08:00 AM ET 03.22 | John Elway, Brian Xanders and John Fox are raising some eyebrows by taking such long looks at Auburn's Cam Newton and Missouri's Blaine Gabbert. "We're always looking for that guy," Elway said from the Roosevelt Hotel coffee shop when specifically asked about the so-called quarterback of the future. "We may already have the guy who can pull the trigger and win us a championship someday. We may have him. We don't know. We believe in Tim [Tebow], but he's not there yet." ... Elway, Xanders and Fox personally attended the pro day workouts of Newton and Gabbert in recent weeks. Offensive coordinator Mike McCoy went to Ryan Mallett's pro day workout at Arkansas. Quarterbacks coach Adam Gase has, or will, work out Washington's Jake Locker, Florida State's Christian Ponder and Nevada's Colin Kaepernick.

You don't know so you give up on him already? That's a great attitude!

They should focus on defense, that's their biggest weakness.

If they're giving up on him, he's giving them the wrong finger.

The word of the day is "conflicted". Maybe Elway is conflicted about Tebow's future or maybe he just thinks he sucks and will always hold a clipboard.

I hear you there, they should have a pic of him holding a clipboard, since that's all they think he's good for.

They won't know if Buddy Christ is the next Brady Quinn or Tom Brady if he doesn't get more reps.

It sure looked like it.

Tim will be ready to compete for the starting QB job in Mile High. His character is impeccable unlike sCam Newton.

Indeed.

I think it's a smokescreen. They may even be looking to trade down with somebody that really wants Newton or Gabbert.
