Reader: Peyton Manning will make Broncos fans forget Tim Tebow nostalgia fast

A recent Denver Blogs roundup highlighted a post whose writer admitted that he'd miss the Tim Tebow era, when the Broncos were always underdogs.

That prompted a response from one reader who suffers from no such nostalgia.

Eric writes:

That's fair.

Looking at the opponents, the Broncos will have the undisputed better quarterback on the field 13 out of 16 times out.

And Pittsburgh, New Orleans, and New England on the schedule promise to be the marquis games on those given weeks.

The Broncos managed to turn the turd sandwich McDaniels handed them into the biggest plus since Elway, Davis, and company won back to back 97 and 98.

This is exciting.

There's no way it can live up to the hype, but this season will be great.

What's Vegas saying for over and under?

If it's only 9.5, I'm jumpin' all over it...for 50.
