Default Rumors on Tebow.

http://www.rantsports.com/redzonetal...eup-in-denver/

Just saw this article. Apparently it's going around we're making a move for Peyton, I don't see it happening but you never know.

Also, Schefter is saying that the Jags would be willing to deal a 2nd and 5th for Tebow.

Peyton Manning would get killed behind the Broncos terrible line just like Orton was. We saw the same thing against the Pats... Plus is Manning going to want to play under Fox who was so horrible offensively?

Only a delusional Tebow hater would bank on this story having any legitimacy considering it's source as well. One of those stories it is so easy to pretend there is smoke there when it's all just speculation.

They source Shefter and Shefter said Manning wouldn't have any interest in the Broncos.. Tebow haters can dream though..

It's funny that the owner of the Jags says he would have used a 1st round pick on Tebow but then the team is only offering a 2nd and a 5th.

considering the amt of work tebow needs he should feel flattered that a team even offered that.

And what exactly does Tebow need to work on? Be technical and don't just use generic terms like "footwork". I want to know how much of a guru you are.

That was just Shefters speculation. Don't talk like it's a fact. Shefter said they could offer a first as well. He was probably just stating a safe realistic pick. Besides.. you aren't going to trade the max value when Tebow is on a short term contract. He could re-sign somewhere else besides the Jags when his contract is up.

I kind of thought that you were just blowing smoke. It's good to know you're capable of such awesome analysis.

No... YOU are the one that is stupid.. talking about some made up media nonsense as if it's legitimate or denigrating Tebow which is what you implied.

But I thought Tebow's inability to read a defense quickly was purely McCoy's fault for "not letting him pass more..."

Why is everyone only talking about Tebow improving? Intellectual laziness.

A normal passing QB could not have improved that offense the way Tebow did... It's great to have a great pure passing QB when you have a great offense around them. When you don't you are really screwed. Which is why Orton looked so much better on the Chiefs.

The only two things guaranteed in life are death and taxes. But a close third is anything you read on rantsports.com.

i heard a rumor that the Pats are willing to trade Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski to the Broncos in exchange for Knowshon Moreno. true story.

I doubt this really matters. Whatever team Peyton goes to he basically becomes the offensive cordinator as well. That team will be running the same offense that Peyton ran in Indy assuming that decent pieces are in place.

The problem is theres about 15 other teams that would love to sign Peyton. Unless he's going only for top dollar ( we could pay him 30 million a season if we wanted) then he's be looking to go to a more established team.

If I were him id be talking to Jim Harbaugh in SF. Trade Alex Smith for a high pick or WR and sign Reggie Wayne and boom that the sickest team in the league.

Im sure the league would love this too. San Fran becomes an annual contender and Peyton is responsible for the construction of anoter billion dollar stadium.

You're right dude, Tebow is clearly a polished QB, a finished product in the vein of Peyton Manning or Joe Montana. All the best QBs can't complete 50% of their passes.

You don't need to be a doctor to know that Manning has 1-2 years left in the league, at most.

Sandy Clough on local radio blew this rumor out of the water. I think it is stupid to even think the team is working trades right now.
