Tim Tebow has thrived throughout his football career despite very few people having confidence in him, but it seems as though the odds are stacked against him today more than they have ever been. After a wasted season with the New York Jets, it remains to be seen if there is an NFL team out there willing to give the former Florida star a chance to play. Denver Broncos vice president of football operations John Elway always has good things to say about Tebow. However, he traded him for a reason. Most people feel as though Tebow is not an NFL starting quarterback. Elway told the “Boomer and Carton” show on Thursday that Tebow would need a unique situation to become a full-time starter again. “In the right situation, I think it’s a possibility,” Elway said. “He’s got to be in the right situation. … He’s a good kid and he works his tail off.” In other words, he just doesn’t have the skill set. Another NFL quarterback legend recently expressed a similar opinion about Tebow, saying that it will be difficult for him to ever be a starting quarterback in the NFL again. Tebow supporters will point to the fact that Tebow won more playoff games in his first season as Denver’s starting quarterback than Peyton Manning did, but you would have to be incredibly naive to argue that Tebow is a better quarterback than Manning. As we said before, Tebow’s only hope is that a team like the Jacksonville Jaguars gives him a shot because of his marketability. What he did with the Broncos a season ago was impressive, but it’s important to remember that the team made the playoffs with an 8-8 record. Had they missed the postseason (which most 8-8 teams do), there would be even fewer people who feel Tebow is a viable NFL starting quarterback.
