While NFL football is still fresh in the minds of Broncos fans, I feel it’s necessary to go on the record about the biggest non-debatable debate of the next seven months: who should be the Denver Broncos starting quarterback in 2012. For this reason, I’ve provided the following waiver.
(Insert deep-voiced, fast-talking ‘disclaimer’ voiceover talent here.)
It is the unwavering position of Denver Horse Force that Tim Tebow is the starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos. Any references, content, or opinions applied to a current or potential Broncos quarterback other than Tim Tebow shall only be viewed as roster management by Denver Horse Force, and shall in no way require unwarranted coverage from Denver Horse Force. Any discussion including Brady Quinn, Adam Weber, or any other draft-eligible or free agent quarterback will merely be interpreted by Denver Horse Force as discussion of who should be Tim Tebow’s backup.
Denver Horse Force does not recognize the legitimacy of statements or arguments declaring Tim Tebow as unfit to start for the Denver Broncos in the 2012 season. As evidenced by Tim Tebow’s ability to lead a 1-4 team to the divisional round of the 2011 AFC playoffs, there is no inherent value to statements suggesting Tim Tebow be removed from his starting quarterback role.
The terms of this waiver are binding, and will only be voided pending unforeseen injury to Tim Tebow, or definitive statements from Denver Broncos management that render them moot.
We’re going to have a lot to talk about this offseason. The development of Tebow, decisions involving running backs, receivers, and basically every position on defense not occupied by someone named Von, Elvis, or Champ are huge topics. The Denver Broncos have a lot of work to do and decisions to make, but who will start under center come September is not one of the items currently up for discussion.
