Again, you think Rex Ryan is a good qb evaluator when you say that. You understand that right? Tebows demotion says more about Ryan, who said Sanchez gave him the best chance to win (where have I heard that before.) than it does about Tebow.

If Ryan thought Tebow should start, I may start to sound like you guys. That means he sucks.

Orton will be in the NFL longer then Tebow.

They won't rid of Orton.. They need someone to throw game clinching interceptions in case romo gets hurt.

Probably. He is really good in practice. That is what is most important.

ironic considering how hard you are clinging to tebow.

I can handle other winners... I wish we had a club where we could all meet and trade stories.

Well you might want to tell your boy Tebow that until he starts practicing better, he'll never get those "reps" to "progress"

In his defense he will always be able to say well Teblow has a winning record because he might not start a game again. I remember Tebow for losing 4 of last 5 games in blowout fashion personally.

So me forming an opinion on 16 games is lame, but 5
is totally cool?

Great logic there. (another win)

So the guy who has a .507 win % and is 2nd string is a loser...

and the guy a .570% and is 3rd string is a winner?

do you think 57% is not better than 50%?

I saw enough to think that he would never be a legit qb. Not that it matters but neither did Elway or the Jets. I called it before Tebow is going to bounce around the league. This is a passing game now and he is god awful at it.

The thing is Tebow is being out Tebow'ed by RGIII, even Cam Newton is a better Run/pread Option/throwing QB than Tebow is.

I have a gut feeling that if he doesn't find a fit where he can start for a team this year he may just leave the NFL and go into politics or something where he can stay in the public eye and spread his message.

The worse his NFL career goes the more tarnished his image gets.

Ive barely read this thread. But it saddens me that I continuously see it at the top of the feed when we are 13-3 and have the number 1 seed.

Yeah, it was this thread (among one or two others) that made me question what it is we do on this board.

I'm going to stop feeding it... until offseason at the very least.

And with that development goes a bunch of the arguments as to why Tebow should not have been picked, or should not have been given a chance. And why the Broncos just had to stick with the Orton offense through Tebow's rookie and sophomore year.

It was always much simpler than people were willing to make it -- if the kid can throw it well enough, get him in there. If he can't, move him on into the heap wherever Blaine Gabbert, Brandon Weedon, Kevin Kolb, Brady Quinn, etc. all go.

Everything got too clenched up over Tebow's style of play, and arguments upon arguments that it could "never work." When in reality, anything can work.

It was always just a simple question of whether he's good enough to be one of the 32 starters in the league -- a very high standard, and one in which many people fall short of in a constant river of prospects.

Both RGIII and Cam Newton went to teams that made their success a top priority. Tebow got drafted by a coach who didn't make it through that season, took a team to the playoffs that had a coaching staff unwilling to let him throw, then wound up on a team that represented itself as wanting him to compete at QB but really just wanted him to be a gimmick.

Not really the same experience.

Both RG3 and cam can throw a pro pass. Tebow cannot throw on a consistent basis. It's pretty simple and his lack of skill is the reason he's not playing. Not some conspiracy to bring him down. Teboners will be blaming everyone but him all the way until he's out of the league. And when he's out of the league they'll still cry about tebow not getting a chance.

2 of Tebows HC's refused to start him including the one who moved up in the draft to get him. I think both saw what they traded for and then had buyers remorse. I know he was drafted in a lockout year but still if mCd thought he was ready he would have put him in at some point during his last 6 game losing streak.

Plus McCoy built an O around the guy that helped him succeed and it still took miracles and one guy running out of bounds and the same guy fumbling to back into the playoffs.

RGIII and Newton are better versions of Tebow and are more successful.

I thought Weeden looked pretty good throwing the ball against us.
