Tim Tebow Will Be Broncos Starter For Next Year

At least he will enter training camp in that position.

Some of his throws look pro-level. Some of his throws look amateurish.

I think some sportswriter had it right when he said Tebow doesn't yet have the ability to anticipate where the receiver is going to make his break, and where he'll be when he does; instead, he waits to actually see this happen, then throws. Pro quarterbacks don't have the time to wait to see an open receiver, most of the time.

That's something that may come with experience. But I think most quarterbacks who fail don't wind up failing on athleticism or arm-strength, but on processor speed, the ability to see the field fast enough to make quick and mostly accurate projections a second ahead into the future.

Man alive, did the Patriots demolish them. On both sides of the ball. The weak New England defense completely stymied the Broncos.

Speaking of demolishing -- I'm not rubbing this in to Wisconites' faces, just stating a fact: The Giants completely dominated Green Bay in a way I would have never have guessed, and certainly not bet. Two bad calls (and all three bad calls in the game were in favor of Green Bay) led to two Green Bay touchdowns, and one of them might have also subtracted a Giants score.

It was frustrating to watch Aaron Rodgers keep scrambling for 8-12 yards whenever he ran for the first. But of course Aaron Rodgers doesn't beat people that way. He beats people by throwing the ball to receivers down the field. As frustrating it was for me, as a Giants fan, to keep watching him pick up first downs, I did keep it in mind: I guess no one's open downfield, huh?

The Giants secondary had been weak just a year ago and in fact most of this year, right? And yet somehow -- we can't see how because they don't show us the receivers in many shots -- they were apparently covering Green Bay's fearsome receivers on most damn plays.

Two great games next Sunday. I'm surprised Vegas has New England out 8 points in front of Baltimore. I figured it would be four. They have the Niners as three point favorites, which sounds right. Wait a Minute: I misread. The "Vegas sharps" line has the Niners as 11.5 point favorites. That seems way too high to me. Did they not just see the Giants shut down the NFL's best offense?

Meanwhile, in terms of winning the Super Bowl, Vegas now has New England as a clear favorite, at 6:5. New York and the Niners are both 3 to 1 against, and the Ravens are 6 to 1 against.

Vegas really doubts the Ravens, huh?
