Default Did Peter King Really Say That About Tebow?

Did Peter King just say that Denver might try and trade Tebow to Minnesota if McD signs there?

He also said that he spoke to Elway last night and said that Elway doesn't think Tebow isn't a very good QB.

Yup, he did.

And I really doubt Elway would say Tebow is not a "good" NFL QB to Peter King. That entire 26 seconds was complete conjecture.

You have double negatives. Just to clarify, are you saying that he said Elway thinks Tebow is OK or not very good?

Elway doesn't think Tebow "is" or "isn't" a good QB? I didn't hear it so I want to make sure I know what you're saying here...

Didn't he also say before that Elway flat out told him that JE did not think Tebow was a good QB?

Whatever your opinion is John, shut your ****ing mouth to the press. Did you really think that wouldn't be repeated? You're a VP with the Broncos now, not their retired former HoF QB.

Anyone who thinks we're not moving forward with Tebow is not in touch with reality. There aren't any prospects in the draft who are more appealing than Tebow, and we're certainly not going to move forward with Orton at this point.

Double negatives are a no-no.

It's funny how today this is coming out because in all the interviews and conferences that Elway and Tebow have been a part of this have never came out.

I think he said that Minnesota would be the aggressor in this situation...

It certainly makes for an interesting scenario... Get multiple high picks for Tebow and we still have Orton to play QB. The fan base would probably be highly opposed to this.

We could potentially get quite a haul for him though.. Could definately make this offseason even more interesting.

This is exactly what King said. Elway told Peter King, "Right now I don't think Tim Tebow is a good NFL quarterback."

I would take that as Tebow needs some work.

King jumped from that all the way to Tebow could be traded to Minnesota if Mcdaniels would land there.

This is both puzzling and alarming. For one, why would King make up such a thing? For another, why on earth would Elway ever make such a statement on the record?

It seemed like King was out there to say something, regardless of the actual reality of the situation in Denver.

Well the double negatives say the opposite of that but any time double negatives get involved it can get confusing.

I'm guessing Elway said what he's said in public, that Tebow is young, raw, and has a lot to work on. King then took that and ran with it like a loon.

Okay, that "right now" is really important to the context here. He's not saying he can't be or won't be, just that he isn't today or yet. Huge difference.
