Re: Peyton Manning Chooses the Broncos

Just heard on SC. Wow. Adios, Tebowmania.

I gotta say, of the three teams that were left in the running, I thought Denver would be the odd man out for sure.

Tebowmania has been sidelined...for next season...barring any circumstances mostly beyond Manning's control, i.e injuries.

When I got to work this morning I was told the Niners were out and that the Titans had a slight edge...but I guess it was the Broncos as it turns out

Still hearing they plan to trade their 1st for Wallace (if they can agree to terms of a contract).

Wonder where Tebow goes now

Jacksonville? He could certainly fill some seats in his hometown, although they do already have Henne and Gabbert.

I'd take him here as a backup in a second, but wouldn't want to give up the picks.

Tebow would benefit from staying....but if I were guessing, his best "next destination" is Jacksonville.

Re: Peyton Manning Chooses the Broncos

I would definitely see him as a good backup candidate here from a physical standpoint. Won't happen though...can you imagine the situation that creates for whichever guy is our next starting QB?

Re: Peyton Manning Chooses the Broncos

Hmm, maybe New England might be a surprise destination...if Joshy-boy can sell his mancrush on Tebow to Belichick.

Re: Peyton Manning Chooses the Broncos

really crazy to me. When I heard Peyton was talkin to them, I was really surprised. I'm even more suprised that it's now gonna happen. I know Elway wasn't a Tebow fan, but the dude won a playoff game against one of the toughest defenses in the league that basically game planned to make him throw & beat them. And he did! I'm not saying Tebow is a sure thing as an nfl starter for the long-term, but he deserves more than this IMO. Huge risk, but really that's the case for any team taking a 36 year old coming off injury.

Re: Peyton Manning Chooses the Broncos

Wonder if Tebow ends up in Miami now...they need a QB after missing out on Flynn, Manning, and a slew of other guys. Wonder if Alex Smith stays in San Fran as well.

Re: Peyton Manning Chooses the Broncos

I guess the understanding before all this was Tebow would no longer be a Bronco if Manning signed with them. Even as a backup.

Simply because it would just be too much of a distraction to have both Manning and Tebow.

I mean maybe he goes to San Francisco Josh McDaniels I'm sure would love him in New England, but they'd have to move Hoyer (or Mallett) first

If I'm Tebow and the Broncos just flat out cut me I wonder where I'd want to play though

I'm seeing a lot of people saying Jacksonville, but I think they need to ride out another season or two under Blaine Gabbert.

I think the Dolphins almost have to go all in to try to get Tebow. With Manning not heading to San Fran, I have to assume they lose out on Alex Smith and they've already lost Flynn. I probably like Moore as much as Tebow, but I doubt he gets Miami fans excited. If they got Tebow, people would at least come out to watch him. I have to think they push hard for him.

It's been an interesting offseason so far. I definitely didn't think Peyton would go to Denver. I don't like his weapons or John Fox as his coach...at all.

Re: Peyton Manning Chooses the Broncos

I'm no doctor...but does the thin Denver air benefit Peyton (and his neck) at all?
