This would be so awesome to land Peyton Manning. It would put us into position to continue to rebuild much needed areas and yet put us in position to contend.

If I remember this right I saw an NFLN graphic that said Peyton had 19 playoff games but only 9 playoff wins.

Are we able to make a run now, or do we need to wait until FA starts?

Funny you turn around and ask that question.

Doesn't really matter when you're talking cap space. And the end result is his former team getting a #1 draft pick instead of a Lombardi Trophy.

Ummm no. I will take the 3 starters we can get for Peyton's salary instead.

I have seen this show before and it is called Joe Montana lands in KC. That show was a suck fest.

Funny enough, Manning in his first playoff game got destroyed by the Jets, 41-0. Colts fans weren't stupid enough to want to ship him out of town.

Tebow won his first playoff game and gets zero credit. Sad stuff.

Sources telling this here sports guy that the Broncos are among 10-12 teams calling about Manning. In fact, they've already the call.

The Broncos will sell Manning on their top-ranked run game and stable O-line. Trust me, Broncos are SERIOUS players in this.

Lastly, if the Broncos do indeed win the Manning sweepstakes, Tim Tebow will be traded. I'm told there's no way they will co-exist.
I'm for it if Tebow hangs around.

Seeing as that won't happen I'm off the train. Bringing in a 36 year old with SERIOUS health issues and dumping your possible future is one of the dumbest things I could think off. What happens when Manning goes down week 1...

Manning - 14 of 31 for 137. 2 INT's.

Ouch.

if this happens, it'll be Elway's doing and it will show that Elway really isn't qualified to be an executive VP in the NFL. no way do you back up the brinks truck for Manning at this stage of his career and with his current injury problems AND disrupt the locker room. this team is REBUILDING. signing Manning means that you don't think we need to rebuild and can cobble together a SB contender from free agency. we've been down this road. it doesn't work.

Selling him the run game?

It was a damn gimmick after the first 5 games.

Did anybody really need Vic Lombardi to break this news?

Tebow would be traded before Manning ever signed the contract.

Vic Lombardi ‏ @VicLombardi
The other big advantage the Broncos have going for them - John Fox. Manning likes his style. Manning wants to run his own offense.

Vic Lombardi ‏ @VicLombardi
Manning was very impressed with Fox's ability to adapt to the Tebow offense. Manning is also his own offensive coordinator.

It's a Shanny-esque FA grab. Might as well snatch up Moss too while we're at it.

I don't see why...

Like many have pointed out, even the strongest Tebowmaniacs can't complain with Tebow playing backup to Peyton Manning, one of the greatest of all time.

It seems like a great opportunity for Tebow to learn from Manning and then take over again in two years time.

Why would he have to be traded?

Can we just make it the total Colts offensive package? Sign Manning, Saturday, Garcon, Wayne. Trade Tebow for a pick and draft all defense? I know it's really improbable, probably ridiculous, but does that team compete for a title? I say it does this past year.

because Manning doesn't want to mentor anybody and going into his 3rd year, Tebow doesn't want to go back to holding a clipboard.

even Vic Lombardi giving credence to these rumors has already got to be starting some problems for the club. if i was Tebow, i wouldn't want to hear this. some of the young guys in the locker room might not want to hear this either. we only just got over the Orton/Tebow issue.

if Elway is leaking this stuff to Lombardi, he really is an idiot.

I hate it that people are saying that our #1 ranked running game is going to be a great draw for Peyton. We were only #1 because Tebow was the QB (aiding the run game both with his own legs and also by drawing attention his way, thus leaving gaping holes for the RB's to rush through).

Without Tebow as the QB, I doubt our run game is even in the top 10!
