You just knew there'd be a well thought out post like this on a Denver Fan forum:

The moment that McD drafted Tebow, it created a QB controversy behind Orton. The Gator Nation's fans invaded the Broncos fanbase and pushed for their boy to start immediately. That naturally spilled into the media and eventually made for a divided Denver team.

On the one hand were the players who preferred Orton (yes, there were quite a few), he did nicely in his 1st year in Denver (8-7 as a starter) and there was a feeling that things were on an upswing.

Then McD let his mancrush get the better of him and he drafted Tebow - clearly a project QB at best - in the first round. Some players felt that as a 1st round pick, Tebow was the destined starter, so their support of Orton as a team leader waned.

I am positive that if Tebow hadn't been drafted or had been taken in a later round that Kyle Orton would still be the starter in Denver and have kept his winning record intact. The division that Tebow caused with his mere presence doomed Orton.

Watch the Jets this year. The Tebow faithful will not stand for their boy to sit behind Mark Sanchez. Every mistake Sanchez makes - a pick, a failed 3rd down conversion, a sack - will simply be fuel for their fire. Chants of "Tebow, Tebow, Tebow!" will soon fill the air, billboards will be erected, local sports talk radio shows will be overrun with Tebow fans demanding his start at every turn. Eventually, Rex Ryan and the Jets FO will capitulate - after all, Sanchez is a good QB that you can win with, but he lacks the Hall-of-Fame aura to protect him from such an assault. The Jets will go from an on-the-rise team that regularly makes the AFC Championship game to a meager bunch of also-rans. Sunk by a talentless QB's relentless army of fans..






Hilarious!

But that Orton is really a back up talent who at best can manage a game and not lose it, I agree. McDouche was a dead man walking after he pissed off Frown Cannon and didn't replace him with a real qb ... but then he's a guy who thought Sand Castle was Lombardi material ....

http://forums.theganggreen.com/images/smilies/lol.gif I don't "think" Timmie isn't a good QB, I know it.

Aside from that, I love the fact that the Jests actually went out and invited a QB controversy ignited by a circus sideshow atmosphere to engulf their team. See, that's what that red Bills helmet in my avatar means: I'm a Bills fan, and I enjoy it when other AFCE teams suffer, especially when the suffering is self-inflicted. http://forums.theganggreen.com/images/smilies/lol.gif

I can't wait to see the great offense Tony Sparano creates to use both Sanchez and Tebow "effectively" in the same game.
I can't wait to hear the "Tebow! Tebow! Tebow!" chants reverberating around Met Life Stadium whenever Mark Sanchez makes a miscue.
I can't wait for the post-game pressers where all the questions revolve around Timmie and why he didn't get the 20 snaps that Rex "promised".

I'm trying to figure how you could possibly classify the Jets as being on the rise. The Jets were the very picture of a meager bunch of also-rans last year. Done in partly by the very player who this guy is lamenting will turn them into what he apparently doesn't realize they already are.

Tebow didn't split the fanbase here.

what split the fanbase was Orton's suckitude in 2010.

in 2010, McD refused to put Tebow in during red zone situations, even though we were AWFUL at converting those into TDs under Orton. when McD finally relented after weeks of being badgered by THE MEDIA, guess what? Tebow scored some TDs for us down there.

Tebow fans +1, Tebow haters 0

then we went on a long, embarrassing losing streak under Orton, culminating in a couple of games where Orton was obviously injured but refused to come out. his injury was affecting his ability to throw. we were losing and we were dejected. the interim HC finally had enough and "benched Orton" in favor Tebow although it was portrayed as an injury benching. all Tebow did in those final 3 games was provide excitement for the first time all season and actually pull out a 2nd half comeback against Houston.

Tebow fans +2, Tebow haters 0

in 2011, Orton sucks and leads us to a 1-4 start. the coaching staff sees the writing on the wall and puts in Tebow. initially, when forced to play in the Orton system, Tebow is not very good. but once the coaching staff adapts the offense to suit Tebow's skills, we go on a miraculous 7-game winning streak that brings excitement back to the fans for the first time in 5 or 6 years.

Tebow fans +3, Tebow haters 0

we make the playoffs

Tebow fans +4, Tebow haters 0

we beat the Pissburgh Squeelers

Tebow fans +5, Tebow haters 0

we lose badly to NE and are beaten in all aspects of the game by a better team. there is much rejoicing in TGN's household.

Tebow fans +5, Tebow haters +1

the 2011 success leads Manning to consider Denver as a possible destination.

Yeah, Tim is a good kid and I still think if put into the right situation and given enough reps and time he might be able to develop into a more effective passing quarterback. That being said, thread after thread started by some of the more obsessive Tebow fans blaming McCoy, the receivers, the defense, the offensive line, Griese's dog, Obama, and Ancient Aliens every time Tim failed to read a defense correctly, or held the ball way too long, or when he threw an out 4 yards out of bounds became tiresome.

Last season was lightning in a bottle, and Tim was the catalyst that made that happen. But watching Jet fan deal with the circus from the outside will be enjoyable.

i agree his fans split the fanbase, but this fanbase was already split..before tebow it was McD lovers/haters..before that Marshall, Cutler, Shanny, Plummer, Frerotte, griese, etc etc....since the Utopia that the superbowls brought us, this fanbase has argued with itself almost every year.

what if he takes them to the SB next year?

just for giggles, how will you feel if the Jets bench Sanchez and a much improved Tebow, with a coaching staff determined to use him "correctly" is able, by catching lightning in a bottle for the 2nd year in a row, to take the Jets to the SB?

not saying that's going to happen, but it's also not entirely impossible either.

Every fanbase does that. If you go to the 9er forums, they argue about whether Alex Smith has the stuff. The Chiefs forums used to argue about whether or not Grbac has the stuff and now whether or not Pioli can put a team together. In Dallas, they argue over Tony Romo. It happens everywhere.

The Tebow circus, however, is an aggravated case of this, unlike anything I've ever seen in 15 years of being on Broncos discussion forums. I'm happy to have it behind us.

IMO, overall, those who rooted against Tebow were much worse than those who rooted for him.

for every MacGruder or BroncBow, there was a TGN or Idiot Arachnid who was just as fanatical on the other side.

but the 2nd tier Tebow haters (e.g., crackpipe, oubronco, TonyR*, McDman, etc. etc. etc.) were much much more divisive here than those who defended the kid. i took to defending Tebow more than i normally would have just because i was sick of seeing the ad hominems directed against him.

if you don't believe me, just wait until next season. if Tebow does poorly, these people will still be obsessing about him and crowing on here about how much he sucks. and if he does well, they'll be on here telling everyone that the Jets are successful in spite of Tebow and not because of anything Tebow does.

* yes TonyR, you belong on that list!

To be followed up by "Well there was no way to know a quarterback could improve like that after 14 regular season games. And we got good value for him anyway. That whatshisface we drafted in the 4th... he's got two special teams tackles this year!"

the arguments were never about "rational" statements. they were about "emotional" statements on both sides.

nobody who supported Tebow ever disagreed when people said he needed to improve certain passing skills.

if it had ended at that, it wouldn't have been an issue. but the Tebow haters went over the top with hyperbole about how bad he was and why he was bad. alot of that was BS and people who didn't buy it, rightfully dissented. then the arguments became pissing matches and there was no way they would ever end amicably.

I don't really understand how anyone could hate Tebow. What's not to like about the kid? I'm glad with the way things turned out, mind you. But I love Tebow.

My thing is that I felt that if we were going to win next year, it was going to have to be with smoke and mirrors. Smoke and mirrors only lasts so long. There will be no smoke and mirrors with Manning.

And while I love Tebow, I just don't get the odd, vitriolic nature of his groupies.

The Teboners were the worst. Some Tebow fans think I'm referring to them, but I am not. I like Tebow, and I love what he did for us as a player. But he has huge holes in his game and the Tebowners are the one's who invented conspiracy theories as to why Tebow couldn't throw the ball down field. John Elway being jealous was my favorite.

what if he takes them to the SB next year?

just for giggles, how will you feel if the Jets bench Sanchez and a much improved Tebow, with a coaching staff determined to use him "correctly" is able, by catching lightning in a bottle for the 2nd year in a row, to take the Jets to the SB?

not saying that's going to happen, but it's also not entirely impossible either.

alot of people on here will have to re-evaluate their opinion about the kid. i'd take a so-called "circus" fanbase in exchange for a SB. who wouldn't?

If that happens I will admit that I was wrong, and be happy for the kid's success. But I think a "much improved passing Tebow" is something that is still a couple of years away if it ever comes. Some people seem to forget that Tebow was expected to be a 2 or 3 year project when McDaniels drafted him. That was assuming full camps and otas. He was sort of thrust into a starting position prematurely because of Orton's lameness and the Tebowmania persona. His heart and athleticism were inspiring, but by the end of the season the league had figured out how to stop him, with the exception of the Steeler cover 0 hubris. What it really comes down to is if you can't execute basic 3, 5, and 7 step drops from the pocket and attack the middle of the field by fitting balls into tight windows, I don't think you can win consistently in the NFL. If Tim can continue to improve in this area, then he could certainly become a great NFL QB. But that's easier said than done.

i actually think he's a couple of years away too. i just hope they don't try to make him a conventional pocket passer and de-emphasize the other parts of his game. if he's just a pocket passer, he won't have a long career. those guys are a dime a dozen.

Tebow can actually do all of the things that you said he needs to be able to do. the problem is that he doesn't do them by ROTE. so he isn't always successful. part of it is youth. part of it is because he has to unlearn some things he was used to doing in college and re-learn to do them in the way the NFL expects.

this was what was so frustrating about the Tebow criticisms. it was all hyperbole. for example, "he sucks, he can't do this-or-that, he'll never be able to do this-or-that!". that was never the complete picture, but the national media didn't have any interest in nuance.

i hope Tebow finds a couple of coaches who really believe in him and want to take what he offers, but augment it with more traditional pocket passing skills. if that happens and he gets a couple of years to put it all together and have the game slow down for him, he could be a real weapon for somebody.

IMO, overall, those who rooted against Tebow were much worse than those who rooted for him.

for every MacGruder or BroncBow, there was a TGN or Idiot Arachnid who was just as fanatical on the other side.

* yes TonyR, you belong on that list!

I've never hated Tebow. He seems like a great guy. He just sucks at QB.

If his circus didn't follow him around I'd be more than thrilled had he stayed to learn behind Manning.

Also, I've never gone out of my way to bash him. Just like you I got more defensive than usual because I got sick of people coming up with excuse after excuse why he looked terrible 90% of the game.

Had he gone to a team I didn't despise I'd root for him to succeed but I hate the Jets and can't wish them well.

This is part of the irony of Tebow situation. He needed an opportunity to be coached up slowly and be able to learn to function successfully within the pocket (at least some of the time.) Which is probably what McDaniels envisioned when he reached for him in the first. Use him as a situational weapon and allow him to develop as a passer over time. Eventually, you create an offense around him as he improves. If he becomes a effective in the vertical passing game great, if not use him like a jumbo power version of Randall El.

The problem with that is he's Tim Tebow the industry and the circus (media, fan lover, and fan hater) associated with that will never allow that to happen. He either sucks or he's can do no wrong. The minute any QB in front of him struggles. The haters, huggers, and media will generate an echo chamber of poison. The kid will never get what he needs which is to take reps in practice and get more comfortable with the rote memory aspects of being a QB.

I like Tebow as much as the next guy but thought this was a pretty accurate take from Big Blocker on the ganggreen site.

<i>"As someone who followed Denver, you must know that in 2009 Orton, their new Qb, led the Broncos to a 6-0 start, their best since their SB season in 1998. They then lost two tough games to the Ravens and Steelers, but in the next Orton was injured, and taken out for Chris Simms. Simms was awful, and Denver lost to the Skins. The following week they had to play Orton despite his injury due to Simms's ineptness. And lost again. They then bounced back and beat the Giants and Chiefs in the next two games, with Orton leading the team. Unfortunately their next game was a road game in Indy that the Colts won for their 23rd straight win. They then lost a one point game to the Raiders, and their last two as well. Still, Orton finished with a good season:

2009 Denver Broncos 16 541 336 62.1 33.8 3,802 7.0 237.6 21 3.9 12 2.2 87T 43 9 29 159 86.8

Orton's stats in 2010 were somewhat better, at

2010 Denver Broncos 13 498 293 58.8 38.3 3,653 7.3 281.0 20 4.0 9 1.8 71 52 11 34 243 87.5

But everything else went wrong for Denver. Their best defensive player, Dumveril, went out in pre-seaon, as did their top running back White who had been brought in to replace Hillis, who was also gone. The seaon also included Denver's version of Spygate, a mid season firing of their head coach,
and the ranking as the league's worst defense. Garbage indeed.

Clearly 2010 was not Orton's fault, and oh yeah he was injured again, which is why Tebow played for him in the last three games of that season. Losing two of three starts, btw, the win being a one pointer over Texas, in one of their classic for them late season swoons. While Tebots like to say this was a comeback win engineered by Tebow, the fact is there was 3 minutes left on the clock when Denver scored, and it was the D who prevented Texas from going ahead by stopping their final drive.

Clearly Orton's stats dropped off for the Broncos last year, but there were some developments that clearly affected him. The top receiver Thomas was injured pre-season and did not return until after the first six games, (in time for Tebow). When Orton went to KC, he played in the last three games, which included two wins, one a win over Denver (heh), and the loss being in overtime to the Raiders.

And his stats were still better than Tebow's for the year:

Orton

2011 Denver Broncos 5 155 91 58.7 31.0 979 6.3 195.8 8 5.2 7 4.5 52T 11 2 9 49 75.7

Tebow

2011 Denver Broncos 14 271 126 46.5 19.4 1,729 6.4 123.5 12 4.4 6 2.2 56T 25 6 33 225 72.9

But he was/is still a royal douchebag.

This...

After reading his posts, I think only his dog could love him.....

I am not aware of that particular situation. He created that situation though. He would say aweful things to people,

Exactly....Slap reaped what he sowed.

Ya know, if this is how it unfolds, I'd be happy for Tim, but I sure would get tired of the "see? that's what i'm talkin' bout" from all of the maniacs. ... .

That will happen, trust me....I recall after busting on Griese's weak showings, he finally had an above average game, and we had some Griese fan start a "Take that errand...." thread....lol

Well, Slap was kind of a dick so even though you don't wanna see that happen, it's expected.

This. If you are gonna get after everyone for everything, don't have a 'weak' point yourself - even if it is a passion for animals.

He was polarizing no doubt. But, he knew football very well and never crossed me.

Trying to revive MySpace to get the maximum views (4) to read his blogs.

That and playing fantasy football in preparation to consult NFL teams in what makes a great fantasy football player and therefor elite level NFL talent.


Yes he actually said this..... It was surreal

I always loved Slap, from back to the RMN days. I was a DPO guy, but I dropped in on the RMN forum - mostly just to read it. It was like two wolf packs back in the day between those two forums - you either belonged to one pack, or the other - and eventually this place combined them both when it became clear that nobody from the establishment knew what they were doing where social media was concerned. In any case, it pained me to have to ban Slap. One of the saddest days of my time as an admin. But I had no choice really. I don't remember the exact insult he made, but it was at the level of wishing death on a guy's parents.

I love Slap. Yes, he was an ass and ironically took offense easily.

I always found that ironic also.

I tried to get the dude to a tailgate more than once. Had he come I think he would have realized all the anger he had towards others was really his own mind working against him. I've witnessed the phenomena more than once with the spatula in hand.

Jets fans now have the tebow circus and all things that are slap.;D

I miss Slappy. :(

From "just another OM poster" perspective, I miss Slap too, SoCal... however, from "OM moderator" perspective, I most definitely do not miss him because it was inevitable that his temper was going to make him post stuff that was going to necessitate moderator intervention.

Some of his exchanges with Mock were... epic... back in the day...

Slappy was definitely controversial but he was a good dude. We used to play Fantasy Baseball alot way back when and I miss him and Tredici!
