"I had a great relationship with Coach Fox throughout the entire draft process and got to know him quite a bit," Tebow said shortly after the hiring of Fox was announced Thursday. "I'm very excited for him to be my head coach, and I'm looking forward to working with him.
"I had dinner with the young man in Gainesville during the evaluation process, and I know he'll do whatever it takes to be a great player," Fox said Wednesday. "He's got a lot of the intangibles I look for. Where that goes it's hard to predict. He's in the developmental stage for sure. But I think he has the makings to be as good as he wants to be."
As Elway has put it: "What I see is, (Tebow is) very raw when it comes down to drops, he's very raw when it comes down to anticipation. He's very raw when it comes down to anticipating throws. Those are the things that he has to get a lot better at. He's got the intangibles. He's going to make the plays that you can't coach. But he's got to be able to, for us to win a championship, he's got to win it from within the pocket."
And from Elways's twitter :
To clarify my thoughts on Tim Tebow... I think he's a very good football player, and if anyone can turn themselves into a great QB, Tim can.
Myself and our entire organization think very highly of him. We are pleased with his first year as a Bronco.
Any speculation that the Denver Broncos are considering moving Tim is completely false.
It's either a whole lot of backpedaling or there was a misunderstanding, either way sounds like Denver is not moving Tebow.
For a guy in Denver who has said he is in the know about the Broncos you certainly haven't been paying attention to what they have been doing/saying over the last week (Elways twitter comments were from the 8th) or what Fox said to the media upon his hire.
this up now ?
