There have been many QB's to not win on teams more talented than this, but how many did win on teams that were less talented?
Not to mention Manning's days of carrying a team appear over, so he will need some better players around him, which the Broncos still need to acquire and doubtful all those pieces happen this offseason no matter who plays QB. If this franchise hadn't wasted so many draft picks the last 10 years, maybe things would be different right now.

I think his list should look like Houston, SF, and AZ.

Huge cap room, easy division and a coach and VP that will do anything to make him happy.

Peyton wins super bowls any time he feels like it. He just only feels like it once every 10 years or so.

And a fan base that has ripped apart every Bronco QB since Elway. Yeah, real enticing.

Exactly. If Manning can make chicken salad with this team, why wouldn't the Colts just keep him and win more Super Bowls? Even with that cap number of his, they'd still have more talent than us. Maybe they think Andrew Luck gives them a "better shot."

Plummer, Griese, Cutler, Orton, Tebow, and Brister.

I guess you can take Phins out of the running then for that reason. They have ran 15 QBs out of town.

Manning also happens to have a home in Miami, not Denver. I doubt Miami fans have acted like some Bronco fans, especially around here, about its QB's. Again, all I see is hope offered of why Manning signs with the Broncos and no realistic reason other than he will draw all of this great talent to the team despite apparently having to "carry" the Colts and not drawing all of that great talent there. So the Broncos would like Manning. That means he is coming to the Broncos?

So it's better WE sign a QB to big money who might never take a snap?

The Colts are in a situation where they can sell suckage to their very small crowd of fans, they get to save 28 million dollars which is huge for a small market team, they pick up Luck and have effectively a 2 year mulligan to fix the rest of the team before anyone is going to complain. The only way they can screw that up is hanging onto Manning, bringing back the pressure of winning now in a weak division and delaying the development of Luck.

After the Packers dropped Favre he went to the conference championship game in his only healthy season, it made sense for the Packers do drop him but he was still capable of winning games, Manning is younger than Favre was, less erratic, has less mileage and is not as many years removed from his best performances as Favre was. Manning if healthy will be a force in this league for another at least 3 years.

Or is only one good hit away from retirement? Or neck stiffens up from playing the cold?

The funny part about that list is that Plummer and Tebow are the one's who catch the most crap for not being able to do this or that, but they are the only two to win playoff games since Elway.

We are a bad fanbase when it comes to QB's but I doubt that the Phins fans are kinder to that trash they have brought in over the years.

Yup. I says we spend 100 million if need be. Elway knows some of the old Colorado Crush dudes who work down at the carwash nowadays. They'll play for Old E 40's if need be. Then we just gotta get Marvelous Harrison's crack dealer to get him outta bed and we're golden.

Brady's gonna **** his pants when he sees some of the players Marv springs on bail.

The worst thing for them is that they blew it when they had the chance to sign Brees. They will never let Ross forget about that. Heck...I bet Ross hasn't forgotten it and is one of the reasons of why he will throw as much as possible to Peyton.

If healthy. He isn't though. So much so that the Colts didn't choose to keep him over an unknown rookie QB.

The Packers were correct to get rid of Favre, and I don't say that in hindsight. The way he was jerking them around year after year, and with a 1st round QB collecting dust, it made perfect sense.

As for Manning, he has that injury baggage that you don't gamble your franchise's future on. A healthy Peyton Manning stays with the Colts, with or without that 28MM number, so it's not like he was gone either way. So I ask again, if Manning can turn the Broncos into a consistent SB threat overnight, why wouldn't the Colts keep him and ride out the rest of his career? You can't use the injury excuse, but ignore it for this team.

He can throw as much at him as he wants, other teams can pay him more and Denver is one of those teams.

Because they weren't going to pay him 28 million dollars and Andrew Luck 40 million. Duh.

Oh, look who crawled out. Maybe you have more time to do your silly negative rep crap, threatening violence and getting banned some more. Grow up or better yet, get a job so you have something else to do than act like a juvenile on internet forums so someone, anyone can take what you post even remotely seriously and can think of you as knowing something for a change.
