I haven’t been the biggest proponent of Tim Tebow’s since he entered the NFL, and I have long thought that Kyle Orton was an above average starting quarterback in this league. However, it’s time for Tebow in Denver.
In a week 5 loss to the San Diego Chargers, Tim Tebow pulled a Cam Newont–he gave fans hope for what could be. However ironic the situation, considering that Newton once sat as Tebows’ backup at the University of Florida, it has come to the fact that Tebow must start for Denver. With Orton struggling so badly against the Chargers and then Tebow catching them all off guard for a second half comeback, the tease would be detrimental to both the team and the fanbase.
We’re on a Titans site, so this analogy works: Kerry Collins plays bad with the starters, regardless of how good he is. Then, out of nowhere, Vince Young comes in the game and literally resets the season for the entire team. The offense, the defense and the special teams all played with a renewed hope. That’s the effect Tebow had on that team just by stepping out on the field. The line isn’t great, the run game seems to have resurfaced and outside of Brandon Lloyd there isn’t anyone worth bragging about at wideout. So, can Tebow do it? Or is he another Vince Young?
I don’t know, but I bet we find out soon.
