(Just joking about MacGruder - I think)

Saw this on Yahoo:

According to his obituary in the Columbia Daily Tribune, 78-year-old Jim Driver "wanted out" before he had to see Peyton Manning don a Broncos jersey. This is the lead paragraph from that obit:

James H. "Jim" Driver, 78, of Eagle, Colo., formerly of Columbia, passed away Monday, March 19, 2012, at South Hampton Place in Columbia after a brief illness. An avid Broncos fan, he abhorred Manning and evidently wanted out before a deal was done.

Just for the record, that wasn't me and I'm still alive and kicking and very happy that Manning is here.

It can't be mCg, he is still trying to go back into time to change Elway's mind about Tebow.

I get TJ's point about "fake news stories", but MacGruder did this to himself. If he wanted to be a productive part of the the OM community, that thread would have probably been treated as a joke...

This just shows how stupid some people on this board are...

Why on Earth would I meltdown??

Its the complete opposite... this is EPIC awsomeness..

Tebow goes to the Jets and outshines the Broncos a thousand times.

He's even on a better team with a REAL coach that is actually a man... Has REAL GMs..

He even has an offensive coordinator that KNOWS how to use him.

My only issue now is the continued smear campaign being run by Elway and co.

He at least knows how to use the wildcat. He will at least have the STONES to use it...

And could he be any worse than McCoy and Fox?

This is the thanks I get too.. I told them Tebow would be good and they made a run into the playoffs..

And what do I get.. crucified for it. lol

He won games just running the wildcat.. that takes more balls than Fox has shown his entire coaching career combined..

So surely a successful franchise must have realized they were both diamonds in the rough and given Sparano a HC Job and Tebow a starting QB position. BRB checking Wikipedia.

Tebow WAS essentially given a starting QB position... haven't you learned anything from the Orton saga?

And Sparano just needed a Tebow to save him in Miami.. Fox and Elway would have been in worse shape without Tebow to save them..

Wrong.. Elway and Fox failed..

The only thing those guys can get right is a smear campaign against Tebow.. because they don't want people to realize they are completely clueless..

And I was talking about Tebow being given a starting Qb position at New York.. it's the same thing as with Orton.. only this time when he starts the guys playing him will know what to do with him and he will have an actual team and GM around him..

Elway and Fox had nothing to do with Sparanos epic fail in Miami. And Fox did his best to make a QB as horrible as Tebow successful.

Fox and Elway were far far worse than Sparano.. Sparano could have won with Orton.. McD did and the Broncos had a ton of injuries McD's last season.

And again.. Sparano had no Tebow.. Foz and Elway would have likely been run out of the league by now if Tebow hadn't saved them.

So MacGruder is counting on the Wildcat for Tebow and not a standard QB position. Oh, have we falled so far.

I didn't say ONLY the wildcat.. but that will help to get the most out of Tebow. But hey... anyone is going to look like a creative genius compared to Fox. Even if Sparano sucks at least he fits Tebow unlike Fox.. AND Tebow has a much better defense around him than the Broncos and the offensive talent can't be worse...

Sparano also has tons of experience coaching Olines.. with Tebow's deep passing ability this could be a match made in heaven. If the Broncos had a decent Oline in that Pats game who KNOWS where the Broncos could have gone last season...

So when a team runs the WC doesn't the STARTING QB split wide and pretends to block?

If Tebow is getting the ball out of the WC formation that means that the Jets have moved him to FB/HB right?

Tebow will be missed on 3rd and 16 and near the goal line but we have a QB who can now score from anywhere on the field.

I don't think so.. this is why they talk about Sanchez being taken out of the game. Ithink that is only the case when the wildcatter is already on the field. I don't think Tebow has to be on the field to be used as the wildcat. They could do it at times but it isn't necessary.

Tebow will be missed on 3rd and 16 and near the goal line but we have a QB who can now score from anywhere on the field.

Anywhere on the field unless the field is in the playoffs... ;)

I don't think the QB was the problem then and it won't be now.. the problem was the coach and the team just like it is now.. Tebow was just the scapegoat..

You don't understand that McCoy played to Tebow's strengths do you? It is like Fox and McCoy were in the newspaper business and forced to present everything at a 3rd grade level.

As Tebow got better they slowly gave him more. Unleashing the Tebow would have cost them the season and we would have been denied 30 minutes of uninterrupted Tebow time on ESPN's Pregame show. Fox and McCoy made Tebow. Tebow is going to the Jets to become a glorified hybrid RB/HB/TE
