Irsay and the Colts front office put an end to the Miami Dolphin’s strategy to hire Mike McCoy and then trade a first round pick for Tim Tebow. When Bob Irsay cleaned house this week and made his intentions clear that he was going to use the 1st pick in the draft to draft Stanford’s Andrew Luck , the Broncos opportunity to trade three 1st round picks to the Colts for the rights to Luck went away. Miami has planned all along to bring in the offensive coordinator of the quarterback they would acquire this offseason. Tebow was their first choice and up until the last few days they planned on bringing in both McCoy and Tebow. Their second choice was the Packer’s Philbin and back-up quarterback Matt Flynn.
Once Denver learned that Andrew Luck would not be available, Tebow became the Broncos best, and only, option for the 2012 season. Although Tebow is not the type of quarterback Elway envisions leading the Broncos to a Super Bowl, he will have to give him a real shot at the job now that Luck is no longer available.
