That’s right, DYNASTY GOLD! If you’re in a dynasty league, the one must-have player from this draft is Tim Tebow. Don’t get distracted by the haters and naysayers.
Let's see Mel Kiper rip me with a football stuck in his mouth.
It’s his iconic status that has most people hoping for him to fail. And, if you’re not careful it’s easy to get carried away in the anti-Tebow sentiment. If I remember correctly, it was during
How early, is too early, when it comes to drafting the quarterback that you believe can lead you to a championship? Or, at what point would JaMarcus Russell or Tim Couch have become a draft day steal? The answer to both of these questions is quite obvious. You could never have drafted Tom Brady or Joe Montana too early and at no point would JaMarcus Russell or Tim Couch have been a draft day steal. Either way, only time will tell if Josh McDaniels' bold move was a stroke of genius or the move of a madman.
Tebow could not have landed in a better situation. Broncos coach Josh McDaniels has shown that things are going to get done his way in
Josh, you hurt my feelings. I'm going to take my league leading 26 picks and go to Chicago.
No one has more to gain or lose with the rise and fall of Tebow than McDaniels. Hence, you can bet that Tebow will be given every, and I mean every, opportunity to succeed. But, opportunity is only part of the equation as Tebow must continue to refine his game in order to succeed at the NFL level. Unlike Jay Cutler, Tebow has been more than willing to accept criticism and make adjustments. He understands that he’s not a finished product and will not be outworked or outprepared.
But, the most important factor in making Tebow dynasty gold is McDaniels’ track record as an offensive coordinator. It was McDaniels who was calling the plays during Tom Brady‘s record-setting season of 2007 when he passed for a league-record 50 touchdowns. It was McDaniels who kept his foot on the pedal as
Josh, thanks a million. I mean, thanks 63 million!
So, let the other owners in your league rip on Tebow. In fact, you should lead the attacks on Tebow’s ability to succeed as a professional. Then, with the cunning and cool of a cat burglar, select Tebow at a discount during your rookie draft.
