This is an opinion article and does not necessarily reflect the views and opinions of the rest of the BT staff.

Of course, I must first start with a disclaimer:  I have been following quarterback Tim Tebow since his sophomore season at the University of Florida and have been a big fan of him since his collegiate football days.  I will continue to follow him throughout his career and acknowledge that he is an incredible athlete, fantastic football player and a great person with commendable character.

With that said, I have become increasingly disappointed and extremely frustrated with the magnitude of Broncos fans who have also followed Tebow — some of whom followed him all the way to New York.  There’s nothing wrong with being a fan of Tebow and hoping he has success with his new team, but some facts need to be set straight.

“I have been a Broncos fan for [a certain amount of] years but I despise the way John Elway treated Tim Tebow and will have trouble rooting for Denver this season,” has been said countless times on this site and many others since the team traded Tebow.  We’ll talk about that, first. 

Elway — though he did have a hand in the process — was not the one that “ran Tebow out of town.”  If you’re still bitter about it and want to have somebody to blame, spit your venom toward Owner Pat Bowlen, not Elway.  It was Bowlen who initiated moving on from Tebow.

Many fans mention all of Tebow’s heroics from 2011 and the fact that he won a playoff game in Denver last season.  Those same fans fail to mention all of the horrendous performances — including one a week after Tebow’s playoff victory — in a Denver Broncos‘ uniform.

Bowlen, who is looking for perfection in a quarterback, has one goal in mind and that is to win a Super Bowl.  Nothing comes before that — not money, jersey sales or fans’ opinions — and nothing will stop Bowlen from doing what he believes gives Denver the best chance to win a Super Bowl.  A 45-10 embarrassing playoff loss to the New England Patriots was the final straw for Bowlen, who had seen Tebow struggle mightily four times earlier in the season.

After the game, in which Tebow went 9-of-26 for 136 yards and was sacked five times (fumbling once), a Denver Post columnists quoted Bowlen as saying he wanted to win Championships, not Division Titles.  Fair or not, Bowlen was ready to move on from Tebow.

Twelve weeks before Denver’s loss in Foxborough, Tebow had suffered a similar 45-10 loss at the hands of the Lions of Detroit.  Going 18-of-39 for 172 yards, Tebow’s one touchdown pass was matched by an interception returned for a touchdown and doubled by a fumble that was also returned for a score.

Since becoming the starter a week before the loss to the Lions, Tebow had now been sacked thirteen times and fumbled four times in a mere two games.  Bouncing back, Tebow would go on to have a hot streak — which has been well documented – that ultimately earned Denver a playoff birth.

In reality however, Denver backed into the playoffs with an 8-8 record after losing all of their final three contests of the 2011 season.  In those three games, Tebow threw one touchdown and four interceptions, rushed for three touchdowns and was sacked ten times.

A week later, Tebow defeated a Pittsburgh Steelers team in a game that will be forever remembered in Broncos’ history.  It was all for naught however as Denver would prove the following week that they were not prepared to face the true powers of the AFC en route to the Super Bowl.

Since then, Bowlen has instructed his front office to bring a quarterback that is capable of matching up with, and defeating, the big boys of the AFC.  Elway and Co. brought in Manning for that purpose, and in the process traded away a quarterback in whom the team’s owner was no longer confident his leadership could win a Super Bowl.

The fans response has been to ridicule and harass Broncos’ Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway on social media sites and talk radio shows.  The reason being, Elway supported Bowlen’s opinions of Tebow and has been the face of the franchise since he returned to the team as a front office executive last off-season.

So stop saying “Elway ran Tebow out of town.”  If you really want to, say “Bowlen instructed Elway to run Tebow out of town and he followed instructions.”  More accurately, Bowlen instructed EFX — Elway, Head Coach John Fox and General Manager Brian Xanders –  to bring in a Super Bowl-caliber quarterback.

Secondly, I want to discuss the belief that “Denver stabbed Tebow in the back.”  This is the NFL; players are traded every day.  And by-the-way, the Indianapolis Colts did the exact same thing to Peyt0n Manning.

That’s right, the same man that some fans are hoping injures himself this season to “serve the Broncos right!”  That is so uncalled for and disgusting but a subject for another time.  In the words of Tebowmaniacs, “he was disrespected by the team that he had shed blood sweat and tears for on the football field and was stabbed in the back after doing everything in his power to help his team win.”

That’s right, the Colts cut Peyton Manning, who won four League MVP Awards while with the team, because it was the best move for their franchise.  How could they release a player that earned the fourth-most wins in the NFL history?  That’s uncalled for, and it’s not fair!

Do you hear the Tebow fans saying that?  Nope.

Stop with the “Denver stabbed Tebow in the back” nonsense.  They made a football decision, a very hard one , because they think it was the best move for the franchise.  They took a risk — gasp! — because that’s what it takes to get anywhere in this life, and in the NFL.

Just move on.  Tebow is gone!  Get over it.  If this comes back to bite the Broncos in the butt, we’ll talk about it then.  Let’s not worry that could happen and let’s certainly not “hope” that it does like many “Bronco fans” say they do.

If the Denver Broncos go on hot streak and make a Super Bowl run with Peyton Manning at the helm, every Bronco fan will be excited about it.  If you wouldn’t be excited to see Peyton Manning leading the Denver Broncos to victory, dare I ask, are you really even a fan?

To be clear, I’m not trying to deny or belittle the great things Tebow did while with the Denver Broncos.  I am however trying to suggest that we move on from the subject and wait and see how this season turns out before casting judgment on Denver’s front office, particularly John Elway, who has taken a lot of heat over the situation.

    Hhahahahah.  Best one yet.  Troll-a-riffic!!

    Comparing Elway to Mike Vick and Tiger Woods!  Priceless!

  • Anonymous

    I couldn’t agree more. I don’t know why people are throwing out terms such as “Tebow hater”. I am a Christian, and I hope to one day emulate Tebow in many ways.

    Perhaps Elway was a bit impatient, but I am going to forgive him for that. He saw an opportunity and took it. It might have actually been a better idea to draft a guy like Weeden and began the season with Tebow as the starter. If things didn’t work out, at least they would have a Plan B. Sure, Tebow had a winning record last season, but maybe, just maybe, we would have actually won MORE games with a higher-skilled quarterback. I believe that was Elway’s logic.

    I hate to say it, but I feel that some people are letting Tebow, the man, cloud their judgment about his abilities as an NFL quarterback. Again, I am not saying Tebow will not one day be a good NFL quarterback, I’m just saying that he didn’t show the signs of improvement last season that everyone had hoped.

  • Former Elway fan

     Of course he is not as bad as Vick and Tiger.  However, his ego is more inflated than the two put together! Those two guys were my wake up call but Elway (who was my hero) pushed it over the top.  Troll-Elway.  Sounds like a perfect fit! You are right….priceless!

    Don’t get it confused. I love love love Elway. He’s my absolute favorite player of all time, spanning all sports. I can’t imagine a day when someone else becomes my all time favorite player. However, that was Elway the PLAYER. I’ve been very vocal about Elway the EXECUTIVE. 

    I’ve received my fair share of venom from fans because of my outspoken posts saying that Elway is messing things up and lying to our faces. Elway the executive is as raw as Tebow the QB is. I’ve stated that if Elway was in his current position in 1983, that Elway the Exec would have traded/cut Elway the Player. My oh my, how the mighty have forgotten how bad he was.

    I’ve also received much criticism from others when I said that we shouldn’t go after Manning. I said that we need to give Tebow 1 full offseason, 1 full training camp, 1 full preseason, and 1 full regular season as being the unquestioned #1 QB. That way, he can get all those offseason reps with the starters, and then we can go through the regular season with no excuses, no caveats, and no blinders. If Tebow is the future, we’d be 8-8 or so. If he clearly isn’t the future, then we’d finish 0-16 to 4-12. Either way, I said we should give him that chance.

    Now, with us having Manning, I’m begging that we all give Manning that same exact chance. We know what he WAS, but we don’t know what he IS. He needs this offseason as the unquestioned #1. He’s earned it through his body of work. If he’s the Manning of old, we’ll go 8-8 to 12-4. If he isn’t, then we cut bait with him after this year, and draft a QB, because we’ll have a horrible record.

    From a fan’s standpoint, you shouldn’t love a team or hate a team because of 1 player. 1 player can be the catalyst to loving a team or hating a team, but the team is more than 1 person. Guess what? Rex Ryan is worse than John Elway when anything regarding ethics or behavior is involved. So you’re willing to take the more evil person over the less evil person, simply because Tebow is playing on that team? Again, a team is more than 1 player!

    Arrogance factor: 
    Rex Ryan = 10/10
    John Elway = 10/10

    Pompus factor: 
    Rex Ryan = 20/10
    John Elway = 5/10

    Honesty factor: (low is bad, high is good)
    Rex Ryan = 7/10
    John Elway = 9/10

    **HOLY SHIT, HOW CAN YOU PUT ELWAY AS 9 OUT OF 10 AFTER WHAT HE JUST DID TO TEBOW?!?!?!?!?!”**

    Simple. Elway has lied about Tebow in my opinion. He’s lied about everything related to Tebow since day 1. Again, that’s my opinion. However, he’s brutally honest in his evaluation when it comes to his actions. You know the saying, “actions speak louder than words.” Well, his actions are honest, his words regarding Tebow are not. That would land him a 5/10 in “honesty factor” in regards to Tebow. But again, the TEAM is more than 1 player. So while he can’t be a perfect 10/10 for honesty because of his handling of Tebow, he certainly can’t be pulled down too far because he’s only 1 person out of 53.

    If a team doesn’t win, they won’t be exciting to watch. If they aren’t exciting to watch, they won’t sell tickets or merchandise. If they don’t sell tickets, their games will be blacked out. If games are blacked out, then the team might leave town or shut down all together. If they are shut down, then Tebow isn’t here anyways. Man, get over it already. He isn’t here anymore. Did Elway string Tebow along? Yes. Is Rex Ryan any better? No. So what your argument all boils down to is you like Tebow more than any team. So, have fun rooting for the jets. Have fun watching Tebow hold a clipboard. I hope you lose your voice cheering for a player who won’t play but a few snaps per game. As for me? I’m gonna be cheering the Broncos, and cheering just as loud in victory led by Peyton Manning as I did in victory led by Tim Tebow. I tell you what though, the first time Manning throws a perfect 80 yard strike to Thomas or Decker en route to a blowout victory, I’m gonna be thinking in my mind “this is why we got Manning. Tebow couldn’t have done that.” Even though, yes, I know he throws a pretty long ball, but he’s shown that he isn’t consistent enough to close out games before the clock hits 0:00

  • Former Elway fan

     Well, maybe it should have been MILEHIGHMAGIC15. He did show signs of improving and it two years with all the work he puts in to it, he will be great! He just won’t be mile high great.  He will make Elway regret every insincere wink, roll of his eyes and the trade.

  • Charles01

    It will be because Elway tries to look like the big guy signing Manning even though it was a no brainer…
    ——-
    OK, how does Elway sign Manning and NOT look like the “big guy”?

    Couldn’t you just shut up after you read that.  That was a great post about what it is like being a true fan.  But no, you have to wave you hand of hate and try to belittle what was obviously a post of true emotion about a team that he truly loves. 

  • Charles01

    ….His best days are behind him.

    We don’t know this yet.  Like anyone else, you cannot foretell the future.  You speak it as if it is fact.

    Yes, one surgery was kept secret; what’s not secret is that Manning took lower pay while a Colt to ensure other players could get more $$.  We don’t KNOW what it was…maybe it was of little consequence.  We just don’t know.  And “we” means you too.

    The difference was that it wasn’t a lack of Elway’s talent that kept us “hanging around”, it was Dan Reeves tying 1 hand behind Elway’s back while handing off to Sammy “2 yards and a cloud of dust” Winder.

    In stark contrast, Fox molded the offense around Tebow. It was Tebow’s lack of ability that kept us “hanging around”, it wasn’t the coach stubbornly refusing to let the QB do what he did best.

    Now, Tebow is young, and I think we should have given him this entire offseason/regular season as the #1 to see if he can develop, because I know that it’s asking a lot for a young QB to perform, but unlike Elway, Tebow was held back because of his ability. Elway was held back because the coach wouldn’t let him do what he did best. Apples to Oranges my friend. Apples to Oranges.

    I’m sure your counsel carries much more weight than those who hail from the medical profession…right? 

  • charles01

    I think you need counseling….BAD.  For a “former” fan, you sure spend a LOT of time talking about (complaining) Elway and the Broncos.  I’m serious dude, if you haven’t gotten it all out by now, you need some help.  Do you realize how many times you have posted the same angry, venomous, diatribe BS?  You are more than just a “former” fan…you are troubled.

  • drewquail

    Peyton Manning is an “old” (by NFL standards) warhorse still recovering from a BROKEN NECK (take it from someone who’s had one after 30 yrs. of age: “recovery” takes more than a year and NEVER is “100%”, in terms of pain OR vulnerability), a non-mobile “pure drop back passer” about to be running for his life behind a porous O-line that did NOTHING to help the big, young HARD running stud they had back there LAST season…In fact, Tebow was also their best  RUNNING back: PM and the Broncos’ offense will have to bring in some NFL cast-off just to give themselves SOME kind of option there.  Step back from your “fan-fantasies”, and you’ll see how flimsy are the chances for this to work out well for your team…

  • Former Elway fan

     I absolutely agree Jon.  Manning definitely does have a better chance.  He is one of the best ever and Tim Tebow has no ill will towards Manning.  No doubt about it.  But……. it could be short lived.  If he gets hit hard just once and ends up out of the game, even Elway will be missing some Tim Tebow.  I hope Manning does NOT get hurt.  My heart has always been with the Broncos but Elway has lost my respect and the respect of many, many, many people.

  • Former Elway fan

    Go Broncos but even more so…..GO TEBOW! ADIOS ELWAY…. HOPE YOU LEAVE SOON…

    You have a point, cause Manning had the same procedure done as John Lynch…. John Lynch! Lynch hit people every chance he got, and with as much ferocity as anyone in the game at that time. 

    If Lynch can seek out people and dive at them, then I’m sure Manning can survive a few sacks. 

  • Anonymous

    In all fairness, Peyton Manning had the exact same neck problems and thus, procedure done as the great John Lynch. You remember Lynch right? The hard hitting safety who played with reckless abandon. Yeah, that same guy, with the same neck problem and procedure, played at a pro-bowl level for 4 years with us when he was in his mid 30′s. 

    I’m only saying this because if he can go out and hit people as hard and as often as he can, then I’m pretty sure that Manning’s neck can hold up to a few sacks. Remember, Orton laid down for the sacks if anyone got within 5 yards of him. Tebow held the ball for so long that sacks naturally happen. It wasn’t so much that our OL is bad, it’s that these guys held the ball too long, or went down at the first sign of pressure. Peyton Manning makes quick decisions, and even behind the horrible, horrible OL in Indy, still didn’t get sacked much because of his quick decisions and ability to read defenses in order to make the proper, and fast decisions.

    “…Beloved Executive Vice President of Football Operations…”
    This last line of the last comment here goes a long way towards demonstrating the nature of and hollow absurdity of the arguments mounted in your “fan piece”, Jon–almost satirically so!
    It could have been written by Mr. Elway’s MOTHER, for goodness sake…even the slash-”Quarterback” is tacked on like an afterthought, as if to say, “He’s an important MAN now”–but we already KNOW who is responsible for all of this, have a pretty good idea why (the blindly worshipful denials of the really FANatical Bronco supporters–who see “Bronco” and Elway” as one and the same–notwithstanding), and no matter what you’re saying here, the great majority of even those sneering at them now will soon join the “early-warning crowd” who see their team careening towards disaster, if/when the “Manning Experiment” (and that’s what it is, with so many question marks surrounding it, and “no Plan B”–your “hero’s” own words–to go to in the event) comes apart.  In the event of ANYTHING besides total success, it will be only a question of where your particular “breaking point” will be before you too begin to mutter, then yell your frustration, disappointment and anger, succumbing finally to the mounting evidence along the way…Only his family, and that small percentage of worshipers who will hang on through everything, the ones who call themselves “true fans” here, will continue to see “sunny skies” and make excuses every slippery sliding step down the road to failure.
    TRULY, these are “FANATICS, the root of the word “fan”, the kinds of people who attach themselves to a “leader” they don’t even know except as an “image” packaged and presented to them over time, and will after awhile follow them ANYWHERE–they are a danger to a democratic society, btw, but not as dangerous as the “leader” who believes not only his own “story”, but believes these “followers” are “the great majority”. Yes, we see them in LEGION amongst the Tebow phenomenon–but TT neither encourages this nor has tried to exploit it in any way save how it can allow him access to the “good works” that seem to be his main “interest” outside of football–which, it can be denied not even by “haters” is what he has and continues to work at the hardest by far.  Part of what makes him so popular and interesting is his refusal to take anything about himself and the media circus swirling around him BUT his those tow areas of determined concern.  Otherwise, he is humble, good-natured, open and accessible.
    What we have in John Elway, on the other hand, is a vain and jealous megalomaniac, convinced of his own greatness and infallibility, and therefore a danger to the very people and organization that has invested him with power in the first place.  As often happens, his downfall likely will be dramatic and thorough, what is sometimes described as “Shakespearian” in its spectacularly public display of weakness and failure..

    Maybe for eight games or so.  Again, cross your fingers and hope that Manning can take the abuse on the field.  I can like Tebow and Manning.  And I did (do).  I bet lots of people will be holding their breathes every single time there is a blitz on Manning.  I don’t want him hurt.  But, a man with four neck surgeries in one year, is much weaker for it. Not to mention his age.  He is a good guy.  Elway?  That is a no brainer. Not.

    Re “However, my love for Tebow hasn’t blinded me from the truth: Peyton Manning gives the Denver Broncos a better chance to win a Super Bowl than Tim Tebow does (did)”.
    Maybe not but, you better hope Manning doesn’t get knocked out after 6 games.  Seems to me it is a little blind to put all that faith in to a player that has had four neck surgeries in a year and is near the very end of his career.  Especially at 18M for one year.  He gets hurt and is out, then where do all those “chances” for a Super Bowl go then?

    Re:

    Maybe not…but, what about putting blind faith in to a player that while great, has had 4 surgeries in a year and is older than the hills (at least in this sport).  Let’s say he gets knocked out after 6 games, then where are the Super Bowl “chances” and where is all that blind faith going to get you?

  • MightyMike

    I’ll just say that “Time will tell.”  No one knows for sure what Tebow’s upside potential is, though I personally think it is significant.  We also do not know what Manning has left in him at age 36, after missing a season and having multiple neck surgeries.

    One thing for sure is that both the Broncos and the Jets will be teams to watch this coming season.  Plenty of drama for sure.  In fact, it may well be the best reality show on TV this Fall.

  • dislikeElway

    I don’t think Elway would like you saying “They had a chance to get possibly the greatest quarterback to ever play the game.” 

  • MightyMike

    Jon,
    You do make a good case, based solely on statistics, that Peyton gives the Broncos the best chance to win next year. There’s definitely a place for that kind of analysis, and it deserves consideration.

    I will stick to my guns, however, by stating that there is so much more to certain gifted players than statistics.  What Tebow brought to the Broncos was energy, confidence, and “miraculous” 4th quarter/OT capabilities that do not always show up in the stats.

    The guy is a viral time-bomb of “I Can Do, and So Can You!” 

    However, don’t you think that perhaps the Broncos have sacrificed a potentially long-term success story in Tebow, for a short-lived thrill in Manning?

    It almost seems like a case of adolescent-like, immediate gratification on the part of the Broncos front office, over the more mature, long-enduring approach to building a championship team  by developing the raw talent of an athletic, highly-motivated, young QB of excellent character.

    Other thoughts:

    It could also be that Pat Bowlen IS behind it all and that he wants to squeeze whatever he can out of the Broncos NOW before his alleged dementia makes it impossible for him to enjoy being an NFL team owner anymore.

    And for those who subscribe to the theory that John Elway did not want his status as Supreme Bronco God to be washed away by the tidal wave of Tebomania, there could be some truth to that.

    After all, Peyton Manning, as great a QB as he is considered to be, most likely will not have time left on his career clock to be able to challenge Elway for that sacred role. And the Legend of Elway remains safe.

    I can’t imagine what Peyton Manning will look like in a Bronco uniform, but I will always think of him as a Colt.  A horse of a different color.

    Meanwhile, the Legend of Tebow will hopefully continue to grow. It just won’t be in Denver.

    good article but my problem with the manning thing is that we might get 2-3 good years from him and then its back to ‘rebuilding’ again. i think they should have kept tebow but used him as a RB or FB. they could then throw in a few ‘trick’ plays once in awhile using him as a QB. i think he will go on to do great things though.

    You better hope after six games Tebow doesn’t crack his ribs again like he did in his first and last game as a Bronco.
