Peyton Manning In – Tim Tebow Out [NoeBrainer]
The Denver Broncos are about to land a big fish while getting rid of a minnow.
Getting Peyton Manning means two things for the Denver Broncos; 1) They are a better franchise and 2) Tim Tebow is expendable. Peyton Manning is a four-time MVP and a Super Bowl champion. Granted, he missed all of last season with a neck injury that required multiple surgeries, but I would opt for Manning over Tebow if Peyton no longer had a neck at all.
Tim Tebow is a completely average quarterback. The man had some good comeback wins last season, but he only completed 46.5% of his passes. That is absolutely brutal. His passer rating was a awful 72.9 which was good for 27th in the league.
With those numbers in mind, there is no way that Tim Tebow is a good enough passer to have sustained success as a legitimate franchise QB in the NFL. Absolutely no way. He might have won a game here and there, but long-term success is a mirage with Tebow's skills (or lack thereof). People love Tebow because he's a great guy. That is totally understandable. However, they misinterpret their love for the man by exaggerating Tebow's credentials, potential, and production. When you take the emotional away, Tebow is average. That's the bottom line.
