Follow Up: Tim Tebow Not The Answer In 2012

I have gone on the air more than once this week, and
said that not John Elway, nor John Fox should be
trusted when they espouse their support of Tim Tebow.
That sentiment has been supported even today in a
story by Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, and quotes
from Broncos head coach John Fox. Fox replied to Jim
Rome during an appearance on his show when asked if
Tebow was the QB for the Broncos for 2012 by saying:

We get that question a lot, whether it’s John Elway or
myself, We’re both his biggest fans. I mean, we love
him. How would you not at 7-1? I think right now, all
our focus is, let’s get this season done. We love him,
he’s great, we’re pulling for him, and you know, we’ll
make those decisions when this season is over and not
worry about next season at this point.

This may be prudent as a head coach, but it also speaks
to how Tebow is truly viewed within the organization,
he is loved, respected, and even admired, but not
necessarily trusted to take them to the promise land.
As long as he keeps winning, they ride the Tebow train,
once the hiccups start, it's time to look in a different
direction. I expected nothing less, and neither should
Broncos fans. Question is will Lindsey Vonn still be
interested in a guy who lost his starting QB job?
