They managed to not score a single TD in their first 3 pre-season games, the first team to do since since the 1977 atlanta falcons, 35 freaking years ago..
Having said that Sanchez looked decent, going 11 for 18, 123 yards..
These are the types of stats, Tebow can only dream of..
So I do predict Tebow spends most of the time on the bench, and never replaces Sanchez as the starter..
Damn shame Tebow didnt got to Jacksonville.. Tim would have replaced sucky Gabbert in a heartbeat..
This is one of those deals, where EVERYBODY loses..
The only plus side, was that it made the pre-season, (which is usually one helluva boring time), into quite an exciting product.. In the Panthers Jets game, we got to see Newton, Sanchez AND Tebow, all in the same game, playing significant amounts of time..
2. Matt Schuab..
If he can stay healthy, then all of a sudden, the Texans become the sexy pick, to represent the AFC at the Super Bowl..
But is this franchise cursed?
3. Peyton Manning will wish he did not come back..
I can easily see this team starting 2-7!!
With loses to Pitt, atlanta, houston, pats, saints, Bungholes and panthers..

I'll start by talking about your selections.
Number 1. There is NOTHING exciting about watching Tebow and Sanchez. Its a disgrace to other QB's league wide. And on top of that with all the coverage the Jets got this preseason and training camp I would be just fine with not hearing about the Jets for the rest of the year.
Number 2. Schaub is a good QB but the Texans have other questoins like how to replace Mario Williams and Demeco Ryans. Ryans was kind of shunned out but Williams is hard to replace. I am more worried about Andre Johnson and his health.
Number 3. Peyton isn't going to ever regret coming back. He is one of those players that just loves the game.
My top 3 and i'm not sure if this is in order or not but:
1. Replacement refs. Are they going to affect the outcome of games? Will they hold down the fort in a respectable way or will everyone be grilling them after each game?
2. Young QB's. 10 QB's will start this season either a 2nd year or rookie.
3. I'll stick with Peyton but i'll say how will his neck hold up. True he took some hits but not a full 16 game seasons worth. He's a legend and hopefully doesn't get held back by his neck.

Dida chick? Dida chum?
Wont you help me? Cant you see Im desperate?
You start off saying;
"Peyton will never regret his comeback"
Then, You say;
"(oooooooh), hopefully doesn't get held back by his neck"....
THATS MY WHOLE POINT..
Yes I DO THINK, the neck will become a factor..
you really think their is not a part of him, that is terrified of facing Pitt in week 1?
Heck, if I was him, right now, I would be finalizing my will.. Saying I want to be buried at sea, on a full moon:)
Its not obvious to me, if Peytons offensive line, can keep him from getting really really NAILED..
Like he got nailed against the 49ers LineBacker, cause there was a miscommunication..
We are talking about the Denver offensive line, going from a help the rush, to a protect one of the purest pocket passers of all time.. I really think this is something that wont happen RIGHT AWAY..
Its like going from a super hot blonde, that likes to wear skin tight leather pants.. But has no personality.. To some fat chick that looks decent after 7 pints of vodka and hanging out with RELIGIOUS RIGHT WING NUT paul ryan all day:)

The only way Peyton regrets coming back is if the neck gets hurt worse. If that is what you were saying then sorry I agree. I thought you were saying he would regret coming back because you didn't think Denver was going to have a good year. Therefore he would regret coming back for that. Even if Denver goes 0-16 I still can't imagine Peyton not enjoying the game of football. He obviously wouldn't be happy but he still is glad to be playing rather than not.
The Jets QB's are like the girl from Africa who won a medal but ended up having both parts and Snooki. Either way you're options suck. I couldn't care less what the Jets do. I actually hope they just quit playing football alltogether. Especially after all the preseason coverage they got. I could do without another Jets article/news story for the rest of the season.
On to the most important issue that will affect every team going into this season. Replacement refs. I personally don't think its all that big of a deal. At least I figure it shouldn't be but after seeing some of those calls the refs made this preseason I kind of think they got these guys off a soccer field rather than other levels of football.

Peyton didnt look very happy, when he got totally drilled by the 49ers linebacker, in their 3rd pre season game, did he? I bet he called up the offensive lineman that night, (the one who made the mistake), and screamed at him for 3 hours.. Is screaming at someone for 3 hours, sound like fun to you? Trust me getting totally drilled by 250lbs linebackers, gets old quickly.. Especially if you have confidence issues with your neck..
Plus Peyton is an incredible competitor..
If this team does start off 3-6.. Peyton is going to come home from the office, and if he is lucky, maybe he gets 3hours of sleep that night.. Does 3hours of bad sleep, the kind of sleep you wake up every 20minutes, does that sound like fun to you?
Look Peyton is a great guy/role model..
But he should have just stayed retired..
People are going to remember his come back at Denver.. Like you or I would remember an ex-girlfriend, the one you would get into 3 or 4 nasty fights a week.. Total train wreck disaster..
If you are Peyton, and you got a half a billion dollars in your swiss bank account..
Would you come back for this?
I have gone back to ex girlfriends.. And it did not work out..

Peyton knew exactly what he was getting himself into when he signed on to play with the Broncos. Your little hypotheticals are ridiculous and Peyton isn't going to regret coming back if the Broncos are a lousy team.
And yes as someone who would trade anything to get to play in the NFL I would go back. No matter how much is in my account. As long as Peyton can still compete with the best of them there is no reason he shouldn't be on the field.
Its hard to say you're going to remember Peyton for his Broncos days. I find it very hard to believe the first thing about Peyton you would think of years after he retires is going to be his Broncos days depending on how they play out. If the Broncos years are average years then Peyton will always be remembered as a Colt. You'll always think of his battles with the Patriots and Tom Brady, his super bowl win, his passing TD record, all the completions to Wayne, Harrison, and Clark.
That is the Peyton everyone will remember. Unless he duplicates that as a Bronco. Then you might look at Peyton as not only one of the all time greats but possible the greatest.
He will not regret coming back.
