Couple that with a significant portion of the Denver fanbase being pretty skeptical about this whole thing.

He can't lose in TN as far as legacy goes. He could be kind of a goat in Denver if things don't pan out.

Yep. If you believe that crap it means Manning respects Miami more!

All the guys coming in are defensive, so not crazy to think Del Rio will be in charge of today's recruiting.

Thats funny....because 3 days ago we heard the exact same kind of thing from our media. "its a done deal, meeting with titans out of courtesy"

I assume Peyton doesnt even know, SO NO ONE KNOWS

I'm not skeptical about this at all. If his health checks out and he can throw, give him whatever he wants and make him a Bronco. Denver has the cap room, and Peyton should be able to attract us a few decent free agents that want to load up for a superbowl run.

Very much like Arizona did with Kurt Warner, but Peyton Manning is an upgrade over what Warner was, he's one of the greatest to ever play the game.

Dumb. We need to sign some of these guys, especially McClain.

It wouldn't make sense to me if the Broncos are not really the first option and Manning is wasting their time flying there to watch him throw some footballs around if his mind was made up to sign with the Titans. The respectful thing to do, if he really respects Elway, is to tell him the truth in that case and to move on, not make a 2 hour flight for something that isn't going to happen. That is hardly respectful.

Only thing I'm sure about is this. The Titans may or may not be in the mix at this point. But Denver definitely is.

Yeah, because if Peyton's shown anything this last week, it's been how much he values other peoples' time.

Nope...late evening maybe...7-8 PM. Not before. At least 3 hours travel each way, 2+ hours in RDU minimum and they aint going for a min stay unless Manning ends it quickly by telling them to leave.

Either this is to sign the papers and make an announcement, or its a last chance to change his mind.

I assumed wed that Peyton was meeting Tennessee in NC when their plane headed that way. I had no idea they were going back to Tenn.

This could be the very same deal, and we're flying out to bring him home. The report that it's a workout came from where? I doubt Denver would tip their hand, and Peyton has said NOTHING.

Here's hoping this is just the final drive to bring him back and get his name on a contract.

, well you have to think Manning is enjoying this attention and plays for him just a little bit.

That's what I'm thinking. That this deal is almost done. He's ours. Now just the final physical to be sure before he signs. If he passes the physical today.....he'll get on the plane with them for the trip home.

Using your calculations, how do you get 7-8?

Leave at 8:30.

+3 hours for flight = 11:30

+2 hour meeting = 1:30

+3 hour flight back = 4:30

Your time leaves an editional three hours for meeting with Manning, for five total, if they don't come back until 7:30. 7:30 isn't too late either. Take them to dinner after the defensive staff works them out.

You think Del Rio has contract offers ready to be signed? Or he can bump or raise them? We don't want the guys we want ( McClain ) to LEAVE Denver without signing. Having Del Rio eyeball them only, light workout thing, is kind of insulting to them. Can you please wait until John and coach Fox get back? They really want to talk to you guys.

All the firepower is on a plane to RDU. Including the Money guys.

If they don't have offers that are locks ready and on the table these guys might just flip them off.

Pat Bowlen is still hanging around HQ somewhere, probably waiting to offer refreshments and fill drinks. He didnt make the Manning kidnap err singing trip.

At times like this, I think it's important to use some basic logic. It makes no ****ing sense for Denver to send their entire front office across country to watch Peyton Manning throw if he's going to turn around and say **** you very much I'm signing with the Titans.

Elway and Xanders wouldn't do that. Manning wouldn't do that to the franchise.
