During the 2011 season, Tim Tebow, led the Denver Broncos on an improbable playoff run that cumulated with a breathtaking overtime victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
One month later, John Elway, Bronco legend turned General Manager and President of Football Operations, stunned the pro football world by signing Payton Manning and trading Tim Tebow away to the New York Jets.
Fast forward to the summer of 2013 and Tebow found himself again a man without a team.The New England Patriots became the third organization to trade or outright release the embattled signal-caller.
His detractors say he’s finished. His fans say he’s only getting started.
Gary Sapp finds himself allied with Tebow’s critics. He paints an unflattering but fair picture of a player who struggled to improve as a passer because of his poor mechanics and his inability to read NFL defenses.
The question, however, still remains. Has the NFL seen the last of the former Heisman Trophy Winner? Or did John Elway save us from Tim Tebow?
