You're partly right. We knew the neck was fine what we did not know was if he could still play at a high level.

Yah, it was more about his arm and nerves than his reconstructed neck but still, there was a question as to whether or not Peyton's head would fall off when he got sacked. I'd say everyone was 99.9% sure about the neck being ok physically but only 60-70% sure about the nerves and the arm.

Watching Manning throw the ball in a Broncos uniform is unbelievable luck (yes, pun intented) for us.


And for some of you that hated him when he was a Colts player, now you know.

Don't leave out Hougtam betting me that Tebow will start more games this year then Manning and that Manning will be out of football by the start of next season.

I love all the hindsighting people do around here. Manning was anything but a sure bet, otherewise there would have been more than just a handful of teams seriously interested.

It was a bold move to sign him and the rest of Elway's signing's have for the most part also be excellent, but like anything, just as easily could have flopped. What I like about it is the common sense approach, not just the names of who's brough in, like signing a veteran center when your starting center has struggled, bringing in guys like Stokley etc. that know and are comfortable with Manning and can help others along with the new offense.

Although I personally didn't like the Fox hiring, it certaintly seems that he was the right guy to correct the course and seems to know how to coach players like Manning, when to step in and when to step back, i.e., just being a guy exercising his years of experience and managing people. And possibly could get us a Super Bowl out of it.

Handful of teams? KC, Cards, Miami, San Fran, Jets, Tenn, and Denver of the top off my head expressed interest in Manning. That is 7 out of 31 teams (Colts cut him).

Plus, the interested teams had to have the cap room to have a credible shot. Basically, every team with an even remote shot of getting him was interested.

File this one under "no brainer."

Seattle, Washington, Philadelphia, even some rumors with Houston and Dallas..

There was speculation that 14-16 teams seriously inquired, many wanted to remain out of the spot light for obvious continuity issues within the team.
