for cadavers.”


Never give up.
Almost nothing works the first time it’s attempted. Just because what you’re doing does not seem to be working, doesn’t mean it won’t work. It just means that it might not work the way you’re doing it. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it, and you wouldn’t have an opportunity.


When you’re ready to quit, you’re closer than you think.
There’s an old Chinese saying that I just love, and I believe it is so true. It goes like this: “The temptation to quit will be greatest just before you are about to succeed.”


With regard to whatever worries you, not only accept the worst thing that could happen, but make it a point to quantify what the worst thing could be.
Very seldom will the worst consequence be anywhere near as bad as a cloud of “undefined consequences.” My father would tell me early on, when I was struggling and losing my shirt trying to get Parsons Technology going, “Well, Robert, if it doesn’t work, they can’t eat you.”


Focus on what you want to have happen.
Remember that old saying, “As you think, so shall you be.”


Take things a day at a time.
No matter how difficult your situation is, you can get through it if you don’t look too far into the future, and focus on the present moment. You can get through anything one day at a time.


Always be moving forward.
Never stop investing. Never stop improving. Never stop doing something new. The moment you stop improving your organization, it starts to die. Make it your goal to be better each and every day, in some small way. Remember the Japanese concept of Kaizen. Small daily improvements eventually result in huge advantages.


Be quick to decide.
Remember what General George S. Patton said: “A good plan violently executed today is far and away better than a perfect plan tomorrow.”


Measure everything of significance.
I swear this is true. Anything that is measured and watched, improves.


Anything that is not managed will deteriorate.
If you want to uncover problems you don’t know about, take a few moments and look closely at the areas you haven’t examined for a while. I guarantee you problems will be there.


Pay attention to your competitors, but pay more attention to what you’re doing.
When you look at your competitors, remember that everything looks perfect at a distance. Even the planet Earth, if you get far enough into space, looks like a peaceful place.


Never let anybody push you around.
In our society, with our laws and even playing field, you have just as much right to what you’re doing as anyone else, provided that what you’re doing is legal.


Never expect life to be fair.
Life isn’t fair. You make your own breaks. You’ll be doing good if the only meaning fair has to you, is something that you pay when you get on a bus (i.e., fare).


Solve your own problems.
You’ll find that by coming up with your own solutions, you’ll develop a competitive edge. Masura Ibuka, the co-founder of SONY, said it best: “You never succeed in technology, business, or anything by following the others.” There’s also an old saying that I remind myself of frequently. It goes like this: “A wise man keeps his own counsel.”


Don’t take yourself too seriously.
Lighten up. Often, at least half of what we accomplish is due to luck. None of us are in control as much as we like to think we are.


There’s always a reason to smile.
Find it. After all, you’re really lucky just to be alive. Life is short. More and more, I agree with my little brother. He always reminds me: “We’re not here for a long time, we’re here for a good time!”

News Alert, Jeremy Lin Out for Rest of Regular Season With Knee Injury !

Breaking News Alert

Jeremy Lin Out for Rest of Regular Season With Knee Injury

Jeremy Lin’s basketball season has come to an abrupt and untimely end, because of a knee injury that will require surgery.

Lin, the Knicks’ point guard, has a small, chronic meniscal tear in his left knee, the Knicks announced Saturday night. He will undergo arthroscopic surgery and is expected to miss six weeks, wiping out the rest of the regular season and possibly the first round of the playoffs, assuming the Knicks make it.

“It is a big blow,” Coach Mike Woodson said before the Knicks’ home game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. “He was starting to come as a player.”

Lin’s injury is the second devastating hit the Knicks have taken in the last week. Amar’e Stoudemire, their starting power forward, is out with a bulging disk in his lower back; he also could miss the rest of the regular season.

The revelation of Lin’s injury came a week after he initially complained of soreness in the knee, in a March 24 victory over Detroit. A magnetic resonance imaging examination, performed Monday, showed what the team called a small, chronic tear — meaning the injury had been present for some time.

Lin and team officials had hoped to delay surgery until after the season, but the knee did not sufficiently respond to treatment over the course of the week. After testing it once more Saturday morning, Lin opted for immediate surgery.

“I can’t really do much, can’t really cut or jump,” Lin said at a news conference. “So it’s pretty clear that I won’t be able to help the team unless I get this fixed right now. It’s disappointing for me. It’s hard to watch the games. And I think I want to be out there, obviously, more than anything, to help the team.”

The injury marks a somber epilogue to a story that captivated much of the world and launched a movement called Linsanity. Lin — 23 years old, undrafted and largely unknown — erupted for 25 points in a Feb. 4 victory over the Nets, then strung together a series of fantastic performances, each more spectacular than the last. The Knicks won seven straight games with Lin running the offense, a streak that saved their season.

Lin, the American-born son of Taiwanese immigrants, is the N.B.A.’s only Asian-American and is wildly popular here and in China. His jersey, which was not even available two months ago, is among the league’s top sellers.

With Lin out, the veteran Baron Davis will finish the season as the Knicks’ starting point guard. Davis, who turns 33 this month, has his own health concerns. He is recovering from a herniated disk and a recent hamstring strain. He will be backed up by the 33-year-old Mike Bibby and the rookie Iman Shumpert.

“We got to go on,” Woodson said.

Lin will be a restricted free agent this summer. Under N.B.A. rules, no team will be allowed to offer more than the average salary, about $5 million, and the Knicks will have the right to match any offer. Lin said he saw his future in New York.

“It’s been an unbelievable journey,” he said. “I would love to keep this team together as long as we can, everybody, top to bottom.”

Imagine all the Super Antioxidant Properties in one Drink.!!!

Growing up playing all sports you can name in Florida, Baseball, Football  Track & Field,Tennis,Golf, Swim Team, Horse Barrel competing and yes not to forget Surfing and water Skiing…I did them, this is why I have all ways looked to putting good foods into my body as an Adult to keep my body on the fighting edge of attacks against known bad & harmful things that can ruin our physical day..and I have found it in 13

I spend a lot on Vitamins, Supplement Drinks and so on..but this is the best I have come across in my quest to keep in shape internally as well externally..


These Fruits contains a combination of thirteen fruits that supply a wide range of polyphenols, flavonoids and other powerful antioxidants in addition to resveratrol. The thirteen ‘super’ fruits included in our powerful formulation have recently been recognized for their potent antioxidant properties.


Resveratrol is found in the skin of red grapes and is the component responsible for the heart benefits that come with drinking red wine. Each 2 ounce serving of Jusuru Life Blend provides as much resveratrol as in four full bottles of wine.

s derived from thirteen different super fruits.

Dr Oz reports on how Resveratrol is thought to stimulate anti-aging enzyme called sirituin.


Ever wonder why the French live healthier lives despite having a diet high in saturated fats?

That’s the French paradox and it’s been the topic of the most reputable research labs. Interestingly enough, drinking red wine may play a key part in the answer. Recent studies demonstrate that caloric restriction stimulates a gene in our bodies which reduces the effects of aging. Among thousands of compounds tested, resveratrol demonstrated the unique ability to mimic the same benefits.


What is Resveratrol?

Resveratrol is a plant-dervied compound called phytoalexin (phyto- meaning ‘plant’, -alexin meaning ‘ward off’ or ‘to protect’), which is a chemical substance produced by plants as a defense against infection by pathogenic microorganisms such as fungi. As found in the skin of red grapes and a constituent of red wine, resveratrol is implicated in ‘the French paradox’, the low incidence of obesity and cardiovascular diseases in the French people despite their high-calorie diets.

Why is red wine thought to be healthier than white?

Red wine contains much higher concentration of resveratrol than white wine. In producing red wine, the skins and seeds are used, while the juice is the main material used to produce white wine.

How much resveratrol is in Jusuru Life Blend™?

One serving size (2 oz) contains the same amount of resveratrol as in two full bottles of red wine.

What are the benefits of taking a resveratrol supplement?

Resveratrol is one of the most recognized and widely studied compounds due to its potential roles in promoting longevity and in chemoprevention. Studies revealed a number of health-promoting properties such as anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and beneficial cardiovascular effects.

Resveratrol demonstrated a striking overlap in terms of gene expression with calorie restriction in the heart, muscle, and brain. Both dietary interventions inhibited the expression of similar profile of genes associated with heart and skeletal muscle aging. Furthermore, resveratrol produced similar effects to calorie restriction in insulin mediated glucose uptake in the muscle. The retardation of aging parameters was mediated through alterations in chromatin structure and transcription.

Yesterday, a few hours after the Nobel Prize for Literature had been awarded to Tomas Transtromer, I received from former Nobel staffer Simon Frantz an audio clip that seized my heart. It is a 1954 recording of Ernest Hemingway reading his acceptance speech for the prize that year. (Hemingway did not attend the banquet, but had the U.S. Ambassador to Sweden read his short speech; soon after he recorded this audio in Cuba.)

I have read the speech a few times before. Yet when I listened to it today for the first time, at a time when I am re-reading his stories now and have him much on my mind, the words struck me with a new power. He was in a terrible place just then. He had written several great books and, more recently, some not so great and one, The Old Man and the Sea, a sort of small triumph that yet fell short of his best. In the seven years that remained before he would take his life because he could no longer write, he managed to assemble his powers for only one more great book — A Moveable Feast, his memoir of Paris and youth. He still reaches, but he cannot grasp. It will get worse, but he reaches still.

For a true writer each book should be a new beginning where he tries again for something that is beyond attainment. He should always try for something that has never been done or that others have tried and failed. Then sometimes, with great luck, he will succeed.

This, from “A Cat in the Rain,” 30 years earlier:

It was raining. The rain dripped from the palm trees. Water stood in pools on the gravel paths. The sea broke in a long line in the rain and slipped back down the beach to come up and break again in a long line in the rain.

That last sentence is the surf; less representation than replication of a natural cycle.

I don’t know how hard he had to work to write it — sometimes it came easy to him, sometimes not — but he did it. By the time he won the prize he couldn’t do it anymore. He could not generate the luck and could only rarely succeed, and he knows it. His pain imbues every second of this recording. So does his courage in trying to continue.

… out past where he can go, where no one can help him.


Thoughts of another writer waiting in the wings….Blue

Hemingway’s reputation has suffered immensely over the last two or three decades. Read around enough and you’ll see this. And I can feel it when I occasionally confess to people — for you don’t tell this, you confess it — that I love him and his writing. I always sense a bit of a surprise, as if that’s a rather strong feeling for a man who could be so odious and a writer who at times nudged close or fell in to self-parody. I’ve long thought of trying to explain what makes him so great and how he so utterly captivated me when I discovered him in my early teens. Now I don’t need to explain it…

Blue’s Thoughts

I have taken  many a trip to  the Keys and walked on his ole Boat that is preserved in A Sports Fishing Store in the Middle Keys. I find myself imagining catching that big Marlin off the Coast of the Dry Tortuga’s just due South of Key West on my home made offshore angler’s Favorite Squid Lure..My most watched movie and novel as a kid was “The Old Man in the Sea” with starring a weather beaten Spencer Tracy…What an Awesome Movie…And a best seller for Hemingway i’m sure…. I would read the novel under my blankets at night with my Green Hornet Flashlight and thought i was heaven..Thanks Ernest Hemingway for those great memories and  Mom for all those double D batteries !!….Blue/jp

The Nobel Acceptance Speech text is below. But best to listen.

Banquet Speech by Ernest Hemingway (excerpt)(2 minutes)

As Ernest Hemingway was unable to be present at the Nobel Banquet at the City Hall in Stockholm, 10 December 1954, the speech was read and recorded on a later date. In this audio recording, you can hear paragraph 2-7.


 Ernest Hemingway’s Nobel Acceptance Speech

No writer who knows the great writers who did not receive the Prize can accept it other than with humility. There is no need to list these writers. Everyone here may make his own list according to his knowledge and his conscience. It would be impossible for me to ask the Ambassador of my country to read a speech in which a writer said all of the things which are in his heart. Things may not be immediately discernible in what a man writes, and in this sometimes he is fortunate; but eventually they are quite clear and by these and the degree of alchemy that he possesses he will endure or be forgotten.Writing, at its best, is a lonely life. Organizations for writers palliate the writer’s loneliness but I doubt if they improve his writing. He grows in public stature as he sheds his loneliness and often his work deteriorates. For he does his work alone and if he is a good enough writer he must face eternity, or the lack of it, each day.For a true writer each book should be a new beginning where he tries again for something that is beyond attainment. He should always try for something that has never been done or that others have tried and failed. Then sometimes, with good luck, he will succeed.How simple the writing of literature would be if it were only necessary to write in another way what has been well written. It is because we have had such great writers in the past that a writer is driven far out past where he can go, out to where no one can help him.I have spoken too long for a writer. A writer should write what he has to say and not speak it. Again I thank you.
