Tim Tebow was one of college football's greatest quarterbacks, playing for the Florida Gators. There is no doubt he has the ability to play football. Tebow has been blessed by God with his talents to play the game. He also has intangibles like leadership, faith and strength, to rise against his skeptics, and prove to them that he can play quarterback in the National Football League.
Tebow was drafted 25th overall by the Denver Broncos and then-coach Josh McDaniels, in hopes that he might lead the Broncos back to the promised land. McDaniels was fired midseason and Eric Studesville took over the job, giving the last three starts to Tebow last season. He performed well, going 1-2 while throwing for 651 yards and four touchdowns, running for three touchdowns and had about a 50 percent completion percentage.
Now, Tebow has hit a hurdle. McDaniels is gone. John Elway and John Fox are in as the general manager and head coach, respectively.
Tebow didn't have an offseason to work out with the team due to the NFL lockout. When it ended and training camp started, Denver had a quarterback controversy brewing between Tebow and Kyle Orton. One would like to think that it is Tebow's job to lose, as he was the starter at season's end, but the Broncos had other plans.
Orton was named the starter before the first preseason game, and Tebow now has to battle Brady Quinn for the backup job.
Here are five likely scenarios for Tim Tebow's future.
