Default A Plead to Mile High

We all saw it on Sunday. We all saw what was probably the most exciting comeback win in three years. It didn't matter that the game was "meaningless", because we all saw a flash of our glory days. And I know what you were thinking because I thought it too. I'm asking you, all Bronco fans, to stop it.

Tebow is not the next Elway because there will be no next Elway. Ever. We have been searching for him ever since 1999 and I think it's that we, as a fanbase, moved on. Elway was Elway because he was one of a kind. He made this franchise what it is today. He put the Broncos on the map. He was and is STILL the Broncos.

Tebow will never be Elway not because he won't be any good (we don't know yet), but because Elway was unique. Let's not anoint the kid too soon and, likewise, let's not cast him aside too quick when he inevitably struggles. And don't think for a second that he won't struggle, even Manning struggles. Let's not call him the next anything and let's let him develop into the next Tim Tebow, for better or for worse.

You missed your chance. If you told me all of that before the game, I was with you. Now, he has been unleashed and the Power of T times two is upon us. Just back away and get under something that can restrain nature's wonder. You have been warned. Teeeeeeeeebbbbbooooooooow!

Pandora is out of the box. Tebow is the face of the team.

He's the franchise.

Don't worry about him going away any time soon. The Broncos want to sell tickets, and they see what is happening in the stands as well as on the field as much as any of us can. This is their scene. They know how to market this. It's a done deal.

Remember Monday Night Football? Happy days are here again.

The nice thing about Tebow is he had his own mystique before he got here so no one expects him to be John Elway cuz he's Tebow.

this...right here

He was already a legend before he stepped on the field in the NFL.

Something tells me, unlike other QBs we have had, Tebow has the mental fortitude to hold up under the blinding white light of the media glare.

Yeah....Tebow has some bad and some good moments.....so if he can eliminate the bad, he'll be good.

What's amazing to me is that with most Rookie Quarterbacks - including Bradford who Tebow is easily outproducing this season - the expectations are that they learn a bit their first year, and show improvement. (Bradford is the 31st ranked QB by yardage this year).

With Tebow, the expectations are a hell of a lot higher. What's even more amazing is that he is meeting and exceeding these expectations. His passer rating is 20-30 above Bradford, 50 points above just about anyone else, and outperforming Orton to boot.

I still think that Tebow will have a 2 pick game before the end of the season. But the kid has something to prove, and is blowing away our expectations.

I think Berman said it best last night on MNF - the White Horses are starting to Gallop again, and it's a great sign for a team that hasn't had anything to root for in many many years.

The very best thing about Tim Tebow to me...

In Arizona, Bronco games will now be shown on TV!
We will get primetime games again.
We will get Nationally televised games.

All the splitting seas, punch holes in mountains, and riding donkeys through steets of palms is ok. But I can stay home to watch games!

Can't wait to come back to this thread in two years when Tebow is the media darling of the NFL and the entire World holds its every breath to see his next play and say "TOLD YA SO!"

We play the #1 ranked defense this weekend.

A lot of things can be learned from this game.

True, and I'm excited to see how Tebow performs.

If he can carry the team to a victory against a vastly superior team, I'll be even more impressed than I already am.

I just hope he keeps improving and continues to stuff it down the throats of the Mel Kipers, and Merrill Hoge's out there who refuse to give him any credit.

I waS thinking about this, we will probably get a handful of primetime games with Tebow under center, he's one of the top 10 biggest draws in the NFL already.

MNF here we come!

If the Broncos are in position to draft Andrew Luck they will do it... I like Luck, but I think Tebow will be a very good leader and winner. I hope for that reason alone that Luck goes back to school for a year!

We have literally ZERO chance of Luck as he will go number 1 in the 50/50 chance he comes out. And we cannot draft number 1. We will likely be 4 or 5 when we beat the Chargers...
