I have yet to hear a competent explanation as to why the Broncos are considering trading Tim Tebow solely because they managed to land Peyton Manning. While Peyton may be one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, he’s a sneeze and a light breeze away from spending the rest of his life in a neck brace. This presents Tebow with the excellent opportunity to not only help Denver but also begin the second phase of his career: Faith Healer. If (when) Peyton’s neck falls off because the water pressure of the shower in the Denver locker room is too powerful, our lord and savior Tim Tebow can use the same voodoo he used to take a sup-par Broncos team to the second round of the playoffs to heal Peyton’s neck. I’ve seen the late-night infomercials – all it takes to heal somebody after they’ve been crippled by disease or injury is a man of faith shouting at said cripple in front of a room full of people. Tebow provides the invaluable ability to heal Manning when he’s injured, whether he suddenly becomes blind, is paralyzed after a horrific car accident, or re-aggravates his neck injury.
Aside from the obvious faith-healing benefit of having Tebow on your team, he’s a damn good football player. He’s not a great quarterback by any measurement and seems to have problems with things such as throwing a football, but he has the size and attitude to be effective on the football field. Denver would be foolish to not line him up as a running back, tight-end, or as the quarterback in situations which call for the wildcat offense. The Broncos are too blinded by the mania that has been Tebow to realize that they have a Running Back/Quarterback hybrid who, coupled with one of the greatest passers of all-time, can bring a nearly unprecedented dimension to their offensive playbook. He’s also not a terrible option as a back-up quarterback, especially when the starter may be one knockdown away from retirement. Tebow is a dynamic player who, if used properly, can confuse defenses and inspire his teammates, yet he’s on the trading block.
If I were Bill Belichick , Andy Reid, or Sean Payton I would be salivating at the mere idea of being able to get Tebow for a 3rd or 4th round draft pick.
