Michael Irvin -- smarter than Elway?

I have never been a fan of Irvin, but in recent comments he has shown a lot more wisdom, common sense, and better judgment than Elway. On a link to NFL Videos from the current Horse Tracks, there is one titled "Tebow's Future", where the panel discusses Elway's recent public less-than-positive comments about Tebow: http://www.nfl.com/videos/denver-broncos/09000d5d8246c40f/Tebow-s-future Watch the entire video, but listen closely to Irvin's comments.

Michael Irvin nails it exactly at 1:34; check him again at 5:10. He voices basically the same comments I made in a FanShot Maybe Elway should hire Irving as a consultant on when to keep his mouth shut and what to say when he opens it. Deion Sanders concurs with Irvin at 3:10.

Even Mike McCoy gave a fair infinitely smarter reply to the 3rd-down problem, as compared to Elway's stupid response. McCoy said: "As a whole, all 11 guys have to do a better job of executing it, whether we’re running the football, throwing it, route technique outside, separating from tighter coverage. It’s all of us. We’ve got to do a better job." Now, this is an honest answer, and a correct one. He could have added "better play-calling" and "stop dropping passes", but we'll give him a pass on that (for now).

I recommend another article linked in Horse Tracks: "Tebow and the Meaning of Life", especially the writer's comments about Tebow "shooting the hostage". While you are there, be sure to read the comment by FreddieJ.

I hate to quote myself, but . . . "What accounts for this rather sudden transformation [a 4-12 team last year and 1-4 start this year]? Love him or hate him, the answer is Tebow. He is not a one-man show. He cannot win without the support and dedication of his teammates. But they believe in him, he depends on them, and together they now believe the impossible is within their grasp — a division championship, the playoffs, and the sky is the limit in the future."
