Tebow
« on: October 10, 2011, 12:17:00 PM »
So Im watching my beloved Broncos yesterday. Not a great team…probably not the worst team either but close. San Diego is pounding the crap outta them. Its 23-10 at the half. Denver’s TD is off a pick 6. Orton has completed 6 passes for 34 yards and has thrown 1 pick with two others hitting SD backers in the hands but they dropped them. The fans have been relentless hating on Orton to the point that Billboards are popping up around town and Coach Fox is feeling the heat.

Last week in Green Bay their fans start chanting for Tebow. Never seen anything like that before.

Last season Tebow started the last 4 games of the season and did great. He energizes the team and the fans. This year we get a new HC…John Fox. Tebow is the #3 QB and got little chance in the pre season. Fox  keeps telling the media that he’s not ready. We see him every day not the fans or the media…..blah blah blah. One reporter responded…you’ve never seen him play a meaningful game in person so what gives? 

It has been real testy around here lately. I don’t think Coach Fox knew what he was getting into in Denver. It’s an NFL football town thru and thru and has been forever. Different culture than what he is probably used to.

So at the half they bench Orton….hop skip over Quinn and put in Tebow.

He missies a 90 TD pass by three feet right away. Runs for first downs…. throws for a TD…runs for a TD….extends plays here and there and everywhere…Denver RB’s start ripping off big gains…..SD does not know what to do with him….as the #3 QB meaning he plays scout team every week in practice.

Crowd is going nuts….defense comes alive and shuts San Diego down…Denver has the opportunity to win the game at the end but falls just short losing 29-24.

Here is the weird part. Crowd gives Denver a standing ovation after a loss. OK that never happens. You lose in Denver and projectiles are flying out of the stands.

So now Coach Fox has seen it for himself in person.

Get ready for Tebow now. This kid is one of the most dynamic players to come along in years. I don’t know what it is but when he is on the field his entire team rises above and beyond. Really strange to see but its about to start happening weekly. 

Denver isn’t good enough to make a run….but its going to be something to watch this kid play as the starter. Oh and some of the passes he threw after shaking off the dust…the pundits are way off !  The way he runs the football…the pundits are way off !  They say he will end up like Vick. Who knows, Tebow outweighs Vick by 40 pounds of pure muscle and is always leaning forward. He’s finally getting a real chance.

Somebody mentioned Tebow broke Emmett Smiths rushing records at Florida. It that correct? I know his passing accolades are top shelf but this is Emmett we are talking about.

Tebow Time!...and its about time.

It's been a long time since I've been this excited about my beloved Broncos.  I think that in 2 or 3 years, people will shake their heads and wonder why it took so freaking long.  The problem is the old IBM syndrome.  There was a saying in the early days of computing, "No one ever got fired for buying IBM."

That's what the NFL is about.  It's a wonder that any innovation ever takes place.  Tebow has crappy mechanics.  So what?  Tebow isnt accurate. So what?  Tebow holds onto the ball too long.  So what?  He's not interested in QB rating or yards per game.  He's all about the "W".  Reminded me of a young Elway when Reeves would finally take off the shackles in the 4th quarter.

Dude, we're going to lose anyway.  At least let us get excited about it.

Try Philly.  I used to live in Philly and listened to WIP 610 all the time.

I just started listening again last week.

They just described this past weekend as "the most devastating, emotionally-crippling weekend in the history of Philadelphia sports."

It makes Chicago sports talk radio look like a group hug.  Chicago sports talk radio is horrible.

After the Cowboys lost to the Panthers in the 1996 playoffs, a fan called in to WIP and said, "This is the happiest I've ever been in my life, and I'm coming from a viewing."

Now THAT is a sports town.

I don't even care about Philly teams, and I'm still listening.

Reminds me of Flutie.  All the guy ever did was win at every stop, every time he got a chance.  Never got a real chance until Buffalo, and even then they went out of their way to find a "real" QB.

I guess being at the pinnacle of a profession doesn't mean you're not dumb.

The kid is a football player. At the end of the day idk about mechanics or %'s, its all about points on the board. Thats where games are won and lost. Plus he didnt turn the ball over.
He elevates the team around him, in Denvers case maybe thats exactly what they need

You aren’t an NFL Sports town until you been to the depths of despair….55-10 SB loss to SF…and to the pinnacle of success….31-24 SB win over GB as a double digit underdog….and everywhere in-between. 27-10 SB loss to Dallas….42-10 SB loss to the Deadskins….39-20 SB loss to the Giants….34-19 SB win over Atlanta….

Plus losing an AFC championship game to Buffalo 10-7….and to Pittsburgh 34-17

Plus losing three times as the top AFC seed going one and done goodbye in round one…losing to Pittsburgh 24-17 and again 30-10…losing to Jacksonville 30-27

Once you have experienced that as a fan and are still a fan…you are officially an NFL Sports town thru and thru. Man I just looked all that stuff up...I cant believe I made it thru all of that !  >:( Now Im having all of these really bad flashbacks.

Yet if I were an Eagles fan right now I’d be at the edge of that cliff for sure.  :'(

Its funny I lived in Phoenix for a spell. Sports talk radio was about the Suns and illegal aliens. Shooting them along the boarder was a sport. Im not kidding.  ???

I’d love to tune into Sports talk radio in Chicago. Im a Cutler hater as well.  8)

CMcCoy@longhornsoup:  Yeah, but I quit before they made me cry like they did you....

The Phillies didn;t help maters much either but we're a dedicated yet psychotic bunch.

Actually know 2 people who have sold their season tickets, many are refusing to even watch them till Andy Reid and his regime is gone

That's not how it works in Chicago.

In Chicago, it works like this:

Caller: Do you think maybe Cutler isn't the best choice to get us to a Super Bowl?
Host: Well, I think he's pretty good.  But the offensive line doesn't give him much time.  But it's starting to come around.  Mike Tice is doing a good job with those guys.
Caller: Thanks.  You always have great insight.

Just remember, Mike Schmidt used to get booed when he'd drop his kids off at school.

And the Cubs are a drinking party/architecture-appreciation-club with a baseball game going on.  Philly fans would crucify them.

EXACTLY.

THOSE are the kind of calls Philly sports talk radio gets.

It's a whole other level.

All we've heard for the past few months.

Orton gives Denver the best chance of winning. 1-4  6-22
Orton can make all the throws. 6-13 and a pick, could have been 2 more.
Orton is more accurate. see above

Like it was said, who cares about mechanics as long as the offense is moving and putting points on the board.
