Default Source: Tebow is Broncos 4th best QB

Broncos officials see Tebow as fourth best QB in camp

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on August 23, 2011, 3:35 PM EDT

Tim Tebow AP

A rough month in the development of Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow is about to get a little rougher.

Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports got some some eye-opening quotes from various members of the Broncos organization that will make waves in Denver.

“If everything was totally equal, and this were a competition based only on performance at this camp, Tebow would probably be the fourth-string guy,” one source told Silver. “Kyle [Orton] is far and away the best, and Tebow’s way behind [Brady] Quinn, too. And I’m telling you, Adam Weber is flat-out better right now.”

Weber, an undrafted rookie, has no chance to actually pass Tebow on the depth chart. But Weber has looked impressive when given the chance, and Tebow is struggling to work under center or grasp a pro offense.

One Broncos executive says to, “Forget about how [Tebow] delivers the ball, or how accurate it is. First he has to know where to go with it.”

We’re getting to the point that this feels like piling on. It seems clear Tebow has a long way to go, and this Broncos staff may have a hard time ever embracing him as the answer. They see him as a project.

Silver confirms the Broncos were willing to trade Kyle Orton to the Dolphins for a third-round pick at one point. Receiver Brandon Lloyd called it a “relief” when Orton stayed put.

“Sometimes the best things that happen to you in life are the things that don’t happen,” one high-ranking official told Silver.

The usual caveats apply. Tebow was always supposed to take time. Through hard work, the Broncos think perhaps he could improve enough to start.

Maybe Tebow will be a succesful starter someday, in Denver or elsewhere. If that happens, we’ll hear a lot about how Tebow proved the “haters” wrong and overcame some low moments in his career.

It’s hard to imagine it will get much lower than being called the fourth-best quarterback on the Broncos, by the Broncos.

If this is true, what the hell were the Donks doing trying to move Orton?

Remember when I said that 20,000 past QBs coming out of college would "look" better than Tebow? This is what I was talking about.

Ironically this is an argument about why Orton and Quinn shouldn't be starters over Tebow anymore than Weber... lol

Because any conventional "show pony" QB groomed conventionally will look better than Tebow in practice.

Tebow is so talented he didn't have to go that route.

If these guys had Tebow's physical ability they wouldn't look like show ponies either. They'd be playing like Tebow.

PS.. I think Brandon Lloyd is the one spreading a lot of this ****. Him and Orton may be the biggest p***Y tandem in the entire NFL they are perfect for each other. lol

It's a downright shame they have to adjust from their tried and true tactic of "He's a drunk", "he didn't call back" etc

My god........... This is beyond ridiculous now.. What kind of BS is Silver stirring up now?

All of these hacks are trying to write an article with anything "Tebow" in it to get readers, even if it means making crap up.. Give me a break

Same source as all the trade rumors or...?

Honestly, at this point, I'd say let Tebow go somewhere else if this is the type of BS he'll be dealing with his whole time in Denver.

Let him go to a coach who knows how to use him effectively. Fox is definitely not that coach IMO.

Steve Young sucked a** in Tampa. But Walsh saw something in him and made him a pro bowler. The right coach will get Tebow going.

Just remember.. we are talking about practice versus real games..

That's like horse versus one-on-one.


This is like saying Steve Kerr is a better basketball player than Shaq because he is a better shooter..

That's what it is like comparing a guy like Tebow to guys like Orton, Quinn and even Weber..

its a big mystery, coulda been a bluff. But when the GREAT Tim Tebow is 4th string on the depth chart, then there is something special going on in Denver. That means Orton and Quinn are playing at a level that we have never seen before.

Because Orton asked for a trade....the Broncos didn't actually want to trade him. But we have a long standing policy to accomidate players.
