So that's it. Tebow goes to the Big Apple and gets in a New York state of mind while Peyton rides into this dusty old cowtown trying to resurrect his gunslinger past. What say you, Broncos fans? Good, bad or indifferent?

If you made polls like that all you'd get are mediocre responses.

Do you like candidate A or candidate B, or do you kind of like both of them?

Uh, sure. Number three.

What's the point?

I am wrestling with my dislike for Peyton Manning. 2003-2004 is hard to let go of. If we are going with the world's largest head on a toothpick, lets at least give him what he needs to make it work.

Poor choices, but I picked I don't like it. I soooo wanted to see this team finally build itself around a QB. I like Tebow and everything he brought to the game in Denver. I still think with the proper coaching, he could have gotten better in Denver. I don't like it, and I don't think Manning will bring us back to the title.......but I'm going to cheer Manning and this team on, just I have been doing no matter the QB.

I hope Tebow finds sucess in NY. I doubt it though.....NY is hard on QBs.

The poll is an EPIC FAIL because it is not multiple choice and you can't see who picked what.

Yeah, but he's OUR world's biggest head on a toothpick. We had "ol' horse teeth," remember? All our best QBs were funny looking. Tebow was too pretty.

Well now he's got Rex Ryan to coach him. I dont think tebow will like Ryan's curse word rants. Sparano is already drawing up wildcat plays again.

Luckily Denver still has Decker. I'm in, even if I am dragging my feet a bit. I told my mom the same thing today. Manning may be a big headed escapee from the Island of Dr Moreau, but he is our big headed escapee.

Peyton Manning for me is like when Bill Romanowski played for the Broncos. When he was a Bronco I loved him.. when he didn't I hated him.

Peyton was a QB I always admired for his skill and knowledge of the game, but hated how he would get the calls from the Refs and how he seemed to always make plays.

Lets hope he gets the calls and makes the plays in Denver. Go Broncos !!

Manning was the only way for EFX to dump Tebow without a fan revolt. As much as I loved rooting for Tebow, we just replaced him for Peyton F#%king Manning. I can't wait to watch Manning... with the league rules set up specifically for Manning... destroy the opposition instead of the Broncos.

I don't think there would have been anything sweeter than a Tebow led Broncos team winning the Lombrdi, but overall I get the move and think it was the best for all parties.

Elway and Co clearly didn't have a real interest in building around him, and that is the only way Tebow will be successful in the NFL.

I am glad he's gone. I am extremely tired of subpar QB play. We now have a Quarterback who can consistantly get DT and Decker the ball.

Huge year for both of them.

Did you see what happened to the Colts when they lost Peyton? Worst team in the league. As for the idea that giving up 45 to the Pats was all our D's fault, you are kidding....right? Our offensive ineptitude and lack of execution in that game had nothing to with the outcome or the points put up by the Pats? Seriously? How many games of 3 quarters of 3-and-outs is any defense supposed to hold up to? I'm going to go back this weekend and rewatch all the games we were blown out of this last year (hell... I'll try to watch all of them we lost), and see just how many of them our offense did anything to help out our "D". I pulled for Tebow this whole last year and have the posting track record to show for it. But to try and even evaluate how much better we could be as a team with Manning at the helm is rediculous. If we can get out the gate on teams in the first half, VonDoom is going to make Mathis and Freeney look pedestrian (while racing to see which one can get to 15 sacks first). I'm not even going to get into the idea of other free agents looking at us in a favorable new light as far as contending goes. Elway sent a very strong message to the rest of the NFL with this move. Time to get to work make it happen. Quit being a whinger and get on board, this should be fun.

If Tebow did nothing more than get Orton benched, I would still love him. I will miss almost everything; the good plays that few humans can even hope to do, the fire, the honesty, the terrible plays that are so bad it's literally hilarious (spin move!), the comebacks, the wobbly ducks. I'll miss it all. Won't miss Broncbow, macgruder, or the other Gatorade fans excuses. I'm still mad about some of the religious bigotry against him too. Hopefully we'll move on, but I wish Tebow the best.

Hard to argue with bringing Manning in, even for the most ardent Tebow fan.

I loved the time #15 had in Denver. Glad my son's don't understand what a player leaving means yet because my oldest definitely likes that guy.

I'm looking forward to a healthy #18 driving opposing defenses bonkers like he used to do to me. That will be fun.

Tim Tebow is my favorite player in the NFL. But I am objective enough to realize that he just wasn't a very good QB. The move for Manning was the right move and I'm happy that he is a Bronco... very surreal day yesterday for me.

I still believe that Tebow is going to be one helluva player in this league. I don't think in the long run it will be at QB, but when he fails out of QB I expect someone to make great use of him as a Frank Wycheck type HB/TE. In fact, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to see an innovative coach use him much like Bilicheat used Aaron Hernandez this year... but Tebow will be a lot better at it.
