Watch the official site's video of the presser from earlier today
2:38 pm Via Albert Breer, a photo of Manning's new Broncos jersey. #18, in orange.
2:57 pm Here's a better shot of the jersey via Andrew Mason
3:05 pm First thought of the day: do they make Xanders sit at the little kids' table?
3:14 pm So, how are they going to avoid Tebow? Someone is bound to ask, right? Avoiding Tebow in this presser is like trying to avoid germs at a pre-school.
3:18 pm Arnie says the Tebow pics have already been zonked from Dove Valley. Sacco as the Wolf from Pulp Fiction?
3:22 pm What's with the sound quality? Man, they really were cutting corners at DV huh? Sounds like an old baseball sound clip.
3:22 pm I..I...am...am...the...the...luckiest....luckiest....VP...VP
3:23 pm What are the chances Elway or Manning drops to a knee during this thing?
3:27 pm Comfort is as key to Peyton as has been written, judging by how many times he used the word
3:29 pm Tripucka should get a game ball
3:30 pm Fox may not know when to go for it on 4th down, but his relationship with Manning was crucial here.
3:33 pm Looks like Manning doesn't expect the sun, moon, and stars--just some Broncos gear to get comfortable.
3:33 pm So far so good, not one mention of Tebow or Jesus.
3:35 pm Not to be all fanboy-like or anything, but this is just surreal
3:36 pm "Timetables are for sissies. I want snaps."
3:37 pm If Tebow is here, Manning will be the best teammate he can be. Sorry, Tebow haters, you can't blame Peyton.
3:38 pm Elvis blows up QBs...and their phones.
3:39 pm Personnel is not Manning's department. But he'll still drive the forklift through the warehouse, don't kid yourself.
3:40 pm What a world; one of the GOATs is apologizing for taking 12 days to make a decision about where to go after spending 14 years with one team.
3:44 pm Manning says he could play today, if not up to his standards. He'd probably still be better than 75% of the starting QBs in this league.
3:47 pm Hey new guy: cut that meat!
3:49 pm They can bait this guy all they want with the Tebow stuff. He won't bite.
3:50 pm Wants to retire as a Bronco. Sounds good to us.
3:51 pm Think Elway will be asked if he's keeping Tebow? Nah, probably not.
3:53 pm Elway wasn't going to give away half the organization. That's probably 50% true.
3:57 pm We're going through that process now. Translation: we've got a deal on the table.
3:58 pm "This is a tough business." Understatement of the year.
4:00 pm The way Elway is talking, I don't doubt that he thinks Peyton can play for another 4 to 5 years.
4:01 pm Surprising that it was Fox who made the initial call to Manning, not Elway. Fox: silent but deadly.
4:05 pm John Elway, best liar ever!
4:07 pm Elway is pointing out that Tebow is no more special than other guys trying to make rosters each year. They have feelings, too.
4:11 pm Elway asked if Manning is better than him all time--one thing is for sure: both are better than Dan Marino.
4:13 pm He wants to put Tebow in the best situation possible--does that mean Jacksonville?
4:14 pm Some reporter is asking about what Plan B for Denver was, but who gives a damn?! This isn't a what would happen comic.
4:23 pm The fact that this presser was dominated with questions about Tim Tebow only confirms why they need to trade Tim Tebow.
