I guess the same thing if we don't sign him, and Tebow stinks....we draft our new future QB in 2013.....isn't that plan you guys said we should follow?

This made me chuckle on PFT

The Broncos interest in Peyton Manning makes a lot of sense. If anyone can heal Peyton’s neck, it’s probably Tim Tebow.

You're right. I questioned that as soon as I posted it.


That Jets game just sticks out like a sore thumb.

Adding Manning does not effect rebuilding through the draft.

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.
Why the **** would he embrace being relegated to backup after leading a ****ty team to an unlikely resurgence and playoff win? Does not compute...

I believe the chances of Manning going down injured at some point in the next year far, far outweigh the chances of Tebow stinking the place up next year.

My concern is zero about Tebow and 100% about mortgaging thr franchise for a vet with a gimpy neck.

Because hes smart and hes got a lot to learn still. He obviously needs a lot of work in the passing department.

I just love the way FOUR SURGERIES ON A NECK are blown off...each surgery reducing mobility in the upper body area. Who needs to throw! Clearly reputation wins super bowls now.

Peyton (turns to center to call signals)

Lock...KLICKKKKK....

Been in ONE SYSTEM his whole career, almost unheard of. Stable Colts organization with coaching staff.

On the Joe Montana stuff, I love the revisionist history. The Chief players at the time were pissed so much attention was given to Joe...that was the year they switched NarrowHead to grass so the old man could land softly. They got to the championship game with ol' Joe (of course, they made the playoffs the previous year but the media conveniently forgets this too). Last time I checked, he was knocked out at the 50 yard line. Do-de-do.

And those of you worried about a mobile qb...just imagine the fun of seeing Peyton avoid a rush! Ichabod Crane never looked so sexy.

It didn't work because we drafted POOR. We don't have to trade draft picks period lol. We can sign Manning, hit on one or two draft picks and become a better team. Pretty simple. We can not sign Manning and hit on picks and still get better. How is that you ask? Because we are still adding more talent!

It seems to me you think we are years away from being good, I don't.

but manning comes with conditions. one of those conditions is that you start adding players now so that he can get back to the SB ASAP. that means a bunch of other FA signings and trades that cost draft picks. Bowlen is not made of money either. so yes, it very much does affect your drafts.

According to him signing Manning means we have to trade all our draft picks for some reason.

Tebow was drafted and is our current starter, so yes it actually does. If we sign Manning, Tebow is done in Denver. And people who think we are going to develop Tebow, playing behind his polar opposite in style mind (who plays in his own custom offense by the way), are clueless idiots...

...isn't that the goal? With Manning, we'd be alot closer to winning it all over the next 3-4 seasons, let alone this one.

I hope Tebow will stay and learn from the 2ndGOAT while also being taught on the side by GOAT#1

if not hopefully we can trade him for some nice draft picks.

we are years away. don't you recall that report on our roster posted here several weeks ago? we are lacking several true NFL caliber starters and missing a ton of depth. wishful thinking doesn't fix those problems. time does. i agree that poor drafting makes everything much worse, but how many 1st and 2nd round picks do we have in the next 3 years? 6 unless we got some from another team that i'm not aware of (i don't follow the draft that closely). so it'll be 3 years just to fill those starting positions if everything goes perfectly. once you start trading your picks, you make things harder on yourself.

If you think that Tebow would need to be traded because of Manning it helps our rebuilding process. You know cause we are getting more draft picks for trading Tebow. Hell Manning and a extra first for your boy Tebow really improves this team.

Yup, 9-10.

Basically, anything Errand says, assume the complete opposite. As once again he is wrong.

Many of the fans on this board need a lot of work in the basic reasoning department.
