Tebow Gets Starting Job in Denver

I know I've long been an outspoken Tebow supporter on these boards, but this is completely objective.

Orton has sucked for a while now, so it's nice to see someone else get a chance. In the limited action he's seen, he's done remarkably well. Now is his chance to prove that he can win in the big time.

I don't mind Tebow getting his shot, because we knew it had to happen at some point if Orton wasn't setting the world on fire.

But wasn't he still the third string QB? What the hell happened to Brady Quinn? Not saying he'd be any better or deserved it, but wasn't he the #2 on paper in Denver?

I say give him his shot. The thing is, if he can't hit the 10 yard pass on a consistant basis he won't be around for long. I just don't understand the hype surrounding him. Sure he did well at Florida, but how many winning quarterbacks have we seen go from college to the NFL and be a flop? Sure he runs around like a chicken with it's head cut off, but heck I remember a few QB's doing that in the past. John Elway, Brett Favre, Steve Young, and Fran Tarkenton. Will Tebow be in that class? I don't know. He kind of reminds me a lot of the over-rated Brett Favre, a QB that will win and yet make stupid choices, but still be labeled a "winner" and a "gutsy" QB.

Yeah that was my question as well. This is obviously a fan driven move, and seeing some of the awful throws Tebow short hopped to his receivers on Sunday, this could get ugly vs tougher defenses. But oh well, you got what you wanted, Broncos fans. Don't start bitching and moaning when he ends up sucking out loud, you asked for it.

I never really believed that the "it" factor could over come large, gaping deficiencies, in quarterback's game. However, after watching Tebow this last Sunday... I am starting to think he is the exception to the rule. Obviously, its WAY too early to tell, but there is just something about Tebow, especially after watching him play Sunday.

I admit it does take mad skills to almost complete the comeback against San Diego. :rolleyes:

I'm not gonna lie... I hope Tebow tanks just because I find his supporters to be that annoying. I doubt most of them would even give a toss about him if he wasn't an outspoken fundie.

And on that note, the bigotry and hatred that has lead to the droves of people rooting against Tebow makes me wish he becomes a superstar.

I agree... and worse yet, he's a Denver Bronco, so I hope he double fails.

I could care less about his views/opinions off the field. He's a QB in the NFL, and that's all I care about, how he does in the NFL. I really don't get people who love or hate him because of his life views.
