Broncos Have an Old Problem with their Young Quarterback
The Denver Broncos have a new coach and a new system. But they have an old problem brewing.
They have an old-fashioned quarterback controversy. It shouldn’t be one, but it’s going to be a problem for coach John Fox.
Mention the name Tim Tebow, and you are not sure what reaction you will get.
From high fives to a violent outburst, Tebow has become a lightning rod for reaction.
Fox wants Tebow to be the starter. He wishes Tebow would win the job. He wishes his job would easier.
Unfortunately, it’s not going to be that easy.
The love affair with Tebow, quite frankly, I don’t get it.
We are not talking about character. We are talking about playing ability.
If I had a son, I would want him to be like Tebow. That does not mean I want him quarterbacking my team.
The Denver Broncos are stuck in a PR nightmare as a lot of fans support Tebow, but common sense says Kyle Orton would be a better choice.
Former coach Josh McDaniel made the mistake of drafting Tebow in the first round. Just because somebody made a mistake and selected Tebow in the first round, it doesn’t mean Tebow is a first-round player.
He is a project at best and the Broncos should realize that.
But we are talking about a team that has screwed up this situation. Face it, the Broncos are a John Elway away from being as successful a franchise as the Seattle Seahawks.
Tebow was one of the greatest college quarterbacks. That’s COLLEGE. That does not always translate into the pros. He will do the work and give the effort, but it will take time to see if that pays off. In today’s NFL, first-round picks are expected to produce quickly. Being in his second season, Tebow is looked upon as being able to take over.
The Broncos have to do what’s best for the team and not was is expected. It was rumored that the Broncos may try to trade Orton, while there is some value. That will fix the problem if you remove on the players. But that will pretty much doom any chance the Broncos have of making the playoffs this season.
The fans want one thing, while the coach knows he has to do another.
You know you have to start Orton. You may not get the reaction you want, but you will win more games.
