Tebow got exposed when they went to strictly 7 step drop backs once they got behind. I think the lesson for this season is to keep running the triple option....and hope a real offseason will provide TT the growth opportunity needed for traditional NFL dropback passing.
I think Decker will be a good WR in the slot, probably one of the better ones out of the slot. I really liked him when he was at Minnesota in college before he got injured.
As for Tebow I have heard two very interesting comments about him and his worth ethic. They were analysis on ESPN or maybe even ESPN Radio hosts. But they weren't questioning if Tebow worked out hard rather if he worked out smart. It was more to the point that he will hit the weight room until he drops but it isn't necessarily the smart thing to do if you are a QB. Someone also brought up more recently that when the lockout hit some QB's went out and worked out with QB coaches and QB guru's while Tim went and pumped iron.
John Elway and John Fox have a tremendously difficult decision to make in the off season. Its pretty clear that Elway isn't exactly enamored with Tebow but pretty much has his hand forced to bring him back next season. The key for the Broncos will be his development over the offseason and into next year. I don't expect him to be a starting caliber NFL QB going forward. I think he can be a useful QB, getting 10-15 snaps a game in specialty packages.
