Tebow, McDaniels made instant connection

When the Broncos traded from the fringes of the top ten into the twenties on Thursday night, Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times turned around and said they’re trying to get Tebow.  And though the Broncos ultimately traded back into round one to get him after grabbing receiver Demaryius Thomas with the 22nd overall pick, the Broncos made it happen.

As Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post points out, the eventual marriage was sparked by a 15-minute session at the Scouting Combine, when Tebow met with coach Josh McDaniels and other members of the Broncos’ contingent.

“I was jacked leaving that room,” Tebow said.  “I didn’t
even want to visit another room.  It was not enough time.  We were excited, we were enthusiastic.  There was passion.  It was just
intense, and it was ball, and it was juice.  The juice level in that
room was high, and it was awesome.”

McDaniels agreed.  “We left [the Combine] saying, ‘Boy, that’s
pretty unique, what he has and his passion for this game and for
winning.’  He’s been a winner, and you could see why.”

Tebow has a plan for winning the affection of the rest of the organization.  “I’m going to have one goal and that
goal is to earn the respect of my teammates and coaches,” Tebow said.  “That’s the
only goal I have.  It’s not to be the starting quarterback
right now, it is to earn their respect, because when you earn respect
from people, then they begin to like you, and then they believe in you,
and then they begin to love you, and then you have a team that is
united and cares about each other more than anything else.

“Then you go out there and you play for each other, you play for your coaches and you win championships.”

Whether the last part happens remains to be seen.  But we’re not ready to bet against the Broncos, or against Tebow.

    what in the blue hell happened in there?

  2. “Whether the last part happens remains to be seen. But we’re not ready to bet against the Broncos, or against Tebow.”
    That’s the big thing about Tebow. He will work his ass off to prove the rest of us wrong.
    If he does it, well & good since everybody loves to see a great football player (unless you are a douchebag)

  3. florio…you may not be ready to bet against the ponies and the disciple, but a lot of people are definitely ready to.

    The gay jokes just write themselves..

    …I think I am going to puke.

    Insert gay sexual innuendo here..

  7. This guy really needs to tone it down. When he’s around adults he’s just going to be annoying.

  8. Not sure where all the gay jokes and hate is coming from. WOW.
    Tebow will be a top NFL player, just a matter of time.

  9. With his only issue being his mechanics going to the Broncos and McD mentoring him is probably the best thing that could have happened.
    I still hate the bastard and the non-stop coverage he gets, but he does seem special.

  10. Theres something about this kid that makes me think he can do it.
    Yes he hasnt played in a pro style offense but thats not his fault it was the system at Florida. That doesnt mean he cant play in a pro style offense. What we do know is he mastered as well or better the spread offense then any other player.
    We also know that he has conquered anything put in front of him to this point. He has won a championship, he has won a heisman, he has schocked people with how fast he fixed his throwing motion, and he was drafted in the first round when everyone said he would be lucky to go in the third. Now you can say it was the Broncos who did that and it was a mistake but they did it because Tebow made them believe in him.
    Im not a Gators fan or a Broncos fan and Im not even really a Tebow fan, but for people to count this kid out after he has proven time after time not to do it is sheepish. Your just following what you hear a couple of so called experts on tv, who by the way are only on tv because they couldnt get a job being a real scout, saying about him.

  11. Id like to see some competition in the AFC West, The chargers havent really been challenged. The last two year the chargers go 4-1-0-1(Beaten by ref) and 5-1 in division.

  12. Are you sure that quote isn’t from Big Ben describing the bathroom at the Capital City Club in Milledgeville?

  13. I am far from a Tebow fan but you losers need to find better things to do than bash a guy because of the things he says.

  14. “it was ball, it was juice, it was a special moment between 2 guys… it felt like middle school detention all over again”

  15. Tebow & McDaniels are going to recreate the pottery scene from Ghost and use it for the program cover.

  16. Sounded like they were shooting gay porn rather than having a meeting of the minds. Ball and Juice? Balljuice? disgusting.

  17. why cant people just keep it real when talking about him?
    who cares if hes a good ole christian boy. i personally think hes an extremist.
    he will alienate people in the locker room with his anti abortion commercials and prayer circles.
    this guy is a 6th round talent who is not a natural passer and is about as dumb as a rock. he wont be able to read coverages.
    and they actually expect him to come in… rework his mechanics and delivery and all of a sudden get a feel for the passing game?
    GOOD LUCK!

  18. So Mcdaniels likes young boys and Tebow likes grown men who look young boys??
    and did Tebow mean there was ball juice after he was jacked?

  19. Tebow, Mcdaniles. Jacking and juicing… Urban is going to get jealous and stroke out Timmy. Be careful.

  20. Urban Meyer is standing in front of Tim’s house with a boom box playing “In your Eyes”.
    He just can’t quit him.

  21. Real Vikings fans wouldn’t cheer for Favre says:
    “it was ball, and it was juice. The juice level in that room was high, and it was awesome.”
    what in the blue hell happened in there?
    ———————————-
    LMAO!
    I wouldn’t even want to be a fly on the wall in that room. I’d probably still have goo all over me.

  22. ” DonkeyRider says: April 25, 2010 11:22 PM
    Ha! Tebow and McDaniels have juice for each other.”
    I don’t think that one can be topped! Thats just wrong! hahaha

  23. Problem is, McDaniels forfetied a 2, 3 and 4 to move UP to get him.
    Ozzie Newsome straight raped them on that deal. McDaniels could have gotten him way later.

  24. Isn’t he just so f*cking blessed. Is it just me or when Tebow speaks, he sounds like he’s semi-retarded? I don’t trust a Jesus freak or a home schooled kid. He’s going to end up eating the brains of homeless black boys or some sick sh%t.

  25. And then, as Tebow left the room, McDaniels looked into his eyese and broke into song, “You never close your eyes anymore when I kiss your lips…”
    It was love from then on.
    Barf.

  26. Tebow is great, but the most interesting draft pick in the first round was DeMarius Thomas by a wide margin.
    His grandmother got 40 years for dealing coke. His mother got 20 for not selling out Granny. Man that is HARDASS. Don’t even ask about his Dad or his Grandad.
    Last year I fingered Mike Wallace as the best bargain in the draft, and he has been the man. This year, believe me, it’s Bay Bay Thomas. Christmas gift to NFL fans.

  27. This will be the defining move of McD’s career with the Broncos. If Tebow becomes a good QB, he’ll look very smart. I guess we’ll just see.

  28. We’ll see how much respect he gets the first time he bends over in the locker room shower, next to one of his linemen…
    js

  29. I swear the fans on this site get dumber and dumber each time they reply with such drivel.
    The passion in the room was in reference to the game itself, because they all had the same level of love for the sport itself. Same with juice, it is in reference to a high level of excitement, not sexually, you bunch of moronic dimwits. I doubt anyone who responds on this site has played ball beyond the High School level or they would have known what all of it meant. It’s easy to talk crap when you are in front of a computer and your fat ass has never played a sport at such a high level, collegiate or pro…it’s easy to bitch and say a kid will not make it when chances are you could not go as far, respect the kid a bit…he’s earned that.

  30. “He’s been a winner, and you could see why.”
    Yeah,you sure can..he went to Florida.Would he be a winner if he had went to Duke? No championships and no heismans.
    Florida won with Chris Leak(13-1)..hows his NFL career going?

  31. The Tebow haters and naysayers are probably just degenerate gamblers who have lost fortunes betting against the guy.

  32. McDaniels is a genius… everyone criticizing this now is going to be eating their own shiz soon.
    McD+Tebow= scary for defenses for the next 15 years
    Juice level is riding high amongst true, honest, knowledgeable Broncos fans.
    I will take tebow over cutler, thomas over marshall ALL DAY ANY DAY
    MILE HIGH SALUTE!!!

  33. “The gay jokes just write themselves..”
    laughing my ass off!
    You said it… still that guy is my hero.

  34. What a romance story.
    My money is on McDaniels not being the Denver HC by the time Tebow is ready to take a snap from center.

  35. Not a Bronco fan, not a Gator homer either – Penn State alum who’s always been all about the Steelers and the Nittany Lions … but how in the hell does one not root hard for Tim Tebow?
    Tebow is the real deal, solid as it gets —- almost to the point of appearing to be too good to be true. Even all the charity work he does as a college kid in third world nations is mind-blowing. Think about what most of us were doing in college. The guy is unreal.
    I hope to hell that Tebow has a rewarding NFL experience and an even better life beyond the game. Good guy — sucks to have so many haters that want to bring him down.

  36. “I was jacked leaving the room”
    “juice level”
    Uhhhh… am I gonna see some incriminating pictures hit the internet in a few months?

  37. If only all the NFL players had his attitude! Can’t understand all the Tebow haters out there, but the guy is a winner plain and simple. Funny how alot of players come out and thank God before they say a word at a press conference, but when Tebow does it he’s rediculed.

  38. “Give him 2-3 years and he’ll be a solid quarterback.”
    You could be right but in 2-3 years McDaniels won’t be coaching the broncos.

  39. What is it with this “WE” sheit with Tebow? Does he always have a mouse in his pocket? Annoying…………..

  40. As much as I hate the Donco’s, after listening to this kids interviews, and how he handle’s himself, and his passion for the game, it sounds like a lot of people are going to eat crow in a few years. There really does seem to be something about him which will translate being into a good if not great professional football player.
    …even if his quotes sounded entirely too gay…

  41. Yeah, they need to just go off and, to steal a line from American Idol, get married and make little Danny Gokey babies.
    If I was the other Broncos, I wouldn’t drop the soap.

  42. Its nice, the Donks haven’t had much to cheer about lately.
    OK, maybe they cheered a little when Cutler sucked an ass or two in Chicago…but other than that…not much.

  43. At some point, the grab assing, giggling and telling each other how hard they work isn’t enough. You need to win some games. Keep that in mind McDaniels.

  44. Reminds me of the ’05 draft, when Stink Schlereth referred to a player as a “full-grown man and a football playin’ Jesse”.
    Remember, Tim Tebow won over Mr. Florio on the telephone, and you heathen haters will be overrun by his 250 pounds of concrete cyanide ball juice as well.
    Search your feelings, you know it to be true!

  45. what is all this juice talk?
    Tebow is either admitting to being gay for Mcdaniels or using steroids with Mcdaniels- either way his God disapproves.

  46. You sure you’re not ready to bet against TeBlow?
    I got $100 says Tebow doesn’t even beat out Orton for the job. Good luck getting the players respect while preaching from the bench.

  47. “We were excited, we were enthusiastic. There was passion. It was just intense, and it was ball, and it was juice. The juice level in that room was high, and it was awesome.”

    Were they shooting a gay porno? WTF?!?!

  48. Thor says:Yeah, they need to just go off and, to steal a line from American Idol, get married and make little Danny Gokey babies.
    ha- I think they’d actually make Lee Dewyze babies tho- I’ve thought since the beginning Lee looks like he could be related to Tebow.

  49. Nobody thought Brady was going to be a decent NFL starter, nobody even picked him till the sixth round.
    Passion and personal drive can close the gap sometimes.

  50. Tim Tebow has more heart than any rookie coming into the NFL… take your piece of garbage types like Jamarcus Russell and give me a Tim Tebow any day… it’s already been proven time and time again you can not teach heart and being a winner… you can teach mechanics.
    Tim Tebow will be successful in the NFL because Tim Tebow won’t allow himself to fail.
    Again, give me that kind of guy any day.

  51. I don’t see how Tebow won’t, at the very least, be a decent football player in the NFL. He has the will and the motivation do so. Still, the Broncos took him too high and gave up too many picks to get there. They could have gotten him in the second round without even moving up the way the draft went down.

  52. Tebow is a good pick for the football business in Denver. He will definitely sell tickets. Season tickets for the Broncos should spike. If McDaniels can do for Tebow what he did for Tom Brady Denver made a very smart move. He will not be a starter. He knows it . His time will come . God knows when. No, God dose not care about football. He dose care about Tim Tebow and has blessed this young man with talent for a sport tht millions of people follow. Is there a plan here? Only God knows. So to all you Tebow haters, I hope you don’t choke too bad on the ugly words you will have to swallow later.

  53. I really thought that after Tebow became a 1st round pick all of you Tebow hating buffoons (that promised the world he wouldn’t be picked before the 7th round) would grab a Budweiser and crawl back into your stinkholes. But nope. You’re back with all your Tebow hating venom. Well, you were wrong again, turds.

  54. So they touched each others balls and shared some “juice”, wink wink.
    When are they moving in together?!?!

  55. Are we going to see an SI cover with McDaniels and Tebow ala Ricky Williams & Mike Ditka?
    The bigger question: Who would wear the dress?

  56. Not only will this guy win superbowls, he will be starting in the pro bowl a few years during his career.

  57. Teblow has all the genuineness of a TV evangelist. The guy is a media sham who will make millions off the gullible public.

  58. “Met him last week on a routine cable instalation, but I feel like I’ve known him my whole life…” – Chip Douglas

  59. No, no, no! You’ve all got it wrong!
    He’s going to be the new ad spokesman for Florida ORANGE juice. (He’s a big fan of Anita Bryant, you know, so he’s really jacked about the juicy opportunity.)

  60. Too bad McDaniels won’t be around long enough to make an impace on Tebow’s careert. McDaniels will be gone by the end of next season.

  61. I thought the pick was another dumb McDaniels “reach” pick when he could have taken him later and saved the other picks he traded away.
    I’ll skip the gay comments and Jesus loves him comments, they’ve been well covered.
    But Tebow was quoted as saying something extremely important in the interview that McDaniels could certainly learn from.
    “I’m going to have one goal and that goal is to earn the respect of my teammates and coaches,” Tebow said. ”
    If McDaniels made any attempt to earn his players respect through his words & actions instead of demanding respect, the Broncos would be a much better & far more cohesive team.

  62. @filthylucre
    He said, “Could I taste yo’ juice?”
    Nice with the Stern!! That was the first thing I thought about.

  63. that is sweet…. as a Chiefs fan I hope they live happily ever after while we kick their ass year after year

  64. Makes perfect sense. Tebow believes in God, and McDaniels believes he IS God.
    I’ll be here all week, folks – tip your waitress…

    ————————————————–
    too bad it wasnt McDaniels that did anything for Brady, it was actually Tom Martinez who should be (and is in most circles) credited for Tom Brady’s success

  66. Tebow is the largest of the two but I’d bet McDaniels will lead while dancing with Tim. He is so blessed to have found a soulmate to replace Urban.

  67. I realize it’s only Monday but this has to be the dumbest comment of the week.

    If McDaniels can do for Tebow what he did for Tom Brady Denver made a very smart move.
    _____________
    Brady had led the Pats to 2 SB wins and been to 1 Pro Bowl while McDaniels was fetching coffee for Bellichick before having any responsibility for QB’s in NE. During McD’s four years actually coaching in NE 2004-08 Brady was named to 3 more Pro Bowls and in o4 they won another SB. In 07 Brady’s best year, Moss & Welker arrived and Brady finally had two quality WR’s for the first time in his career.
    To suggest McDaniels is responsible for Brady’s success is just plain wrong. Brady’s two best years were after Moss & Welker arrived.

  68. I haven’t felt this level of awkward man love since Kevin Bacon and Michael Jordan played grab ass in that Hanes commercial.

  69. He honestly sounds kind of stupid when he speaks..
    It’s all in crypts and phrases..
    ” I will work hard”; and “do whatever I’m asked”
    sounds like a neanderthal..
    hope he does well though.

  70. Doubters doubters…
    The Jags picked Alualu with the 10 overall
    The Chargers moved up 16 spots to grab Matthews
    Every NFL team let Sergio Kindle slip past them
    It is obvious that teams either know something that we don’t or don’t look at the draft the same way we look at it. But no way Tebow was the biggest risk or biggest reach.
    Either way, to snatch up a kid that we 100% know will be the first person in the facility in the morning and the last one out at night will not be a bad thing. And WTF are you talking about with him being stupid? Kids gonna shine in the NFL, hes gonna dominate the red zone like no one you’ve ever seen.
    It’s pretty weird that people like Mel Kiper and McShay don’t grade him higher but people like Tony Dungy, Bill Belichick, and McDaniels see his potential. Who do you trust?

    Ok, that’s it. I am so tired of hearing about what McDaniels supposedly did for Brady. Here’s the facts: Brady had 3 SB rings before McDaniels took over as offensive coordinator. In other words, Brady had already become the QB that he was going to be by the time McDaniels got there. McDaniels did not shape, develop, or do anything else to make Brady what he was. McDaniels was simply lucky enough to have Brady running the offense on the field. Furthermore, the system that gave McDaniels the reputation of being an offensive genius was little more than an adaptation of Weis’ offensive scheme. As for Brady’s record numbers in 2007, I can name two players right now who were more instrumental in producing them than McDaniels was…Randy Moss and Wes Welker. Was the Pats offensive incredible with McDaniels as OC? Of course. Does he deserve some credit for that? Of course. He did not, however, install a dramatically new scheme in NE. Brady’s numbers skyrocketed because he had a superb receiving corps for the first time in his career. End of story.

  72. So wait….
    Was Tebow jacked until his balls were juiced?
    Or did he get juiced and afterwards McDaniels jacked him?
    So confusing.

  73. Eric Decker will make whoever the QB is look good for Denver. He made Adam Weber look good, and Weber is god awful.

  74. “I was jacked leaving that room,” Tebow said. “I didn’t even want to visit another room. It was not enough time. We were excited, we were enthusiastic. There was passion. It was just intense, and it was ball, and it was juice. The juice level in that room was high, and it was awesome.”
    And so begins the first Chapter there on Bronkback Mountain…..
    Followed with a loud sqeaking door and PR people/Agents stuffing that Boy back in the closet.
    Yuck.
