I don't think we are that far off. A Manning acquisition as improbable as it is would yield a fair amount of free agents and make some average talent that much better. We'd gain draft picks by trading Tebow and still have our picks to build a younger generation. I like Tebow a lot but feel we are in no mans land with the QB position since John left. For a team that played in a divisional play-off game last year having a ProBowl QB with a chip on his shoulder to win and attracting high end free agents wouldn't suck. Who knows...
