We mentioned a couple weeks ago that despite all the Tebowmania going on in Denver right now, there was a very important person who isn’t/wasn’t sold on Tim Tebow. And it’s Tebow’s boss, John Elway.
But maybe now, after they climbed to a 7-5 record to sit atop the AFC West, he’s changing his tune.
“We saw him read out the two passes, the long passes — the touchdown to Demaryius [Thomas] in the end zone, and the long gain in the fourth quarter. He did a great job against Cover 2,” Elway said on 102.3 FM. “Offensively, especially in the second half, we came out and did some play action, which really helped us, and receivers did a heck of a job getting open, and Tim did a good job of getting them the ball.”
So…is he your QB of the future?
“I know that everyone wants to know, but our future is right now. When you look at where we are, the future is the Chicago Bears,” Elway said. “We’ve got three out of four at home, and we’re coming off five out of six wins, so we’re excited to come home.
“I think the city, the fans are excited about where we are right now and the future is now, and the key thing is for us to keep focused on each game coming up, and try to win this division, try to get in the playoffs and see what happens.”
He’s taking the right approach. While Tebow keeps on winning somehow, his lame duck passes are still troublesome. We’ll see what happens at the end of the year.
