The debate over where Tim Tebow ranks among the greatest players continues



There are nine days remaining before Florida quarterback Tim Tebow takes the field for his final season, but the debate over where Tebow will ultimately rank among college football players is in full swing.

I wrote a story for the Times on Aug. 9 talking to longtime football analysts about Tebow's place among the greatest players..

But's Stewart Mandel has put together a formula, focusing on quarterbacks of the past 25 years, using a fantasy-football type scoring system. Tebow comes out third - with still one season remaining to play. Whether you think Tebow is a great player or not, Mandel's story is quite interesting. Check it out here.

And for an opposing viewpoint, there's is the AJC's Mark Bradley who casts his vote for Herschel Walker.
