If Peyton hadn't accepted Denver , Weeden might be starting for the Broncos right now instead of playing against them this weekend

7 posts in this topic

Elway particularly liked the fact Weeden already understood what it took to be a professional athlete and thought that would serve Weeden well in the inevitable struggles that come on the job.

 

But when Manning said yes, Weeden no longer fit their profile for a developmental prospect. He turned 29 this season, and for him to wait several years behind Manning didn't make sense.

 

So, the Broncos looked at the youngest quarterback on the board after Manning signed because they also liked Brock Osweiler's size, arm strength and swagger. He was just 21 at the time of the draft.

 

Even if Manning plays four years with the Broncos, the team will still have a quarterback prospect who is just 25 who has been schooled at the University of Manning for several seasons.

SPEAKING OF DRAFTING

 

Elway, Scouts Begin Draft Prep

 

“We’re in the process,” Elway said. “The scouts are in today. They start the meetings this morning. Who’s No. 1? You’ll have to find out later. It’s too early to give you the old who’s No. 1. The scouts will be here this whole week and the first run at the board will be finished by the end of the week. We’ll have 320 guys up on the board that are draftable at this point in time.”

 

“This process is going to change several times,” Elway said. “This is the first shot at it, get it up on the board. It’s kind of exciting to see the names up there, knowing that the draft is not that far away.”

If they really got Weeden, the biggest problem would not be Weeden's game. Instead it would be a huge headache to deal with Tebow situation. The guy totally ruined a servicable QB in Kyle Orton, and it took the greatest QB of all time the best regular season winning streak since 1998 for Denver to completely make the case for getting rid of him. Now he has destroyed Mark Sanchez's little confidence built from 2 deep playoff runs. He really has some magics.

I don't think Brandon Weeden is that good of a QB, but I still think the 49ers would have been a better place for Peyton to go, but I don't know if he and Harbaugh would have got along the best. Tougher division too.

 Orton played horribly and Tebow saved the Broncos season. Sanchez was never a good player, even before Tebow came along, and there have been reports of his over confidence to the point of cockyness, actually. Tebow isn't to blame for either of those situations, he didn't ask to be traded.

I agree 100%. Not about San Fran being a better play to go, but about a personality rift between Jim Harbaugh & Peyton Manning about which man has more authority over the other one. I just never saw Jim & Peyton clicking on the sidelines myself. John Elway, John Fox, & Jack Del Rio trump Jim Harbaugh any day of the week IMO.

 

Jim Harbaugh is very intelligent & a darn good coach, but John Fox is better & Peyton is more familiar with him. Plus, #18 has always revered John Elway, a sharp football mind who speaks the same X's & O's language as he does.

agree,that  would be a SB much easier for him but as SW1 says

 Harbaugh & Peyton Manning would each want more control & flexibilty than harboaugh would give peyton , Harbaugh wants it his way

 

Peyton esp wife would rather live inn smaller midwest, she is private , remember hid was having twins till after the fact, san fran would be to big for her to be confortable

 

But dont think fox is better coach, he is too conservative but is better fit as allows peyton the flexibilty he wants

    • Don't think Boston would do that. I'd rather have both picks too but they will be wanting to keep the young players and open up cap space so they would likely want to move guys they won't re-sign like Avery Bradley and company. I actually think they might want to move Isaiah because he would be due a big contract in a year or whatever and he has the hip injury. Hard to tell if you take a point guard in Fultz and you have Smart already and Rozier....that's a lot of point guards to have. If we got just both picks or also a throw in we would be looking at a true rebuild. We would see us tanking next year and having possibly two top 10 picks to pair with the #1 from this year and Turner. That would be pretty good way to rebuild. That way you just have to sign perhaps one or two free agents with the cap space you free up from losing PG, Teague, CJ, Monta, and AL and you should have a very competitive team. I think Turner is going to be an all-star caliber player. Just have to hit on a couple draft picks and then add a nice free agent or two and you should be able to compete in the East. There is no replacing PG...but if you see that you can't improve the team around him for the long term...you get the best deal you can or you risk your star just walking out on you leaving you with nothing to rebuild with.
    • too late now, but i streamed it live on youtube
    • Yes, You are correct! He's got drug suspension possible. So I wouldn't touch this he's also got some character issues. He;s not the worst guy around or anything but his car was pulled over with a 12 yr old kid smelling of weed and he resisted arrest.   
    • Reggie White? Hes considered the GOAT at his position isn't he? Though JJ Watt has a shot to beat him out.
    • No. Some of those players are going to be underwhelming or outright busts. And the majority of them are going to need time to get acclimated to the NFL's level of speed. There are some positions that just take awhile to develop, the secondary would have a very hard time.    Then to win it they need to go up against much more experienced teams.

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
