Gee if a messagebaord has the Tebow circus on a daily basis I guess it not out of the question to assume the players have to deal with it as well

How can the focus be on football when every single reporter that shows up to interview the players continuously ask questions about Tebow? Then the player says that it's nice to not have to deal with the Tebow stuff. Hello McFly!!

But anyway, nice to see this thread is still kicking.

The tale of two New York football teams took an interesting turn on Thursday. The Giants and Jets held Organized Team Activity practices that day.

The Giants, the defending Super Bowl champions, were beginning to adjust to life without their third receiver, Mario Manningham, who left for San Francisco in free agency. In the morning workout, top wide receiver Hakeem Nicks went down with a broken bone in his foot. The Giants announced he would be out for as long as 12 weeks, which is dangerously close to the Sept. 5 season opener. Nicks is one of the Giants' eight or 10 most important players. A broken foot for a man who cuts and torques as much as an NFL wide receiver does ... dangerous.

The Jets, coming off a season in which they didn't make the playoffs, had Tim Tebow in practice for the first time he could be viewed in action by the media. Tebow is the backup quarterback to Mark Sanchez, but with the charisma Tebow has and the way Sanchez struggled last year, it could be a matter of time before Tebow challenges the incumbent. But no one in Jetland was giving any final quarterback grades eight weeks before training camp began. Tebow threw two interceptions early in the workout, and observers thought Sanchez was clearly the better quarterback on Thursday.

I charted the coverage given the two events in the five major local papers Friday -- the New York Times, Newsday, the New York Post, the New York Daily News and the (Bergen, N.J.) Record. You can predict the outcome.

Words devoted by the five major dailies to the Super Bowl champions losing their number one receiver, possibly for all of the offseason training and training camp, and perhaps threatening the start of his season: 2,104.

Words devoted by the five major dailies to Tebow's first practice visible to the media: 6,971.


So 23 percent of the football writing in Friday's papers in greater New York was devoted to a serious injury to a top player on the defending Super Bowl champions.

It was 6, not 7. And you have to go all the way back in history to 2009 to find the Broncos last 6 game winning streak.

There was nothing historic about it. It was fun as hell, but not historic.

I think a bunch of you here owe TailgateNut an apology. He is a long time Bronco fan that has hosted tailgate parties year after year always refusing donations preferring to foot the cost himself. He expressed his dislike for Tebow as our QB and was called a BAD FAN. Most of the yahoos condemning him probably never even went to a game or never followed the Broncos pre Tebow. He was one of the best posters here yet he was crucified by the jonny come latelys. Hopefully most of you have left for Jets boards and will plague real Jet's fans with your insane adoration for one single player in a sport where it takes 22 to play the game effectively.

Those of you that are still here time it's to eat crow and apologize to TGN

No.

It seems like they're glad to have Peyton Manning, which is an entirely different thing.

I wasn't rooting for the Broncos then, but I remember that streak -- it was a big deal. I was amazed that Josh McD was having such early success.

I don't consider it a run-of-the-mill thing.

It's not time at all. This thing is far from over.

Getting Peyton Manning was a no-brainer to me. He's a great quarterback. But the idea that the book is shut on Tebow? Not by a long shot.

Hey, good point. Next time TGN Neg Reps me for not joining in the continual Teebhate circlejerks around here, I'll make sure to 'pologize.

Oh, and I love people pretending to know who the 'real' Broncos fans are. There's a major contingent of real long-term Bronco fans out there who are pretty skeptical about this whole experiment.

Pretty ridiculous to call them out, saying they're not real fans just because they don't agree with you.

It is for the Broncos unless you think he is coming back.

I'm a disclosed Tebow follower -- been through the story so many times I won't repeat it here.

As to whether I'm "staying," this is the most fascinating development I've ever seen. Manning used to be one of my favorite players, and it kind of waned over the past few years. So I'll be following everything. But geniunely, it's mixed feelings. I won't be antagonistic or trolling, but I can't help but watch with anticipation and interest, whether the Broncos win, lose, or meh.

P.S. Don't anybody else bother with more or of the "I knew they would leave us" talk about the "real" fans directed towards me. You have no idea how pathetic it sounds from my vantage point. I've been polite the whole time, no interest in setting anyone straight, but it has been comical to watch.

He's not coming back, but (1) the news will continue to be reported here, and discussed here, no matter what happens. If Tebow fails, there will be rejoicing. If he succeeds, there will be people trying to rub your nose in it; and (2) the point on the table was whether it was time to "apologize" to Tailgate Nut for "being right." I still think Tebow would have continued to win as a quarterback with the Broncos -- history just stepped in in the form of Peyton Manning.

1.true for some. Most here like Tebow but understand the Broncos wanted to go in another direction, Peyton Manning direction. Likewise most here want Tebow to fulfill his dream.

2. The apology to TGN is not because he was right it's because the FO agrees with him in that Tim was not sufficiently developed for the FO to hang the future of the Broncos on. It's about the degree to which he was attacked. He is a 30 year fan and should have been allowed to have his opinion on Tebow's value to the Broncos. I love TT but I'm glad he is gone, the board is so much better these days (this thread excepted) or haven't you noticed?

The first 5 words of each sentence of that TGN quote are right on the money. Kuper's a very valuable part of the offense and it was horrible that he was injured.
