You want to trade our promising 24 year old prospect for a guy who's likely got a year or two left, and won a single title in 14 years. With a team that was built just for him over many years.
John Elway was 38 when he retired.

He played 14 seasons before getting one...

Elway rteh suxorz!

Elway played in a different era though... I wonder if he could survive that long in this era especially the way he played... Manning also doesn't have Elway's mobility nor did Elway have Manning's injury history.

I wonder if it is even wise for Manning TO play in this era with his neck issues and lack of mobility...

Elway never had four neck surgeries in a single year for the same issue. Signing Manning is a risk. With a pretty high reward ratio.

Yeah, and he had to have his best team ever (by far) to get it done.

You couldn't have just airlifted him to another team and picked up your Lombardis wherever was most convenient.

It's a big process. The likelihood of getting it done in a year or two is pretty remote.

Me neither...but the Tebow circus would get annoying to Manning and the FO really fast. If they could get over that inconvenience, and Manning tutor him yes (not like Painter) then yes.

I still think the negatives outweighs the positives.

I don't know how much Tebow can improve his game. I think Tebow is best in a school yard offense not a structured pocket offense EFX wants to run. I also doubt FO will go hog wild and add weapons like NO GB Det does imo Tebow's best chance is that scenerio not skimp on talent.

You made it sound horrible that he only had 1 Super Bowl win.

Answer this.

Does Peyton Manning improve this team (more then Tebow)?

I've answered that like 6 times. Manning is a short-term improvement.

But he's not the answer.

We'll see.

I think Manning goes to Miami or the NYJ, with Arizona being an outside possibility. Miami and Arizona have pretty good offensive pieces. Wayne will go where Peyton goes.

Denver's pass blocking leaves alot to be desired. Our starting WR's are talented, but raw. We dont appear to have the middle of the field option at TE. We also lack speed at RB.

It would be interesting to see how Denver would draft and approach FA if they do sign Manning, but his coming here has to be a fairly slim possibility.

Thanks.

Can we stop beating a dead horse now? John Elway does not think Tebow is the answer either, which is the reason he is looking for a new QB.

We're improved short term 2-3 seasons, which is a blessing. This gives us time to continue to add talent to a young football team.

We all could die in 2-3 years. Better to enjoy the present than worry about the future. Besides, we'll have 2-3 years to prepare for the Manning era to be over with. We'll be fine.

Totally wrong approach. Ask the Vikings.

I heard on the radio they're quoting sources that have it down to us and Miami. Whatever our chances are realistically this is fun.

Peyton Manning makes any receiver look better. Remember 2 seasons ago when Austin Collie destroyed us? Thank Manning (and possibly our ****ty team).

I'd feel much better knowing I was going to Heaven when I die, though.

Can't kick the savior to the curb and not worry about dying.

I tend to erase Bronco-Colts games from my memory. I am aware of them, but it maintains a dreamlike contact high quality then a hardcore memory.

I can tell you Denver's starting lineup from SB32. I cannot tell you the same from 2003 or 2004 WC games.

It also would restore our rep if Manning came here. I expect him to be a Dolphin though.

The point is where they are now.

And once again, these Broncos aren't those Vikings.

All you have to know is Kelly Herndon and Lenny Walls.

We'd get more interested players at a better price if by very slim chance Manning would come here.
