I'f the minority is NO, I'm in it.
I would not go over 65 mill for 4 years ( 16 each) , and that would be risky. 20 mill guaranteed sounds about right...spread over the entire contract. That eliminates injury ending career thing.

Could have some performance clauses to bump it up. Afc champ + 3.5 mill, Super bowl loss + 6.5 , win + 10. Nothing above contract if less than above achieved. Pro bowl level and above performance expected.

Then again I'm not paying.

I figure the Broncos opened Pandora's box again this offseason, Tebow and his camp are likely butt hurt if we lose out on Manning and I don't see Manning being able to play like he did while still suffering from nerve damage.

I figure once Manning makes up his mind we can move on with our lives.

I just want to see this team get better.

Little for me to argue with here. I might go so far as to say a $0 signing bonus, although I doubt the agents will let that fly. Whatever it is, it should be low signing bonus, mid to high salary, high incentive.

What do you have planned for today while waiting for Manning to sign?

I am sore as all hell after playing yesterday. Had trouble sleeping so I am getting a late start. I actually did some good 1st takes all things considered. It is way easier to practice when you can playback and hear what your doing wrong. Just wish my body could keep up, the whole right side from neck to toe is stiff as a board.

Friday 3/17 plans while waiting for Manning to sign are:
1) Ice/heat/Stretching

2) Watch Anonymous while Iced/heated

3) Enjoy the perfect weather here in Chicago with the kids, maybe take them out to play while I read some more of my Bix Bio.

4) Ice/Heat/Stretch

5) If I can practice and record some more.

6) I have some business stuff on hold that I might knock out if I can't play.

7) Try to find a cheap Traynor Amp online. I just might break down and go cheap with a Fender Champ as I only really want it to annoy the neighbors.

Well, i just googled and found a few - but didn't spend any further research. This is interesting. I think a fuel cell & solar + wind (there are smaller wind turbines:

Seems like with (where i'm at currently) of you "meshed" these together you could create some sustainability. My long term goal, would be to even move beyond the fuel cell (nat'l gas), and hopefully gain a more sustainable platform.

Just think of the possibilities if every house had a fuel cell in it and a small wind turbine next to their satellite dish plus a solar pad or 2? Might still need the grid for large draws but one could flip the electric delivery model making it more distributed than centralized and reduce the need for dependency on coal, oil, nuclear power plants.

This morning I took my 9 year old daughter out to do some pruning of some bushes. I can't handle too much so I had her cutting with the loppers. I thought she would get board and it would take a couple weekends but she powered through. We had 2 sets of bushes we needed addressed. One set I wanted to lower a couple feet since we moved in. Today was perfect, the weather was mid 70's and she kept at it and my back held up so we crushed it today and got the 2 done. I was proud of her and showed her how to use the saw. She cut through about 5 branches that were a good 3-4" round. No complaining or moaning just some good honest work.

Now I am back to sitting on ice, hoping to be able to practice guitar tonight and hoping I am not miserable tomorrow like I was yesterday after playing guitar Friday night.

Sounds like you got a good helper there. Does she do roofing too ? We had some unusually high wind gusts thru my area yesterday, and watched my roof tiles sail down the street. Of course it rained pretty hard shortly after, but I dont see any leaks. Just a couple areas about 3' x 3'..I will find a helper 2morrow to help the cause. I can relate to the sitting on ice paks, as I do especially driving long distances. Bought a couple a time ago at target that are pliable and more comfortable to sit on. I'm anxious to plant some tomato plants here soon !

Sounds like you got a good helper there. Does she do roofing too ? We had some unusually high wind gusts thru my area yesterday, and watched my roof tiles sail down the street. Of course it rained pretty hard shortly after, but I dont see any leaks. Just a couple areas about 3' x 3'..I will find a helper 2morrow to help the cause. I can relate to the sitting on ice paks, as I do especially driving long distances. Bought a couple a time ago at target that are pliable and more comfortable to sit on. I'm anxious to plant some tomato plants here soon !

We had some hail a couple weeks ago and my roof scares the hell out of me. I called a guy to come look at it I am glad it is still intact but there are a bunch of shingles that don't look right to me. It is original to the house about 25 years old.
