Getting into rhythm has nothing to do with his terrible accuracy and inability to make decisions. He needs to stop drifting backwards as well, it's infuriating.

Exactly......nice to see someone gets it. He has made those throws and will in the future. We have hit a bump in the road of a young developing QB.

Delivered all the way too so you just made the point. Been there, done that. Hit a bump in road but will rebound.

I agree with you that he can be better than he was today. I just have serious doubts that his passing ability is ever going to be good enough, and we have very little evidence to suggest that it will.

I have a feeling the play calling is bringing down the whole team its gotta suck to go from game to game only too see the same crap being used.

Hopefully, during the offseason and next season he can step it up. The Broncos need to bring in a solid vet to back up. I would also suggest turning Tebow into a kick ass TE to support the team. Giving the defense some more punch would also help. By the end of next season, the Broncos will know what they have in Tebow, one way or the other.

How do you expect an offense to click when you do not use it? I don't know if I could make a catch when I don't get thrown to until 4 min left in the game. And how do you expect to win a game by throwing 15-30 passes the last 4 min of EVERY game?

I will admit I am a transplant fan. I am a HUGE gator fan, so you know the rest of the story. I obviously am a fan of tebow and after seeing what I have seen from him in the past, I agree that he his not playing well right now. However, I think everybody forgets what kind of team denver has. I think the play call sucks and I think this plays huge into the psyche of the whole Offense. Tebow is scared when he does throw, Mcgahee is going to retire in 3 seasons bc he will be so beat up and eventually the D is going to give up. I just do not understand what some of you think a QB or a whole offense can do when the staff only lets you throw in the fourth quarter. Tonight he had I think 16 att going into the fourth. What confidence does that breed. I would love to see a stat on how many pass att there have been for less the 10 yards. How hard is it to game plan for any qb or offense when they are going to run most of the game and throw deep 10 times. I also agree with the person that said Fox has always been a .500 coach, what do we expect. Conclusion: Tebow is no Brady, Rogers, or Breese BUT, this team is not the pats, pack, or saints either. Just my .2
Don't be too harsh...lol
You should post more.

Also, this thread is pathetic.

The luck has ran out on this year. It was bound to happen. With all the breaks and luck we recieved by other teams you knew it would happen eventually.

Nothing to bail from when one was never on board with it totally. It reminds me of McD. I was very against it at the onset but as they went 6-0, I started to buy in albeit with a huge amount of skepticism. Similar with Tebow but wasnt ever as close to being on board as I was with McD.

I still like the idea of him being a TE with some trick plays once in a while.

You're right. You didn't suit up and play, so it was certainly no thanks to you. But as for the team? You can thank them because they improved from 4-12 to 8-8 and made the playoffs.

The ONLY reason they have been able to get away with that is because Tebow makes the running game so dominant.

IF Fox couldn't rely on the run game and win games with Tebow he would be forced to let him pass. It's like a crutch and they can't let it go now.

There is a way to solve this problem though.. Get some decent running backs. McGahee was decent when he was healthy but he isn't reliable. Beyond him there is no depth.

Put some great runners with Tebow and teams would not be able to stop the run game without opening the pass game allowing Tebow to throw.

If you watch in these last couple games McGahee had big holes and couldn't punish teams like he did earlier in the season. He's gimpy.
