I understand both sides of the argument but Denver is nowhere near being a mercenary type team
"Best chance to win"

Where have I heard that before?

His neck is f'd and I am skeptical. If he were still a transformative player why wouldn't the colts keep him, trade down and win a few titles in Peyton's last few years? I am not into other people's trash. Especially when they're charging a king's ransom for it.

Because they have the best prospect in many years in their lap.

If they were #2, Peyton Manning would still be a Colt.

How many times do I have to shoot down this moronic argument. Do we have Andrew Luck? No? Would we be required to pay Peyton $28 million up front? No? Did we win 2 games last season? No?

It's not the winning super bowls I'm most worried about. It's the 90% chance we don't. You just pissed away the future to assuage the Indianapolis Colts' quarterback's ego.

And even if the miraculous happened and Peyton won his second title in 15 years, it would still feel pretty cheap compared to growing up with Elway, and finally seeing his dream come true.

Don't waste your breath....they are in love with the NAME. If Peyton Manning was still Peyton Manning, he would have a team right now. How weird he hasn't visited with anybody...

You're right, those 12 teams that called him yesterday weren't actually interested.

Tebow beat Matt Moore, Matt Cassel, Mark Sanchez, Philip Rivers, Christian Ponder, Caleb Hanie, and Rapistberger.

PLEASE elaborate on which one of these QBs is as good as Manning. I am eager to hear you spin this around in your little fantasy world.

He literally got off of a plane in Miami like two hours after his press conference. There are pictures.

You've got your head up your ass if you can't see that he's not the same player he was. Those with the most insight and access cut bait on the guy. Cut. Bait.

If you can't concede that 4 neck surgeries, one of which they tried to keep under the rug, has no impact or is nothing to be concerned about then you are more delusional that the most delusional Tebow fan.

I would be happy if we lost half the fan base. We can afford to get rid of the stupid half. Then we could get back to bronco football, not tebow football.

Philip rivers is EASILY comparable to manning at this point in his career.. Roethlisberger has more superbowls than Manning and his game is more like Tebow's...

That is a PRIME example of why you might be throwing away a more effective player and scheme than you would with Manning...

People also forget Manning's flaws.. he is completely immobile and now an injury liability... I don't think people understand how that might hurt Manning dramatically as a QB...

Fact is if the Broncos some how some way get Manning the only Two teams we have to worry about is Houston and The Pats for a road to a Super Bowl. Plus Manning with this defense and a weak AFC West Division lol at least a 12-4 Football team

The irony here is that is the very reason everything is about Tebow... the team is not good without him.. things aren't going to be any better with another QB... in fact worse because the Broncos aren't built for Manning..

Yeah, the kind of Bronco football we all came to love... Peyton Manning and his anal retentive flapping and waving for 5 minutes before each snap.

Would make Al Wilson proud.

Dude.. what you are missing is it was weak because all the QBs get injured in this division.. let's throw a QB with a serious neck problem and a crap Oline into that. That's precisely why Tebow is so valuable..

I suppose strutting around in underwear while hobnobbing with a pop star would make al Wilson proud too.

Big Ben has had one of the best defenses ever during his run. He is nowhere near Manning in ability. There is literally no one that is not delusional that would pick him over Manning.

Rivers is absolutely not comparable to him. Manning is going to go down as a top three QB ever, Rivers is a good Qb.

That is all. Even if they were comparable that is one guy. You just stretch truths to make it sound like you know what you're talking about.

Let me guess, you're next post will either consist of something about three phases, witch hunts, or straw men.

You mean the defense Tom Brady posterized for 6 TD passes and gave up 40+ points like 5 times last year? That defense that just got older and has huge question marks at safety, cb, DT, and mike not to mention lacking depth? I hope Peyton's neck can handle making 30 tackles a game too.

Face it Tim Tebow is a gimmick QB not a Franchise QB if you don't believe me call John Elway he'll tell you all about it and don't get me wrong i like Tebow but NOT more than Manning thats for sure ****ed up neck or not

A Superbowl win with Peyton Manning wouldn't feel cheap to me. I think we've earned it.

Somehow Elway managed it without looking like such a clown.
