Excluding the obvious Teboners like MacGruder, etc., it's not so amazing when put into context. Peyton was a total unknown
(to the public) concerning his health and arm strength. It was perceived at the time to be a big risk for the team in terms of money and the "Tebow" backlash.
I did not vote in that poll, and I can't remember why, but I really didn't believe that the Broncos were interested in PM at the time he was cut. However, when he first visited the Broncos, I got real excited because Elway was assuring us that the neck was of little concern and it was just a matter of time.
I do remember wanting the Broncos to try to keep Tebow as a back up, but now in hindsight realize that I should never second-guess Elway again, especially when it comes to QB's. He knows his stuff, and this whole episode is why i am real excited about OZ.
I think Elway may have pulled off another heist with this kid. We'll find out soon enough.
