I wouldn't be surprised if Denver jumps high on a QB though in 2014, like what was done with Cutler.
I think Manning's history with Indy proves you are correct in that he wasn't known for being a teacher, he just wanted to win. But I think that Manning actually requested that the Broncos have a plan, that is, his replacement in house as part of the agreement to play with the Broncos. Manning is all on board with the teaching part as he knows his career is at an end, at least, this is how I understand it.
