Broncos Tebow: Post-Draft Quotes

A few things to read this morning about Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos:

Dan Shanoff, "Tebow exceptionalism has been proven over and over again. At some point, doubting should become benefit-of-the-doubt. The default should be that he will succeed." Link.

Clay Travis, Fanhouse: "The rest of the NFL just got Tebow'ed." Link. (This is a terrific column.)

Chris Brown, "I like Tim Tebow as a player and I have always thought he will one day start at quarterback in the NFL — the only variables are how long it takes and how long he stays there." Link. (I left a long comment at the end of this post.)

Woody Paige, Denver Post: "Get on the roller-coaster, buckle your seat belts, sit back and enjoy the ride. It definitely will be fun, fascinating, fantastic." Link.

Sayre Bedinger, Mile High Report: "In all honesty, this is a perfect pick for the Broncos, who are in need of a long term solution at the quarterback position." Link.

Tim Tebow (via Len Pasquarelli, ""I just have a passion to play football. When you do things different than other people sometimes do them, and you don't settle for just being average, you open yourself up [for criticism]. But I'm ready for it. I've learned to live with it. I never just wanted to do things the same way everybody else does." Link.

Darren Rovell, CNBC: Tebow No. 1-ranked "Winner" of the Draft. Link.

Bill Williamson, "Tebow is now McDaniels’ pet project. He is the guy he has been looking for since he came to Denver." Link. "To make a short story long, Tebow is viewed as the ultimate wager for an NFL coaching staff seeking the ultimate project." Link.

David Ramsey, Colorado Springs Gazette: "Too-good-to-be-true Tebow trots into our lives here in Colorado. He’s one of the most intriguing athletes of our time, a young man concerned about much more than a mere game. He’ll make our state a better place. But I’m doubtful he will ever excel as an NFL quarterback." Link.

Josh McDaniels, Broncos head coach: "Tim is a player who is capable of doing different things. He could be a gameplan-type thing if that's what we determine is best early in his career. ... He's a guy that gives you the opportunity to create some packages like that and if you want to use that then you can get creative." Link. (Tons of quotes here, from McDaniels and Tebow.)

Kissing Suzy Kolber: Tebow draft photo gallery (amusing) Nice recap of the pick, featuring a cameo quote by me.

If you see any other good articles, columns or quotes, please feel free to put them in the comments.


  1. Tebow already has a bit of a relationship with "Focus on the Family", the organization that was the source of that much-talked-about superbowl commercial back in February. Denver is not far from the FOTF headquarters in Colorado Springs. I can't help but think that Tebow's involvement with FOTF will only increase once he gets to Denver.

    It's good to know that Denver is happy to have him!
