Who has the advantage? Tebow or Mallet?

Jeremy Fowler weighs in:


RyanMallett Arm strength: Advantage Mallett. Many experts have said Mallett has the best arm in the country.

On the run: Advantage Tebow. Nobody’s better in short yardage. Mallett is a pure pocket guy.

Poise: Advantage Tebow. He hardly gets flustered and manages the game better than almost anybody.

Scoring ability: Advantage Mallett, who has 13 touchdown passes for an offense that’s 20-for-20 in the red zone – 14 touchdowns, six field goals.
Tim TebowFSUclay
Size: Advantage Mallett. Tebow’s got a little more bulk, but Mallett has four inches on Tebow at 6-foot-7.

Accuracy: Advantage Tebow. It’s hard to complain with 13 interceptions in 765 career passing attempts. Mallett completes less than 60 percent of his passes.

Intangibles: Advantage Tebow. If you have to bet on one quarterback in the SEC to win a game, Tebow’s undoubtedly the guy.

VERDICT: Tebow edges Mallett 4-3. As usual, Tebow is not denied. Now he must validate this claim on Saturday.
