Let's be clear about something, we are Tebow fans.  Tim Tebow plays for Denver, we watch Denver.  Tebow gets traded, we go with him.  Tim Tebow decides he's going to retire and enters a new realm of public life, we go with him.  Having said that, watching Denver's game last night was painful.

We are life long Gators, from Gainesville, and the NFL has always taken a back seat to SEC ball.  We only vaguely remember Elway's glory days, so we don't have the history or the same stake in the Broncos that true Brocomaniacs have.  But, still, that was one of the worst football games we have seen in a long time.  The penalties, the interception, watching Janikowski kick a record tying field goal, the "whoopsie" fumble, and the inability to punch one in.  And all the while our boy stood on the sidelines. 

But you know what fellow TeBroncos, we're glad our boy was spared that ugly mess.  Really. It was clear that the Broncos as a team were not ready to play.  And if John Fox is going to run an offense that the Denver Post describes as "medieval" then let Orton run it. 

Better to be a witness to a train wreck than to be a victim of it.  At least witnesses to a wreck can offer help when it is over.  And the train wreck isn't only on the field, it's spilling out of the front office as well.

So hold off on the "Tebow! Tebow! Tebow!" chants, because John Fox will continue to ignore them, and any question about Tebow playing.

And because Bible verses on eye black cheer us around here, here's our verse for the day, and for what looks like is going to be a very long season:

Psalm 27:14  Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.
