Merrill Hoge must be going to bed every night feeling like the dejected preacher Harold Camping who wrongfully predicted the end of the world several times. I am waiting for the alleged expert Hoge to say exactly what Camping said after all his flawed research and repeated failures, "I'm not embarrassed about it, It was just the fact that it was premature." Premature indeed. Broncos go to Oakland and walk away with a great victory, next to Kansas City where the Broncos run all over the Chiefs, and now Tebow and the Broncos sticking it to the Hard Knock Jets!
And it doesn't just stop at Merrill Hoge. There has been a line up of NFL experts, former players, and opponents that continue to beat down Tebow. Yet weak after week, game after game, fourth quarter after fourth quarter, Tebow finds a way to get the win and shut them up.
I am not as concerned as everyone else about who is the Broncos future quarterback. I am not focused on mechanics, his ability to throw great passes, or whether the Broncos will draft another QB. I prefer to live in the moment and enjoy all this Bronco excitement for once. We can review the "Tebow package" as a whole at the end of the season. He may be their future QB next year and he may not, who cares! Let's have some fun for a change. Plus, i like the storyline every week with the odds stacked up against Tebow and the Broncos and see what they can do to overcome it. Makes football entertaining.
The truth of the matter is Tim Tebow knows how to win football games and now gives the Broncos the best chance to win the AFC West . Especially with the Broncos surging defense.
The bottom line is the fans got this one right. They knew that Tebow would give them the best chance to win and they have not been disappointed. Just because you don't attend meetings, spend hours breaking down film, or wear a jock strap doesn't mean you can't pick out a winner when you see one. In the meantime, i am going to sit back and continue to watch Merrill Hoge and Harold Camping predict the demise of mankind and the Broncos as we sit back, win football games, conquer the AFC West, and laugh at their expense. Keep it coming boys!
