I'm REALLY interested to see how this plays out, on a couple of fronts.


First of all, I remember a few years back a similar, but not nearly as big, furor breaking out over Vince Young. I remember, at the time, both SHK and I saying that Vince Young was not going to be a good NFL quarterback. Sure enough, he came into the league and proved just that. (After he was benched, revamped his style, worked on some things, and got another shot, he showed that he had more than just ability.) I see the same thing for Tebow. He was a GREAT QB.... in that Florida system. He'll be under center much more, if not almost exclusively, in the NFL. Defenses will be much better/quicker/stronger. He'll have to read them much better. His mechanics will need to be improved (even beyond what he's already done.) Plus, when will he get the chance to step in as a starter? (Or will he?) What will the Broncos do with him until that time? Spot fill-ins? Slot back? Tight end? Special teams? Should prove VERY interested. (If they moved up and spent a 2nd 1st round pick on him, they'll need to do SOMETHING to justify that.)


Secondly, after all the turmoil surrounding Josh McDaniels' first draft as Broncos head coach, doing something like this and jumping back in the spotlight is risky. He pretty much HAS to make this work or his short leash might just snap.


Should be some interesting news coming out of Denver for the foreseeable future.

I agree... It should be interesting in Denver. I just have to wonder if they couldn't have gotten Tebow a lot latter in the draft, maybe in the 2nd or even 3rd round. With Clausen and McCoy hanging around so long you have to wonder if the Broncos may have jumped the gun.

Being a Bronco fan I had feared this would happen since there had been talk a week or so ago about him visiting here and my only thought was that if they did draft him it would be much much later. I really like Colt McCoy and am not sure why they didn't want him instead. Tebow is a proven winner and a good athlete and hopefully over time I'll be proven wrong but right now I'm kind of in shock.

He went way too early in my book. Nothing wrong in taking a chance on a guy but why waste a first round pick (albeit a late one) on him? Perhaps they thought with Brady Quinn and Kyle Orton they could afford the time to bring Tebow along slowly? Suspect move. Maybe with Cutler still playing but Orton and Quinn? But what the hell do I know?

    • Why the fuck did a "best of" album take seven years to be released??
    • On a lighter note, this vision of covid in the future is hilarious 😂   
    • The "filling up the hospitals" argument is a slippery slope. I read an economic futurist book that looked at that argument in detail. He predicted that in the future we will all be controlled by insurance, whether we can get it or not. Genetic screening, vaccine passports, lifestyle choices, etc. If we are truly so worried about our health system capability, how long until smokers cannot get healthcare? Or those who play contact sport (unless they pay gigantic health premiums)? Or those who have a predisposition to a genetic health condition, eg. heart disease? Etc etc. Perhaps our treatment of the covid unvaccinated is the precursor of things to come.      
    • synthy? really. I need to spin that again. I thought it had quite a ballsy guitar sound 🤔 
    • Yeah I added this yesterday in the Eonian section and quoted your old post lol      
    • I'm not into harsh vocals at all, but you're right, they contrast between harsh and clean very well.  
    • This is the problem.  They end up getting sick, filling the hospitals and taking resources and care away from other people. I personally know somebody that had a bad stomach pain recently.  They went to the ER near and sat in the waiting room for 12 hours before being seen and that was only because the pain had gotten so bad that they were demanding to be seen.  Turned out the person had appendicitis and it had ruptured while in the waiting room.  They were rushed into emergency surgery and almost died.....But did survive. Basically that waiting time was the result of two things....The hospital packed with COVID cases and lack of staff due to them quitting because of vaccine mandates.  So the combination of people quitting their jobs because they don't want to get vaccinated combined with the rising COVID cases is just a bad combination.  And according to people I know that work in the medical field, they say the vast majority of people showing up at hospitals for COVID treatment are unvaccinated people. I respect the right of people not to get vaccinated....I really do.  If you don't want to trust science and medicine and that's your belief, then great.  But if somebody is that strongly anti-vaccine/anti-science & medicine, then stay the heck out of the hospital if you come down with it.  Just let it run it's course and whatever happens, happens.  Don't go running to the Doctor to save you by using medicine and treatment when you never wanted it in the first place. This thing is never going away on our current trajectory. 
    • How many people will be suing their governments when 5 to 7 years from now they find out the vax they got for covid-19 gave them terminal cancer or something else that will negatively impact their life. I'm not anti-vax but I think these vax's came about way too quickly. I know more people online who were fully vaccinated and died anyway from covid then I do unvaccinated who got deathly sick or died from it. I just wish this would go the fuck away. Last year at this time I was really ill from that bullshit. No more hospitals for a long time for me hopefully.
