"Can I say something, honestly? I think this offense is stunting your growth," Sharpe said. "Don't you think at some point and time you're going to have to be able to develop and throw the football fundamentally?"

The Broncos face the Chargers Sunday in a very important AFC West matchup. Denver, at 5-5, is just one game back of Oakland in the division, and a game up on San Diego. One of the reasons the Broncos are back in the playoff-race conversation: Tim Tebow, who took over a 1-4 team from Kyle Orton and promptly went 4-1 as a starter. (Orton, meanwhile, is the newest member of the Kansas City Chiefs.) 

Ahead of Sunday's matchup, CBS Sports' Shannon Sharpe sat down with Tebow to talk about his style of quarterback play, his future with the Broncos, why he's such a polarizing figure.

One of the best exchanges from the interview:

Sharpe: Do you believe this organization is 100 percent behind you?
Tebow: I believed that I am very blessed to play for this organization.
Sharpe: That wasn't the question I asked you -- whether or not you were blessed. I asked do you believe John Fox and John Elway 100 percent believe Tim Tebow is the guy that's going to get them back to winning championships?

Tebow had almost 9300 yards passing at Florida and just under 3,000 rushing

88 passing TD's versus 57 rushing


Hardly numbers that indicate a "run first" QB

kotch: Tebow has the right to publicly state his religious beliefs. People who disagree with his beliefs, particularly those who have their own religious values, have an equal right to be offended. Being a lightning rod is an inevitable part one providing public witness of their beliefs. So get over it and value the right of others to disagree in a free society.

Injuries to Bailey, Dawkins, Dumervil, Thomas, DJ Williams.  They all missed alot of time and all are starters and major contributors.  New system takes a little while to get settled.

buckjonston: College QBs who are runners first and passers second have a poor record of succeeding as NFL QBs. Those who have succeeded typically took several years to develop-behind a competent starter. The experts rely on historical knowledge, you rely on your belief in Tebow. Devotion may lead Tebow to eventually reforming his throwing motion and control of his feet, but the QB passing skills have to emerge for him to succeed as an NFL QB. His future as an NFL QB relies on refining those fundamental passing skills-pronto in his current circumstances. Tebow has far to go in harnessing his passing skills. How long do you believe the Broncos can rely on a run-first starting QB awaiting passing skills that may never come?

In junior hs, Tebow wanted to be a QB - coaches told him he should be running back or linebacker - he persisted and led team to undefeated season.

In high school, coaches told him he wasn't a QB - should be RB or LB - ended up top rated QB out of high school for colleges to pick from.

Won 2 national championships with Florida - 1st spophomore to win Heisman - first QB to have 20 TD passes and 20 TD rushing - had over a 67% completion percentage in college - don't say college doesn't count, the same players in the NFL also played in college - now, all the "experts" and other idiots say  he isn't a QB - will win MVP and Super Bowls in near future - watch and see

So if the Broncos defense is so good and Tebow sucks so bad, why was Kyle Orton 1 and 4 with the same defense and Tebow 5 and 1?
