Since they aren't forced to spend up to the cap I agree. I see Xander's pushing the "we feel good with the players we got" angle just like last year. Like thinking Ty warren will be a pro bowler and miss no games.

I never realised that we were struggling that much with money.
I think plenty of us have told you this the past couple of years. You're just too emotionally attached to listen.

Lets see if they make some moves after we lose out on Manning. But doing nothing not my idea of using the cap space wisely. Sure we shouldnt just blow it all but i thought Broncos would go for at least 1 or 2 starting caliber guys.
No way Finnegan was going to play for anyone except Fisher.

Do you know the commitment on our end when rolling over last years unspent cap space? There were some teams that didn't do it. Do we have to spend it?

Titans workout finished. Their GM copied Elway nearly word for word.

Jarvis Moss ahead of Marcus Thomas is a pitiful joke.

That's good because Elway's going to copy AZ's "we tried" statement word for word after Manning shafts him. Plagiarize it forward.

Don't hate me because I am right.

How's our DT situation looking by the way? Are we better? Do we have any depth? Or are we going dumpster diving for trash after the draft...again?

This chase was a bad idea for numerous reasons and the FO's neglect of FA as they pursue their "at all costs" strategy ensures we not only miss out on talent,we aren't even bothering to lock up our own. Forget Tebow, what's that say to Champ? It says either we play to win with Manning or we field marginal talent and hope for big plays while ownership continues to lowball salary while taking in shared revenue. *****.

The likeness to Elway's tweet has to be intentional. Seems a bit snarky, even.

Find it odd that Peyton didn't make the Titans come to N.C., like he did with the Broncos....'comfort level?'

Well Knoxville is 3 hours from Nashville. So not like going from Denver to Aurora for a visit. He also owns a home between Chattanooga and Knoxville. And supposedly it is his anniversary.







Or he favors Titans

Peyton's act is tiresome. First he would have a decision by the end of the week. Then by Saturday. Now, possibly not until Tuesday? Dude needs an ego check...apparently past success is guarantee for all this hype. But he's going into unknown territory. Seriously, all this hysteria over a guy who will be overpaid (yes, overpaid. This is football, not a cancer cure) that no one knows will hold up? And siriusly, I'm so done with all the brainless speculation on ESPN ("What team do you think Peyton will go to?") it ain't a choice of fifty. They say the same things over and over, because this isn't a story until he signs. What if he doesn't look good and it's covered up because SOMEBODY wants a proven qb, even at maybe 70 percent? Risks you run.
