OK, time to take away all of the rhetoric. There’s a lot of talk about the guy pictured to the right, we know that. I have made clear my opinion of this move by the Jets. Any regular to this website knows that as well. Today, I wanted to strip it all down, and take a look statistically at Tim Tebow, and say, what do his fans see? What about his performance am I missing? He must be loved for a reason. So off I went.
Some of what he did in 2011 was impressive. He did put up an interception percentage was a meager 2.2%, while Mark Sanchez put up 3.3%.
His completion percentage was also excellent on the deep ball. On passes from 21-30 yards, he went over 50% , to 52.1 to be exact. For passes over 31 yards, it went up to a whopping 63.2 %. Our incumbent QB, Mr. Sanchez, got worse as the attempts got deeper. His percentage from 21-30 yards was 52.7 %, and over 31 yards he fell under 50%, to 49.5%.
So this is clearly an element that appeals to fans. Tim Tebow is adept at completing the deep ball, and that always garners the interest of fans. There Tebow fans, I gave your guy a compliment. I know that’s rare for me, so take it in and enjoy it.
