and it's not like the Broncos were awful after Elway retired anyway. Shanahan had two losing seasons during his post Elway years, and there were two teams that had as legitimate a shot at winning the super bowl as you can have without a QB like, ohh, I don't know, Peyton Manning
Good enough to be average. Average after having a team in 5 superbowls over 13 years is awful. You get used to a certain level of excellence. You cannot say 1999-2011 was the same as 1983 to 1998.
I do think Tebow is the long term guy. He is raw and needs work. If Manning comes in for 2 or 3 seasons, and Tebow stays that's the best possible scenario in my opinion. It helps the franchise now and long term.
