I mean honestly...it's one thing to be critical...it's another to call the entire organization classless because they may get rid of a player you like. The greatest Broncos player of all time has been labelled all kinds of derogatory names by those very people ...and for what?

For acquiring the best FA ever available since Reggie White?

For getting rid of a QB they weren't married to, or saw as part of their vision for this team's future?

For trying to bring back the same kind of excitement he use to create back in the days he was our starter?

How misguided are those that wanted Tebow over Manning? They still defend him every chance they can despite his immense flaws while poo-pooing this current team by pointing out their much smaller flaws.

Elway himself said it best...there are Broncos fans...and then there are Tebow fans. This thread exposed who was who in my opinion.

I love it when people get called out on their $h!t, have no defense, then have the gall to try and point the finger at the person calling them on their $h!t.

Peyton would like to visit actual franchises who have defenses and legit offensive threats.

Wow, you really need to apologize for your idiotic takes. This thread is a whole embarrassment of idiocy, ignorance and rudeness on your part.

The tebowers were in full on desperation. They really screwed up this website when that crappy qb was here. The Jets forum was smart: stuck them in their own little sandbox so they couldn't destroy every thread.

Tebow has earned his shot. If he doesn't get it F the Bronco organization. I don't want to be a fan of a classless organization. There is already too many classless persons playing the sport.



Darn it. Broncos lost a fan.

Thank you for posting that Bombay. Looking at that list I am surprised by some of the names and where they fell on the list.

Also noticing several notable posters who didn't cast a vote..

that's probably true if we give people the benefit of the doubt....however another reason (just as probable given the way the Mane is) might have been they talked about their concerns or just plain trashed Manning and defended Tebow but didn't want their name on the record in case what happened actually happened.

There's also some who wanted to keep both. Or even neither. Those options weren't viable (well I guess neither was), but it could prevent votes.

Not totally on topic, but I am SO grateful the Teboners are gone with all their stupid conspiracy theories and relentless finger pointing at literally every person on the Broncos organization and beyond for every single problem Tebow had.

I wasn't surprised at all.......there were some who chose Manning despite having defended Tebow prior to Manning being released by the Colts, because they're not ignorant to the fact Manning was a huge improvement over Tebow.

The die hard Tebow fans however, did every thing they could to trash Elway, Manning, Fox etc. to defend their boy Timmy.

Touché. And there will be polls and I just don't vote. But as hot a topic as that would have been last offseason, I'm sure the note able absent T posters on here conveyed there thoughts in the thread and just didn't vote.

I voted on a ESPN? poll that I wanted Peyton in San Francisco. With a real defense and running game, something Peyton never really had consistently in Indy, I thought they could have been an even more dominant force....

But... I am ecstatic that Peyton is in Denver and this is a wonderful organization and a really really good young team. I hope Peyton plays out his contract and Denver dominates the NFL. But just by looking at my vote for San Fran people would have been upset, which is why I don't usually partake in polls. It really doesn't give your thought process behind a decision.

Looking at that list I didn't vote but I have always been on board with Manning. I am pretty smart like that.

I must not have seen it because I didn't vote. So I'll go ahead and vote now if you all don't mind.

My vote is for Tebow..............hahahaha, JK.

And I also wanted to get a post in on a thread with over 5000 replies.

Excluding the obvious Teboners like MacGruder, etc., it's not so amazing when put into context. Peyton was a total unknown(to the public) concerning his health and arm strength. It was perceived at the time to be a big risk for the team in terms of money and the "Tebow" backlash.

I did not vote in that poll, and I can't remember why, but I really didn't believe that the Broncos were interested in PM at the time he was cut. However, when he first visited the Broncos, I got real excited because Elway was assuring us that the neck was of little concern and it was just a matter of time.

I do remember wanting the Broncos to try to keep Tebow as a back up, but now in hindsight realize that I should never second-guess Elway again, especially when it comes to QB's. He knows his stuff, and this whole episode is why i am real excited about OZ.

I think Elway may have pulled off another heist with this kid. We'll find out soon enough.
