How does this possibly make any sense in your brain?

Not trolling I heard those exact words so I posted it.

Jason LaCanfora just confirmed Broncos are players in trying to get Manning and have contacted Peyton's agent about him.

Think about it..... we had Kyle freaking Orton has a starter through camp and for the first 5 games last year....

And we finally make the switch to Tebow, the Broncos need play it smooth just in case they don't get Manning.

I would feel cheated as a fan if we didn't at least explore the idea of bringing him in and I am happy to hear that is whats going on. Plenty of unknowns as of now but you will see more will come out in the week.

Dude, everyone is going to talk to Peyton's agent. Belichick'll probably give him a call just to dick with Manning for fun.

What you actually heard was " Klis thinks the broncos will do their due diligence, and that he (klis)feels they could be the best fit for Manning".

The Broncos brass are not involved at all.

a long time poster at the DPO that has connections at Dove Valley, gave some of us the heads up on Feb 25th. We've been dropping hints ever since.

BTW - Manning is not a good mentor and would not be one to Tebow. He didn't do it in Indy. He insisted on taking every snap in practice. And nobody refers to Painter or Sorgi as Peyton's proteges because he never really cared about teaching them anything.

I'll bet anyone a year long OM ban that Peyton does not end up in Denver.

There is no way that Manning is going to be signed to a reasonable contract conductive with the enormous risk connected to his neck injury and his age. There is going to be some desperate team that loses out on the RGIII sweepstakes and throws a ton of money at him. Denver's not going to be that team. Bring in an inexpensive veteran QB or two and maybe draft a late round project. Let Tebow go into camp and start in 2012. If he sucks, you draft his replacement in 2013.

hey, Mcgahee needs a back up so it's not like Tebow would go to waste.

So he has to play worse than 46 completion percentage?

what makes you think Manning/Teams will wait until after the Draft (last week in April)?

Look we all like Tebow here and we don't have to cut him he could ride the bench but if you would rather have Tim Tebow starting over a healthy Peyton Manning you are no better than MacGruder.

Let's start with not being division Champions and work from there, shall we?
