TFD: Will Peyton Manning shove Tebow out of the picture in Denver?

The courting of Peyton Manning starts in Denver, where The Post reports on the Favre-in-Minnesota treatment:

Peyton Manning is in the building.

The free-agent quarterback arrived by Pat Bowlen's private plane about 1:35 p.m. today at the Centennial Airport. Accompanying Manning on the flight in were Broncos' front-office boss John Elway, head coach John Fox, general manager Brian Xanders and offensive coordinator Mike McCoy.

After departing the plane, Manning and the Broncos' contingency set off The Great Toyota Sequoia Chase.

A TV camera-equipped helicopter followed the Sequoia on its slow, short ride from the Centennial Airport to the Broncos' headquarters before the SUV disappeared into Bowlen's personal garage.

What might this mean for Tebow-mania? And would his biggest fans in Denver be able to accept going from a QB with a terrible passer rating to one with the sixth-best rating in history?
