Adopt-a-Bronco:
Q Smith
Default Peyton Manning vs Tim Tebow

As a fan of the Denver Broncos Iím somewhat conflicted. I had more fun watching the Broncos last year than I have had in a decade. It had been nearly that long since the Broncos won a playoff game, and when the season started with the glowing presence of Kyle Orton under center I wasnít very optimistic.

Tim Tebow managed to change my pessimism into optimism, and my optimism into glee. I took great delight in Tebowís ability to prove the naysayers wrong time and time again. I loved watching Merril Hoge backpedal from his opinions after, on a weekly basis, Tebow proved he could do exactly what Hoge said he was incapable of. I canít help the fact that I love watching blow-hards eat their words, and Tebow served up giant portions of crow for a lot of those types last season.

I agree and I find it unfortunate that we couldn't keep Tim on the team.

When I saw the thread title I lol'ed. Though last year was fun at times, I'm glad we are now a football team and not a sideshow. Last year wore me out.

If you're not excited about this season, then you aren't paying attention.

Having Peyton Manning is pretty damn awesome from a "winning titles now" standpoint, so I got no problems with replacing our starter with Manning.

But a lot of my Manning hype gets drug down by trading Tim for almost nothing, signing Hanie to be our new backup QB, then using a 2nd on Osweiler when bigger need, higher talent guys where on the board.

Am I pumped for the Manning led Broncos? Sure am. But this same team with Tebow as the #2 QB with Lavonte David to replace DJ would have me a lot more excited.

I hate to break the news to you,but noone was going to offer more than what we got. There was no line of teams trying for Tebow. there was the jags & the jets that's it.

I guess I watch football for entertainment, and last year was by far the most entertaining Broncos season in a long time, sideshow or not.

I thought it was pretty cool that our sideshow beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in the playoffs. My brother in law is a huge Steelers fan, and he was laughing his butt off about getting to play the Broncos in the first round.

Having our sideshow eliminate Rapistburger was beyond sweet.

I think you're missing the point. If that's all anyone was offering, why trade him?

It was fun last year that is for sure and if you are a Broncos fan, all that matters is that the Broncos win.

But I wonder sometimes why the coaching staff doesn't get more credit with how they used Tebow last year. They changed gears mid-stream, adjusted everything for a QB with "unique" capabilities and certain limitations and between their adjustments, and the team buy in, they put TT in a position to succeed for the most part.

So many coaches and staffs would never have done what Fox and his crew did. They would have stuck to their "system" and tried to force a square peg into a round hole and last year's magic never would have happened.

So I say kudos to the coaching staff for putting it all together last year.

I just cannot see a scenario where it would have worked out well with Tebow and Manning on the same team. Not with the way the fan base was.

His skill set also doesnt really fit what we do anymore. Hes a hell of a goal line threat, but thts not something Manning offenses have struggled with. And if Peyton were to go down, the entire offense would have to change again

Watching a pathetic passing game lose its last 3 games of the season was not exactly "fun"

That 6 game winning streak was though, but once the gimmick was figured out the "fun" stopped

The playoff win was awesome, but the Patriot loss showed once again showed what happens when you take away the gimmick

But now we have a one of the best to ever play, and because of that this season has me more excited than any in a while

Beating good teams is fun to though
Watching one of the best passers of all time is pretty fun

I agree that he doesn't fit what we do anymore, and I actually like the potential of Brock quite a bit.

What I don't get is the take that Tebow needed to be traded because he would be a distraction.

Manning + Tebow is like oil and water.

Tebow may someday prove himself as an NFL QB, but he'll never be a Manning style QB. No point in having him sit behind Manning -- it'd be a disservice to both Tebow and the Team.

You're blind if you honestly think Manning and Tebow could have coexisted on this team.

I still don't understand how people can trash a guy that helped the team win a bunch of games. It's okay and possible to like Tim, be sad he's gone, and realize what a great opportunity to have Manning as our QB. Life doesn't always have to be this or that.

Both are professionals. I dont think it would have been a problem. Ultimately though I do believe Tim is no longer on the team because he wanted an opportunity this season, which he wouldn't have had here.
