I was not shocked to see #18 choose Denver. Peyton Manning is cerebral on and off the field. He knew what he wanted and the Mile High City was calling to him. Denver hasn’t had a quarterback since Elway, their front office hasn’t been too bright over the years in my opinion. I still will never understand trading Cutler and Marshall away. It set their franchise back a few years and now they are putting all their marbles into the legend with a fused neck. Peyton has a defense in Denver that should allow him some breathing room. If he can stay healthy he will compete for a AFC title within 2 years. The more interesting story is that of the little known quarterback that Manning forced out of town. Tebow.
Tim Tebow being traded to New York had me raising my eyebrows at the television. First, Linsanity now Tebowmania. The Jets just signed Sanchez to an extension, and lets face it the first mistake he makes the Tebowmania will take over like a plague. The Tebow fans are unrealistic and his glory in college was legendary. This isn’t college, the NFL requires the QB to throw efficiently, and I have not seen it from Tebow yet. That said, if anyone can do it Tim Tebow can. Mark Sanchez might as well pack his bags, because there is no way he is emotionally mature enough to handle this situation. If he was a good starter in the NFL things would be different. He has one of the worst QB ratings in the league, and now has to compete with someone whose QB rating is worse than his. Mark has the tools to improve, but his offensive coordinator has held his hand for his entire career. It’s comedic gold, if only Hard Knocks was covering the Jets this summer. I would pay to see Rex curse and holler in front of Tebow. The whole dynamic is interesting to me, how many backup quarterbacks get the team’s private jet? I sense a dangerous situation. The Jets fans were going crazy today on the radio, some even renounced their fandom. Tebowmania in New York should be epic!
What a week it has been, it doesn’t look like Atlanta will be making much more noise in free agency, so I shall begin to hone in to the 2012 NFL Draft. As always you can tweet me your comments @ColossalChicken or post below.
