Tebow, Stafford continuing their QB rivalry

oth entering their much-anticipated junior seasons this fall, Tim Tebow and Matt Stafford have been linked for much of the past seven years. The SEC QBs are often mentioned in the same breath, whether uttered in civilized dinner table discussions or heated sports bar debates.

As high school stars, their respective resumes read like a pig-skinned version of "Everything You Can, I Can Do Better." Tebow was Florida's Mr. Football, a participant in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl Game and a Parade All-American. Stafford, meanwhile, won the MVP and "Best Arms" awards at the 2005 EA Elite 11 Quarterback Camp, as well as the EA Sports National Player of the Year. He, like Tebow, was a Parade All-American.

But, the funny thing, or odd thing is, they have a poll, Who is the BETTER qb, Tebow or Stafford, and Stafford is winning in the poll???

That's why I don't hold these so called "polls" in high regard. 9 times out of 10 it's non -athletic 30 something year old males sitting in front of a computer screen clearing their cookies on the computer for hours so they can vote 100 times.

Let 'em vote all they want, look who has the Heisman Trophy. Their vote doesn't matter.

Not only doesn't their vote matter, look at the numbers.

Passing Statistics
NAME SCHOOL CMP ATT YDS CMP% YDS/A TD INT SACKS RAT
2. Tim Tebow, Florida 234 350 3286 66.9 9.4 32 6 13 172.47
895 yards rushing with 23 TD's

56. Matthew Stafford, Georgia 194 348 2523 55.7 7.3 19 10 15 128.92
-18 yards rushing with 2 TD's

Man, if that's a rivalry, Stafford's definitely on the wrong end of it... like being on the wrong end of a gunfight.

The stats posted speak for themselves; Tebow has Stafford beat on paper. Polls are more or less popularity contests as far as I see them; if Stafford was at the level Tebow is right now he would have been a Heisman finalist.

It will be a great UGA-UF game this upcoming season. Hopefully both teams will be undefeated and Florida wins it.

hmm I didnt know tebow started for two years now? what was leak doing then during tim's freshman year?


hmmm. I didn't know you had to start to be included in a TEAM victory. I do believe football is a TEAM sport. I'm not sure though. Let me check up on that and I'll get back to you....

Read this slow now so you can understand it! head to head tebow 0 Stafford 1! you do have to be the starting qb in order to say it was a head to head match up you really aren't showing your school's education program any justice if you can not understand that!

Let me ask you a serious question. How many starters on defense did Ga. return from the previous year? (that played in '06 & '07)

I cant remember exactly right of the top of my head but for some reason I want to say 5!

We had 2 that were fulltime starters the previous season (Tony Joiner & Derrick Harvey). The rest were true freshman and sophomores (the sophs. only played in very few situations). That being said, I look for a very close game this year and I hope both teams are undefeated heading into the game.

Once again, TEAM sport.

Tim Tebow's TEAM- 1
Matthew Stafford's TEAM-1
