Tebow magic has been great in Denver and its fantastic seeing the Broncos
play better as a team as we conclude the final week of the season still in contention for the division. Now, that we have gotten over the Tebow magic it’s time to simply return to the idea of Tebow as a franchise quarterback. After reading Bucky Gleason (Buffalo News) critical but honest dream crushing dose of truth, I have had what alcoholics like to call a moment of clarity….Here is a quote from Gleason’s article:
"Questions remain about his ability to lead his team to the Promised Land. He crumbled under the pressure. He had three interceptions in the fourth quarter, when he usually does his best work. He thought he could bring his team back again but was greeted by a number of firsts.
Saturday marked the first time he threw three interceptions in one game on any level, and he ended up with four. He was picked off for touchdowns on consecutive plays, a first. He was intercepted on the road for the first time in his NFL career after 117 attempts. He lost back-to-back NFL starts for the first time".
Damn, that stings…. My message to all Bronco fans is simple. We need to be honest when we collectively take a stand here. If Tim Tebow
wants to be a franchise QB then he has to beat Kyle Orton
and the Kansas Chiefs
. Of course I know it’s a team sport and Tebow’s not playing defense and special teams, but he needs to have an outstanding game. A franchise QB will do a few things when a big game is on the line. They will lead by example, not turn the ball over, and not just manage the game, but actually help to make and create big scoring plays on offense.
To be a franchise quarterback you have to have the ability to be the cornerstone of the offense. Kansas City is not a good enough team to come into Denver with the game on the line for the division and beat us. If Tim is truly our guy his play alone should not let that happen. If Tim Tebow is a franchise quarterback then I know Denver is the better team. Franchise quarterbacks do not let the division slip away on the last game of the season at home. They can carry a team when they need to or inspire a team to give a 110%. I know Tebow can inspire, but what happens if we need him to carry us to a big meaningful win?
