The Broncos have to wait for Peyton Manning before they go ahead and sign offensive free agents.

Thanks Manning.

Imagine if he doesn’t sign?

What a waste.

If he does sign?

What a joke.

Manning is on the downside of his career.

Jeff Saturday, Dallas Clark, Reggie Wayne…

All of them are on the downside.

It’s “The Twilight Saga” in Denver. And it sucks.

Signing Manning will set this franchise back 2-3 years.

That’s if Manning manages to stay healthy.

The Broncos don’t have a good defense. They don’t have a great offensive line.

Our offensive line and our running game will not be the same with a pure pocket passer in there. The quarterback position will be upgraded (temporarily) with Manning, but the offensive line and running game will downgrade. McGahee and Ball flourished with the misdirection of the option. Our line seemed to pass block better because our QB was evasive and mobile. Mobile instead of a one legged goat (see Orton, Manning).

I don’t believe this move will work. I don’t believe that Manning will lead the Broncos to a Super Bowl in two or perhaps even three years.

And three years are about all he’s good for — if he can stay healthy.

We’re talking about a guy in his fifteenth season for crying out loud.

It reeks of Montana with the Chiefs, Favre with the Vikings.

This is a decent piece by that turd Michael Silva. You know the Broncos could have contacted Tebow and told him they were going after Manning. Perhaps if Manning signed the Broncos could have kept Tebow and pulled a Steve Young where he sits for 2-3 years.

If manning doesn’t sign I’m seriously thinking they’ll have “Brandon Weeden” become the face of the franchise.

But for now the Broncos are flailing and trying to become the Colts west.

Ain’t gonna work.
