Tim Tebow wins PFWA Good Guy Award

Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow isn’t just good for business.

He makes our business easier.

Tebow was chosen as the Professional Football Writers of America Good Guy Award winner, in recognition of his professionalism in helping members of the media do their jobs.

Tebow has always gracefully and graciously handled all the attention heaped upon him, particularly during Denver’s surprising turnaround and playoff run last year.

“I think Tim handled himself well all season long with the kind of attention few players are asked to contend with at any point in their careers,” said Denver Post beat writer Jeff Legwold, the PFWA’s second vice-president. “Tim not only dealt with the traditional media obligations both locally and nationally, but he was also the focus of many non-traditional media outlets, both from in Denver and across the country.

“And while he didn’t always let folks peer into his innermost thoughts, he did always conduct himself professionally, with a great deal of respect for both the process and the people who take part in it.”

People are fascinated with the kid for many reasons. And while his play is always the cause for vigorous debate (and even a lot of manufactured silliness), he has always handled himself appropriately.

Previous winners of the Good Guy Award include Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees and Kurt Warner.

Tim Tebow, who arrived in New York with a reputation for being media friendly, was selected the winner of the 2012 Good Guy Award by the Pro Football Writers of America.

The Good Guy Award is given to a NFL player for his qualities and professional style in helping pro football writers do their jobs. The award was first given by the PFWA in 2005.

Tebow won it for the way he handled the media crush last season, when he led the Broncos to an improbable playoff run and became one of the biggest names in sports. Tebow, traded to the Jets in March, was cited by numerous national writers for how he handled the attention that came with his play on the field during the 2011 season for Denver.

It won't get any easier in New York, as evidence by his introductory news conference. It drew more than 200 media types.

Previous Good Guy winners:

2005 – Jerome Bettis (Steelers)

2006 – Tiki Barber (Giants)

2007 – LaDainian Tomlinson (Chargers)

2008 – Brett Favre (Packers)

2009 – Kurt Warner (Cardinals)

2010 – Drew Brees (Saints)

2011 – Aaron Rodgers (Packers)

I'd still take Lawrence Taylor, a Key of cocaine and 2 underaged prostitutes to having a swell dude who's the NFLs most recognizable and charismatic punt protector

Yeah... BUT, what if the punt protector can also throw for over 300 yds against number one defenses..?

Tim Tebow- the media loves you! Now can you throw a straight pa$$?

1st year in the NFL - 90 of 179, 50.3%, 7.0 yds/att, 5 TD's to 12 Ints, 54.7 PER, at age 27.

* NFL - Career passing percentage 50.0%, QB Pass Efficiency Rating 59.9, with 76 TD's to 116 Ints.

In his 8 NFL seasons Joe had 4 season with a below 50% completion percentage, his best in 1974 was only 52.9%.

Totaled 40 more Interceptions than Touchdowns in his NFL career (76 to 116).

For the usual stat ignorant, the above stats are Broadway Joe's actual NFL Career numbers, 1970-76 Jets, 77 Rams.

-----------------

The Top 3 Items that are NEVER mentioned by those that diss on Tebow:

1. Tim's many Bronco and/or NFL Passing records, including the ones he set in his first NFL Playoff game.

2. Tebow's TD to Turnover Ratio with so little help or support in Denver.

a. 17 Passing TD's to 9 Ints - (1.84 to 1)

b. 12 Rushing TD's to 6 Lost possession fumbles - (2.0 to 1)

c. Overall 29 TD's to 15 Turnovers - (1.93 to 1)

>> 2011 - 12 TD's to 6 Ints for a 2.0 to 1 Ratio

3. Tebow's W/L record in his first 16 NFL starts (8-6 + 1-1) that included a Playoff win over the NFL's #1 defense.

A 'straight pass' to the other teams defender is not as good of a pass than one that goes into the dirt or out of bounds.
