The part about Elway being a competitor, I certainly agree. But I do think that mind-set is what probably allows him to think that the Broncos could be good with a mediocre QB.
That way, his legacy as a the greatest Bronco QB could remain intact & he could still look good as a successful GM.
He can't look good as a GM AND protect his legacy at the same time by KEEPING a player that he believes will play POORLY (if that's true- which it is not).

If Tebow does not do well (win), but Elway insists on playing him to make sure nobody threatens his personal accomplishments, as a GM, he will look bad. Therefore, he can not do both at the same time.

Rather pointless though, since the whole protecting legacy thing is totally idiotic.

If you want a cookie cutter QB get rid of Tebow he's not going to run out of bounds or slide or throw the ball away he's going to fight and not give up till they tackle him and one more thing put Orton in with second team and see how he does.

Tebow is a cancer. He will divide the locker room. Bronco's should cut him. Nobody would pick him up. He is a less talented Eric Crouch

Use Tebow for all those PR engagements and selling season tickets, and use Orton in the games.....

But if 4-12 turns into 2-14 then maybe A Luck is on the drawing board. I don't advocate purposely tanking a season, but if the Broncos "were interested in seeing if he Tebow could play" I think they could get away with 2-14 and make it look like they weren't tanking. Tebow's mechanics are pathetic

I don't consider it tanking when your attempting to mold a perennial winner, even if you have to take 2 steps back before you take 3 steps forward. I don't think it's 'tanking' by playing your #1 draft pick QB over a jouneyman QB, who can't possibly help THIS team- this year- or any year after that (he won't be there when the dough gets cooked so to speak). Besides, tanking is trying to lose. Playing Tebow is trying to win with your investment, while seeing if he's got what it takes.

It is not a waste to play Tebow. You either get to move on without him after the season or find out he has a knack for finding ways to win.

If it's the former, you get maybe the Franchise player the next year.

Yep, all four games worth. After the consecutive 4-12 campaign, Orton will walk off the field as a FA and declare: "My work is done here!".

(tears streaming down face) Oh, you are so mean! You beast! That was so cutting edge cruel and such a fresh volley, I'll never be able to respond to it.

Maybe, in reality, it's more like the classic, childish- little kick in the shin and run- response that comes when a person is basicly saying "I've got nothing".

On second thought, I won't even play your little game of sticks and stones, since it might be about right for you, but worlds beneath me. Go play in your sandbox.

Absolutely! I think the Bronco's "Wild Horses" scheme would work great with Tebow!
