Adam Schefter is reporting Manning has informed the Broncos he has chosen them.

What does this mean for Tebow?
What does this mean for Alex Smith?
What does this mean for the Dolphins?

If I were the Broncos I would KEEP Tebow, and have him learn from Manning.

I expect Tebow to take his talents to South Beach.

That might be the only way the Dolphins can salvage anything, from a PR point-of-view.

As noted in the link, he's getting traded. I actually want to root for Tebow now, because it sure seems like he's getting a raw deal. (Media hype for Tebow will talk me out of this soon, I'm sure.) It's not impossible he could end up on a better team depending on how this goes down - or he could end up on Jacksonville.


    What does this mean for Alex Smith?


$$$$$! Titans will go with what they have, but Miami was already desperate and now the 49ers will be. He's getting over paid for his trouble.


    What does this mean for the Dolphins?


They will continue to be bad at football.

I really thought the Niners would be a better landing spot for Manning. They have better receivers and a elite defense not that Denver doesn't have a top notch defense.

They were saying on ESPN this weekend that when Manning met with John Fox, he told Manning that if he came they'd basically let Manning install his own offense.
That might be the reason he's going to denver and not San Fran.

Denver has a decent defense but need receivers. I would have gone 49ers also but he does his homework. It is a weaker division by far so maybe that factored in.

Evidently it isn't, because people are still using that as a thread title.

I hope they don't unretire the #18 for Peyton.

And, dang, I'm definitely going to have to buy Madden 13 now.

Didn't he and Eli have a desire to meet in a Super Bowl at some stage? That may have swayed him away from the 49ers.

I'm not sure I see Peyton as the sort to shy away from a challenge and even if he is I'm not sure he'd view Seattle, St Louis and Arizona as a particular threat.

I was talking to my friend last night and we both said if Peyton went to Denver, chaos would reign. The aftermath of the deal may end up being more interested than Peyton actually going somewhere.

Alex Smith re-signs with 49ers for more money.
Dolphins stick with Matt Moore
Tim Tebow gets traded to the Patriots and McDaniels and Belichick gets their x factor to work with who will NEVER be a threat to Brady but can do some interesting things.



Life is hilariously cruel.

The best effect of this might be the beefing up of the AFC West. Kansas City and Oakland have to step up if Denver and San Diego develops consistency. Rivers is no longer top dog in that clutch of teams.

If the thread title is referring to Tebow Time, then yes, I agree wholeheartedly.

Yeah, I don't get what the Broncos are thinking here. If anyone can turn Tebow into a real quarterback, it'd be Manning. The Broncos are nuts if they think Manning's going to continue on beyond a couple of years. Why not keep Tebow around? It's not like he's going to be a locker room disruption.

But hey, if the Broncos want to wind up high and dry without a quarterback once Peyton retires in a couple of years, that's their prerogative. Ask the Vikings how this strategy is working out for them.

Jaguars will make an offer for Tebow, not a doubt in my mind. Hopefully they're not desperate enough for ticket sales/relevance that they'd move their first-rounder (#7 overall), but I could definitely see Denver accepting a third-rounder.

He's not shying away from a challenge. He has a finite amount of time left if he can return to form.

Considering Fox changed his offense for Tebow, I'd think he'd find a way for Manning.
