Terrell Davis is one of the best Denver Broncos players of all-time, one of only a handful of players to ever rush for over 2,000+ yards in a single season. Davis helped bring the Broncos two Super Bowls, so you have to think he knows a lot about the game and you have to respect his opinion when he says it’s time for Tebow to be the man.
“Yeah, he (Tebow) should be the guy right now,” Davis told the NFL Network. “We’ve seen Kyle Orton play. He’s probably maxed out on his talent. He’s a good quarterback, but ya know I think Tim brings something a little special to the table. Obviously he’s an athletic quarterback. He’s exciting to watch. He gives the Broncos the best chance to win right now. And I’m saying that.”
Davis not only likes Tim’s physical skill set, but also the intangibles he brings to the table. Something Kyle Orton lacks.
“When Tim came out of college, I was one of the skeptics who thought his game didn’t translate well to the NFL game,” Davis said. “But he has intangibles that you just can’t buy. He’s a winner. And watching him last year, the last three games he did play, you know, he just finds a way to get the job done. When he does that, he just elevates everybody’s game around him and so, yeah, I became a fan.”
In fact, Tebow’s ability to get teammates to play harder prompted the Broncos legend Davis to compare the QB to another legendary athlete.
“You know it’s like the Michael Jordan effect,” Davis said. “When Michael plays, how do(es) everybody else around you play? Forget how Tim is playing. He wasn’t great all the time. But when you see everybody else around him and how he motivated everybody else to play well, that’s the true sign of a champion, the true sign of a winner.”
