John Elway now has the front-office equivalent of The Drive on his resume. Against all odds, he got out from under Tebowmania.

He already made the biggest blunder when he let someone with no business in the pros to start at quarterback. Now he's atoning for his sin against the football gods and all REAL football fans who jumped on the Teblow bandwagon and miraculously all became insightful football analysts. Prior to the freak hit that took Peyton out, he was one of the NFL's toughest and most durable ironmen. Now all of a sudden, any hit will take him out and Broncos fans and Teblow nut swingers the world over will be crying out to Elway: "Why hast thou forsaken us by taking away precious St. Timothy!!!?!?" Get a clue. Oh yeah...Tebow still sucks!

If not for Tebow the broncos would never have even had a shot to get Manning cause when Orton was the starter the offence couldn’t do anything and that defense wasn’t stopping anybody

He sat behind Orton WHOLE year as rookie. Played 3 games. Played well.
Was suppose to be starter, could not trade Orton, got no training camp period, no 1st team rep snaps, won 8 game and a play off game coming in off the bench. And this year, he will be traded.

Are you insane?!?!? The Broncos backed into the playoffs, they didn't "get in" on their own merits. The whole AFC was subpar this past season that's why the mediocre Broncos were able to pull off 8 wins against an equally mediocre set of competitors. In fact their record was the epitome of mediocre. How about the come from behind wins and how he marched down the field to greatness? Easy-a mediocre team with a mediocre defense, plays (to the bane of many football fans) soft zone or prevent defenses, allowing the gimmickry to thrive. The one playoff game with the winning TD pass in OT was capitulated by a gutsy, risky playcall. It was a big gamble. As far as the degree of difficulty on the pass? Stephen Hawking could have made that with the tongue depressor he operates his wheelchair with. I know you believe in the same magical fairytales as him and got swept up in the hype, but he is not an NFL-level Quarterback.Period.And he sucks.

Broncs are gonna lose a lot of BELIEVERS...we'll follow Tim. Come on back to Florida...we love you! Jacksonville was ignorant not to snap you up in the first place. Maybe they'll have a reawakening.

It will be interesting to find out all the perks the Broncs offered Manning. Part ownership?

I cannot think of any player that is more determined to prove his critics wrong than Tebow. He is determined to do everything he can to improve his game and his passing mechanics. After the games, he was the player staying behind to watch tapes. He then took those tapes home to continue to study and learn what he needed to do different. He is still new to the NFL but with this kind of determination, I think he has every chance of developing into an amazing QB.

Whether you are a fan of Tebow or not, I do not think we have seen the end of Tebowmania. In all honesty, I think Denver was only the beginning and that there will be many more years where Tebow is the topic of conversation when it comes to the NFL. It will be interesting to see which team will now be home to the Tebow phenomenon.

Are you kidding me? What was Elway smoking when he made this deal? Perhaps some of his pain medication affected this decision. I will remain a Bronco's fan but will root for Tebow's new team every time they play DEN.

Tim Tebow picked apart the steel curtain and passed for 316 yard, ran for 50 and scored three touchdowns. This yardage was the most Pittsburg had given up all year.

Tebow had the best game of his pro career in the wild card round, when he averaged 31.6 yards per completion, the best in the NFL in 40 years, and threw an 80-yard touchdown pass to Demaryius Thomas on the first play of overtime for a 29-23 win over heavily favored Pittsburgh and the league's No. 1 defense.

That was Denver's first playoff game in six seasons.

Tim Tebow fell apart against the Patriots and passed for 136 yards, this yardage was the most inconsistent performance following a win over a #1 ranked defense.
