John Elway: 'We Don't Have A Plan B'

Whichever team signed Peyton Manning would be dubbed as a franchise going "all in" to win the Super Bowl, and that's the case with the Denver Broncos, who officially introduced Manning at a Tuesday afternoon press conference. That was evident when someone asked John Elway, the Broncos' executive vice president of football operations, what "Plan B" was in case Manning got hurt.

"We don't have a plan B," Elway said. "We're going with plan A!"

The Broncos cut Kyle Orton last season and lost Brady Quinn in free agency. Tim Tebow, Elway confirmed, is a candidate to be traded. So the Broncos really don't have a plan B.

Manning's health will be scrutinized but according to a number of reports he should be healthy enough to play when the 2012 season kicks off. Manning himself even said during Tuesday's press conference that he could play this Sunday if he had to. He just may not play as well as he wants, to considering the time he's been away from the field.

If you're going all in on one player, it may as well be a four-time league MVP. I guess that's why the Broncos' Super Bowl odds are on the rise.
