Tebow has limited skill but has the x factor of being a leader of men.Painter has neither.I would rather have Gunner Kiel in there right now,this is the most pathetic display of offense I have ever seen.

Tebow, then we would have our entire backfield in one player and could play two more linemen.

Painter has far and away the better physical talent for a QB, but Tebow is a winner and that is all that matters.

I think Painter has better innate talent than Tebow. But, Painter isn't being put into a position where he can use those talents. When Reggie Wayne stated that Painter knew the offense better than Collins, he was probably right. The problem was, it was Peyton Manning's offense, not one designed for Painter.

What is missing (and others have shown this too) is that Tebow has a winning mentality. The Colts have become perfectly comfortable with losing, for whatever reason. In other words, it's expected of them. Winning is a "culture". Unfortunately, losing is a culture too.

Please. I've already detested the entire "Tebow phenomena" for years from 2,000+ miles away. He isn't an NFL QB, and he is annoying as sin to boot.

Steve Young said it very well recently. Tebow has had some mild success recently because they've put in place a ridiculous college system that plays to his limited abilities. He may win a couple of games until defenses adjust, but it is doing nothing to advance his abilities as a QB.

The thing is, he doesn't actually have any abilities as a QB. He shotputs the ball downfield like a musclebound but uncoordinated offensive lineman might. He should be playing tight end or fullback.

Painter has plenty of legitimate QB skills does - the fact that he appears to have lost his mind recently doesn't change that. PLEASE will someone put Tebow out of our misery. It's just ridiculous that he gets so much national attention for so little reason.

as expected most people said Tebow.

One thing these people refuse to realize is that Tebow wins because his team wants to win and plays hard for 60 mins. Tebow himself is one of the worst QB's in the history of the NFL.

Painter is a better QB than Tebow. Period.

Last season Tebow took over a 3-10 team, and went 2-1 in the last 3 games.

This season Tebow took over a 1-4 team, and has gone 3-1 since.

You all can't really believe that the spread option is a long term viable offense can you?

In a few weeks when some more film gets out on the Broncos they're going to start getting shut out. This is just like the wildcat. It took the league by storm for about 2/3 months because no one had any film on the single wing. But how many teams run the wildcat now?

It's a gimmick. And like all gimmicks, it's time will pass.

and you obviously have trouble reading or understanding the OP's question.

He said from talent perspective, not wins.

Tebow has 0 talent. None. He is not even close to Painter.

the OP said strictly from the talent perspective. Teebow played very poorly tonight, but his will to win and his team's will to win is what matters.

But as far as QB goes, Teebow is still bad.

Who has less talent is questionable. Did you see the game last week? Painter's accuracy was brutal. Tebow may have worse mechanics, but that doesn't mean he is less talented. Talent-wise, I think the edge goes to Tebow. Overall, the better QB is Tebow because he wins. As a team, the Broncos have way less talent than the Colts, but Tebow has led them to 4-1 in his last 5 starts while Painter has 0 wins as a starter.

Tebow also has a coach that is willing to adjust to his talents. They don't have him out there running the exact same offense as Kyle Orton was. Yet Caldwell & Clyde foolishly have Paitner trying to run Manning's offense that it has taken him 13 years to cultivate as opposed to installing a package that is better suited for Painter.

With that said, Tebow is far closer to Orton than Painter is to Manning, but the point is that this coaching staff, the worst in the NFL for that matter has failed each of the quarterbacks that we have put on the field this season.

    • Sure, but it's an easy early indicator. In pure record, we rank 9th. Like I said, some use record + SoS, some predicted DVOA. Regardless, we're bottom 16. Haven't seen a rank that puts up in the top half yet. As long as we have 4 games against Jax and Houston, it'll be hard. Our early stretch is rough, our late stretch is easy. Middle is up and down.   Vegas really doesn't do that though. They'll do record prediction more on a combo of eye test experts, analytics, plus what their experts think will be betting trends. Vegas does get very analytical, but they are not concerned with being accurate lol. Only the dolla dolla bills yo,    
    • Strength of schedule based on last year records is not great. Too much turnover and changes year to year. Vegas lines or some sort of advanced analytics projections are probably better for SoS.   Here's one based on Vegas over unders: https://theathletic.com/news/nfl-strength-of-schedule-steelers-raiders-seahawks-lions-bengals/wa372YuigYZB   This one thinks we with the 5th easiest schedule.
    • Taking a break from NBA (Pacers stink BTW lol), and deep diving the Colts Schedule (will likely post something tomorrow)...  With all the talk on OL, extensions, etc, decided to quickly take a look at our OL and projections, and compare to other teams.   TLDR General Notes Colts Highest NFL OL spend already at 53.3M (prior to extensions), and 28% of salary cap (assumes Fisher's 9.4 is in 2021) Projections Nelson - 18M (+12M) - highest paid LG Smith - 16M (+14M) - top 3 paid RT If both are extended this year, Indy would be spending 79M on OL, and 27ish M more than the next NFL team. If the salary cap goes up to 200M next year (from 188M this year), Colts could be spending nearly 40% of the cap on OL if they simply resign Glow for the same, and that doesn't count a raise for Fisher if they choose to resign. If Fisher recovers, he's likely to get 15M or more next year, pushing the yearly up (+5 or more) even more. Glow, while a bargain IMO, and the best weak link in the NFL, is still making top 10 money. He's in a contract year. See SB teams spend and performance rank farther below.  NFL Position High, Position 10th LT: Top 23M/Y, 10th 14.75M/Y Fisher: 17th (9.4M) LG: Top 16M/Y, 10th 6.0M Nelson: 10th (6.0M) OC: Top 12.5/Y, 10th 9.0M/Y Kelly: 2nd (12.4M) RG: Top 18M/Y, 10th 5M/Y Glow: 9th (5.4M) RT: Top 18M/Y, 10th 8M/Y Smith: 44th (1.8M) Other T: Tevi (2.5M), Davenport (1.1M), Holden (0.8M), Od'Donnell (0.7M) Other G: Reed (1.3M), Fries (0.9M), Elderkamp (0.9M) Other C: Hunt (1.0M), Pinter (0.9M) Current Top 5 OL spending 2021 / 2020 spending rank / 2020 OL Rank 1.

    • Adam Shefter is reporting that it's a one-year deal at $9.4 million. There may be some cap management voodoo going on with it though, so the details could still be a bit murky. If he comes back close to his Pro Bowl form, it's a bargain, and if not, there isn't any long-term cap damage. I think he is certainly worth the gamble.
    • Yup, tough opening stretch, but easy closing stretch.  I'm Ok with that.
