John Elway is one of the best quarterbacks of all time. He’s a Hall of Famer who won two Super Bowls and an MVP. Tim Tebow is a second-year quarterback who hasn’t even played 16 games. His throwing motion is shaky, and he runs the ball a good amount of the time. The funny thing is his numbers blow away Elway’s through their first 10 respective starts.
There really isn’t a whole lot to deduce here, and this isn’t an argument that Tebow is better than Elway. There are so many things you could say that affect the conversation.
Elway’s first 10 starts came in his rookie year; most of Tebow’s first 10 starts have come in his second year. It’s also widely recognized that Elway played his best football later in his career. Still, it’s just funny how ugly Tebow’s style is perceived to be, yet how nice his stats are (overall). If he can continue to improve as a passer, and that’s a big if, he should continue to have success.
