Default Better Greenhorn: QB Tebow or VP Elway?

Both have had their struggles.

So... I guess we're on another "epicFAIL starts 15 threads in 10 hours" cycle.

Superb.

Yeah... I'm pretty sure he will.

Have any thread-specific thoughts?

Elway Report Card:

Trades: D -
The QB position could have been sorted out, controversy avoided, and the first five games could have possibly resulted in a couple more wins had the Broncos been able to move Orton. The Bunkley deal was excellent and has really helped the team. The Gaffney trade was an abomination in retrospect, as was the Lloyd trade. Too little return on what were some of the teams' marquee players to warrant a passing grade here.

PR: C-
Elway allows himself to say things he shouldn't say at times when he should keep to himself

Free Agency: B-
Passing up on Mebane and others to sign Warren was a mistake. Fells has been a quality pick-up and McGahee has been a solid score. But the grade is lowered because the team neglected to spend their cap space. Elway's role in that is unclear. He should probably focus on clearing that kind of stuff up rather than talking about the starting QB.

Draft: A+
Not much more needs to be said. Miller, Franklin, Carter, Moore, Green, Thomas...there's alot to like here. Could be a foundational draft with a couple of studs.
