Well at least SOMEBODY is having an exciting offseason. The Denver Broncos just made themselves legit AFC contenders by signing Peyton Manning to become their new quarterback. Financial terms haven’t been reported yet but I’m guessing the number is somewhere between A Crapload of Money and Holy Crap I Didn’t Know There Was That Much Money In the Whole Universe. And just a few scant weeks ago we didn’t even know if Peyton Manning would be able to continue his career. If this doesn’t give Brett Favre the itch, nothing will.
Of course there’s another side to this story that from a media stand-point might be even more juicy than the Peyton Manning angle. The “Oh no, what will happen to Tim Tebow now?” angle. Will the Broncos have to trade him? Will they keep him on the team in hopes that some of Peyton’s QB power will rub off on him? I have this image in my head now of Tebow with his hands in his pockets kicking a can down a sidewalk. Don’t worry Tim, it’s all part of the Big Man’s plan. No I don’t mean God, I mean John Elway. In Denver Elway is God and God is just another deity.
