Schefter on 102.3 the ticket interview:

The Broncos were not interested in pursuing Manning then something changed in the last couple of weeks.

Manning won't sign before leaving town. He's there on a fact finding mission. There to meet coaches, see the facility. Wants to see what it's like. Expected to visit Arizona as well.

He won visit anywhere he isn't serious about. He's visiting Denver, Denver is on his short list.

Just because Broncos first doesn't mean Broncos are in the lead to sign Manning.

Tebow? Broncos will have to talk about that. If Manning signs he plays every down. There really isn't a spot for Tebow.

They aren't talking contract. Manning is not working out for the Broncos on this visit.

I'll bet he goes to Houston. Just a gut feeling.

How can Arizona, Miami, and Houston be in the mix with so little cap space? What am I missing here? If you look at cap space Denver seems like a near lock.

It's quite possible that he's just using as as leverage against the Fins or Cardinals.

Looks like our "competition" has the following amount of cap space (in millions):

Houston $6.8
Arizona $10.3
Miami $13.6
Seattle $31.5
Denver $48.5

True, but can they create enough to sign Manning and FA's and draft picks? I'd think this would be a big part of EFX's case to Manning. "Look, we can buy you more supporting cast than they can!"

We can always make more cap room as well. I'm sure Bailey would love to help.

Regardless of Eddie's flaws as a WR...he's still a viable threat in the return game.

For those that think Manning being a Broncos isn't a good thing for whatever reason...answer me this....I.m curious because I think if you can sign Manning, you sign him...even at 80% he's better than 90% of the NFL's QB's right now.

How bad is Tebow in the minds of Elway, Fox, etc. that they would go out and try to sign this alleged washed up, injury prone, former shell of himself, big ego,one hit away from a wheelchair, choke artist, and old QB?

How bad do they think Tebow really is if they believe Manning is the better option?

Which means they better sign Manning since they had stated Tebow was the starter going into camp and apparently were not telling the truth, so Tebow is all but gone now whether Manning signs or not.

The good news is Orton will be around in 2 years so we can go back to square 1.

He really has no leverage unless he becomes like Cutler. That just doesnt seem within him though. Obviously, he's gotta be peeved, but he seems the type that'd rather prove people wrong than cry.

We probably don't have a QB, if Elway is going all out on Manning then he needs to give him some talent, you can't waste 1st round/2nd round picks on QBs.

and what happens if we don't sign Manning and Tebow does not develop into even a moderately tolerable QB? Are we any better off that way? No.

How about this scenario...we sign Manning and draft a QB next year...he serves his apprenticeship under Manning's tutelage for the next two years, and by the time Manning does retire, we have his replacement. Is that not a plausible scenario?

Is it wrong that I hope we don't get Manning just to avoid the inevitable Hotrod poll that will end somehow with me, Bacon, ball bearings and a gold lame thong and Spider in some way? darn it.

This, dude.

Tebow knows what's going on. He shouldn't get butt-hurt that we entertained a Manning offer.
