No one was exactly "beating down his door" the minute he was made available. It remains a fact that for a QB who cannot consistently put the football where it needs to be, it's N(ot) F(or) L(ong). I'm personally not convinced he will still be on their roster by opening day... not with Belichick already showing impatience with media questions about him on the first day he was there.

I'm sure they meant a starter's gig, but feel free to soothe your butthurt by thinking he's still some great QB....

I think most of us who had issues with his QB play didn't really care if he landed a job or not, as long as it wasn't in Denver....but dreaded having to read the laughable conspiracy theories and retarded takes of his potential to revolutionize the QB position forever by you and your clown posse being reinvigorated if he did land a job.

Does a 3rd stringer even get to hold the clipboard? I'm thinking clipboard-holding is Mallett's job...

well, back in the day the 2nd stringer wore the baseball cap while the 3rd stringer held the clipboard and fetched the coach gatorade......

Is that what we're revising it to? The 1,000 times I read "if he's an NFL caliber player, why hasn't anyone signed him?" We're now supposed to to a memory wipe and pretend that all those times it was about whether some team was going to sign him and start him after he was cut.

They can stash him away on the PS and use him as preparation for option/pistol attack offenses.. San Fran and Seattle.

yeah, you're right...few if any believed he would be signed as a starter.

welcome to the scrap heap Timmy......

That sounds plausible, except guys like RGIII, Kaepernick, and Wilson are adequately able to present the threat of throwing the ball......

Where he is is where he should have been from the beginning, learning behind a solid starter for a couple of years(in the present case a HOF QB)

He never got the opportunity that a Brock Osweiler is getting even though many felt he earned that opportunity for his amazing season when he took over for Orton

This feels a whole lot better. I'm hoping the toxin dissipates quite a bit and people can just enjoy football as it relates to Tebow.

People want to minimize it, but a huge part of the Tebow story is he was behind very frustrating, basically infuriating FAILs at quarterback. Kyle Orton would have been in a quarterback controversy if Terrell Pryor was behind him.

So you're assuming he's already starting to regret the decision rather than simply setting boundaries with the retards in the media? It's interesting the way people interpret things...

Maybe he would have been better off to have gone to a team with a very good to great QB and sit and learn.....but unfortunately for him he didn't.

But also keep in mind when the Broncos were pursuing Manning, he stated the starter's job was yanked out his hands...and of course the flak the Broncos had to endure from the Bieber-esque fans of his who felt their hero was ****ed without being kissed....so I'm not too sure he'd want to be placed in such a scenario.

I'm sorry but I still believe his adoring fans will find some way to sabotage even that.....they'll call in to radio shows b****ing about why he's not starting (or being utilized at the least) because Brady threw two INTs....or the Patriots fail to convert on 3rd and goal and have to settle for a FG.....or Tom has a rare off day....etc.

And if he were to start or even see the field, and plays poorly (because he isn't very accurate) their laminated excuse chart of bad coaching, poor support from his team mates, or yet another coaching staff that failed to develop an offense around his "unique" and "special" skill set will be all we'll hear....again.

It'll be a never ending whine fest because the guy they think can revolutionize the QB position forever is being intentionally sabotaged by yet another coach who is stupid (I think that's Excuse #3 or #4, maybe Beavis can enlighten us)

I think the vast majority of Broncos fans are enjoying football without Tebow.....and you're probably right that Orton would be involved in a QB controversy no matter who was behind him, but you leave off the fact that Tim still wouldn't be able to beat anyone else out (Orton, Sanchez, or even Pryor) in training camp.

Yet he still couldn't Carpe Diem. Failing to beat out fails is a failure in itself. I never thought he won the job here, but rather given to him once the FO realized how bad Orton really was.

Maybe not -- but they're splitting the first team reaps for Geno Smith an Sanchez, bending over backwards to try and be able to say its Geno. A rookie pick is someone you bring along with a plan. Rare is the case that a guy fresh out of college is going to look better than a veteran. My point is that Tebow is not the first quarterback where onlookers wanted to get on with it and give the reps for development -- guys like Orton bring about that feeling. (And be honest -- there were a lot, not a little, a lot of people saying that Orton could be the future here. They were wrong. Which is okay, but the supposed furor about Tebow had a lot to do with a 3-13 season that was very frustrating).

Pryor? I'd be taking wild guess about him. I think you're taking a wild guess, but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt that you've gathered some good information about his abilities at the NFL level.

Good for Tebow; I think he will do well in that organization.

Tebow is very coachable, it's not his fault he ended up on the dysfunctional Jets. He will get back on track in NE

Especially when Mark Sanchez played as badly as he did last year, and Tebow still couldn't win the job.......but that's not a fail to Tebow fans
