Default What on Earth is the Plan with Tebow?

The way that the youngster has been yanked around...it's hard to tell what the BBT's plan is for Tebow.

I want to say that they are just trying to be patient with him and to develop him as a QB, but that idea doesn't seem to hold up. If that was the case, then why have the Broncos continually offered him less and less full-speed play?

Its hard to discern what would be the madness behind the method here.

What do you think is going on with the BBT's handling of Tebow?

If he isn't going to get reps in practice and he isn't going to get snaps in pre-season games, there is no 'development'. Just release him.

Why can't he sit and learn for a few years?

What does he learn by sitting? If Fox wont let him get snaps in meaningless pre-season games, it's clear Tebow isn't in the plans.

That doesnt seem reasonable at all given how well he played last season in less-than-ideal conditions.

I would hope the plan for him is to sit him until he's ready to be an NFL QB. That's clearly at least a year away, probably two, and maybe never. I want the guy to succeed as much as anyone, but put the emotion aside and you'll realize it's not a horrible thing for him to sit and work his ass off and hopefully develop the skills he needs to succeed.

Sitting him now does not mean he will be thrown on the trash heap only to win 4 rings for some other team. It doesn't mean he will never succeed.

And it surely doesn't mean the coaching staff is dicking him around. In fact, I would not be surprised if he's #2 again next week and Quinn doesn't play at all after the starters get their long stint. Tebow and Quinn have been in a rotation with the 2's all camp; I doubt it changes next week.

I'm dead serious. He's not studying for the bar, he's playing a sport.

He spent all last year 'learning'. If he isn't going to get snaps in pre-season games, he's already done here.

Spider as usual... you make no sense at all.
yea the Tebownites want him to develop, as in you quote above, so then you follow up with "what's up with you Tebownites" like they don't WANT him to play and develop.. WTF are you trying to say?

What play? He was allowed to throw 2 passes tonite.

After starting the last 3 games last year he earned some consideration. He wasn't brilliant but he wasn't inept either.

I see four possible scenarios.

1.) The team wins 8 or 9 games under Orton, Tebow is used in special packages and sits for another year. Orton plays OK, but he doesn't get extended, Denver gets a comp pick and Tebow and Quinn compete to start in 2012-2013.

2.) The team tanks, Orton sucks, gets hurt or both. Tebow starts the second half of the season and plays well enough to win a couple of games and the team finishes with 5 or 6 wins, too low to make a move to draft Luck. Tebow gets a leg up to start in 2012-2013.

3.) The team tanks, Orton sucks, gets hurt or both. Tebow starts the second half of the season and sucks too. The team finishes with 3 or 4 wins and it's Andrew Luck come on down.

4.) The Mayans were right. BOOM GOES THE DYNAMITE! MacGruber spends his last moments on Earth vigorously masturbating to a Timmy underwear ad, even though Tebow wouldn't approve.

There's no plan.

Welcome to Denver, Andrew Luck.

I bet Tebow could do a better job of applying the Rule Against Perpetuities than Orton. Orton would curl up in a fetal position at the "lives in being" part.

You're projecting again! will you never learn

It doesn't make sense though.. if they planned on playing Tebow at all this season you would think they would give him more prep now.

It seems like they want Quinn to come in if Orton gets hurt or loses a lot.

None of it makes any sense..

"gamer"

LMFAO

I think what Spider's trying to say is some Tebow fans want him to be given the starting job NOW.... whether he's ready or not. The team, however... is far better off with the decision to grant him the luxury of time to learn, develop and hone his skills (and fundamentals).

I think it's clear this team does not see Tebow in their future.
