I just wonder how Tebow is dealing with the cold, I heard those Canadian nights can get quite chilly.

I'm saying it.

Then again, I've been wrong in the past.

Also, I don't really care.

All that talk about "Well, you need someone if Peyton goes down to come in and perform the way Peyton does" and then they get Caleb Hanie.

That trade looks more and more silly in hindsight. The rest of the league would have needed more time to factor Tebow into their plans to give a 3rd rounder.
They wanted the circus out of town..

there were some rumors tha they would flat cut him..

I also thought it was short sided but Elway wanted to get "Joshes problem kid" gone..

He lost some of my respect with that move.. Not that he cares about that..

And that is the problem We downgraded our backup QB from Tebow to Hanie simply because the FO didn't feel like they could control public sentiment despite having Peyton Manning as the #1 QB.

Of course... at the first signs of Sanchez struggling, there will be fan screamage of heretofore unseen proportion for Tebow.

I see a distraction circus on the horizon... which, come to think of it, Rex Ryan seems to have no problem with.

This one has a better chance than the "Vince Young will win multiple superbowls with the Titans" prediction from a few years ago

There's also the fact that once again EFX lowballed themselves before the trade negotiations even started...

I don't watch Bayless much, but seems like he is having some uncomfortable times on ESPN lately. First busted about his high school career, which wasn't much, and just today I think it was he was making a point about pass rushers not putting up numbers, Coples I think in particular, but was corrected by someone else that a player he said didn't do much, Gholston of the Jets, had great stats in college, which made his point wrong, and had the look of not sure what to do. I felt kind of sorry for him.

I have and anyone with half a brain should do it too. He's the greatest football player of our generation, a franchise face QB for many years to come and you just don't trade that for a patched up fossil with three years left in the tank. Elway will be sorry, you all will be sorry Go Jets!

Maybe so, but he's been consistently right about Tebow. He loved him (in a Man Crush Way) when Tebow was in college. He said that Tebow would be a force in the NFL if a team would just give him a chance.

After Josh McStalin was fired, Bayless said we'd get to see some of Tebow's greatness, and we did. And Bayless was WAY ahead of the naysayers last year predicting that Tebow might just lead the Broncos to the playoffs. Which he did.

He also predicted that Elway would never buy in to Tebow and that Tebow would likely be traded during the offseason. And he was. Skip said this even when Tebowmania was at its height.

No matter how you slice it, Bayless has been right about Tebow most of the time.

He was just as right if not more right about Cam Newton, start to finish. Well before he started to look like the #1 pick.

He's right about Lebron.

He's right about Durant and Westbrook.

He's right about the Knicks, a la Melo and Stoudemire.

I think if Tebow developed into a starting QB, even an average one, it would only be good for the NFL.

Skip is literally a character on ESPN. Scripted up the wazoo. He's not a real person.

Only because we lost a potentially great FB

True, with all those issues Peyton Manning has had inside the RZ and all.

http://www.opposingviews.com/i/serio...-manning-colts

Mgrex's excellent winning factors series ran the numbers on the Colts redzone success from 2004 to 2008. In that 5 year span the Colts scored 225 TDs with 105 FGs on 371 trips to the redzone. 5.09 points per redzone appearance.

Denver RZ problems are over with Peyton Manning you retard. We don't need a gimmick player anymore. Manning wasn't coming off the field for Tebow dumbass and Tebow isn't going to be move to RB on our team.
