First of all say what you want about Kyle Orton and how he is so deserving to be starter, or how Tebow needs to sit on the bench and learn behind a great QB like Aaron Rodgers did (Brett Farve) or Steve Young (Joe Montana) name a QB who sat behind mediocrity and did well in the NFL? But this post isnt about that
Tim Tebow being told that there would be a fair QB competition. There hasnt been. Tim Tebow has been with the second stringers and Kyle Orton has been with the starters since day one of training camp. You cant say that who tim tebow plays with doesnt matter because now that Brady Quinn is looking better he is now sharing reps with Tim Tebow on the second string. So what does that tell you? It tells me that John Fox and Elway and Xanders NEVER believed or even gave Tim Tebow a chance.
So what does Tim Tebow have to do to get a chance? Well John Fox said he wants a gamer so all Tim Tebow has to do is be a gamer show the brass that he can play in the pocket. He has to show that he doesnt have to run outside all the time. But will that be enough? NO it wont not only does Tim Tebow have to exceed expectations. Kyle Orton has to be well below expectations and he only has 12-15 plays 2 do it. Tim Tebow will have to keep it up for at least half a game. If this was a fair competition dont you think Orton and Tebow would be sharing the 1st string in this preseason game?
Actions speak louder than words. Tim tebow should have been getting first team reps this year until he was dis proven. My boy Skip Bayless says that this is just a ploy to keep Ortons value up for the Miami Dolphins and I hope that is true because if its not then IDK what to think about EFX.
I have been a Broncos fan my whole life. John Elway is my Hero. Im here to tell you right now I'm not against Kyle Orton. I'm not for Tim Tebow either. what I am for is open and fair competition and this year hasn't been one. Kyle Orton has been appointed the starter and if Tim Tebow becomes the starter this year you will know he earned it because coach Fox defiantly hasnt been fair this off-season. I want whoever gives the broncos the best chance 2 win and not giving Tebow a fair shot is not the way to find that out.
