I'll be the first to admit that I'm no football genius. I know enough about the game and players to enjoy it and spend some of my hard earned dollars buying the NFL's overpriced licensed sh*t.
But the situation in Denver with John Elway and Coach Fox and Peyton Manning has me straight up pissed off.
Okay, okay, so Tim Tebow isn't the highest caliber quarterback in the NFL. We all know and acknowledge that. Tim himself would readily agree with that. But wait a minute! What's that you say? Yes, yes, you make a good point!
NOBODY was the "best" quarterback in their 2nd year in the NFL. Certainly nobody was ever considered the best quarterback in the NFL after their first 8 games actually ON THE FIELD.
John Elway's ego is splattering its crap all over this deal. He can NOT stand the fact that Denver Bronco fans (which, let's do some math here . . . there's a whole NEW generation of fans in the bleachers who never even saw Elway play) have some serious love for their crazy popular, inconsistent new quarterback. Elway doesn't want ANYONE to be successful in Denver and that is the straight up truth. I hope while he was hanging out with King Douche, Peyton saw what kind of person Elway really is and I hope he saw his future with Denver bright and clear: Elway condescending to Peyton, undermining Peyton's leadership on the field, basically putting it in Peyton's face that it will be Elway's way or nothing.
I think Peyton is a tremendous quarterback. I also think his day in the sun is done. Considering his neck repairs, I just want the guy to walk off the field under his own power without crutches or a walker or a wheelchair. I would hope that he would like to be as healthy as possible and go out on top. He's still relatively "young" out here in the real world. He's stinking rich. He needs to enjoy his good health and his family. I have serious concerns that he is going to set himself up for a debilitating injury that will decrease his quality of life off the field. It's disappointing to see him looking so hard for a new team.
At the end of the day, I want Tim Tebow to be happy. He deserves to be with a team that WANTS him and sees the investment of helping him evolve into a great quarterback is worth the time and effort.
AND I see a Super Bowl ring in Tim's future. But maybe not one in Elway's.
