first id like to say thank you for accepting the debate good luck

First there scedule since tim tebow became the start they have played MIA, DET, OAK, KC, NYJ, SD, wich he only played two teams with a winning record, one was the lions wich destroyed denver 45-10, and the other were the jets at 5-4, and the only reason they beat the jets is because andre goodman had a pick 6.
They have the 31 passing offense in the nfl
tim tebow doesnt evan have a 50% completion rating
Since tim tebow has become starter he has only been the top rusher once, and it was against the jets and he had a hole 68 yards
and games the bronco's won the most points put up against them was 24 when they played the Raiders,
they have said tim tebow is one of the best comeback when the most he came back against was the raiders and the defense won that game with turnovers
so... to conclude tim tebow is overratted he's not a qb he's a want to be running back. and the defense is winnning games in denver not tim tebow

When the Broncos beat the Dolphins, they were down by 15 points with less than 5 minutes remaining in the game. It was one of Tebow's first games and he managed to put up 15 points in a very short amount of time to force overtime to beat the Dolphins.

In the lions vs Broncos game the Broncos defense gave up 45 points, Tebow didnt give any turnovers in the game so the idea that the Bronco's defense is doing all the winning is laughable.

As for the Jest game, The Broncos won when Tebow lead the Broncos on one last drive while down by three with less than 6 minutes left. The pick 6 you claim won the game happened in the third quarter but it was Tebows game winning 20 yard run that (thank god) beat the Jets to win the game.

Tebow may have a low completion average but he has thrown 8 touchdowns and only 1 interception all year, which is a lot better than some of the other QB's in the league.

http://espn.go.com...

As for the Raiders game, Tebow threw two passing touchdowns, rushed for over 100 yards, and led the Broncos offense to crush the Raiders 38-24,

How does a defense that gives up 24 points in a game be credited with the win when the offense scores 31 points and the only other touchdown was due to a punt return?

Broncos defense = 1 touchdown
Broncos offense = 4 touchdowns and 1 field goal......

Kind of implies Tebow is pretty good.

Now the Pro says Tebow is the most overrated player in the NFL, howeve I have found many others who may fit the bill much better,

1) Vince Young. In his first game starting as an Eagle with no Michael Vick, Eagles fans were hoping this QB who was the first draft pick of the NFL Draft would lead them to victory with a passing assault against the Seahawks who before the game were only 4-7

Young threw 4 inteceptions and the Eagles lost the game by a whopping 31-14....

http://www.seahawks.com...

2) Tony Romo
The Cowboys starting QB with a lifetime completion percentage of just 64% (A "D" in any gradebooks) is notorious for screwing up during games. This year he has thrown 21 TDs and 9 Ints, (a much poorer average than Tebow) and Romo's name is associated with blowing it. Last year when Romo miss handled a snap for an extra point attempt late in the game, he personally cost the Cowboys a spot in the playoffs that year and the Cowboys sat on their dismal record of 9-7 in 2006...

The very next year he botched a possible game winning drive against the Giants by throwing an interception IN THE ENDZONE with just minutes left. That year the Cowboys finished 13-3 but failed to go a step closer to the Superbowl because of another Romo screw up in 2007....

The Next year in 2008 the Cowboys again went 9-7 after the final game against the Eagles where Romo threw NO touchdowns but did give up 3 turnovers to cost the Cowboys another playoff berth... In 2009 Romo led his team to a loss against the Vikings in the playoffs after giving up three more turnovers and didnt throw a single touchdown... (the past tends to repeat itself huh)

2010 meanwhile was the worst season ever, the Cowboys started 1-6, then when Romo got injured and was pulled from being QB the Cowboys then went 5-4 WITHOUT ROMO to finish off the year.

3) Mark Sanchez
His completion percentage sits at a terrible 60.6 who in his career has scored 47 touchdowns and thrown 44 picks, a ratio that is stupendously worse than Tebow's or even Romo's

http://en.wikipedia.org...

4) Terrell Owens
Personally im sick of hearing about this guy, hes been on so many different teams in the NFL now that he gets passed around more than a joint :P. In the last two years alone he has only scored 14 touchdowns and he is a shadow of the player he once was and hasnt been on a playoff team in years now. He played for the Cowboys from 2006-2008 and you can see from the stats above that he didnt help the team win many games....

I extend my arguments but would like to add that on Sunday, Tim Tebow led yet another comeback win against the Vikings, and thanks to the Raiders loss the Broncos under Tebow have gone from worst in the AFC West to first place

Well even if Thiskid would have continued the debate I would still have to vote for imabench because I can give some other examples of overrated players in the NFL; and because TIM TEBOW ROCKS!

If the Packers face the Patriots in the superbowl, Tim Tebow will win player of the game.
