John Elway Says Denver Broncos Tim Tebow Is Not A Good Quarterback
It seems that Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow can’t get his opportunity to succeed or fail in the NFL and continues to battle the stigmatization that he is not a worthy NFL quarterback. The latest Tebow is not an NFL quarterback comes from Broncos legend and newly appointed V.P. of football operations in Denver John Elway.
“I don’t think Tim Tebow is a good NFL quarterback at this time,” Elway told Peter King of NBC and Sports Illustrated.
Tebow supplanted Kyle Orton as the starter for the final three games of Denver’s season and went 1-2 during but led a tremendous second-half comeback to down the Houston Texans for his only win.
Elway took to Twitter to backtrack from his comments, which indicated a harsher assessment of Tebow than Elway gave last Wednesday when he was introduced as the Broncos leading football operations executive.
“To clarify my thoughts on Tim Tebow … I think he’s a very good football player, and if anyone can turn themselves into a great QB, Tim can.”
“Myself and our entire organization think very highly of him. We are pleased with his first year as a Bronco. Any speculation that the Denver Broncos are considering moving Tim is completely false.”
