I think most people in football would take it as a given that Tebow gets next offseason camp and a full season to lead this team. What I was trying to get at is a different mind-set. It's the difference between showing a couple of aces and betting high, or knowing you've got two more hidden and pushing all your chips into the middle of the table.

I'm sure the Bengals, for example, are planning the years to come around Dalton. The issue is settled, for them. At least, I can't imagine that it isn't. But because of the differences in Tebow's game, that decision is being drawn out and argued over in Denver (actually, all over the country). So I was curious to see where the OM members stand on the issue now. At the end of the season, I'll probably do it again. ;D

I guess I should have phrased the questions, would you now bet really high on Tebow, or go ahead and push every chip you've got out into the pot?

Ok. I understand now. I'll go all in. Just my personal opinion, and for what it's worth I'm "betting" tebow is the QBOF and who, assuming the talent is assembled, can win more than one Lombardi.

But, as a bronco fan, I know even if I'm wrong it's not the end of the world(-: The worse that happens is that he suddenly hit's his ceiling and teams figure out that unless they turn over the ball, we probably can't beat them. Den goes 6-10, and Elway finds a new horse to ride.

I expect a similar game plan against Da Bears. Like the Vikings, the Bears have a very good run defense and a very poor pass defense...

Bears are 30th against the pass, NE is 32nd. Similar plans the next 2 weeks, but we need Von back to keep the rush going, and we CAN"T get into a shootout against Brady and Co..

Unfortunately we had to show DT off a bit in the Minny game, but its all good as it gives teams another problem to worry about and it also means that Tebow can beat you with his arm which means antoher problem for defenses to consider.

We need Tebow to be effective throwing and finding open guys and McGahee to continue beast mode th enext two weeks. Royal dinged up is bad, so Fells and the TEs have to step up.

Not too worried about the Bears without Forte and Cutler, but Gronkowski is going to be the key to stopping NE.

NE's strength on D is the RunD. They've been the most consistent there.

yeah. I'm not gung ho about NE, and I certainly thought Lambchop would like Den up, but with him and Forte down .... I think Den's D might keep the score low.

I wanted Pouncey so I wasn't wrong, but definitely was this year when I wanted Dareus over Miller.

I wanted Dareus until right a couple days before the draft. I saw the sports science piece on Von Miller and was immediately sold.

Anyone have the new Madden? Von Miller has got to be like 99 ACC.

Whats with all the we talk? You got a turd in your pocket? Nobody is on your side you hyperventilating old dumb ass. What is my next brilliant draft assignment?? I'm assuming you meant assessment, but you are too ****ing stupid, and too ****ing blind to read and write a post that makes any sense. I don't think your a ****ing idiot because of your opinion, I think you're a ****ing idiot because of the stupid $hit that come out of your mouth. Being old doesn't make you smarter, in this case it has regressed your intelligence level you stupid old bastard.

It really pleases me to light a fire under your ass today. You know what Iím happier about? Winning.

For almost a month and half the Broncos have been winning, some of the games were not a thing of beauty at the time but are still wins. During that time weíve been subjected to post after post from guys like you, Roh, TGN, Rev, and Spider who had given up on the Broncos at game 6 of the NFL Season and had totally dismissed the idea of winning because of a personal hate and grudge for Tebow. This group was ready to throw in the towel and do whatís been done on this site for the last 5 years and thatís look to next yearís draft or next yearís QB. This year it started after game 5 of the NFL season, with 11, yes 11 games yet to be played.

I guess Iím different, when Tebow started his first game against the Fins I was just a fan being in the moment watching a game hoping my team would win one. I didnít have the TV remote in one hand and my iPhone in the other checking the latest college QBís statistics from the day before or trying to figure where the Broncos draft position would be if we lost to them.

The height of the insanity came when I saw a thread posted by Kaylore. Kaylore is one of the best posters on this board. Heís an intelligent even handed guy whoís as die hard as they get. But even he had been driven to think more of next year than this one with a thread that calculated what the Broncos losing percentage would be as it related to next yearís draft. Iím sorry that just goes beyond anything I could possibly image going into week 6 of an NFL Season

In the beginning I had my doubts about Tebow too. Today (And thatís what really matters) the guy is real live Clark Kent. As Kent Iím not sure heíll ever be a Superman which is fine with me, as long as he continues to improve and more importantly helps the team win I donít care what he does off the field.

I think the doubters and haters would much rather have a Dark Knight than a Clark Kent. A cerebral Batman type QB whoís a genius on the field and off it. Tebow isnít that complicated, his life is orderly and simple. He puts all of his love and faith in God 1st and then loves his family 2nd and lastly is completely devoted to being the best team football player he can be.

Personally I think those are qualities to be admired not hated. Weíve been subjected to a whole league full of thugs that have committing every terrible vice known to man and call it acceptable but we canít accept Tebow? He wears his faith on his sleeve and he comes from a very successful Florida program that sets him up to burned at the stake by a bunch of wolves who hate the idea of a goodie 2 shoes succeeding at anything let alone a QB of their team.

Winning supersedes all ills, winning breedís confidence; winning no matter how some of you would like to apologize for it or say itís a fluke is still winning. The wins in week 6 and 8 no matter how ugly they were will only matter because they bring the Broncos one game closer to winning the AFC West and a playoff berth.

Itís too bad more Broncos Fans canít get use to the idea of winning and Tebow as the QBOTF. Iím having the time of my life right now. I canít wait to see the Bears game. If the Broncos make the playoffs win or lose itíll go down in Broncos lore as one of the greatest seasonís ever in my book because so many had written them off and many of them are so called Broncos fans.

It's so funny seeing you post anything anymore. And your little boxed-in-comment is classic...perhaps you should add a further disclaimer or two.

And now back to the real point of the thread...

Long Term Answer?

I don't know how anyone can think Tebow isn't the long term answer much less deny that Tebow IS the long term answer. The real question is will the FO and the coaches GO ALL IN and is there enough talent throughout this team (FO - to - ballboy) to finish this year strong and make wise decisions during the offseason.

last night, I voted 'unsure', but couldn't really articulate why. Well, I've been thinking aboit it, and I think I know what I want to see: 60 minutes of good football. That's it. I want to see one complete game where the offense plays well from the opening possession until the final whistle. One game that doesn't require a pick-6. Onr game where the broncos take a lead into halftime, and then extend it. One game where Tebow completes easy and difficult throws all day, amd the offense hums like a finely tuned machine. One game with more offensive scores than punts.

I don't think this is too much to ask of a QBOTF. It's what NFL QB's are supposed to do, especially against inferior talent.

to be fair, i would of voted that Tebow was our next great QB.

I can understand why we felt Tebow was the answer at the time. but who would of thought we would sign the 2nd GOAT QB (Elway probably was banking on signing Manning). I bet our perspective would be different now if we hadn't sign Manning.

I don't see the point of bringing this back to life. Tebow had a pretty damn successful run here. It allowed a platform for us to get to where we are now. No reason to bash him or posters that enjoyed our resurgence during that time.

A painful admission is that the Tebow led Bronco teams probably would have played the Super Bowl vs. the Seahawks MUCH CLOSER than our all-star cast that showed up. (one could also argue that we probably would have never made it to the game with Tebow as well) SB48 would have been played faster, the clock would have ran more, the defense would have got more rest, we probably would have turned it over less and it would have ended up being a TD affair vs. a 35 pt beat-down that we got. Does it say Tebow is better than Manning? Nope. The style of game would have changed 100% and we probably would have matched up better on offense and defense. It would have been a field position game. We probably still would have lost but there are some x-factors that could have helped us as well, namely a running threat QB which is the Seabags weakness.

Nice with a balanced perspective. As lucky as we are having Manning in Denver, the Tebow led team had its own character. Tebow himself was flawed as a player and totally awesome when bullets were flying and something needed to happen.

None of us know if he would have fallen flat on his face in 2012 or developed into a very solid QB. I believe the latter at the drive/leadership was inspiring.

I love how you and a few select other geniuses seem to know better than all the coaches/ scouts and managers that Timmy just needs another chance......No ONE (who is in a position to hire him) agrees with you. Stop beating a dead horse.

Damn, I was wrong. which is rare. It only happens 1x every hour every day. :-) But I am okay being wrong because we got Peyton Manning, though I don't think there was a cause-effect connection there, just coincidence. I liked Tim. I still like Tim but yes I do like Manning as my QB better. Crazy that. Is the bump so we can be reminded that as we discuss Twilight's future we might be wrong?

This poll was RIGHT after the Vikings game. First, I think holding anyone to their opinions right after a game, win or lose, isn't fair. Tebow had arguably his most prolific day of the regular season. He was 10/15 for 200 yards and 2 TD's. He was coming off an OT win against the Chargers. Things were looking up. The next four games - Chicago, New England, Buffalo and Chiefs at home, all showcased that he had been figured out and had stopped progressing. Not being able to score more than one TD at home was damning. Two of those losses were embarrassing blowouts. If this poll had been put up at the end of the season things would have been very different.

Yup, I was thinking the exact same thing. We'd just won our 5th straight, and 6th of our last 7. "Tebow Magic" was near it's peak. I got sucked in. Most of us did. How could you not? His major flaws were masked by all the bewildering, intense euphoria.

11 out of the 12 that voted "no", voted after it was bumped. PaintballCLE was originally the only guy who voted no in 2011.

Yep that's what I did.


All this poll shows me is that people here back then gave him a chance. Most, not all, Realized after that he can't play QB in the NFL and came to terms with it. While a few still think he would perform better than Manning in an important game.

If this poll had been put up at the end of the season things would have been very different.

If the poll had been done when Tebow was still our starting QB, very few would have had a negative opinion and many more would have been neutral. 4th Q against Buffalo and the KC game in week 17 were total failure at QB, whereas the blowouts against Patriots were much more about the 11 TD's that Brady threw, than failure of a young inexperienced QB.

While the teams average win rate with TT projected a 10-6 average record, no one could be in doubt that play calling that called for more than 95% chance of a run on 1st downs didn't really fool opponents.

Had Manning not come to Denver, we would have seen how far Tebow could develop, and this poll taken in 2012 if he had started would likely have been rather clear cut, as he would either have build on his strengths to be successful or been repeatedly exposed for his limitations.

LOL, there was no way that Elway had gotten rid of Tebow in 2012 without someone as Manning coming in. Rumour had it that Elway was really high on Brandon Weeden, and there is no way that Elway would turn the Broncos into that Browns. Quite a bit would have had to happen for Tebow not to start in 2012. He would have gotten the same treatment as Orton did in 2011, had he made as much of a stink of it, but it was the Manning acquisition that made TT irrelevant for 2012.

Well, all but a few saw a QB that needed a lot of work, and a QB that was not a sure thing. Most saw a lot of awful play and something that was unique enough to set several NFL records.

Anyone that did not see his limitations is a moron as is everyone that did/does not recognize that Tebow was instrumental in turning that awful team that Fox fielded for the first five weeks of his tenure in Denver. It was significant in Broncos history and in NFL History
