Ok, so given nobody knows if Tebow will improve or not (despite his great work ethic), why is it shocking the Broncos would look for another QB?

I see the same number of championships for both players over the next three seasons here in Denver. Thing is, if Tebow doesn't fail, he has more than three left in the tank.

Why wouldn't Tebow improve? He has dominated at every level just off raw ability without even an attempt to polish him.. why on Earth wouldn't he improve? It's not even about improving.. it's just about playing a different style.. that happens by doing it.. there are no guarantees ANY player will improve.. and ALL players have to improve coming into the NFL.. even Andrew Luck...

Besides.. how much more does Tebow need to improve? If he had the whole season the Broncos could have gotten home field advantage and beaten anyone and won the superbowl.. Tebow isn't the one that needs to improve.. it's the line and receivers and especially coaches,. They didn't even use Tebow to his optimum abilities...

Either do I, but I don't see our "system" being what it was if he did play here.

I trust Elway to do the right thing. He's a winner and will foster Championships. I'll cheer for the Broncos whether its Manning or Tebow but I think manning and a change at QB is really where Elway's heart is and it gives him sufficient cause to trade tebow and be done with the McDaniels era player that he's just never been comfortable with.

It's sad but I think the best thing about Manning coming here would be the exit of some of the posters.

If it meant the anti-Tebow idiots left, then you are right.

This is exactly why you and Elway deserve Manning....

I find it funny that Elway and the Broncos are going to suffer for many many long years because of the same kind of stubbornness that caused Elway to take so long to win a superbowl in the first place...

I think him demanding to go to another team is identical to this situation of stubbornly refusing to try to adapt to Tebow... or even consider it really.. its a smug arrogance and ignorance.. and it's going to cost him just the same IMO..

We're damned if we do damned if we don't. I would rather stick with Tebow because it shortens the cycle. We either get a good long term QB or we start the search for one all over again shortly. Manning delays the process by at least two years. Maybe three or even four. I don't see us winning a Super Bowl with Tebow in three years. The team has too many holes and needs to grow A LOT. But I don't see us winning one with Manning either. Manning could mask a lot of holes on offense but historically he's been a TERRIBLE playoff quarterback. Why should we expect that to change at age 36 (or 37 or 38 when we could realistically potentially contend) and four neck surgeries? To top it all off we'd likely have a draft pick in the high teens or low twenties thereby making our chances of getting a top QB prospect after he retires difficult at best. If Tebow fails this year we'll be in the running for Barkley or whoever else is the flavor of the month.

The worst part would be becoming one of those cheap-ass rent-a-franchises like the Vikings or baseball's Florida Marlins that try to go on a rampage every few years with other teams' players in unsustainable fashion, leading to an empty shell of a team nobody really and truly cares about.

Kids can't grow up to love a franchise like that.

This team isn't built for a player like Manning.. that's the whole point.... it's like hiring the greatest chef in the world and giving him spam and ketchup to make your meal...

The funny part is that if not for Tebow and his ability to make this team successful even with all it's flaws someone like Manning wouldn't even be attracted.. I don't even think he is.. I think the Broncos want him but I doubt Manning is dumb enough to be fooled like everyone else.. I think manning knows what a freak Tebow is.. if he comes it's likely only if Tebow is willing to play alongside with him..

What's sad about that? I guarantee alot if those labelled "haters" personally like Tebow, but really dislike his nuthugging fans.

You mean the same Marlins that won two titles? Yeah, that would suck. I hate winning.

Not even close to what this would be....

we've got guys like Champ, Dawkins, DJ, Clady, Elvis, etc... that deserve to get the best shot to win a championship before their time runs out....

I understand both sides of the argument but Denver is nowhere near being a mercenary type team
