A couple of years ago, "Barrel Man" -- Tim McKernan -- was dying of lung failure, and he had one last wish. His lung capacity was about 15 percent, but he had to see another Broncos game. Denver owner Pat Bowlen put him up in a suite. McKernan died a few weeks later.

His son Todd said he's sure McKernan would've loved Tebow. He plays hard and doesn't complain. He wins. But Todd McKernan said it's impossible for any Broncos fan not to root for Manning's arrival.

"I'm sad to see Tim Tebow go," he said. "But from a football standpoint, he's a little bit behind Peyton Manning. How do I say this? He can't carry Peyton Manning's jock. It's not very nice, but we haven't had anything close to that since Elway."

last night I watched the History Of the Broncos (up until 2006) DVD. It was late and I was beginning to doze off, I heard the part where Barrel Man says "I'm a Bronco fan for LIFE..24/7 365 days of the year....and I want EVERYBODY to know it" man i heard it and it gave me chills, i hit the rewind button and watched it again.

I miss the Barrel Man. Thought this was an interesting quote from his son and think it mirrors many Broncos fans' opinions who don't spend time on Twitter spamming Elway's account.

I just heard from the cousins of the guys who wear the giant orange pom-poms over their bodies to every game. Apparently, they hadn't heard about the Manning trade because they are actually Teletubbies.

I go into the black hole with bronco gear on. Section 105 every year. With all the Norte sureno violence in the bay area it's far worse to wear a niners jersey in the black hole. They have undercover agents sitting in sections 104-107 now. Back as a kid I got hot dogs and beers thrown at my head.

I seriously doubt even this version of Manning could hold old version of Manning's jock. Everyone here seems to expect him to come in and be like he was in his prime.

I had an old school blue Broncos D jacket back in high school. I went to High School in Bethel Park, PA in 1997. Very interesting week leading up to that AFC Championship game. Also had a McCaffrey jersey. That was a fun friday.

Iceballs to the grape sting, FYI.

isn't the past week clear evidence that 90% of the problem with the OM during Tebow's tenure was not the so-called Tebowites, but was instead the Tebow haters who simply can't help themselves but to obsess about their hatred for Tebow on every thread, in a way that can only be called creepy and deranged?
