Honestly, I think Manning is going to struggle some. More than people expect. He like Brady has benefited from having a lot of continuity (something we've lacked) in the same offense. I think he'll honestly disappoint those who have high expectations.

i heard a bronco beat writer on the radio today and he made a interesting point re peyton coming to the broncos, that being that they are not switching over their offense to the the peyton manning colts offense, but rather peyton is having ot learn the mike mccoy offense

Yes. He has a broken neck and he is old. Honestly he is declining fast. It's probably best we didn't sign him for $96 million. He's not worth that at this state. In the past sure. Now no.
Yeah I think he'll still do pretty well but between having to learn a new offense and his health/age situation, I don't think he was worth the money. I wouldn't be surprised if Alex does as well or better than him this year. He might do really well though because Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker are too pretty big and really talented WR's, and Tebow struggled to get them the ball even though they were wide open a lot. If he stays healthy though they should be pretty good because their OL+Running game is good and their defense is pretty good.
I think they finish at least second in the division. He can learn a new offense easily. They made the playoffs last year because of the great run game they had, without Tebow their run offense wont be as good.
