    Denver PostOnce Manning officially signs with the Broncos, attention will turn to the fate of incumbent quarterback Tim Tebow. Arguably one of the biggest stories in sports history during a magical 2011 season, Tebow led what had been a horrific Broncos team to six consecutive victories and their first playoff appearance in six years. He then helped beat the heavily favored Pittsburgh Steelers in a first-round playoff game with an 80-yard touchdown pass to Demaryius Thomas on the first play of overtime.

    Yet, Tebow also ranked 34th in pass percentage in a league in which there are only 32 starting quarterbacks. Elway has long stated that a team cannot win a Super Bowl without having a vaunted passing attack. The last nine Super Bowls have been won by arguably the league's six best quarterbacks: Tom Brady (twice), Ben Roethlisberger (twice), Manning, his younger brother Eli Manning (twice), Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers.

    It's possible the Broncos could keep Tebow and use him in goal-line packages. Or the Broncos could conclude there's not a big enough tent to handle the circus of both Tebow and Manning. In that case, the Broncos would attempt to trade Tebow before the late-April draft.


    So with Manning pushing Tebow out of the Rocky Mountains, where will he land? I'm looking at you, Jacksonville...

    If I had a vote, I would keep him in Denver and let him learn everything he possibly could from Manning. I'd be surprised if Manning lasted 5 more years... would be a great opportunity to groom Tebow properly for the job. Just my $.02.

    I hope this is what happens. I truly believe Tim Tebow will have the last laugh on all of this. He has proved the naysayers wrong throughout his career, and at 24 years old he has ample time to improve and grow. That being said, what I would really love to see happen is that Tebow gets traded to another team like Jacksonville where he is loved and will be appreciated, and that they KICK SOME MANNING BRONCO ASS.

    Look for him to be traded to the Miami Dolphins. They need a QB and since Alex Smith will probably be staying with SF and Flynn signed with Seattle Miami will look to get TT, if just to put butts in the stadium.

    Not to mention that Tim Tebow does have this uncanny ability to WIN games.

    Tim Tebow is an AVERAGE quarterback. Yeah, he went to the playoffs but when it came down to beating the good teams, he couldn't do it.

    Must not have prayed hard enough.

    Beat "The Good Teams"? He beat the Pittsburgh Steelers...in the playoffs! All teams lose eventually unless they win The Super Bowl. Let's not forget that Tim Tebow is only 24 years old, and that was his first starting season at quarterback. The fact that he got them in to the playoffs is something that shouldn't be minimized.

    The Broncos should keep Tebow. He's got the support of his team and that's important. If he leaves, they're left with Quinn as the 2nd stringer, and I'm not sure that's what they'd want. If the Broncos were smart, no matter what the doctors have said about Manning, they would keep TT almost for insurance purposes. My gut says Manning won't last more than the preseason and 3 regular season games.

    1. Tim Tebow does have an uncanny ability to win games; however, the Broncos beat the Steelers in the playoffs when Rothlesburger had a high ankle sprain. So take that victory with a grain of salt. The Broncos barely made it into the playoffs in an incredibly weak division with an 8-8 record. They went on to lose 45-10 to the Patriots, who weren't known for playing great defense last year.

    2. Tebow is still playing on his rookie contract and would need to be resigned before he'll get a chance at the starting job if Peyton is healthy, which we should assume he is or the Broncos wouldn't have signed him. So you're not going to see Tebow learn at Manning's feet for five years just like you didn't see Andrew Luck doing it.

    3. The Broncos don't have the WR threat they're going to need to go deep in the playoffs and win a Super Bowl. Eric Decker is definitely hot but he's not a #1 WR and Demaryius Thomas isn't the answer at #2. They can't tie up a ton of cap room on Tebow with his 47.3 passing accuracy.

    So.....Tim Tebow is available for a third round pick. Enjoy Miami.

    No reason to be down on the Broncos. Tebow might be a great guy with a great attitude, but football is a business that goes by numbers. In the long run they go by what they think is best for the team versus the current crowd favorite.

    Seriously- otherwise they would have put out a calendar about now. icon_evil.gif In regards to Tebow, he's average but his stats at Florida (remember why he became a sensation in the first place. Otherwise I was lied to in high school, which I shouldn't be surprised at either.) and Denver have shown that he has potential.

    Just goes to show you. Sports are a BUSINESS!! Owners are only thinking about a couple of things. So when players like Lebron James make their own decisions, they're doing what's best for them and their future (Still LOVE Lebron for leaving Cleveland). Tebow was talk of the season last year. And made LOTS of money for the Bronco Organization. From merchandise with his name/face on it, ticket sales, playoff performance etc. And now he's out!!! Organizations are going to do what is best for them. Players need to have the same business mindset.

    dolphins signed chad henne to an extension, highly unlikely he'll end up in miami.

    his ONLY hope is jacksonville if they don't bite, he'll probably be without a job.

    tebow maniacs are ridiculous--most of them don't understand football. As an offensive coordinator next to nobody is going to throw out their playbook/risk their EMPLOYMENT for a guy that doesn't play well for 94% of the game (3 full quarters and 75% of the last quarter for you people out there that struggle with math :winkicon_smile.gif

    and what ANYONE did in college is irrelevant to what you do in the nfl. There are too many examples from all positions of players who were STUDS in college but couldn't do jack come NFL.

    As I stated previously, I don't understand why Tebow couldn't stay a Bronco, as the backup. That's what his position was last year to Orton, so how is that any different with Peyton, other than financials?

    because it'll be a circus. tebow maniacs will boo and chant for him to play if and when peyton throws one pick or even a pick six. Look what happened to orton? Tebow got the starting job because of a popularity contest. He didn't do anything to 'win' his starting job it was given to him because fans pressured Fox and ownership. You think Peyton or anybody else wants to deal with that media circus?

    Not sure that's correct. The chants came into play because of the Broncos' losing record and Orton's sub-par showing. If the Broncos and Orton had done better when Orton was starter, there would have been no chant for Tebow. Yes, Tebow did win the starting job over Quinn at that time, but that's irrelevant in discussing the relationship that would occur between Manning and Tebow.

    I think if there's going to be any circus, it would surround the fact that those that become Tebow believers might feel a direct slight to Tim after he resurrected their season. But, again, that would quickly go away with a winning record by Peyton.

    It's different in the same way that Obama is not going to go back to the Illinois Senate after serving as President, and Meryl Streep is not going to start doing daytime soap operas after winning her 3rd Oscar.

    Tebow's a starting quarterback and -- unlike many other starting quarterbacks -- one with an actual playoff win. He's not going to go back to the bench, for obvious reasons.

    true good points but i figured you would have mentioned when Tebow was bumped down to 4th string before the season started and the maniacs went crazy. To be honest, out of all 3, they're all below average QBs but orton was the best out of the 3. He didn't win the starting spot--Orton lost it. Both Orton AND Quinn did better than tebow in the offseason AND training camp. Even when they would practice Tebow still couldn't throw the ball...and they see him everyday yet maniacs still kept throwing out there, "he's a great college player he deserves it yada yada yada"

    and the whole "resurrected their season" the problem with that is there are THREE squads that win the game--not 1 person. Maniacs, especially Bayless, carried on like he hiked the ball to himself, threw a 80yd pass, caught it, and ran to the endzone for the TD. He didn't do it all by his lonesome, his defense kept the offense in the game to allow them to even get close. Chargers - 13 pts...Bears...10pts... your defense won that game--not the qb.
