even Vic Lombardi giving credence to these rumors has already got to be starting some problems for the club. if i was Tebow, i wouldn't want to hear this. some of the young guys in the locker room might not want to hear this either. we only just got over the Orton/Tebow issue.

if Elway is leaking this stuff to Lombardi, he really is an idiot.

I hate it that people are saying that our #1 ranked running game is going to be a great draw for Peyton. We were only #1 because Tebow was the QB (aiding the run game both with his own legs and also by drawing attention his way, thus leaving gaping holes for the RB's to rush through).

Without Tebow as the QB, I doubt our run game is even in the top 10!

It seems like a great opportunity for Tebow to learn from Manning and then take over again in two years time.

Why would he have to be traded?
Did you forget what this team and fanbase was like while Tebow was holding a clipboard the first time? You think even Manning is immune to that?

It would be more trouble than it'd be worth, and when Tebow's contract was up he'd be gone. They'd have to sell 'high' now and avoid all that mess.

True.

If I was Tebow I would've told Elway to ****ing do one a long time ago, I guess Tebow's just a nicer person than I am.

Well yeah, it's Peyton Manning, not Kyle Orton.

I really can't believe anybody would honestly think Manning and Tebow would work somehow on the same team. I just figured it went without saying.

Some intangibles to think about, would Peyton want to go to an NFC team and in doing so hinder his little brother's chances of getting to a 3rd superbowl, or would be rather stay in the AFC and face him in one. Just a little snippet from my pocket of irish drunk knowledge. Although many see Washington as one of the favourites I dont see Peyton wanting to play against his brother twice a year. Maybe I'm wrong though and time will tell.

If he comes here though I will seriously feint and as much as I love Tebow the player, he'll never be half the QB Peyton Manning is/was.

They went to the AFC Championship game. The Chiefs NEVER go to the AFC Championship game.

Absolutely it's possible. I don't want to get into "probable" yet, but it's beyond probable that Elway is interested in Manning. Why in the world wouldn't he be?

I think it shows exactly the opposite. John Elway has again, and again, and again made good moves since he's joined. You're trying to say that landing the biggest free agent in the history of free agency is a sign that Elway isn't qualified? lol

This is why John Elway is an awesome VP.

He wants to win, knows how to will and knows who will win for him.

Go out and get your players, don't worry about the fans and media reaction.

If the Tebow fans can't handle Tebow training behind Manning, then it's simple: trade or cut Tebow. Eliminate the distractions to the goal. This team is about winning the Superbowl, and if John Elway brings Manning to Denver, he'll be putting an exclamation point on that fact.

Manning just needs to believe the Broncos are a GREAT QB away from the SB. If Manning is this big egomaniac alot of clowns think he is, then maybe his "ego" would lead him to believe that he could be the great QB to get Broncos over the hump....

i'm saying that barely 1 year after publicly and repeatedly announcing that the team was finally rebuilding via the draft, it would be idiotic for Elway to abandon that process just because somebody waved some shiny beads in his face.

it has nothing to do with Tebow either. let's say Tebow retires tomorrow so he can build orphanages in Africa. even if that happens, it's STILL a bad idea to throw the rebuilding plan out the window, pay Manning $20M+ or whatever the hell asking price he wants, and then try to cobble together a team using what's left of Bowlen's reserves being spent on free agents in the hopes we can get to a SB in the next 2 or 3 years. we have tried that. it doesn't work. i re-iterate. IT DOESN'T WORK and that's why we're in the mess we're in now.

if all this was happening back in 2006, that would be a different story. but it's not. it's happening in 2012.

I genuinely thought it would work. I'm not sure why it wouldn't. You just bench Tebow. He'll go along. The fans will go along. Tebow in goal line, Tebow trains as back up. Manning's never had a good backup anyway, so I don't see why Tebow couldn't back him up. If Tebow gets shipped out, it's most likely as a backup for some team anyway (for now).

But with Lombardi throwing it out there I guess now it's kind of out there.

And yet anyone who shows reluctance in believing Tebow is the answer is automatically labelled a hater...

If Manning were worth a damn the Colts would have kept him. They're committed to rebuilding without him. We should be too.
