This analysis from Deadspin's Jack Dickey captures a lot of what I was thinking yesterday as I read the troll-ish column from ESPN's Bryant and the very interesting counter from FoxSports.com's Kriegel. If you adjust for Tebow's impact on a "per-touch" rather than "per-pass-attempt" basis, he is having not just a fine season, but a very very good one.
That doesn't even include his impact on Willis McGahee, the fact that his limited turnovers and clock-eating drives keep the defense rested, improving its already-terrific efficiency.
Is it a backlash to the backlash? Or, at this point, a backlash to the backlash to the backlash to the backlash?
