08:27 AM ET 04.09 | Team vice chairman Bill Polian conceded earlier this week he "couldn't dismiss" the possibility of looking for a quarterback to eventually replace Peyton Manning during the April 28-30 draft. "Quarterback's an issue, probably not a front-burner issue, but an issue nonetheless because while Peyton's not at the end of his career, it's approaching faster than it has in the past," Polian said. "I wouldn't rule that out in the right situation."

Dumb! What QB in this draft would you even consider as a replacement five years from now? Ever? Just when a contract would run out anyways.

I'd wait until Peyton Manning starts talking retirement before running him out of town.

Your chances of finding a viable replacement are slip to none anyway.

Frustrations maybe because of Manning's part the CBA negotiations.

Just the one thread today?

Better wait one more year. QB's in this draft class have no class. Maybe do some trading for an early first round pick next year. A trade for the Bengals 1st round pick should get you in the top 3.

Give us more THREADS!!!!!!

FORNICATION!

If Polian thinks this is sending any kind of a message to Peyton, then he is delusional at best. More likely-psychotic.
