Some of you are looking at this trainwreck and thinking “Peyton’s old, he’s rich, he’s got a broken neck and risks his ability to walk every time he takes a sack. Why is he doing this again?!” The answer is pretty simple. For him, it’s
free bj’s on every road trip the chance to compete at the highest level again. For the Broncos, they get $150 apiece for new Manning jerseys to trade Tim Tebow at probably his highest trade value, coming off a miracle win vs. the Steelers in the playoffs after an otherwise mediocre 8-8 season. Denver fans loved Tebow, then hated Tebow, then they loved him, and in another few months, they’ll hate him again if Manning’s head doesn’t roll off of his shoulders after the first time his pocket collapses around his stuck-in-the-mud high tops.
Here’s hoping that someone picks Tebow up and wins the Superbowl running the option.
