Tim Tebow’s desire to be the best at what he does is no secret. Whether you believe he deserves to be the Broncos starting quarterback, and bought a billboard to prove it, we can all agree Tebow has a tremendous work ethic. Whether the Broncos would be better off with Tebow starting instead of Kyle Orton is a seperate argument. This particular discussion is intended to examine whether or not Tebow should be compared to Roger Staubach.
You may know Staubach as the two-time Super Bowl winning, Hall of Fame quarterback that was selected to six Pro Bowls during his tenure with the Cowboys in the 1970s. Tebow, on the other hand, is a man many consider to be the second coming of Christ, who has been as low as third on the depth chart this season. That didn’t stop former Broncos coach Dan Reeves from drawing a strong comparison between the two.
According to The Denver Post, Reeves recently called Tebow “the closest thing to Roger (Staubach) I’ve seen in a quarterback.” Reeves reportedly said that Staubach “didn’t want to get beaten by anyone” which is exactly the “type of winner” Tebow is. Based on that logic, I guess it’s safe to say half the guys in the NFL can be compared to the Cowboys legend.
