Paul Kruger taunted the Broncos after his Ravens beat them in the playoffs on Saturday. The Baltimore DE/LB tweeted after his team’s 38-35 2OT win that Denver would have been better off keeping Tim Tebow at quarterback instead of signing Peyton Manning: Denver shoulda stuck with Tebow — Paul Kruger (@pkruger99) January 13, 2013 Kruger’s tweet was in reference to Denver’s controversial decision to trade Tebow and replace him with Manning after last season. Tebow became the Broncos’ starter in Week 7 last season and the team went 7-4 under his leadership. They went 8-8, reached the playoffs, and beat the Steelers in the Wild Card round. Despite Tebow’s improbable success, team executive John Elway never fully seemed to believe in the young quarterback. Even after Tebow helped them win a playoff game, Elway opted for the future Hall of Famer instead. Most rational fans wouldn’t deny that Elway made the best decision for his team after seeing how well the Broncos played this season. That makes me wonder if Kruger was being sarcastic or serious with his tweet. Kruger had three tackles and recovered Manning’s fumble during the game, so maybe his implication is that Tebow wouldn’t have given up the ball. Or maybe he was just trying to get under the skin of the team he just beat. What we do know is that Tim Tebow’s brother probably agrees with him.
