Tim Tebow-Peyton Manning billboard and poll: The Chosen One the choice?

Categories: News, Sports

Who's your pick?
Remember that billboard last season urging Broncos coach John Fox to play Tebow? Well, it's been updated. This time, the sign asks folks to vote for who they'd rather see at quarterback: Tebow or Peyton Manning. And at this writing, Tebow is winning.

The billboard directs folks to OneSwoosh.com, hyped as "A Simple Way to Search...With Only One Swoosh!" But its physical location is outside Multiline International Imports, at 5786 Logan Court. Multiline employee Mohammad Suleiman says debate about which QB should wear orange next season inspired the new electro-placard.

The original Tebow billboard.
"We've had customers come in and say they're pro-Manning," Suleiman notes. "So we thought it would be interesting to see what Denver has to say about it."

The complete results won't be released until Monday, March 12 -- but as of moments ago, Suleiman says "we've probably had 60 percent pro-Tebow and 40 percent pro-Manning." And that's fine by him. In his words, "We're definitely pro-Tebow. We cast our votes for him."

Of course, there's no guarantee that Manning would ink with the Broncos -- although the Denver Post has just cited two sources who say Peyton will be in Denver tonight to meet with John Elway.

"I think it's all talk for now," Suleiman maintains. "But you can't rule out anything in the NFL."

What do other locals think? Fox31 has been asking Facebook users to weigh in, and thus far, the Tebow lovers predominate. However, there are plenty of Manning fans, too, and some that fall somewhere in the middle.

Consider this note: "Peyton Manning wants to play for a contending team sorry Broncos fans. By the way Tebow blows rod!"

That's splitting it right down the middle. And now, for more signs of the times, check out our top ten pro-Tebow, anti-Kyle Orton billboards, as created last year by Westword art director Jay Vollmar.

Keep Tim Tebow. Manning is at best a 50 50 winner in the Superbowl and in 14 years he only went to 2. There is no guarantee that he can take Denver to the Superbowl. Tebow played in the SEC and has better numbers in college than Peyton or Eli who also played in the SEC conference in college. I think give Tim Tebow time and he'll shock the world like he did last year. Like Deion Sanders said Tim Tebow can go to the carnival and throw the ball and never hit the target but he will be the only one walking home with all of the prizes. The dude is a winner regardless. Mike Singletary said it best I WANT WINNERS! I'M NOT A MORAL VICTORY KIND OF GUY! Herman Edwards said it best YOU PLAY TO WIN THE GAME! Vince Lombardi said it best WINNING ISN'T A SOMETIME THING, IT'S AN ALL THE TIME THING! TIM TEBOW IS A WINNER! WHO CARES HOW HE WINS, THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT HE WINS! END OF STORY! BUT JOHN ELWAY WANTS A FANCY DANCY GUY WHO ONLY WINS 50% OF THE SUPERBOWLS THAT HE'S IN AND HE GOES TO THE PLAYOFFS AND WINS THE DIVISION EVERY YEAR BUT CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO BEAT A 3-4 DEFENSE. SAN DIEGO, NEW ENGLAND, PITTSBURGH TO NAME A FEW TEAMS THAT ALWAYS WHIPPED HIM. Peyton is a flashy thrower but not a serious WINNER. Nope. Ben Roethlisberger isn't flashy but he's been to more Superbowls and WON MORE SUPERBOWLS AND HAS A BETTER WINNING PERCENTAGE IN THE SUPERBOWLS AND PLAYOFFS THAN PEYTON MANNING. Substance beats style. Peyton has style but not substance.

How about Manning being hired as the QB coach for the Broncos to teach Tebow everything he knows?  Tebow will become our excellent QB & Manning can continue to excel without taking a chance on further injury--a WIN-WIN solution!

Teabow is young and a winner.  Manning is at the sunset of his career.  Who knows if he could play after getting a couple of hits.  Tebow deserves more than Elway.  Just because Elway was a good QB does not mean he is a good manager.  Go Tebow.  You would be so welcomed in Jacksonville.

No one can say Manning isn't a great football player. Anyone can see that and knows that (even if you aren't a football fan). But to see what Tebow did for/with that team is amazing and should be recognized. Sure Manning would be great as QB but what do they do in a few years when it comes time for him to retire? Or even now, one hit and that guy could be DOWN and out for good. He's had neck surgeries therefore most likely isn't the spring chicken he used to be. If they take Manning I heard they'll want to trade Tebow. If they do that 3-4 years from now (or even sooner if Manning gets hurt) they'll be right back to square one in trying to find a QB. If they take Manning I think they should also keep Tebow. Give the guy some time, he's young and is clearly willing to learn. I just think its kinda sick THIS is how they are "thanking" him for taking that team to the playoffs, by maybe trading him for a QB (through good) at the end of his career.

keep Tim Tebow ,Elway wasn't a super bowl winner the first few year's either give him the tools he needs to better himself in the position. A well know statistic is Peyton is nearing the age for retirement  as far as a quarterback goes ,Elway how old were you upon retirement? think long and hard pal not mention what you will be paying Peyton if he can even play can you say stupid!!!

Please keep "Tim Tebow" as the Broncos quarterback!  I am  sick of big stars coming to Denver  and not giving what the team already have.  A player who is on the "Super Star" starting line!  Keep Tim Tebow!!

Manning v. Tebow? No contest, unless you(e brain dead. MANNING is the MAN whether you love Tebow or not.

 The healthier the athlete, the better the chances are to win games.  I wonder which health insurance company would take the risk of insuring Manning.  What do you think?
