Default Tebow Time Over in Denver?

Payton's Place will now be in the Mile High City... Tebow to be traded?

That is what is being reported. I don't think Peyton has a lot of years left. Who knows if he can even return from the neck surgery anywhere close to 100%.

Seems like a natural progression from a colt to a bronco.

I think Manning will be back to form. I also think Tebow will be a pro bowler within the next few years.

Good for both (soon to be) teams.


But where does Tim go? Miami, McDaniels Land, San Francisco?
I'm hoping New England and take over for Brady in 3 years- nevermind didn't know Brady is only 34...wow.

Jacksonville!

And.... unless he drastically improves, his Pro Bowl chances don't look that great either...

New England already has Ryan Mallett who they are doing some serious grooming with. Tebow makes the most sense in either San Francisco or Miami.

San Francisco because they have an amazing defense and can afford to have a short yardage, slower offense. Plus, if Randy Moss has anything left, Tebow can bomb it as good as anyone.

Miami makes sense business wise. They'd get a lot more season tickets if Tebow returned to his homestate. They have no real QB of the future and no really good WRs or TEs, and you saw what Tebow can do with no good WRs or TEs.

But Tebow may have to take a back seat soon, idk if any team is willing to take the risk with playing Tebow.

When I heard Peyton was coming to my beloved Broncos, I Tebowed!

That makes the most sense. I'd be very surprised if the hoodie wanted to trade for Tebow. That seems like a bad fit. Jax is really the only place where I could see him as a starter next year. Maybe Miami... Their head coach was the offensive coordinator for Green Bay last year. It would be quite a departure from coaching Aaron Rogers to Tim Tebow.

Tebow could make the Pro Bowl. Andy Dalton made it last year. A lot of players don't actually show up. Also fan voting can help to put a player on the roster that doesn't really belong. I agree that he needs to improve to deserve to make it. He's not in the discussion for a top 3 conference QB.

Tebow's QB rating was better than Grossman! So he has that going for him.

Denver doesn't seem like a great fit for Peyton either. SF, Miami, and TEN seem to have better rosters to put around a QB.

No matter where Tim Tebow ends up, I'll always remember one of my favorite comebacks ever against the Bears this past season.

Possibly. He won't have a long football career as a starter. The tour can always use a famous lefty. Has not been a good one since Earl Anthony, Johnny Petraglia, and Mike Aulby.

As average as Mark Sanchez is, I doubt the Jets brought Tebow in to start after paying Sanchez. It again seems like a odd fit. Philly was probably the best place for Tebow IMO.

And now the deal might not go through...

Down to Jets and Jags apparently. Hopefully it's the Jags. Sanchez is broken either way now. First Manning and now Tebow..

More irony in this sequence of events involving the Denver Broncos. Former Bears backup quarterback Caleb Hanie, who was released by the Bears, will sign a 2-year contract to become Peyton Manning's backup in Denver.
http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports...0,369176.story

Manning replaced Tim Tebow, who had replaced former Bears quarterback Kyle Orton, who Denver had acquired in the trade for Jay Cutler.

just being New York - Tebow is immediately inundated with opportunities to endorse, appear, and be far more famous and well paid...

Tim Tebow's numbers aren't eye-popping but one thing is...

He's doing better and his batting average is up around .226 and slugging pct .356 - not the kind of numbers that a call-up directly from Class A ball

BUT wherever he plays the attendance skyrockets....
Teams that usually draw 1500-3000 fans will have record crowds (7000-9000) and sellouts when they host Tebow's St. Lucie Mets.
This article says he is almost singlehandedly responsible for a LEAGUE WIDE increase in attendance of 13% over last year.
https://www.milb.com/milb/news/tebow...76/t-185364810

Ya gotta wonder if the NY Mets might still make him a late season roster addition just to gauge the fans' reaction..

"..nothing definitive yet on whether the 30-year-old Tebow could get
a September callup to the out-of-contention New York Mets."
