i honestly think this would be a great pickup for what it would take...hes a vet...hes got an arm(accuracy somewhat questionable) and hes been a starter before....plus he is willing to restructure his deal...considering what other crap is available this might be a short term answer while Brock matures.

Honestly, I'd put Tavaris on about the same level as Hanie.

Jackson actually looked decent last year. He's an upgrade over what we have, for sure. We do need a backup that can step up, game manage, and not lose us games. That said, it looks like we're gonna go with Hanie, which is a big mistake IMO.

There is absolutely no reason to trade for a QB. And certainly not one as crappy as Tavaris Jackson.

The team is ****ed if Manning gets hurt for an extensive period of time. Like top 5 pick in the 2013 draft ****ed. Tavaris Jackson wouldn't change that. If they bring in another backup, it should be a proven game manager.

Tarvaris Jackson may have been labeled the worst starter, but he would be a quality backup. He's 17-17 as a starter anyways. That's average for starters and better than most backups would achieve.

Even if the Broncos were looking for a QB, you could just wait a week or two and someone of that caliber will likely be cut from somewhere.

That said, I could see the Chiefs making a trade and penciling him in as their starter.

"Pennies" are too much to pay for Tarvaris Jackson... I'm not convinced he'd be an upgrade over our 4th stringer (Weber).

So you think Weber could start 34 games in this league for teams like Minnesota/Seattle and still win half his games?

To clarify... in Denver, behind Manning and Osweiler, who will definitely take up 2 of the QB roster slots, Jackson would have an uphill battle making the final roster over either Hanie or Weber with only 2 weeks remaining in the preseason. With such a short time to learn a new offensive system; in competition with one guy who's had a full training camp/preseason and another who has spent a couple of seasons on the practice squad, odds are very, very high that Jackson wouldn't make it through roster cuts. IMHO.

Really? You mean when two starters are finished with a game, one is a winner and one is a loser making the combined record 1-1? I also took that stat to 17 games and it came out 17-17 which is , like you said, the average for starters! Genious! (did you catch that Maners?)


Having fun with you Arkie but you realize that was a "no ****" type of reply needed.

IDK... 8-8 with Tebow. I think this is a 6-10 team with Hanie.

Hanie is actually a better passer than Tebow.

Possible, but I think given the schedule difficulty and lack of depth at RB, WR, LB, and O-line makes this a 3-5 win team if Manning can't go. There just isn't a lot of playmakers at skill positions on offense. There are a ton of question marks (Kuper's health, Demaryius Thomas as a featured receiver, RB depth, Beadles and Walton's run-blocking, etc.)

Let's hope that we don't have explore the possibly of starting Hanie or Brock at all this year.

not with this schedule. TT offense isn't built to score a lot of points. our defense would have to play at a 2000 ravens level of defense.

Me, too!

It is interesting that people here are already looking for another backup QB.

Also, you're nuts to think Hanie would have taken last years Broncos to 6-10, IMHO (hehe).

He is?

Tebow's career passer rating: 75.1

Hanie's career passer rating: 41.8

This team goes 2-14 with Hanie starting all season if they're lucky. And 0-16 isn't totally out of the question. Hanie is beyond terrible...

Dude, he sucks. He really sucks. My wife is a Vikings fan so I watched quite a few games when he was there. Did I mention he sucks?
