Tim Tebow, wide receiver

Broncos fans wanted more of Tim Tebow this week and they got it.

They just didn’t get it exactly the way they expected. Tebow entered the game as a wide receiver early in the second quarter after Eddie Royal went down with a groin injury. He blocked on a third down run by Lance Ball that failed to move the chains and the Broncos punted. He wasn’t on the field to start the next Broncos possession and Eric Decker fumbled after catching a Kyle Orton pass to give the ball back to the Bengals.

The Broncos were already without Brandon Lloyd and Demaryius Thomas to start the game and Royal’s loss meant they only have Eric Decker and Matthew Willis as active wideouts. If Royal is out for the rest of the game, we could be seeing more of Tebow at receiver the rest of the way.

The Broncos lead 7-3 with just under five minutes to play in the first half at Denver.

    If Whines Ward could do it, Tebow can do it. (Just don’t expect Tebow to be a cheap shot artist)

    I like the guy, he is a good man. I say put him out on the field, he has the skill and ability to play multiple positions, might as well use him seeing as they are low on depth.

    In the beginning, Tebow was drafted at QB. On the sixth day, Tebow was moved to another position. On the seventh day, God rested.

    Looks like Houshmanzadeh will have a job by Monday this week.

    Tebow’s better built for a tight end than a wide receiver. And if he were coached at it, he might be a great one. The guy is a natural football player and a fierce competitor. He just has poor throwing mechanics and limited experience in a pro system. I hope at some point he can play for coaches who really want to develop his talent, wherever it might lie.

    This could be an opportunity to show that he is a leader at any position or in any role his team needs him.

    This guy is not an NFL QB the sooner he realizes that the sooner I’ll change my twitter name from tradetimtebow22. He is a fullback or a second Eric Decker but NOT A QB!
