Tim Tebow could return to Denver in new A-11 football league?

Local football fans were heartsick after the Broncos were thrashed by Seattle in this year's Super Bowl. But are they so distraught that they'd eagerly welcome Tim Tebow back to Denver?

That's a prospect being floated by folks from the A-11 Football League, which is teasing a possible Denver franchise with Tebow at the helm in an attempt to build credibility for the fledgling operation.

Could it really happen? Here are some factors to consider.

The A-11 Twitter account has been active since May 2012, and one of its earliest messages involves Tebow....

...with plenty of follow-ups, including this one from September 11:

In recent weeks, A-11's Tebow mentions have only increased in frequency, as witnessed by this NFL.com piece from February 7, in which both league founder Steve Humphries and commissioner Scott McKibben talk up Timmy, as well as synergy.

You see, A-11 has a deal with ESPN to broadcast some of its games, which will take place during the spring -- and Tebow is a newly inked ESPN commentator whose schedule during the fall college football season could presumably accommodate his on-field participation a few months earlier.

The latest? This weekend, the Denver Post's Woody Paige carried more water for the A-11, quoting McKibben as saying that while the league has named six franchises thus far, it's looking to field eight for its inaugural 2015 season -- and Denver's definitely in the running for one of the last two teams. Moreover, McKibben confirms that the A-11 has made Tebow an offer to get involved, with partial team ownership being dangled as an incentive.

What are the odds that Tebow will bite -- and potentially return to the Mile High City?

NFL teams seem to prefer 'Showboaters' and those that are prim-a-donnas to be on their teams. Those that could actually be seen as good or positive roll models tend to be downplayed or shunted to the side. The ones that act all self-important seem to be the ones that the NFL and the majority of fans want.

We could use a full back but who are we going to pick up for QB?

That depends. Is he still a virgin?

I hope he never comes back to Denver. He is the only professional player I have ever seen that is using football to push his religious goals.

He's better suited to be a smarmy televangelist or an under wear model if he can get over his "purity, I'm a virgin" complex.

As if anyone will watch another semi-pro team - how many times has this been tried?

Come back to Denver, Timmy. Without your shirt on.

@ Tedd Langowski Dude your non-use of logic is just out of this world, perhaps you should run for public office

No. Tim Tebow is the worst quarterback that I have ever had the misfortune to watch. Also, behind his awe-shucks facade is the beating heart of a divisive, highly political a-hole. I hope he stays in Florida for the duration.

If I were an idiot with a lot of money to lose, I too would start a football league.

Anxious for the new league to come to Denver. But Tebow is not a pro QB.

Tebow could not win a starting QB job on my cousin's Junior tackle squad

Yes I would love to see Tebow playing football. Not in the NFL but in this new league sure why not!

I know, it's a win-win situation for Manning....that man makes too much money for throwing his tiny balls around on the field.

Two years ago he took the Broncos to the playoff berth - the same thing Manning did. But this year Manning tok the team to the Super Bowl and lost. The Broncos need a new direction because at this rate they will not be even going back to the Super Bowl.

No. And so long as he uses religion to sell himself he only seems like a sports talk show televangelist.

No, unless they start a new minor league system.

Who cares? He is one of the worst quarterbacks in history. He couldn't lead a high school football team at this point.

If people would shut the fuck up about his love of Christianity, I'd be ok with it. Otherwise, he needs to go somewhere welcomed.

Dan Caplis got a warm tingly sensation run up his leg and doesn't know why.

That guy's a superstud! He's always welcome back here as far as I'm concerned.
