The Mistake that was Tim Tebow

In the Mile High City of Denver, a controversy is brewing. The Denver Broncos have a Quarterback controversy. It's filled with many twist and problems that the organization has to deal with.
First off, the team is under new Management with John Elway, now in the front office. They brought in a new head coach and a new staff. The problem starts with the roster they inherited. The former coach Josh McDaniel tore apart a roster that may have been a player or two from competing with the AFC for championship status. The main piece he traded away, was franchise quarterback Jay Cutler. In effect that caused a trickle down effect. Peyton Hillis and Tony Sheffler where also traded away. These players are now excelling in other places for their respective teams. A few other guys were cut and let go or traded. But another one of those guys were Brandon Marshall.
Marshall, was there during the shooting and killing of then teammate Derrant Williams. Since then, he was not the same with the city. His frustration with the trading of his quarterback coupled with the murder of Williams led him to be traded. The offense was a mess.
Two of the guys brought in from these trades were quarterback, Kyle Orton and Brady Quinn. Then drafted in a year later was, Tim Tebow. Despite the critics saying he was not NFL ready or good enough to play in the NFL. Josh McDaniels made more moves to select him in the first round. As a highly decorated college player and great personality. Tebow became a popular player before even playing.
It did not make sense though. With Orton and Quinn already on the roster. Why bring him in? As a second or third rounder, the pressure of playing him might not be as strong. It was his first round status that created the controversy. After the firing of Josh Mcdaniels. His project QB was left behind on the roster.
So this team has under preformed and has been horrid. In shambles after what Josh McDaniels did his best to destroy that roster. So Tebow is now given his chance. But he does not have the team to support him. So he will continue to look bad. The sad Part is, even though Kyle Orton was not getting the wins as a starter. The numbers were much better as well as the offense with him playing. The Tebow project is also going to have to deal with the Media. The Media is also talking about his playing mechanics. Decision making, and knowledge of the offense. As he is only with a few starts under his belt. The jury is still out. Maybe one day he will be a good quarterback. I feel by that time. The Broncos will no longer want him. The Mile high city is a rich traditional team, with the shadow of a legend in John Elway, in the front office. They want wins and excitement to begin soon. I don't think Tebow can provide that at this time. The problem is. If they don't ride it out with Tebow, are they willing to start all over again. That is a possibility. But the truth is, Tebow is not the problem, but he is not the answer either.

It's been a while!

It's been a while since I've logged on and written. Many things have happened. Football season is almost over. Basketball season is at the half way point. With all of life's up and downs, everything is normal. I have my health and have to be thankful for all that I do have. I am planning to make this 2011, the most positive year ever. I have done many things in my life. I have experienced coming in touch with Christ. I have experienced the birth of my daughter. I have traveled all across this great nation. I have been in a situation where I have slept on a street. I also have slept in a high class luxurious hotel. I have lived and experienced New York City, and have walked and enjoyed the night lights of Vegas. I have been to Hawaii, and enjoyed the ocean and waves of the pacific. As well as ride a submarine there and enjoy the beauty of the underwater world. I have been to many arena's and inside many stadiums. Played on many fields and experienced the roar of a crowd. Yet, I feel very driven to make this year the best I have ever had. I want to make my business a huge success. I want to have a smile on my face from enjoying the simple pleasures of life. Enjoying my cooking. Watching television. Sunsets and sun rises. I will start to get back to my work-outs. To enjoy my music loud. The year has just begun. I want to inspire you to do the same. Take control of the things in life that you can control. Make positive strides. If you can learn to enjoy yourself and all the small things around you that make your life special. You will have a much easier time finding your way to happiness, even when the larger problems come. Life is laced with experiences. Places you have been, fun you have had. Joy in a certain time or place. But life is not made up of those things. But what you do on a daily basis. Enjoy those small things and small miracles that are in your life. The smile of your children. The smell of fresh rain. Your health and wisdom. The feel of the sun on your face. You will see that this will make your life a great adventure everyday. God Bless and make this year a special year!!!

for 2011 inspire!

Inspiration in 2011
When we are going through our usual daily activities, at times we come across something that inspires. It can be as simple as a sound, a picture, a song, a persons actions. Maybe hearing a story being told about a person going against an incedible amount of odds, still achieving an unforseen goal. In my life I have found that because of all that I have been through, it made me have a high level of will power and determination. I found myself in the depths of poverty and stripped from all reason of hope. That in itself was what made me fight and say, I cannot give up. What value and worth is it to fight, and fight, to then give up? In my soul and spirit, I always felt the guidence of God to press forward. As an Army moving forward, at times there are casualties and fatalities but they unite even stronger and forge ahead to victory. In football, a running back collides with a linebacker at the goal line. The one that has the will power and more conviction to win, forges ahead. People who are watching this battle on the field, get inspired. Watching video coverage of September 11th. Looking at how the country united and bonded, it's an inspiration. All negative thoughts on race and creed were gone. All negative ideas about us as a nation were too gone. Just look into the eyes of a smiling child and you can see inspiration. It comes when all negative thoughts and actions are gone. Those who are inspired to do wrong and evil are not inspired, just conspiring to do wrong. Inspiration comes in all shapes and forms and it takes the effect, of changing, if even for a moment. Those that see and hear of it to become inspired. So as the year moves on, there will be much to achieve and goals to accomplish. Be sure to keep all the spirits of all around us high, by you yourself inspiring and being an inspiration.
