Florio: Anybody Would Pick Tebow over Hanie

(WSCR) After the Bears’ 13-10 overtime loss to the Broncos on Sunday, linebacker Brian Urlacher had some interesting comments about the Broncos signal caller.

“He’s a good running back, man,” Urlacher said about Tim Tebow. “He runs the ball well. They have a good offense. They do some different plays we don’t see. I thought we did a good job overall defending the unusual plays.”

The subtle dig at Tebow didn’t sit well with one NFL expert.

“You shouldn’t be taking a shot at Tebow when, No. 1, he’s beaten you,” Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk told The McNeil and Spiegel Show. “No. 2, if you ask anybody around the NFL right: ‘Who would you rather have playing quarterback for your team — Tim Tebow or Caleb Hanie?’ If anybody says Caleb Hanie, they’re lying.”

    As much as Urlacher was unprofessional in his post game comments, his was more understandable as he was quoted immediately after an emotional loss. Florio’s shot at Hanie is completely uncalled for and unprofessional. Really disappointing journalism from an otherwise seemingly level headed guy. No reason to stoop to that level.

    a.) Hanie wasn’t a first rounder b.) Tebow actually has an offensive line. He had all day in the pocket c.) Tebow would be absolutely pitiful in the Martz offense, and if he were here right now, I’d be willing to bet my left testicle that he would just look like a much more expensive Hanie

    Urlacher should have said somthing inteligent like we sucked on defence and Tim Tebow torched us!

    I dont blame Caleb Hanie for the 3 losses I blame Angelo Lovie Smith Mike Martz and Rod Marineli The cover 2 does not work against Denver and it will never work against Arron Rodgers and The Greenbay Packers Rodgers will throw underneath it every time and move the chains.Caleb Hanie is a 3rd string QB being thrown to the wolves with that pathetic angelo offensive line.The Bears need to Fire Angelo for sure and Lovie Smith.Lovie is set in his ways and it wont get better it will just be more failures on down the road get smart McCaskeys get a new GM and Get Bill Cower if you really want a Super Bowl Ring your going nowhere with this bunch!
