Lets face it, without Peyton Manning the Indianapolis Colts will be lucky to win five games this season. That is unacceptable. Peyton is the best quarterback in football, but is that team so bad that they are just helpless without him?
Let's face it, Jim Caldwell inherited the easiest job in football: coaching Peyton Manning. Why is it easy? Because Peyton is more or less the offensive coordinator. Caldwell does nothing but ruin their chances, and we saw that in the playoffs last year. Now without Peyton, Caldwell has to actually coach...uh oh.
Caldwell's seat should be on fire, but there is a way to cool it down, and his name is Tim Tebow. Tebow could come into Indianapolis and win more games than Kerry Collins or Curtis Painter would. If Peyton is somehow able to come back this season, Tebow could win them enough games to keep them in the playoff hunt before Peyton gets back.
Even if Peyton does not come back, good luck selling tickets with Curtis Painter. Honestly, the only reason the Colts have not put Manning on injured reserve yet is because they know they will not sell any tickets for the rest of the season if they do. Tebow would bring in ticket sales.
After this season, Tebow could sit back, watch and learn from the greatest pure passer in the NFL. The Colts would be stupid not to make this move.
