The Denver Broncos acquired Peyton Manning from the Colts after whispers of trades from the Dolphins, Cardinals, Titans and 49ers spread like a wildfire that was extinguished faster than you can say “pigskin.”
Twenty four year-old Tim Tebow may be good for publicity – the face of buzzcut Jesus and a devotion admired by many – but his statistics beg to differ.
He even had me believing for a moment, after he brought Denver to the second round of the playoffs for the first time since 2006. Now he’ll likely be playing alongside Mark Sanchez in a wildcat formation.
And I wonder, why did God send him to the Jets? He must be teaching him a lesson in humility. Not that the Jets are a bad team, but there’s always the possibility that he will be the backup quarterback.
And Peyton all blessed and recovered from his neck injuries and operations, playing for another horse team. Ready to kick AFC South ass, maybe even his Superbowl champ brother and Tim’s tebowing booty. On the upcoming season, he said:
“I realize I don’t have 14 years left, by any means, this isn’t something where I’m just building a foundation to do something in two years or three years. This is a `now’ situation. We’re going to do whatever we can to win right now. That’s all I’m thinking about right now.”
