Why the **** do they always say this kind of **** before trades. I mean they declared they would take a 5th for Lloyd, and that's what they got. Now they say they don't expect much for Tebow. Guess what is going to happen? ****ing idiots are running this team...

Maybe we could trade him to Skip Bayless? Bet he'd give us a few first rounders?

Anyway. The media has been wrong for days. I'll wait for something real.

There is a part of me that wants Tebow to call up Elway and say "I want to be on this team and I want to do whatever it takes to help this team win, I will play halfback, h back, tight end, whatever you need me to do."

I know this will never happen but it would be cool.

The new Jacksonville owner himself stated that he would've taken Tebow with his first rounder. Why wouldn't we be able to get AT LEAST a third from them now?

It was Charlie Casserly who said he did not expect TT to bring more than a 5th. I think what the Broncos are acknowledging is that no matter how much teams like the patriots SAY they like TT, no one is going to pony up a 1st round pick or anything comparable for TT.

The Broncos used a 1st round pick on TT, the Broncos are not going to get that type of value in a trade, that's the main point of this article IMHO.

two reasons: Gabbert and Henne.

I'll even throw in one more reason: a coaching staff and FO that will try to talk some reason into this new fresh faced owner.

I do think they'd pony up a 4th. But then what about Gabbert?

Report I saw said Tebow'd be cut before he'd be kept as a backup. They don't want the second guessing that comes with the Tebow fans anymore is my guess.

Though, I agree, if it were possible, I'd have preferred to see how the Tebow project ends. The fans just make it impossible.

I'd take Gabbert straight up and see if he develops. You're right, though, in that if anyone trades for Tebow, he has to start. If anyone doesn't want a divided fanbase and drama, that means getting rid of any other competent QBs and having a journeyman/vet as his backup.

Because they don't have to. Why pay for something you can get for free? The FO will cut him before they actually try to build a relationship with Tim and describe to him a long term picture where Tebow matures here.

You do realize we'll be lucky to get a 5th for him, right?

I'm betting some team gives us a 6th and we use that to pay off the Browns, keeping our own 5th. We get more value than anyone is actually willing to pay, knowing that we're cutting him, and the trade partner doesn't need to worry about a waiver claim.

My guess is that trade partner will be the New England patriots.

I was thinking Gabbert + a 3rd earlier, but the FO is already losing this media war with multiple leaks indicating that they'll simply cut Tebow if they can't trade him.

No matter what, huge loss of value simply because our FO can't handle the local and national media.

Michael Silver's a bit of a dick to be honest.

Stating that Tebow will be hard to move because his base salary jumps to $6m in 2013 and $7m in 2014. The kid only has $700k left in guaranteed money. That's all that ever matters in a contract.

Tombstone RJ
03-19-2012, 01:02 PM
Yah, the Broncos should just keep TT instead of cutting him. Bring him in in special packages, goaline type of stuff. You know this is how the NE would use TT if they got him.

As for the fans screaming about TT not starting, I don't think that happens if the Broncos are winning, yes?

Manning wants complete control of the offense and the Broncos are going to give it him. None of that involves coming out of the game so Tebow can run for TD's. The Broncos can not possibly show they do not believe in Tebow or really even want him around any more than they have, yet people actually think, or more like hope, they will keep him around to learn Manning's offense he nor really any other QB can run besides him. Face it, Tebow is gone. The Broncos getting to a Super Bowl has more to do with finding other pieces on the roster, not who backs up Manning.

For all we know, Tebow's been breaking his toys and screaming at walls since this whole thing started.

Tebow's agents would never let him say anything that'd tarnish his image even if he wanted to. They can leak things, the agent can say things, but they'd never let him say anything.

Remember, LT2 was "all class" until the world finally heard him talk when he was upset and he was just a whiny little bitch. Marvin Harrison was "all class" until he shot someone and got blackballed from the league. These people know how to play the media game because so much is riding on it. They're well advised.

Except Tebow has been a massive celebrity basically since he became an adult, well before he had media handlers or anything of the sort, and he has never had issues like that.

Tim Tebow is more media and image savvy than anyone he could hire to do the job for him. What you see from Tebow is who he is, and that happens to be the most socially aware pro athlete in a VERY long time.

03-19-2012, 02:24 PM
They were talking about Tebow on ATH a while ago and were talking about how a newer coach might not be very willing to risk their head coaching gig on Tebow. Both Jax and Miami are new coaches. If the FO overrules the coach to make money, there could be a suitor but it probably won't be a major bidding war.

Still saying NE is possible but they were pondering whether his career as a QB ends with him leaving Denver. They said there's just not somewhere for him to start and the fans would make him being a backup QB insufferable (paraphrasing that last part).

NE is interested but only as a fullback or similar position. I won't bet the house on it but I'll predict tebow gets released.

Atwater His Ass
03-19-2012, 02:35 PM
I'm still hoping Tebow sticks around and gets to learn from both Elway and Manning. However, it seems blatantly clear that EFX do not care for Tebow and that makes him staying impossible.

My big concern here is the long term for the franchise. Sure, Manning can come in and give us a couple maybe 3 years. But we completely change our team building stategy in both the draft and free agency, as well as re-do our entire offense to something only Manning can run. Where does that leave the team in 3 years? In pretty much the same situation the Colts are in now....gutting their roster and starting completly over. If Manning doesn't win a Super Bowl with Denver this will set us back worse than where we were before he got here. Huge risk, imo.

Even with Manning here, we still need to find a QB to replace him, meaning spending huge free agency resources just to sign Manning and also draft resources to find a young QB. That's a lot to spend on 1 position on a team absolutely filled with holes all over.

Tebow is not polished in any sense of the word. THIS team didn't want to invest the time and effort to develope him. Teams like GB and SF have coaches that have shown they have the ability to develope QBs. It would be the best fit
for him, and would be a place where they already have good starters that will not get yanked around by the fan base demanding Tebow go in. Only in injury situations, or special plays, will Tebow see the field for the next few years.

And he DOES have great potential with the right offense around him.

I would ask for a 5th with a conditional next year based on his TD production. Not see the field = nothing. Score < 5TDs a 6th, Score 5 TDs another 5th, Score 8 Tds a 4th, Score >8 = a third.

I would never outright release him! That is Stupidity!

I'm pretty surprised that the 49ers have been in contact with the Broncos about Tebow. I'm assuming it's their plan B for if Smith signs elsewhere, but I could also see someone like Steve Young talking to York and convincing him that Tebow can be the guy. Young initially didn't like Tebow, but he was won over and now thinks he's great, not to mention Tebow's best comparison might be to Young who also was very raw, left handed, scrambler early in his career.

The Jags are the obvious destination, and if the owner intends to keep the team in Jacksonville, he'd be crazy not to do anything in his power to get Tebow.

New England also has 2 late first round picks this year, so I could see Belichick trading a pick or Mallet for Tebow and letting him learn under Brady while seeing the field in special packages.

Belli won't give a first for TT. Rumor is that they are going to sign Balts #1 tendered FA and use one for that. Mallett...and a 4th...maybe.

12:34 pm Mike Freeman: I'm told five to six teams have called the Broncos and that the number might be higher. [My] source believes Tebow will be traded for a fifth or sixth rounder. The Broncos believe they'll be able to trade Tebow by the end of the week. There remains a distinct possibility that if he isn't traded the team would simply release Tebow.

I sincerely hope Tebow goes where he wants. He certainly deserves it. Great kid.

Hopefully he'll land where he wants to land.....

Rumor control (ESPN's the herd) had him telling former UF and Buc Brad Culpepper's wife that he "misses home....misses the south...."
