Elway says Tebow's not getting traded

On Sunday, Peter King made quite a stir when he reported during Football Night in America that Tim Tebow could potentially be on the trading block because a) Josh McDaniels would want his quarterback were the ex-Broncos coach to become employed again and b) John Elway told King he doesn't think Tebow is a "good quarterback."

Elway took to Twitter to make sure that everyone knew he wasn't lobbing Tebow out on the trading block just quite yet.

"To clarify my thoughts on Tim Tebow ... I think he's a very good football player, and if anyone can turn themselves into a great QB, Tim can," Elway tweeted. "Myself and our entire organization think very highly of him. We are pleased with his first year as a Bronco.

"Any speculation that the Denver Broncos are considering moving Tim is completely false."

Depending on who the Broncos hire as head coach, Tebow would work just fine (um, John Fox much?). Although there's a definitely a chance that the Broncos would move Tebow given the right price, Mike Klis of The Denver Post said it best -- "Tebow is a money-printing machine."

And if the Broncos can turn him into a good quarterback who happens to crank out merchandise and ticket sales, there's zero chance he'll ever leave Denver.

Why oh Why

Anytime someone makes a post as a Tebow lover, they always say the same things. Winner, leader, intangibles. Hey, how about intelligence, toughness, mechanics? It's like when asked why Tebow is going to be a decent QB, people can only point to some hocus pocus aura that surrounds the golden child. Please.... he's a bust and will NEVER be a good QB in the NFL.

Why so much emphasis on an individual player? One player will not win Denver a Superbowl. Denver needs structure and organization. Last I checked, the Broncos fired their coach... twice. They won't get better any time soon. Trading Tebow or keeping him... doesn't matter. Tebow is a 1st year player. He needs guidance and support. Elway needed Dan Reeves and Terrell Davis.. et. al. Look at Peyton Manning.

Elway would be a fool to let people believe he wants to get rid of Tebow. Tebow's value is critical to any future trade and Elway wants some leverage if another team shows interest. If Josh McDaniel ends up with an NFL team, that needs a QB, there is always the possibility that the team may talk to the Broncos.  Orton can get them through another year and I agree that Luck may be on Elways radar screen. Rumors have McDaniel possibly going to MN, where they've needed a franchise QB since Rcih Gannon left (14 starters in 18 years). I personally believe that Joe Webb will be a very good NFL QB with solid coaching but who knows with the Vikes.

Sorry, but I've yet to see a glimmer of hope that Tebow will become a top tier QB. He won't be terrible, just won't be great either. Kinda guy who stuggles to ever have more TDs than INT, only gets 250+ yards against sub-par teams, strong pass defense shuts him down...etc. I guess beggers can't be choosers and right now the Broncos are beggers.
