Denver Bronco's FB Spencer Larsen is nursing a tweaked ankle from the Indianapolis Colts game last week, so maybe Josh McDaniels and the Broncos should consider a bold move with Tim Tebow.

And just so I don't mislead you any further regarding that headline, I just made that up.

But there is a crazy article on BleacherReport now that says an "NFL Rumor" has Kyle Orton being traded to the Buffalo Bills for Marshawn Lynch. No, this wasn't written as a Satire piece (although it should have been). I could find no reference to that rumor on any sports news source other than when it referred to the hit here at B/R. This looks more like something from the Enquirer than from any legitimate sports blog.

And then again, maybe my "news flash" makes more sense than the trade rumor. Let's look at some interesting points to back this up:

Larsen did not practice today due to an ankle injury.

Tebow and Larsen are almost identical twins, size-wise. Larsen is 6-2, 243 pounds and Tebow is 6-3, 245 pounds.

They are both athletic and are not afraid of contact, especially after watching Tim's "Elway mini-me"  helicopter in the Bengals preseason game.

They both can catch the ball. (Look at all the times Tim has to catch the ball to enable for him to pass it).

They both know the offense and a QB has to know the plays for every position on the offense.

This would also give Josh and his brother the opportunity to use Tebow in the Wild Horse without having to slip him in and out of the game. It would throw off how the Titans would game plan for us.

Wait, Wait! This might just work!

And the best reason would be to get Gator U fans whose Timmie glasses are on WAY to tight to shut up and let the professionals handle the situation. Like me, for instance.


Just one Bronco fan(atic)'s opinion.
