Tebow is from the south and they use salt on their food there so the NY mayor will ban him.

I don’t know much about how this draft picks works. Does this mean that TT isn’t seen as valuable now or with more training to be a first draft choice?

Considering his new head coach’s colorful vocabulary and well publicized fascination with female footsies it will be interesting to see how the two interact.

Tim will take this with his usual grace and good attitude, and will arrive at his new team with a smile.

But sheesh, what a slap in the face. I just lost what respect I ever had for John Elway.

Sweetest deal for NY since some trinkets were swapped for Manhattan.

Can’t stand Elway personally....I was hoping Jerry Jones was going to wake up and grab him...we need a leader and a field general here in Dallas.

I hear the “tolerant twerps” in the New York media are already on their way to Home Depot to buy materials to make a cross.

How is it a sign of disrespect? Players get traded all the time - good and bad. The Broncos got the most they could for him.

It’s the way they did it.

One article I read this morning said that all the pictures of Tebow that were at the Headquarters had been removed. They just tossed him aside like he was nothing, with no acknowledgement of what he meant to the fans last year. Elway’s gushing all over Manning, but I haven’t heard one word from him about Tebow.

Manning was gracious enough to say some kind words, but not Elway.

What are the Broncos going to do when they realize Manning can’t play anymore?

Oh come on... what do you expect them to do? Manning’s the new guy. You don’t keep the pictures of the old guy up. And Elway has said plenty of nice things about Tebow.

Football is a business, and its not called the NFL (not-for-long) for nothing. This sort of thing happens all the time.

So Gotham’s starting quarterbacks are now Tim Tebow and Eli Manning? Got milk?

Joe Namath would be rolling over in his grave. If he weren’t still alive.

I’m glad Tebow did not go to the 49ers. The gays and the libs out there would have made his life a living hell.

I stand by my feelings on the matter.

I don’t think Elway treated Tebow well in how this whole thing came about. The pictures were down before the deal was even announced. I know they’re excited to have Manning, but they could show a little more class. Elway may have said nice things about Tebow in the past, but I haven’t heard him say anything about Tebow since this whole Manning frenzy began. He just tossed him.

What’s wrong with Eli Manning? He’s a two time Superbowl winner.

You guys are getting the Giants and the Jets confused. Mark Sanchez is the QB for the Jets, so it looks like Tebow will be his back-up.

Sanchez will no doubt be the Jets starter in September but if he falters it’s going to be Tim and Eli Time in the Big (New Jersey) Apple. If you thought the Tebow press crush was strong last year wait till the New York media takes hold.

Not a thing wrong with Eli, he’s a very fine person and a great quarterback.

It’s just that he and Tebow don’t exactly fit the Manhattan swingin’ image, if you know what I mean.

Elway did say some kind things about Tebow, that he wished him the best, that he would want him for a son-in-law, and that Tebow was gracious in hearing the news. Not the most gushing, I agree, but still, not entirely silent.

The chances Denver wins a Superbowl in the next 3 years is 10-1. You have an aging QB, with multiple neck surgeries on a .500 team with no defense, average receivers and a running back with two bad knees. With the money they have invested in Manning they have put themselves in a real bind. Add in the fact that Manning record in the playoffs is pretty poor 9-10. I understand Elway was looking for a way to dump Tebowmania. But this gamble will probably set the franchise back 3-5 years.

It definitely feels like an “anything to get rid of Tebow” move. If it wasn’t Manning, it would have been something else. That and a true distaste for anything associated with Josh McDaniel. Since Tebow is his legacy, I think they were trying to scrub that from history.

Then I take it back. We don't hear everything out here in Seattle; our media lost interest as soon as it became obvious we were out of the Manning sweepstakes.

I'm glad he was gracious.

Local sports radio talker is upset, said the trade today was blatantly showing they just wanted Tebow out of here, whatever the cost or loss. This is the guy that is the “voice” of the Broncos, radio announcer.

Oh really and you base that estimate on what?

How much of Manning's deal is guaranteed, what is the opt out clause for the Broncos and how much cap room do they still have left for this year?

About 6 mins into the first hour of the program, you will hear him say he was surprised how fast they traded him, and it will give the impression they wanted to get him out of town as fast as possible.

So when they decide they want to get rid of a player they should then wait a couple of weeks just to let the idea steep? Trade offers don’t tend to get better over time, you’ve got about a 72 hour window where the real offers are made, then things dry up because nobody believes you. Meanwhile the free agency period is flying by and you need to figure out if you’ve got that salary to spend elsewhere or not. Yeah they wanted to get him, and any other player they decide to get rid of, as fast as possible, that’s called running a business.

I am not saying who is right or wrong, just what was said. I think they probably traded him right away to get Denver and fans past the talk. Americans have soundbyte memories. If the process would have lingered, the talk and frustration would have lingered. I think they also traded him as a last memory of Josh McDaniel. Erase that history from everyone’s minds and memories.

Well, it’s about 20 million for this year. If he puts up decent numbers they’ll be stuck with him for at least one more year or look incredibly stupid for signing him in the first place. They will not win a Superbowl. They are a couple years away from having a good defense, they have an aging running back and average receivers. Mannings stats against the AFC West are the lowest vs the other divisions, and he’s 9-10 in past playoffs. Maybe if he was 30-32 it might have made sense but 36 years old and after multiple neck surgeries. Bad move. They would have been better signing Jason Campbell who is only 30 and good insurance against Tebow failing, still leaving a ton of cap room to sign more players.

Before Manning signed, it was 70-1 for next year. Now it is 10-1.

I’ve seen odds as 7 to 1 for Denver to win the superbowl next year. Lots of suckers out there. I doubt they win their division this year.

Especially considering all they need to win the division is for Tom Brady to go down.
