The more Manning demands in payment, the harder it will be to give him Super Bowl caliber talent to work with.
This team has tons of holes. And Manning's still more worried about making more than Tom Brady than winning a Super Bowl.
The longer this drags on and the deeper we fall into free agency I fear you may be right. I initially thought this was about making a push for one last ring or two with his old Colt team mates and going out on top. As teams play the waiting game as he gets courted by more and more crazy old dudes with money its becoming clear this is a sham about a huge payday. If the PM fiasco fails I think John and Pat close the wallet and save cash for a run on a big QB next year. Its clear John has his heart set on a pocket passer with more traditional talent and either way tebow is eventually gone.
