Let's see... his two top receivers from the year before.... traded.
Look at Old Man Stokely's sudden revival to see how important familiarity is, even for one of the best QB's ever to play. Tebow had none.
Not to mention a new coach brought in just in time for a cancelled offseason. You'd have a hard time inventing a less ideal scenario for a rookie QB to move into his second season.
In the end, if you couldn't find reason to give Tebow the benefit of the doubt, you shouldn't do so for Manning either. As for me, I think more time is justified in both cases.
