Totally wrong approach. Ask the Vikings.

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.

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.

Who have a pretty nice looking prospect in Christian Ponder.

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.

its the NFL. Most teams go from good to bad within a couple years, and vice versa. Some teams can build dynasties, but its rare. Im sure Minn does not regret getting Favre. At all. its a terrible example. Also, its not like we know Tebow will be great. Its very debatable. I like him, but he has to vastly improve.

If we were to sign Manning I would expect us to draft almost exclusively for the offense, or possibly trade away picks to acquire established playmakers. It would probably be disastrous for us in the long-term.

Why? The Colts success this season proved that Manning doesn't need a high-power offense to tear **** up. All he needs is a mediocre blocking back who can catch a check down a declining pro-bowl receiver and a few "me's" in the slot.

Do you mean the Colts' failure?

And if you think, with the way they played last season, that Manning would have made them a viable team, you are hopelessly delusional. They would have been lucky to go 8-8 with him. Very lucky.

Call me hopelessly delusional then. Manning would have had them at 8-8 at the very least. Practically the same roster, and yet a decline all across the board on offense. Same bottom ranked defense Peyton is used to carrying. Yet somehow, over the course of 13 years, he ALWAYS steered these guys to the playoffs. Since '98, just 1 season under 10 wins. Somehow, this team went from 12 of 13 straight 10 win seasons and practically a unanimous pre-season prediction of a 10-6 season from experts to the worst team in the league. That's not delisional, that's just the power of Peyton. He's made so many mediocre players look plausible it's not even funny.

Sanchez has had three solid years of starting, get all the practice reps, all the training camp reps, and his OC is gone now. One tends to think at some point it's over. Feels a little more like "it's time."
