We have a few more pieces needed to get to the Super Bowl. But, without him, we wouldn't make it .

BTW, first post and not only makes thread but poll included. Just the fact he got around the specifics of editting the subject line leads me to believe this is a alternate account. If not, you have balls dude!

Yes at QB position

but, no this team needs more help luck and health to reach sb but, it will be fun and interesting to watch.


Imagine how much easier it will be for FO to add pieces in 2013 and beyond if Manning plays well this year.

I think a few players are curious on how he'll look after a year off and on a new team. Maybe this was why FO made longterm moves this year to actually see how this all fits before they went crazy on adding vets for a legit sb run.

I agree - but to call yourself "josh" is an invitation to your own smearing.

The answer to the superbowl is building the right team. Quarterback was only one problem that we had that needed fixing.

You need to fix the QB first. Once you fix the QB, then you can fix everything else. Fix the source problem, then start working on fixing all the dependent problems/solutions.

Elway believes he fixed the QB, with Manning and OSX. So, is Manning the answer to the Broncos getting to (and winning) the Superbowl? Yes, either directly or indirectly, of course he is.

The best answer I can give you is.... I don't know. But I can say this. The answer is NOT ORTON. The answer is NOT TEBOW.

Personally, I would have been happy to have Tebow at QB for another year to see what develops, but the opportunity to have Peyton Manning at QB is too much to pass up.

This offseason reminds me more of the 03' broncos offseason, and less of the 08' broncos offseason. Does that answer the question?

This offseason vaguely reminds me of 1995-96. 8-8, then 13-3. Older QB with parts on the team but needing rookies and FA's to fill the holes.

So my answer is we'll see.

I answered NO

Adding Peyton to this team does not make it a SB contender. No need to look any further than having DJ playing LB and our inexperienced/injury prone DL.

Will take more than Peyton to get us to the promised land.

I agree. Peyton is a definite upgrade but there's more that needs to be addressed. LB position is now a problem and Ty warren needs to show he can stay on the field.

Sorry, I love Tebow the kid. There is what you can a man! But that guy throwing the ball? I'm tired of watching dying ducks, one hoppers, and two option reads. I know QBs that has the leadership qualities like Tebow don't grow on trees, but I need a little more QB and less middle linebacker.

I think Peyton gives us the greatest opportunity to get to the Super Bowl in the next couple of years.

I look for Denver to be a 10-6 playoff team this year and then foresee Denver going on a 2-3 year run where we challenge for the Super Bowl with a veteran Hall of Fame QB, much like the run we had from 1996 to 1998.

So my answer is we'll see.

I see a lot of similarities as well....I could see us going 9-7 or 10-6 this year and then going on an awesome 2 or 3 year roll with Peyton Manning at the helm.

That would be epic and a lot of fun to watch.

Back then I had my season tickets and lived in Colorado and was lucky enough to go to almost all of the home games during that era.

I've still got my season tickets, but live in Ohio....but I'll fly out for some home playoff games to watch Peyton Manning lead the team to another Super Bowl or two.

Peyton Manning is a roll of the dice, but the payoff is incredible if you hit. From my perspective: The realistic window is two years, if he plays a third I would be surprised. I don't question his ability, I just think it comes down to team performance. If Denver doesn't go anywhere in two years, would he want to keep going? I can't predict the future, but I don't think this is our year. We have a brutal schedule and a lot of variables. Big adjustments and a time to see if some second or third year players begin to progress into legitimate NFL starters.

I think that one more round of free agency and an impact player from the 2013 draft can turn this team into a contender. Outside a few veterans, this is an extremely young team. There are only a handful of true Broncos veterans left, but there is a lot of youth and talent that could blossom. Hopefully Manning's professionalism and love for the game rubs some inner-fire to the bellies of our up and comers. He immediately replaces the leadership void lost with Brian Dawkins heading to retirement.

I'm excited for this year and the future, whether it be with Manning or MacGruder at QB!
