He's 9-9 in playoffs...... he's .500 in postseason...just like Tebow is.

Doesn't bother me a bit.

We instantly become better on both sides of the field.

Wait the Broncos are being rumored to have interest in a top 5 all time QB, and there are fans that are upset? Last I checked the Broncos didn't have a lot of passing talent at the QB position... This would be awesome!

this is gonna be interesting to see if Manning does sign with Denver, does it quell Tebowmania or make it swell even higher?

so if i understand this logic correctly.

people in favor of this move believe:

1) Manning is the one piece we're missing that gets us back to the SB
2) Manning is perfectly healthy and there are no worries about his multiple neck surgeries
3) Bowlen is willing and able to pay Manning a fortune to come here
4) Denver will be overflowing with rainbows and unicorns if this happens
5) the only people against it are Tebow fanatics who really aren't Broncos fans and can go to hell anyway

people not in favor of this move believe:

1) Manning is old
2) Manning is hurt
3) Manning is too expensive
4) we are much farther away from the SB than just 1 player
5) building through the draft is the only proven method for getting back to yearly SB contention
6) Elway, Fox, and Xanders were being truthful last year when they said we were committed to rebuilding through the draft and going back to being a run dominant team

i ask everyone, which group is basing their opinions on established facts and which group is indulging in speculation and wishful thinking?

offseasons on the OM really suck. i'm sick of all the unnecessary drama. every year for 5 or 6 years now, the offseason has been a trainwreck for this organization. i hope Manning signs with somebody else quickly so we can put this silliness behind us and focus on making some real improvements via the draft.

It is a short term fix that financially straps the club when it comes to addressing the multiple areas of need we have. If we were one player away from being a sb team I would think differently but we're not and Manning is old and brittle. Franklin might just get him killed blocking the way he did last year.

The media has certainly been beating this Tom-Tom the last two weeks. According to them the whole league just "wants" Peyton.

Madden Football, Battlebots anyone? Just toss a guy in and that's the ticket, apparently. And that little matter of can he throw like a legit qb...a hothouse guy that doesn't play good in the elements. Just sayin'.

Sides, where be the Tebow freaks? Headed for the hills already?

That mve brought temporary relief and long term misery. Did we learn nothing from Shanny or have we changed our minds about free agenting our way to a title?

also,

"top 5 all-time QB" is more accurately written as "old, hurt, expensive QB who put up his stats in the overly pass-friendly NFL era while acting as his own de facto OC".

The Broncos roster is "loaded with talent"? :say what:

Seriously, if EFX try to sign Manning it will prove they have absolutely no ****ing clue what they are doing. Period. Not than Manning will have any interest with our lack of offensive talent or good offensive coaching, but that's neither here nor there.

Exactly as much as I like Tebow he cannot become bigger than the team.

I would guess he wouldn't publicly wine, because that is not who he is but I would hope he would embrace the thought of playing behind Manning.

can't believe we have clowns on here that think signing Manning would be a good thing for a team that only recently accepted the fact that they needed to rebuild via the draft to fill positional holes all over the roster and to add much needed depth.

The Broncos will sell Manning on their top-ranked run game and stable O-line. Trust me, Broncos are SERIOUS players in this.

That neck is going to be a $20 million gamble for somebody. I rather it not be us.

He flew into Miami right after the news conference. He already has a home in Miami. Miami has good weather, good defense, decent running game, and likely Wayne would follow him to come back home to Miami.

I don't see how adding Manning and drafting well would hurt the team.

Tebow won his first playoff game and gets zero credit. Sad stuff.
His first playoff game was 19-16 loss to SB runner up Titans.....

The media is creaming at the prospect of a Manning vs. Tebow news story and even Schefter isn't above spinning some **** to move copy. So there's that. The boys in Bristol will make damn certain this is a news story come hell or high water.

Well lucky for us we don't have a OC so Manning would be OK here.

It's not even a short-term fix (unless by "fix" you mean flashier passing stats that don't translate into more wins). Dude is on his last leg, and will be out of the league in a year or two. Meanwhile we'll be giving up on the first QB to take us to the playoffs in six years, and who is young and developing mind you. Seriously, this is the kind of move only short-sighted football execs make, and that type never succeeds long-term.
