It’s Tebow Time For Along Time: See Why Tebow Will Silence The Critics

Tim Tebow can be and will be a good quarterback in the NFL.

After replacing Kyle Orton in the third quarter against the San Diego Chargers in week five, Tim Tebow has been the starting quarterback in Denver and with that has come a lot of attention; both negative and positive.

Coming off the bye week the Broncos traveled to Miami to face the Dolphins where quarterback Tim Tebow would make his first start of the 2011-12 NFL season and boy oh boy, it wasn’t pretty.

For 56 minutes, Tebow time looked like the wrong time as the Broncos couldn’t get anything going and were on the verge of losing to the, at the time 0-5 Dolphins as they trailed 15-0. Though just when it looked about over Tebow did what Tebow did as he carried the Broncos down the field leading them to a score making the game 15-7, Dolphins lead.

Getting the onside kick, the Broncos would re-gain possession with 2:27 left in the game.

Tebow then would once again lead his team back down the field scoring on a three yard Daniel Fells touchdown. But it wasn’t tied up yet as the Broncos still needed a two point conversion. Trailing 15-13, with everyone watching Tebow on a quarterback draw would score the two point conversion.

Sending the game to Overtime, the Broncos would go onto kick a 52 yard field goal and would win 18-15 over the Miami Dolphins.

A win that would’ve been called ugly for any team or starting quarterback was called a thing of beauty for Tim Tebow as that was the only thing that everyone was talking about; the Tebow comeback, in three minutes time.

The celebration wouldn’t stop there as the social media trend of “planking” would climb to new heights as it evolved into “tebowing” which was performed by imitating Tebow’s touchdown/prayer celebration.

However it was just one game and the celebration for Tebow would end quickly as on Sunday against the Detriot Lions would result in a massacre. Losing 45-10, the Denver Broncos and Tebow were just embarrassed by the Lions. Fumbling the ball three times (losing it once) and throwing an interception, Tebow was the blame for the Broncos 45-10 loss.

Losing his first game of the season the question of “Should Tebow be the starting quarterback?” started to come up as well as many other things; “Should he be pulled?”…“He can’t be an NFL quarterback, ever.”…“It’s embarrassing.”

The critic’s spoke and the Broncos answered as head coach John Fox told reporters that Tim Tebow would remain their starting quarterback. His decision caused an uproar as several reporters began bashing him, including NFL Live where every single analyst said that Tebow was not worthy enough to be an NFL starter as well as many other things.

And the thing is; they’re all wrong. Tebow does deserve to be a starter of this Denver Broncos football team and that’s why he is. It’s only one game; Tebow only lost one game. Orton lost three until he was finally pulled, Tebow only lost one and to his defense he lost a game to a very good football team.

Standing at 6-2 the Detroit Lions, aren’t the old Detroit Lions as they’ve changed a lot. With one of the best defensive lines in football and one of the most feared wide receivers in Calvin Johnson, and a great quarterback in Matthew Stafford, this Detroit Lions team is really good.

Now so what if he lost the game 45-10 he can’t get all of the blame as their defense should get some of it too; giving up 31 points, that’s completely unacceptable. But I don’t hear anyone saying bench the defense, bench that player or bench that player, no. All I hear is bench Tebow.

With games coming up against the Oakland Raiders and the Kansas City Chiefs, the Broncos can turn around their season with two wins over both of those teams and their best chance of doing so is with Tebow. So to all of the critics and haters, take a knee, put your elbow on it, and bow your head because for now it’s Tebow time in Denver.

See Why Terrelle Pryor Might Not Be Suiting Up On Sundays

Yes the NFL granted him eligible but they didn't grant him a team.

Its official, the NFL has declared Terrelle Pryor, former quarterback of Ohio State eligible for this years NFL Supplemental Draft. However there’s still one problem. Once Pryor signs with an NFL team he will have to sit out five games before being eligible to play. This could hurt his draft stock as some teams such as the San Francisco 49ers want a quarterback that can play right away.

The NFL Supplemental Draft will take place on Monday, but it still doesn’t guarantee that Pryor will be drafted. The Supplemental Draft is very different from the NFL Draft as every team doesn’t have to pick. Since being started in 1977 only 40 players have been selected from the Supplemental Draft making that an average of about one to two players a year.

Here’s how it works, the Supplemental Draft is designed to allow underclassmen, or players who missed the filing deadline for the NFL Draft, or players who find themselves ineligible for the upcoming college season. The supplemental draft is held after the traditional NFL Draft and before each season begins.

In easier terms it’s like a waiver wire broken down into three tiers. The first tier is the teams with six wins or less in the previous NFL Season. The second tier is the teams with six wins or more in the previous NFL Season but a non-playoff team. The last and final tier is the 12 playoff teams.

Now no team is required to pick a player. However if they do want a player they submit what is called a bid to the NFL Commissioner with the round that they want to select the player in. If no other team places a bid on that player in an earlier spot then the team is awarded that player and has to give up a pick equivalent in the next years NFL Draft. For instance if a team selects a player in the 2nd round of the Supplemental Draft then they have to forfeit their 2nd round pick in the next NFL Draft.

Pryor is in a very tough spot as many teams don’t like to draft players in the Supplemental Draft though Pryor has an advantage over a lot of past and present players to go through this process because, one his talent that he has shown and two the publicity that has been around him. So, with still some teams out there that could use a quarterback Pryor could possibly land somewhere for this upcoming NFL Season.

Teams Where He Could Go:

Buffalo Bills: 4-12 last season, multiple quarterback changes, and still no key addition, are all signs that point to Terrelle Pryor being a good pick for the Bills in the Supplemental Draft. They need a quarterback and with a solid run game and an up and coming wide receiver in Steve Johnson a player like Pryor could turn this franchise around. So what are you waiting for Buffalo? Get Pryor and circle the wagons.

Miami Dolphins: Another disappointing season at 7-9 last year and no real signs of improvement as Ronnie Brown is gone and yes Reggie Bush is now there but he’s no Ronnie Brown. You still have Chad Henne as your starting quarterback after your fans booed him and chanted Kyle Orton. You passed on Orton and now you have a second chance at another talent in Pryor. So what’s it going to be Miami? Get Pryor or take a back seat to the Miami Hurricanes football program. I’m sure Dolphin fans won’t mind if you guys switch schedules.

Oakland Raiders: A better but still disappointing season for the Oakland Raiders yet again. Then during the off-season they lose Nnamdi Asomugha the heart and soul of their defense. Nice going Al Davis man do Raiders fans hate you. Their to the point where their not even cheering for a Super Bowl let a lone a win anymore, it’s gone so far that their cheering for you to step down and call it quits or for life to take its natural cycle. So Al is that how you want to be remembered? Pryor is available and unlike Jamarcus Russell, Pryor actually improves on his game he doesn’t sit there and watch it get worse.

San Francisco 49ers: 6-10 last season, not to bad but not well enough for a franchise that is used to being at the top and is now towards the bottom. You went out and got wide receiver Braylon Edwards, kudos. Now how about you get him a quarterback? Adding Terrelle Pryor to the mix with Edwards, Michael Crabtree, Vernon Davis, and Frank Gore running the ball…uh oh that could cause some problems. Can you say championship? (NFC West Championship…but it’s a start)
