Jerome Bettis got the morning off on the right foot when he jokingly took a shot at New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow.
Joining “NFL AM,” the former Pittsburgh Steelers running back, who had 91 rushing touchdowns in 13 NFL seasons, was asked who the better goal line runner was, himself or Tebow.
“Well, I would have to say myself, because he doesn’t have 90 yet,” he said, chuckling. “If he gets up to 90, then I may have to concede.”
Very diplomatic, Mr. Bus.
Then host Brian Webber (https://twitter.com/bwwebber) mentioned that Bettis also had three touchdown passes in his career.
“So you should be asking who is the better quarterback,” he said, busting out laughing.
Zing!

EB Steelers: That is one way to look at the positive of that game, lol


As you EB stated, Tebow beat the Steelers so he can't be all that bad, unless your saying our secondary sucked, was lazy, was caught napping, out of position, feeling their jocks?lol Lets not start that up again.

Why the hatred for Tebow? He is a good kid, sure a little to happy go lucky praising every other word, like God onlylistens to the press conferences lol. But eventually he will be caught with a hooker and pipe and come back to earth, lol He just needs that taste.

But seriously, I rather have my kid be like Tebow than have him be in jail, wandering the streets etc etc. Or worse, be like Andys Reid kid.

Wow, that's not so easy ... I'm kind of flipping back and forth. Each time I think about one of them, I come to the quick conclusion that the other guy must be better!

Tim Tebow reminds me of a young Terry Bradshaw. Terry wasn't very good for about 6 years and he was a better runner than he was a passer. Both have the same athletic build and both are/were strong as bulls. I sincerely hope that Tim does equally as well.

I, for one, certainly do NOT hope that Timmy wins four SuperBowls (as that would be four less for Pittsburgh).

No you have it backwards, the other guy is better!

For all of the ones that the Steelers don't win, and there will be more than 4 of those, guaranteed, I can't think of a finer individual than Tim Tebow to win 4 of them.

I am sorry, but Bradshaw could throw way better than Tebow has or ever will. Sure, Terry was erratic at times early on, but his mechanics were always excellent. He was the first player drafted overall in 1970 for a reason.

He wasn't erratic at times early on, he was erratic most of the times for the first 5 or 6 years of his career. I don't know about you but I had the good fortune to have seen all of his games during that era.

Besides, being able to lead a team of men, to inspire them and have them put out maximum effort for you is far more important in a quarterback than passing mechanics ever were. And Tebow has that in spades. Bradshaw had it. Sanchez doesn't.
