Enough with all the conspiracy crap. If Tebo did say this crap then he is a huge pusss. Buisness is buisness any time you feel that you are untouchable guese what you get touched on the ass out the door! I like TT alot dont get me wrong. But for christ's sake its Payton Manning. This is all just a bunch of he said she said bull****! This place used to be fun to come and read about the Broncos. Now it's like a teenage girls locker room.

I would balk at the nerve damage personally but if he is ok then it is a good move.

Tebow needs to keep working to get better and stop worrying about feelings. Peyton got cut, no one is above the franchise as a player. Do your job well and no one will try to replace you.
More like 12 years. Peyton had a pretty rough first 16 games. Had a lower QB rating than Tim Tebow does, in fact. Mostly because he led the league in interceptions. Then he missed his 14th season. Otherwise known as last year.

Yeah, you caught on earlier than most that Elway is FOS and can't be trusted. I'm with you now brother.

I knew he wasn't qualified for the job when he was hired. But his two-faced nature has been news to me. This whole Elway in the FO debacle is quickly sullying his image in my eyes.

If they haven't had the decency to contact him during this whole Manning affair, none of the gibberish you just wrote means anything.

Elway took over a 4-12 franchise and turned it to an 8-8 division winner including the first playoff win in 6 seasons. Yeah, it's been a real debacle. But, I get it...it was all Tebow. Elway contributed nothing to it.

Yep, it was all Tebow and his mighty 18.5 points per game offense. None of the other 52 players on the roster Elway helped assemble had anything to do with it. None of the coaches Elway brought in had anything to do with it. It was all Tebow. Brilliant analysis.

Fixed your post.

So what exactly did Elway do to be responsible for going 8-8?

Does it look like he's building on that 9-9 if as expected he doesn't land Manning and Tebow wants out

They also haven't addressed any needs in FA and have six picks in the upcoming draft, none inside the top 2 this time to save their ass from another woeful draft class.

You are an idiot who has no understanding of anything that happened last season. None. You literally might as well be a house plant for all the cerebral activity going on in your head. I never said it was all Tebow, but I can guarantee you it wasn't all Elway. It wasn't even a little Elway. Elway is fixated on quarterbacks and our quarterback was someone he didn't pick (kind of the whole problem actually). The Von Miller pick and McGahee signing were Fox and Xanders. I guarantee you that. Elway is not a personnel man.

Fox made the call to start Orton, not Elway. Elway stated that he lets the coaches make those decisions.

What did Elway do? He put together the coaching staff that was able to get more out of the existing talent than the previous staff. He added players like Von Miller, Willis McGahee, Orlando Franklin, and Broderick Bunkley who were all key contributors to the team. No rational person can possibly think it was all about Tebow. All last season proved is that he isn't as bad as Orton. Look, Tebow did some good things, but there was plenty of bad, too. It's not like we all of a sudden became a 30 points per game offense when he took over. I'm on the fence about Tebow's ability to develop into a long-term starter, as are a lot of folks, and you can hardly blame Elway for falling into that camp.

Elway brought in coaches willing to throw out their entire playbook and coaching stradegies to fit a player who can't execute NFL plays. They basically were asked to scheme a pro team into a college team.

Not many coaches would put up with that.


O ya. And he got rid of Nate jones.

I never said it was ALL Elway. I said he contributed to the success, disputing your claim that it's been a "debacle."

Willis McGahee and Von Miller were both on the field. Do they get any credit?

People act like some of these games were won by skill alone.
