John Fox: 'We're Finding Out About A Young Quarterback, Good, Bad Or Indifferent'

With the incessant, unending stream of coverage on Tim Tebow, Denver Broncos head coach John Fox might just be a bit annoyed at how all of it is going down. As he is recently quoted in Sam Farmer's recent LA Times article, John Fox said:

"The goofy thing is, it's almost like if he doesn't have success it will be anybody's fault but his. It's almost that kind of polarizing thing. They'll say it could be his supporting cast, or the type of plays. At the end of the day, we are what we are. We're doing everything we can to win, and we're finding out about a young quarterback, good, bad or indifferent."

Fox is frustrated not only at how the "other" attempts to define Tebow, but he does appear to be upset with the progress of Tebow, as well he should be. It also points to something larger: that we can't simply say every time, "Tebow was bad, but so was everyone else. This is just a bad team."

While that may be true, Tebow's shaky passes are his own product, his own throws are his own. Right now, we're finding out that the young quarterback is bad. Could he certainly turn it around? This might be that time when hard work doesn't pay off if the NFL talent level isn't there in the first place.
