Peyton Manning is coming to Denver Open Open Thread
Peyton Manning is coming to Denver. The story says that this means that Denver is going to trade Tim Tebow.
This has “short-term solution” written all over it. Now, if they benched Tebow (and I believe that Tebow would, in fact, take one for the team and go back to secondary) then this might have “long-term solution” written all over it… give Tebow the 2011 MVP as a mentor and that raw talent could easily become… erm… processed talent.
If Tebow is traded? The upside (on the outside) is that Manning drags the Broncos, kicking and screaming, to a Superbowl. This might happen in the first year, maybe in the second… but, after that, Manning will pretty much have to retire and the Broncos will be the team that traded away Tebow (who seems likely to have at least a decade of good make-it-to-the-playoffs years in him). Maybe a Superbowl ring will sweeten that… but the downside (on the outside?) is that Manning gets injured in his third game of the season… and the Broncos will be the team that traded away Tebow.
