    Uh, he was drafted in the first round.

    Well just about every expert thought that was completely insane.

    I see your point about the hype, but I can also see how he could be viewed as an under dog.

    Except for the experts that work in Denver's front office.
    How do we know he's not Mel Torme?

One does not have to do with the other.

    I think some think that people like me who just aren't buying that the current version of him on the field as being sustainable somehow are rooting for him to fail just so we can be right. I'm not that small minded. Were it not for fantasy football, I don't know that I could watch the NFL. There's very few players worth rooting for, IMO. I grow tired of all the chest bumping, taunting, and showboating that has become commonplace in any NFL game. The latest that has me annoyed as hell is the "first down celebration." I really don't like the theatrics that go into the current trend in TD celebrations, but at least it's for a scoring play. Now players feel like they need to dance for a first down, a sack, a good hit, a nice return, a good catch, you name it.

    .
    I think the opposite of that is assuming Tebow fans are thinking he is single handedly winning games, or God is somehow intervening on his behalf. (granted, like politics, there are extremists on both sides of the argument)

    Tebow is the 'role model' that so many fans have been waiting for. A superstar in the spotlight that gives of himself, holds himself to high personal standards, and freely deflects credit to his teammates, while taking full responsibility on behalf of his teammates when there is failure. Unlike politics, the more background checks, digging into his past, and stakeouts on Tebow....the better the story gets.



    They are predicting tonights game will be one of the most watched football games.....ever. That's got very little to do with Elvis Dumervil , Von Miller, Rob Gronkowksi, or the Josh McDaniels drama.

    Pretty impressive numbers for a 756 person phone poll.

    Right on. He's the guy the
    Sports universe and everybody else have been clamoring about and now that they have him, they can't wait to see him fail. Astonishing really.
    Witty signature.

    Re: Where's the Tim Tebow thread?

    This is the guy they've been waiting for?

    His story is great, except the part about not being a very good player.

    Terrific person, not so good professional quarterback.

    Re: Where's the Tim Tebow thread?

    Gonna be an interesting off season. Denver needs more offensive weapons.

    It's worth noting that this is Tebow's 16th career start (if I remember correctly). I wouldn't have been ready to bury Dalton had he struggled, and I don't think they're quite ready to move on from Gabbert in Jacksonville. Tebow has a ton of room for improvement and there's no reason to think he won't get better, heck he's gotten better as this season has gone on.

    The best thing Denver can do is try to get Orton back. With Tebow, they'll sell a lot of tickets and merchandise, but they'll be a .500 club at best.

    Haha I dunno man. I'm not sold that Tebow is their future there, but no reason to go back to Orton who couldn't win in Denver.

    If they look elsewhere they'll prolly draft someone.

    He completed two passes against the Chiefs. Two.

    The head coach who drafted Tebow was fired later that season. Unless they have the same GM, none of the above exist.
