Tebow move the only one for Denver to make

The Broncos' move to Tim Tebow is a no-brainer, unless, of course, you're Brady Quinn. Say, wasn't he the second quarterback on the depth chart?

Yeah, well, no matter. He's not signed through next season. Neither is Kyle Orton. But Tim Tebow is.

So now that the season is going south, why not find out about the one quarterback linked to 2012? I mean, sooner or later you have to get a read on the guy, right? It might as well be sooner.

Look, I don't know if Tebow can play at this level, but I know what I saw Sunday ... and what I saw is what coach John Fox saw: A spark. So it might have been the result of the Chargers being unprepared for a quarterback who is vastly different from Orton, I don't know. But, frankly, I don't care.

The Broncos need a lift. Tebow gave them one Sunday. So why not give him a chance to give them one again?

Maybe it happens, and Tebow becomes the player Josh McDaniels envisioned when he made him a first-round draft pick. Then again, maybe it doesn't. Maybe he craters the next month and does nothing for the team, himself and his legions of supporters.

So what? At least you've gotten a read on the guy; at least you know where you're going with him, and that could be nowhere. But better to find out now.

I mean, what do you have to lose? Another game? Big deal. You learn something invaluable in the process. You learn where you must go next at the most important position on the field.

Tebow move the only one for Denver to make

Orton and Quinn haven't won anywhere outside of college ala Tebow.
This is just the kind of stupidity and ignorance by so-called that brings the heat onto Tebow. Why are you hurting Tebow like this? If you don't know what you're talking about, shut up and stop reflecting poorly on the person you're suposed to a fan of.

Before Kyle Orton came to the Broncos, he had a record of 21-12 as a starter. It took 2 and 1/4 years of being the only productive player on the roster of the most godawful team I've seen in decades to sink his record below a winning one.

Just root for your payer and stop trying to argue in his favor. You're only making yourself look stupid and Tebow look pitiable for having fans like you.

Tebow move the only one for Denver to make

Jeff George, Ryan Leaf, Matt Leinhart, Jamarcus Russell, etc.
All of those guys were egomaniacs, lazy, or both coming out of college.  Using them as a comparison is insulting to Montana and Manning.

Tebow move the only one for Denver to make

Worst Case: He's terrible and Andrew Luck is starting in Denver next year
That's not worst case.  Worst case is Tebow's terrible, but Indy finishes with a worse record.

Quinn was the team doc for Carolina.

I think they nicknamed her Medicine Woman.

Experts arent always right

OK, so Tim Tebow can't stay in the pocket and play QB in the NFL the same way Dan Fouts did.  He probably cant run as often as he did in college and stay healthy, or get as many yards.  However, that doesnt mean that an offense cant be developed with him at QB.

The so called experts didnt think Warren Moon was smart enough or Doug Flutie tall enough, so they went off to Canada, only to return to the NFL where the new experts talked about how good they were.

The so called experts had Ryan Leaf and Tim Couch as can't miss prospects.  Brady went in the 6th round.  Guys named Eason and Blackledge went before Marino.

Tebow reminds me a lot of Vince Young, a winner without the tools of a classic QB, but with a lot of other intangibles.  Young did well for a bit and now is unproven and unknown again. 

The prototypes for RBs and TEs have changed over the years.  Tebow has been a winner.  Orton has been struggling.   Lets see before we say we know....

Tebow move the only one for Denver to make

I thought at the end of last season Denver was preparing to turn the team over to Tebow.  Enter the genius John Fox who disregards the talent, guts, heart, the contract on the bench not to mention the fans of Denver wishes.  Orton and Quinn haven't won anywhere outside of college ala Tebow.  So why not give TT the team.  The season is history lets see what the kid can do.  How long did Denver suffer with Elway before he could read defenses and make the smart decision....4 years 5 years?  Only until Elways last 2 years did Denver make it to the promised land.  Orton has had his chance in Chicago and Denver.  Quinn in Cleveland and carolina.  Enough already...get ready for TT who has more will and more heart than the 2 other QB's on the depth chart combined.

wydwakr420 has the Denver playbook. I will say in Tebow's defense, he is a great competitor. His style, day-in-and-day-out is not right for the NFL in the long run, but in the short run he can fill seats. So Denver fills the stadium, and stay in the hunt for Luck. Win-Win.

Tebow move the only one for Denver to make

The only move for Denver is to trade Tebow so they can blow that controversy out of town. Then try Brady Quinn out. If he falls on his face, stick Orton back in and make a move for Luck next year if need be. This Tebow crap wont go away until HE goes away. When Denver gets a real QB and starts winning again, those Tebowites will all come running back while Timmy is holding a clipboard for his new team. Denver, trade or cut Tebow and cut your losses now. Time to move on from a mistake.
