SB Nation's Broncos blog, Mile High Report, said this was one of the greatest moments in Broncos history outside of the back-to-back Super Bowl victories. Elvis Dumervil, who was quoted in the Denver Post, clearly agrees.

"Something like this is a historic move," said Broncos defensive end Elvis Dumervil. "I don't want to put too much pressure on one guy, but what he's accomplished, if he's healthy, I think he can bring us to one of the dominant organizations."

Vegas odds agree that Denver can become dominant. Now that Manning is joining the Broncos, only a handful of teams have better Super Bowl odds than Denver.
