A while ago I asked for responses from Tim Tebow fans regarding his abilities as a quarterback. I received this response recently, I don’t have the name other than the twitter handle, but I wanted to share the response with you guys. So here is a fan’s perspective on Tim Tebow the QB, from @ThisIsZeri:

All of these things that experts claim are wrong with Tebow are fixable. Tim Tebow has played 2 years in the NFL, started in less than half of his games (16 games in 2 years), has had 2 head coaches, no pro bowl receivers or running backs, and only one offseason. And people are writing him off already?

If Tebow finds himself in a situation with a stable coaching staff and solid receivers (=#Jets) that he can develop chemistry with , I have no doubt his completion percentage will improve by leaps and bounds.

We realized he must continue to work on some of his mechanics, and he might not be a starter right away, but in a very short period of time he’s going to be a good QB and an excellent NFL player. He just needs to continue to learn and take advantage of his opportunities.

At the end of the day, results are more important than style. And completion percentage is far less important than wins, touchdowns, interceptions and playoff success. Tebow has far more wins, and a much better touchdown and interception ratio, than many QBs who have a higher completion percentage. He may never be able to do the things that Tom Brady or Aaron Rodgers do, but he will win. If he’s not winning, he’ll work harder than any player in the league to make sure that eventually he does.

Tebow is going to be great for the league.

Feel free to disagree, but I just have one question: If we see with open eyes and we listen with open ears, why don’t we think with an open mind?

A sincere thanks for the response.  All fair points made.
