Default ESPN Reports Broncos hopes of landing Manning have deminished

If valid this is a sign that we wasted all of FA doing nothing to get better. Mood around the Broncos kind of feels like the Cardinals did a few days ago.

http://espn.go.com/blog/nflnation/po...ed-comfortable

Peyton Manning worked out for the Tennessee Titans in Knoxville Saturday morning and general manager Ruston Webster issued a short statement afterwards.

"This morning we traveled to Knoxville and had a workout with Peyton. I thought he looked comfortable throwing the ball and we had a good visit. This is another important step in the process."


Indications again seem to be that the Titans, San Francisco 49ers and Denver Broncos are competing to sign Manning, who’s now expected to make a decision early in the coming week.

The arm and health issues we thought would be a big deal for teams clearly have been addressed to the satisfaction of all three teams.

One report out of Denver, however, said the Broncos now have diminished expectations about landing Manning.

I like how the Titan GM mimics what Elway said. Classless subtle cheap shot.

They're managing expectations ahead of Monday's final failure. Nice work ladies.

Our crew has been made a laughing stock as they desperately chase their prize pig while ignoring the rest of the farm. The crash to reality is going to hit them hard and then someone should be fired.

There have been too many of these "speculations" out of the media. I'm going to wait for Monday, and a real announcement. Frankly, I don't think these media aholes have a clue what's going on.

Hell, they had no clue about the Niners.

Xanders has been around more than a year. And he is just a failure at life. His only useful purpose is to be fired in situations like this.

It was Mike Klis and he never said the team. It was very generic.

At this point, I wish Bowlen would just sell the team and we start over from the owner on down. The city/fans deserve better than this BS. This franchise has become a joke and the only thing that semi put us back on the map was Tebow who has been lodged in a tug of war measure by whether the FO loves him or hates him, depending on the week. It appears like hate on my side.

Regardless of what happens, it was worth the shot. I'm pretty convinced this current team, with a few key free agents, is still a 6-10 team. Peyton would have changed that. Hopefully we get him, but regardless, it's worth the shot

You sir, need to take some time and reflect on what is most important in life.

Bowlen should have have walked away when he walked into the draft room last year......

They stole that from the Denver Post. The Post was talking about how excited the FANS were when they heard about Bowlens plane, and then how the FANS optimism diminished because of the news the 49ers were in the mix.

The national popularity of Tebow has definitely ratcheted up the focus on the Broncos, and created a whole lot of hysteria, but many teams have found themselves in this situation in the past, with a great college QB who has difficulty transitioning and learning the skillset needed to succeed in the NFL. I guess McDaniels was lucky to drop this last bomb on this team before ducking out the side door. He doesn't have to take the fall for it, Elway does.

If there's one thing that is blatantly apparent, you need a franchise QB in this league. Who is Shanahan without Elway? Belichick without Brady? If Elway doesn't believe Tebow is that guy (and who would know better?) then it's his duty to go out and find that guy.

Worth the shot yes....but I doubt Peyton adds more than 3 wins to the total..and since they have ignored virtually every other FA need on the team
we will be hard pressed to match last years record, even with Manning.

Chiefs have made some solid moves and if their hurt players return to form they are going to be hard to handle. SD is the same as always . Oakland will have a tough year. Without any improvement its a race to the division cellar for us and them.

One other thing...maybe Manning is gauging how serious the 3 teams in the hunt are by what OTHER moves they are making. In that case we come up dead last.

We were hoping we'd land Manning but, really this org isn't like 95 anymore to land a big fish. We need a younger owner with billions now. We are modeling after the Rockies. Unless we land #1 pick to get a QB worth a darn we aren't going anywhere anytime soon. We need to spend money to compete.

Some of you guys crack me up. The article says "one report" out of Denver...blah, blah, blah. That could be anybody folks, including just a guy that has no real connection to the team or EFX. Specifically, it doesn't say "sources high in the organization". This is wild speculation.

Until Klis, DMAC, Vic and/or someone like them says something like this, then let's just relax. Why? Because they are getting thier info from either EFX and/or the agents involved. So far, they have been mostly right, and until they say something like the above statement, then they believe the Broncos are still the frontrunners.
