Wow, Cbad I take it you're not a fan of the Broncos. I could say "sour grapes" but then again as a Bear's fan, what do you have to be sweet over since 1985? The best thing the Bears did was to take Cutler off our hands. You can deal with the Cannon Arm that's more likely to pout then pass when it comes down to trying to make a play against a tough defense.
For those of you following this thread, you know good and well that I started out far removed from any Tebow bandwagon, and haven't given much more credit then he's due. That being said, give credit where credit is due. Tebow, much like every other starting QB in the league, will be given the chance during a game, to play against a prevent defense. It's not anything specific to Tebow, or the Broncos, or Mile High. If you don't like how he does against your prevent defense, DON'T PLAY IT! In the Bears game, he was 3 for 16 in the first 3 quarters. One point that always seems to get left out by the Tebow critics is the fact that there were at the very least, 5 catchable balls that receivers dropped. One was an almost guarenteed 6 points, and 2 others were drive extending 1st downs in Bear's territory. That puts him at .500 and a game total of 20 f0r 40 for 200+ yds, a TD, and a pick. I'm thinking there's at least 16 to 20 teams out there that would take that kind of day from their QB amd be ready to play him again the next week.
Will the Broncos beat the Pats? In my heart I think yes. But if I had to put money on it, I'd probably put it in on the Pats based on Brady and he ridiculous ways when it comes time for Dec./Jan. football. The kicker is, you have NO IDEA what Tebow and the Broncos will do against the Pats. Brady is Brady and always will be. With Welker and Gronk, and an unselfish offense, it's hard for anyone to keep up with in points. Their defense however is so absolutely horrible that they made the Redskins look good, so in that I say Tebow and company have all the chances in the world to exploit it. Hopefully we can run the ball down their throats, chew up the clock, and won't have to throw 40 times. The Bronco's defense will be the biggest key in how we play Brady. I say unleash Miller for the 1st quarter and if he's in Brady's face keeo it up. If we can't get to Brady then we sure as hell better keep the ball out of Gronk's hands.
As for Tebow's future in Denver, I'll bet my paycheck that WHEN we make the playoffs, Tebow's future will be safe in Denver for at least another season after this one. QB of the future? Who knows. QB of the next couple of years? I'm betting so.
