Freeman: What if McDaniels were still around?

Ten-Point Stance: I was wrong about Tebow (and I'm far from alone)

A first-round pick at quarterback is supposed to be a franchise player. We still don’t know if Tebow is that, but if McDaniels had stayed as coach, he likely would have designed a similar offense (and maybe a better one) for Tebow some time ago. In other words, the offense we see Tebow running might have been run at the beginning of this season or even last season.

McDaniels likely would have allowed Tebow to throw the ball more, coached him better, and believed in him more—because he drafted Tebow.

Obviously it's pointless, but still interesting to wonder what if - what if Tebow was still being coached up by Josh and Ben McDaniels, two people who presumably had unwavering belief in the guy? Instead, it's been quite clear that John Elway and John Fox have hemmed and hawed on Tim all year long (not that that wasn't understandable).
