Manning’s In, Tebow’s Out? What’s Next For Tim Tebow
Now that Peyton Manning’s move to the Denver Broncos is set in stone, (or ink and paper, as the case may be) the question now is this: what’s going to happen to Tim Tebow?
Although nothing has been officially announced, it’s a near certainty that Tebow is out. Although both Manning and Broncos’ owner John Elway were singing his praises, and both agree he’s a stand-up guy, chances are he’s not going to be a factor next season.
I think Tebow’s problem is that his immense popularity is outshining his actual playing ability, which puts a lot of teams in a peculiar position. In the eyes of a lot of teams, he’s not good enough to be a quarterback, but he’s too popular to sit out on the bench. Tebow’s still pretty young in his career, though, so it’d be great if could get signed on with a team and an offense that he could learn from, like Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, for example. And if that doesn’t work out, a team could always use Tebow’s popularity to “put butts in the seats,” so to speak.
So, will a team come along and pick Tebow up, or will this prove that the old adage, “nice guys finish last,” is true after all?
