A thought occurred to me last night as I watched the Chosen One win another game with what might be the most irritating play of all time, the jump pass:
Stafford and Tebow have been compared to one another since they started their college careers, which was natural since they were ranked either the number 1, 2, or 3 QB depending on which recruiting site you checked, and they wound up playing for rival schools.
I don't think that anyone would argue that Tebow has had a more successful college career than Stafford (and if you would, you are a hopeless homer and I salute you).
Stafford has had to watch as Tebow gathered all of the honors that he himself no doubt dreamed of when he enrolled at UGA: a Heisman, a NC (not two, Tebowites; the first one was Leak's), and of course, the constant tongue-bathing of his scrotal area by assorted members of the press. Stafford has always done an admirable job maintaining that he admires Tebow's ability and that Heismans and NC aren't really that important to him, but you have to think Tebow's success and his (relative) lack of it bothers him.
Tebow, on the other hand, despite all of his accolades and accomplishments and media adoration, apparently still can't break into the 1st or 2nd rounds of the draft. There's no question that this bothers him, as evidenced by his confrontation with Todd McShay (or whatever recruiting guru it was) about why he would be drafted so low.
My thought was this: Do you think it bugs Stafford more that he didn't have Tebow's success, or do you think it bugs Tebow more that he (probably) won't be drafted as high as Stafford?
