Re: Peyton Manning Chooses the Broncos

I wouldn't pay him that kind of money. He's coming off a serious injury, missing an entire year, new team, playing outside in bad weather. Chances are Denver's not getting the old Peyton IMO.

Re: Peyton Manning Chooses the Broncos

I definitely think going to a team that does not have the media frenzy attached to it like a Dallas, New York, or Washington is probably what won out for Peyton. Although, I can't see Tennessee being one of those "media frenzy" teams.

That's why you structure a deal that protects you in case his neck remains a problem. It's doubtful he sees a lot of that money away. It will likely be a 3 year deal in reality.

Even if he's 75% of what he was, he's still very good.

I'd say there is a small chance they get to a SB in 3 years. They better start getting Manning better help then what they got. I do see them 10 wins every year though

If they knock the Ravens out every year of the playoffs, that is a WIN for me!

Re: Peyton Manning Chooses the Broncos

I think the Broncos will end up with Mike Wallace.

Make that 96 million.


Chris Mortensen ‏ @mortreport


True to parameters, Manning agrees to 5-year, $96-million deal, will sign it & 3 p.m. ET presser to introduce new #Broncos QB is on

Re: Peyton Manning Chooses the Broncos

Some more details (not in bold, )

Andrew Brandt ‏ @adbrandt
Am being told Peyton will make $18 million in 2012. There is an injury waiver based on physical in 2013. More to come.

I'd be curious to know what the Titans and 49ers were offering him.

Was the 18 supposed to be symbolic? Thank goodness he's not Wayne Gretzky

Re: Peyton Manning Chooses the Broncos

I'm just curious to know whether Manning actually came out and said that this is not about the money or if that is all speculation from the sports talking heads. Given the player of his caliber, even if he did say that I would find it hard to believe he wouldn't be given a big contract due to the market for him (didn't Miami come out guns blazing with $$ to get Manning?)

Re: Peyton Manning Chooses the Broncos

John Elway chose an old veteran over a young QB who led his team to the playoffs last season. One flaw in Tebow's game is his insane inaccuracy. Completing only 46% of his passes is extremely poor. But Tebow, while not a conventional quarterback, doesn't turn the ball over much. But Elway would rather have a QB who hasn't played since the 2010 playoffs. He choosing a QB who is coming off of three reportedly neck surgeries. He's choosing an aging QB. Peyton Manning is a huge risk. We'll just have to wait and see what Manning brings to this Denver team. I'm not a Tebow fan by any stretch of the imagination, but I wouldn't have thrown Tebow to the crocodiles in favor of Manning.
