High Time For The Denver Broncos To Embrace The Future With Tim Tebow

You can't keep doing the same thing over and over again and expect different results, by definition that is crazy.

Last season the Broncos had wide receiver Brandon Marshall and still wound up winning only two out of their last 10 games. 

Marshall is gone.

You are starting two rookies on the offensive line, Broncos No. 1 selection wide receiver Demaryius Thomas along with two of your starting RB's have yet to make an appearance this preseason.

Kyle Orton has proven that he has not improved in the last preseason game, which happened to be the closest thing to a real game as you can get this time of year.

This team is built for the future.

My point is that you may as well get the foundation of your future out and allow continuity to emerge rather than be stifled as a result of placing a generic added ingredient in place of the natural ingredient.

Tebow is the meat of this main course, and there is no reason to go with  tofu at this point.

I am not convinced that Orton can go out there and do a better job than Tebow can from what we have seen from the two preseason games thus far.

No way in hell.

Tebow's presence alone raises the level of play in both the passing as well as the running game. That is a fact.

Given more time with the starters, all Tebow will do is separate himself even further.

There is no need to deny Tebow that, given the fact that this offense will only be going backwards with Orton, there is absolutely nothing to prove otherwise given the fact of not only what we saw this weekend but from what we saw last season.

Orton has hit the ceiling with his upside, and Tebow is out performing him while still being in his infancy, while still being in the womb of his rookie preseason.

The difference between Orton and Tebow is night and day, it is always darkest before the dawn. Broncos need to step into the light of day by embracing the future and letting go of the past.

The Broncos time is now; delaying the inevitable only means dishing out the slop that has held this team back thus far.

Tebow ought to be given every opportunity to advance and excel in McDaniels' scheme. He cannot do that on the bench or holding a clip board.

This is Tebow's opportunity to shine, he cannot be denied. The future is in your hands, you can either embrace it or bench it.
