Ok Bronco fans, I don't know about you guys but I am sick of all the talk, I want to play some ball. What I'm going to ask is really the most important question asked in the last two seasons combined. It is a franchise-defining question. I'm not brilliant for asking it because I am just the messenger. I am surprised this question has not been more prominently posed. Here it is:
WHAT EXACTLY DO YOU NEED TO SEE FROM TIM TEBOW THIS SEASON TO CONVINCE YOU TO STAY OR MOVE ON?
I ask this before he starts his first game this year so as to enhance the amount of objectivity. The media, of whom some of you are puppets for, will cloud the issue. I know that quantifying performance is sometimes not constructive. However, in this case, it is the best way for you to show your level of objectivity. Again, I urge you to answer this question BEFORE he starts playing, that way the lovers will be proven wrong and the haters will have no excuse either.
I urge you all, mostly quantitatively but also qualitatively, to tell me what exactly you need to see to convince you to stay or move on. Stick your nuts out a little bit and take a stand, either way. The more vague you are the more of a weenie you are.
Here are my expectations that Tebow has to meet for me to stay with him after this year:
- Average over 200 yards a game of passing
- Complete 55% of his passes
- More total touchdowns than turnovers
- Clearly elevates the play of his team
- Moves the ball down the field with regularity
- 3rd down performance
- Shows distinct improvement in pocket, with footwork, and with snap exchange
I would argue that delaying your answer to this might reduce your objectivity.
Finally, before the internet talking points are distributed, WHERE DO YOU STAND? PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS.
