    Tebow couldn't throw. Pretty important trait to lack considering his position.

    He could throw well enough to throw 30+ TDs in 2007 and 2008 and complete over 66% of his passes throughout his career. AGAINST SEC DEFENSES. When they actually played defense in the SEC, and not the clown college defense they played this season.

    College stats, man.

    Are you serious? You're better than this man. Defenses prepared for Tebow in such an unorthodox way. You took away the run and made him pass because he was virtually unstoppable with the ball in his hands running downhill. He could only complete the most basic routes. He also had the problem with his delivery and throwing motion. To compare Tebow to Manziel is worse than comparing Vick to Vince Young. They're nothing alike.

    Just from watching Tebow, you knew he couldn't throw. I don't need any stats to tell me that.

    And stats have nothing to do with why I love manziel so much. He throws the most crisp spiral I've seen since Newton, he's always on the money and can make all the throws. He's a natural leader and has the mental capacity to handle the NFL and all its rigors. He's the man.

    I'd argue the same thing with Ryan Fitzpatrick being terrible, but you saw something different.

    Your opinion on QBs in null and void.

    I hate to admit that he sure knows how to win in college. But watching a lot of his throws from last night when "in the pocket" he throws flat footed or on his heels and often relies on his receivers blowing past people. He won't get by with that in the NFL.

    He will probably be gone well before the Titans draft and may end up in Jag land. With Bridgewater coming out and projected to go #1 it will be interesting to see where he does land.

    I just don't know if he will survive the spotlight of the NFL...he sure handled it poorly in college.

    No, but we can all see how your Fitzpatrick argument from about six months ago sucked.
