"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?

All you people need to get off Tebow's dick. If he didn't have one of the best defenses in football (and yeah, they are that good and criminally underrated) he would be 1-4. They keep the team in games for the 3 and half quarters Tebow is pathetic. That kind of luck won't last long.

"At any every level".

Sharpe needs only to look at the career stats of HOF QB Joe Namath. Barely 50pct passing, 170 td passes and 222 ints, and QB rating of 65.5. Are you kidding? At every level, Tebow wins.

I don't understand why people hate Tebow. They may hate how he plays but how can you hate him as a person? You have to have some serious issues to hate a guy like this.


I'm not cathloic. I don't like the Broncos. But how can you hate someone like him?

Dang.. those were harsh words from Shannon.  I hope he doesn't live to regret them.  I like SS but I REALLY like Tebow too.  I know that Tebow will become a great leader for the Broncos one day.  He may even help bring an SB.  But meantime, he is a leader that the players WANT to play for NOW.  He is a WINNER.  He may not throw a pretty ball but he gets the job done.  And he isn't afraid to tuck it and run; if a LB or CB gets in his way, he lowers his head and hits him.  He has an intangible quality of leadership which you cannot coach into a player.  Either they have it or they don't when they arrive to play. He has it in abundance. And what he has, is infectious and spreads to his teammates. He is a LEADER and a WINNER.  And i'm not even a Bronco fan!

Shannon Sharpe is such a douche; I couldn't take the same heat he dishes out.  For a guy that was barely audible a few years ago, CBS has stuck it out with him and his antics - wonder why he thinks Tebow should deserve the same opportunity?

"..he shamelessly plugged for his brother Sterling.."

Sterling Sharpe is not Shannon's brother but rather is his COUSIN.

What a great world this would be if there were a lot more Tim Tebows in it.  It gives the term "athlete" a good name.  Something it has been missing in professional sports for a long time.  So what if John Elway doesn't believe, everyone else believes in Tim Tebow the person, and that is what really matters!
