    Again, I'm not sold on him long term, but I'm saying I think it's still way too early in his career to make a fair judgement. If I were a GM I can't say he'd by my choice but hey what do I know. You can do a lot worse in your first 16 professional starts than Tim Tebow has, I do know that.

    Yeah- he threw for more yards than anyone on just ten completions lol...Pretty flukey wouldn't you say?

    One play went 80 yards...and that was what a 15 yard throw?

    He isn't an NFL quarterback.

    Actually- maybe it's too soon to know...I'm not impressed so far.

    Brian Xanders is still the GM. Josh McDaniels, the coach you reference, is enough of an "expert" that he was just picked up by Belicheck for the playoffs. I'm not arguing the wisdom of drafting Tebow in he first round, but it's not like we're talking about Joe Schmoe that made a bad fantasy pick.
    How do we know he's not Mel Torme?

    But he also just lit up the Steelers for over 300 yards in a playoff game. How many guys have done that? I was really hard on this guy for a really long time. But I've got to give him credit when credit is due. He's not nearly as good as some make him out to be (hello, Skip Bayless). But on the same hand, his detractors (and there are many) don't give him nearly enough credit. He throws a BEAUTIFUL deep ball.

    I think he has many similarities to Big Ben when he first came in the league. Throws a great deep ball, is hard to bring down, can scramble, and runs a limited offense. Why can't he be a lefty version of Big Ben?
    Are any of those QB's running threats? They're much better PASSING QB's and they sit back in the pocket and actually read defenses. Tebow just sits back there like he's trying to read 'Atlas Shrugged' in Mandarin.

    I mean, you do realize you're defending a guy who passed for 45.5% this year, right?

    I do wish the focus was on the Steelers (Polamalu?) D though. To not have at least one safety play deep in OT where a TD beats you is insane. This play aside, one trip-up by your CB and you are headed to the showers. Poor coaching and/or execution. That play should have resulted in a 15-20 yard gain, nothing more.
    It was a standard post pattern. Those are the kind of throws you teach 8th graders to throw on the 2nd day of practice. Not to mention it was the only read he had.

    I'm still wondering why the Broncos traded away Jay Cutler or Brandon Lloyd, who would have been a wondrous help, for that matter.

    I also found this to be funny.

    Geez, it's only Tebow's first full year as a starter.

    He isn't an NFL quarterback.
    He may not be Dan Marino, but that's what the so-called experts said about Kordell Stewart, who merely led his team to the AFC championship two times, losing honorably to the eventual Super Bowl Champions each time.

    If that's failure, most Bronco fans will take it.

    There are no guarantees that Joe Schmoe robotic drop-back passer will prove to be any better than Tebow. In fact, the results may well be worse.

    Re: Where's the Tim Tebow thread?

    These bitter haters make it sound like this is it. This, right now, is as good as Tim Tebow will ever be and there is no chance he will get better. This was his 16th career start. So essentially, he just completed his rookie year. And these people act like this is it, this is the limit.

    I guess we all need hobbies.
    Choo got it, dude.

    Tebow did a good job this year. Many teams did not even make the playoffs. A couple months ago, not very many people thought the Broncos were going to come nowhere near the playoffs.

    It was supposed to be funny, but name the one quarterback who beat Green Bay this year. (Hint- it wasn't Tevo).

    The worst thing that ever happened to Denver was beating the Steelers. If they had lost that game they could have made Tim the team mascot, gone out and gotten a real quarterback, and everyone would have been happy. Now they're stuck with the guy.

    Amazing how when the media starts hyping something how everyone just gets in line.

    It's not as if a stud franchise QB was all that likely to fall into their lap if they'd lost to the Steelers, though.

    See Flynn, Matt. He's available to whoever wants him.

    Re: Where's the Tim Tebow thread?

    Okay, but he's 1 guy, and with no shortage of other teams who should be in the market, is there some reason to think they'd have been the team to sign him? It just seems more likely to me that they'd have ended up with competition/backup like they will anyway.
