Denver is in the spotlight regarding the ongoing management of Tim Tebow‘s future football prospects as the eyes of America turn towards John Elway of Denver Broncos management on a very significant week for the team.
The Denver Post reports, “in a season-ending question-and-answer session with head coach John Fox, executive vice president of football operations John Elway and general manager Brian Xanders, that this offseason will be all about the football for Tebow.
Coaching goals being set for Tebow are all about not staring down receivers, improving his footwork in the pocket, being more accurate, and playing more inside the pocket than outside. Looking after Bronco’s investment, Elway said he will go as far as to jump into things himself, working some on the field with Tebow as well as in the video study.”

Sports writer Cindy Boren of the Washington Post writes a good article about Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
“Tebow’s line in the Broncos’ 29-23 overtime victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers — an eerie 316 yards passing on 10 completions for a 31.6-yard average — means, once again, that supernatural significance is being assigned to a mere football game, with the Good Book trouncing the playbook.”
On Horiwood.Com at the time of writing, John 3 16 is the no.1 search term, Tim Tebow’s favorite verse of scripture.
Boren adds, “While the Biblical tie-in makes a tidy story line, let’s give a little credit to John Elway, Demaryius Thomas, Coach John Fox, a home-field advantage and the age and injuries that caught up to the Steelers.”
Fair enough. As well as talented players, winning football is all about teamwork too.
Elway, a Hall of Fame QB and Denver Broncos VP of football operations job is to manage Tebow and be his harshest critic. Boran, along with Matthew Brooks in an earlier article, had looked at how the Broncos in a wildcard game went in against The Steelers off the back of a 3 game losing streak. Elways pre-match advice to Tebow had been, “The key thing … is to go out, put everything behind him, go through his progressions and pull the trigger.
“It doesn’t matter how you win it,” Elway said, “as long as you win it.”
After the game, John Elway said to ESPN’s Ed Werner, “He really answered the bell. He came out and played great. You know what? He pulled that trigger. He put it on the money.”
Boren writes, “Thomas, who caught the game-winning touchdown pass that covered 80 yards, also caught passes for 51 and 58 yards in regulation. The Steelers’ pass defense was dealing with the absence of Ryan Clark, as well as age and injuries. By now, though, you know where Tebow placed the credit for his stellar, no-turnover game. “First and foremost, I just want to thank my savior, the Lord, Jesus Christ,” Tebow said afterward. “I am so thankful for the platform God has given me.””
