COMMENTARY | The Denver Broncos didn’t lose the AFC Divisional Round game against Baltimore because they lack a star running back (RB), but that type of player could have won the game. Defensive breakdowns and questionable coaching decisions had more to do with Denver’s loss, but a star RB could have contributed at key times of the game to help Denver salt away the win.

Last week, former NFL general manager Ted Sundquist told Rich Cimini of ESPN New York that during his recent interview for the then-vacant New York Jets general manager post, owner Woody Johnson said that trading for quarterback Tim Tebow was something was ” forced ” on himself and team president Neil Glatt. Johnson denied that was case , but is now receiving a mulligan of sorts from former GM Mike Tannenbaum, who tells Cimini that acquiring Tebow from the Denver Broncos was his idea . “I’m disappointed it didn’t work out, just like I’m disappointed when certain draft choices don’t work out,” Tannenbaum told ESPNNewYork.com Tuesday. “We put in a lot of time and effort. We had a rationale for it. At the end of the day, it didn’t go as we had planned. “Once we met on it and talked about it, ultimately that was my decision to trade for Tim,” Tannenbaum said. The Jets traded picks in the fourth- and sixth-round of the 2012 NFL Draft for Tebow and agreed to repay the Broncos a prorated portion ($2.53 million, $1.53 million of which is due in 2013) of a salary advance that Tebow received in 2011. Tebow could not unseat Mark Sanchez from the top spot on the quarterback depth chart and was primarily used as a personal punt protector on special teams. According to official playing-time documents, Tebow logged just 73 plays on offense, 59 plays on special teams and when head coach Rex Ryan decided to bench an ineffective Sanchez for a Week 16 game with the San Diego Chargers, he named 2011 seventh-round pick Greg McElroy the starter, bypassing Tebow, who then declined to participate in “Wildcat” plays designed for him in what turned out to be a 27-17 loss.
