Will Tebow No Longer Be Manning Broncos’ Ship?

So the Tim Tebow saga continues, but not in the way many envisioned: Instead of listening to fans and pundits debate whether Tebow should the starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos, we’re all waiting to see if former Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning signs with Team Tebow—and if he does, the Broncos will send Tebow packing.

Most people, I think, wouldn’t think twice about taking Manning over Tebow, even with Manning coming off multiple major surgeries and no one sure how he’ll perform. He’s nonetheless a Hall of Famer in waiting, and odds are that’s a lot farther than Tebow will ever get as a QB.

As the saying goes, however, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, and there are few enough good quarterbacks in the NFL that some team (maybe multiple teams) will be standing by ready to bring Tebow on board. The chatter around my office—which includes a diehard Broncos fan who’s torn about potentially losing Tebow—is that the young lefty will end up in Jacksonville, which is starving for a selling point to offer its fans. I like Tebow, and wish him the best; I also (despite being a Patriots fan) like Manning, and wish him the best. Of course, Manning could still choose Arizona, or Miami, or perhaps a dark horse few people are figuring on. Anyway, here are some links to some more information regarding the ongoing Manning-Tebow sagas:

    My gut says he won’t end up in Denver, but if he does and he’s healthy, that’s a major upgrade at quarterback for the Broncos.

      HUGE upgrade. I like Tebow, but he’s not much of a QB. I think he’d make a great fullback or H-back with his size and running ability; too bad he wouldn’t convert to that position and stay in Denver.
