^ This.

What makes Tebowners think that Tebow was going to repeat into the post-season again in 2012-13? I could understand their argument if they were to say Manning needed to repeat last year's success with the same schedule/team. But that's not going to happen. What they're doing is setting the bar in such a fashion that they can't lose. Manning doesn't get the Broncos to the post-season? Well, they get to say "told ya so!" Manning DOES get the team to the post-season and into the Big Game? They get to say, "Well, guess I was wrong but at least I get to eat my crow with a trophy on top." Such a joke.

Well it is kind of interesting to see this season. Personally I want to see how this cutler to Marshall is going to pan out. It's football. Storylines all across the league. It's fun to soak them up.

Sorry, but are you insinuating it's ok for the team to spend $90 mil on a 36 year old QB and not make the playoffs?

If manning stays healthy all year he won't be the reason they don't make the playoffs. But the best defensive player missing 4 or more games could be a reason.


To get into the playoffs they don't have to be the best team. Just better than 3 teams. And I'll take Manning being better than Palmer Cassel and Rivers.

He missed 2 last year. And was nothing close to 100% awhile after that. Plus Von got hurt down the stretch. You can do that kind of excusemaking every year.

There's no getting around the fact that this $90 million gamble handicaps the team's ability to rebuild in other areas. They bet the franchise on the short term. Now to lower the bar and say no postseason success is necessary is pretty comical.

I was making a point that if manning stays healthy and plays all year that he won't be the reason they dont make it. Last year losing 3 games in a row and going 8-8 got you in the playoffs. You actually think that resume will get you in this year?

I think they can get in at 10-6. I see manning winning 10 games on this schedule. I don't see tebow winning 10 games on this schedule. You think spending millions on a HOFer(albeit 36 and coming off an injury) is worse than putting a kick coverage specialist at starting QB?

No, but going 8-8 again with Peyton Manning would certainly dispel the myth that the Denver Broncos went from 4-12 (and 1-4) to 8-8 in spite of Tim Tebow playing.

It would establish that the team has other gaping holes to fill, and will develop even more as we get old waiting for the Manning Retirement Tour to end.

"Behind the second-team line, he was under heavy pressure and took off three times on scrambles. On one play, coordinator Tony Sparano screamed for him to throw the ball, but Tebow took off anyway"

That was from another article about the Jets TC practice

More things change the more they stay the same I guess

There are actually some idiots here that think the team is worse off with Manning as our QB rather than Teblow.

Well, that's what happens when they engage in hero worship.....the team is secondary to the player in their eyes.

Your butthurt level is amazing.

Anyone who thinks the team would be better off with Tebow than all time great is a complete moron.

And it would "handicap" rebuilding?

A.) That means you believe ALL success was Tebow's last year (which is absurd).

and

B.) Would mean Denver couldn't offer top tier contracts, which they did with Ryan Clady.

So, I think that's an overall fail.

This team will be better for two years with PM. No question. Just like the 2008 Packers would've been better with Brett Favre.

Sometimes you take the short term hit for long term gain. Other than PM free agency was a bust. All because they were putting every egg in one $20 million basket.

What else did you want to get in free agency? Think this off season is far from a bust, but time tell. Tebow was not going to be the answer here unless we start playing pop warner then we could of ruled the league. This is the NFL, we needed a top tier passer to compete. Our short term is taken care of, and we might of taken care of the long term with Brock. This could turn out to be the best off season ever for the Broncos. Time will tell.

You make this easy. You realize Denver could get out after this next year right?. You also realize in your heart tebow just can't throw to save his life. Have you ever seen any ****ty qb get so much pub for his garbage mechanics and passing? You act like Denver blew draft pick after draft pick for manning. It's quite obvious your a teblower.

Tim Tebow should be in the Olympics, because he doesn't throw the football, he shotputs it.

What was the long term option this year? Sooner or later you'll realize tebow is not a starting QB. Jets realized it after one camp. No manning would've meant a sure 3-5 win season. Barkley sweepstakes.

Good luck selling this whole business as a win if it comes to that. Complete franchise implosion if things go that badly.

I heard this all right up to the draft. Then we were told "Plan B" was a kid who, the best can be said about him "Throws like Philip Rivers." Setting aside the fact that he never won much, has zero experience under center (remember all that concern about NFL pro-style offenses), oh and is noted for having issues under pressure. Win.

If things go so badly as to fall to BrockO in 2013, catastrophic failure is the only thing that could describe this offseason.

Tebow fan from now on for sure. Can't help but root for the guy.
