Tebow was an All-American, Heisman winner and a two time National Champion for the Florida Gators. People knew who he was when he was drafted, people knew who he was before he had the chance to start and people knew his story. Jeremy Lin on the other hand, was an All-Ivy League player that’s it! People didn’t know his story until he dropped 25 points against the New Jersey Nets.
I just don’t get the comparison between the two. The only similarity I see between the two is that they stardom and success will not last. Look at Landry Fields of the Knicks, he went crazy last year before dropping off, just wait for this to happen to Jeremy Lin. Don’t get me wrong, I like what he is doing for the team but I don’t think it will last.
Tebow sucks!! His throwing motion is horrendous and his completion percentage is even worse. He got lucky against the Steelers in the playoffs!!!
