John Elway Still Doesn't Acknowledge Tim Tebow As QB Of The Future

Although Tim Tebow has helped Denver win four of  its last five games since becoming the team’s starter, Broncos executive vice president of football operations John Elway still does not acknowledge  Tebow as the team’s quarterback of the future. 

When asked today during his weekly radio appearance on 102.3 FM whether he was any closer to feeling that he had the quarterback set for his team, Elway reportedly responded, “no,” according to the Denver Post. 

"I think obviously [Tim Tebow] is making progress week in and week out,” Elway continued, “When you look at our third down numbers, those have to improve. I mean, that's the bottom line. We can't go 3-for-13 and win a world championship. Those are the type of things we have to keep improving."

Tebow helped cap off a 17-13 victory over the New York Jets on Thursday with a 95-yard drive in the closing minutes of the game, including a game-winning 20-yard touchdown run. The victory helped the Broncos improve to 5-5 on the season.

The victory also marked the second consecutive game the Broncos had won despite Tebow completing less than 10 passes in each contest. The second-year quarterback completed just nine of 20 pass attempts Thursday for a total of 104 yards. On the ground he totaled 68 yards in eight rushes.

Two weeks ago, Tebow completed just two of eight passes for a total of 69 yards. In that game he ran for 43 yards and one touchdown.
