We know that front office types don’t like to tip their hand as to what moves they are attempting to make, especially when it comes to personnel decisions. Flat out lying to your fan base is a whole different situation though.

That may be the case with John Elway who had been telling Denver Broncos fans that Tim Tebow had earned the right to be the team’s starter going into camp all the while Elway was quietly shopping Tebow.

This was going on even during the NFL Scouting Combine,weeks before Peyton Manning would be released by the Indianapolis Colts.

But I believe that Elway was shopping Tebow’s name around as far back as last season. I have never been convinced that Elway wanted Tebow there and it was just a matter of time before he played his cards.
And it’s more than just a hatred for Tebow’s game which everyone believes will get better because let’s face it, it can’t get any worse. No, Elway hates everything that Tebow stands for both as a person and player.

Okay maybe I’m going a little too far. It could be another cardinal sin that makes every thought of Tim Tebow bring Elway near the point of tossing his cookies; Elway’s pride.

Elway doesn’t want Tebow tied to the legacy he is trying to build in Denver and that is why he has been trying to remove Tebow from the moment he landed the vice president of football operations job there.

But as you live, you learn and we all know how powerful a thing like karma can be. Not that Tebow is anybody special but Elway’s handling of this matter could have some really serious repercussions for this team.
Everything happened too perfectly. Manning came along at the right time, Elway made the right overture to get him to Denver, and of course it didn’t take long to find a suitor to take Tebow off his hands.

All this leads me to believe that something will goseriously wrong in Denver this season. I don’t know exactly what it will be and unlike Pat Robertson, I really hope it doesn’t have anything to do with Manning’s health.

It could be something as crazy as Tebow leading the New York Jets to a playoff victory over the Broncos, or finally leading the Jets to their first Super Bowl since Broadway Joe took them there.

Like I said, I really don’t know what will happen but what I will tell you is to expect the unexpected this season because this matter is far from over. Fate will have the final say in this one.
