    Tebow

    I just don't get the Tebow hate. The guy is basically a first year starter and he is winning games! What more do you want? It's not pretty but the guy wins.

    Kyle Orton was 1-4 as the starter, Tebow is 4-1. He may not be a franchise QB but the guy wins.

    Re: Tebow

    I'm not hater, but there is no way he can keep winning in that offense. It's only a matter of time before people stop it on a consistent basis. I will say that it is nice to see him win him.

    Re: Tebow

    NFL Establisment doesn't like him because he isn't a sit in the pocket QB and never will be... Media hates him because he where's his religion on his sleeve and you can't find any dirt on him... Personally, I hope he succeeds just to stick it to both.

    It's really funny all the double standards applied to Tebow. Almost every game I watch the announcers say that if a receiver gets his hands on it, it should be caught. In the KC, only ONE of Tebow's passes didn't hit the receivers hands and that is the one the announcers kept bringing up. Last night, there were a number of catches that should have been made, but with the worst receiving corps in the NFL, Tebow isn't going to get much help... How many passes has Decker missed the last couple of weeks?

    I also have zero idea what the hell the Broncos coaches are trying to do. The first drive they ran some option, got Tebow out of the pocket and got points on the board. Every drive after that they ran standard run plays, inside the tackles and kept Tebow in the pocket, it's no wonder it didn't work... Finally in the last drive, they took the reins off and what happens?

    Re: Tebow

    They were probably worried about him taking too many hits after Bart Scott put a big, smoking hole through Tebow's chest on that first drive. Bart just blew him up and I doubt Tebow could've taken too many of those before being injured by one.

    Re: Tebow

    The hate has just carried over from his college days. There is just something about him. I hate him.

    Re: Tebow

    I find it kind of intriguing what Denver is doing. NFL quarterbacks are generally paid too much to risk their injury running an option offense. But, if a team commits to that style they might be able to load up on several good option quarterbacks for a reasonable price and be able to risk an injury to their starter.

    He ran right over Bart Scott later too... People expect Tebow to get up and whine about hits, but he's built like a linebacker, not a typical QB so he can take alot more hits. It's also alot different when you are delivering the blow or see it coming then sitting in the pocket getting hit.

    Re: Tebow

    He certainly doesn't make it look pretty, but it's all about winning. And you can tell his teammates love him. I want him to succeed, for sure.

    This.

    The Broncos best receiver is Eric freaking Decker and they are running the ball with Lance Ball & Willis McGahee (when Tebow doesn't run it). I'd say 9 out of 10 first year starting quarterbacks would fail in that situation but Tebow isn't. He's winning.

    Maybe draft Collin Klein as a backup?

    Re: Tebow

    He's a differnt style that's for sure. Sure, sometime soon defenses will figure out how to stop him, but maybe by then Tebow will be a more polished passer. Keep in mind, he's quarterbacking a team that was awful last year. It's not like he's taking over for Matt stafford or drew brees.

    This is very hard to argue with. The guy has nothing to work with and his management decided to trade their best wide receiver, yet he wins.

    Re: Tebow

    The thing is, he really doesn't even need WR's, but he does need a good Tight End or two, then maybe a good speed back that can catch the ball. Could you imagine if he had Gronk and Hernandez as weapons?

    Make sure to give proper credit to the defense. In Tebow's 4 wins, the Defense has held opponents to an average of 15 ppg, forced 6 turnovers, had 2 defensive/special teams scores, and recorded 13 sacks.

    Von Miller should get as much credit as Tebow for the Broncos recent success, as far as I'm concerned.
