Time to play Hardball

Enough is enough already, look I support trying Manning to bring in Manning, this is no disrespect towards Tebow and what he has done, this is about bringing in a 4 time league MVP, 1 SB champ to make a run. But the time has come to quit cowering to Manning and the fear of the Titans. It is time for Elway to be frank and ernest with Manning and give him a an ultimatium to sign or go be Bud Adams money whore. If Manning is about winning, if he is about class, if he is about legacy, if he is about team, then he should have no problem signing with the Broncos. If Manning is about money, about spite and revenge, about his own ego, then he should sign with the Titans and I want no part of him on the Broncos. Enough with the games, Manning is smart enough to know Bud Adams is a scum bag with an ability to BS with the best of them. Manning should of been able to tell the difference between a class organization with a storied tradition, lead by a HOF QB, a great owner, and a real team versus an organization like the Titans whose claim to fame was pissing off their fan base in Houston to move to Tennessee and have no one in Houston. If Manning is about winning and SB then he should understand that signing a $100 million dollar contract would basically strap that organization the ability to support him with quality FA or resigning quality players, he need only look at how Elway took less money at the end of his career in order to sign good players so he would have a chance to win. If Manning doesn't understand it then I say let him sign with the Titans, he isn't about winning 1st. While I like the idea of Manning playing with the Broncos, I don't like it if it will bankrupt the franchise. Elway needs to allow Manning to sign elsewhere and embrace Tebow as a starter if Manning is in this only for the money, if his visits to Arizona and the Titans were a stratagy to raise the price and increase the leverage, at some point Elway needs to say enough is enough and call the bluff. We have treated Manning with respect and the organization has gone out of it's way to keep everything confidential, as opposed to the Titans. Elway needs to call the bluff.
