A thinking man's offense. I like the idea, but Tebow's teammates probably wouldn't. They've already suffered through Orton and Quinn and would be very upset to have to deal with another QB, especially during crunch time (read: last 5 minutes of a game). They're used to seeing Tebow work his magic and pull out improbable wins with little time left on the clock.<quoted text>If Quinn, Orton or Tebow are the answer, I'd hate to know the question. Those were Josh McHoodie's picks/trades. I don't think the QB for the future of the Bronco's is on the roster. I can't see Elway staking his cred on any of them. Orton's gone already, Quinn should go, they should keep Tebow but use him where he's most dangerous, in the red-zone. He has a nose for the end-zone. What about creating a package where a pocket QB moves the team down the field with the understanding once they get inside the red-zone and diffent attack takes the field. Football has remained fairly static, basketball has evolved with a small quick lineup to take the place of the starters when they rest the starters, baseball has evolved with the closer role, football should learn from them because the closer in football is really the red-zone offense. Take advantage of the bend but don't break defenses buy making them bend until they get in the red-zone, then change it up on them. Might work, might not. Thoughts?
Besides that, who is Denver going to get to run the offense when Tebow is on the sidelines? They haven't had much luck with that sice Plummer left. And, if they do find someone to move the ball 60+ yards, whose to say that that same person wouldn't be just as effective as Tebow in the red-zone?
I think your plan would work if Denver brought in an aging veteran to mentor Tebow. Someone like a Hasselbeck to show him how to prepare for and read pro defenses. I'm betting that's what Elway will do.
