Default Michael Lombardi -- "Bills beaten to Tebow by Denver."

Just a quick article from the NFP.

According to Lombardi, the Broncos beat the Bills in the trade-up for Tim Tebow. Looks like we sensed both our moves well, and got the players we wanted.

so to all the haters out there saying that we could have gotten Tebow with either the 43rd or 45th pick...wasn't gonna happen! Buffalo wanted him BADLY!

Beating the Bills to Tebow...talk about a ringing endorsement.

" Wide receiver Demaryius Thomas is a big-time player, and Denver got a great deal with him at 22. I also like the Tebow pick by Denver because the man who picked him is the man who will coach him — Josh McDaniels. He’ll get Tebow to play and lead the Broncos, plus this will make Kyle Orton a better player."

Lombardi loves most of the things McD does.

That is not the point. The Bills were interested in trading up for Tim, and the Broncos did what it took to get the player they wanted. I'm just stating that Denver wasn't the only team interested in moving up in the first to acquire his services. Understand?

some can't see thru the hatred of the pick to see there were other teams wanting to move back into the 1st for Tebow.

Tebow is a superb athlete, we'll have to see what McD can make of him.

I liked the comparison by dsmoot to Roger Staubach. Staubach was an IT factor QB in the NFL, he won games all by himself at times, and he was a 27 year old rookie, Super Bowl MVP.
