    Peyton

    Since he's no longer an Indianapolis Colt I think we ought to start a new thread on the travails of one, Peyton Manning.

    I was thinking that Arizona would be the favorite landing spot for him but I also think Seattle will make a big play for him and apparently I'm not the only one:

    I'd retire if I was him. Go out on top, sort of and not have a Emmitt Smith in a cardinals jersey situation.
    Witty signature.

    Re: Peyton

    I'd hate to see him go to the Redskins, who are reportedly going to make a big play for him.

    I think it would make great sense for the 49ers to sign Peyton and Reggie Wayne, but they say they're sticking with Smith.

    Re: Peyton

    It's my guess it comes down to the Dolphins or Cards. Washington may be out due to him not wanting to play against his brother twice a yr, and the Jets are a mess. Should be several teams parked in his driveway come this weekend. My guess is the Dolphins.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    Where's this idea that he doesn't want to play Eli twice a year? I saw elsewhere that he wouldn't want to go to the NFC because he'd have to face Eli before the Super Bowl.

    Knowing as much about Peyton as I think I do, I'd think he's absolutely thrilled for his brother and is ecstatic about Eli's success. He's also probably ready to show Eli who's still the big brother.

    Re: Peyton

    As a Bronco fan, I would love to see Denver sign him. It would give Elway his type of QB and give Elway an "out" as far as saying Tebow could set under one of the greatest.
    Course I doubt PM would want to play in the cold and snow so much of the time.

    Here is an article stating the same thing as my thinking. Not saying it will happen but fun to think about.
    Let me say I like and respect Tebow. However it's not Kyle Orton etc we are talking about as far as bringing in and starting, but one of the best QB's ever.

    Re: Peyton

    My guess is between the Chiefs and Dolphins with the Texans as a darkhorse. AFC teams to prevent the Mannings from meeting in the playoffs rather than the Super Bowl.

    I was right there with you. I am not a Colts or Manning fan, but I found myself reflecting on his career. It will be so strange to see him in another jersey.
    Let's get weird!

    Re: Peyton

    I don't think the guy is done, I think he has 2-3 good solid years left in him yet. If he were to go to a team like the Texans or maybe the 49ers he could potentially win another Super Bowl. But anywhere he goes should at least make the playoffs once or twice during his presence.

    I have always thought the Phins make some sense but my darkhorse is Cleveland, just appears to me a better fit than many might think. They'd need to supplement the offense early in the draft and sign Reggie Wayne but I think it's doable. Plus their defense played pretty well last year.

    FA:
    Manning
    Wayne

    Draft:
    1A - RB - Richardson
    1B - RT - Adams
    2nd - WR - Stephen Hill

    Re: Peyton

    If he can play, I'd like to see my Chiefs give him a test drive. Casell is kaka, and Pioli is too self obsorbed to make a move for RG3.

    I took more heat on this thread than I may ever have during my time on Redszone. I stated going into 2011, I'd take 7 or 8 other guys at QB rather than Manning. Alot of it was personal and questioned my intelligence. I never thought it was this bad, but the risk element had to be considered. The guy is 36 for crying out loud. I don't kid myself, I hit the sell button on Manning at the perfect time, but I never could understand on such a "logic-based" board why my opinion was poo-pooed so much.

    And some rebuttals to me on my opinion...

    Lets just say I am glad you are not the GM of my favorite football team

    It's obvious you are just a Manning hater

    You sound like Colin Cowherd or Skip Bayless

    saying things for attention, or you are just plum crazy. Which is it?

    I mean that with no personal disrespect. I just doubt that person knows anything about this subject.

    Par for the course on RZ but it's to early to say if your opinion has been vindicated or not. I can't wait to see how he fares this yr
