I'm not a sports talk show guy...too much talk rarely any thoughtfullness, but in the link above Skip has it right. TT will be a winner in the NFL (like any SEC football fan ever doubted that) but it may not be in Denver. Fox and Elway just can't believe what this guy (TT) and his fans are forcing them to do. First they won't play him. Then when they play him they don't modify the offense. Then they begin to modify the offense and the Broncos for the first time in several years are interesting and more importantly they beat bad teams. On the road. In hostile enviornments. In places where Denver rarely wins even when Denver is good (and I'm talking to you John Elway).
Lee Corso years ago said, "If I ever were a pro coach I would run the option in the red zone. It will work. We would score every time.
I always thought Lee right about that. Now, because of who he is and what he represents TT is forcing the issue and we are going to find out if Lee was right and if a college spread hurry up with a running QB can succeed in the NFL and in Denver.
So far it has worked on the field and off as TT becomes the talk of the NFL. When the Broncos beat the Jets Thursday night heads will explode: How can a guy who can't pass, was a virgin until he married, always puts his Lord and Savior first and is a dog gone evangelical Christian lead a team to victory over Ryan's NEW YORK JETS. I suspect the story line will be : Denver must be pretty good, too bad they don't have a real QB.
