Default Osweiler as Peyton's backup?

Looks like the crew had a private workout with Osweiler. Rest is attached.

He'd beat the odds I guess if he did well. I read something on nfl.com about 6'6 and above Qb's and they ALL sucked.

Ryan Lindley wouldn't be too bad.

QBs nowadays don't really seem to need 3 years to develop, so why not wait a bit?

If Peyton goes down this year, nothing will save us from sucking. So wait a year at least before going after his successor.

Unless we are talking about 5th round or below, then I don't care.

I agree... seems the talk is Osweiler may be drafted in the 2nd round. Not too keen on spending a high draft pick on a QB.

If Peyton goes down there is no Plan B... just draft a QB high next year in the draft.

I really hope we spend one of our later picks on Dwight Jones (NC - WR) as I have watched a lot of him the last two years and he would be a steal. I think he is projected 5-6 round. A Bronco scout in the North Carolina area was at his private workout a few weeks ago so hopefully they are giving him a solid look.

Any QB we draft will be 3rd string. There's no way a rookie beats out Hanie...

I don't know what's worse, Hanie having his highest rated game against the broncos(79) or him having a 41 rating for the season.

I don't see EFX going with a rookie unless they're 1-4 and the fans putting up billboards ... or unless he's a first round pick of THEIRS

And, that was my point. He sucks just enough to not be a threat to Peyton, but has just enough starting experience that Fox would be comfortable putting him in, if needed...

The problem with this idea is that if Peyton misses a goodly chunk of games this year, there's no way we fork over another $40M in guaranteed money. So if we don't draft anyone this year you're looking at starting a rookie with no experience or Caleb Hanie.

I'm not too keen on either of those ideas.

I'll never understand the desire to have great backup QB's. We're going to suck if we don't have Manning. Who cares who the backup QB is then? I say use the pick on a real position of need instead of a guy who is, in all likelihood, going to be average at best.

Elway missed significant time his last year. Jason Campbell signed with Chi before Manning signed, but I'd rather have had him. Though, Hanie's stats in a Martz debacle offense are probably misleading. I'd like to think Den could go 2-2 if Manning is out for a month.

There's a huge difference between a backup and a developmental QB. Hanie is the former, Aaron Rodgers is the latter.

This thread isn't about Manning's backup it's about what happens after he's gone.

They're gonna have to get THEIR guy sooner or later. If they think Osweiler has potential they may as well strike while the iron is hot. Drafting him will require the #25 or trading up in the 2nd though.

This thread isn't about Manning's backup it's about what happens after he's gone.
If they're worried about after Manning before year one of a five year contract then they have their priorities wrong. We need to fix the defense and give Manning more weapons to have a legitimate shot at a Super Bowl before we go worrying about what to do after him. That's been the only option since the minute he signed here.

I wish we would talk to Pennington. At the very least our WRs wouldn't have much to adjust too.

That has more to do with the fact that most tall QB's happen to suck as well as be tall more than sucking because they were tall. If anything, height is a huge advantage; Fewer batted passes, can see over the line easier, etc.

Listening to Mike Klis on 102.3 a few minutes ago. Part of Osweiler's appeal is his age - he's only 21 with room to develop. He is coming out as a true junior (he didn't redshirt). If the Broncos see potential they may be thinking he's the type that could sit a few years, develop behind Peyton, then he'd still be pretty young when Peyton hangs it up.
