Is Elway's "There is no plan B." comment worrysome?
I know John Elway tried to put it off as a lighthearted, witty comment but it scared the heck out of me. (Well, as much as anything that I cannot control and has no real impact on my life, can.)
This is really a sounding board post. I'm no NFL mastermind and have questions. If it is a repeat, please join.. I looked in the applicable areas and didn't see one.
What is "plan B" going to be? - an really, what is all included?
I'm assuming they were talking about an 'in case something terrible happens to Manning' scenario.
Presuming that Tebow is traded - we'll need a QB to inject into Manning's scheme. It is my understanding that there is no man on earth that can just take over and remember/coordinate the crazy "blue pigeon red left rockthrower" crazy play calls he makes. So I guess we're going to be buying a Mercedes and saying "In case my Mercedes breaks down, I've got a new Chevy Sonic to drive around during repairs."
I guess my question is... Is there such a thing as a viable "plan B" with our new situation? Or will we just be looking for emergency parachute so we don't splatter on the ground?
Let's get this done, Manning.
Now, how about some young, breakout talent? Sure, being great next year would be awesome. Call me greedy, but I want to be great for TEN years.
