Photos: Tim Tebow vs. Tom Brady, an intangibles point-counterpoint
This weekend brings Tim Tebow's biggest test as starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos -- a faceoff with the New England Patriots, starring Tom Brady, a surefire Hall of Famer who belongs in the Greatest Quarterback of All-Time conversation. But while Brady's experience and QB skills are undoubtedly superior to Timmy's at this point, what about their intangibles? Who comes out on top when they're measured? We put them to the test below.

Counterpoint: Tim Tebow is a very attractive man -- and he hasn't made the sort of quizzical hairstyle gaffes Brady has.
