    Pretty sure the Jets are a playoff team. And the Bears and Raiders are both "contending" for playoff spots. So, that is a handful of them right there. He also beat a Chargers team that is still in the playoff hunt (though a longer shot than those mentioned).

    It is not like he is running around beating nobody but the Vikings and Colts. He has played plenty of decent teams. Just because he has not beaten the Packers, Saints, Patriots, Ravens or Steelers does not mean everything he has done doesn't count.

    In the hunt, but as of now, they are not in, and they also had bad streak of games for a while where they looked no better than a 6-10 team.

    My point exactly is to wait until he does play one of those elite teams, get smacked around, exposed and other teams will continue where they left off.

    it's not like Tebow is winning these games, his D is bailing him out (or in the bears game, Marion Barber and Prater won for him)

    Lets put it this way, 6 points were scored in that game off two field goals totalling 110 yards in combined distance.

    Actually ... the Jets are IN ... not in the hunt. They are the No. 6 seed right now. Teams always have up and downs. But he did win against THREE teams that are over .500 and CONTENDING for the playoffs.

    So QBs are only good if they beat the Packers, Saints, Patriots, Ravens and Steelers? All other wins are against bad teams?
    Edit: And the Raiders won three straight games when McFadden went out.
