And he's right. You don't have to be a Tebow lover to figure that out. Love him or hate him....Tebow IS a better option than Hanie.
I disagree. Having Tebow as a backup means having to change the entire offense to fit your backup should Manning go down. You go from running a pass first-offense to a run-first offense where the quarterback isn't accurate enough to pass. That's a massive shift.

Yeah, Hanie's been terrible. I don't disagree. I just don't see that keeping Tebow was a legitimate option for the Broncos, in part because of what he is (and more importantly what he ISN'T) on the football field, in part because his fans are stark raving lunatics.

Frankly, I'd be surprised if Hanie goes into the season at #2.
