Re: Peyton Manning landing spot - it's Denver

I don't know why multiple posters even bother responding to brandoncla.

I'm very eager to see how free agency plays out for the Broncos - what WR/TE pieces are placed around Peyton.

I think Tebow nets at least a 2nd rounder in the upcoming draft, and I agree with those that have said they should move Tebow now.

Get an asset to work with Manning instead of having Tebow sit on the bench (and have some "fans" yelling for him to play in Week 3).

Don't be bitter Chargers' fan, you went from fourth best team in the division to fourth best team in the division with this signing.

Re: Peyton Manning landing spot - it's Denver

Would be beyond thrilled if we get a 2nd.

ya, its really unbelievable. Especially after the mediocre seasons he put up, he really cant think hes untouchable after one good year (which is more subject to variance to his first 6 seasons), when peyton becomes available. I think he eventually signs with sf. I mean it would be brutal for him to step into a worse team, and into yet another system. Although i think it will take an apology in the form of millions that sparano recieved after the dolphins went after harbaugh.

I think someone posted a link earlier that said, that if peyton landed with the broncos, 60% believed tebow should still be a starter. Ive been firmly in the tebow isnt very good camp, so its lol to me as well. I guess its moot though since it will never happen anyway.

edit: though tbh, if the broncos cant get very good value, it would be sick to use tebow as a hybrid fb/te. Although i guess the broncos just want the drama to be over with, even if he provides some kind of value.

Re: Peyton Manning landing spot - it's Denver

I know Belichick (and McDaniels) will be interested. Plus they have a surplus of picks for this upcoming draft.

As long as JAX owner wants to keep the team in Jacksonville, he will be in the discussion in some capacity as well.

There's gotta be at least one other team (read: owner thinking $$$) who will be talking to Denver about Tebow.

I think he goes somewhere for a 2nd, and if not then maybe for a 3rd to the Patriots.

Re: Peyton Manning landing spot - it's Denver

Who'll think of the TEBOW? Being one of the 32 starting NFL QBs in the world is a right, not a privilege.

Re: Peyton Manning landing spot - it's Denver

That 60% was a hedging comment by fans, i think. That or just a sample size issue. Basically everyone is super excited about Peyton. Nowhere near 60% are pro Tebow now. One person on my Facebook feed is upset about it.. and sadly I'm friends with a lot of morons. Her whole point wasn't even that Tebow was better but that he's a good Christian.

No chance 60% still feel that way.

Re: Peyton Manning landing spot - it's Denver

chim,

you should ask your friend if she thinks someone who is a significantly less skilled surgeon, than another available option, should operate on a loved one, just because he's a good Christian.


note: I'm not really serious - and I'm not trying to get you in trouble with a friend.
i.e. don't actually ask her that.

I concur that 60% is way too high to be accurate.

Re: Peyton Manning landing spot - it's Denver

Chim,

have you ever considered tebow in a fb/te/sparingly wildcat roll if no one offers a fair price? Though again, i suppose its time to move on, and its probably not worth the drama.

You're welcome, I love leveling religious idiots - so I'm happy to help. I'd get sidetracked so much by facebook, so I just leave it on deactivate.

Def. keep me posted with what happens.

Good point.

Or she could say that "football isn't life or death".

Hmm, then you could say that since Tebow is a good Christian he should do the best thing for the team and let the more skilled Manning play. Then throw on something about humility for good measure. Maybe quote a bible verse.

Tebow made it really clear before he wanted to play QB. We don't have any idea if he can catch or block. It's not like those are super easy skills to learn.

Re: Peyton Manning landing spot - it's Denver

I'm going to add something about how someone getting a job over a more skilled person due to their religious views is discrimination.

Denying a religious person the right to do anything is a violation of freedom of religion.

I would rather have Manning making 100% of the decisions than have tebow come in and run a gimmick offense.

chim,

just tell her that if God is real, and she prays hard enough, that he will 100% be the starter.

Re: Peyton Manning landing spot - it's Denver

I'd only like to see Tebow play HB/FB/TE + a gimmick type offense with the Patriots - b/c they would do it right.

I do think Tebow can block, he IS a football player that is no question. Not sure about his catching abilities - but I think they'd be at least somewhere near average. He is a skilled athlete and is bigger than a lot of LBs ffs.

I would not want to see Tebow in that role on the Broncos, totally not worth the hassle. Peyton Manning deserves to run "his" offense and I don't think he should be distracted from getting back in the groove.

And tell her that she has to go to Church every day and light 15 candles, because his jersey number is 15.

Manning to TEBOW at the goal-line sounds awesome.

Re: Peyton Manning landing spot - it's Denver

Assuming Tebow can block is a mistake. Look at RB's. There is a really wide range of blocking abilities. They are all football players.
