Because I'm not calling Tebow a great QB. I'm just saying he's a better option that Sanchez right now.
Also, I never bashed Griffin's ability to run. What I said was that once teams start to take his rushing ability away his game is going to level off. Earlier this year, he was overachieving because teams didn't know what to do with him. I mean, you can already see his stats tailing off the last two games as teams get more looks at him. His completion%, passing yards, QB rating, and yards per carry are all down the last two weeks. He hasn't run for a TD in 3 weeks and he only has 1 passing TD in the last two. Plus the Redskins have dropped 3 straight. Granted 2-3 games is a very small sample size but I think the trend will continue for the rest of the season based on years of watching defenses adjust to rookie QBs.
Not to mention, Tebow can take the hits because of his frame and he's not a franchise QB. If Griffin continues to run the way he does, he's going to have an injury plagued career and the Redskins will be very disappointed.
