08:04 AM ET 03.08 | Dare to dream, Denver. The Broncos may be considered the longest of long shots to sign Manning, a surefire Hall of Fame quarterback who is expected to have at least six other teams pursue him despite his significant health risk. But the Broncos are expected to place a phone call to Manning's agent, Tom Condon, to gauge their chances, according to an NFL source close to the situation. If Manning's contract can be structured so that the team would be protected in case Manning's troublesome neck becomes an issue, the Broncos could well be players. In Pat Bowlen, the Broncos have an owner who said after a second-round playoff loss at New England: "Not a bad season but not a great season, either. I want a great season."

Combo story... Tebow AND Manning! Why no Favre?

Manning's not going to Denver, you're safe Timmy....

March 8, 2012  08:11 AM ET

Careful what you wish for Wawa.

You'd have to be a complete moron to not recognize Elway's previous support of Tebow as the dreaded "vote of confidence" that is usually followed by replacing the player...sorry Tebow and Broncos fans that like Tebow (that's contradictory, isn't it? how can you like the Broncos and still want such a crappy QB to lead your team? That's like saying that you love the Pats but would like to see Ryan Leaf as the QB instead of someone that will actually win games like Brady)

Broncos are currently looking at anyone that can throw a ball to find a replacement for Tebow....

How do you replace Tebow? Easy....just snap the ball directly to the RB...the RB can probably throw a more accurate pass anyway

Outdoor stadium in a bad weather environment, playing at altitude with no WRs. Yeah, that's Manning's dream job, alright.

But combining a Tebow thread with a Peyton thread should blow the roof off this joint. Well played, FN.

Watch the Saints try to get Brees to take less pay with the threat of signing Manning...dome, warm weather, Colston and maybe Moss to throw to....

Based on the article, it looks like Elway is playing off Bowlen. I like you have been angry Elway, but it looks like The Big Bronco, doesn't have confidence in his Management Team!

he's trying to tiptoe the fine line between finding a QB with some actual skill without pissing off the deluded fans that think Tebow is the second coming....
