ESPN reports that Peyton Manning will be going to the Denver Broncos and that Tim Tebow will be traded.
I’m a fan of Peyton Manning, and I’m glad for him and the Broncos. But it’s still a sad story for Colts fans. I was in Indianapolis over the weekend. While driving into town, I passed a billboard with a picture of Peyton Manning on it and a short sentence: “Thanks for the memories.” I got the distinct feeling that the folks in Indy are still grieving their loss.
It’s also a sad story for Tim Tebow. Tebow took a Broncos team that was going nowhere, led them to a string of wins including a victory in the first round of the playoffs. He brought a winning spirit to a down-and-out team and became the 2011 sports story of the year. It was an unlikely run that none of us will soon forget. I hope Tebow lands on his feet somewhere with a team he can win with. I like the idea of him going home and playing for Jacksonville. We’ll see.
Tebow did so much for our team. I really hope we can hold on to him as he is a class act. Also he named his dog Bronco so he has to stay 🙂
Nate, I’m skeptical as well. But that won’t change things for Tebow. He’s lost his job with the Broncos. I hope they trade him. It’s the only decent thing to do.
ESPN is saying that the Broncos will try to trade Tebow: http://espn.go.com/los-angeles/nfl/story/_/id/7709195/2012-nfl-free-agency-peyton-manning-picks-denver-broncos-tim-tebow-traded.
Timmy will land on his feet, where ever he goes.
