I don't know where your going with this... trying to bait me into Tebow > Peyton isn't going to happen.
Please answer my question. Does this move give Denver a better chance at winning than sticking with Tebow would have?

I'm not trying to bait you into sayign Tebow > Peyton or whatever.

Loyalty??? Perhaps you slept through the entire Colts/Irsay/Manning saga that played out during the past several months. It's a business. Dollars and cents. If you're seeking loyalty, get a dog.

It's better for Tebow this way anyway at least he'll get someone that wants him.

And, you addressed nothing I said that is damaging to your argument. Tebow is a business. Tebow wins games... has won games.. has won in the playoffs. And, Tebow got screwed.

If you never support the guy and get 100% behind him to see if he can develop... I mean !@#$ the guy has to win the Superbowl in his 1st season just to keep his job. It's pretty unbelievable.
dude was there for one year and you want to talk about loyalty lmao
and hes being replaced by a guy who is a goat qb who just got cut by a team he played on for 14 years

youre right though- tebow was on a team that had a small winning streak keep him forever

Tebow didn't just have neck surgery in his 14th season. And, the broncos aren't coming off a 1-15 season when they get to pick Andrew Luck. Some really ****ty arguments coming from all youz. Your going to have to do better than this.

We will never know the answer to this question. But, i'll play along. No, I think Tebow gives them the best chance at winning. I think Denver is a terrible fit for Manning, which i've already said. I think that team was on its way to being custom built for Tebow's playing style. Their receiving core isn't what Manning is used to.. they aren't great route runners in a domed environment. Manning is susceptible in cold weather games...Denver. They won't even win the division this year. This is less than what Tebow did in his benched 1st full season.

That said @!#$ Denver and their entire organization.

If you truly think they are better with Tebow at least your posts are logical. But it sounds like you are ok with the fact Elway should do what he thinks is best for winning.. you just don't think they are doing the right thing.

That being said -- if you want to place a bet on SDC vs DEN division champ.. I'll accept for basically any amount.

Re: Peyton Manning landing spot - it's Denver

Tim Tebow was the worst quarterback in the NFL since Ryan Leaf was picked second in the 1998 draft right behind... Peyton Manning. At least Leaf actually could throw a football.

Denver won despite Tebow and his "skillz", not because of him. LOL @ all these Tebow-crazed morans. Just another example of how "faith" and "religion" cause human beings to lose their rational thought process. (ducking, as christians everywhere try to stone me to death or burn me on their cross)

Good luck Tim, whatever Arena Football League team you end up "starring" for.

Also I find it basically unbelievable someone can think Tebow gives a better shot at winning than Manning.. but whatever.

brandon's right. you don't mortgage your future for a veteran QB unless his name is Carson Palmer

lol you haven't seen any of my posts in the Offseason thread. Chargers are on the verge of being in rebuilding mode. Maybe after Norv and AJ get canned... or Spanos sells the team.

Re: Peyton Manning landing spot - it's Denver

People tend to do better at things they enjoy doing, and do better at furthering causes they believe in. For example, if you do a research paper on a subject that bores you to death, it will be more difficult to do well then if you can research your favorite topic instead. It was completely obvious that Broncos management did not enjoy the Tebow experience. It was likely that they would have always struggled to force themselves to try to build something, to create something, to constantly work on something that they disdained.

As such, Peyton was probably worth more to the Broncos then he was to any other team. It gives them a supreme excuse to not start Tebow, as opposed to being stuck in a damned if you do, damned if you don't situation.
