Oh come on, "three yrs in the NFL is more than enough" is ridiculous. He sat on the bench most of his first year, part of his second, and all of his third. He's had the equivalent of only one full season as a starting QB and even that has been spread over three years with two different teams. Not exactly "more than enough" to judge what he might do if a team committed to him as their starting QB from day one and designed an offense that took advantage of his abilities.
I will say that I'm by no means sure that TT could be a good QB even if that were done. I look at QBs who have games similar to TT in terms of being dual threats, e.g. Russell Wilson and Colin Kaepernik (sp?), and it's obvious they're far better passing QBs than TT was with the Broncos. However, I don't think TT can be dismissed on the ground that his three years in the NFL has been "more than enough" to judge him.
