He isn't that accurate, but another reason his % is lower is because when they throw they are taking shots down the field. There aren't many checkdowns in that passing game. His receivers also drop a ton of balls.
It's not like the Broncos have been throwing the ball downfield very much. Tebow's passing game has consisted largely of screens, flat passes and short out routes to begin with -- which makes his completion percentage that much worse.
No matter how you slice it, his numbers this season have been largely abysmal. His TD-INT ratio is about the only thing somewhat going for him. Even that wasn't otherworldly.
pass thrown behind the line of scrimmage: 24 of 32 - 75% completion
1-10 yards: 55 of 95 - 57.9% completion
11-20 yards: 31 of 84 - 36.9% completion
21-30 yards: 10 of 32 - 31.3% completion
31-40 yards: 4 of 21 - 19% completion
40+ yards: 0 of 5 - 0% completion

It's amazing how people have completely forgotten about the last 3 games of the season. It's like they never happened.
And the whole "hater" comments were tired like a month ago. Here's what happens: we all watch the games. The Broncos win and it's all because of Tebow. Some of us just don't buy what's shoved in our faces and dare to offer an opposing viewpoint that the guy isn't that good. That viewpoint is often times met with accusations of being a hater. Lame.

I was saying there's not a lot of checkdowns based on the games I've seen, but they definitely do run a ton of screen plays so I didn't consider those.
I watched every Tim Tebow start this year... the receivers are really inconsistent. They will make a lot of "hard" catches (by hard I mean catches that your above avg WRs will make)... then they will routinely let balls bounce off their hands/chests/etc. Decker and Thomas are decent.... I think if you add a legit #1 receiver, their the WRs would be considered "good"
Honestly, I think a great catching TE would be perfect for Tebow. Tons of PA/boot leg type routes are there for TEs.
When you have great receivers to throw to, you're more likely to complete more of your passes. He doesn't have Calvin Johnson or AJ Green or Reggie Wayne or a similar receiver to throw to.
And that is all I'm saying. For some to claim that he is no NFL QB, at this stage, is kind of ridiculous IMO.I think Tebow can get better.
"panic" only comes from having real expectations
