The nation is looking forward to the emergence of the new and improved Denver Broncos, complete with star quarterback Peyton Manning. Columnists everywhere are lining up to predict the Broncos to take the AFC West.
Question: How does Denver find a way to win the division after starting 1-6?
Yes, that's right. They will be starting the season 1-6 and that is only if they are lucky enough to find a way to beat Oakland at home, which they probably will.
This is not to say that Tim Tebow is somehow better than Peyton Manning. Peyton Manning is an uncontested, first-ballot, Hall-of-Fame quarterback. Tim Tebow is a passing fad that will crash and burn before he is cast away into distant memory.
The glaring issue is not with the quarterbacks. It's with the team. This team, its players, and the rest of the nation are all operating under the assumption that this is an 8-8 football team that won a playoff game last year.
They are living the lie and it is going to cost them.
