Truthfully, I do have a source who talked to me about the neck, nothing else. Said it's a lot worse than everyone is thinking. I do find it funny teams seem to be showing less interest than originally thought.

As far as him coming to Denver, no idea. I was just playing because of all different theories of one minute this and another minute that. I actually suspect he will sign with Denver, unfortunately.

I'll be pissed for a minute but will get over it if we win some games.

The basic story, though, is that Peyton Manning is a QB who played for the Colts for 14 years.

Now the Broncos and a couple other teams want to sign them, but nobody is sure which one he will pick! Or when!

Personally, I'm puling for the Broncos.

Seems teams are backing off to me. When Denver is his top choice something doesn't seem right.

As far as your article--go to yahoo. There is an article today about curing alcoholism through use of LSD. My point, don't believe everything you read.

Either way Manning is a headcase, seems to be a classic over thinker. In the back of his mind, even if his neck is stronger as some would suggest, his head has to believe that and when he can't tell what is coming from his blindside I hope he is not fearing getting crunched. He has to believe in that neck like it is perfect. That would be difficult. Too risky for me.

Houston Passed
49ers passed with Alex Smith

Just a handful of teams looking at him seriously. Not great for one of the best all time. If he was a healthy 36 year old we would have no chance. In fact he would still be a Colt.

basically anybody that Manning visits is the favorite to sign him along with the broncos. At least we seem to be always in the top 2

Nothing about his health has changed since 12 teams inquired about him. He turned away KC and Seattle. Houston and SF have legit reasons for not getting involved (particularly Houston). Miami and Tennessee are still involved.

Fine but what other problems occur down the road. For every expert opinion you find another expert who disagrees.

Multiple neck and back surgery is not a good sign for a pro athlete.

They used the term due diligence. But, if he was the Superbowl lock guys like you think he is, teams like Houston, SF, and Baltimore would be very interested. Who knows, maybe they are making a mistake.

I get it, but Elway had 0 ACLs and a completely torn bicep by the time he was done. You play 15 years in the league and you're going to be ****ed up no exceptions.

Houston was never in the mix, that was E$PiN. They didn't have the cap room, have a very good QB already and weren't going to change their WCO offense to Manning preferred system. Meanwhile Baltimore is also up against the cap and have committed to Flacco and weren't going change QB at this point.

Peyton will call him up and tell him to fall in line.

Pure Speculation and something to think about: I'm hearing that Manning's contract could be 90M over 4 years with 45 guaranteed.

Keep in mind that Manning is not against putting in a clause to protect the team if he is injured.

If Manning is asking for THAT much money, it has to be contingent on his health.

22.5 mil/year for 4 years and we're protected. I'd do that.
