No, most are Bronco fanboys. If Tebow was traded/cut, no one would care about him.

good one

I like McGruger, but he laid himself open for this one.

This thread is like finding a good magazine article while you are taking a shiit during an restroom stop at a never before visited place.

So you admit you are a homer?

Any OBJECTIVE fan should be a Tebow fanboy....

I think there is a good chance Elway will trade Tebow if he feels we will get a shot at Luck.

It doesn't matter.. his performance for it being only his first three games is what made it such an incredible accomplishment.. the sample size SUPPORTS my statement.. Imagine when he gets more experienced in his own offense and the tendencies of his opposition. His familiarity with his offense and passing game will make him an even better runner...

What do you think of the Broncos QB situation, Baja? I wish if Elway already made up his mind he would just make his move.. I just hope he doesn't feel pressured so he isn't following his instincts. I don't think that is good for anyone.

What move? He has no way of knowing who has the first overall pick next year, and you have no chance of landing a premier QB in the league today (those players are rarely traded.. Brees being the last).

Not that it matters, there is nothing on our roster that will get a team to budge from that #1 pick next year. For better or worse, this team is Tebow's team for the next few years.

Didn't you post earlier you thought Elway's instincts were flawed, stuck in the NFL of yesterday?

I just mean if Elway has already made up his mind that Tebow can't be an elite QB in the NFL. I don't know that he has or hasn't. I am just saying if he has. It just seems from watching the events that he might feel pressured to keep Tebow by the fans. Let's put it this way... if Tebow was the same guy but no one knew who he was would Tebow still be in the same position he is now? Would Elway even pretend he was taking him seriously as a potential franchise QB or would he not because Tebow is not a polished looking pocket passer?

I think most guys from Elway's era are.. like I said.. I haven't seen Elway say anything at all to make me believe he isn't another one of them.

A very small part of me would want this to happen just so MacGruber would follow Cutler fan and leave the Mane. I come back here and it grows 5 pages. It takes either a good post fight or one retard vs the masses.

Not a surprise at all with the IQ we are dealing with here..
Arent you the one that is scared Elway is going to get rid of Tebow? I doubt many here are thinking that but you sure do. You are paranoid.

Mike Vick was a better rusher in the NFL than in college? I don't think so.. in fact he's worse...

Vick was a number one pick because he looked so good rushing outside of the SEC. Tebow was better running in his first three game in the NFL than Vick was.. and Vick looked like a better runner than Tebow in his conference in college.

You don't understand what I am saying at all.. and you appear to be paranoid.

I am worried Elway is keeping Tebow without committing to him fully and is half-hearted in his support and instead of trading him keeps him and possibly moves him to another position because he is afraid of pissing off the fans.

How can that even be considered an irrational fear considering the controversy regarding Tebow's NFL ability?

Most people here are Broncos homers and are worried about this scrub team more than Tebow's long term success. Crappy teams are a dime a dozen.. Tebow could be a revolutionary player and one of the all time greats if things break his way. That is why most here aren't really concerned about what happens either way.

I wish he would follow his instincts fully rather than pretend to support a player he really doesn't just to appease the fans.

I would rather see Tebow get traded in that situation because he would be more likely to reach his potential that way.

You are only using his average per rush.. that doesn't equate to being a better runner.

FAIL.

Besides.. Vick was a number one pick.. Tebow was 25th.. Tebow out performed Vick in his first three starts.. and Tebow was considered a worse runner than Vick... this just illustrates my point.

But you forgot to factor in the formula for antigravity which by it's very definition negates the "attempt" part of the equation.

BTW: This is also why Suh's rookie sack record last year doesn't count.
