Tim Tebow to get first NFL start in 'Black Hole'?

Tim Tebow is going to get his first NFL start this Sunday.

That's according to a report from Adam Schefter of ESPN, who says the Broncos plan to make Tebow their starting quarterback for Sunday's matchup in Oakland.

It's a stunning move made not-quite-as-stunning because of the events that led up to this game. Kyle Orton's dealing with a "rib injury" (or something), and Eric Studesville refused to mention that Tebow would start on Wednesday (and then refused to say it again on Friday, even though Orton was limited).

In other words, provided the Broncos eventually make this official and give Tebow the nod (sometime later Saturday seems like the right moment), we're looking a new era in Denver. Or something -- Tebow could go down in flames like Denver's season and become completely untradable. Of course, it's just as likely that he torches the Raiders and then subsequently the Texans, becomes a franchise quarterback and brings championship football back to Denver.

Okay, that's not quite as likely. But Tebow starting adds a bit of spice to a game that appeared a touch bland before Sunday's action began.

All you Tewbow haters have to admit Tewbow that Tewbow is the opposite of what the McDaniels legacy has letf the Broncos.

I thought Tebow WAS the McDaniels legacy.  The most memorable thing that happened on McDaniels' watch was taking the risk to draft Tebow, and likely all that McDaniels will be remembered for.  Like it or not, every time you watch Tebow, you're watching McDaniels at work.

Tebow may be the most selfish player in college football history.
how????
No one called his own number more then Timmy-boy and he consistently failed to get his teammates involved. 
uh, he didnt call the plays in college, the coach called the plays, the only time he chose to ran himself is when the play broke down.
People don't hate him because of his faith, they hate him because of his overexposure and the hype that falls far short of his performance. 
actually, different people have different reasons, some hate him for his hype (understandable, but i have seen other players hyped way too much as well), BUT i disagree with you on part of what you said because i have read some posts and SOME dont like him because of how he expresses his religion, which i find a dumb reason to not like him.

I'm only a casual fan of college football, no fan of the SEC, so I don't think Tebow walks on water. Your telling us even though his coach wanted to run other plays, for 4 years Tebow did what he wanted and ran the ball game after game because he is a me,me,me before the team guy ? Sounds like his team beat your team more than once and you're a hater!

And stop with the intangibles crap  you can't get to the NFL without a work ethic and everyone there wants to win.  Also, that winner reputation is way overrated.  In three years as a starter at Florida he won the same number of SEC Championship as Terry Dean, Rex Grossman and Chris Leak - one.  Unless you are putting those guys in the "great winner" category, don't put Timmy there, either.
