Peyton Manning outselling Tim Tebow

By Bill Williamson

The Denver Broncos chose Peyton Manning over Tim Tebow and so have NFL fashionistas.

According to NFL.com, the new Denver quarterback’s jersey has been more popular than the former Denver quarterback’s new jersey. From the period of April 1-May 28, Manning’s Denver No. 18 jersey is the biggest selling jersey in the NFL. Tebow’s New York Jets’ No. 15 jersey is the second-best selling jersey.

Denver signed Manning on March 20. The next day, Tebow was sent to the Jets.

The fact that Manning’s jersey is selling better than Tebow's shows substance over style may be winning. Manning is one of the most decorated players in league history, while Tebow has created a stir in the NFL without becoming a true throwing quarterback.

We all know by now who John Elway preferred, and it seems the jersey-buying public agrees.
