Default Tim Tebow got a raw deal in Denver

Like Tebow or don't like Tebow, doesn't matter - he was treated very poorly here. Let's recap:

- First, pre-draft with all the talk about changing his mechanics, throwing motion, gotta believe he'd be a low-pressure 3rd rounder, have some time to learn. But Josh reaches - trades up to draft him at 25. But that's okay, no pressure, Josh was his #1 booster, he believed in Tebow. Believed just enough to park the kid's butt. Tebow threw just ONE pass in the 12 games McDaniels was coach, compared to 80+ the last 4 post-Josh.

- Last off-season, March-April, Elway says something like "we're giving him thge ball," or "it's his job to lose," something to that effect. Strike ends, camp starts, and 2-3 days in he's demoted. Demoted in the most wishy-washy p.r. fiasco way possible. Sounded like he wasn't even kept in the loop.

- Then after Orton crumbles, Tebow delivers the win streak! On December 21, in the throes of Tebow-mania, Elway: "Tim Tebow's not going anywhere. I mean, he's going to be a Bronco and we're going to do everything we can and hopefully he's that guy."

- Then Tebow delivers the Steelers miracle ... and Elway said just 23 days ago: "I was really happy with his progress. We’re hoping he’s going to be the guy for a long, long time.” Not just a "long" time, but a "long, long" time.

And now "long long" doesn't even merit backup status to Manning ... and the trade talk is a mere 5th rounder.

Like Tebow or not, he got screwed here.

I am a big big fan of Tebow but when you get a shot at Manning and it costs only money it's hard to say no to that.

It's a game changer.

Tim Tebow got to play QB in the NFL.
Tim Tebow got to play QB in 2 postseason games.
Tim Tebow got enough exposure to be a marketing brand up with Tiger Woods at his prime.
Tim Tebow will still get to play in the NFL.
Tim Tebow was paid millions of dollars.

Tim Tebow, and I love him to death, is gonna be ok. The terms by which you exist in the NFL are well known to all before entering.

I wish him the best but if this is the worst thing that ever happens to him, he is in for one hell of a life.

the Broncos paid him over 10 million. he can cry on his jesus shaped pillow for all i care.

it is a business, and business is best when you are winning championships and sadly a guy who can't complete 50% of his passes won't win championships.

Tebow's gonna say, true to form, that he thanks Jesus for the opportunity to play with such a great team as the Denver Broncos and that everything is in God's hands. God has a plan and that plan appears to not include the Denver Broncos. He's gonna walk the walk and not be a hypocrite. Why can't you?

If the NFL was fair, then I would agree. But if I had a nickel for every guy in the NFL who had ever gotten a raw deal, then I would have a lot of nickles.

He's a good guy. I can't begin to understand why he seems to bring out the worst in some of his fans. But he deserves a great life. And I would bet that he'll get it.

Truly, in an ideal world, I'd love it if he stayed here for the next 2-3 years, and was groomed, a la Steve Young. But I don't think he wants that.

I'm not a Tebow guy, never thought he had an NFL skill set. But still ... just statin' the facts here.

And baja, I agree on Manning. But now Tebow's not even a backup?! And we're peddling him for a 5th rounder?!?!?

How soon we forget .......

John should be somewhat embarrassed.

That's not confirmed. He could very well be our backup.

Your GM says you're gonna be the guy for "a long, long time," then starts shopping you for a 5th rounder 2 frickin' weeks later?

And that's okay with everybody? Really?!

I've been one of the biggest Tebow supporters out there but its the big leagues and the bottom line is winning Super Bowls. He's a big boy and he'll move on, I don't feel he got shafted in any way, he just wasn't what EFX was looking for in a QB

You forgot to insert the minor detail of the Manning signing between "starter" and "shopping." Sort of a game changer, don't you think?

Tebow would be a great back up, I would love to see him learn under Manning for 3-4 years as it is what Tim really needs in order to be a great QB down the road. I think that Tim could even buy into that. It is his fanboys that the Broncos need to get rid of, because the Broncos doesn't want a freaking billboard every time Manning has a bad game (and it will happen) nor that distraction.

Once again there has been no decision on Tebow's future.

Even if that 5th round crap is true, it would only be because NO other team thinks he is worth more. That says a lot.

A raw deal? Huh?

They drafted him higher than anyone else would've and paid him more than anyone else would've. They allowed him to be an NFL QB when nobody else did. They're dangling him out there to anyone who wants him right now.....and nobody is jumping at the chance to make him their starting QB.....or even their backup QB. Even though his cap hit is near the league minimum.

We gave him a far better deal than anyone else did (or is). Think about it. If it was that raw a deal, every other team would be jumping all over the chance to sign him now for nothing. They're not.

yeah, he was clearly undervalued and mistreated by this FO. all the knuckleheads are saying its the NFL and he isnt owed anything and that is idiotic, he clearly has earned his keep based off what he did last season but whatever. I hope he stays and learns a few things from old greybeard and is ready to go when he get his chance but I dont blame him for moving on.

either way, now that I've calmed down and reality has set in, it is what it is. Manning is a HOF QB and a good guy and I'm not going to cry about it, its over..
