Even if Kyle Orton is healthy, Tebow SHOULD start the final two games.

This team is terrible, and Denver hasn't sold out every game, having Tebow start will guarantee a sell out.

Not only that, Denver drafted him in the first round, meaning they expect him to the the future QB.

Since Denver is eliminated from the playoffs, they need to see what he can do.

He did look good against the Raiders, and I do think he will be a successful NFL QB, but I want to see how he does when they open up the play book for him and when he plays a better defense.

Plus I firmly believe that he gives Denver a better chance to win than Kyle Orton.

Moreno is hurt, and the other runningbacks help out very little, having Tebow in the game helps the run game, and he is much more effective in the red zone than Orton is.

Plus this team really rallies around Tebow, they like his emotion, and I saw energy against the Raiders that I haven't seen since early in the season.

The fans want Tebow, the players want Tebow.

Let's see what the future QB has the rest of the season.


Ok Captain Obvious!

So were you watching ESPN and the bottom line scrolled across with this: "Tim Tebow will start for Broncos again on Sunday," and you figured you would catch you an easy win?

Maybe that's not the case, but Tebow had a passer rating over 100, threw for a TD with 0 int's, ran for a TD and averaged 9.8 yards per carry.

With a game like that, why wouldn't Tebow be the Bronco's starting quarterback for the next two weeks?

Tebow also joined a pretty rare club on Sunday. Before the first quarter was over he stood alongside Michael Vick and Kordell Stewart as the only three quarterbacks to run for a 40 yard TD and throw for a 30 yard TD in the same game in NFL history.

Your thoughts, Michael?

"He's a tough runner. He runs like a back," Raiders safety Michael Huff said. "Once he gets more experience throwing the ball, he'll be a good quarterback."

How about you, Tommy?

"He earned a lot of respect from me today", defensive tackle Tommy Kelly said. "He's a lot better athlete than you think he is. You heard so much about him and then you play him. He made a couple moves out there today that surprised me. I think he's got a bright future."


Thought I posted this last night, but W/e

How exactly is this an easy win?

I'm not asking is he starting, because that is a fact, I'm saying that it is the right decision for him to be starting, or SHOULD be starting, and SHOULD can be debated.

You could have said he needs to sit the rest of this season out to work on his throwing mechanics and try him out next season.

You could have said he is Denver's first round draft choice, and there is no need for him to risk injury playing in two meaningless games.

Hell, you could have argued that Orton gives Denver a better chance to win(and I wholeheartedly disagree).

If you didn't think this was debatable, you shouldn't have picked it up.

I would rather time run out than for somebody to take it and cry about the topic when they didn't have to take the TD.

This topic is debatable.


"This topic is debatable."

I guess, but only if you are a complete blubbering idiot who wants a 25-1 fannation Smackdown. For any person with half a brain, no it isn't. The Denver Bronco's season was over, they fired their coach Josh McDouche, and they will end up with the 1st through 4th pick in April's draft.

The Bronco's had every reason in the world to play Tebow the rest of the year and absolutely no reason to play lame-duck Kyle Orton.

"there is no need for him to risk injury playing in two meaningless games."

The Bronco's needed to decide now if Tebow was their QB of the future or just another one of Josh McDaniels terrible first day draft picks over the last couple of years. Whether they have the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th pick, the Bronco's needed to decide if they were using that pick on Andrew Luck or Ryan Mallet to be their QB of the future, Tebow suffering a career threatening injury would just help them in this decision making process. If Tebow plays absolutely atrocious or shows signs that he will be a good NFL signal caller, the Bronco's had to know, and they had to see him in live game action.

There was no losing situation going w/Tebow.


You should have let somebody else argue it.

There were several angles you could have used, but instead you decide to cry about an easy win that isn't there.

I've got fishing to do and I'm running late, so take care.


Yoda voted for me! I've figured out he is like the Pope or Dali Lama of fannation.


That means I WIN! I don't care about the Vote totals.


I also gave better reasons why Tebow should start than you did.


While I didn't debate your statement, I did submit better arguments.


Cake!





Boobies!

I'm not nearly as high on Tebow as you are, but I agree. May as well see what he can do at this point.

December 20, 2010  06:56 PM ET

Start Brady Quinn.

December 20, 2010  07:00 PM ET

Damn, I agree to much with this.

December 20, 2010  07:00 PM ET

Just give him some more pass attempts, and he should be in good condition.

December 20, 2010  07:08 PM ET

Of course they should, they already made the switch.

I don't think Tebow will be that good in his career, but they at-least have to see what they have.

Get Tom Brandstater back!

December 20, 2010  10:30 PM ET

Bubby Brister should be the starter.

December 20, 2010  10:39 PM ET

Tebow is going to be starting this sunday. Unless he gets injured, he'll finish out the season as the Denver starting QB.

December 20, 2010  11:17 PM ET

Tebow has to have the worst throwing mechanics of any QB in NFL. I never saw this guy play in college and I can see why everyone expected him to be a 3rd rounder

December 20, 2010  11:24 PM ET

Trade him to the Rockies.

Tebow is definitely a runner first and a QB second. I don't know how you could have missed seeing his college career. Do you live in Illinois?

You know who else had bad mechanics?

Philip Rivers.

So did Pontiac. Now they're out of business.

With 2 games left (and no playoffs) is there an argument to be made for Orton?

No thanks. We will pass....
