    I think we are on the same side here if I understand what you are saying? I’m a big believer that Tebow was put in difficult positions to pass and that he would have had a large improvement going into his second year starting. My response with percentages was to someone else who said those guys were all 60% passers for their career, with the point being that 5 out of 6 of them were below 60% at the same point in their careers as when Tebow was under 60%.

    Take a couple deep breaths, my friend. We are having a polite conversation. No need to start hitting the negative ratings buttons and getting irate. Let’s not escalate.

    None of them were given 4-5 chances to make other rosters like Tebow was either

    True, they unfortunately benefited from a corrupt, long-standing system of college athletics that protects athletes.

    As a current 19 years in vet, I did. When they come over the PA and say please stand to honor the men and women who fight for our country, and someone kneels because they figure that’s the best time to protest that the concession stand ran out of their favorite cotton candy....I’m not really sure how else to take it other than being disrespecting to those people. That’s my thoughts though, everyone is different

    You wrongly accuse me of bringing up “the kneeling” and I call you out in it - and that is “irate” to you? “Pent up rage”? Your attempts at patronizing bullshit won’t fly here. We’re done.

    Ok, one minute the system is taking advantage of the athletes, and now it’s protecting athletes? You’re so busy trying to come up with counterpoints that you’re tripping over your own words. LOL

    Here's his QBR by year. Other years he doesn't appear to qualify for ranking due to an insufficient number of plays.

    21 year vet here. I never once thought he was disrespecting me or any vet, especially considering the context of his protest, and he himself stated he’s not disrespecting us. It’s a reach and projection to somehow ascribe military disrespect. You’re seeing something that is simply not there.

    You’re the one who introduced the “as a soldier who salutes the flag I....” aspect to this discussion, that you now say is “a reach”. You and Coop need to circle your wagons and try to figure out how to stop contradicting yourselves. LMAO

    So do stats/rankings matter or does on-field performance/wins matter? I notice the same folks who salivate over Tebow winning a single playoff game suddenly bristle at giving Kaepernick any credit for leading his team to a Super Bowl and nearly winning it.

    I’m a veteran.
    @Skink doesnt like me.
    Therefore, @Skink doesn't like the military.

    I’m kidding, by the way. Let’s go back to being homies.

    The NCAA as a system takes advantage of athletes, the university protects athletes (fixes grades, covers up rapes/crimes/assaults etc). You really thought you had a “gotcha” moment didn’t you?

    The route tree he'll be running will not be difficult to master. He's been catching a ball his whole life, most of the time while looking down the field at the same time. Blocking? he's a physical beast who could out bench 95% of the people he's blocking. Come on man.

    Timmy also has a much better TD/Int ratio than the horse-tooth a$$ that traded him.

    Why is it an issue? It’s an $875k gamble that brings a lot of sttemtion and publicity. Worth every penny. I watched one NFL game last season, the SB. For this I might actually watch a handful this season.

    He's been catching a 5 yard snap with no defenders draped on him. I think its kinda different. And benching is a much different animal than blocking, as I assume you already know. He's got the potential and the will. We will see if he can put it all together.
