Boomer Esiason: Broncos stuck with this animal for awhile


“...I don’t believe he can [play quarterback].  He’s woefully inaccurate, he doesn’t have what I would consider even a remotely quick release.  I mean his release is so deliberate and so slow and he locks to his receivers.  And then how many balls do you see hit the ground to wide open receivers?  That to me is a red flag.  I believe it’s a good thing this happened for them over the last three weeks when they kind of handed the offense over to Tim Tebow…they were playing against other offenses that didn’t put any points on the board and their own defense was playing great.  You get it to the fourth quarter and now all the sudden you have the football player Tim Tebow doing his thing, which I tip my hat off to him, but you cannot win in this league sustaining that kind of offense, especially when you get into games when you may get down 14 to 17 points…

In my estimation John Fox probably put him out there thinking, okay, let’s put him out there, we’ll lose three or four games with him, it’s going to be ugly, and everyone will get off the Tim Tebow bandwagon.  The problem is, now all of the sudden he’s winning, and he’s winning in spectacular fashion late in games.  So they’re kind of stuck with this animal right now and when I say animal I mean the whole thing, the whole Tebowmania thing.  You know they are going to be stuck with him for awhile.”

Fast forward to the 10:45 mark to hear Esiason continue to blast Tebow.

Does this whole animal refrence mean Tebow gets to play in Beast Mode?  If so, I'm all for it.

I’m glad we had this talk.  Now, vaya con Dios, Brah.
