“I think we have a great competitor so that gives us hope,” Broncos Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway said of rookie quarterback Tim Tebow. “It’s gonna take a little bit of time, but I think he’ll battle his way in there and hopefully get in the thick of things quick.”
He added: “He’s played in big games. You can’t teach experience.”
“He’s got the potential, he won at the college ranks, and won the Heisman, so there is talent there, there’s a want there,” Elway said. “I think we have a great competitor so that gives us hope.”
“He did text me when he came in town, which I thought was pretty neat, so I’m looking forward to meeting him and if I can help in any way, I’m more than glad to.”
As if I needed any more reason to fully reverse field on my opinion of Tebow, an endorsement from Elway has sealed the deal.
And speaking of Elway… If I see that silly NFL Network commercial one more time with “This one’s for John!” in it, I’m pretty sure my TV won’t survive.
