I'd say enough to upgrade a decent defense into a great one.

Just curious, but without looking it up, tell us who all these people are/were. List their names. I know errand probably has it bookmarked. I just don't remember it being more than 2 maybe 3.

I'm a draft guy. I prefer my team home grown as much as possible. 2 high round running backs? Brock? That's three spots there to shore it up as well.

I find it funny that *some* people who were so gung-ho about keeping Kyle Orton starting QB over Tebow now blast people who were wrong about something/anything else. Meh, if you don't think you've ever been wrong, or will be wrong in your life (even just about football) maybe you should seek some help.

So you're advocating the saving of free agent money by not signing one of the very best quarterbacks in the history of the game in order to spend it on draft picks you can't even come up with names for while claiming to have won an argument in which you've provided nothing but vague suggestions and idealistic proposals.

Gotcha.

I guess I'm the only one who watched the last three regular games of the 2011 season. You know, the ones where Teebs went a combined 30 for 73 in passing and we lost by a combined 48 points? Teebs went 6 for 22 against the Chiefs in that final game. What was Elway thinking going after Manning?

I was at the first game you're complaining about. To anyone who really watched, it doesn't fit your narrative. At all.

Did you have a point? 3 good drives to start the game against the Pats and Elway wasnt justified to go get PFM??

You should take a page from Agenemnon's book here.

I didn't post a narrative. I posted the numbers. I'll leave the "narrative" up to you.

The narrative is a kid with little experience had two awful games. Preceded by a decent one and followed by an epic one.

Erratic yes. But that's often the name of the game with young QBs.

Gotcha.
I won the argument (which was "hold off on proclaiming anything at this point ") in epic fashion when I used a little known thing called....


Ready?



.....facts.


Then I trolled all the idiots who tried to revise that post and attack me because, hey if you beat em and they are too retarded to notice, might as well have some fun watching them dance.



Then you asked me a legit question and I answered. So that is a separate discussion.

I am not an armchair gm. I like elway and I love Peyton manning. I was for the signing you dip****. I didn't like the price. But it's not my checkbook. I didn't like trading away a promising first round draft pick qb for drafting another.

So once again, reread my first post, watch the ass whooping and then read my responses.

Then we will talk

Technically, he hasn't paid him 90 million yet. But who's counting anyway?

I have no idea where you come up with that stupid ****.

1. They don't owe him 90 mil. They can cut him at the end of the year if he gets hurt. They even have insurance out on his contract. Terrible argument. No reality based facts and an intended manipulative distortion. Epic fail.

2. Nobody thinks its more important to have a great D than a great QB. It's not even worth the 10 minutes it would take to pull together the stats to shut that one down. It's tribal knowledge at this point that great QB>great D. Not as epic as above, but a pretty bad fail. I mean, just stupid ****.

In short, you're dumb and I win.


How ya like my pimp hand, b****?

I didnt know Elway paid Manning 90 million for the 2012 season.

Keep punching your keyboard Mongo. We want to see more chunks of stupid fall out.

Where did he pay $90 million to not win a playoff game?

IIRC, and maybe I'm off, but I seem to remember that figure was for 5 seasons. 4 of which have yet to be played.

If Manning plays all 5 years of his contract, and the Broncos with Manning starting still have not won a playoff game, your position would make sense.

As for now, the Broncos spent about $18 million on the QB position on that contract to not win a playoff game.

So I'd say you come up with this **** the same place most **** comes from - right out of your ass.

Do we really need to start digging into Ortboners past in order to reveal that this whole thing is just a super-extension of years-old butthurt?

It's cute you think Manning will get all 90 million. It's even more precious you're predicting failure and zero playoff wins the rest of his time as a bronco. You throw the word fact out yet cannot comprehend how an NFL contract works. Of the 8 100 million dollar contracts that are no longer active, the closest player to even reach that full amount was Brett Favre at around 55 million. Keep thinking players get the full amount of huge contracts though. Dumbass.
