Because I’m watching the Peach Bowl right now and I’m finding myself sitting here saying “Man, that third guy in the booth is pretty insightful — he’s calling out plays before they happen, he’s super responsive to the on-field action and he has some cool observations. I like this guy!”
“This guy” is Tim Tebow.
Mr. “My Career Completion Percentage is 47.9%.” Mr. “The Broncos Succeeded in Spite of Me and It Took Signing Peyton Manning to Salvage the Franchise.” Mr. “He Just Finds a Way to Win Games Because He’s Got Tebow Magic™!” This guy represents everything I hate about evaluating NFL QB talent. He single-handedly proved how useless QB wins are as a stat.
But when Trevone Boykin ran a fake option pitch and turned upfield for a first down, Tebow said “that’s a playmaker just making a play and looking sweet.” That’s the funniest and most accurate thing anyone could have said there, Timbo. You may not be a winner in football anymore, but you’re a winner in my heart.
