    Tebow is.  The media mentions him.  You are giving him great importance.  He's only had three field goals over 50 yards this year, it's just that his longest and perhaps most dramatic happened yesterday.  So what, his statistics don't put him anywhere in the top ten of anything except longest.  He's missed a bunch from 40-49yards.  The reality is that he just another guy on this team working his hardest and perhaps playing at his best because this guy Tebow inspires him.  There's nothing wrong with that.  We all hated Brett Farve too, but he was a leader too, and that's what made him great and it may make Tebow great too.  See, that's the problem with you statistics guys, there's concrete to rate leadership on, but it's one of the most important characteristics of a great quarterback.  So, you can throw all your statistics out.  He's one of the great leaders in pro football.  He's also got a pretty good team of other leaders, especially on defense.  So, IMHO, it only matters who the team is giving credit to, and they are giving it to Tebow, who never takes it but always lavashies it on his team mates.  Makes you kinda nostalgic, doesn't it.
