Seems like Fox and Elway don't want Tebow to succeed because he was Josh McDaniel's 1st round pick.

They should trade him to a competitive team, in my opinion.

I agree, playing for a lousy team like Denver has to suck.

Yeah, a team that actually gives him a chance to succeed. He isn't getting any help or support in Denver.

I think he's a goner in the offseason. The Broncos will deal him for a 4th/5th round pick (I think). The Broncos won't want Tebow anymore, and front offices won't want to give up TOO much for him when they know they can get him for much less.

And I think that the team that it would make the most sense for them to grab him. And keep Tebowmania alive is...... The Colts. Think about that for a second. If they win the Andrew Luck sweepstakes, I don't see them taking him 1st overall. They have much bigger needs than quarterback with Manning on the roster. The asking price for that top overall pick would be a very sexy bounty of high draft picks. Plus, who better for Tebow to learn behind than Peyton Manning, widely considered to be the best of all time?

I don't know if the Colts will go that way, but if I ran the team, it wouldn't hurt to try,

Expanding on this point. What team has a better environment than the Colts to contain Tebowmania (except for perhaps the Patriots, but I don't see Bill making this deal with Ryan Mallet already in the works)? Their incumbent is Peyton Manning and Tebow is a work in progress; the fan base would be more than willing to be patient with this experiment.

Tebow's wild success in college, both on and off the field, is what makes him such an attractive prospect. If the experiment doesn't work out, hey, they only gave up a low-round pick for it, and it boosted jersey sales. If Manning can mentor Tebow and help him develop into a big-time quarterback... watch out.

And I think Peyton would be willing to mentor Tebow. Manning didn't really allow Painter the practice time/etc to develop, and Peyton can only watch from the coaching booth in agony this year. I think that Manning will remember that and, along with the now-inevitable truth that his career is nearing its end, I think that he would be a help to Tebow.

I really don't know if this would happen or not, though. It would definitely be the best situation for all sides of this deal, though. I'd pull the trigger if I ran the Colts.

Tebow could learn the game playing behind Manning in much the same way that Aaron Rodgers benefitted from playing behind Favre.

The book is out on Tebow: great kid, runs hard, throws ducks. The reality is given any amount of time, he's not an NFL QB and I don't see anyone wasting a pick to get him on their roster. With that pitcher's windup he has the only thing missing is high leg kick - not even the great QB guru Paul Hackett can help solve that mess.

As for Manning helping out look to Painter, it's his 3rd year with Indy and I've not seen evidence of any Manning mentoring in his play nor Manning counseling on the sidelines during the games. Just saying.

We Denver fans unanimously support Tim and are confident he will improve and lead this team to some wins. Management needs to acquire better skill players to give Tim effective offensive weapons.

You are judging Tim on only two games as a starter? Tim has all the tools to be a very good NFL QB despite all the negative comments from Tebow haters like you.

Not a hater, just stating the obvious and I did say he's a great kid. Apparently you missed that reading it through your Tebow rosy glasses. He's played in more than two games and in this league that's more than enough film for any decent DC. Keep Tebow from running, make him throw the ball and he'll throw you enough picks to pad your stats.

It would have benefited Tebow if he could have sat and learned behind a good veteran QB. Unfortunately Kyle Orton was not a very good person to learn from. I think if given enough time Tebow will develop into a good QB provided the Denver coaching staff has enough patience with him.

I think we have beaten a dead horse concerning the play of Tim Tebow.

Come on man everyone around must beat that dead horse to death.

On a lighter note maybe he could open some sort of religious retreat for failed NFL players? He would be king in that scenario.

November 1, 2011  02:48 PM ET

He could open that retreat just for failed QB's, make failed Raider QB's the Deacons. JaMarcus, Marc Wilson, Todd Marijuana-vich, Jay Schraeder oh man could I go on and on.

So true

Tebow is throwing to a pretty danged weak WR corps. I mean, last Sunday, weren't his first two completions to Eric Decker? What is that guy even doing on the field? And he's listed #2 on the depth chart! I disagreed completely when Fox traded away Brandon Lloyd. I still do, very much so.

Eddie Royal isn't even a great #1 receiver. Tebow wasn't given 2nd string reps during practices this year (that went to Brady Quinn), then was put into the starting lineup with these people to throw to?

I mean, I know that his mechanics aren't the best and he still has a long way to go, but... C'mon, man!

November 1, 2011  04:39 PM ET

Some of the comments here are strange and delusional. Tebow lacks any type of skill that would make one think he will ever be and NFL QB. Great in college but like so many before him a bust in the NFL who never should have been taken before about the forth round.
