As much as I love Tebow, no thanks.

Re: Peyton Manning Chooses the Broncos

Denver will allow Manning to run the offense his own way. And if they pull off the trade for Mike Wallace that SS spoke of previously, they'll potentially have one of the best WR trios (Wallace, Thomas, Decker) in the league. If McGahee and Moreno stay healthy and Manning gets back on track, Denver went from eeking out a win vs the Steelers and getting slammed by the Patriots in the playoffs to a team that could not only whip everyone in the West, but be the team to beat in the AFC.

Re: Peyton Manning Chooses the Broncos

I wonder how soon Dallas Clark and Jeff Saturday land in Denver

And I also wonder if Bud Adams will still consider cutting Hasselbeck and saving $5 million. I would hope not

Why not? Locker looked like he was ready to start when he came in those few times.

Broncos are the best team in the AFC that were not fully committed already to a QB and had the room to sign him.

Re: Peyton Manning Chooses the Broncos

How happy are the Denver wr's??? They're probably doing back flips right now. Thomas has now become everyones fantasy darling for 2012.

Eric Decker might be the better option. He caught 8 TDs with Tebow at the helm.

Plus Florida is home to the religious right...Tebow could have a fanbase similar to Denver.

True.. both Decker and Thomas are going to be catching a lot of balls.

Some of his fans are just football fans, you know.

Anyways, back to football talk, I do think Tebow will end up on one of the three Florida teams. They ALL need a QB.

Re: Peyton Manning Chooses the Broncos

No idea what the **** Peyton is thinking. The 49ers have always been the best team out there for his situation so I think he's making a huge mistake. They have the best defense in the NFL, a good core on offense (moss,davis,crabtree,gore).....and he chooses the Broncos? /facepalm


As for Tebow. Ciao! Adios! The guy simply isn't a good starting NFL QB despite his record.

Re: Peyton Manning Chooses the Broncos

I'm glad he's finally signed with someone, so I can stop changing it to NFLN only to see a camera shot of him getting into a car that's heading to some practice facility so he can meet with some team.

Also, I second whomever said we made the smart play trading up for our qb early, because otherwise we'd be picking scraps off the table. It feels nice knowing we aren't settling for a retread.

I think it came down to who he felt most comfortable with and his desire to stay in the AFC. Plus it's not like Denver has a bad team. They did make the playoffs and won a playoff game.

Re: Peyton Manning Chooses the Broncos

I really don't think this had anything to do with money. Payton was going to pick the team he wanted to play for and the one he thought fit him best. He wants another SB more then he needs more money.
