Let's cut right to the chase so you can decide whether to jump right to the comments and begin the usual brawl or whether there's more to the Tim Tebow debate you should consider. Ready?

The Denver Broncos should be committed to the idea that Tim Tebow will be their starter in Week 1 of 2012. But the Broncos also must aggressively look for quarterback options to compete with Tebow because they must be prepared for the possibility that he'll fail. Have it both ways. The right course of action is to embrace both the pro- and anti-Tebow arguments.
