Peyton Manning will become the next quarterback of the Denver Broncos, barring a snag during intensified contract negotiations that have commenced under the instruction of the four-time MVP to his agent Tom Condon, according to multiple sources.

Once the Manning deal becomes official, Denver will try to trade Tim Tebow, according to sources.

Tebow will be fine no matter what, he is not some shallow, crotch obsessed juvenile in a man’s body. He can sell tickets and he can win games.

And to those that say “well, let him stay in Denver and learn from Manning” remember he is a left-handed QB, so if you are going to force him into a West coast or Run-and-Gun, etc, he should be mentored by a lefty, not a gigantic ego like Manning who will want every snap.

Elway is a drip, always has been. I have nothing against Manning except that he played for the Irsay’s all those years. However, that said, I do not think Manning is the guy that will propel Denver to the superbowl. I think Elway and Manning will be singing a different tune come December.

Elway despises Tebow for some reason?

Tebow doesn't conform to Elway's idea of what it takes to have a winning NFL franchise. Basically Tebow's mechanics are all wrong ... not the smooth throwing motion, footwork in the pocket, ability to read the defense & react accordingly that top rated QB's in the NFL who consistantly make Super Bowl appearances. What Tebow has is a winner mentality and leadership ability ... his team mates play above and beyond. This is discounted by Elway.
Here in Bronco country, I'm a long time Bronco season ticket holder, if Manning doesn't produce Elway's reputation takes a huge hit. Elway has a lot on the line ...

I was surprised at Denver, too. If I had been a quarterback, I’d have been chomping at the bit to go to Arizona. Their receivers are tops, and just need a QB who can get them the ball.

Peyton has had 4 neck surgeries.

One good whack and he’s gone.

Absolutely, but it does not work unless he is the starter

Need to commit to Tebow, build the offense around him, if it means ditching the run and shoot/west coast offense, then so be it.

It will be terribly disappointing if he ends up with a team where he is not the starter.

Also just on the business end, I think you lose much of the magic if he is only a backup. That`s just reality

As you say...."one good whack" to the right place....and hundreds of guy's are out of the NFL.

With or without previous surgery.....
