Skip Bayless Loses Any Credibility He Had Left, Says Tebow Will Be The Next Brett Favre
Well, on First and 10 they were arguing about who would be the best pick between McCoy, Braford and Tebow when they all come out next year. SAS choose Bradford, and Skip chose Tebow, prompting SAS to quip that Tebow would make a nice tight end. So Skip went nuts, and said that Tim Tebow would be the next Brett Favre. As in, better than a guy who already has his ticket punched for the Hall of Fame and has more touchdown passes than anyone else in NFL history. Take it away Skip.
You'll notice at the end, Skip suddenly realizes how bad his decision was, and throws in the "in idolatry" line.
No you don't, big guy. You clearly said he'd be the next Brett Favre, with no additional details, which is maybe the craziest thing I've ever heard. Favre isn't exactly the prototypical pocket passer, but he's not a runner - like Tebow is - by any means. Favre also has a cannon in comparison to Tebow, and is able to get past his first read. Maybe Skip meant Tebow will have the same tendency as Favre to throw mind boggling interceptions.
Plus, even if we are talking about idolatry, how much do you think a fan base is going to love a bench riding QB who ultimately gets converted into a tight end? My guess would be not that many people.
