Posted by moranis on 9/10/2013 2:30:00 PM (view original):Jackson's career sack % is nearly 2.5% better than Tebow. Jackson fumbles every 54.2 touches (pass attempts + rushes + sacks / fumbles). Tebow fumbles every 39.9 touches. Tebow's main year his completion % was 46.5% well below his average because as he had more opportunities to throw he had a lot more misses. That is the point. The more Tebow throws the worse he is. Tarvaris on the otherhand was over 60% in his most prolific passing season. Hell Tebow had a game where he was 2 for 8 for 69 yards in the entire game and Denver won that game. He followed that up with a 9 for 20, 104 yards, another victory and yet another victory where he went 9 for 18 and 143. So in a 3 game stretch Tebow went 20 for 46 for 316 yards with 2 TD's and was 3-0. He had another game where he was 6 of 22 for 60 yards, a 4 point loss. The reality is Denver won those games in spite of Tebow, not because of him. He is a solid runner without question and adds a nice element there, but you have to be able to throw the ball when you aren't running. That is why a guy like Terrelle Pryor is starting for Oakland and not Tebow. Pryor at least can hit the open man and is every bit the runner Tebow is.
