Michelle Beisner sounding hearing a much more sober quote from Dove Valley:

Just spoke with Broncos team source - they are still very much in the mix but being respectful of the process as things progress w/Manning

Also, Mortenson was saying not long ago this evening that he expected it to take past the Tuesday 4pm mark for a decision to be made.

God, I want to believe Vic. My guess is he has a different source who might be less of an "official" leak who was willing to shed the poker face a little more than the team wants to right now? Who knows. Excited to see where this stands in the morning.

Until we get it from a more neutral source, it's hard to believe. Sounds like they are confident because Manning contacted them. And since they haven't talked about money it's hard to know if that part can be worked out. Manning might have an unrealistic expectation of what he should make--$30 million plus a season for instance.

It wont be about cap. Broncos already have $44.7m in space. It'll all come down to cash payments in 2012 and how much Manning and his mates eat of the pie.

Either someone inside Dove Valley told Vic something he shouldn't have (for instance Peyton calling to say they are heavy frontrunners, but to keep it under wraps because he still is doing a courtesy meeting with the Phins or something). Or Vic's source was completely wrong.

I think his source is probably pretty good. Really hoping this is just a case of keeping that cat in the bag as per Manning's wishes.

Also, usually Vic has followed any informative tweet with a bunch of follow up responses to people who @ him. This time - silence since the "respect the process" tweet. I think this reeks of a "shut the up and don't risk ****ing this up for us" warning from the Broncos to him.

Vic wouldn't run with a 95% number on something like this unless it came from someone he really trusted and had come through for him in the past, not someone that was prone to make **** up.

Obviously it could be totally wrong in the end, but someone at DV (and I'd wager someone pretty high up) thinks that there's a 95% chance Manning signs here.

NFL Network's Michelle Beisner, Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post, and Andrew Mason of MaxDenver.com all dispute a report that free agent Peyton Manning reached out to the Broncos on Sunday.
CBS 4 Denver's Vic Lombardi reported earlier Sunday night that the Broncos were "95 percent sure" they'd sign Manning based on the fact that he reached out to them on Sunday. Lombardi's report was debunked, both by NFL Net and the Post. Per Beisner, the Broncos had no talks with Manning on Sunday and are being "respectful of his wishes and this process." Since Manning is now considered "highly unlikely" to sign by Tuesday's opening of the free agency period, we wouldn't be surprised if he took one more visit before picking a team. We would expect a decision by Wednesday.

He hurt himself with the holdout. But he's not going anywhere. Peyton could go far on a team with some balance.

And if having one opponent in the division having a breakout year suddenly makes it a tough division... he might be thinking too hard.

The North is a tough division... And if the Colts had been the Colts, the Texans wouldn't have been headliners at all this year either.

No hes still awesome. The team didnt block well and he wasnt in shape. Not his fault the stupid team waited that long, then paid him? What a joke. Why wait so long if you are just going to cave. They screwed themselves. A couple games at the end of the yr though he was showing he still has it. Probably not worth the money though. Hell maybe even Peterson not worth it. Not when every yr there is some good backs in draft. They just get hurt so often.

I've got nothing against Houston. Just saying how it is. 2010 Indy wins that division going away. Houston goes home.

If you shy away from the South because you're afraid of the Houston Texans, your chances of Super Bowl glory are slim to none. I can see not wanting Brady twice a year. But you can't be afraid of every decent team in the conference.

Johnson was in decline the year before he got paid. 2000 yard season 3 seasons ago, then declined to 1300 the year after to 1000 last season. the Titans should have let him walk, because he is at best a 1200 yard back now.

Jeff Fisher said it best when he talked to LenDale White several years ago before drafting him. "I am going to be looking for your replacement in 4 years."

I was making a point that we really aren't in that tough of a division either. If the winning team makes it at 8-8, it should also be a cake walk here for Manning.

If the goal is to win the cupcakiest division, then maybe you're onto something. Not exactly the best way to prepare for playoffs though. Maybe that's been Peyton's problem all along.

I'm not saying the South is the worst conference in football. But it's not anywhere near tough enough that the mighty Peyton Manning should be afraid of it.

The south had 2 teams with winning records. West had none. That makes the south better than the west. So tebows goal is to win in the cupcakiest division?

I don't think manning is afraid of it at all. He would jump at the chance to play for Houston

I misunderstood, I thought you were making an argument for him to go there because of how easy it was, I was just saying ours isn't any harder.

No, but the combination of a better O Line, a running game based around something other than Tebow, and complete familarity with his division opponents (which apparently is important to him) should be interesting to him from everything I've been told.

You don't pay attention. Teams I've picked that has best chance to win a SB are Houston AZ and Niners. Team I want him to go to is broncos.

The Texans started 3-3. Would've been 2-4 had the Colts been the Colts. Fair to say, if not for the Colts implosion, the Texans likely don't make the playoffs. Kube might finally be looking for work.

Doesn't sound like all that tough a division to me. If Manning is going to win Super Bowls, winning the AFC South should be a cake walk.

So let me follow your magnificent argument here: we shouldn't get Peyton Manning because he's not good enough to win. he should, however, go to the south because the south is an easy division. the evidence that the south is easy is that it's current champion, the texans, would not be the champions if manning were playing because he would have beaten them and been the champion of the division.

guys, manning isn't good enough because he's good enough and we shouldn't want him because if we had him you could pencil us in for wins over a team that was on pace to be the AFC's top seed until it lost its three best players, and then nevertheless won a playoff game. and we wouldn't want to beat teams like that because if we did then it would show that manning isn't good enough precisely because of empirical evidence that he is good enough.

Just a hunch here, but I bet Manning makes, or has already made a tentative decision, then puts equal weight into the sentiments of his family, most importantly, his wife. She has to survive the media mania just as much as Peyton does, and my guess is her opinion, along with the feelings of his father and brothers will carry the day.

Also, Manning wants to feel comfortable from the get-go, and with friends like Todd Helton and Brandon Stokley around, he won't feel like he's in a box here

But wait, I thought:

Say what you want, but if KC gets Manning we own the division until he's gone. 11th ranked defense last year without Berry and a good WR corps and Jamaal Charles is already a good cast.
Put Manning with that supporting cast and it's over. Manning at 50% is better than any QB in the division.

I'll be more pleased if we can sign him to a fair contract and keep Tebow.

"keep Tebow." That's no going to happen. The Teboners have made Tebow impossible for Elway to keep around. He comes with too much baggage, Teboners are a distraction and therefore Tebow can't possibly be kept. I'm sure it has already been agreed upon between manning and Elway that Tebow will be traded after the announcement.

The Broncos can still start working on their defensive needs. We aren't bringing in a wealth of offensive talent without Manning, and they'll be his guys who likely will wait until he's found a new home to follow.

So when FA opens we should be pushing hard to lock up our defensive targets ASAP, regardless of who our QB might be.

It must suck to be the Cards or Kevin Kolb. Don't they owe him $7 mil this week? In one fell swoop, they could clean house (several players) and sign Manning - it could be mayhem.

Again that doesn't compute if we're to believe that Manning wants to give his new team the opportunity to pursue the free agents that they'll need. That is, unless those free agents are his Colts chronies who will simply wait to see where he lands before signing.

However, the longer this drags on, the better chance the Broncos have at landing him since they have such a favorable cap situation.

Schefter called the Broncos the “favorites,” while acknowledging that the Cardinals are still “in contention.” The Dolphins seem to have been pushed to the backburner, though, since the South Florida frenzy that left Manning wary of joining Stephen Ross and Jeff Ireland’s team.

The fact that Manning is also done with visits suggests other interested teams like the Titans are not being given serious consideration.

These things can change at any moment, but the Broncos and Cardinals are the clear-cut frontrunners to sign Manning at this point, with Denver possessing a slight edge.

Not really. There's been a lot of talk of keeping both QBs on the roster, or retaining Kolb to trade him to Cleveland. They have a lot of options for cap space as they brought in a number of one and done players to fill gaps. Most of their major players have long term deals and there is a lot of speculation that Fitzgerald will restructure his contract to make it happen for AZ.
