The legend of Tim Tebow is quickly turning around the opinion of executive vice president of football operations and former Bronco Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway.
In an interview with The Associated Press, Elway undoubtedly backed Tebow as the franchise quarterback.
“Tim Tebow’s not going anywhere,” Elway said. “I mean, he’s going to be a Bronco and we’re going to do everything we can and hopefully he’s that guy.”
Why the change all of a sudden?
“Because, he’s done what we knew he could do and where we’ve seen his progress is what he does within the pocket. What we’ve said, and I said it when I first got here, was we know Tim’s a great player and what we’ve got to do is make him a great quarterback, and what I’ve learned is you’ve got to be able to win from within the pocket.”
The progression in the pocket combined with his competitiveness is making Elway a believer.
“We want it to happen because of the competitor he is and what type of person he is and how he represents not only himself but represents the Broncos and the city,” Elway said. “People have been watching him, so he’s a draw. But that’s where some time in the offseason (helps) and it comes down to timing and throwing.
