With training camp beginning, two of the top rookie quarterbacks just can't get away from each other.
Colt McCoy was married just a few days ago. Tim Tebow wasn't in attendance, but Jordan Shipley gave the quarterback a shoutout while serenading the McCoy during a toast. The line talked about McCoy "rubbing elbows with Tim Tebow," which got the wedding crowd roaring.
The two quarterbacks jostled for the position of top college quarterback throughout their years at Florida and Texas.
Now, both have the chance to have impacts during their first seasons in the league.
McCoy comes into a ghastly quarterback situation in Cleveland, where he looks up at Seneca Wallace and Jake Delhomme.
Tebow, on the other hand, is primed to secure the second-string QB spot in Denver and will be featured heavily in the team's "Wild Horse" package. The package is built on Tebow's versatility from the position.
So, with the season beginning shortly, who will see the field more in 2010?
McCoy may have found himself slipping in the draft, but he arrives in Cleveland with a shot of playing right away.
Questions about the quarterback's fragility caused him to slip all the way to the 85th pick in the draft. Teams were just too scared of how long he'd last in the NFL. It also wasn't too clear how smoothly McCoy would transfer into a pro-style offense in the NFL.
After getting nowhere with Derek Anderson and Brady Quinn, the Browns knew they needed a new direction at quarterback.
By signing Jake Delhomme and Seneca Wallace, the organization has turned the page after seeing no progress in their previous two quarterbacks.
McCoy will enter camp as the third-string quarterback but will see his stock rise quickly.
As the year progresses, don't be surprised if McCoy busts into the lineup. The Browns are in the midst of rebuilding, and two shaky quarterbacks stand in front of him.
The Browns quarterback situation looks far from stable for 2010.
After driving in neutral with Quinn and Anderson, Cleveland is trying a complete makeover at the position for this season.
Delhomme and Wallace were added, but both offer a myriad of problems.
Delhomme looked awful last season and helped the opposing team more than his own. The Carolina QB finished the season on the bench after throwing 18 interceptions. He finished with a 59.4 quarterback rating, second-worst among starters.
At 35 Delhomme is over the hill and on his way towards retirement. He's a short-term answer at quarterback, and his days as starter could be limited.
Wallace has never been a legitimate starter in the NFL and only garnered 10 starts in his time with the Seahawks. Seen as more of an athletic, slash-type player early in his career, he established himself as a quality backup late in his Seattle career.
It's questionable whether he can succeed in Cleveland's new West Coast offense, and it is unknown how he'll fare as a full-time starter.
With the bleakness at the position, McCoy could bolster his stock with an impressive camp. He'll need to adapt quickly, but with two lackluster quarterbacks ahead of him, it is possible.
The Browns finished strong in 2009, but it doesn't discount the fact that they were one of the worst teams in the league.
The team is in disarray, lacking many of the pieces needed to succeed. It is also mired in one of the best divisions in the league, the AFC North.
On top of that, the Browns didn't do too much in the offseason to address their problems, instead adding two mediocre quarterbacks to compete for a job.
If things go like they did in 2009, the Browns will transfer into rebuilding mode by midseason.
What better way to start rebuilding than by getting your rookie quarterback's feet wet?
Although there are some downfalls to starting a rookie quarterback, McCoy has shown the maturity and experience to handle the situation well.
With the team probably heading for another bad season, it's not crazy to think McCoy could be starting by Week 12.
The Broncos surprised everyone when they took Tebow in the first round, but they already have plans for the former Gator.
After having one of the most distinguished college careers ever, Tebow is primed to make an impact in his first season in the NFL.
The quarterback situation in Denver isn't nearly as shaky as the situation in Cleveland, even though Kyle Orton does leave something to be desired.
In Tebow the Broncos get a determined, versatile quarterback who could make plays sparingly throughout the year. He won't get a crack at the starting job until he refines his mechanics, but that doesn't mean the Broncos won't use him in other ways this season.
In the past few days there's been much speculation about a possible Bronco plan to use Tebow in a wildcat-like formation called the "Wild Horse."
In the formation Tebow would line up under center as a standard wildcat quarterback. There, he'd be given the chance to bowl ahead on some power runs or catch the defense off-guard with his passes.
Although Tebow isn't particularly quick, his size will be effective in the running game.
With that said, Tebow offers a unique package as the wildcat quarterback. He can pass better than almost all running backs in the league. He can also run better than most of the quarterbacks too.
Josh McDaniels and the Broncos' organization have been in love with Tebow since the draft. They will be sure to find ways for him to play in 2010.
Tebow's work ethic and determination are two of the over-discussed things that the media raved about during his college career.
But there's good reason for all the talk. No matter what challenge he faces, Tebow will go at it with reckless abandon.
In college he did everything coach Urban Meyer wanted him to do. Now, he'll do the same for McDaniels.
With training camp starting up Tebow will take advantage of every rep he gets and will soak up all the mental knowledge that comes with being a pro.
While he doesn't have the mechanics to be a starter this year, Tebow will catch McDaniels' eye during training camp. The coach will have no choice but to give him quality snaps throughout the year.
When it comes down to it, both have shots at getting significant playing time this season.
McCoy finds himself on a terrible team with an even worse situation at quarterback. If things are going horribly by the end of the year, Eric Mangini could try out his rookie quarterback.
Tebow can be featured in a wildcat-type offense, where he'd thrive as a passer and runner. He also won't take no for an answer and will do anything possible to contribute for Denver.
In the end Tebow is the one who will have a bigger impact. He'll be given ample opportunities in the Wild Horse offense. Denver already has expressed its love for Tebow, and he will show the Broncos why in 2010.
Expect the Browns to go more slowly with McCoy. Feeding a rookie quarterback to the wolves is never a great idea. Although there's a chance he could play in 2010, McCoy would be best suited developing on the bench.
McCoy has the chance to have a better career than Tebow does, but expect Tim to see the field more this season.
