John Elway, the NFL Hall of Famer/Denver Broncos superhero/noted tapper of the Rockies, gave an interview to FanHouse. He talks about the current Broncos squad, his 2011 Super Bowl picks, and the HBO series Hard Knocks. Continuing the recent trend of sports greats analyzing young phenoms (see: Jordan and Barkley on LeBron James), he also weighs in on rookie Tim Tebow's promising NFL career:
There's no style points in the NFL, it's all about winning football games. He's got the ability with his intangibles to make the plays at the right time. Again, I go back to his work ethic. It's just a matter of him continuing to grow. His accuracy's got to get better and his acclimation to the NFL game is going to take some time. I believe he's got a good chance to be very successful, because he has those attributes.
He's not going to be the Dan Marino-type that's going to sit in the pocket and beat you with his arm. He can beat you with his arm -- he's also got those other attributes to be able to run the football, make the big plays, but also his leadership abilities to rub off on the other guys in that huddle and make them a better football team.
