John Elway: Tim Tebow Is Our Guy, But He Has To Improve
Tim Tebow’s starting spot on the Denver Broncos is secure at the moment, but Vice President John Elway says that the young quaterback still has a lot of room for improvement.
Elway gave the Mile High Messiah a strong endorsement today saying that Tebow would be the Broncos’ quarterback for a “long time,” but said that Tebow has a lot of work to do during the off-season.
But Tebow isn’t the only part of the Broncos’ offense that needs work. Elway said:
“There’s things we have to get him to do within our offense to be more successful as an offense. We feel that’s something we have to do to be able to get better as an offense. To add that threat makes everything else he does that much better.”
Tebow is currently training at UCLA with Noel Mazzone. Elway isn’t allowed to give Tebow any workout routines, but he said that Tebow’s work ethic alleviates any concern that he might have. Elway said that Tebow has plenty of strengths, but his most valuable talent is his ability to motivate the team. Elway said:
“He added a spark. I was really happy with his progress. We’re hoping he’s going to be the guy for a long, long time.”
When Tebow took over the starting spot for the Broncos last year the team was 1-4. Tebow was able to lead the Broncos to an 8-5 finish, thanks to five second-half comebacks, giving the Broncos their first playoff spot since 2005.
Do you think Tim Tebow will be the long-term quarterback for the Denver Broncos?
