Conclusion: The QB stats don't lie. Tim Tebow has had an impressive debut as a starter. Sure he didn't finish in the top 3 in every category but he definitely is in the mix. What is really impressive is that Tebow so far has a tendency not to throw picks. A 2.75 TD/INT ratio for a newcomer is out of this world. In contrast most of the pundits treat Tebow like he is chopped liver.
