The Detroit Lions have apparently cured Denver of Tebow Fever, at least for a week.
Here’s the take from Mark Kizla of the Denver Post on Sunday.
“[Tim] Tebow played as ineptly as any sorry excuse for a pro quarterback possibly could. He was laughably bad,” Kiszla wrote.
Oh, there’s more:
“Those five wonderful minutes against Miami now look like an aberration. Right here, right now, he is the worst quarterback in the NFL.”
Those five wonderful minutes only happened because the Dolphins couldn’t secure an onside kick last week. The praise for Tebow after that performance was silly and this reaction is going too far the other way.
Tebow looked like one of the worst starters in the league last week, and that was the case again Sunday. But it was two games, and Tebow’s career prospects don’t need to be re-evaluated every start.
Tebow has the rest of the season to prove he can start in Denver. (Although might need to get better in the next month or we’ll see Brady Quinn in December.)
But let’s calm down for a minute and admit Tebow is making everyone a little crazy. At least give him the month before declaring he’s the best or worst anything.
