Nate Jackson: With Tim Tebow, Broncos defying NFL wisdom
John Elway is the Denver Broncos. If anyone will put his heart and his mind into the task at hand — winning football games — John can be trusted to do it. His reputation is on the line. When he said last week he wasn’t quite sure if Tim was the guy yet, he meant it with the objectivity of a man who is trying to do the job he has been hired to do. There is no conspiracy here. Behind closed doors, there are football men who are running a professional football team who are trying to win games. That’s it…But let’s not expect men who have spent their adult lives playing and coaching the game of professional football to so quickly turn their backs on the cornerstones of their trade…The Broncos defense and special teams are playing beautifully. It’s hard to tell exactly why, but it seems as if they are playing more passionately, more cohesively, more like a team.
