Not making a case for the guy from Denver (heck I couldn't even tell you his name without a google search), but one thing that the media types have said about that organization and the cap was about how smart it was that they signed Manning to what was basically 5 one-year deals instead of one 5 year deal, so if he can't pass a physical, they could just walk away. I don't know all the details as I didn't follow that signing. Once he spurned us, I moved on. I am just parroting what I have heard said during the playoffs.
