Default Tebow-The silver lining

OK silver lining to drafting Tim Tebow, I have struggled with this pick since Thursday. Not because we took Tebow, but because we took him FIRST round! Tebow will be great character guy, and great for the community of Denver. Guarnteed he will run a great youth program and be a great face for the team. And who knows, with his work ethic he could become a great player, listen any one that knows me know that I countiunally have my size 10 Nikes in my mouth constantly. So Tim I will not be disapointed if you make me put my foot into my mouth once again

It's okay. Tebow will absolve you of your guilt.

Again, from a football perspective... if Tebow...

1. Contributes 10-12 plays per game as a multi-weapon
2. Serves as a solid back-up

He's already outpaced 70% of our first round picks over the last 20 years.

So, I'm not sure I see him as a "starter or failure" pick. Certainly, we all hope he winds up as one, and I believe he'll be given a true opportunity. McD didn't trade up to acquire a glorified back-up.


But, it's also just nice to see this team filling out with people that you generally want to root for.

So you are admitting to be a homer who is willing to roll over on his own opinion so long as it suits his McDaniels humping agenda. Got it.

It's okay to disagree with something the Broncos have done. Nobody is perfect, especially Josh McDaniels. Too bad that doesn't stop him from holding the players to a higher standard.

Know who else is a good character guy? Joel Osteen. That guy and Tim share the same chance of success in the NFL.
