Tebow was a problem. And Manning fixed that problem.

But that's only 1 position fixed. Although it's the most important position, we still have other important areas that need improvement.

Actually if Manning puts up that record (or any record resulting in a worse finish than last season) I'm gone from pro football entirely until Bowlen no longer owns the team. Can't find the post, but I still believe what I said then. There is only so much money and attention I can allow myself to waste on an owner who keeps making the same mistake every 2 years for the last 14, going on 16.

The bet DBag must have been referring to (I have the DBag on ignore) is that Tebow will start more games over the next two years than Manning, as I was unconvinced that Manning had fully healed from his neck injury and that with our line he wouldn't survive long anyway. Still not very convinced, given what I've seen.

Anyway, that just means I'll have to find another place to talk about politics, MSU and the Detroit Tigers.

That and you thought Denver wouldn't be a top 10 O and Manning isn't a top 5 passing QB in the NFL. ****ing dumbass

Still not convinced Manning is healed and our OL is better with Manning then it was with Tebow. Good thing my bet didn't include the CFL starts Tebow will have.

Saturday: Can do.

Elway: Welcome to Denver Jeff.
Saturday: Glad to be here.
Elway: Glad to have you. We wanted to bring you out here to let you know we don't want you to play for this club. You're not Bronco material. Now **** off. MUA HA HA HA HA

I'm claiming that if ever there were a FA Manning could land it would have been Jeff Saturday.

Jeff's own words explained "the broncos didnt want me" he said he didn't feel the love from the broncos like GB. In GB he's the first choice. In Denver he said they wanted a different direction being first choice.

Has nothing to do with Manning has to do with Saturday not wanting to sit behind Walton.

Elway: We would like to come in and help Walton and be a back up
Saturday: No thanks John I think I still can start and play
Elway: OK Jeff thanks for your time

Manning: How did the meeting go Jeff?
Saturday: Well Peyton the Broncos want me more as a mentor and a back up for Walton while the Packers want me to start.
Manning: Do what you feel is best for you Jeff.

But putting aside semantics, there were some quality teams on the schedule. As it happened, they didn't go to the playoffs because it was an odd year, but the Chargers were good. The Bears had a playoff caliber D, just lost Cutler. But that 18-24 finish Tebow had against them was him coming alive against an elite defense. The Jets barely missed the playoffs and had an elite defense. Any win over the Raiders is a good quality win, even though they haven't been in the playoffs in a while. The Dolphins were playing good defense last year.

You play who's in front of you, and you can't win them all. Pittsburgh was a quality performance against a quality team. Threw the ball well. He showed enough -- the kid's got game. Just needs to find another ride.
Putting aside semantics.....the Broncos beat one team with a winning record last year in the regular season. And Kyle Orton was our QB for that game.

Manning landed us Clady, Walton, Beadles, Frankling, Decker, and Thomas. With Tebow they didn't exist.

RaiderH8r- We might be a better team, but we are still not good enough. I am not sure trading for Manning will be worth it after all is said and done.

Dbroncos4life- Manning makes us better

Raiderh8r- I never said he didn't

This is a dumb distincion because "Didn't Want" is basically synonymous with "Didn't Want to Pay for"

If Jeff volunteered to play for league vet minimum to follow Manning, he'd be a Bronco right now, NQA. Green Bay offered him more money, AKA "Wanted him more" so instead he's in Green Bay.

This isn't difficult.

Manning also resigned Joe Mays. He was gone until Peyton started pounding desks. And since we know Joe reads the OM, he read all about how having PFM would make defense so much easier because they'd be sitting on 28 point leads every game.

Again, I'm not arguing any of that. I'm arguing that 1. Denver was interested, at least to some degree. Enough to bring him out and 2. If there is any player in the mix that Manning could have had an impact on signing it would have been Saturday. If playing with Manning were the be all, end all DB4L is making it out to be then it wouldn't have mattered to Saturday what Denver's plans were. He would have put all of that aside to play for God, Country, and Manning. Obviously that didn't happen. Players don't pass up self interest in favor of playing with certain players. Doesn't happen. Yet DB4L would have me believe that players do indeed pass up self interest to play with Manning. I hope that's true because I'd love to get JJ Watt in here next offseason. I bet Watt requests a trade to play with Manning.

Raider claims Denver would be better with Tebow and used the money spent on Manning for other FA's.

I claim no FA was coming to Denver because of Tebow. Is that clear?

I think there's some lost in translation here. I re read his post and he's stating Denver wasn't as interested(which means less money and no starting position)

His argument from the outset has been that players came here because of Manning and has yet to back that up. If his argument holds water the one guy, Saturday, that Manning reached out to would have signed in Denver. Saturday is about the best case scenario to support DB4L's argument that Manning brings players to Denver. If this were true Saturday would have come regardless of the pay or situation because playing with Manning is really what motivates players to sign with a team.

What you do not know is Manning has a bad case of planters warts on the back of his hands and Saturday did not want to risk butt warts.
