And for the record this:
cobble together a team using what's left of Bowlen's reserves being spent on free agents in the hopes we can get to a SB in the next 2 or 3 years. we have tried that. it doesn't work. i re-iterate. IT DOESN'T WORK
actually DOES work. it worked when we had some guy named John Elway. it did not work when we had some guy named Jake Plummer. which one of those two is Peyton Manning most similar to?
yeah, we got lucky with TD and Rod Smith falling into us for nothing, but there are no guarantees in the NFL. but if you get a shot, you take it, because that cuts both ways. for all we know two years from now Manning could have another two rings and Tebow could be out of the league.
