      I don't know what the exact numbers are.I hope for Denver's sake there were clauses in the contract,and that they didn't guarantee all the money.It just seems like they are putting a lot on the shoulders of a guy that,let's be honest,who knows how his body will hold up next season.

      I am not trying to knock Peyton Manning at all.For anyone who follows the NFL,it's obvious he has been one of the league's best quarterbacks.I just don't know if it makes a lot of sense to invest in him heavily at this stage of his career.

    That is five years for that amount, while other team are willing to give him only three years!!

    The Broncos could easily win in that division. HMMMPPPH, I don't have anything against P. Manning, I feel bad for Tebow - of course he is always positive about things!

    Envision this, prettydarkhorse, Tim Tebow as a Pittsburgh Steeler.

    He needs to go somewhere like Pittsburgh where he won't create a QB controversy and can play a role he is best suited for.

    The Steelers short yardage offense is pitiful. We don't really want Big Ben running either. I remember one game where we had it first and goal from the one and Mendenhall ran four straight times and we couldn't score.

    Yep, I could see Tebow behind center in black and gold in certain situations. We should trade Hines Ward for him.

      running back, hehe! He likes being a QB!. They said he can be traded nearest to his home - Jax or Miami!!

        prettydarkhorse, you don't want Tim Tebow on the Steelers? I thought you said he was totally hot and Tom Brady looked like a girl in comparison.

          He is a level headed and a nice person!! I am sure he can be in any team and still remain positive smile

          BTW, Hines Ward is going to retire as a Steelers, he said that awhile ago - not to me, in the news! big_smile

            Did you see Hines crying in the news conference?

            He dances like a diva and cries like a baby.

            I can't wait to see Peyton's news conference real soon here.

            This is much better than soap operas.

    It's already started here in Denver.  The number #18 is here for a while...
    The Restaurant 'Applebees' is offering .18 cent Buffalo Wings this week for Peyton Manning's arrival..!
    I'm sure a trend that will sweep the city.

    If only they could do an $18 dollar ticket deal to the game to see him play, but I have a feeling the ticket prices might climb up a tad this year..

    Easier for him to win Super Bowl from Denver. At Indiana, he was never given the luxury of a good defense. Broncos' defense is much better and they still have a decent amount of cap left to attract free agents to its offense. In short, Broncos are going to be a great team from next year.

    I just watched Ike Taylor of the Steelers talk about how Tebow should stay and learn from Manning. Ultimately, I think he is a good insurance policy, as Manning is no guarentee to last throughout his contract. I think Tebow is hard working and learning from Manning will enable Tebow to grow.

      The only problem with Tebow staying behind Manning is that they are completely different kinds of QBs, who thrive in completely different offenses.  The Broncos will now build their offense around Manning, in both theory and personnel.   If Manning goes down, I'm not sure Tebow is the guy to come in and pick up where he left off.  My guess is that Denver will move Tebow and back Manning up with a more traditional QB.

      Unless Elway is still holding out hope that Tebow will change his ways and become a "normal" NFL QB.

      Whatever happens, I like Tebow and I think he's good for the game. I hope he has a soft landing.

    He should just quit and get a job carrying his little brother's equipment...
    that would be as close as he will ever come again to a Superbowl ring

    The Suburban Poetposted 12 years ago

    You have to remember these few points:

    1) He's 36
    2) He sat out an entire year
    3) He had NECK SURGERY
    4) In his prime with everyone on the same page he only won one Super Bowl
    5) He is in a new system
    6) The recievers are not familiar with him

    I'd say the upside is maybe 10-6 or 11-5 and winning the first round of the playoffs. Anything more than that would be exceeding realistic expectations.

    I see it as a good move for the Broncos. If Manning remians healthy, he's the best QB in the league which means an automatic playoff berth in the weak AFC West. If he gets hurt or is ineffective, then this means the Broncos have no legitimate QB. I like the Broncos chances.

      36 years old

      4 neck surgeries

      being obsessed and not knowing when enough is enough is not all that attractive. 

      but I would rather have Manning suit up for the Jets then weebow

    Denver still did Tebow wrong. Tebow has the will to become a good quarterback in time. If Tebow completes a few more passes a year, his stats are equal to Sanchez. Manning is in the cold weather now and he is still like 9-10 in the postseason. Denver will not win a Superbowl. Manning is great in the regular season. One good hit and he is done. Have to be reminded who their number 2 is now cause he may be starting after the first game or two.

      Broncos signed Caleb Hanie to be the backup.

    It's a gamble, but I don't think he can be any worse than Tebow was for them last year. I'm pretty sure no matter how his arm is feeling, Manning can equal the numbers that Tebow put up passing last year.

    The Broncos division is pretty pitiful so they should at least be in the race, especially with the way their defense plays.

    Saying how Manning only won one Super Bowl in his prime like it is a negative is a joke because in his prime he had to face the Patriots basically every year. Patriots were the better team in most cases, doesn't mean Manning was chopped liver.

    I had to laugh at the one about Tebow's stats being equal to Sanchez with a few more completions. Sanchez is definitely not someone who quarterbacks should be striving to be equal to. He's struggling in his own right.

    Steelers @ Broncos first game should be very interesting.

    Since Tebow and the Broncos beat the Steelers, what if Peyton and the Broncos don't?

  15. WD Curry 111 profile image57
    WD Curry 111posted 12 years ago  Okay, you asked. Denver has something to regret. It will bite them hard. They say Tebow can't pass. Even half drunk Joe Namath said it of him. Hello? The kid shattered Florida high school passing records. In college, he played under transplant coaches who have no comprehension of what to do with Florida talent. The guy can throw on the money for sixty yards. Remember the wide receivers always complaining about the play calls? The hardest to bring down running backs sat the bench. They still won the national title.

    Anyway, he can freaking pass. By the time he is done, clinics will be teaching his passing style. It is beyond what has been before.

    As a Floridian, I hate that he is playing in New York. Jacksonville . . . take a hint . . . the homeboy can't play for your dumb ass coaches. Get a Florida high school coach and win the Super Bowl.

    I agree. Tebow can pass the ball. People tend to forget that the kid has only started 15 or 16 games now. I like the move to New York because Rex wanted him. With a little work, this kid can be special. Have to give respect where it is deserved. He has the heart of a lion. He made me believe in him. I have learned quickly, don't ever count Tebow out.

    Tebow will outgun Manning this season! Probably not, well doubtfully not. Still have to respect the heart of a lion.
