Is Tim Tebow for Real? This Infographic Says Yes
A question many have in the NFL isn't so much about whether the Green Bay Packers will head to a perfect season undefeated, but rather, is Tim Tebow for real? Anyone who watches the NFL on a regular basis knows that the news has been as much about Tim Tebow since his start with the Denver Broncos a few weeks ago, as it's been about Sidney Crosby's return to the ice for the Penguins. I know, it's not really in the same sport, but it's in the same ballpark...(see what I did there).
Tim Tebow mania has grabbed Denver, and despite there being statements from John Elway and the Broncos Coaching staff about whether they think Tebow may or may not be the QB who'll take Denver all the way, he's actually done pretty good. That is an understatement if you look at the infographic put up on the NFL facebook page Thursday.
It shows that Tim Tebow is actually developing an arm, instead of always relying on his rushing abilities to make a play. When looking at Tim Tebow's stats for passing now as opposed to his first couple of weeks starting as the Broncos QB, he's showing a lot of improvement going from a 77.0 in Q1 - 3 to a 106.6 in Q4 this season. To put that into perspective, Aaron Rodgers, QB for the Packers, leads the league with a 125.3 passer rating, where the league average is 85.0 as of week 13. Tom Brady currently has a 105.9 passer rating for the whole season thus far.
Needless to say, it's impressive to see the improvement Tim Tebow has started to show late in this last quarter of the regular season. Is Tebow for real? The stats say he is, but a successful playoff run would tell the tale.
