There would've been no distraction. At least not of the bad kind.
Do you honestly believe that "Broncos" fans who baldly stated as (if it were) fact that (HOF'er) John Elway was afraid to give Tebow a real chance for fear that Tebow would break his records.... would have found any more respect to show for (future HOF'er) Peyton Manning? They wouldn't have. They would have instantly attacked (and did) anyone they felt stood in the way of Tebow being the starting QB.
Elway absolutely made the right decision (not retaining Tebow). It was time for the circus to go somewhere... anywhere
