Tim Tebow receives much less than the dreaded vote of confidence from Broncos vice-president, John Elway. During John Elway’s weekly radio show on KDSP-FM, host Gary Miller asked the Elway if he was “any closer to feeling if you have your quarterback on this team?” Elway paused and answered, “No.” Elway pointed out that Tebow has to do better on third downs and improve as a passer. Tebow said, “I honestly don’t pay much attention. “I don’t try to focus on anything that doesn’t affect me personally and how I go out there every single day. I’m just going to continue to work hard and focus on what I can control.” The guys think he might care what his vice-president thinks since that guy will decide who is the team’s quarterback.

Lessons learned from Monday Night Football. Tyler Palko is NOT the one hit wonder Falco – as he could not Rock Me Amadeus! Palko might want to have another try with the Montreal Alouettes. Oh, and most importantly, the Patriots are a much better team as they rolled to a 34-3 win. The Chiefs played hard in the first half but the game quickly got away from them in the 2nd half.

Raheem Morris has the crack-pot idea that the Bucs are still playoff bound. Coach feels that his team can run the table to end the season and be 10-6 with a chance at playoffs. Coach, not everybody can run the table some teams have to lose. When your schedule has Atlanta, Dallas and Carolina twice, running away might be easier than running the table.

Jabar Gaffney has some suicidal recommendations for one of his Twitter followers. Gaffney took to Twitter after the Redskins loss to the Cowboys and did a bit of foolish venting. He failed to take Rants & Raves standard advice and “Think Before you Tweet.” After a profanity filled post he then said “3-7 ain’t a record to be proud of, I’m just proud I ain’t you get a life or kill yourself.” Oops.

In this season of giving thanks we have a nice holiday thought from Jets camp. Rex Ryan said WR, Plaxico Burress did not practice Monday and will not practice Tuesday for personal reasons. ESPN New York reported that Burress planned to spend the two days in his hometown of Virginia Beach, Va., visiting his old high school, meeting with children and handing out Thanksgiving turkeys to low-income families.
