This is like the LeBron fiasco. All that's left is a Rick Reilly hosted ESPN special to announce it. Favre+LeBron=Manning.

No offense to you, but at this point, I could give a crap what Mort thinks. That MnFer has made my head hurt all day today and yesterday with his caterwallin' and I frankly want to end him.

This is the whole problem with Free Agency in the first place. For the most part, you're either buying unknown quantities, or you're buying damaged goods.

String what along he just became the highest paid defensive player in the history of the NFL.

Just wait til you see the gameplan that's going to use UFA linebackers to shut down HernandGronk.

Wait until you see the Broncos defense try to be a shutdown defense when they're getting into shootouts every week.

I'm not saying it would be bad to score points early and often, but part of the reason the defense looked better this year is Foxball put them in a bunch of conservative chess matches where neither team wanted to blink first.

When you get a lead, you have to be able to stop the other team's best shot, letting it rip.

Did you choose your college in 1 day? Ever decided between 12 job offers with complex working relationships in hours? Decide to marry within minutes?

I believe if the Broncos or the Titans were ruled out, he would have let the team know. Just like the Fins and Cards. Sorry if the process isn't on your instant gratification timeline.

Wasn't one of the nuthuggers biggest arguments for switching QB's heading into this past season was because they said Tebow playing QB would INCREASE our scoring?

Now, scoring points don't matter when we struggle to do so.....

Ahh, the irony.....

It has been a week of this.

Second, it's not like this has been sprung on him out of nowhere. He's so thorough but did no prep? BS.

Third, he's been in the league for 14 years, I think he has a pretty good baseline on these teams. If not then he should do some prep,

Fourth, his agent has been through this countless times before. This is nothing new to him.

Which brings me to being jerked around. Either he's in or out. If I had been in college for 14 years I would have a damn clear idea where my next one would be. I made the decision to marry my wife in an instant and I wasn't dating her for 14 years beforehand. I do anything for 14 years I can clear a major decision in that field in under a week.

Naw, but you've never been able to follow a simple point, so I won't bother trying to explain it in simpler words.

Fox's gameplan was to go 3 and out the most in the NFL, good call

You think so? I disagree, that makes no sense.

Nor does it follow from what I posted.

Here's a hint -- the post is about the defense, not the offense.

For real. Manning knew months ago he wouldn't be a Colt as did every football fan across the States. He is a shrewd tactician and is playing everyone working his way right toward what he has wanted all along.

this is probably why the US divorce rate is hovering around 50 percent

peyton manning's job while employed by the Colts was not to fish around the league to see where he'd go next. and even if it was, the NFL is not exactly your average work place. the turnover is ridiculous and the top team one year is the bottom the next. I don't think Peyton Manning gives the tinniest **** about the anxiety of the twitterverse. He'll sign somewhere when he makes a decision.

I mean christ, I applied to PhD programs this year and if any of them had told me to give them a decision in a week I would have told them to **** off. and this is a field where the schools hold 100% of the leverage.

Exactly.

Which is a big reason why I am against this 'win now' mode we're on the brink of.

What you don't know about me could stun a team of oxen in their tracks so STFU when it comes to **** you don't know or understand.

You act like Peyton existed in a vacuum, he didn't. He's no babe in the woods he has been around the league for over a decade. He's talked to other players' coaches and I guarantee they've talked about thr pros and cons of various clubs.

Did you have a pretty good idea of the programs you wanted to apply to? Did you do some research and due diligence ahead of time? Did you linger in undergrad for 14 years? Do some programs have better reputations than others? Did you prioritize where you want to go? Yeah, all **** a thinking man does well before decision time and I guarantee PM had this **** in hand. Now is an exercise in pumping ego and bank accounts. Our guys need to show some nut. He who can walk away controls the deal.

His connection to our city through Stokely and Helton are the biggest thing we have going for us outside of Elway.

Also...who knows. Perhaps Ms. Manning is really, really good friends with Ms. Stokely. Might supersede any desire to go to Tennessee. Wouldn't that be something...if she was for Denver all along.
