While that's true,the rumor is they dump tebow to jax for 3 picks..coupled with this years draft ,going almost exclusively defense,you might have something

Now, what WRs does he want because Peyton's going to need his guys to install his offense. We still need a solid RB alternative to McG in case he gets hurt. Oh, and McG wants a pay raise too so that scenario nets out about an extra $1.5-$2 M/yr. Maybe with Peyton we can make a run at Vincent Jackson but we might need to get Reggie Wayne instead. Either way there's about $5-$7 Mil/yr in that position. If Pey pey wants both Pey pey gets so figure that cost about $12M/yr.

Begin to see real quick that we eat into our cap room pretty fast for a bunch of guys whose best years are in the rear view mirror and we still haven't touched the D side of the ball where we are woefully wanting for depth and starters.

Stay the course, suppliment through FA for starters and depth and draft well and rely on a running game to pound the rock for 60 minutes. If we're going to throw money out there let it be on D and let us get 4 starters for the price of 1 Peyton.

Hey, so all you need is Adam Vinatieri.

Makes sense I guess. I mean why else would the Colts cut Manning and keep Vinatieri.

Since were flingin' around 10s and 20s of millions, let's make a move.

About as many as Denver did in 2010 without Tebow.

It's funny how a lot of the guys arguing against Manning give Tebow all the credit for the Broncos' improvement but won't willingly factor Manning into the precipitous decline of the Colts.

Lol you're the one said Manning didn't win without a great team. Just like every other SB winning QB.

We've all said it's a factor. But trading the future in for a 2-year window requires a high bar.

And for my own personal taste, that bar is higher than a one-n-done playoff appearance and loss to 'Mark "Dirty" Sanchez.

Didn't we tag Prater? Lots of money in kickers I guess but we have Tebow so all is well.

Of course not. He's played 16 games. Who would compare a kid in his first 16 games to a 14 year vet?

But Tebow obviously improved the Denver Broncos. And we have no idea what his ceiling is yet.

Hey, if Vinatieri made Brady 16-6 in the playoffs, I'm all in.

How many clutch game winning kicks did he make? He sure didn't hurt his overall record lol.

The FO doesn't seem to care about where his ceiling. Have they ever done anything to lead you to believe otherwise?

I think they "care", I just don't think they peg it nearly as high as the Tebow fans do...

Let's give him #4. In the spirit of fully turning this franchise into the Minnesota Vikings.

Except with a playoff loss to Mark Sanchez (instead of Drew Brees) to show for it.

They have made no attempt to hide anything. Honestly I think they are creating the PR nightmare on purpose.
