Unless Tim Tebow Starts, the Denver Broncos Will Be an Average Team

What we have seen thus far is an average team from the Broncos.

But this average team being in the storm of growing pains with a new head coach at the helm, has presented quiet a few flashes that followed with the thundering applause from this audience.

We have seen quiet a few sparks on the defensive side of the ball, especially in the Steelers game where they were actually allowed to blitz. The pressure they put on the QB resulted in two turnovers.

This brings me to my next point.

The rookies as well as the brand new defensive line needs time to marry into the scheme in order to develop the continuity a top tier team possess.  These new players have the advantage of a surrounding cast that has already had a year in Josh McDaniels dynamic scheme.

Now as we have all gathered this off season there is only one quarterback on this team who can execute the dynamics of this offense, without forcing the head coach to just toss half of his play book because his QB is incapable of executing it.

So therefore if this team is just middle of the road, does McDaniels actually have a choice than to go with a QB who can take it to being more than that. Sure with a rookie there is growing pains, but that beats mediocre pains of not having a chance to grow.

And as we have seen Tim Tebow is more than able to make up for his mistakes as he exposes the edges of the map in regards to where he and can't go in this league.

At this point with a team being rebuilt for the future you absolutely have to go with the QB of the future.
