Tebow leaving is the best possible thing that could happen to this team. We're not going to win many games next season with him at QB anyways. Feel free to speed the whole process up (and take the whiny cry-babies who support him with him).

"I love the smell of innuendo in the morning, you know one time we had a Tebow wants to be traded thread, 12 pages long. When it was all over I walked up, we didn't find one of them, not one stinking link. Smell, that smell, smells like... Victory."

I've just realised as well, regardless of QB our 3rd WR now is either Jason Hill or Matthew Willis and people wanted rid of Eddie Royal.

Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

Plus side of this could be that if we can't bring in any DT's -- we are forced into drafting one early. I'd say at this rate two would need to be drafted but who the **** knows whats going on in Dovey DOwnerville.
You mean after they spend the #25 on a mid-low grade QB prospect?? I had high hopes of more defensive talent myself but now I can't see how they don't draft a QB with the #25.

But really, who knows Maybe that was the FO's goal.

For the few posters I saw saying they'd lose respect for Tim or saying he's being a baby (assuming the report is true) or comparing this to Cutler. My two points would be:

1) It's in any player's right to request a trade. There's a respectful way to do it and a non-respectful way. If Tim does request one, we'll see how he does so.

2) For the, "Why is he so upset they went after a future HoF QB?" crowd - I highly doubt that's the only reason he would request a trade. Consider this brief timeline possibly from Tim's point of view of some of the events made public:

* Elway takes the job, immediately begins the "Tim's a good player but we need to make him a QB" mantra.

* Within weeks on the job, Elway has to shoot down trade rumors after an interview with Peter King.

* Camp opens, and a Broncos source leaks he's the 4th best QB there and (I believe) he'd be cut if you didn't see the name on the jersey.

* He gets minimal-time in a preseason game. Yes, a 1st round QB in his 2nd year who everyone knows needs tons of reps can't get burn in a game that doesn't count.

* He clearly outplays Quinn in the final preseason game leading Fox to not name a #2 QB and the official team site lists them as Co-#2 QBs.

* Fox and Elway begin the mantra that Orton gives the team the best chance to win.

* Tebow gets thrown in after 1-4 start, rallies against the Dolphins for a win. Next week he plays poorly against Detroit and reports begin the team is ready to pull him the next week for Quinn. Elway confirms via his radio show before and after the game a change was ready. Tebow, however, has one of his best games in the win over Oakland.

* Through the win streak Fox tells a reporter if Tim were in a regular offense, "he'd be screwed."

* A few wins later, following the Jets win and infamous study of Elway's facial reactions; the even more infamous "Ummmm, No." response to Gary Miller from Elway.

* Through the winning streak, Elway and company take public visits to see Luck, RG3, Foles and I believe Barkley.

* Heading into the franchise's first playoff game since 2005-2006, more rumblings he could be replaced for Quinn including talk of a 3rd down "Quinn Package"

* After winning the franchise's first playoff game in years, the entire team (including Tim) struggles in the loss at New England. At the season ending press conference he gets the whopping vote of confidence that he's earned the right to enter camp as the starter.

* Workouts and interviews with projected late 1st/early 2nd round QBs made more public than players at any other positions.

* Broncos immediately jump out very publicly in their pursuit of Manning (opposed to say, SF who kept things very quiet). Words like "desperate" are leaked of how badly they want Manning.

* The rest of free agency is put on hold essentially in hopes of landing Manning, to the point not one offensive free agent who could potentially help Tim has come in for a visit. All the while, per reports Tim has not even been contacted through the process.

* Elway goes official in the team's pursuit of Manning via his Twitter page which then finds its way to the Broncos official website. Yes, official team-owned media that won't so much as comment on a transaction until its been approved by the league office made its lead story the pursuit of another QB.


Now taking all that into account, I could certainly see why Tim's people may believe it’s in his best interest for him to get to another organization. Honestly, I probably would advise him to.

DMac has been more up and down than a bi-polar person off their meds. He has flipped so many times.

This sounds like the most boring, pointless idea. 1) Hasselbeck football wont be fun. 2) He's good enough to win 5 games. Whats the point of signing some over the hill dude to run the team? I'd rather take a chance on somoene young and if its a complete ****show, then so be it. You start over the next year.

I'm just sitting here waiting for the famous final scene. I really don't thing anything good is gonna come out of all of this whether we sign PM or not. With SF coming in UTR it doesn't look good either way now....when will the curtain drop.......................

The most disturbing (unconfirmed) information out there from this Manning thing is not the fact that the Broncos went after him. It is not even the fact that they are probably not going to get him.

The most disturbing (unconfirmed) information out there is that they didn't level with their quarterback before they began their pursuit. I would hope that they had the professional courtesy to tell him that he was going to hear some stuff and gave him their reasons why.

Of course, like I said, we have no idea that conversation didn't take place. And even if t didn't, the second most disturbing (unconfirmed) information would be an overreaction from Tebow requesting a trade.
How would TT requesting a trade be disturbing/overreaction? If I had the choice, I would not want to work for EFX. They don't take into consideration we were the 2nd worst team in the league before Tebow took over. We traded away our best WRs. Our D was decent against crappy offensive teams or teams with their best players hurt. Got killed against teams with too teir offenses. Our play calling was pathetic! This FO is a joke!

No, he has been very negative about our prospects all along, it has been Big Al that has been all confident.

I don't know how credible he is, but I would say he has more credible sources than any of us.
