In my opinion, the Broncos should take Brock Osweiler as their backup to Manning to start the regular season.
Osweiler was selected in the second round of the 2012 NFL draft by the Denver Broncos, and he played his college football at Arizona State. Osweiler was impressive in his first preseason game and was 4-of-7 for 38 yards and a touchdown. He appeared to outplay Hanie and Weber in the game.
Osweiler could be the future of the Denver Broncos, and the Broncos could do what the Packers did in the Favre-Rodgers situation.
They could allow Osweiler to study under Manning during his final years in the league. When Manning is ready to retire, Osweiler would be the next quarterback of the Broncos.
If Osweiler isn't ready to backup Manning, Hanie may get his shot but I feel the backup spot is Osweiler's to lose.
