Default The Duke on Tebow- I'm his biggest fan

Quote:
"Let's put it this way, I'm his biggest fan," Elway said. "He's one of those guys who -- if he comes out and is the player we hope he can be -- then we're in pretty darn good shape. He's a great ambassador for us as a team. He realizes, and I've told him: the bottom line is, 'You can do all those things and make all those plays that a lot of guys can't do, and that's something you have that they don't -- but you have to realize for us to be champions, you have to be able to win it from the pocket and make all those throws from the pocket."

For Christ's sake, Elway isn't gonna say something like that and THEN trade the guy. The freaking Tebowites would first stone him by throwing their season tix and then hoist him up on a cross. Elway may not be a great NFL exec, but he didn't sell all those cars doing stupid ****e like dissing the mooks paying for the rides.

Elway =/= Shanahan. We'll see if Elway is as big a fan of the outright lie as Mike is.

Sounds like Elway supports Tebow, but he left himself some wiggle room to get out of it if Tebow doesn't improve from the pocket. Elway pretty much said that he likes certain qualities about Tebow (leadership and play making ability), but if he doesn't improve as a passer then the team will be going in a different direction. I'm with that. Give Tebow his shot now to see if he's legit. If he's not, move on as quickly as possible.

I knew 7 would see the playmaker that Tebow is, it's like John seeing a younger/raw version of himself.

Tebow may not be as groomed as John was, at this stage of his career, but Tebow has the ability to make plays with his mobility. He can be taught to be a pocket guy and we all know Tebow will work & work and then work some more on becoming a complete quarterback.

I feel that John see's the talent and knows the effort will be there. He just wants to see it come together (as we all do) as soon as possible on the field. But as a GM/President he needs to support Tebow, but also show that if it doesn't work out the team will make a move to a new direction.

But for now it's Tebow time to show he can be the guy.

Elway knows what it takes to win championships and he knows that if you suck throwing the ball in the pocket, especially in the big games, the team will not win a Lombardi. Elway knows what he's talking about, he wasn't exactly the best QB in his first 3 SBs (not that he had much help).

It was only a matter of time before he realized what everyone else around here has...no quarterback in this draft offers what Tebow does. He's going to be a great one, just be patient. It's now time for Elway and the rest of the front office to throw their full support behind him. A quarterback needs to know he has the confidence of the coaching staff that he's the guy, not the flip flop that goes on like in San Francisco.

Maybe he feels like Tebow can take them to the #1 pick next year so he can get Luck

Really this isn't anything he hasn't been saying. I'm not convinced he's even endorsing him with these comments as much as everyone here thinks.

It's pretty hard to back away from "I'm his biggest fan." I mean, before this comment, Elway had left some wiggle room for people to believe that the Broncos might be willing to trade Tebow, and that Orton might even be the starter in September. Now you're led to believe that the Broncos are not only NOT going to trade him, but they will be giving Tebow the start in September.

At least that's my read on it. I'd be surprised if in the end it worked out any other way at this point.

Tebow is going to win the starting job in whatever we have that constitutes camp, but not because he's Elway's boy. He'll win it because Tebow is busy busting ass to be the very best QB he can be.

I can't wait to see Tebow next year. The guy has never put even half as much time into developing his game as he will this off-season. At Florida he was a student athlete and his practice time was strictly limited. He spent a lot of time doing charity and mission work over his summers. He's now had from the start of rookie camp last year, through all last season, and from the end of the season to now where all he's had to worry about and work on was being a better QB. Someone with his work ethic and love of the game is going to make something special happen given that much time to improve.
