  • Broncos' Tebow thrilled by Elway's pledge of support

    By Mike Klis

    A day after receiving a strong endorsement from the Broncos' top boss, Tim Tebow was sitting in the team's cafeteria this morning, sipping on a water bottle, reflecting on the 2011 season that just passed.

    Thanks in large part to Tebow's play at quarterback, the Broncos unexpectedly won the AFC West, unexpectedly beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in the first-round of the playoffs, then got clobbered in the second round Saturday night by the New England Patriots.

    Two days later, John Elway began his second year as the Broncos' head of football operations by declaring Tebow as the team's starting quarterback going into training camp.

    No one will beat out Tebow when conditioning begins April 16 — which is a monthafter free agency, by the way — or the organized team activities (OTAs) that will begin in late-May — or about a month after the draft.

    "Nice," Tebow said of Elway's pledge of support. "It's a great honor to be a quarterback for the Denver Broncos. I take that very seriously. I'm very excited about this offseason and I can't wait to get to work and get better."

    The Broncos have urged Tebow to give his body some rest. He's trying, but it's not easy.

    "I was going crazy yesterday," he said with a smile.

    He said thanks, but no thanks to a request by CBS Sports to join their NFL Today studio show during their conference championship coverage Sunday.

    "I'm not doing it," Tebow said.


    The Broncos were so bad in 2010, they picked No. 2 overall in the draft. They began 1-4 this season before Tebow finally got his chance to become the team's No. 1 quarterback. He led his team seven wins in his first eight starts, a run that lifted the Broncos to their improbable division title.

    Given his late-game heroics this season, did Tebow wish Elway had taken one more leap of faith by promising him the starting job for Game 1 of the 2012 season? "I don't care," Tebow said. "You have to go out there and compete, anyways."

    Exactly.

    Tebow took that a lot better than most of Tebow's fans. :thumb:

      Agreed 100% he has his shot, now he can gear up and begin working within a set offense. It's his time to step up and solidify himself as a franchise QB, I believe he will do just that. GO BRONCOS!!!!!

        Sounds like Tebow does not want to take it easy and wants to start working right away or very soon at the least.

        Coaches, Elway, lets go! Call him and he's there. Meet anywhere. Whatever it takes.

          A lot of people question whether the Broncos could ever win the Super Bowl with Tebow at QB. With the right supporting cast, I'm actually afraid of the Broncos winning it every year.

            People need to quit throwing around the term "franchise quarterback". Only a couple of guys rise to that level and not till they've battled in the league for many years.

            Tebow is a greenhorn. You can begin to make your judgement in year three or four. He's already shown he has the necessary "grit" to succeed. Becoming an accomplished passer in a highly functioning system takes all the right moving parts which are definately not in place at this time.

              Tebow's never been afraid of competition. Steel sharpens steel.

                There are three things Tim Tebow has a passion for, always have and always will.
                1. His Lord
                2. Those in need
                3. Football

                When he was a Nease, he was home schooled but showed his loyalty to Nease High School, where he was allowed to play, enough to win a state championship with a broken foot. When he was with Florida, he committed himself as a Gator. After a disappointing loss to Old Miss in 2008 he vowed that no team play harder than the Gators. They went on to win the SEC and the National Title that year. Now Tebow is a committed Bronco and will do what ever is necessary to help them win. He took a 1-4 team to finish 8-8 and to their first playoff win in 5 years.

                  You realize that the collective bargaining agreement forbids this right? I heard elway say he will work with him when he is allowed to.

                      The CBA limits the days of practices compared to years past, but as I understand it there is nothing wrong with Elway studying film or conversing with him about specific plays or footwork. There aren't nearly as many restrictions as there were during the lockout. I wouldn't be surprised if Tim and Elway on working together and throwing passes by February or March and definitely by April and May.

                        Yea....he showed so much loyalty he switched high schools so he could be a QB instead of defense. Is that the loyalty you speak of?

                          Yeah at the team facility and so forth. It does not prevent Tim Tebow from going to a local park and having a converastion and throwing a football around with someone or working on footwork etc.'

                          I am sure he will be in the facility when the CBA allows it, but I am sure he wants to put in work above and beyond that as well.

                              LMAO at the thought of Tim & Elway practicing in the backyard, Tim missing some instruction and then as punishment Elway makes Tim rake his yard & do household chores.
