Bobby Bowden: Charlie Ward Better Than Tim Tebow

August 20th, 2009 | by Ethan Jaynes |

Bobby Bowden: Charlie Ward Better Than Tim Tebow. In the words of Denzel Washington, from his outstanding role in ‘Remember The Titans’, Coach Bobby Bowden “You gots to be outside your mind!“. I agree with FanIQ. This is proof that Booby Bowden needs to retire. I have said this several times on this blog and other places, Tim Tebow is the best QB to ever play college football. Now Bobby B says that Timmy T might not even be the best QB to come out of Florida.

Bowden: “People keep asking me about Tebow. You know, is he the best ever? I don’t know if he’s better than Charlie. I don’t think he runs better than Charlie. I don’t think he throws better than Charlie. And Charlie only played two years for us.

Here are a few stats, and remember that Tebow has another year left to play.

  • TD/Interception ratio = Tebow 67-11, Ward 49-22
  • Rushing Yards= Tebow 2037, Ward 889
  • Rushing TD’s = Tebow 43, Ward 10

Tebow still has a year to go, and he far eclipses Ward’s numbers. You might say that Ward only played 2 years, but Tebow only played 2 full years. He came off the bench just for running in his Freshman year. I’ll put it this way, if Bobby Bowden made this statement at your local water cooler at work, he would be banned from all future speaking arrangements at said water cooler, even Tallahassee Florida water coolers.

    Live in your fairy land. Charlie played two years of actual quarterback. Let’s compare his senior year against Tebow’s and judge then. As for the rushing yards, please. How many rushing plays were ever designed for Ward and let’s compare how many carries Seminole running backs have vs. Florida’s. It’s apples to oranges. Tebow’s a fullback playing quarterback because his coach wants to be looked at as some kind of offensive genius or they don’t have anyone that can shot put the ball better at quarterback.

    He NEVER said definitively that Ward was better than Tebow. This was an “off the cuff” response. I seriously doubt Bowden would have said” hey wait a minute let me look up the stats first.” You are taking his comments wayyy too far out of context…

    Charlie played 6 top 25 teams, 4 of them top 10 teams and was 5-1 against them. He went to FSU to be the punter and ended up with a heisman.
    You cannot discount Tebow’s freshman year where he walked in to the national champion team, and was put in on the 5 yard line in every game for nothing except to pad his stats. His sophomore year he played very well and deserved that heisman, but since he’s been very mediocre…could it be that it was really percy harvin (who is having a rookie of the year season in minnesota) that really made his passing stats look so good? I don’t see how anyone can legitimately consider tebow a quarter back when he is really no big a threat passing the ball then any of the running backs on the roster. Unfortunately that cannot be disproven, because I don’t know if any of the running backs of florida’s team have actually seen the field this year. ONly room for one big white running back on this team.
