Stats are dumb. Scoreboard!!!!

So Did Tebow Play Well?

Not according to ESPN’s Total QBR, a relatively new rating system that assigned Tim Tebow a low score of 29.7 in Denver’s overtime victory against San Diego on Sunday.

Remember how ESPN had to frantically explain why their new-fangled secret metric to end all QB metrics except they're the Worldwide Leader and you don't just dive into stats with little practice and lots of fanfare gave Tim Tebow a higher Total QBR in his first start than it did Aaron Rodgers? Well, now they have to spend columns trying to explain why Tebow's Total QBR ranks 31st overall. More of this fun to come, until ESPN hopefully abandons Total QBR someday...
