Now 3 years from now, maybe Denver fans will feel how Chief fans felt after the Joe Montana years.. and it won't be seen quite as great.
I don't get how you could assume he won't have the same impact as those other players though. Nobody really knows. All I can do now is judge him where he is right now.
That's what makes them such great pickups.
But I will say this. All of those players had a lot of talent on their teams to help them succeed. I don't think Manning has that much talent around him in Denver as the other players did on their teams.
