Default Did lockerroom really have Tims back?

After reading alot of the tweets and listening to some of the interviews of current Broncos, it doesnt seem like alot of the team really had Tim's back. Sure they played the good teammate route etc, but once this reality hit the true emotions came out.

Even Colquitt took a parting shot by saying now I wont have to punt 10 times a game, my work load will decrease. When the kickers start in on you thats not a sign of confidence.

I heard D Thomas on Mike and Mike. He sounded pretty wishy washy when they asked him if he thought Tebow would succeed as a QB.

I think they had his back when they were winning, not so much when they weren't.

What's up with the players anyway. You'd think they just heard we were getting Payton Manning or something.

Liking Peyton Manning doesn't mean they didn't support or like Tebow.


In fact this is lost on some people here. I like both, but keep reading that isn't possible.

I think the players did have his back. But over the course of the year, Tebow got a lot of credit and media attention for the teams inspired play. No doubt Tebow was the impetus that got the team going, but it was the team's play as a whole that got the job done. And that is not Tebow's fault, and I'm sure the players realize this. But I think it's a relief to them to know they have a legitimate offensive threat now. The defense and offense can play an entirely different game with Manning behind center.

I think some fans should realize there is a reason the players are so excited about this FA signing. They wouldn't be as thrilled as they are, if there wasn't a reason.

Just depends on the context. McGahee was excited about Manning, which is understandable for a guy with only a year or two left at best. But he also said Tebow will succeed wherever he goes.

If you ask the question from the Manning perspective, they'll say things about what Manning will improve. Usually if you ask them point blank about Tebow instead, you'll probably hear nice things.

Not necessarily mutually exclusive. Because most reasonable people don't hold the same standards for 14 year vets as for 16-game starters.

mcgahee said that if adrian peterson came to denver, he instantly becomes the starting RB. thats how it works and this is similar.

Yeah, I heard that and it was pretty ****ty of Thomas to insinuate on the national stage. D. Thomas could be great, but has barely been healthy enough to be a major contributor.

I think D. Thomas sees dollar signs in his future. He now has the chance to be a top 10 receiver in this league with Manning chucking the rock.

I would bet there are very few teams that have every player believing in their QB. Some probably loved Tebow and some probably thought he wasn't cutting it. The same could be said for Orton, Cutler, and Plummer. Thos next season will be the first since Elway that the entire team believes in the QB.

I think their play on the field showed that they had his back. But it's pretty much a no-brainer that Peyton Manning is a better quarterback than Tim Tebow. Why shouldn't they be excited. The message that the Peyton Manning deal sends to the locker room is that they're going to try to win a Superbowl now - not later. That's exciting for those guys.

Yep, listening to Champ yesterday with Al and Dbag he sounded nothing short of giddy.

I think a lot of those guys are just paranoid that they're going to say something that is going to bite them on the butt.

Colquitt taking a shot?!?

The punter should always shut his piehole. "Whaaaaa! I had to punt 10 times in a game."

Does he think he was OVERWORKED?

It depends on how you define "had his back". I read reports that guys in SF were pissed that Alex Smith wasn't being pursued very hard while the team went after Manning. Here, you have people talking about how much better things will be and then making hollow statements like Thomas' testament to Tebow's dedication. He didn't comment that he's got the skills to succeed, he didn't say he thinks he's one of the best 32 QBs, he didn't speak to his talent at all aside from saying he'll succeed due to his determination. I don't think taking the field with the guy is necessarily "having his back" in that they might have believed he was the best option at the time but I don't think they truly believe in him as a QB in the grander scheme of things.
