I was reading this article for the fun of pointing at Tebow and laughing. I am still amazed they won as many games as they did. I figured after the Lions took them apart more teams would follow that blueprint. It seems the Pats did.
Anyway, they mention in the article (and I heard in other venues as well) that they want 2 new QBs in Denver for next season. They want a rookie guy they can develop and a low mileage vet for the backup. I can see them grabbing Stanton for that vet presence. Stanton and Tebow are both mobile and Stanton even adds the QB skill set of being able to complete passes. He would make a decent transition away from the option to a more prostyle offense.
If I were Stanton, it would be a good gamble to make. If you sign with Denver, you have the entire offseason as well as a couple weeks of the regular season to learn their system. Since the WRs only get like 8 passes a game, I figure they will be more likely to want to catch a coupel passes rather than run sideline sprints so you can pretty much work with the first team WRs during practice. It will only be a matter of time before Tebow is shown to be a lucky QB rather than a skilled one and gets benched (I figure a 1-4 start will do it). Then Stanton comes in and saves the day by getting them into the playoffs with another 8-8 division win.
Personally, I would be happy to see Stanton get this kind of shot--especially in the AFC and not the NFC. I think he deserves it for helping us win a couple games.
