The Denver Broncos are reportedly in the mix for free agent quarterback Peyton Manning. Well they are complete fools for doing so.
The Broncos already have a young quarterback that has a lot of potential in Tim Tebow. He is a quarterback that proved last year that he is a deadly runner and with a passing game that is starting to develop.
In 11 starts Tebow threw for 1,650 yards with 11 touchdowns and 6 interceptions. The key part is that is impressive is the touchdown to interception ratio as most quarterback in their first full season as a starter are usually a 1:1 ration in touchdowns to interceptions. What Tebow’s ratio tells you is that he understands the mental aspect of the game and that the only thing holding him back are mechanics.
The good thing with mechanics is that they are easily correctable and Tebow already showed that he is a hard worker as he improved his throwing motion. Tebow coming out of college had a long windup windmill motion. Even if he still has it as long as Tebow keeps working on that eventually he will fix it.
Manning on the other hand is going to be 36 years old this month and is on the downside of his career. Also, Manning has had three neck surgeries in just two years. On top of that he still isn’t throwing the football like he used to, and may never will.
In the end, if they knew what was good for them they would stick with Tebow.
