Tim Tebow’s brother Peter happy to see Peyton Manning, Broncos lose

peter tebowThere are some members of the Tebow family who still haven’t gotten over the Denver Broncos trading away Tim and signing Peyton Manning to replace him.

Tebow’s brother, Peter, tweeted after the Broncos lost to the Baltimore Ravens in the Divisional Round of the NFL playoffs Saturday that he was happy to see Denver lose.

He also seemed to mock Manning in a tweet sent earlier in the game:

Tebow took over as the Broncos’ starting quarterback last season and led the team on an improbable six-game winning streak to help them reach the playoffs. He threw a touchdown pass in overtime to help the team beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 29-23 in the Wild Card round. Denver was hammered 45-10 by the New England Patriots in its next game.

Despite winning the playoff game and leading Denver to the playoffs, Tebow was dealt after the season. The move was controversial because many people found the team’s treatment of Tebow to be disrespectful.

Although the Broncos’ season ended in the same place both seasons, it would be nearly impossible to say that Denver was not better off with Manning. Don’t bother telling that to Peter Tebow, though, who clearly is having his moment of schadenfreude.

    I am a Tebow fan.  I believe in his character and his ability to lead.  These are the things that set a professional athelete apart from all the talent out there.  Football is a team sport and it takes a leader to win. I think he can lead a team to play their best.  Tim has stayed above all the nasty petty remarks being said.  So, I think his brother’s tweet is low class.  Peyton Manning is one of the best quarterbacks to ever play the game.  I would never wish him to lose even if he did take the place of my favorite quarterback.
