Guys like Tulloch/Lofton would've been a huge upgrade to our largest area of need. Then you have All-Pros who are the tops of their positions in weak areas for Denver with Carl Nicks and Reggie Wayne.
You could've gotten all three of the above AND Michael Bush for Peyton's price tag.
To me, Peyton is the GOAT and I've defended him against accusations of:
- ****ty teammate that throws his OL under the bus
- Only wants money
- Can't win the big one
...but I can see the Devil's Advocate argument for sure. Especially at this age. We don't have time to gel. A QB who's closer to 40 than 30 means "Win now" and we're still 2-3 regardless of how rough our competition has been.
If you think any legit
WR or TE signs here with Tebow, you are crazy. I could see a RB or OL given the running game we had.
Nearly all of us wanted a MLB. I would say that the $4M/yr they gave Mays would say that the $5.5M/yr that Lofton and Tulloch got wasnt out of the price range (ie due to Manning). They just thought that Mays was a better value... and were DEAD wrong
