I don't care it's Jacksonville New York Denver whatever he's not a good NFL quarterback you have Suisse wrote in a lot of situations. By eight. A great deal -- very very good to agree to a very very good defense a very good running game. At a very patient coach -- then receivers and fans of global put up it's just the way it is.

Place also put his team and horrible. Horrible fuel positions -- most of every single game last year leak leak and three and outs. Because he you know is the numbers -- the -- three yards passing and want to present a 500% of the percent passing game against Pittsburgh. Because he played one pass against cover zero Y will never know that the global came up that the -- at that particular scheme. Why won't people go back and look at the three game because other -- that -- play -- -- them out of their values year which are asking people who do was to look at it from a broad viewpoint.

That look at this guy is something different and he may very well be different. But the problem is he's different as an individual he's not to produce an auction. He's different as a quarterback. The rest tomorrow what that's always -- -- when we all know what he's gone off the field we all agree on what that we after this preamble every time accused in the door again anyway it is Christmas advocates -- you're about -- very upset and he's great with kids that charity work. We we grant him everything I grant him everything I have never in my life. 45 years of follow sports probably that members since I was seven rights of secret 38 years of follow its sports that I can ever remember. Up backup quarterback being treated like this. On other not what he does off of talk about on the field his profession what he's supposed to do very well which he sucks that. I've never in my life -- any athlete more publicized we're doing slightly fairly important well what are white women he brought that team. He was part of of the team and he was the leading figure on that team.

Usually character because the media made a bottle what it's like stability and prosperity in -- I didn't I didn't give you reasons why don't -- -- -- a fraud saying when you look at it. From a football standpoint the MVP of that team last year I said. And I don't pay to read it. -- MVP. I'll tell you without that guys kicks they do nothing he blasted some big time fifty gardeners. He missed a beat every single time they need to kick it over time he nailed it. And just I just it's. -- a government position to get that. Not a lot of times not Tebow who did -- because of the things that did the threat that I was all right what difference at -- because Tebow has so many three and outs. It's got a -- fifty artists of the Tebow. Being able to even get a first -- to close out games couldn't we we are on the exact same page in terms of his talent level I agree but I can it's very simple as to why. He is that big personality yours by Heisman Trophy winner of what a great college quarterbacks. And guys came out and there's still love certain. -- flow vote religious sorrows. Overtures to move people liking him -- does it help -- the quarterback.
