    A little housekeeping…

    I try to keep up with all the latest news in Broncos Country, but something has escaped me and I need to call on my fellow BT writers and enthusiasts for information.

    Tim Tebow has had limited air-time on TV and radio over the past 5 days and has yet to post anything on Twitter and Facebook or his Website.  I have missed some of what limited interviews he has done.

    Has anyone heard Tebow DIRECTLY state that it was he that chose to go to the New York Jets rather than Jacksonville?

    I know it was stated by the Broncos’ organization and through the media that it was Tebow that chose New York, but has it been confirmed by Tebow himself?

    I have had little or no reason to doubt the press releases or public statements by John Elway and others from within the organization, but because they so strongly stated before the trade was eventually consummated that Tebow himself would be allowed to decide between the two teams, I have yet to hear it confirmed by anyone other than third parties.

    Have I missed something?

    It is not my intent to whip a dead horse or prolong the inevitable needlessly, but this seems like an important issue in the “grieving” process for me and perhaps others.

    What say you, fellow BT people?

     It was “implied” on the Dave Logan show yesterday that Tebow picked the Jets.  The reasoning was that he saw a better opportunity to be the starter in New York.
    I say “implied” because Dave Krieger had said “I can see why Tim Tebow would pick the Jets. . .”
    Where they got their information is anyone’s guess.

     I want to see the Broncos beat the Sh!tbirds so badly this year that when Elway is leaving the stadium the media hears him tell Ozzie Newsome, “we’re the reason you had to leave Cleveland”.

     I heard a bit of a TT conference call and he said he didn’t have any say in the matter.  I don’t think he is a very eloquent speaker but this particular call he was especially robotic saying, “they (Broncos) had all the power.”  To me it was obviously contrived and scripted.  Personally I think Tebow is being a little less than truthful with his response.

    Like you, I see no reason to doubt Elway when he said they were in contact with him (Tim) throughout the day.  I agree with jdkchem on how it is implied that Tebow chose NY due to a less obstructed path to the starting QB position with the Jets. 

  • flbronc

    having the power and having input are two different things. He is probably not coming out saying he picked new York to not smack his hometown in the face.

  • Hansen

     Very true, but I think he was implying he had no input.  I can see your point in how he didn’t want to smack Jville but I feel there was some word-play happening.

  • crazykid

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Elway said: “where do you want to go Tebow? Jacksonville? Ok, we’ll send you to New York instead then…”

    Some didnt believe Jesus rose from the dead until they saw/touched him.

    I heard Tebow in an interview stating “HE” chose the Jets because he felt more comfortable with the staff and players.  Jacksonville offered more money but Tebow believes Jets was the right move for “HIS” career.  He is a f&*’n hardcore football player not some cheap skate that gets bye in football. Wiki his page if you don’t believe me. Mark Sanchaz? Are you kidding me? Mark’s not going to last, Tebow’s taking his spot, similar to what he did last season.  It was a great move.

  • areferee

     Yeah.  I wasn’t there either.
