Call out thread- remember when you said this:
 
I love to go back & read old threads to refresh my memory on what some OM ppl thought of the potential for a Manning signing... Remember when you said this:

Bring in an inexpensive veteran QB or two and maybe draft a late round project. Let Tebow go into camp and start in 2012. If he sucks, you draft his replacement in 2013.

And I don't see Manning being the answer to overcoming the Patriots, at least not for the Broncos, so I don't like our chances of taking it any further.

Seeing as that won't happen I'm off the train. Bringing in a 36 year old with SERIOUS health issues and dumping your possible future is one of the dumbest things I could think off. What happens when Manning goes down week 1...

if we were talking about the 30 year version, i wouldn't say a word. but we're not. we're talking about the 36 year old version that is damaged goods. that's why i'm trying to convince you it's a bad idea. since you can't be convinced, i will stop. if Elway figures out a way to do this, it will come at a very high cost and will not end well. mark my words. i'll pull up this thread in 3 or 4 year's time and rub your nose in it, just like i would a puppy who pooped on the living room carpet. ;)

Through all the talk...it now looks like WAS is not a strong option as previously thought. SEA and ARI look like another strong option. Depending on the amount of money we throw at him I would say we would be his 4 or 5th option.

Either way, John doesn't have the bank to write $20 million checks. I'm not even sure Bowlen does. And to do so with no performance metrics or even a proper workout?
I can only hope our FO isn't that dumb. They do know Peyton just signed a fat new guaranteed-money contract right before bailing on last season... don't they?

Manning won't last a week behind the Broncos line. The run game and defense will disappear without Tebow and you will see this team for what it really is.
Tebow will go to another team with a real coach and will show how great he really use and how horribly under utilized he was in Denver...

They would also have to trade Tebow since that move would signal no confidence in him and maybe have to anyway if just trying to pursue Manning.

Miss I. 10-01-2013 05:11 AM

Dude, it's not like I didn't want him. I just didn't think it was likely. So I was wrong. Going to guess it wasn't the first time I was wrong and probably won't be the last. ;D

TheReverend 10-01-2013 05:11 AM

I was CERTAIN he was going to Arizona or Tennessee.

i4jelway7 10-01-2013 05:37 AM

I thought he was & would be coming to Denver, but then the night before we signed him Shannon Sharpe tweeted that he heard the deal was done with Tennessee & I was heartbroken, then he signed w/ the Broncos :sunshine:

GoBroncos DownUnder 10-01-2013 06:07 AM

Nice work on digging out that many posts!

Miss I's post is pretty harmless, but the ones I LOVE are when people got all uppity thinking Manning was a greedy schmuck, looking for a massive payday!

schaaf 10-01-2013 06:12 AM

I had a feeling the entire time he was gonna end up in Denver. I thought he would appreciate the more stable organization. But if. Would have laid money down at first it would have been Arizona.

Atwater His Ass 10-01-2013 06:20 AM

I certainly thought at the time that it was too big a risk to sign Manning and (oh god feels dirty now) I was totally onboard with the Tebow train after that Pitt game. Even after signing Manning, I thought it would be good for Teebs to learn under the Elway/Manning operation. oh well.

Also, it seemed TEN had the inside track towards the end.

Being wrong never felt so good.

The KO5k and BroncoBeavis guys werent actually Bronco fans, just Tebow cult members who pretended to be

JCMElway 10-01-2013 06:29 AM

Great thread!

GreatBronco16 10-01-2013 06:40 AM

Oh the joys of being a fan and nothing more of a team. As if the call outs and I told you so's make you any smarter with the ongoings of the NFL and it's players.

This is about as bad as the "I told you coverage sacks would increase" thread.

Kaylore 10-01-2013 06:40 AM

I didn't think he'd come here. I thought he'd want to play somewhere indoors or warmer.

GreatBronco16 10-01-2013 06:43 AM

I didn't think we could land him. Oh the horror of me thinking that. I must not be a true fan. The shame............the shame. :(

well I've posted some dumb stuff myself... like not wanting to draft Von Miller... (well maybe that wasn't so dumb now considering his status in the drug program)


btw who is this Gort dude? and did Dedhed get his 1 year ban?

go_broncos 10-01-2013 06:55 AM

Last year..playoff loss is one of the horrible loses in broncos history.
so..what's the point of bumping this thread now.
As far as i am concerned, i will remember the playoff loss whenever i remember manning.

I just hope the team plays well and win SB 48 for the fans.
At that time..it's reasonable to bump these type of threads.
Until that time, it looks silly.

LOL this is a new thread not a bumped one... Silly thread? maybe (aren't they all?) that is your opinion that I don't agree with & quite frankly the historic run & the way Manning is playing... it is worthy of some reflection

Honestly I thought he was going to SF for sure. In my mind there was no way he was coming to Denver, but when I heard I was like holy **** - we've got Peyton Fing Manning as our QB.

But that is exactly what you're doing whether you intended to or not.

Hey I didn't think we could get Manning, and in the very beginning, I really didn't want Denver to go after him. I wanted Tebow to get a full year to prove himself. There was no guarantee that we could even get Manning nor was there one were he would be 100% after everything. Was I glad when we did get Manning? Well yes. Am I glad now? Double hell yeah. Does all of that make me a stupid fan because I didn't say I wanted Manning from the very beginning? Well no. It just makes me a fan.

The Joker 10-01-2013 07:22 AM

I was hoping this would be some if cutthemdown's post from preseason about how awful a team we were going to be this year.

Has he posted since opening week?

MplsBronco 10-01-2013 07:25 AM

Who cares about whether someone thought we could land him or not or whether he could perform once here. Once we got him my take was and still is that the pressure is on to win a SB. Last time I checked, last year was a pretty miserable failure in that regard. Now, I wasn't expecting a SB victory the first year but once you end up with the number #1 seed you better make a deep run. My complaint with Manning has always been his playoff record.

The jury is still out. This season has been great and all so far but really, these gaudy stats are meaningless unless it leads to a SB win. So far, the playoff experience with Tebow vs the experience with Manning is 1000x better.

wrong all I did was re-post comments that have already been posted, not once did I comment on their comments and really IMO if you didn't want Manning you deserve to be called out, so if the shoe fits..

chk the last 14 regular season games... I know what your gonna say we haven't won a playoff game with him... true but you don't get to the playoffs w/o regular season wins & guess what 31 teams don't win the super bowl every year
