    That makes a ton of sense. Graham Harrel was horrible and Colt might have impressed GB a bit Our backups played fine.

    Like it really matters who our backup is if Manning goes down anyway.

    So we would only have one backup behind Manning? Too risky. I'd say keep Weber as the 3rd stringer.

    I don't see where we could put him. He certainly isn't going to beat out Elway's guy, Oz. right now I'm not sure he could beat out Hanie.

    Why in the world is some scenario dreamed up by a no name writer on some obscure sports blog. Getting so much attention on here. I am sure if this were true an actual reputable source would have mentioned it. Heck it would be all over NFL network and ESPN for that matter.

    If we were to bring in Colt, what kind of message would that send to Brock? I an kinda on the fence about Brock being the #2 and possibly seeing extended playing time. Some QBs do well being thrown in right away while others clearly do better sitting for a year or two. Do we know how Aaron Rodgers would have turned out if he had went and started his rookie year. Maybe Ryan Leaf would have turned into the stud that he was hyped up to be had he sat for a year or two. Anyways it will not hurt Brock to sit for a year or two, but it might hurt him if he were suddenly thrust in, a couple of ints or some bad hits could shake his confidence, and that is the last thing we would want to see. I will trust Elway's judgement in this situation as he has been through this himself. If Elway says he is not ready, then you can believe that he is not ready.
    Winner winner, chicken dinner.

    No way I can see this happening. I no way is Colt McCoy the prototypical QB that Elway is looking for. I can't see any benefit to bringing him here over any of the guys we currently have.

    If we're going to watch poor QB play, I'd rather watch Os get experience than McCoy flounder with no benefit.

    Just say NO to the Colt! Besides, he's written books, is religious, and is a self-promoter, which according to some diminishes their value as a football player. If we wanted one of those we could have kept Tebow, at least he played a role in turning his losing team into a playoff winning team.

    Both of them would be scheduled to be free agents before Manning's contract expires.

    What if Manning plays out the contract, what then?

    The Broncos are better off going with Osweiler. He would have an incentive to re-sign even if Manning were to play out his contract because he would know that he is the heir apparent. If he knew that he would be competing with someone else to be the heir apparent, he would be more likely to explore other options. The Broncos could find themselves in a position of having to decide whether or not to franchise tag a back up quarterback.

    I have been worried about this guy since he had "DEAD ARM" In that bowl game! I'd take Tebow over this guy! (JUST KIDDING)!!!!!

    Like most posters said I say no way Brock looks ahead of schedule and Weber played decent in the first game so no to McCoy!

    The difference between him and McCoy is not worth giving up anything.
    IMO there is a possibility that a young QB can be ruined if he's thrusted into the starting lineup before he's ready.
    Remember Brian Griese, I believe he would have been alot better QB in this league had he been given the time to grow and learn gradually. Im saying he would have been great by no means but he would have been alot better.
    Sure Peyton Manning, John Elway, Dan Marino were thrusted into the spotlight/thrown to the wolves but those guys were /are special.
    I just think you take it easy with a young QB as an insurance precaution.
