Default 50% Ben, or a healthy Tebow?

That was a poll held on SportsNation this week, in which Ben came out on top, 70-30. It's obvious that Ben's the better quarterback, even when hobbled. Hell, even Denver fans think so: http://forums.denverbroncos.com/showthread.php?t=204931


Gametime soon. Is a healthy Tebow better than a healthy Batch?

Well, there's mere hours remaining until gametime, and every second is killing me. I think i'll go back to be and wake up at around 4:00.
That's abit far-fetched, but yes the Steelers will obviously adjust to help a hobbled Ben, but a 50% injured Ben, is not "really" better than any 100% Healthy QB. I mean comon', ... ya'd think. ?

Exactly.


If Ben was a pocket-passer and that comparison was made to other such passers then yes, Ben would win out.
But the truth is that Ben actually sucks as a pocket-passer and I believe that he actually NEEDS to move around to get a better idea of where everyone else is on the field and not being able to do that severely compromises him.

I'm sorry if i'm not making any sense, i'm haven't slept for a day

Not to mention I have a bad cold, and this damn game has me amped up. Can't sleep.

Have you seen Tebow's throwing motion? It's almost like he is throwing a shot put!

Actually, i'd take a 10% Ben over a 100% Tebow. Hell, i'd take a 60% Ben over just about any decent healthy qb.

ya, have you seen Tebow's throwing arm - the guy atleast shows up to every pratice, AND, he obviously works out (A LOT). He's almost as tough as a "real" RB.
you can read between these lines, but the point is .... muscles build tendons, which directly support bones.
Ben needs to WORK-OUT more. ! err atleast it wouldn't hurt right ?
most especially, becuase a 100% Ben, IS A SCRAMBLER ! duh! -but not so much with a busted-up ankle.

I'll take Ben over Tebow and Eli Manning.

Watching this NFC game, Eli 0-5 , 3 int's and 0 td's in home playoff games. Ben gets no respect and I can't understand how they use Eli and Rivers in the same category.
