Because I am an NFL fan in general, I have been fascinated (albeit at a distance) at his improbably rise from third-string to the most talked-about quarterback issue this season (besides perhaps the neck of Peyton Manning).
I mean, from all I've heard about this guy, he's absolutely terrible as a "traditional" NFL quarterback. He won't stay in a pocket long enough to survey his options, his mechanics are sketchy, and his accuracy is fairly poor as well. Simply put, he doesn't pass the "eye test" of NFL QB's.
On the flip side, Tebow is accomplishing the ultimate NFL goal: winning games. Give him the ball with minutes to go and your team needing a score, and (at this point) you're almost guaranteed a victory. Heck, in an NFL era that saw the Wildcat formation flame out as quickly as Purple McNabb, Tebow has convinced his coaches to put in the college-option offense for him to run.
Thus, I am excited (oh yeah, Tim, thanks for selling out our Dome too!) to watch Mr. Tebow for an entire game this Sunday. I want to see what makes this guy tick and what makes him such a special character. The Vikings (despite their current reputation) put up a pretty solid defensive front against non-stud QB's, so it will be interesting to see how Tebow responds.
