Match-Up: Tim Tebow vs. Johnny Manziel The War: Who’s Better? Match-Up Preview: Two of College Football & Pop Culture Icons! Tim Tebow used super human determination and incredible heart to become arguably the greatest college football of all-time. In one and a half season time, Johnny “Johnny Football” Manziel has used his knack for big plays and improvisation skills to because the most famous college player since Reggie Bush. One player is already proven winner not only on the football field, but in life. The other is already a Texas legend, but we might only be scratching the surface on what this kid can really do. Today, Kaboom! Magazine.com goes in-depth into both of the college careers of Tim Tebow and Johnny Maziel to find out the answer to arguably one of the toughest question in college football history…….Who’s Better? Tale of the Tape: Johnny-Manziel-Texas-AM-football-player-making-a-face_092428 Johnny Manziel AKA: Johnny Football Pos: QB Height: 6’1” Weight: 210 College: Texas A&M Career Highlights: 2012 SEC Freshmen of the Year, 2012 All-American, 2012 SEC Player of the Year, 2012 AP Player of the Year, 2012 All-SEC 1st Team, 2012 Davey O’Brien Award, 2012 Manning Award, 2012 Heisman Trophy Winner, and 2013 SEC Male Athlete of the Year. Strengths: College football this past decade has thrived with mobile quarterbacks, zone-read options and spread passing attacks. Johnny Manziel has continued that evolution with his “Billy the Kid” style of play on the football. Manziel is at his best on short and intermediate passes, completing more than 76 percent of his throws within 10 yards of the line of scrimmage. One of his greatest strengths is putting the ball in spots that enabled his receivers to run after the catch. Blitzing defenses have never stood a chance against “Manziel Magic” as he always been able to read them from a mile away. Slicker than a can of oil, Manziel biggest plays came when scrambling on busted plays; making a lot of something out of absolutely nothing. Manziel plays his best when the spotlight is at its brightest. In two games against Nick Saban and his No. 1 Alabama teams, Manziel the best games of his college career totaling over 800 passing yards, 150 rushing yards, and 7 TDs. Weakness: Johnny’s greatest strength is also is his greatest weakness…his need for fame. He wants to make the “Big Play” every time he throws the football…even when it’s unnecessary. Manziel is constantly getting caught trying to do too much during blown plays; which usually leads to huge loss in yardage or a costly interception. Manziel has shown drastic improvement as a pocket passer, but he still has a problem throwing the deep ball accurately. He tends to throw the ball with poor balance despite having time to set his feet. Manziel typically needs a receiver to be open in order to make a throw. He doesn’t often throw a receiver open or fit the ball into tight windows. alg-tebow-jpg Tim Tebow AKA: Tebow Pos: QB Height: 6’3” Weight: 236 College: Florida Career Highlights: 2× BCS National Champion, 2× SEC Champion, 2× First-team All-American, 3x All-SEC 1st Team, 2007 AP Player of the Year, 2007 Davey O’Brien Award, 2× Maxwell Award , 2008 SEC Offensive Player of the Year, 2008 Manning Award, 3x Heisman Trophy Finalist, and 2007 Heisman Trophy Winner. Strengths: Tim Tebow is arguably one of the best college quarterbacks of all-time. Tebow was an extremely smart quarterback who rarely made bad decisions. At 6’3 and 236 pounds, he is a load to bring down when he tucked it away and runs. He is deceptively nimble and elusive as well. No one was more competitive than Tim Tebow. His will and determination played a big part in most of Florida biggest victories throughout his career. During his Heisman season in 2007, Tebow became the 1st player to throw for more than 20 passing TDs and Run for more than 20 rushing TDs in a single-season. He was an outstanding leader and played against top NFL-like competition at Florida. Weakness: Tebow had a very strong arm, but his accuracy was very inconsistent over his career as he often ended up throwing the ball when on the move. He had a wind-up motion and it made his delivery slow and elongated. He’s never played in an offense that requires the quarterback to take the ball from under center. He’s also never had to read a defense or coverages while at Florida. Also with players around him like Percy Harvin, Aaron Hernandez, Riley Cooper, and Urban Meyer as his coach, many feel that Tebow was the ultimate overachiever. timtebow7 And the winner is……: Both men are defiantly college football icons and can lead any team to a championship. Tim Tebow had the greatest career in NCAA history, while Johnny Manziel single-handily led college football into the social media era. Both players performed well against SEC championship-caliber defenses, but if we had to choose one player to lead the troops it would have to be none other than……….Tim Tebow. Both men did play well against SEC defenses, but Tebow faced tougher SEC defenses than Johnny Manziel. Many feel that Manziel is the better passer, but statically it not by much. Manziel completed 68% of his passes while Tebow completed 66%. Both our great runners, but Tebow could run past you and through if he had too. In Tebow’s four years as a starter, he never threw more than six interceptions in a season. One of Tebow’s strengths has always been limiting turnovers and finding the endzone. Even as freshmen, Tebow was never questioned as leader of a team and had the work ethic that no one had ever seen. No one will ever again see the intensity and competitiveness that Tebow had on the football field. Losing was not an option for Tim Tebow and he put everything that he had into every game that he played. If both of these players were superheros Johnny Manziel would be considered Batman, while Tim Tebow would be considered as Superman. Do you Agree or Disagree with Kaboom! Magazine.com?
