With Peyton Manning becoming the starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos, one of the first big questions appears to be how well Manning fits the Broncos from an X's and O's standpoint. However, the real question is this: How well will current Broncos players fit into the offense Manning is about to oversee?

To me, the Tennessee Titans and San Francisco 49ers were better fits for Manning from a surrounding talent standpoint. But the Broncos have a lot of cap space, and while many of the top free agents have already signed elsewhere, the Broncos are sure to cater to what Manning is looking for from an offensive scheme perspective.
