Just who is Tim Dahlberg? ("Tebow out of time," Jan. 7) Certainly not someone who knows much about logic. Certainly not someone who can see the big picture. Very possibly not someone who is nice.

Tebow inherits a team at 1-4, as virtually a rookie replacing a veteran. What are his marching orders? Answer: Get us into the playoffs. (Aside: If he goes 6-8, he will do well.) So, he takes the Broncos to 8-8 and into the playoffs by a combination of miracles, by inspiring his teammates, by intimidating the other teams, and by great play when it was necessary. Mostly he does everything the team, the coach, the administration and the fans need.

And what is his reward from the suave and clever Dahlberg in his unlimited wisdom? "He is the worst quarterback in the NFL." Well, he was during the last game; otherwise, he, again, gave everybody everything they needed! He played bad when it essentially did not matter, and, when it did matter, he got the job done, the entire job.

Bug off, Dahlberg. Go to school, or try a different profession!

James Ivey,

Gainesville
