The whole Tebow thing speaks volumes of society. Honestly, I don’t really care whether he succeeds, fails, or muddles along. I find it really telling that ‘we’ seem to want him to fail. Personally, I am rooting for him.
The situation poses headaches for Denver long term. But for a smaller market team that does not get the press like the Jets, Cowboys, or Steelers – it is a boon for Denver to have the Broncos relevant and in today’s news. Here is where the problems lay…the dichotomy between the GM, Coach, and Front Office player personnel folks versus Ownership. It is a blessing for Ownership, but a bane for GM Elway and Coach Fox. The NFL is a QB league and there is no reason for any starting NFL QB to have stretches where he goes 0-10 passing. Tebow will continue to evolve. Without further evolution as a pocket passer, I question continued system sustainability, his health, and the commitment of the team to further build an offense around him. Time (and Tim) will tell.
Some analysts say Denver’s offense is not a long-term solution.
It’s not like Denver’s trying to win 5 Super Bowls in a row. This approach has exposed poor defensive technique and emphasizes pretty simple offensive tactics–but one tough dude at QB.
Who would have guessed 7-1 since Tebow took the snaps? Certainly not Colin Cowherd …
Nor Merril Hoge…
Tebow may indeed turn out to be a hypocrite, like other high-profile Christians in recent memory. Many of us want that to happen, because moral failure is something we understand. We know how to deal with disappointed expectations better than to trust those with goodness and desirable traits.
But win or lose, Tim Tebow will compete hard—and when he’s done, he will thank God and remind all of us that it’s just a game.
