I was discussing that Manning was meeting with Elway tonight with my wife.
Until the news of the visit I was reluctant to inform her that we were in the running for getting Manning. I didn't want to break the news to her that she was mistaken and Tebow was not as good at QB last year as she thought. First thing she said was, "We already have a QB." I told her that evidently Elway and company don't think we do. She said, "Manning will be 2nd string, right?" I laughed and said, "no, hun". Then I informed her that word is we will trade Tebow if Peyton comes. Then she cried. I hugged her and said that we most likely won't get him. He won't want to play in Denver. She smiled and said , "Well if Tebow goes, I'm done watching football." I know this is not true because she loves it about as much as I do. However, I do think that she will stop loving the Broncos. See she took Shanny getting fired, Cutler leaving, Marshall leaving, McD coming in and getting fired way worse than me. She pretty much stopped caring about them. She would watch with me sometimes halfheartedly, but lost track of players names and her love for the team. Then we hired Elway. She started coming back around to them again. Cussing at Orton with me. Yelling for Tebow. Finally the day came. We danced as Tebow was coming in the game. He almost came back to beat SD. We lost, but exciting as hell. You know the miracles that followed(and the drubbing from Det). There were some losses, but it was fun and the fact that we had a QB just like John in the sense that we would never give up on a game until the final second ticked off was exhilarating. By the time DT was running for our first playoff win in forever, we were holding hands dancing in circles the whole time he was running...and then some. Sure we lost to my son's favorite, NE, the next week, but what a year. Now I have to tell her that her favorite QB and Bronco doesn't like her new favorite Bronco. He wants to kick him to the curb, maybe even throw him out. Not good. I think she may be done with them if this happens. Follow the Tebow train wherever it takes her. I don't know, maybe I'll ride along. Getting kind of old to be jumping on and off trains anyway. We'll see.
