    The OP's thesis seems to be that Lavonte David would have contributed more than Brock Osweiler to this year's team.

    Elway and the FO obviously thought they could take the QB of the future in the 2nd, and pick up a similar talent at WLB in Danny Trevathan in the 6th round. And obviously, they were right....

      Manning was 36 years old and coming off of a major spinal injury. Your comments are specious at best, and troll-ish at worst.

          I said backups for several year(s) and went on to become pro bowlers. Meaning made multiple trips to the pro bowl

              You dont understand the question buddy. Brock is riding pine. I.E, not playing any football games. Who else has done that?

                A bunch of people. And even if it were zero your thread would still suck.

                  He was healthy enough to be given 20 million dollars. Am i wrong?

                    Can anyone give me an example of a quarterback from Arizona State who came into the league, sat at least 6 seasons, then went on to more than 8 pro bowls and the hall of fame?

                    Ridiculously specific question is ridiculously specific.

                      Meh, hindsight is 20/20 (I would have preferred to keep our former starter as backup and drafted a Lb or S where Os was taken).

                      We could have drafted Kirk Cousins instead of Boldin, Lavonte David instead of Oz (though I think he's a WLB and our need is in the middle), Foles, Wilson or any number of other players.

                        Just look at Dallas today. They have to rely on a back-up to make the playoffs. It's the NFL, players get hurt. Depth is a good thing.

                          I'm going to trust Elway's judgement on the Bro Magnum. He seems to be doing a swell job.

                            Correction: You THINK Manning will play out his contract. Show me a successful GM who doesn't hedge his bets. Go.
