08:05 AM ET 08.05 | So much seems to have changed in such a short time. The unremitting, unrelenting smile was, like his life the past week, turned upside down. Tim Tebow's face strained from the rare, uncharacteristic frown. "My dream, since I was a young boy, of being a starting quarterback in the NFL seemed to be coming true," Tebow told me as we stood outside the Broncos' locker room. "Then, I felt like it was grabbed back away. . . ." He paused and didn't finish the thought. Instead, he finished his quart of milk. For the first time in more than a dozen conversations we have had, Tebow revealed edginess, frustration and even anger. Perhaps, now, nine days from his 24th birthday, Tebow is coming to grips with the reality of pro football and manhood.

The Broncos are a mess right now and will only win 4 games at most this season. Tebow will get his shot to start this season.

"Tebow coming to grips with manhood" Is that a euphemism?

A plea for Viagra.

He is still a moron and I would rather have Orton.

That would be a sin ................ Tebow would not commit one of those.

Although, if his career in the NFL doesn't work out maybe he'll start taking something more potent than milk. Maybe even Coke ......... a Cola.

or Cialis because the moment has to be right...hopefully, he won't go deaf or blind..

I highly doubt he is not handling his manhood a few times a week. I pity him, being celibate the way he claims to be, and if he doesn't pleasure himself, he must be one **** mother right now

If you spend 5 or 20 minutes with Tebow, your life will be better for it....

August 5, 2011  08:53 AM ET

Let it go Timmy. It isn't personal. The NFL is an equal opportunity lender. If you got it, you will get your chance.
Fox can only go by what he can see on the field. I guess he is seeing what the rest of the NFL saw before the draft.

August 5, 2011  08:54 AM ET

Oh boy, here we go. She's gonna start crying.

August 5, 2011  08:55 AM ET

I don't think the Broncos will be a very good team this season. So, I think Tebow will get some starts towards the end of the season (much like last year).

You have to EARN the starting job, your god doesn't just give it to you.
