Denver Post calls Tebow worst quarterback in league

The Detroit Lions have apparently cured Denver of Tebow Fever, at least for a week.
 
Here’s the take from Mark Kizla of the Denver Post on Sunday.
 
“[Tim]  Tebow played as ineptly as any sorry excuse for a pro quarterback possibly could. He was laughably bad,” Kiszla wrote.
 
Oh, there’s more:
 
“Those five wonderful minutes against Miami now look like an aberration. Right here, right now, he is the worst quarterback in the NFL.”
 
Those five wonderful minutes only happened because the Dolphins couldn’t secure an onside kick last week. The praise for Tebow after that performance was silly and this reaction is going too far the other way.
 
Tebow looked like one of the worst starters in the league last week, and that was the case again Sunday. But it was two games, and Tebow’s career prospects don’t need to be re-evaluated every start.
 
Tebow has the rest of the season to prove he can start in Denver.  (Although might need to get better in the next month or we’ll see Brady Quinn in December.)
 
But let’s calm down for a minute and admit Tebow is making everyone a little crazy.  At least give him the month before declaring he’s the best or worst anything.

Get use to it Denver. Tebow is likely going to start the rest of the year. You don't bench a guy like that after 1 game after pretty much declaring he is the future.

@FauxJohnMadden
Tim Tebow not only can turn water into wine, he can also turn the Lions defense into the 85 Bears.

 I thought Lovie said he wanted quickness & speed, even at the QB position?

They should sit him, let the crazyness settle down.  Don't they still have Brady Quinn?

\\\\\\\"Java, do you understand this a perfect example of why people beg me to suspend or ban you on a daily basis? Are you actually trying to make a point? Seriously what is the reason for even commenting. In fact why do you even bother coming to the boards? What happened to the intelligent poster from years ago?  A real shame. Like the Bucs yesterday, a wasted effort.\\\\\\\"

Like Tebow...that is a totally inaccurate statement. Tebow is bad...but the Raiders QBs are worse...lol. Palmer may eventually be better, but Kyle Boller is definitely worse.

Whoa...shiver me ****in timbers!

Your debating whether or not Tebow is the worst QB in the league right now?

If this is true, then the Bucs really need to trade for Tebow all the more.    It would be a perfect match to have the worst QB in the league and the worst head coach in the league on the same team.

Just finished watching the game on NFL rewind. Tebow had a few great passes, alot of meh, and a few horrid throws. Some were 5 yards off. Right at the end of the game he throw to a wide open WR who had to dive back toward the LOS just to get in the vicinity of the ball. Another one was so high the WR had to leap in the air just to get his fingertips on it.

Just downright aweful.

Ya I'm genuinely starting to feel bad for the kid. I hope they don't let him continue to embarrass himself on national tv like that

Hope he invests his money wisely, because I don't see any more money coming in from the NFL. Maybe he has a couple of Body Armor contracts along w/ Gatorade to add to the portfolio - and his book.  But this will be a Tony Mandarich type of story that we look back on - hopefully he'll make something out of his life after football. I don't think he'll have a problem.

Notice that he's got  playing-time incentives. So Fox may sit him to save the organization money.

Details show Tim Tebow's contract worth $9.7 million

The contract details on Broncos rookie quarterback Tim Tebow​ show his five-year deal really is worth $9.7125 million, not the $11.25 million the industry reports, according to a union source.

The difference is a one-time playing time bonus of $1.5375 million that the Players Association counts because it's "easy to earn." Almost all first rounders hit the one-time playing bonus, but Jarvis Moss​ and Brady Quinn from the 2007 draft are among those who have yet to hit their one-timers.

Tebow will be well on his way to his first NFL million on Friday, when the Broncos pay him a $975,000 advance, which essentially will be counted as a signing bonus for prorated salary cap reasons.


Some details on the Tebow

Broncos rookie quarterback QB Tim Tebow warms up before the afternoon practice on Monday. (THE DENVER POST | JOHN LEYBA)deal:

Base salary

2010: $1.295 million (fully guaranteed)

2011: $1.618.75 million (fully guaranteed)

2012: $1.942.5 million (fully guaranteed)

2013: $2.266.75 million (fully guaranteed)

2014: $2.590.5 million ($567,500 guaranteed)


Advance/Signing bonus


 $975,000 on Friday (salary reduced to $325,000)


 $6.275 million due 29 days after start of 2011 league year. Typically season starts March 1, but it's written this way in case work stoppage delays start of season. (Salaries from 2011-14 reduced to offset advance)


One-time playing time bonus (contractually considered likely to be earned)

Tebow collects $1.537.5 million if he plays 35 percent of the offensive snaps in 2010, or 45 percent of the snaps in any of the seasons 2011-14. The bonus rolls over from year to year until Tebow reaches the playing-time threshold, and expires the first time he hits it.

Mid-tier incentives (Contractually considered unlikely to earn)

Value of Tebow's contract doubles from $11.25 million (including one-time playing time bonus) to $22.5 million if he reaches multiple thresholds, including:


 55 percent playing time in two of his first three seasons, 2010-12, or 70 percent playing time in 2013.


 The Broncos make the playoffs, he reaches certain QB ranking thresholds, and receives unspecified honors.


Max value (contractually considered unlikely to earn)

The total value of Tebow's contract can escalate to $33 million if the Broncos reach the playoffs multiple times in his first four years, he has multiple top 5 QB rankings, and he has multiple league honors such as NFL MVP and Super Bowl MVP.

This shouldn't be a problem for him.
