Who cares about whether someone thought we could land him or not or whether he could perform once here. Once we got him my take was and still is that the pressure is on to win a SB. Last time I checked, last year was a pretty miserable failure in that regard. Now, I wasn't expecting a SB victory the first year but once you end up with the number #1 seed you better make a deep run. My complaint with Manning has always been his playoff record.
The jury is still out. This season has been great and all so far but really, these gaudy stats are meaningless unless it leads to a SB win. So far, the playoff experience with Tebow vs the experience with Manning is 1000x better.
