Tebow focuses on leadership, communication

Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow may never be able to full repair all of his weaknesses, most notably a looping, catapult-style delivery and the accuracy, at times, of a drowsy three-year-old standing at a toilet with the seat down, he’s wisely accentuating his strengths.

Ed Werder of ESPN, in Miami for a game that remains compelling despite the combined 1-9 record of the two teams involved, reports that Tebow recently has been gathering the offensive players after practice to engage in self-evaluation, without the involvement of coaches.  That’s the kind of leadership that will make the men around him play better, which will make Tebow play better — and which will help the Broncos win games.

Tebow also is addressing the weaknesses that can be improved.  Receiver Eric Decker told Werder that, last year, Tebow was a mumbler in the huddle.  This year, Tebow is focusing on communicating clearly and confidently.

If there’s any confidence in Miami today, it won’t be coming from the home team’s sideline.  The Dolphins are 1-11 in their last 12 home games, and today’s game features a celebration of Tebow’s 2008 national championship team at Florida.

    It sounds like Tebow will make a solid coach. I personally still don’t believe he’s the future of that team, and that may be unpopular, but I won’t say the guy couldn’t make a good coach.

    He needs to focus on completing passes and not looking for an excuse to run!!

    He needs to focus on being accurate spinning the rock

    He needs to focus on throwing the football properly.

    Hmmmmmm, wonder if the fans down there will start chanting “We want Orton”

    This is going to be the second coming of our lord and savior. Praise him! I hope his divine leadership can bring the broncos a win. WWTD

    That’s the problem with the Broncos…..the quarterback hasn’t been talking loud enough in the huddle.

    leadership, communication, and secret trips to the continental.

    It’s time to prove it on the field. He played well enough last year to deserve this chance, and now we will see what he has. Whether he’s a christian or not is immaterial. Good luck Mr. Tebow

    I’m not sure if Fox and Elway were trying to torpedo any success from TT by basically giving away their best (?) receiver or cutting a cancer that would’ve been a detriment to the team success.Either way I’ll be watching a lot of this game and will be pulling for the Broncs, not just one guy.

    “Tebow focuses on leadership, communication” Pretty much what every Quarterback should do. Thank you Captain Obvious.

    The Dolphins won’t be able to fully repair their main weakness unless they get a real QB. Is their owner’s hosting a celebration of the other team’s QB a backhanded slap at his own team and a way to demoralize them so he gets Luck?

    So a mumbling 3 year old was a first round draft pick? That was a weird post to read…

  15. mempusa says: Oct 23, 2011 10:40 AM

    I hope Tebow rips it up in Miami today

    Just reading that article about Tebow made me a better person.

  17. trbowman says: Oct 23, 2011 10:55 AM

    I feel bad for anyone who hates a guy like Tim Tebow

  18. polegojim says: Oct 23, 2011 11:01 AM

    I love the Tebow move and his energy.

    That said, the Miami defense will give him more grief than he can handle today and the Bronco;s will lose, but it will still be a step forward.

    Tebow > F. l .o.r.i.o

    So Tebow’s a “leader” now? Wasn’t it Kyle Orton who led voluntary team workouts during the lockout this summer while Timmy was out promoting his book? You know, the riveting autobiography of the amazing 22 years we have been fortunate to share with him on this planet? Give me a break.

  21. broncfanor says: Oct 23, 2011 11:50 AM

    Yeah because ALL he did was promote his book right?

    The FIVE stops on his tour took the ENTIRE off season.

    And oh btw how did Orton’s off season workouts do for him and the team?

    1-4 with Orton on the bench so what was your point again?
