Great article. Pretty much sums things up.

Sadly, I predict that Elway will not read it, and even if he did he wouldn't "get it".

Tebow has to improve his game to be the long term solution at QB. I think that he probably will, but it is certainly not guaranteed at this point. It is just as silly to say that he is our long term answer, as it is to say he can't play in the league.

You can say that Tebow is "our quarterback" and just go from there, though.

You can give him a legitimate shot to grow, just like most first round draft picks get.

I just can't imagine it being any simpler than that.

Eric Decker needs to start catching the ball on third down when the ball hits him in the hands. I'm not convinced that he will be a WR in Denver next season.

Willis McGahee needs to start converting on 4th and 1 or on 3rd and 2 when he gets called upon to make the play. I'm not convinced that he will be a RB in Denver next season.

Champ Bailey needs to start picking off more passes when the ball is thrown in his direction. I'm not sure that he'll be playing CB in Denver next season.

Ryan Clady has been beaten too many times for negative plays and has committed way too many penalties this season. I'm not sure that he'll be playing LT in Denver next season.

Von Miller had to be benched because he was missing run assignments. I'm not sure that he'll be playing OLB in Denver next season.

Elvis Dumervil gets hurt too easily and needs to get more sacks. I'm not sure that he'll be playing in Denver next season.

...

Its easy to focus on the negatives of a player. Why anyone would do such a thing in the press is anyone's guess.

I agree, and I'm guessing John will give him this chance. The Duke needs some polishing on his PR skills, but I think he's been fairly level headed in his assessment so far.

Name your price
a ticket to paradise
You can't deny Tebow any more
and I've looked
high and low

We've been from Brian to
to Jake to Kyle
If there's a more exciting QB (outside of Jay)
we'd have found it
But there ain't no
easy way around it

(chorus)
Light of the world
shine on Tim-my
Tebow is the answer
He wins games for us all
He sets us free
Tebow is the answer

Who knows why
his heart and grit won't let us die
We're all long suffering
Broncos fans
and we were never heard

It's such a terrible three years
in the Broncos world
People turn their heads
and walk on by
Tell me is it worth
not to give him another try

Light of the world
Shine on Tim-my
Tebow is the answer....

He might have erred in saying it in public (although I really don't think it is the huge deal that everyone makes it to be), but it doesn't make his comment less true. Tebow has some great qualities, but he really does need to play better for us to win consistently against quality teams going forward. No different from any other young QB in this regard.

Thats why you don't heap pressure on the young player like Elway is doing with Tebow. There would have been no constant news cycle with Elway's quote had Elway just been wise about what he said. Tebow wouldnt have had a 15-minute interview on live national TV this morning had Elway been wise about what he said.

We need these guys focusing on the Chargers, not on whether or not Elway is driving wedges in the locker room.

I'd bet dollars to donuts that we are far more concerned about this than Tebow or anyone else on the team is.

Yes absolutely. Without a true offseason under his belt, and working on only a handful of starts, he's been his best when it's mattered most. That does say something. Obviously everybody knows you won't always get that miracle win late in the 4th and you need to do more things throughout the game. But I think he will get there.

I like Tebow I just can't stand his fans who are currently bandwagon Denver Broncos fans and who refuse to shut the hell up.

The guy who started this thread and wrote the article has been a fan for a long time and campaigned for years for Floyd Little to get into the HOF.

People don't care about such distracting details. The "I hate Tebow's fans" meme has given people the outlet they need to express a disdain they have for a part of Tebow they don't like. It's looking for the worst in people.

If Tebow or any other QB can't play to their best because they get affected by pressure from outside the game, like from the media, then they're not worth starting.

Tebow isn't going to fail or succeed because Elway and co are evaluating his performance (and rightly so). He's got too strong a character to be affected by that.

But it does say a lot about fans who get distraught and dramatic over these blurbs that are hyped up for that reason by the media.

Good article which sums up my feelings exactly. I think it would be a shame to give up on the guy after only a handful of games. His ability to elevate his play, and the play of those around him, will not be easily replaced.

True, we saw how uninspired and little emotion this team played when Orton was the QB. It was like they were zombies or the look of a team that is just playing out the string of games when they are out of the playoff picture and this is week 2 for crying out loud.

I know and realized that after I posted, which I should have fixed. While this very much looks like it was directed at him it isn't. It was a statement in general.

By the way Mr. The Moops I love your blog.
