Default Is it time to start Tim Tebow?

We have **** the bed. The season is in the doldrums. I am pretty sure Quoydogs just quoted the stat, 365 with only one TD. That was why we hated the cannon armed beetus.

Taco, I never thought we'd be 2 and 6. I agree with you now.

Week One was the time to start Tim Tebow.

Better late than never.

Time to start letting these lazy bums do cocaine on the sidelines, just like the Cowboys did back in the 90s. Maybe it would give them some pep-pep. Most of them look like lethargic asslickers out there.

This argument will depend on if you support the philosophy of sitting a rookie QB for the first year or not, IMO.

If you think Tebow isn't ready no matter what, then you have to think long-term and what is best for his (and the team's) future.

If you think that guys should be put in right away to get game-time experience, etc, then yes we're not making the playoffs either way, so we might as well see what he can do.

I personally don't think we should start him, but I could understand the argument for him playing.

Tim Tebow has to be one of the most mentally tough QBs ever to come out of college. Put him in there.

My preseason Broncos Super Bowl bet is looking like a bad investment.

I don't think Orton is anywhere near the future with our ultra impressive 7 1st quarter points on the year and garbage time stat padding, but the fact Tebow isn't even getting any pass plays to run concerns me.

Only so people could see how ridiculous of an idea it is.


I would like to see the kid throw the ball at some point, though.

No, but maybe you give him more plays and get him some throws.

Well either this or just using him on the goal line.

If you're going to put him in at the 50 yard line, he has to be a threat to pass. Or just save him as a big athletic body at the goal line.

Yes... these last two losses are just plain embarassing. Orton's not playing badly, but he's not winning or rallying the team either. Put Tebow in and try to makes something... ANYTHING happen.

Unless it means a whole gameplan of runs up the middle, which seems to be the only play we've got for Tebow in the playbook.

At this point, why is it ridiculous. Give him a simpler game plan and let him play. Its not like its gonna ruin our super bowl chances.

Is it more ridiculous to waste half a season not developing him so we're even more fcked next year for two fold reasons?

1. His development is slowed.

2. What if he just sucks and we didn't get a look at it in game action and now we're boned for another year?

**** no.

It was "no" last week, it'll be "no" week 10 coming out of the bye. It'll be "no" week 16 if we're 2-13.

He turned 23 in August. He's in need of a significant overhaul to his mechanics. Let him have a year of getting up to speed with limited touches instead of making him carry a team with a piss poor OL and half the defense out with injuries any given week.

In 2011 the young OL will have time to gel, we can let Orton maximize his trade value for a draft day flip, and the defense can hopefully be retooled and re-energized with some new talent on the DL. He can start then at the ripe old age of 24, with Thomas and Decker better prepared to help him along with Lloyd, Gaffney, Royal, etc..

People want Tebow in there behind this OL the way it is playing? Why? So give them more **** to complain about if Tebow doesn't play well, which is highly likely? The QB play is not the problem on this team. Those that never liked Orton seem to think it is despite the problems on both lines inj particular.

Youre right, putting in tebow will kill our super bowl chances and slow down our offense that puts up 10-15 points a game.

He's a mentally tough kid who played very well in the preseason and is mobile. I'm ready to see what Tim can do. If you need to simplify the game plan, do it, but he'd hardly be the first QB to play in his rookie year. If he starts poorly, i trust it will not ruin him...he's too much of a competitor, too hard of a worker for that.

So, as opposed to letting Orton (who looks to be on the verge of a Pro Bowl season) further develop... we put in Tebow?

You're robbing from Peter to pay Paul, imo.

I LOVE Tebow. Don't get me wrong. If he starts, I'll be excited as anyone. But, I think Orton is showing himself to be borderline elite, out there.

Again, if Kyle doesn't drop that ball on a scramble... what did the guy do wrong today?

Tighten up his ball security and he's a top 10 QB, without question.

I'm probably overstating it as being a "ridiculous" idea, but when emotions cool and people look at what really happened today... Orton had us in a position to win yet again, and lame calls and pure ****-ups (one WAS his) let the game slip away.

I'll be happy either way, but I'm just concerned that we're looking at a very long time before Tebow is half the passer Orton is.
