I can't take it here at MHR anymore. I loved coming hear to read everones opinions and all of your stances on the roster and where we should go from here. While I tend to disagree a lot, I am open to all viewpoints. My problem right now, the majority of people here are now Tebow fans instead of Bronco fans and it disgusts me.
Peyton Manning or Tim Tebow. Are you kidding me? I don't want to hear about the money. Peyton Manning is worth every penny whether it's 10 or 20 mill a year. We have the money and now you people don't want us to spend it? It is mind boggling. Now you guys are starting to bash Elway because he is bold enough to make moves and spend the money rather than just sitting down idle. I don't get it.
I don't care that Manning is 36, he is still WAY better than Tebow, and if you don't think that Peyton Manning can throw the football anymore, what leads you to believe he can't. The last year he played he was vintage Peyton while his #1 reciever was Blair White. The guy has taken teams deep into the playoffs with virtually no defense or support his entire career. Our offense has a young solid receiving core where a veteran (like reggie wayne) could do wonders, an above average offensive line, and a top tier running game. Pair this with a defense that is on the rise and has a nice mix of youth along with veterans and it is made for Peyton to succeed.
Now i'm going to hear about his neck. One of two doctors that cleared him told Peyton that if he was his own son he would let him play and that his neck is not the issue anymore, at all. The small issue now is the nerve rejuvenating which it is already in the process of doing. All he has now is time. Brandon Stokely and John Lynch have been recruiting him here. Don't you think they would not have done this if they didn't believe Peyton was healthy. Stokely says Peyton has been throwing like it was 6 years ago. I'll take half of Peyton 6 years ago 24/7/365.
I understand the dedication to Tebow. I enjoyed last season just as much if not more than the next guy. But you have to be in denial to say that we won some games last year DESPITE a functional quarterback. Tebow was magical last year i understand that. Do you want to bank on MAGIC again this year. We went to the 2nd round of the NFL playoffs last year while we were deficient in the most important position in sports by far hands down no ifs ands or buts about it. Now plug in a guy who is arguably the greatest player of all time at that said position, and we are instant contenders, regardless of what else we do this offseason.
I just feel some people need to come back down to earth, and become Bronco fans instead of Tebow fans. There is a fine line, don't play with it.
If you don't think Peyton Manning makes us a better football team, I do not see how you can say that without lying to yourself.
