What happened with St Tebow?

Tim Tebow is falling?

Is Pryor that much better? Really?

The consensus in the pros is that Tebow doesn't have the skills to be a pro QB. Personally, I wish he had gone pro a year before he actually did. The college game is distinctly different from the pro game. I give St. Tebow his due as a CFB QB, but ... it doesn't bother me at all to see him struggling in the pros. I give Pryor the same prospects ...

It is hard to get a grasp on exactly what is happening in Denver. As a three game starter Tebow had a passer rating of 82 and won two of the three games he started. Brady Quinn has had several times more starts over his career and has a mid 60's rating and an abysmal won/loss record. Possibly money may be an issue along with the organization's thoughts that Tebow doesn't project as a franchise starter but more as a back up.

From my experience at watching training camps it is unusual to see a quarterback fall so far from just how he performed in training camp. Going into Camp they were hailing Tebow as the starter and trying to move Orton but couldn't get the deal they wanted for Orton.

I agree with JP, mixed signals from the organization, with a healthy dose of media spin, makes it really look strange. Who the heck knows what is really going on.

If he doesn't make it, I hope the best for the young man, but pretty sure he'll go follow his father's footsteps and be perfectly happy doing so.

Do you think that he would consider a position change?

If it were me, I'd be hanging around wherever the coaches would let me to keep that paycheck coming, but he just might say thanks but no thanks, and grab a ticket to the Phillipines, and get settled into the life of a missionary.
