This is with receivers that are mostly mediocre, as anyone could see the first three quarters on Sunday where they dropped plenty of balls.
Plus, while he obviously needs work on his accuracy, it's hard to get in a rhythm when you throw the ball 15 times a game. And when you throw so infrequently, those drops really kill the completion percentage. Not saying it would be 65%, but it would be a lot better with more polished receivers. Imagine if Brandon Lloyd was still there. Also, I think Tebow could put up more points if the Broncos called a more aggressive game plan. But the defense is holding teams to 13 points, so Fox is calling a very conservative game. Against the Vikings, when the D was horrible, The Broncos put up 28 points on offense, all of it in the 2nd half after Fox called a very vanilla first half.
