An Easy Choice

Peyton Manning is heading to Denver.  Can’t say I blame him.  When you have one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time recruiting you, and the team you chose made the playoffs with a below average quarterback last season, the choice was an easy one.  Denver also has a ton of cap space, so this will not be John Elway’s last signing this offseason.

I’m sure that there are plenty of people mad at Elway today because bringing in Manning means shipping off Tim Tebow.  Again, an easy choice.  Who is a better quarterback?  I will take Manning over Tebow every day, even after multiple neck surgeries for Manning.

This is not Tebow-bashing on my part.  He plays with heart, but has less talent than Manning does.  Tebow is not bashful when it comes to his love of Jesus, and that should be applauded.  But that alone does not win football games.

My guess is Tebow lands in either Miami or Jacksonville.  He will certainly boost ticket sales wherever he goes.  But please do not fault John Elway for bringing in a first ballot Hall of Famer.  If you can objectively and honestly say you would choose Tebow over Manning, you may need to reassess what you desire for your team’s success.
