PM hasn't scheduled titans workout yet, and then I assume a week of bidding wars will go on. How long can we afford to wait?

we can't afford to wait more than another week. if we sign him, the wait will be worth it.

It's never too long.

The only way we're a legitimate contender is to have someone like Peyton Manning at quarterback. Elway knows this. Anyone who really knows football knows this as well. You wait however long it takes. If it doesn't work out, you turn your attention to the draft and keep trying to build from there. Building a strong team is important, but none of it really matters until we finally find a real answer at the Quarterback position.

this could go on for another week or so depending if any of these "hidden" teams come out and throw their names in the mix..

the bidding process started a week ago. you don't think PM wasn't getting bids all week long.

They will sign him today or cut bait. They will make him an offer he can't refuse , and if he does refuse it or ask for more time then the sale never gets done.

Elway is a car salesman. The push today is to close the deal. Hes got the finance manager (Xanders), Service dept ( Fox) and everyone else needed
with him. If Manning doesn't sign today Elway knows he is looking at other models and brands and is going to leave the dealership without a contract.

This is about making the sale. The offer might be good till Sunday but there will be a short time limit..

and if Manning can't make up his mind this is really only about the money. Screw him.

Yep. We're at the end of this auction. Only newbies and fools stand around raising bids by dollars. Fish or cut bait.

I believe this is why Elway took the whole crew. Sign, or don't sign.

Great point. They brought with them others to talk contract as well and not see him throw the ball around. They would rather get a deal done today than wait for the Titans to be the last team to see him throw and talk contract after that. The last team would have an advantage.

I also think if we don't sign him today, it's over. A week of chasing is good enough. We've shown him everything we've got, and how badly we want him. If he's just doing this to have his ego stroked or drive the price up (I don't think either of those things is true), then it will continue into next week, but i think Elway walks away from the table before that happens.

Either way, I think it's over today.

I wouldn't be shocked at all if it's another full week before a decision.

Like Hyman Roth said, "I'm going to go take a nap. When I wake up, if there's a suitcase sitting on this table with two million dollars in it, I'll know I have a partner. If not, I'll know I don't."

For as far as I'm concerned, the wait has been too long already. I honestly hope Peyton signs with Tennessee. We saw just how it went for the Colts after the BS in his contract about taking all the first team practice snaps. His sabotage of, and the coaching staff's negligence about, his backups are the reason the Colts pick first this year.

Not to mention the massive unholy con job he also pulled on the Colts by signing the huge contract without telling them about the impending neck surgery.

If he signs with Denver, I'll still root for the team colors and organization, and I'll cheer for the happiness and success of all the other Broncos. But cheer for Peyton Manning?

Never.

I'm not quite that ambivalent towards him , but I agree he is a class A a-hole.
If we give him significant jack ( over 18 mill yr) we are probably going to regret it. The pursuit should end today, and if it doesn't then our FO are idiots.

He may improve our chances , but I don't think it is nearly as much as most do.

And there are loyal current Broncos that are taking it up the rear for this jerks games. FO needs to stop and think about what that means too.

Mortenson said he will likely sign next week. A lot has happened since ties were officially cut with the Colts. Manning wants the process to be thorough. That is why he chose to throw for the suitors. So the Broncos can build there defense through free agency while waiting.

I don't think signing Manning or not signing Manning has anything to do with the Broncos signing defensive FA's. Maybe it has something to do with offensive FAs, but not the defense...

I do wish the Broncos would sign Tolbert already...

Round 5 of draft. All prior picks will time out! But it is all part of the plan!

I think it will probably wrap up by next Tuesday.

By then, we should be able to re-sign our own free agents for a big discount, since it will be clear that no one wants them.

Edit: Nfl.com just reported that Manning has told teams he will decide by Monday or Tuesday.

A week. Which it has been. Make the decision or get bent.

I think we are getting screwed. Its been too long for my liking all ready. Its frustrating watching all these players that would look good in orange and blue sign elsewhere while we wait for Manning

i think the existance and the emergence of a "mystery team" weighs heavily against.

if i put all my cards on the table and then you pull out a mystery ace, then i'm thinking "is this on the up-and-up??
