Tim Tebow has been criticized, and jumped on all preseason long. The media has been against him, and the world has rooted against him – all except Bronco fans, Tebow fans, and Gator fans. Yet, Tebow hasn’t given up. Tebow has remained humble, and fueled to get stronger and better.
This preseason, in all fairness, Tebow has not been all that bad. Here are the grades for Tebow’s performances at the halfway point of the preseason:
Week One vs Dallas:
Tebow was 6 for 7 for 91 yards, and ran the ball twice for 15 yards. Tebow threw no touchdowns, no interceptions. Tebow’s best play was a 43 yard pass to Matt Willis, and picked up a third down to David Anderson.
Tebow had his ups and downs. Compared to Orton, Tebow took more risks. Orton went 2-6, Brady Quinn went 8 for 14, and threw a touchdown. Quinn was best out the three.
Tebow didn’t get the best protection. Tebow ran all over the pocket, made a few bad throws, and missed some throws. Tebow looked rushed, and hurried most of the time.
Grade: C. Tebow’s performance was average. He only missed one throw, which was to an open receiver, but it happens. Not every quarterback is going to make every throw.
