You get the feeling that maybe John's surfing the OM, reading bull**** Manning tweets that give him a good feeling which he passes along to guys like Spano (in the strictest of confidence) leading to another round of tweets and another cycle and on and on.

I can't express how funny it is to me that so many Bronco fans are thinking Super Bowl with this dog **** roster, for no other reason than a 36 year old QB with nerve damage.

I would say the opposite.

I would say developing a complete roster with depth and talent and developing your own football players is what it takes to achieve greatness in this league.

Not 36 year olds with neck issues and a **** roster of retreads that wouldnt start elsewhere.

The bottom line on the Broncos’ pursuit of Manning is this: Elway is in charge, and Elway is interested in Super Bowls. The argument that the Broncos improved last year and won their division (on a tie-breaker) with Tebow, doesn’t cut much ice with Elway. He knows what it takes to be a Super Bowl contender and he believes bringing in Manning is the fastest way to get there. He knows the Manning courtship is a high risk/high reward mission. He believes that going for greatness usually is.

Only thing we will win with tebow is most sportscenter headlines for the year.

Are you for real? Last year we accomplished something we had only done once since the the last time Elway played. We won a PLAYOFF game! Your logic is idiotic, what standards did Tebow fallow? Cutler went 2-3 in 2006 (with a really good defense) he then went 7-9 and latter 8-8. Lets not start with Orton! Talking about a QB getting run out of Town 5 games into his career. What a loser you are!!! Last year Tebow 7-4 and a playoff win!!! GTFO loser!!! At least try to be objective like most of the poster here FAG!!! (South Park reference)

This article actually provides a rational, thoughtful, objective take on the situation. Kind of surprising, given a lot of the ridiculous stuff that has been written/tweeted lately...

Even thought it's pretty interesting stuff as a fan, I (and many others) have been obsessing about this stuff way too much for the past few days, to the point where it's probably unhealthy. It's 75 degrees and sunny in the middle of March in Chicago--I'm going to leave work in a bit and go hit some golf balls or something and leave my computer alone for awhile. If he signs, great. If not, life will go on. Either way, there's nothing we can do about it, and we should know within 24 hours.

There, I feel much better now...

Division titles mean nothing especially at 8 and 8. I want title contender and you can't ignore the fact we were 4 plays away from drafting top 10 at 4 and 12.

Klis knows **** all. Tennessee have this in the bag, he'll work for them after his career is over and that's the major selling point.

Tebow was 7-4. Keep holding that Orton decision against Tebow, it shows how smart you are.

8-8... spotted a 1-4 start and 1-4 quality football team.

Don't let facts keep kicking you in the ass, though.

Yeah and if Stokley holds onto 1 pass or Bowe recovers an onside kick, were division champs, Shanahan, Cutler, Hillis et al are still here etc.

Fun to play that game!

1 less win than the SB Champs.

I think it's more likely that the younger pieces on our team improved as the season went on, then Tebow just turned a **** team into a good team.

Yeah! They just all improved instantly at halftime in the Chargers game!

No offense, but the team never quit after the move to Tebow. We were dead in the water at 1-4 and guys bought in. Maybe you werent watching.
