Tim Tebow wins again: luck or skill?
But is his success luck or skill? I am not the first, nor will I be the last person to pose this question. Tebow is quite possibly the most talked about quarterback in the NFL--and was so even before he became the Broncos stater in week seven. Tebow presents a unique attraction to sports fans due to his collegiate success at Florida, his unorthodox (to say the least) throwing style and of course his religious fervor. Some people find him inspiring, others are disgusted by him and what he stands for (recall the pro-life ad at last year's Super Bowl)
There is no denying the Broncos have played better with Tebow at the helm. The team was 1-4 before he started and is 4-1 with him starting. But is Tebow getting lucky?
In those four wins Denver's defense has given up just 15, 24, 10 and 13 points respectively. The one time the Bronco defense did slip up, against the Lions, the team got stomped 45-10. Only once has Tebow led the offense to 20-plus points. Last week in a victory over the Kansas City Chiefs Tebow completed only two passes the entire game.
On the other side of the argument is the passion that Tebow brings to the team. He is a relentless leader, and some might say he is willing his under-talented team to victory. Denver is running a very *different* offense, but it is working well enough right now, and inexplicably, Denver is in the AFC West race and Tim Tebow could be a playoff quarterback.
But is he lucky or is he the real deal? Where do you lean?
