All you need to know about the Florida Gators quarterback: Tim Tebow is better than your team's best player

Joseph Goodman has the story, but do you really need to read it? The title says it all.

Here's the final Q&A section:

ME: Tim, what are your thoughts on this [Thundercat] offense, because you're not really getting to throw the ball that often?

TIM: "Um, I think it's a good offense. I think we're 5-0 and I'm very happy with that. It doesn't matter if we score 13 points or two points as long as we, you know, win the game. That's all that matters and that's what I think we're trying to do right now -- is win games. Manage the offense and manage the team. Win games. That's my focus."

ME: As far as coming back for your senior year and hoping to prepare yourself for the NFL, maybe, you know, would you like to throw it around a little more?

TIM: "I don't think that's going to hurt me. Um, I don't think as far as -- um, you were saying NFL -- I don't think an NFL coach or a scout is going to say, 'Ah, you know, he did a bad job because he didn't throw.' No, he did what he was asked. They'll probably look at that and say, 'He did what he was asked to the best of his ability and he did it OK.' And that's what I'm hoping they'll say.

"I'm not too worried that I threw it 16 times or 62 times. I'm going to do whatever they call. Whatever I'm asked to do, I'm going to do it to the best of my ability and try to do it well."

Tebow is doing what he's asked better than anyone in the country. He is better than your team's best player.
