It can be said that Josh McD found a way to make Denver relevant again. The Broncos had been lucky to pull a night game this season, and the NFL looked as they would be treating the Denver based franchise like any other mundane organization. That was till a certain Tim came along. The NFL can not deny the interest in the 2007 Heisman winner/ greatest college player of all time.
When the 2010 draft started McD looked as if he was only saying the right things abut Tebow so he could take the attention off of another player they might have coveted. However when Tebow told a local reporter in his home town he knew who would draft him and when I began to feel as if the last minute visit in Denver may actually have been the reason Tim said that.
After Oakland took Rolando Mclain (wow by the way great move) Denver lost it's main focus with the initial pick. The only logical thing would be to move down and get one of the other players they had sitting on the board. I would have to believe McD wanted Mclain and Tebow. Because of Mclain being gone Denver knew they had a pick they would use before the pick they had been working all day negotiating from Baltimore which was originally for Tebow anyway.
Denver took waht many now see in Denver as the best receiver in the draft. McD got alot of poeple there. Using Dez as a smokescreen for Damaryius Thomas. (off of memory hope its spelled right) Thomas clearly will only help Denver and Tebow to progress naturally.
My general senses so far from the many, many Broncos fans Ive spoken to, and my personal Bronco "confi-don" Jesse Morarie this is a great pick. You wonder who the heck Jesse Morarie is right? If Im Mr.Orange. He is Mr.Blue. he studies the game like I do. Has one heck of an eye for talent. he can make you think outside the box. If you ever see him write something. Read it. Worth it.
Now think of it like this. Denver by replenishing its Defense with vets has been able to concentrate on its offense. Knowshon Moreno my favorite Bronco (once again) will have a better scheme to fit his style. That will allow him to have his breakout year even though last year was the best of any running back taken in his draft. You will see Thomas, Royal, Stokely, Gaffney, Lloyd,and now Decker as a very, very good receiving core.
Tim will be able to sit back and watch a newly minted offensive attack with alot of productive weopons now take shape. Knowshon and Buck will free up down field with the running game. The passing game ha enough threats to make sure the running game is not over used. Tim will be in a system like college. That may help him to transition to the next level better.
The one thing McD should not do is use Tebow in other positions. The kid is a quarterback. Use the time you have to train him in that and only that. We dont need to see Tebow the TE or Tebow the HB. Thats all stupid talk. Elway was never a TE. Cutler was never used as a HB. Both could run like Tebow. If you have a franchise QB you do not risk him by putting him in a non logical position. Tim is our future franchise QB. Treat him as such.
Well there is a lot of draft left, this article didn't nearly skimmed the top of what could of been said, however it is clear that Tim is coming to Town. Tim Tebow is a Denver Bronco. The fans actually love this pick. Well the ones Ive spoken to anyway.
McD may have gotten off on the wrong foot in Denver. If he can make this happen, he will have not only found stable footing on solid ground. He will be seen as the coach Bowlen says he is. Not just by the Owner. But by the fans as well.
Welcome to Denver Tim. It's great to have you.
