How will Tim Tebow fare against the Lions and Ndamukong Suh?

Next for the Detroit Lions: A front-row seat at the Tim Tebow show.

Tebow, the former Heisman Trophy-winning Florida quarterback and now the starting QB for the Denver Broncos, is one of the hottest topics in the NFL.

The central question: Can a 235-pound scrambling quarterback with questionable arm strength make it as a starting quarterback in the NFL? Denver Post columnist Mark Kiszla says Tebow isn't a long-term answer, and he believe Ndamukong Suh and the Lions could point this out on Sunday.

From Kiszla:

Heaven help Tebow if he gets smacked upside the head by Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh, quickly growing a reputation as the baddest thing to roll out of Detroit since an Eminem rhyme. One shot by Suh could rescramble the brain of Tebow and Denver's depth chart at quarterback faster than you can say ouch. The take-no-prisoners approach Tebow brings to the field hits defensive players in the ego and makes them extremely agitated.
