You'd be very hard pressed to find a sports fan who is indifferent about Tim Tebow.
He is the 2010 1st round selection by the Denver Broncos that's not the typical drop back quarterback, doesn't have the typical quarterback throwing motion and talks openly about his faith. He was also a Heisman-winning, 2-time National Champion in college.

Mention Tebow's name though and you're sure to get a fury of responses, both positive and negative. Those who support Tebow stand firm, refusing to accept that he completes less than 50% of his pass attempts. Those who can't stand him refuse to see that he's thrown 9 career touchdowns against 4 interceptions while rushing for nearly 400 yards and 7 scores. However, he's not in the top 30 passers or the top 30 rushers in the NFL this season.
His supporters are happy today following a Broncos win against the division rival Oakland Raiders. Tebow completed 10 of 21 passes for 124 yards and 2 touchdowns while rushing 12 times for 117 yards. His Broncos are now only a game back in the division, having won 2 of their last 3 games. The team is also 30th in passing, while maintaining the 8th best rushing attack.
No doubt Tim's a quality guy, but that doesn't change the mind of any haters. However, supporters would claim being a good guy makes him a role model, someone kids can look up to.
Is he an NFL-worthy quarterback? You guys tell me.
