Elway's First Season Game by Game

After watching the game yesterday, I heard the phrase wildly inaccurate, and incompetent. That got me thinking about Elway's first season game by game. We have this poor misconception that every QB has to be just like Elway (Unfortunately we only think about the skilled polished post 1993 version of Elway). I guess if you look at Elway's progression in his first season based on the stats would you really say that Tebow's first few games are all that different than Elway's?
