Default Retirement not on Peyton Manning's radar

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) Peyton Manning flew to New York this spring to pay his respects to Derek Jeter and David Letterman, two much-admired superstars in the middle of their long goodbyes.

"I'm sad to see some of these guys retiring," the Broncos quarterback said at the time. "I'm not far behind."

Yet retirement really isn't on Manning's radar as he prepares for his 17th NFL season, his third in Denver. Coming off the best two-year stretch of his career, Manning is keeping tacklers, tedium and time itself at bay.

At 38, Manning said he'll keep playing as long as he's still productive and loves the game.

That passion and productivity were on full display last season when he won his fifth MVP award and set single-season records by passing for 55 touchdowns and more than 5,500 yards.

There are no signs of his affection or efficiency ebbing anytime soon, either.

"When you don't play football anymore, you can broadcast, you can coach, you can be in management, whatever, but you are not allowed to go into the huddle anymore," Manning said. "That huddle is just for players. You can go into the locker room after the game and you can speak to the team, but I think any retired player would probably tell you they miss the huddle."

The way Manning has guided the Broncos to a 28-8 record over the last two years belies how far he had fallen when he was forced to sit out the 2011 season in Indianapolis and even had to look in a mirror to relearn his release point after a series of neck surgeries weakened his throwing arm to the point he could hardly grip, much less throw, a football.

Manning's reboot has turned into a blessing.

Is there a chance he will not re-sign with Denver?

I think she's saying, what if he plays out his current contract, and still wants to play?

I believe in that scenario Denver (John) finds a way to accommodate him.

I don't think that is even remotely realistic for any party involved. Nor do I think it would be a good idea.

Maybe, if Elway thinks that he's got another QB whose upside is better than Peyton's downsloping career. Yes, Peyton just had his best career year (except for the SB) but realistically, will this continue? I don't think Elway will get tangled up in a stupid contract with Manning, that is, it will continue to be a year-to-year type of contract.

Everyone knows that kFc will give 2 2nd round picks for an over the hill used up QB who has peaked, maybe even more!
