    Tim Tebow: Hope Returns To the Denver Broncos and Their Fans (Article)

    Even if Tim Tebow canít carry the Denver Broncos to victory Sunday over the San Diego Chargers in the season finale, he has given all of Broncos Country one thing as a new year beckons:

    Hope. Unyielding hope.

    That may not sound like much to fans of other teams, but after what the normally fiercely loyal Broncos fans have been through the past two (and if you include the epic Shanahan collapse of 2008, three) seasons, you might as well have just handed them the Lombardi Trophy.

    Think about all the Broncos faithful have been through the last two seasons. After blowing a three game lead in the AFC West in 2008, owner Pat Bowlen decided to clean house and fire Shanahan after he delivered the teamís only Super Bowl titles. Out was the established hand and in was a 32 year old hotshot from the three time Super Bowl champion New England Patriots, offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels.

    McDaniels almost immediately began taking trade offers for quarterback Jay Cutler and Cutler became irked. After an embarrassing back and forth between the quarterback and team, Cutler was shipped to the Chicago Bears for Kyle Orton and a pair of draft picks. Take another dustup with Pro Bowl receiver Brandon Marshall, and another epic collapse after a 6-0 start, Broncos fans thought theyíd hit rock bottom.

    Then 2010 started.

    After a disastrous 3-9 start coupled with a bad to sequel to the first Spygate scandal, McDaniels was fired and replaced on an interim basis by running backs Eric Studesville. After one game, Studesville turned to what may be the one bright light of the McDaniels era and what a bright light it could be:

    Tim Tebow, the supposed Mile High Messiah.

    After Orton suffered a rib injury, Tebow was given the Week 16 start against the Oakland Raiders. Even though the Broncos suffered another embarrassing defeat to their arch rivals, Tebow showed enough, including a spectacular 40 yard touchdown run on what Tebow and Studesville called a broken play (Tebow was actually graded a minus on it), that Studesville went ahead and gave the rookie another start at home against the Houston Texans.

    At Mile High, Tebow brought the Mile High Magic back and in a big way.

    Down 17-0 to the Texans, it seemed like Broncos fans were in for another letdown and another blowout loss.

    Pardon the pun, but hold your horses.

    With Tebow in command, the Broncos stormed back. Despite an admitted boneheaded interception in the end zone earlier in the game, the rookie quarterback bounced back and willed his team to a 24-23, running the game winning score from seven yards out in himself. Finishing the day with over 300 yards passing and two touchdowns (one passing, one rushing), Tebow gave Broncos Country the best Christmas present they could have asked for after such a disastrous season:

    Hope.

    Itís hard to believe that this was the same offense Orton was fizzling with only weeks earlier. He may be the better quarterback than Tebow right now, but No. 15 brought something to the huddle that Orton definitely was not bringing:

    Passion. Fire. The ďitĒ factor.

    Whatever you want to call it, Tebow brought it. For anyone who doubts that, take a look at the SoundFX segment on NFL.com where Tebow was wired for sound during the Texans game. Did you ever see Orton running around shouting ďLETíS GO!Ē to his teammates?

    Didnít think so.

    After many years of suffering since the retirement of John Elway after winning Super Bowl XXXIII, Broncos fans seemingly finally have a quarterback they can fully embrace. Fans never really were behind Brian Griese, Jake Plummer, Cutler or Orton. Sure, they all had their backers but no player since Elway has brought the fans together like Tebow has.

    Speaking of Elway, it sounds like it is just a matter of time before it is announced that he will be joining the Broncos front office in some kind of executive capacity. What authority Elway will have exactly remains to be seen, but having him back in the organization can only be a good thing.

    Tebow at quarterback and Elway in the front office to surround him with talent and advise the young quarterback.

    Sounds like Orange and Blue Heaven to me.

    Even with the imminent hiring of a new head coach, all of Broncos Country seems to have reborn with such great optimism. Maybe they donít have to sit through years of losing before even tasting contention like the Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs have. Maybe the corner will be turned much sooner than anyone expected.

    Broncos fans, you can see clearly now. The rain has gone and a new age is ahead.

    Nuff said. Luck will be a Bust, Tebow played against SEC defenses, the best of the best in college football. Luck, not so much.

    I think Luck has bust potential. Some reason's why I think this:

    1) Never played in a bowl game or any big game (how does respond under pressure).

    2) Has had only one good year in a soft Pac ten where Cal and UCLA are irrelevant and USC is ok.

    3) Is super hyped by the alleged critics as a cant miss QB

    4) Stanford had an easy schedule this year. I mean they played my alma mater Sac state, which is a division two college program.

    Now if Luck was to stay one more year and play at the same Level as this year he can remove a lot of doubt. But any NFL team that would draft him this year is unjustified and doing so because of the hype.

    If he was smart, he would stay for his senior year. His chance for success in the NFL goes up if he stays 4 years IMO.

    Will we allow Tebow to have a bad game?

    I am a little concerned about our fan base when it comes to Tebow. Would the bronco nation allow him to make mistakes, have a bad game or two...or even a bad year? I think back to Elway's first year in the league and I wonder if Tebow would be allowed to grow and make mistakes before we push him to the curb and start the "Trade him away" posts.

    With the game today...if Tebow plays poorly or loses the game, would bronco nation give up on him and begin moving on in a different direction this off season?

    I am not sure Tebow can have a bad game. He's like that boxer that even losing bad shows heart and soul and thus will always be a fan favorite.

    I feel that he will do what he has always done and that is try to win and if the coach's give him the play's and turn him lose he will give every game he plays 100% and he will try his best to win that is all I want from him. Will he make mistakes? Yes he will but he will also win games, and yes he will lose games no doubt but he is Tebow and he will do his best to win period...

    Yep, I've liked the Tebow pick. Now, if we have several seasons or games of 1-2 TDs and 6 INts, then I'd get a bit miffed.

    He'll be crucified if he has a bad game. Tebow is playing without a net right now.

    With Tebow, me as a fan is willing to wait for him to learn because he plays with such excitement. I am so excited for today's game and I haven't felt this way since Cutler was playing for us. I realize that it takes time to develop. You don't think that there were Indy fans ready to crucify Manning after his horrible rookie season? I say just have patience with the kid.
