Josh Freeman Is Smarter Than Tim Tebow

March 11th, 2010

This one’s for all those Gators fans out there who would rather have Tim Tebow than Josh Freeman quarterbacking the Bucs in 2010.

Yep, Joe actually met a few of those alleged Bucs fans while playing in a charity poker tournament on Saturday night.

As the Wonderlic test scores of this year’s quarterback class trickle out in the media, Joe can’t help but mention that Tim Tebow scored a 22 on the famed intelligence and aptitude exam, and Josh Freeman cranked out a 27 last year when he was a year younger than Mr. Tebow.

Meaningless? Yes.

But it is a colorful comeback to lob at annoying Gator fan at your local watering hole.

    ill take a winner over a genius anyday

    I’d take a Heisman & 2 National Championships over a Wonderlic score. Dan Marino scored a 13, so that test is truely meaningless.

    I meant to say Freeman >> Tebow.

  5. OAR Says:

    “annoying Gator fan”? Aren’t all college fans annoying?

  6. Jonny Says:

    Those annoying Gator fans are here Joe, watch out when you’re in public.

    Funny article, another reason to pick on Gator fans since the Crimson stampede, I’ll take it!

  7. Big Daddy Says:

    Ill take Tebow if he is still around in the 4th or 5th. Let them compete!

  8. Marc Says:

    Haha tebow over Freeman are you people serious? Tebow blows!!! I cant wait to see him get beat down next year!

  9. Marc Says:

    Winning the Hiesman and National Championship in college dosne’nt make you great either. Can someone say Danny Wuerffel???

  10. Marc Says:

    make you a great pro**

  11. Louie Says:

    Hey, don’t laugh. If the Glazerhouse’s think they can make more money by drafting Tebow, they’ll do it.

  12. JDouble Says:

    No they won’t, but some team will in the 2nd round. Tebow won’t see the field for atleast two years though.

    jaycor “I will take a winner over a genius anyday”

    Tebow has not won a single game in NFL despite being older than Freeman. Who is the winner here?

  15. Harris Says:

    You tryin to tell me Jesus Christ can’t read the blitz

  16. OAR Says:

    Jonny, Freeman only has 3 NFL wins more than me or you, lol! Besides what did Freeman lead the Kansas to? Nada!

  17. Louie Says:

    @JDouble: “Tebow won’t see the field for at least two years…”. That’s EXACTLY what they were saying about Freeman last year!

    If Tebow goes somewhere like New England and was forced to play in his first year, who would be favored if they played the Bucs? Remember Freeman has very few weapons right now.

    I’m not saying Tebow is going to be good, I’m just saying if he goes to the right team he has a chance to be decent.

    Marc, Is that the same Danny Wiffel that was on the “great” Ditka Saints in 97-99? You know, the Saints that played 2-3 different qb’s in a year like Kerry Collins, Billy joe Tolliver, D Wiffel, Billy Joe Hobert, Heath Schuler, and even Jake Delhomme.
    The same one that was behind Farve and Matt Hasslebeck in GB? Or the sam Wiffel that was behind Miller and Matthews for Da Bears? Or the same one that Spurrier thought could get it done after 5 wasted years in the NFL? Just wondering?

    Roll Tide Roll…

  21. Jonny Says:

    OAR, Freeman was not part of a glamorous football factory that surrounded him with great weapons and the best coaching staff. Like Tebow he did very well against teams like Fla-Atlantic, but choked against good competition because of his team. Atleast he is not a bible thumper and does not cry while losing.

  22. Eric Says:

    I wonder if he cried like a school child when he found out about his score………………..

  23. Joseph Says:

    Joe, Gator fan here and Bucs fan too. Not to mention, big fan (and subscriber) of your website as well. We’re not all annoying. The Tebow thing is just fun banter since none of us can predict the future and it’s entirely up to him to create his own destiny wherever he goes. Good kid. Proven winner in college. Wish him the best. Don’t want the Bucs to draft him. Not because I dislike Tebow, but because we got Freeman (who hasn’t proven much yet) with our 1st round pick. We need to focus on Freeman and develop him properly. Let other teams worry about Tebow.

  24. OAR Says:

    Jonny, “Atleast he is not a bible thumper and does not cry while losing.” I guess that’s why Dungy said he’d use a 1st rnd draft pick fon Tebow. Thanks, always wondered about that.

  25. Eric Says:

    I can’t decide who is more delusional, Tebow fans or those who believe the Bucs “plan” is going to work.

  26. d-money Says:


    Tebow is a good kid. Being a “bible thumper” as you call him has nothing to do with his ability to play football.

    And I have seen plenty of NFL’ers cry on the sidelines after losing championships.

  27. OAR Says:

    d-money, We better stop or Jonny will go cry.

  28. Jonny Says:

    OAR, so if Dungy did not have a QB to his team you think he would pick Tebow over Freeman?

  29. Jonny Says:

    OAR, never mind, Dungy said he would pick him over Bradford and Clausen, just read the article and laughed.

  30. OAR Says:

    Jonny, First, I’m gald you got a laugh. Dungy would be pleased. Second, I personally think Indy would be one of the few great fits for Tebow. Learn under Manning for a couple of years and guess what team uses the shotgun formation the most in the NFL? Need a hint?
    BTW Were you one of the ones that didn’t think we should have drafted(moved up even) to get Freeman or one of the idiots?

  31. Jonny Says:

    My first preference was Brian Cushing, next was Josh Freeman. Cushing was gone before our chance came and I loved the Freeman pick, What all this has to do with discussion is beyond me.

    About Dungy’s comment, he said that from St. Louis’ perspective, that he would pick Tebow with a high pick in the 1st round. There is no GM/HC out there that has the balls to pick Tebow with no.1 overall pick, proof? Look how the draft goes this April.

    Dungy’s comment is laughable at best, it is ironic coming from a guy that got fired here in Tampa for not producing an offense that could score two touchdowns.

  32. OAR Says:

    Jonny, While I wasn’t a huge Dungy fan, Im sure he knows football and it’s players. And don’t think for a minute that I think Tebow is worht a high first round pick. Low 1st to 3 round, but what do I know just a football fan like you with a different opinion. I just find it funny how all you Gator haters or Tebow haters think.
    “What all this has to do with discussion is beyond me.” Really you sure had one of the first of many posts, lol.
    Let me ask you another question would you laugh in the face of Dungy, Wysche, or any other coach or former coach that has said he thinks Tebow will succeed in the NFL? I don’t think so.

  33. Eric Says:

    Now that the Wonderlic has demonstrated that Tebow is stupid, perhaps he does fit in with the grand plan. The Dream might want to take a second look at this guy.

  34. Jonny Says:

    “Let me ask you another question would you laugh in the face of Dungy, Wysche, or any other coach or former coach that has said he thinks Tebow will succeed in the NFL? I don’t think so.”

    No I would not laugh, because I think Tebow CAN succeed in the NFL, IF he is given the right coaching and the time to get ready, that is a big IF. BTW, Since when has this argument become Tebow succeeding in NFL? We are comparing Tebow to Freeman, aren’t we?

    But if Dungy said he would pick Tebow with 1st pick overall as St. Louis Rams head coach, I would be alarmed if I was a Rams fan. I would say “you’ve gotta be kidding me Tony” if I were a fan of any other franchise except Bucs for what he has done here.

    As a prospect Josh Freeman was 1st round grade, Tebow is 4th round grade. Can he succeed in NFL? Certainly. Who will I risk my 1st round pick on? Obviously Josh Freeman.

  35. RastaMon Says:

    did not Freeman go to Kansas….

  36. jlynch1340 Says:

    Leftwich had a high wonderlic score too. Its got nothing to do with football smarts.

  37. Eric Says:

    Just because Tebow is really stupid and can’t throw, doesn’t mean he wont make it as a QB in the NFL.

  38. FuNkYxMuNkeY Says:

    Who cares about this test. Vince Young had maybe the worst all time and all he does is go out and win. Farve had the same test results as Tebow and I think he turned out ok. As long as Tampa doesn’t waste even a 4th round pick on him I’m good. We don’t need to put that in Freeman’s head. He is our Franchise and we need to treat him that way.

  39. Radio Mushmouth Says:

    ALL football players are half retarded…who are we kidding ??

  40. FuNkYxMuNkeY Says:

    I know right. They get pushed through school without doing any work. I went to high school with a guy who played WR at Duke. He never took a test, never did homework, just smoked pot and had fun the whole time. He got into Duke because of football. He literally did not take a test his last two years in high school. That’s how it is. Antonio Cromartie could not even read for God’s sake. That embarassing for the school system and those teachers and coaches should feel ashamed that all they care about is winning and not the kid’s overall learning!!

  41. Eric Says:

    If I didn’t know better, I might conclude that his 3.6 GPA was a bit of a farce.

  42. tampa2 Says:

    Joe, it’s not in the head, it’s in the heart. Look at Radio! They made him a head Coach!

  43. FuNkYxMuNkeY Says:

    Has anyone heard what is going on with the Safety Jones we brought in today???

    And…why aren’t we looking into Lito Sheppard. He is the best CB available and we need help. All we have is Talib. Rhonde is past his time as a number 2 CB. We need to sign the safety, Lito, and draft Okung!!!

    We then need to trade our first rounder next year to trade back into the 1st round and get another stud. Maybe Graham, Weatherspoon, Spiller…Just my thoughts!!

  44. Eric Says:

    Just think how lively the discussions could be if the bucs actually did something to report on!

    Never have so few did so little for so many……………..

  45. OAR Says:

    Jonny, “Since when has this argument become Tebow succeeding in NFL?” Short term memory loss? “Tebow has not won a single game in NFL despite being older than Freeman. Who is the winner here?”

  46. Jonny Says:

    OAR, I suggest you to improve your reading skills. I said Tebow “HAS NOT” won, not “WILL NOT” win.

  47. OAR Says:

    I say tomatoe, you say tomotoe. It still opened up the discussion of whether he would or not compared to Freeman’s 3 wins, but whatever.

  48. Jonny Says:


    OAR, I am not against Tebow, I won’t say I want him to succeed or fail in NFL, honestly I don’t even care about him. I run into so many people every day that suggest Tebow should be #3 pick and Bucs should “release” Freeman. That kind of absolute stupidity is what makes me sound like a Tebow-hater.
