Bears fan living in Denver and I have never been more excited. The circus is gone and it is exciting to be in a football town again!

Make him a TE, good hands, elusive after the catch. Foolish to part ways with a gifted athlete, just put him in a position where he can be more successful.

When you live in Denver you get a different view than just the highlights. He took a 1-4 team and turned them into a team that ended the season 1-4 with one of the biggest loses in NFL history. Lucky NE turned it off in the second half. Manning shows up himself and goes to work, gone are the handlers making sure the camera angle is right and no good deed goes unnoticed.

I am from Denver and watched every minute of every game, grit yes! Helluva person you bet! outstanding role model absolutely, BUT!! Look at Denvers offensive stats for 3 and a half quarters, they could not possibly be worse, we were able to pull those games out because of Tebow partially, but mainly because of the defense, If we had any kind of respectable offense we would have never had to be coming from behind to win.. If your a true football fan, this is not footall, it's helter skelter at its worst, SO when the only man who can be halfway successful at running this offense is hurt then what do you have, its not real football sorry, its a circus!!

Tim is a great person and an admirable character, its just that some things cannot be taught even after years and years of practice. His mechanics of throwing, decision making and footwork are terrible. A first round QB earning a 1st round salary should not have to be taught how to throw, they should just have to improve on their throwing ability, footwork, reading the defense etc.

Its true that Elway, Peyton and many more high caliber QB's took a few years before they showed signs of hope but they had the intangibles in being great, its just that all of the other pieces were not in place for the team to achieve success.

My vote is for Tebow to stay in Denver, learn from Elway, watch Peyton's mechanics, reads, controlling the game, play calling and all the other things that make these QB's great. With enough time he might make people believe that he can be a hall of famer as well.

I'm a long time Florida Gator fan. Tebow was a hell of a college quarterback and had some exciting moments this year. But, realistically, if you give a pro defensive coordinator time to game plan for him, well, we know what can happen. I think he would be a great situational player (qb, fullback, TE, etc). And some of the brighter minds, like Belichick, would probably get some great use out of him. But, with Tim, you get that other ugly part of the deal, his zealot fans. I like the guy, but as a GM or Coach, there is no way I would take the headaches that through no fault of his, come with him.

I'm a Tebow fan. Think he'd be a huge asset to any team because his mental and physical potential are obvious. He will be an asset to any team because of his dedication. He's a leader, his faith has nothing to do with football. Coaches don't have to get caught up in any of that and they shouldn't.
