Skip Bayless Says A Healthy Peyton Manning Is No Better Than Tim Tebow

Skip Says Johnny Football Will Be Bigger Than LeBron In Cleveland
Said in 2014, this couldn't be less accurate. Johnny Football isn't just out of Cleveland, he may never be back in the NFL. LeBron plays for the Cavs again and could potentially bring them a championship.

Skip Bayless Says He'd Rather Have Tebow In Crunch Time Than Rodgers
In 2011, Bayless said he's prefer Tebow late in a game over Aaron Rodgers. While Tebow is now out of the NFL, Super Bowl XLV MVP Rodgers has continued to be one of, if not the very best quarterback in the league.
You bet I'd take Tebow late in games over ARodg. Tebow: 4 game-winning drives in 9 starts. ARodg unproven late. Not enough opportunities yet— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) November 28, 2011
