They should keep Tebow-but they won't...now I really can't wait for football season-
Manning could go down, but so could Tebow. Heck he wouldn't have played in the AFC Championship game had we miraculously beaten the Pats. He had a broken rib, a bruised lung and fluid in his pleural cavity.

If you're a Tebow fan this is the best thing for him. If he's gonna improve he needs reps and he may not ever get them in Denver. Miami or Jacksonville are his 2 best bets.

I've read that a couple of places and with his arm, ability, even if he can't throw quite as far as once did, he is better than many QBs that can't or won't throw over 20-30 yards in traffic.

Watching the NFL, even tho they say it is a passing game now, many of the QBs are not great long ball throwers or they try it and bingo, intercepted!

Peyton iss 36 years old with 4 recent neck surgeries, his future performance is unknown at this time.

I would have preferred to see him retire. Goes without saying, he is a student of the game and one of the best, but one good hit and he is out, yeah ok, one good hit and anyone is out, but the risk is higher for him. I only hope that with the new rules and bounty fiasco Peyton can get the protection he will need, I'd hate to see him go out with a bad injury.

Already selling manning jerserys on the website! how strange and exciting at the same time! It all seems so surreal. I'm going to cheer them on as always. No matter what happens. If Tebow was still our QB, I would still look forward to the season and be excited for some Bronco football. I don't have any unreal expectations, I'm just going to root for my team and support them no matter what!!

Really you are asking this question? 36 years old and has had 4 neck surgeries-which by the way if he gets hit a certain way he will be paralyzed? Umm yeah he is a has been..he will NEVER be the quarterback he was

Nearly every medical professional I've heard, along with a few former NFL players who endured a similar procedure (e.g. Joe Montana), indicated that paralysis due to a hit shouldn't be much of a concern. His neck should be a strong as ever. Of course, even players who've never endured a neck surgery could suffer a paralyzing hit.

What's clear, and even Manning has admitted as much, is that his arm strength is not back to 100%. He still needs time for the nerve to regenerate. We'll see how that goes.

So since the Broncos traded Tebow away for a 4th round pick, I say that the Broncos drafting Tebow in the first round was a stupid and waste pick
