In the beginning of the season, Tim Tebow was projected to become the No. 3 starter. Tebow was unable to deliver the proper techniques of a quarterback, as he struggled with the playbook, struggled with his mechanics, and could not get the team going down the field. Granted, Tebow worked hard, but it was still not enough for John Fox.
Sooner or later, Fox placed Tebow at the No. 2 quarterback position behind quarterback Kyle Orton. As a result, Orton struggled all season to get the Broncos into a winning record, which ended up as Tebow playing midway through the game against the San Diego Chargers, going 4 for 10 for 79 yards and a touchdown, but lost 29-24.
As a result, last week Tebow got his first start of the season, but his numbers were not pretty. After a miserable first 3 quarters, Tebow managed to turn things around and finished the game going 13 for 27, 161 yards and throwing 2 touchdowns, as well as rushing for 65 yards on 8 carries. As a result, the team went into overtime against the Dolphins and the Broncos won 18-15.
Although this is just the beginning for Tim Tebow, there is still much room for improvement for Tebow. And he needs it fast.
The Broncos were very lucky to get away with a win, as the offense hasd a poor performance, but it could get worse for the Broncos. Running back Willis McGahee could be out for the season with a broken hand and they are already struggling without Knowshown Morneo. Not to mention that Brandon Lloyd was traded to the St. Louis Rams. For the Broncos, Tim Tebow’s time is now before it could be too late. Tebow has to show everyone that he can grow and develop for the year despite showing his ability that he can step up as a leader. Tebow’s mechanics are simply weak and if those do not change, the Broncos cold be on the hunt for Andrew Luck.
