Remember back in August when Silver reported this per "one highly knowledgeable member of the organization":
As one highly knowledgeable member of the organization told me Monday: “If everything was totally equal, and this were a competition based only on performance at this camp, Tebow would probably be the fourth-string guy. Kyle [Orton] is far and away the best, and Tebow’s way behind [Brady] Quinn too. And I’m telling you, Adam Weber is flat-out better right now.”And then John Fox blew the comment off that it must have been "the cook."
Well, yesterday, Silver printed the following quote by an unnamed Lions player:
“Can you believe ’15’?” one Detroit Lions defender asked after his team’s 45-10 immolation of Tebow and the Denver Broncos. “Come on – that’s embarrassing. I mean, it’s a joke. We knew all week that if we brought any kind of defensive pressure, he couldn’t do anything. In the second half it got boring out there. We were like, ‘Come on – that’s your quarterback? Seriously?’ ”Today, Lions DE Cliff Avril on Jim Rome show today talking about Yahoo report on Tebow:
"Tebow is not a joke. Nobody meant that. He's a winner..."

Silver gets good "quotes" but at what cost? 0-2.
