There’s no bigger position in Denver sports than quarterback. From John Elway and Jay Cutler to Tim Tebow and Peyton Manning, the position lends itself to constant assessment, praise, and criticism.
Steve Rushin of SI.com wrote a very good piece on this being a quarterback’s world, not only in Denver, but throughout society.
Quarterback is now the only position in any sport that anybody seems to care about. We’ve spent the entire spring tracing the comings and goings of Peyton Manning and Tim Tebow. Drew Brees was franchise-tagged but might as well have been ankle-tagged, as every quarterback’s every movement is now monitored, televised, tickered and tweeted. How long until each of them is fitted with an electronic ankle monitor upon leaving college, the better to track their actual and potential migrations? Whoever invents it — Quarterback LoJack — is our next Steve Jobs. – Steve Rushin (SI.com)
