Would you want Tim Tebow as your team’s starting QB? [Poll]

October 24, 2011 |  9:07 am

Say what you want about Tim Tebow — and people always have plenty to say about him — but there seems to be some sort of magical quality about him. But is magic enough to make it as a starting quarterback in the NFL?

It seems to be working so far for Tebow. Though he looked horrible for the first 54 minutes of Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins, the quarterback somehow led the Denver Broncos on a 15-point rally, passing for a pair of touchdowns and running for a successful two-point conversion to force overtime. The Broncos won with a long field goal.

The same thing almost happened in the Broncos' previous game, when Tebow took over for Kyle Orton in the second half of a 29-24 loss to the San Diego Chargers. Although his first several drives went nowhere, Tebow eventually led Denver to two touchdowns before having a desperation pass batted down in the end zone on the final play.

A two-time BCS champion at Florida and a Heisman trophy winner, Tebow has had plenty of success as a quarterback. But many have wondered whether he has the skills to play the position as a starter in the NFL -- and his overall performances so far this season may not have erased any of those doubts.

What do you think? Would you like Tebow as the quarterback of your favorite NFL team? Vote in the poll and then leave a comment explaining yourself (please note which team you root for).
