Players don't lose their college background when they enter the NFL. Colt Brennan's stuff was really hot for a season too (not nearly to the extent of tebow's, but for good reason)

No clue. The guy hasn't done anything to assume he's horrible, but he also hasn't proven himself in the NFL. Why people are willing to take such an expensive risk on an unproven player that plays the position with the biggest, most infamous and repetitive busts year in and year out...I have no clue. I sleep well at night telling myself people are stupid, this helps me accept a lot of things lol

Some people have more $ than Smarts. That's all. Britney Spears and Madonna sell a lot of albums.

LOL, look he's not a bad player but he is far from great and his potential as a QB (let alone a NFL player) is no where near what his hype is right now.

the guy was quite possibly the best college player of all time without a doubt top 5, he has a cult following in fla and with his attitude and work ethic i wouldnt classify him as your run of the mill college star nfl bust player, that being said im not running out to spend 1200 bucks on the guy but if i pull one of his cards it may be worth while to hold him for just to see what happens

He's a no good meat head d-bag. He'll be out of the league in 3 years.

It has to be the college football career and the "good guy" image. Remember before the draft he was talked about as being anywhere from a 4th round pick to not even being drafted. Until he actually worked on changing his throwing mechanics NO ONE thought he would be a QB. So basically what I am saying is there has NEVER been NFL hype for the guy so it has to be everything he did prior to his NFL days.

I had to vote Bradford because i firmly believe he will have the best career of the set - but personally i like Tebow, I'd like to see him get into a sort of Brad Smith (Jets) role with the Broncos.

Maybe Timmy will get some PT today, since his squad is getting crushed so bad.

Yeah make me a believer. C'mon Josh put Tebow in. That's considering that Oakland doesn't put their backups in lol.

Cult following, good-guy image, one of the greatest college QBs of All-Time. It's that simple...
