The Broncos went 3-1 without Fox roaming the sideline. Fox was medically cleared by doctors and after consulting with team football operations head honcho, John Elway, they decided it was time for him to make his return on the field with his players.
“On the field you have a little bit better feel for the players,” Fox said.
Bright lights, big city, and now the east coast will have Tebow. Tim Tebow will now take his brand of football to the Jets. Could you imagine if the Jets would have taken Tebow in the draft?….. The reaction from the Jets fans when the pick was announced would of been crazy. The boos and screams at that pick would be priceless. Now Tebow is a New York QB. and all the pressure that comes with that position in New york. Mark Sanchez has to be thinking if I have a bad game or even a couple of interceptions in a half am I going to get the hook. The Jets fans will be screaming for Tebow and his 4th quarter magic. Why would you sign Sanchez to a new deal, and then bring in a QB that will only start a quarterback controversy. It should be an interesting season with Tim Tebow and the crazy environment that comes with being a New York Jet. Those post game press conferences with the over the top head coach Rex Ryan should be great for the new york media. Good Luck Tim you are in for a very interesting ride.
Tim Tebow’s run in Denver has been like an awful teenage relationship. The Bronco’s wined him and dined him. They told him he was beautiful and unique…that HE was special. They said they loved him and nobody else’s opinion mattered. And Timmy believed them.
Tim now knows the consequences of such foolish love. He thought he had given the Broncos everything that he could give. Fourth quarter comebacks, a division championship, a first round playoff win, he had the first three bases covered. I mean what else did they want from him? To go all the way?!? (I’m pretty sure he claims abstinence.)
So Tebow’s refusal to give it all up in one season has got Denver looking for someone a little older, a little wiser, a little more…experienced. Maybe someone who has “done it” before. And then it happened, Peyton Manning and the Colts ended their long-term relationship.
…Peyton had noticed Denver before, but never really saw them as an attractive choice. Sure, they had some bright spots, but nothing extraordinary. But there was something different in Denver, something a little more..giving. Peyton couldn’t resist.
Now Tim Tebow is out in the cold, abandoned and alone. His day of redemption lies within his upcoming choices. Should he choose to stay in Denver, the pain will only linger. Should he choose to move on, he will have the opportunity to repay those who have treated him with such little confidence, consideration and care.
Peyton Manning called John Elway this morning with some good news for Denver. Manning announced that he was looking forward to playing for the Broncos and told the other teams interested in him that he will be joining Denver.
All of this talk about where will Peyton Manning play and will he come to Kansas City has me thinking…Kansas City really doesn’t want Manning. Let Denver and Arizona fight it out for Peyton, Kansas City Chiefs are much better off staying put and staying far away from all this Manning-hoopla. Doesn’t everyone remember how miserable it was getting out in the cold to Arrowhead during January in the 90s?? Nobody really wants that again do they?
I will give you 5 reasons why the Chiefs should stay far away from Peyton.
5. More Family Time
Peyton Manning becoming a Chief means the Chiefs would probably go deep into the playoffs taking up much of your January and possibly even leaking into your February!! Signing him would mean more alone time in your man cave or with rowdy buddies drinking beers. Without Manning you can spend more time upstairs with your wife and mother in law and they can discuss with you their thoughts on home improvements.
Manning going elsewhere means you won’t have to put your Matt Cassel jersey in your next garage sale. It also means you won’t be dropping 100 bones on the red Peyton Manning jersey. You also won’t have to worry about getting a Manning jersey for Christmas now and you can instead continue to keep getting your Axe Box Set from Santa. You know, that spray that smells like an Old Spice queef. Nothing says ” I don’t have enough money for cologne” than Axe body spray.
3.Looking at Denver differently
The Denver Broncos are the front runner to sign Peyton. A 95% lock according to Bronco insiders. Manning going to Denver instead of the Chiefs means you won’t have to put up with anymore Tebow talk. Wouldn’t that be great? Instead all you will hear about the Denver Broncos is how they have now become the favorite to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl now that they signed #18.
2.The NFL Draft
Bringing in Manning will insure multiple seasons of 10+ wins, which in turn would mean much lower draft picks. That means the Chiefs will no longer be able to get their hands on budding stars such as Tyson Jackson, Ryan Sims and Glen Dorsey. With Peyton as a Chief you will be drafting in the late 20′s. Coincidentally, all of those players would still be available then as well.
The Chiefs just franchised Dwayne Bowe, that means contract negotiations will be going on up until next season. Do you have any idea how hard it will be to sign Dwayne Bowe after a season with Peyton. Bowe had nearly 1,200 yards and 15 touchdowns just two seasons ago with Matt Freakin’ Cassel at quarterback. Can you imagine the type of numbers Bowe would put up with a Hall of Famer at QB? You’re talking 1,500 yards and 20 touches. That would blow up Bowe’s stock, then the Chiefs would have to use all that extra salary cap money on signing Bowe.
I’m not the type of person that likes to talk about religion. I keep my religion to myself and make it a note that I do not start conversations about religion, politics, or soccer. Those types of conversations never end well or leave a person in a daze. After seeing Tim Tebow pull of another miracle against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the first round of the playoffs and listening to the fans reactions to a guy that has little quarterback abilities, yet pulls off the impossible, I have decided that there is only one possible explanation to all of this insanity. Tim Tebow might be the Antichrist. Now you’re thinking I’m crazy, but the “good book” speaks of signs of the Antichrist and I have found a relationship between those signs and Tim Tebow. I’ve listed 11 of them below.
1. He is different from the other kings [Daniel 7:24]
This is an easy one. The “King” in Denver was John Elway. Elway could throw the ball. Tebow can’t! Try to argue that one.
2. He will speak boastfully [Daniel 7:8; Rev 13:5]
Tebow’s “The Promise” speech has been immortalized and placed on a plaque the University of Florida and in everyone’s heads that watch ESPN. Here are his words below.
September 27, 2008 -
I just want to say one thing.
To the fans and everybody in Gator Nation, I’m sorry, extremely sorry.
I promise you one thing, a lot of good will come out of this.
You will never see any player in the entire country play as hard as I will play the rest of the season, and you will never see someone push the rest of the team as hard as I will push everybody the rest of the season, and you will never see a team play harder that we will the rest of the season.
- Tim Tebow
3. He will oppress the saints and be successful for 3 ½ years [Daniel 7:25; Rev 13:7]
It’s possible that he could see the Saints in the Super Bowl. If he leads them to victory over Drew Brees, then I know I will crap my pants and go into hiding from Tim Tebow.
4. He will try to change the calendar, perhaps to define a new era, related to himself [Daniel 7:25]
Ummmm, people keep referring to this as Tebow Time, thus defining a new era. Not even sure the Mayans could stop this guy.
5. He will not answer to a higher earthly authority; “He will do as he pleases”[Daniel 11:36]
John Elway stated that he didn’t think Tim Tebow was the future Quarterback. Tim Tebow said he doesn’t listen to that and only will only focus on things only he can control. He basically said, “Screw you John Elway!”
6. He will have “no regard for the desire of women”: He will either be asexual or homosexual [Dan 11:37]
Tim Tebow’s not married and claims he is a virgin. Imagine the wool that guy could pull. Yet he claims he isn’t interested at the moment. A good person….or yet another sign of the Antichrist?
7. His arrival on the world scene will be accompanied by miracles, signs and wonders [2 Thess 2:9]
Have you seen they way he throws a ball, his poor completion percentage, and inability to hold onto the ball? Yet he continues to win in miraculous fashion. This is kinda scary.
8. He will be worshipped by many people [Rev. 13:8]
Witness the idiots across the world that thinks he is the answer. He is all over the media and his fans worship him. They continue to think that he will take Denver to the Promiseland. Hell, ESPN is basically Tebow 24/7.
9. He will hate a nation that initially will have some control over his kingdom, but he will destroy this nation [Rev 17:16-18]
Tim Tebow has learned to hate Chiefs Nation; however, Kansas City controlled Tim Tebow and Denver at the end of the season, but Denver backed into the playoffs, destroying the hopes and dreams of Chiefs Nation.
10. He will appear to survive a fatal injury [Rev. 13:3; 17:8]
This is yet to be seen, but I’m going to predict this one. In the first quarter, Tebow runs on second and three and Ray Lewis or James Harrison decapitate him. They wheel his lifeless body out of the stadium. As Denver enters the fourth quarter down by 6, the home tunnel leading into the stadium begins to glow and Tim Tebow rides in on a white stallion to lead the Broncos on an 80 yard touchdown drive to win the game. If this happens, then Tim Tebow is definitely the Antichrist and I am Nostradamus.
11. His name will be related to the number six hundred and sixty six—but not necessarily in an obvious fashion [Rev 13:17-18].
Check out Tim Tebows stats: This year he rushed for 660 yards (which rumor has it they changed from 666 to avoid controversy), he had 6 interceptions, 6 rushing touchdowns, and a 6 yard passing average. I’m actually quite disturbed over this.
So there you have it. When people ask why I dislike Tim Tebow, I will refer them to this article and the theory behind Tebow ending the world. Or I will tell them that I’m a Chiefs fan and disliked John Elway just as much.
Early in the season, when Tim Tebow was thrilling Denver fans with sub-par “winning” performances, John Elway was asked if he thought the Broncos were any closer to feeling that they had the quarterback of the future on the team. Elway simply answered,“No.” At that time Elway’s answer wasn’t the popular belief in Mile High country. It would be insane for a person to think that after the Denver Broncos snuck into the playoffs that John Elway would change his tune. The only question is when will Denver fans and Tebow supporters finally come to their senses and realize that the train has derailed?
Here is the thing about Tebow. Sure…the kid can run. He can run so good that he looks to the run more often than he looks to his receivers. If the pocket collapses just a bit, then it’s off to the races. This approach barely worked good enough to win the first several games he started; however, teams have realized that he looks to run and have made the necessary adjustments. Have you ever noticed that most of the balls Tebow throws look like lame ducks, almost as if they flew off the kicking tee? Tebow does not throw a clean ball, which adds to his problems. What isn’t underthrown normally floats, allowing defenders to react. I won’t even get into his miserable 47.3% completion rate, his 16 turnovers versus 12 touchdowns, or his unconventional throwing style that basically ended his career before it started.
When it comes down to it, Tim Tebow is a fad. He’s kind of like a pair of parachute pants. Eventually, people will realize that the team needs more incomplete passes like parachute pants need another zipper and like parachute pants, 10 years down the road you will see a handful of Denver fans wearing his jersey still waiting for the “Messiah” to take them to the promise land. For now, enjoy his last start, because if John Elway has anything to do with it, Tebow will return to the back-up position. Keep in mind that it is highly possible that if Tebow holds on to the ball too long against the Steelers, James Harrison might end his career permanently.
It was a magical story, but Tim Tebow’s carpet ride is over. In his last three games, all losses, he has had a passer rating of 40.7 and has turned the ball over at an alarming rate. Originally, Tebow defenders were able to say that he just won games. There were some very specific reasons that this was true; however, against New England, Buffalo and Kansas City, the things that Tebow did effectively weren’t happening.
At this point in his career Tebow needs to take care of the ball and lead an effective ground game to win. During the Bronco’s win streak, he only turned the ball over one time in the blowout with the Lions. However, in the losses, he has been a turnover machine. Without efficent football, John Fox and the Denver offense couldn’t rely on the run game. Denver gashed New England for over 150 rushing yards in the first quarter but were forced away from it due to a deficit created by turnovers.
Tebow’s arm just isn’t quite where it needs to be. While I personally believe he will make it as an NFL quarterback, it is not yet his time. He doesn’t have the receivers that are right for his style. Demariyus Thomas has adjusted nicely but is still dropping wide open touchdowns. Eric Decker is just totally unable to gain seperation on 90% of his routes. Facing the Steelers with this personnel and attempting to run it down their throats isn’t going to work.
The Steelers are the number one total defense, according to statistics compiled by NFL.com. San Fran’s defense is probably overall more stout, but Pitt is still…well…themselves. This is a team that has always beem built on defense. However, they still have quite the offense. With Rashard Mendenhall out, Issac Redman and Jon Clay will share the duties. Redman has always performed serviceably when need and will do so against a defense that has struggled mightily since Von Millers hand injury.
This hand injury is going to give Ben Rothlisberger and his depleted O-line some help. Rothlisberger has always taken alot of sacks but rose this year to 44 sacks and 77 quarterback hits. Luckily for him, Von Miller has not been the same rusher since he injured his hand and has to play with it taped. Miller leads the club in QB pressures and his disturbing presence has been missed against pass heavy attacks. If the trend continues, and it should, Mike Wallace and Antonio Brown should have a field day.
Look, I don’t want the kid to fail. Regardless of what he stands for, he is hardworking and truly nice. More tham can be said of most NFL players. However, this weekend against Pittsburgh, Tebow’s clock is going to strike midnight.
I have been hurt by other Chiefs quarterbacks before. Im not sure I’m ready to get into a relationship with you. You did take some steps yesterday that may have laid the groundwork for a relationship. Let’s take it slow; I am willing to let you put your hands down my pants if you can play that good the next two weeks.
Doug, I’m interested but let’s take it slow
Dear Kansas City Chiefs,
Once again you guys show up when you are not expected to and then vanish when you should be there. I need mood stabilizers to watch a season of Chiefs football. Let’s see if you guys can win out and finish at .500 for the season. If you play the next two games like you did yesterday it can happen.
Doug, the taking a healthy dose of Prozac in preparation for the next two weeks.
Dear Sam Hurd,
When the Bears cut you was it into zips, teeners or 8 balls. Did they get your keys? Maybe the Bears lost because they weren’t all jacked up on your product. Have fun in an Illinois Correctional Facility.
Doug, The guy that has watched enough reality shows to know not to sell drugs.
I still hate you, because you play for the Broncos. It appears the New England Patriots are the Pontius Pilot of the NFL. “For you will know my name is Tom Brady when I lay 41 points upon thee” Playoffs 3:16. Please know I will become the biggest Bills fan this week in hopes that they can do the same thing. The bad part is the Patriots defense is horrible this year and they got you.
Doug, the guy that knew when you faced the right defense you would go down.
Dear Philadelphia Eagles,
Good Morning!! Nice of you guys to show up finally this year. However the party is almost over and you missed the fun. Where were you guys week 1 through 12? At either route, if you win out you still have a chance and may save Andy Reid’s job.
Doug, the guy the picked you for the Super Bowl
Dear Joe Flacco,
What’s up with the moustache bro? I can’t tell if you were about to rock out in a band, drive off in a Camaro or commit a sex crime. The horrible thing is probably the reason that you and the Ravens got rolled on the road last night. You look like a sexual predator and Ray Lewis looked like a cold blooded killer….wait I forgot he is.
Doug, the guy currently hiding from Ray Lewis
Dear Ryan Braun,
So you failed a drug test? You claim it was due to a medication you were taking for a STD. I’m not too sure which way to go on that one. I would almost the world know I was juicing up rather than playing with a rotten bat…if you catch me drip…I mean drift. Best of luck though.
Doug, the guy that doesn’t play in dirty ballparks.
Dear KC Sports Ninja Readers,
My computer deleted my Fixing The Chiefs Part 3 article, I promise that I will get it done this week.
Doug, the guy that used the dog ate my homework excuse in school.
Dear Kansas City,
I will be performing at Stanford and Son’s on Tuesday Night and The IMPROV on Weds Night. As my Christmas gift to you I am offering free tickets to both shows. You can get them by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org or meeting me in front of the box office at Stanfords Tuesday Night at 7:30pm. If you want to go to the IMPROV show you can call 816.759.5233 and tell them you want to see Doug Cheatham and you are in for free.
Doug, the guy that wants you to come see him do hardcore comedy
Well, it seems like The Tebow Show hit a roadblock in the form of the New England Patriots. God smites the wicked, so he had to take a trip to that shithole we like to call Oakland to bend the Raiders over his heavenly knee and whoop their little bad asses for years of picking on people with stupid penalties (I know, I know…”What about the Detroit Punks Lions?” you might ask. God had to make a tough choice, so he chose to set the example by scolding the older brother.). And so, he wasn’t there to aid his lamb, David Tebow, as he battled the Philistines Patriots in Denver this afternoon.
With that being said, The Donkeys played admirably for a large portion of the game, demonstrating why they currently lead the AFC Worst West. Unfortunately, self-inflicted wounds allowed the Patriots to do what they do best: capitalize off the opposing teams’ mistakes. It was, in my opinion, a highly entertaining (but fairly sloppy) game. Tebow and the Donkeys actually showed me something in what turned out to be a weird day in the NFL (the Packers lose to the lowly Chi(e)fs, the Colts get their first win, and the Eagles actually looked like a football team).
I originally intended for this article to be a rant about the inordinate amount of attention that has been paid to America’s new “Golden Boy”, one Timothy Richard Tebow. However, I would be lying if I said that I wasn’t fairly impressed with the poise he demonstrated and the progress he’s seemed to have made over the last several weeks. While I’m not enamored with his throwing motion (it reminds me a bit of Byron Leftwich’s elongated throwing motion, but with less zip), he made several impressive throws and (for parts of the game) displayed an accuracy that I didn’t think he was capable of displaying. His completion percentage needs to improve but I’m starting to believe that, if he’s coached up, he might be able to do that. Denver, you may have found your QB of the future.
The division is by no means decided, and things should be interesting over the course of the next two weeks. In the meantime: America 42, Jesus Tebow Christ of and the Latter Day Saints 23. The battle rages on…
As Sunday rolls around for Week 15 in the NFL, who would believe that Aaron Rodgers and his undefeated Packers would not be the main topic of discussion? Is it because they have won the majority of their games this year before halftime has started? No, one man and his theatrical performances on the football field have stolen the eyes and hearts of most NFL fans. His name is Tim Tebow. The story itself is a phenomenal one. He started the season as the potential starting quarterback then was reduced to the 3rd stringer by the end of the preseason. But with Kyle Orton struggling and the fans demanding for Tebow, Brady Quinn got looked over and Tebow got his chance to shine. He has led the Denver Broncos from 1-4 to 8-5 with dramatic last minute drives to win almost every game. As I sit around the TV on Sundays, everyone at my house demands for the Denver game to be turned on when there is 3 minutes left, solely for the fact that they know that something that appears impossible can be achieved by the one and only Tim Tebow. It’s like watching a live quarterback version of Rudy. Yes, the story is a remarkable one and it’s great to see a good guy like himself be successful. But am I the only one that sees the problem here? Nobody wants to watch the other 57 minutes of the Broncos games because in all honesty, they are painful. Three and outs and dreadful throws can summarize what would be seen by those that are forced to watch it. As a fan of the NFL, seeing the Spread Option offense brought to the NFL from college hurts. How did the last experiment with an offense being brought college to the NFL go? The wildcat formation lasted about a year until defenses finally figured out how to stop it. The same exact thing will happen with Tim Tebow. With average speed and below average arm strength and accuracy, the Mile High Messiah better enjoy the spotlight while he has it. Yes, the last minutes of the games shock every fan even when we deep down know how it’s going to end. But everyone has overlooked the outstanding performance of the Broncos Defense. They have kept the Broncos in every game and if they hadn’t, talks might start to circulate that Tebows’ chances of being a starting NFL quarterback next year were zero. The Tebow story almost reminds me a little of Tiger Woods in his prime. Tiger would play average golf for the first 3 rounds. Yet on the last day, he would play better golf and his opponents would melt around him purely because of his reputation for coming back in the final round. As a fan, I say enjoy it while we can as Mr. Tebow plays the New England Patriots this week. This one will be settled long before Tebow can work his magic.
