Broncos replace Tebowmania with Peyton Manning at QB

Eventhough Tim Tebow brought nationwide noteriety to the Denver Broncos last season with his inspiring, miracle play at quarterback, reports out of the Mile High City kept saying that owner Pat Bowlen and front office executive John Elway were not sold on him as their future leader.

As soon as the Indianapolis Colts cut Peyton Manning, the Broncos name came up.

The Broncos now have Manning as their starting quarterback.

Contract details have not been announced, but there has been an agreement in principle that he’ll be playing for Denver in 2012.

The other teams in the Manning sweepstakes were the 49ers and Dolphins and Titans.

With the signing of Manning, there is no doubt that Tebow, the team’s first-round pick in 2010, will be traded.

Manning missed all of the 2011 season due to rehabbing from a series of neck surgeries.

Without him, the  Colts went from being one of the best NFL teams to the worst and it cost head coach Jim Caldwell his job.

The Wright State Raiders traveled to Detroit to play the Titans in a Horizon League without two of their key guards.

Head coach Billy Donlon, with a young team, says that there are plenty of games left in the season and the team needs Julius Mays and Vance Hall back to near 100 percent as quick as they can.

Wright State did lose at Detroit, 69-53 to fall to 9-12, 4-5 on the season.

Mays, the team’s leading scorer and junior, is the only player to average double figures in scoring at 13.4 points per game, suffered a strain to his left Achilles tendon and calf muscle on January 8 against Valparaiso. He played in two games last week, but left the game against Wisconsin-Green Bay briefly after aggravating the injury in the second half. Mays did not practice all week.

Hall sustained a concussion during practice last Thursday when he fell to the ground after grabbing a rebound. He averages 4.5 points and 20. 4 minutes per game with nine starts.
