Wednesday Morning (Polls From VA and CT)
This whole Peyton Manning/Tim Tebow situation reminds me a lot of what happened to my Baltimore Ravens in 2001 after they won the Super Bowl. In 2000, the Baltimore Ravens were struggling somewhat winning games and decided halfway through the season when they were only 5-3 to replace their starter, Tony Banks, with Trent Dilfer. Trent Dilfer came in and went 7-1 and then rolled to a Super Bowl victory. Sure the defense had a lot to do with it, but Dilfer did his job and won the Super Bowl. Then in the offseason, the Ravens decided Dilfer winning a Super Bowl wasn’t good enough and decided to replace him with Elvis Grbac. To this day, the number of Super Bowls Elvis Grbac has won as the starting Quarterback of the Ravens is zero….
Now the Broncos are about to replace a winning Quarterback, Tim Tebow, with a supposedly better Quarterback in Peyton Manning because they have decided Tim Tebow bringing a team that was 1-4 and winning a playoff game was not good enough. Good luck to them, but do not be surprised if Manning doesn’t win as many playoff games as a Bronco as Tim Tebow did….
Mitt Romney wins big in Illinois….
