    That isn't what he said. He said if Manning got hurt, it would serve them (read: the Broncos) right for the manner in which they treated Tebow.

    In one sense he has a point. They have sort of put all their eggs in one basket, and we have already seen what happens when Mannings understudy gets tossed into the starting role. At least Tebow had starting experience.

    Irsay was right in letting him go.
    Not that I'm naysaying you, but how do you know these things?

    Well thats the concern, to be sure.

    I hope he has a full five years left in him, as he is one of the best ever to play the game. And unlike having to watch Tom Brady, I can watch Manning play without becomming ill.

    I would like to see Tebow go to the Jaguars. It would be his team and the only place they could go is up. That franchise is the worst in the NFL, they need a shot in the arm.

    As for Peyton, I have a feeling he is risking way to much for a few more years of competition. Hope it all works out for him.

    Well we're gonna see eh?

    Reports are Smith and Niners agreed to a 3 year deal. I like this as it gives the Niners room to groom a franchise qb in the next couple years.

    That makes sense, really, given the nature of some coaches and the systems they run. But I thought that even with the Colts Manning did not have full control of calling every play, but rather the, authority?, to override any play sent in if he felt the need.

    I guess that amounts to the same thing in some regards, but don't most NFL QB's have the right to call off into other plays, depending on how the defense sets up?

    Having never been an NFL quarterback I don't know, but why tie your guys hands with static play calling.

    Yep. It is being reported by a number of news agencies he is signing with Denver. They are also, of course, talking about what will become of Tebow, as he wouldn't be an effective back up for Manning because of their different play styles.

    But then a trade may be the best thing for Tebow, as Elway obviously didn't want him around, or even to succeed.
    I heard on sports radio today, Peyton wanted to go to a team that would let him call the plays. He said he doesn't have the time to memorize new plays and learn a new system. I guess Denver agreed to his terms.
