Despite taking the Denver Broncos from 1-4 to 8-8 and into the second round of the playoffs, some are questioning Tim Tebow’s starting status in the 2012 season.
Are you kidding? This kid is next year’s starter hands down.
“He proved he can be a very capable quarterback,” Joe Mays said. “A lot of people didn’t give him a chance. He came out and proved everybody wrong. I enjoyed playing with him and he’s the only quarterback I know that thinks like a linebacker. He loves to hit people.”
Despite the backing from his teammates, and the fact that he did CPR on the hearts of Broncos Country week after week, the criticism continues to roll in from analysts.
There are quite a few people who believe that Tebow’s success is limited to his popularity on the web. The fact is that without him, the Broncos likely would not have made post season play.
“The guy won football games,” Champ Bailey said. “We won more than we lost with him, so he did something right.”
No spot is secure on any football roster, except of course, maybe Tom Brady’s spot on the Patriots. But as far as the eye can see, Tim Tebow will be the Broncos starting quarterback in 2012 unless something drastically changes.
“Knowing the person that he is and the kind of workout he has, he’s going to be hard to beat out,” Eric Decker said.
His 2011 season is going to be hard to beat out as well.
It appears that we still have some more growing pangs to weather, but the general outlook looks positive.
“I’m looking forward to seeing the kind of product we have on the field next year,” Champ Bailey said.
Having a quarterback set as the starter going into the off season is far better than when John Fox had to do last season by simply naming Kyle Orton the starter just because he was the starter in 2010.
This off season is sure to bring great progress and development in all areas, not just quarterback.
