Elway 'disappointed' in reaction to Tebow comment

Although it feels like a lifetime's worth of Tim Tebow news has happened since, it's actually only been a week since John Elway said the Broncos quarterback of the future currently wasn't on the roster.

Now, a week later and one Denver win richer, Elway is "disappointed" that people misunderstood what he was trying to say on his radio show last Monday. He clarified the remarks this week on the same radio show.

"I was surprised in the fact that people took it to be a negative answer, and it really wasn't a negative answer," Elway said Monday on KDSP-FM in Denver, via NFL.com. "That's where I was taken aback. It wasn't meant to be a strike at Timmy at all.

"It was just a reality check of where we were at the time, and it wasn't a negative because I tried to follow it up with all the positive things we were doing and tried to point out some things we needed to get better at."

Elway, at the time, emphasized that the team wasn't going to win a championship if its quarterback was completing less than 50 percent of his passes, or if they weren't converting third downs.



But because the question he was asked centered around whether or not the quarterback of the future was on the roster, many folks took it a way that Elway apparently didn't intend.

"I was disappointed, and obviously I need to do a better job communicating that message, because the way it was taken was taken more negative than obviously I really meant it to be," Elway said. "So that's just one of those situations, and it's something I'll learn from also."

Look, Elway's in a lose-lose situation when he tries to answer that question. If he says "yes," he's committing to Tebow for the long term even if he's not sure that's what he wants to do. And if he goes back on his decision, he's sure to hear from many angry Tebow supporters down the road.

On the other hand, if he doesn't commit to Tebow as the franchise's future, he's pretty clearly undermining any support for Tebow from the organization. Even if that's not what he's actually doing.

Elway 'disappointed' in reaction to Tebow comment

Staged, lit, and musically scored like a cross between The Voice and Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, the two hours started out genially enough, with Gingrich wishing the audience, “Merry Christmas to everybody” (subtext: “None of that liberal ‘Happy Holidays’ stuff for me!”). PerryMedee12yue
, genial as all get-out, went off on an early Tim Tebow riff as a metaphor for how he’d triumph, concluding, “I hope I am the Tim Tebow of the Iowa caucuses!” Paul drew laughs and applause by responding to a question as to which candidate is most likely to defeat President Obama, “Probably anybody up here can beat Obama!” Bachmann, perhaps courting a Wonder Woman image, declared, ”I am an action person… I spent 50 years as a real person, and now I’m ready to go toe to toe against Barack Obama.” Indeed, Obama quickly became a repeated target. , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , Gingrich applied his usual label for the President — “a Saul Alinsky radical” — to the usual silence. (Hey, Newt, folks don’t know who Alinsky is, but kudos to you for spurring the audience to find out who he was.) Romney said Obama has “a foreign policy based on [saying] pretty-please” and that ”his timidity and weakness invite aggression.”

Elway 'disappointed' in reaction to Tebow comment

Elway is a tool.. always has been.  Huge Ego, bigger then his considerable talent.   Yes he was a winner at Denver, but I will never forget how he treated Dan Reeves, a great coach.  He got him fired.  He went to the owner and said I don't like the way he's running the offense.  So the guy did.  Reeves being a gentleman in the highest order, never said much of anything, he went to Atlanta and with rag tag team with okay talent took them to the superbowl.    I don't like Elway, I respect his talent and ability to win (but he had a whole lot of help at Denver) but there are many that think he was overated (his QB rating wasn't all that hot if I recall).  Anyway I hope Tebow finishes well and improves and if that putz gets rid of him after this year, I wish Tebow success whereever he lands.

Elway 'disappointed' in reaction to Tebow comment

UF USF  I am talking about an entire season.  If you want to pick a random set of games, Kyle Orton was 6-0 as a Bronco starter, yet somehow he was released.  Why would a team release a qb with a perfect record?  Oh, because if you look at an entire season record, he was not very good.  Come on, dude.  Surely you are smarter than that.  The Dolphins had a hot streak with the Wildcat offense, and even beat New England, but it didn't last.  That style of play won't last against decent competition.  If Denver beats New England and Chicago, well then maybe I'll be a believer, but I am guessing Denver will lose both games by two tds or more.

Elway 'disappointed' in reaction to Tebow comment

1967 Packer: Tebow coming out of Florida was about as dissimilar to Elway as two QBs could be. Elway was polished, trained in the then great Stanford multiple set, pro-style passing offense, possessed an incredible arm with great throwing mechanics, combining uncommon power, accuracy and touch, and had great vision of the field. Tebow, a powerful runner first, played in a shot-gun offense, rarely taking snaps under center, marginally trained and experienced in a pro-style offense, if at all, and possessing poor throwing mechanics and little experience reading defenses. Tebow certainly has his individual strengths, but very different than Elway at similar points of their careers. As I've said before, it seems to me that comparing Tebow to the great John Elway at this point of Tebow's career is unfair to Tebow. In that respect, everyone, John Elway included, should let Tebow be himself without unfair comparison to All Time Great NFL QBs.

, you are so correct. If people want to look at the QB who has similar traits to Tebow (ie. run first, pass second) they only need look at Michael Vick. Look at how his preference for runing has contributed to his injuries this year.
