It still seems amazing and incredible to me that there are still Tim Tebow fans in Denver that think that the Broncos would have been better off keeping the much-maligned quarterback in light of what we all saw on the field against the Chicago Bears last night. In just one offensive series in the preseason debut, Denver Broncos fans who may have forgotten what a real NFL offense looks like were reminded pretty quickly and completely. Anyone who thinks that Tim Tebow could have gone onto the field and played in that offense that the Broncos showed last night is highly delusional.

The spotlight in Denver is squarely on Peyton Manning, arguably the offseason’s most important acquisition. That makes it easy to forget that the Broncos made a number of key veteran additions in the spring, especially on defense. We heard adding depth at cornerback was a focal point for Denver, and they signed free agents Tracy Porter and Drayton Florence, and drafted Omar Bolden.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Baby steps, not giant leaps. That’s how Peyton Manning is marking his comeback. So, he was glad to get his first game in 19 months out of the way and use it as a building block. Manning was uneven in Denver’s exhibition opener at Chicago on Thursday night even though he didn’t have to contend with Julius Peppers or Brian Urlacher and had plenty of time to throw. His first pass was broken up, his second toss tipped and his last throw picked off at the goal line. In between, there were some very good signs for Manning and the Broncos, including a 19-yard completion to Eric Decker on third-and-17, good reads, nice runs and great protection. All in all, not a bad day’s work. By Arnie Stapleton, AP Writer(© Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.)

You don’t ever want your team to perform poorly but getting all worked up about what your team showed (or didn’t show) in the first game of the preseason is like telling a fourth grader he won’t ever be an Olympic athlete –it’s just too darn early to judge anything substantially.
