While it makes sense it is still pretty crazy to think of the NFL without Peyton Manning on the Colts. Click Here (espn.go.com). Let the crazy speculation to where he goes begin.

I hope whatever team he goes to it is really worth the risk to him.

I hope Andrew Luck doesn't become a bust from all the pressure that's about to be heaped on his shoulders.

As for Peyton, I believe Dan Snyder's on line 1.

Miami seems like the most ideal fit for him, but Seattle would be GREAT too. They have a very young receiving corps that would greatly benefit from having such a presence in the huddle.

I believe Peyton made history again - it's not everyday you see a football club releasing their entire team in one day.

I really want Luck to be a bust now, just so I can laugh in the Colts stupid faces.

I'm not looking forward to the inevitable Peyton to the Jets rumours to start so that we can get more New York centric focus by the NFL while they ignore the other 49 states.

From everything I have read and listened to, the risk of paralysis, which is what I assume you are referring to is no greater than earlier in his career.

having said that, with all that money and a great offensive mind, I would hang it up and pursue an analyst position or even work to be a coach. But I understand his desire to keep playing.

If i were Manning, my first call would be to Houston. Great youung defense, stud WR, above average TE and a stud RB (and backup RB) and a solid OL. Plus the chance to play Indy, Jacksonville and Tennesee twice each would make it easy to win the division. Plus they are an indoor dome team. Yates can move to backup for three years and learn and take over when Manning is done or gets hurt.

Trade Shaub to Denver or KC or Washington. Get a 2 or a 3 this year and make your run to the Super Bowl.

Of course, Houston will stupidly stick with Shaub and never cross over to elite.

I do not think there is a chance he signs in the NFC due to the possibility of playing Eli in the playoffs or regular season (double no to the NFC East - sorry Washington).

Also I think the Jets are out as it just does not make sense.

KC and Denver are possibilities, but seeing Mannings record in December and January would be enough to turn him to Miami.

I see the Dolphins winning this sweepstakes and singing Manning to a 3 year 45 million dollar contract with a option for a fourth year.

And when that happens and Rex has to face Brady and Manning twice a year, his head may explode (much to my delight).



Life is hilariously cruel.

I hope when he hangs up the cleats, he's healthy enough to go onto TV because he's going to make a fantastic talking head: color man, studio analyst, doesn't matter. He's got as much poise in the booth as he does on the field. I watched him talking to the announcers during a Tennessee Volunteers game last year, and he sounded like he's been a network guy for years.

His remaining field experience is icing on a great career, but his TV work is what I'm eager to see.

I would tie of his garbled voice in short order.
It was pretty nice the way they started Sports Nation with a compilation of Manning clips set to Boyz 2 Men's Its so hard to say goodbye to yesterday song.

I'd go with Arizona. Dome team, upper echelon wide receiver, not the toughest division, and, with the NFL now stressing divisional games the last 2 weeks of the season, the odds of getting a very bad cold weather game are minimal in the division. Home is a dome, road is dome at St. Louis, San Fran where you could get dampness but not cold/snow, and Seattle where you are more likely to get rain than cold/snow. If he goes to a KC or Denver, he could possibly be neutralized in a home playoff game by a bad January day. Although, possibly best line on where he goes is: Seattle, because the words Tavaris Jackson and Super Bowl winning quarterback will never be in the same sentence.

I think we all knew this was inevitable. It was time to move on; hopefully the next guy can give us a good run too.

And stop me if I'm wrong, but I think someone's still a little bit upset about not winning the Super Bowl this year (or the last time his team faced the Giants, for that matter), and is taking his vitriol out on the other Manning.

Latest he would have played a home game in college would have been Thanksgiving weekend. Late December/early January generally does have a greater chance for frigid weather than late November.

Quite. He's been pretty good outdoors in the NFL too.

I can't be bothered going through his entire career stats, but a glance over the last few years' figures (plus watching him in games and stuff) tends to suggest he's none too shabby whatever the conditions.

If I'm a team like Seattle, Miami or Arizona, Manning is worth the risk. Even if it turns out he can't play effectively again, I'd rather see my team take a shot on a QB who can be elite rather than tread water with a QB (Jackson, Moore, Kolb) that they know will always be a liability.

Better this than be the Ravens, 49ers or Jets, who are seemingly content with their mediocre quarterbacks and insist on going carrying knives into gunfights. Apparently the word out of the New York papers is that the Jets will try to get Manning but will keep quiet about it, so as to not hurt Sanchez's confidence. Good lord. Sanchez's confidence should be shaken, he's terrible.

Ladies and gentlemen, the following public service message is brought to you by your friends from D-Generation X, who would like to remind each and every one of you that if you're not down with that, we've got two words for you...

The papers couldn't have been more wrong: Sanchez gets a three-year contract extension (espn.go.com) and the Jets are officially out of the race, along with the Redskins after the trade for the Rams' pick.

If I was forced to, I'd put my money down on Peyton being a Dolphin.

While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.

Report: Tim Tebow gone in Denver if Peyton Manning signs with Broncos


Despite last season's playoff run and intense national interest, the Denver Broncos don't plan to keep quarterback Tim Tebow if they can sign Peyton Manning, according to a published report.

The report from Pro Football Talk, which cited an unidentified "source with knowledge of the dynamics in Denver," said the team prefers to trade Tebow rather than release him.

According to another Sunday report, Manning is down to two teams—and the Broncos are one of them.

"The visit was productive," a Broncos source told The Denver Post. "The team is hopeful and encouraged by the time spent" with Manning.

Manning's agent didn't accompany him to Denver. Manning initially was expected to announce his decision when free agency opens Tuesday, but ESPN reported late Sunday that will not happen by then.

Manning met this past week with Broncos officials, including executive vice president John Elway. No offer has been made. Still uncertain is Manning's ability to pass a physical exam coming off multiple neck surgeries.

Pro Football Talk identified the Jacksonville Jaguars as a potential landing spot for Tebow, a former first-round pick who was a star player at Nease High School in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., and the University of Florida.

Tebow would remain with the Broncos if Manning decides to sign elsewhere.

Manning, a free agent after being released by the Indianapolis Colts, flew to Phoenix on Saturday night for meetings with the Arizona Cardinals. After the Cardinals, Manning reportedly is going to Florida to meet with the Miami Dolphins.

The Denver Post reported that Manning has ruled out the Kansas City Chiefs and Seattle Seahawks.

Meanwhile, Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams wants to sign Manning and says he will do whatever is necessary to convince the four-time NFL MVP to come to Tennessee, even offering up a job in the front office once his playing career ends.

Adams told The Tennessean on Sunday that he has contacted Manning's agent, Tom Condon, to express his interest and ask for the quarterback to visit the Titans.

"I want Manning," the 89-year-old Adams said. "I'd love to see him in Titan blue after watching him so many years with the Colts. ... I want him. I am ready to do what it takes to get him aboard, and I think he'd be the guy to get us into the playoffs."
