I never thought Tennessee had a chance. Looks like it's them and Denver.
I would have guessed Miami or the Cards.
I'm pretty excited about this if it follows through, but we're going to need to get someone for him to throw to.

I'm sure they'll trade Tebow, my guess is Jacksonville. He'll put buts in the seats and they'll let him play QB there. No one expects great football in Jacksonville, so low pressure, low expectations.
Denver is a great fit for Peyton, I think he made the right decision.
You have to wonder what's up in Miami though, spurned by Manning and Flynn, now trying desperately to get Alex Smith.
Peyton didn't go to SF because of the Eli factor I think. With the Broncos he gets to stay in the AFC, doesn't have to play his old team 2 times a year, and doesn't have to deal with Brady 2-3 times a year either. Also he may get a chance to compete against his brother in a Superbowl.
Also where do you get that SF is in a tough division? They have the Cardinals, Rams, and Seahawks, not really a "hard" division as compared to the NFC North, & East.
As a big Tebow fan if for nothing else guts and leadership, I'm all for
Peyton and Tebow being his backup.
And, there's no guarantee that on one big hit Peyton won't be lost for
I think it's the anti-Tebow crowd who expect him to go more than
the pro-Tebow crowd, but we'll know what the Broncos front office
think in the next month or so. Tim doesn't appear to have an ego,
and there wouldn't be a better place in the world to stay and learn
how to be a QB than as an understudy to Peyton.
I think Jacksonville does make the most sense. Gabbert's nothing special worth saving, the owner was flirting with drafting Tebow, and they're so bad that they really have nothing to lose.
The AFC not so much, the Broncos "lost" their way into the championships. The Steelers limped in and the Patriots played a bunch of sub 500 scrubs in.
Fox & Elway never wanted to start Tebow, andn they never wanted to run that kind of offense. They will run him out of town now, with snagging Peyton being the salve on the PR wounds. In my opinion.
With RG3 most certainly a Redskin, and Rex Grossman just getting an extension, perhaps John Beck? There's a lot of serviceable backups out there: http://www.footballsfuture.com/freeagents.html
I'm actually a fan of Tebow, kid has gobs of heart and lots of talent, but he's just never going to be a pocket passer that most teams want. He should convert to RB... I bet he'd have a heck of a career.
of quarterback to a QB looking off the safety and throwing timing patterns in less
than one season.
And Tebow's first season was statistically better than Elway's!
But he has a long way to go as a pocket passer.
This has been a crazy offseason and it isn't even over yet!
