Klis: the world wants Tebow; he’s awesome

Trade market would be strong for Tebow

I disagree with the notion the Broncos would have trouble trading Tim Tebow if they land free-agent Peyton Manning.

True, the quarterback spots are filling up. There are way more quality backup QBs available (Vince Young, Josh Johnson, Dennis Dixon) than backup jobs. GMs and coaches might balk at adding Tebow, who plays quarterback along a path unfamiliar to NFL GMs and coaches, and also carries along the distraction of a passionate fan base.

But as we learned from Tennessee’s late pursuit of Peyton Manning, owners have the right to trump the GM and coach.

Tebow, all by himself, lifted the Broncos from a six-year malaise in 2011. Tebow singlehandedly made the Broncos relevant in 2011. Tebow singlehandedly energized the Broncos’ fan base. And Tebow all but singlehandedly lifted a bad team _ NFL worst 7-24 from Nov. 1, 2009 until he got his first start in Game 6 of 2011 _ to the playoffs.

This runs counter to the opinion of people like Cecil Lammey, who wrote: I talk to every team in the league, NOT media guys...evaluators, scouts, front office guys - there's 0 market for TT

But it only takes one team, of course, which is a lot less than the number of people who need to purchase Klis' book for him to ca$h.

I’m glad we had this talk.  Now, vaya con Dios, Brah.

Agree, disagree, just like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter so I can quit my day job.
