Meh. He's looked decent at times, but mostly he sucks. Not like anyone is going to come in for Manning and do anything anyway. Manning's offense precludes that.

We still have to draft a QB, unless Fox and Co. has that much stock into Weber.

I was never impressed with him.

I wouldn't mind him as a #3 QB....but am a little nervous having him as our back up with the uncertainty of Manning's neck injury.

disappointing signing...

03-24-2012, 04:26 PM
This years draft class isn't very strong, so drafting a young QB probably isn't what the Broncos should bother with this draft. I still think Cousins could make a good starter in the future, but he needs coaching with accuracy and decision making. The other QB's figured to go in the 2nd round and beyond just do not look like future starters at all to me.

SonOfLe-loLang
03-24-2012, 04:38 PM
I don't get this at all. Not only was Hanie bad, he was really bad. Other then a few brief decent moments in the NFC championship a couple years ago, he hasn't done ****. Weber has never played, but I'm gonna assume that, at worst, he's a similar player.

What a joke gone bad. You sign an aged QB that isn't 100 % and you need injury protection in his contract, then you trade your promising young homegrown QB that wins games in the NFL for a cheese sandwich, now you sign a worthless POS to backup the aged QB that you admit is an injury risk.

Maybe the presumed NFL Executive of the Year can draft a QB.

Hanie was so bad that Chicago was relieved when a QB, who was out of the league the year before, came in and performed with a 68 rating (because Hanies was in the 40s.). He's a worse passer than Tebow and can't run. And if you start typing his name in Google, the third presented option is "Caleb Hanie sucks". How could Weber be much worse? I hope he signed for the vet minimum

Except maybe Tim wasn't as promising as we thought. Plus, it's anot any aging qb, it's Peyton manning. If he never plays a down for the broncos he was still, to me, worth the risk. If Tebow played similarly to last year, we are a 4-12, maybe 6-10 team. You can only buck trends and the mean for so long

If Manning never plays a down with Denver, then no, it was not worth the risk. It would actually make Elway look like a clown. And to Tebow, yeah, if Fox tried to trout out there the same game plans from last year with Tim, he would probably fail. This organization never once took the time to try and groom Tebow. They didn't want to, I get it.

This is just something we will never know how it could have played out.

Meh. If Manning goes down for significant games or can't return to form the team is screwed anyway. In the event that he misses a game or two, Hanie can be a guy to hand the ball off 45 times and throw a bunch of dink and dunk stuff. The next thing is to draft a project QB like Lindley and let him sit for a couple of years.

Tombstone RJ
03-24-2012, 05:42 PM
he's a back up QB, not sure what kind of QB you all think the Broncos should sign, especially with Manning. Aside from this last year Manning never gave up snaps to the second string QB.

Hanie is what he is but the fact that the Broncos pursued him pretty hard is interesting. Why Hanie? Perhaps it's because the Broncos liked what they saw from him when they played the Bears?

It's been rehashed to death. Tebow needs reps to improve, but he never gets them backing up Manning. End of story. Also explains why Manning never seems to have great backups behind him since they never got reps either.

The Texans made it to the playoffs with the 1st and 2nd stringer going down...
NE won 11 games with Matt Cassel... We need a quality backup just in case. Not having a better backup QB cost the Pollians their jobs. With Peyton it's even more important to have a competent QB. Will his health hold up? This signing means that EFX are confident that Peyton will be back and hold up 110%!!! But still... they should cover their bases... you never know... in pre season.. something like what happened to M. Vick with the falcon's could happen.

you know what I would like to see, the reaction of the board IF Manning wins for us. That would be way more awesome than laughing at another OM Meltdown.

Plus it might also result in a lombardi which again is way more awesome than hoping Manning fails just to see a bunch of football board posters freak the **** out.

correct me if I'm wrong because I can't remember, but didn't Tebow come in and start in week 6? The Broncos gave him the chance to run the base offense and TT sucked bad and the Broncos got destroyed.

then the bye week happened

During the bye week the Broncos installed the new offense to fit TT's style. Isn't this how things happened?

Soooooo, your logic of just changing the offense on the fly if Manning goes down doesn't really work. You can't expect the Broncos offense to just magically morph from one offense to the next and be successful at it.

Manning goes down with an injury, but it's not a season ending injury, it only keeps him out a few games. You can't bring TT in, change the entire offense to suit TT, and then change the offense back for Manning.

does-not-make-sense. Just get over already.

Besides, TT WANTED OUT.

Agree we did need to let him go...but show me proof of him wanting out

I hear ya. That team just came off an undefeated season and lost in the SB. I think if Brady was playing that season they go back to the SB and win. And Manning would still be super bowless.

Youre mixing up seasons. The year the Colts won the super bowl, they beat brady's Pats in the AFC championship.

correct me if I'm wrong because I can't remember, but didn't Tebow come in and start in week 6? The Broncos gave him the chance to run the base offense and TT sucked bad and the Broncos got destroyed.

then the bye week happened

During the bye week the Broncos installed the new offense to fit TT's style. Isn't this how things happened?

Soooooo, your logic of just changing the offense on the fly if Manning goes down doesn't really work. You can't expect the Broncos offense to just magically morph from one offense to the next and be successful at it.

I believe youre remembering this incorrectly. He came in the second half against SD, then the bye week happened, then he started against Miami, Detroit, and then the offense start to shift more towards Tim's style in Oakland.

Anybody think maybe there was no better backup QB who was interested in signing before Hanie? The Broncos are pretty muh screwed anyway if Manning goes down, so is the backup QB no matter who he is really going to lead this team to a Super Bowl?

Nice take Einstein, so is every other team in the NFL if their starter goes down,
fricking brilliant!!

he has NFL starting experience. We could do worse. Sorgi rarely saw the field, with the Colts. Hanie, at least, wouldn't be intimidated...

yah, you are correct. The bye came after Sandy Eggo game, then that great Miami game, then Detroit and then the implementation of the Tebow offense.

I wasn't crazy about this signing either, but I think I understand it after thinking about it. Hanie's best game last year was against the Broncos. It was a game that Martz toned down his ego and played the Broncos game.

That is play great defense, run the ball, and don't let your QB lose the game for you. Hanie played his part to a tee. Marion Barbor made 2 mistakes at the end of the game that cost them the game.

Fox wants his back up to be the Hanie that played the Broncos, not the Hanie that was asked to win games in his other starts.

Ya you're right . The bottom line is that he ended up wanting out, I just wonder if it had to come to that.

I can see the argument that Manning and Tebow are just a bad fit and besides that Tebow is better off in NJC. I hope he becomes something special on the football field cause he a special kind of man.

His character is his teaching. He teaches by example. This is why he is so polarizing.

Hanie was so bad that Chicago was relieved when a QB, who was out of the league the year before, came in and performed with a 68 rating (because Hanies was in the 40s.). He's a worse passer than Tebow and can't run. And if you start typing his name in Google, the third presented option is "Caleb Hanie sucks". How could Weber be much worse? I hope he signed for the vet minimum

He outperomed Tebow when they played head to head...

Get over it man... i am with you in that... but Elway just didn't want the Kid. Just pray that we have a healthy Manning for the rest of his career. We should stumble on our QBOTF... eventually.

I am trying, I just don't know if egos had anything to do with it. That makes me a little bummin'!

They must be 100% sure Manning is good to go, he is a low end #2 qb at best. More like a #3

Meh. He's looked decent at times, but mostly he sucks. Not like anyone is going to come in for Manning and do anything anyway. Manning's offense precludes that.

Only thing I can come up with is after having gone through last year, EFX decided to go out and get a back up they were 100% positive nobody would ever put up a billboard for, even if Manning ends up playing in a neck brace and throwing like Ross Matthews.

I don't see what the big deal is, really...

The key QB on our roster besides Peyton, is not who the back-up is, but who we draft...

Why Hanie?

I like the concept of having a guy with starting experience at backup QB, but surely there are better options.

BR has Weeden going to us in the 4th, but will he last that long?

Any details on the cost of the deal?

We need 4 QB's for camp. I am hopeful Weber might be a diamond in the rough, enough to back-up PM. Caleb is completely useless except as camp fodder.

AS for Tebow I would have liked to keep him around this year as he is still cheap and a backup for PM in case of injury issues - but no way Elway wasn't going to dump Tebow when he got the chance. That said I don't think Tebow was a long term solution - after this year his salary increased to the $7 mil dollar range which is a lot even for a backup QB. Then lets say PM quits after 3 years what do you do with Tebow who hasn't really played? - sign him to a big deal? franchise him? Assume he'd even want to stay after riding the pine 3 years?

We could have kept Tebow this year but I'm glad he'll get a chance to start in NY once Sanchez sucks again. There is no plan B this year, plan B involved drafting a competent QB next year.

I'm hoping they are planning on using him as their 3rd QB, and simply haven't signed the real backup yet. This team with Hanie at QB couldn't win a game to save their lives.

In that case, I approve of this move. Hit a homer with Manning, but if he gets injured we can hit a homerun with Barkley.
