It's all due to young guys playing another year and QB issues that REV pointed to.
Manning is nowhere near as mobile as Tebow, but he moves in the pocket with so much poise and feel for where the pressure is compared to almost all other QBs. Look at the game against Carolina, they had a bunch of pressure on him but he was able to move around the pocket, step up or run out of the pocket to get away. Tebow for all his mobility and athletic ability didn't have a feel for the rush and wasn't nearly as effective moving in the pocket to keep the rush away.
