He's an instant draw at the box office, that's just a fact.

And he did manage to win some games last year too.

good for peyton, and i'm glad we got rgiii weeks ago (or so it seems) and don't really have to worry about peyton or the craptastic QB market beyond peyton manning.

Re: Peyton Manning Chooses the Broncos

Tebow liked to compare the NFL to the SEC however playing in the AFC West last year was kind of like playing in the ACC. I suppose he could find success in the AFC East where the Patriots are looking like the only real playoff team. AFC South though would probably be a better fit as that division is up for grabs for the first time since the early 2000's.

Jags with their running game and large investments draft wise on the defensive side of the ball would be an ideal fit but the GM wants nothing to do with Tebow.

Short term. Yes. Long term. No.


Please. His team won games. There is a reason Denver was looking at every direction at QB this off-season. He sucks.

Jacksonville could obviously use a boost in ticket sales as well.
Plus the Dolphins don't have any receivers that will demand the ball. They could run the spread option with little problem.

I thought the owner loved TT and has said he would have drafted him if he owned the team at the time.

When you're playing to half empty stadiums, all that matters is the short term.

As a pure business decision, Tebow makes too much sense for teams like the Dolphins and Jags.

Gene Smith is a Gabbert-hugger. If Kahn wants to override him, he can, but he first has to sold on getting Tebow.

Yeah i thought that too. And the Jags owner is probably the smartest business guy in the NFL. Right now there are 2 ways to sell tickets in Jacksonville; become a top 7 team, or sign Tebow.

Sure the owner loves him. Gene Smith the General Manager, not much of a fan which I kind of understand. Tebow appears to have a very limited ceiling and once you get him in Jacksonville it will be virtually impossible to get him out.

Then why did we bash Snyder for doing the exact same thing? Short terms answers.

We are not in dire financial straits such that we are forced to care only about the short term.

Exactly.

Tebow's impact especially for a small market team like the Jags would be huge.

Re: Peyton Manning Chooses the Broncos

Can we now agree that most 'insiders' are just throwing darts at the wall with their information? Prior to his release the top 4 teams rumored with 'mutual interest' for Manning were Washington, Miami, NY Jets and Arizona. As it comes to pass, he had no interest in Washington or NY, some interest in Arizona and merely a passing interest in Miami. Nobody had Denver on the radar and few had SF as a legitimate contender.

I think a lot of people kept mentioning SF and Houston as teams that made sense from the get go. Denver was probably not on the radar, but everyone knew that Elway did not want to make a long term commitment to Mile High Jesus.

I am sure it is hard to predict these things, either that or maybe there was a genuine interest by Manning until he or his people did research on these teams. Plus, I am sure teams that were not desperate for a QB stay put and see what the initial onslaught of bids for Manning was going to look like.
